Just Stuff

I'm at work and all kinds of random stuff is in my head so this will probably have a lot of unrelated info in it. I know I should be doing my work but I just don't feel like it right now.

  • If anyone who reads this ever totals their car, please understand that it will not be worth what you paid for it or probably even what you expect for it. It is not in perfect condition. All cars depreciate the moment you drive it off the lot. Accept that please and be nice to your friendly insurance representative when they tell you this same info. It's the truth! I just got off the phone with a man who owns a 1985 Oldsmobile Delta 88 (yes it's 20 years old) and he is convinced that it is worth something. It's not!!! And, unless he totally restores it, it will never be worth anything. Thank God you survived the accident and move on. (Sorry DB, but I had to write this even though you told me not to)
  • If anyone needs a reason to restore their personal relationship with God, they should move to Texas. If hell is hotter than this, I am not interested in going there. Of course, that's not the only reason or best reason to know God, but it will be a benefit. I am so hot right now!
  • I think the best thing about having a child is that you get to experience naivete, innocence, and simplicity all over again. Example: My daughter gets excited every single time she sees a motorcycle and tells me over and over "see cycle, cycle". Her dad has one so I guess that's why she thinks it's so cool. She's also very excited that she can almost count to 10. She always leaves out the 4 but we congratulate her anyway. It's so cool to see her learn and grow up. The simplest things give her so much amusement.

Okay, my phone is ringing so I'll stop for now. Eventually, I'll have more interesting stuff to talk about. Oh yeah, I also wanted to add that the pregnancy is probably not as bad as I made it sound in my previous posting. I got a lot of sympathy emails and I really appreciate it. I guess I just had to whine for a moment.

I have 3 weeks and 2 days before the due date for my second child and I am tired! Don't get me wrong, I love the miracle of childbirth and treasure the opportunity to experience this but I am soooooo tired of being pregnant right now. My back and legs ache and I haven't had a good night's sleep in ages.

Okay, I'm through griping. For those of you who have no kids yet, please don't be discouraged. It's well worth it and, like they say, you forget all about it after the kid is here.

A New Beginning

Okay, so I was inspired by a friend to start my own blog. This will be interesting since I've never even kept a journal or diary. But, I'm on the computer daily and I need a forum to gather my random thoughts and events in my life. So, please feel free to read and comment as you wish.
