Friday Fragments

- Why does going on vacation always consist of 20 billion things to catch up on when I return?

- I wish I could win the lottery, so I could vacation all the time and not have to worry about the 20 million things I have to catch up on.

- I really LOVE spring time.... but DON'T like the rain :(

- I have this random bird that keeps landing on the window sill of my 3rd floor office. He likes to sing to me. I wish I could talk back to him with out worring about my co-workers trying to commit me to a padded room somewhere. He could be my new work BFF.

- Bud goes for lifeguard training this weekend. There is something about having your 15 year old son training to save the lives of other people, when you can't even get himto remember to brush his teeth on his own. Is that a boy thing? or just my boy's thing?

- Kenny Chesney tickets go on sale tomorrow! I. Can. Not. Wait.

- I absolutely hate computer viruses. There must be a lot of really, sick, twisted, bored people out there that have nothing better to do then to make me some poor soul spend hours trying to fix something stupid and be completely unsuccessful in fixing it.

- I think I will have oysters and grey goose tonight! Sounds good doesn't it? Wanna join me?

- I am trying to figure out a good weekend for BHE and SW to go on another AMAZING beach trip again this year.... I just haven't told them that yet ;)

I know I promised to share my beach vacation with you all, but my laptop at home has a @#$%^& virus, and I can't do a freaking thing, and blogging at work, well..... I've been so busy trying to catch up from vacation, I barely have time to think. I will, eventually, get around to catching up. I hope you will forgive me ??

Happy Friday to everyone!

Finally home!

Ahhhhh we finally got home today from the beach! We had an amazing week, and I promise to fill everyone in over the next couple of days. I know I have neglected you all and will catch up for sure! For now, I am going to catch up on all of the shows currently saved on my DVR.

The Paradox of Our Age

I got this email from one of my co-workers and it really makes a lot of sense. Especially with everthing going on in the world today :) I just thought I would share on this rainy lovely Friday!

The Paradox of Our Age

The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings, but shorter tempers; wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less; we buy more but enjoy it less. We have bigger houses and smaller families; more conveniences, but less time; we have more degrees, but less sense; more knowledge,but less judgment; more experts, but more problems; more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry too quickly, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too seldom, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often. We've learned how to make a living, but not a life; we've added years to life, not life to years.

We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbor. We've conquered outer space, but not inner space. We've done larger things, but not better things. We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul.

We've split the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We've learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information to produce more copies than ever, but have less real communication. These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion; tall men, and short character; steep profits, and shallow relationships.

These are the times of world peace, but domestic warfare; more leisure, but less fun; more kinds of food, but less nutrition.

These are days of two incomes, but more divorce; of fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one-night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill.

It is a time when there is much in the show window and nothing in the stockroom; a time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight.... ....or to just hit delete.

Remember, spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever.

Remember to say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.

Remember to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.

Remember to say "I love you" to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.

Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again.

Give time to love, give time to speak, and give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.

Ahhh!! My son has his very first job interview today. He wants to hang out at the pool all summer and get paid for it be a life guard at our neighborhood pool. It's a popular job for kids in our area because the hours are flexible and there is no need for transportation.
That makes it pretty competitive.
I am really nervous for him.
I just hope the Pool Gods are watching him today.
Wish him luck!
