I'm in the phase of my life where young'uns have taken to calling me ma'am. It's strange. I don't feel any older than when I was in college. Yeah, I know, I look older, but not much. :) But then I look at my 15 yr old step-son and I remember how I saw people my age when I was his age. 30 was o.l.d. Yes, I know, I'm 31. Still.

I've been called to jury duty. I have to show up at the courthouse next Monday morning. I'm not sure if I'm looking forward to it or not. Kind of exciting. I don't want to be assigned to a trial that lasts more a few days though.

I read a blog (can't remember which one) where the author talked about uncluttering her life by first uncluttering her surroundings. That's exactly what I need to do!

Me and The Dentist

I visited the dentist a couple of weeks ago for a standard cleaning. Every single time I go (regardless of the dentist's office) they always tell me what nice teeth I have. Yet, I have this one bad tooth. It's been filled and re-filled and it looks like it's that time to be re-filled again. The dentist looked at it and said she believes it's quite an urgent matter otherwise I may need a root canal. WHAT?! Those were the magic words right there. I hate having work done in my mouth. The thought of pain in my head is scary. Well, I made an appt for Dec. 7 even though my mouth felt fine. Yesterday (YES-TER-DAY) my mouth started to hurt. It still does today. I was laying in bed fretting about it last night imagining all the worlds of hurt she could put me through. Oooh, man! Of me and the dentist, never should the twain meet!

Today 17 of the Miami Dolphin players visited my church where they distributed Thanksgiving turkeys and food to the local community. Being the Communication Director for my church you know I had to take time off from work to be there to cover the story! You'll find some pix of the event on my church blog here.
Just Me

The Lily

Looks like I've done it again - I've helped another to find the light of the blogosphere. This time the victim, er, I mean individual, is my cousin. She's a thinker! And she has such a way with words... so unlike myself. lol. Take a gander at her first post (warning: active thinking required).

Things I NEED:
1. A jump rope (the most feasible!)
2. A total gym (or something like it)
3. An elliptical machine

Things I NEEDED:
1. A long red dress! My baby bought it for me and had it shipped to my job. Can you believe that?! People were trying to get me to try it on, but I'm not wearing the right shoes and you KNOW how that can make or break an outfit.

Am I not the social butterfly lately? Last week was the housewarming, this week was a marriage re-committment event. The people can't seem to get enough of me. LOL. BUT, I got to wear my new red dress. And you know I was the best dressed up in that place! :) I would post a pic but Hello isn't working for me at the moment.

I like what Neena said about love in one of my previous posts. I think she hit the nail on head!

A Public Thanks

I received my Super G wireless USB adapter yesterday. I was so excited!! As soon as I got home I installed it and wouldn't you know it, my connection speed is beautiful! All thanks to NYABG. She bought me a gift certificate for Amazon.com for my birthday (May 25) and I only recently figured out what I needed (besides a ceramic flat iron).

Thank you!

To Love Or Not To Love

Do you think it's possible to truly fall in love with someone when you are already in love with someone else? What would make this possible (or not). If you find yourself falling for someone else, can it be stopped? How can you prevent yourself from getting in a situation like that?

(Don't get any ideas, I'm just throwing it out there.)

...was a nice day. A couple from our church has retired and moved to the west coast of Florida, Cape Coral, and they had their house blessing/warming yesterday. I don't get out much but whenever I do that's when I remember how much I enjoy social settings. There was food, fun, and, of course, the football game. It was a two-hr drive but it was well worth it. Oh, in their garage they have an amazing piece of workout equipment. Hubby had fun coaching me on it. Now I want an elliptical machine and a total gym.

...was SP's birthday. She went out for Indian food and I really wanted to go, but that would have been too much activity in one day for this old woman. I did call her though and wish her a happy birthday.

...my husband was aggravated with me, but I made it up to him. :)

...I checked one of my friend's blogs and he moved it, but he won't tell me where! (He better email me!)

...was the day after the end of my church's evangelistic series. It was a blessing. The guest speaker was Pastor Keith Morris, and what a dynamic speaker he is! My husband has been diligently editing and rendering DVDs of the sermons. No more reports on that guy who was giving me the eye. Thanks to everyone who gave me much needed feedback on that situation. You gave me a lot to think about.

A La Sexy

Maybe I'm inherently sexy?? Maybe. Maybe not. Tiff had a good point about possibly taking some of the responsibility for attracting the aforementioned man's attention. I admit, most of the time I dress to impress. I like to know that I look at least decent if not down-right cute. Dressing "sexily" is not me though. I'm well aware that attire is not the only thing to attract the "eye" and I've been thinking about it. Now, I can add the bit of information that the man in question is a fellow church "brother." I see him (and his wife) just about every week. I like to believe that I'm not acting seductively esp while I'm going about the Lord's work. However, I admit, that I could be. So I talked to my husband about it. He doesn't see it either (he thinks I'm worth his eye 99% of the time. hehe). Regardless, I'll have a talk with God about it and I'll take mental notes on myself. (Benthebald, we'll talk about those scriptures you read.)

The Eye

There's a guy I know, an acquaintance, who's been giving it to me lately. The eye, that is, not "it." I started noticing it about a week ago. My immediate instinct was to continually act as if I didn't notice. I still do that. But I did mention it to my husband. He found it amusing. I told a friend of mine about it (benthebald) and he said my reaction was the best one. Anything else would be letting the guy know that I've noticed his attentions, and that would in effect encourage him to continue. I guess so. It's just a strange position to be in. I'm married and he knows it; he's married and he's knows I know it. Yet still.... Yes, it's nice to be "appreciated" but it's not so nice to be given an unwanted invitation.

I plan to continue on with my tact of acting as if I'm missing his cues. Hopefully he'll give up whatever it is he's trying to do.

My Bad

I know, I could have at least told you all that I'm back from my trek to Georgia. I got in about 1:30 am Wednesday morning. From there it was a looong day. I was fortunate in that my power got turned on sometime Tuesday. Once we flipped the switches in the fuse box, it didn't take long for me to get hot water for a shower and then jump into my OWN bed. That felt so nice.
