New Title and other random things.

Ok just in case someone else besides Alicia (Hey Girl!) reads my blog. I did in fact change the title. I got bored with the other and come to find out it looks like a pretty popular title on here. So not wanting to be "in" with the crowd I decided to change it.
I'm trying to think of some good story to post. But I have nothing. It's summer, it's hot. I try to do as little as possible on the weekends (which most of the time I don't succeed). But I always end up doing things other than the stuff I think I should be doing. I always have this guilt when I go to the pool or something on Saturday. I keep thinking, I should at least do a couple loads of laundry and unload the dishwasher before I go. But do I? No sir! I load up my beach bag and high-tail it to the pool. My parental units would be so disappointed (if I told them). Though they tried their hardest to instill in me the idea of getting the house clean first on Saturday, then you can go have your fun; well lets just say as soon as I had my own place this concept flew right out the window. Although I do wish the instruction and practice had stuck with me. Or maybe I just got burnt out on it in high school and that's why I despise doing it now. Either way it's sad to say my husband is also lax in the up keep department. Which does not bode well for our household. Don't get me wrong our house is not dirty. We do clean we just don't enjoy doing it. But it stays so cluttered all the time. So to those of you out there that are offended that we never invite anyone over. THIS is the reason. Pure laziness. But hey it's summer. And I'm going to go with the "it's too hot" excuse. I'll just meet you at the pool somewhere instead. :)

Where did the time go?

Why does time seem to go by so much faster once you’re out of school? Is it because technically there’s nothing to look forward to? I mean, I know there are things like marriage, children, etc. But I mean those things like going to high school, turning 16, turning 18, and turning 21, which all teenagers dream about. Is it because there aren’t any more of those milestones that time goes by so fast? I’m mean are we as really excited about turning 30 as we were about turning 16?
Ok you may be asking. Why is she on this (for lack of a better word) tangent? Well for one my baby cousin Emily graduated from college this past weekend (well weekend before last). COLLEGE!! And #2 the day after my baby cousin graduated it was the 6 year anniversary of me graduating from college. And # 3 this month marks the 10 year anniversary of graduating from high school. So it just gets me to thinking wow, where did the last 6 years go? Or the last 10? It seems like yesterday that I was freaking out over some systems analysis & design project that was due. Now here I am doing the 9-5 (or technically 8-5) everyday, week after week, year after year. Maybe it’s monotony that makes time go by so fast.

Why in the World?

I was doing this little questionnaire thing on facebook earlier. The topic was “firsts in your life”. One of the questions was name the first movie you could ever remember watching. Well immediately “Gremlins” came to mind. Although I think I remember my mother saying the first movie I ever saw was “E.T.”, however, I actually remember going to see Gremlins. It was 1984, I was 3. (yes 3) I went with my Mom and my MawMaw Wales. (This blows my mind that she went to this movie, and if any of you ever met my grandmother you’d know why) Something tells me I may have had something to do with the picking of the movie, because I cannot fathom why a mother and a grandmother would pick out this movie on their own. Well while we’re on the subject why would they listen to a 3 year old? Anyway, I don’t remember much about the movie. But the situation inside the movie theatre I do remember. We sat in the center of the theatre my Mom on one side of me and MawMaw on the other. My grandmother’s hands were over my eyes and my mom’s hands were over my ears and my hands were firmly pressed against my mother’s as if her hands weren’t blocking out the sound enough. I don’t know that we actually made it through the whole movie. My mom says we did but I have my doubts. But I bet we had people in that theatre cracking up.

Video Games

Ok, is it just my husband or do all men when playing video games have to turn the TV up almost as loud as it will go so it feels like they are actually in the middle of World War II Germany (or Yankees Stadium, or the Superbowl)? I mean when the bombs explode on the game you can feel it in the floor (quite an accomplishment seeing how we do not have surround sound so it's just coming from our poor little TV). I'm sure our neighbors think we're freaks cause of all the shouting (cause yes, you can hear it outside). But at least the shouting is coming from the video game and not us (unlike some people in our neighborhood - ahem). Even poor Coy gets gun-shy. Then of course the hub gets all huffy when I ask him to turn it down. Like it's not as much fun when it's not at 500,000 decibles. I'm sure he has his gripes to, but at least when I play guitar hero I don't have to feel like I'm actually performing on stage with Aerosmith. :)

Getting Started

Ok, I've done myspace, facebook, and twitter. So now I thought I'd try this out (I didn't realize how popular it was). I don't have any idea what to blog about. My life really isn't that interesting. I don't have kids to talk about or an exciting job. I will post some stuff later.
