Here are some random thoughts that spin around in my head as much as my washing machine spins around (a lot!)...

It's butt cold out, but not too bad without wind. DH is going out fishing tonight and I don't envy him one bit. His is a sucky job in the middle of winter. The next time you have fish, think of what it takes to get to your oven.

It's a 3 day weekend and I am so happy that the girls have time to play. That's right, PLAY. Not with ipods, cellphones, video games, but with their dollhouses and each other. Shhh, they don't tell their friends that they play dollhouse or barbies because it is not cool. Isn't that sad?

I have had one big headache all week from stress and lack of sleep. I am hopeful that the economy is going to turn around with President Obama.

I am on Facebook, but was not sure I was going to like it in the beginning. I dabbled, found a few friends from college and HS that I had lost touch with over the years, but decidedly liked my blogging better. Then I got the hang of the searching for people thing and started looking up summer friends of mine from Ogunquit, ME where I spent every summer 3rd grade through college. Luckily I found my friend Joyce, who I am so so happy to be back in touch with after about 20 years! Someday, I will look for a picture of me and Joyce's brother who was one of my first boyfriends. Think late 1970's, navy blue short shorts with white piping, white tube socks with red stripes..... Groovy for sure.

Evidently, our PTO is planning a big "prom" the end of March for the parents. It has an 80's theme, I've heard complete with disco ball and balloon arch. Since there is no way in hell I am going to fit into my sweet 80's prom dress that I actually wore in the 80's, I may have to start hitting up Ebay. Maybe I can find the DH a nice matching tux?

I'm a "facebooker" too!

My teenagers are mortified, I might add, by this...

It has become a great way for me to stay in closer touch with family and friends that live far away....

See you on FB!

'80s prom? Totally awesome, dude! :)

I feel the same about the economy & Obama taking office: I know it won't turn on a dime, but I hope that small progress is imminent.

I am all about the 80's. It was the most ridiculous, yet wonderful time.

I would totally love an 80s prom. Wait! I had two of them.

I'm on The Facebook too!

I might be slightly over the facebook age limit - I'll have to check into it, because people keep asking me if I'm on it.
Cold that forces a little 'stay in and play' is a good thing!

I felt the same about facebook, until I started finding all my college friends - it is WILD! We are actually planning a reunion in June all because of facebook.

The prom sounds FUN - my kids (yes, even the boys) played dress up with my fluffy 80's prom dress for years - in fact it might still be in the dress up box!
