a month of daily posting

October 31, 2007

i know i’m a little late in this, but here it goes anyway. i decided to participate in national blog posting month this year. i’m not really sure why, since some days i have to stretch to find blogging material. but maybe this will be good for me and teach me how to be a little more creative.

i could also use some help! if there’s anything you want me to post about or anything you want to know about me, let me know!


happy halloween!

October 31, 2007

i am judging a costume contest tonight at the halloween festivities in one of our cities. i’m excited about it, but i’m kind of bummed about missing out on giving out candy to trick-or-treaters. oh well. we probably wouldn’t have a lot of kids come by anyway since our street is so short. 🙂

what are your plans for tonight?

i had to make this post private because it involves someone i work with, but these are so funny i just had to share.

my boss is running for mayor of our city (another post for another time). today, the two candidates had a debate here on our station. this is an excerpt from the closing arguments.

matt: i want to continue the strong leadership our city has had.

lori: i agree that we’ve had strong leaders, but it’s time for a change.

lori: i know what it’s like to be a minority. i’m a minority too. i’m a woman.


pearl necklace

October 30, 2007

the one thing i still need for my jewelry collection is a pearl necklace. i think every woman should have one. they’re so simple and classy, and are perfect for dressing up with tasteful jewelry. i’ve always wanted one. there are several different kinds. i think my favorite is the freshwater pearl necklace. that necklace looks very classic to me.

my younger brother has been talking about getting a new sink for his bathroom. they have a small bathroom, and a pedestal sink would take up a lot less space. there are some really cool looking vessel sinks for sale now. i love looking at sinks. i’m not in the market for one right now, since i love the one in our bathroom, but it’s always fun to look and plan for the future.

adult diapers

the one thing i hope i never have to buy are incontinence products. just thinking about them embarrasses me. i really can’t think of anything worse than having to go through the grocery store line with those. since i don’t use them, i really don’t know too much about them. that said, at least there are numerous products for people who have that kind of problem.

las vegas

October 30, 2007

i’ve always thought it would be cool to live in or near las vegas. i love vegas, and it would be awesome to live there, especially now that joe’s best friend is in arizona working as a border patrol agent. there are a lot of neat Las Vegas homes for sale. there are some cute houses out there, but the cost of housing is so much higher than it is here!
