I Still Have a Blog

I have positively sucked at updating this.

Life has been busy. I flew from Houston to Cleveland yesterday, and I'm here until next Thursday. School is starting again for Rob and, though I trust the man implicitly, I sure do hate those pretty little college girls that flounce around and hit on him/check him out. I might have to go back home a little more often and kick some co-ed ass...I wonder if my boss would give me time off for that.

I thought I had a blog in mind, but if there was one, it's gone.

New Addition

I bought a car today!

It took a lot of work, some haggling, and help from my darling fiance (I don't have the self-confidence or assertiveness to do this kind of thing), but I am now the proud owner of a brand-new 2010 Toyota Corolla!

I was going to get a used Ford Focus, but because of a special rebate program that I qualified for I actually got a brand-new car for the same price (or cheaper) than the used. Pretty kick-ass. The only thing that makes me a little sad is the absence of power windows/locks, but quite frankly, for what I paid for the car...I can deal with the few extra seconds of work.

This was a big step for me so I was pretty excited.

Headed to Houston on Tuesday, then back to Cleveland on Saturday. Life got pretty damn busy pretty damn quickly.

Yet another giveaway from the Mrs.!

HOLY EFFING HELL, CLICK ME!

She's giving away a baby sleeping assistance kit to help parents whose babies may have issues sleeping (I'm entering for my sister, NOT me!).

Pushing through.

I still have Blogger's Block but dammit, I'm going to sit down and try to write a coherent post.

The new job has been going well, though the travel does take some getting used to. I call Robbie at every opportunity of course (and, I admit it, I even had him put Cypress on the phone once) and so far, so good. I enjoy being challenged at work for once.

One particularly positive aspect of traveling so much is that I have all but gotten over my fear of driving on the interstate. Previously, I white-knuckled my way through merging (if there was more than one car, tears were inevitable) and then stayed in the right lane going exactly 65 or, if I got behind someone slow, maybe around 55. I NEVER passed. But after a few times I realized that dammit, time to man up, and now I can merge like a PRO. I pass everyone who isn't going a solid, consistent speed of around 73-74 mph. Granted, this is on the Maine interstate, which is only 2 lanes for each direction except for a few miles down south. But it's a step.

Also, air travel problems don't automatically make me burst into tears as they have in the past. Now I [to a certain extent] take a, "fuck it," sort of attitude and just deal with what comes. I made sure to enter in all the customer service numbers for the airlines I use so that I can talk to them rather than standing in line with all those other pissy people during a delay. We all know that people are at their ABSOLUTE BEST OMG on airplanes.

Alright, that took all my energy. I got nothing. I want to be humorous, witty, clever, blah blah de freakin' blah but I just don't have it. I suuuure suck at this.

I have come down with...

...a bad case of BLOGGER'S BLOCK.

I got nothing, seriously.

I'm keeping up to date on all of yours, though!
