Why I gave up on "The Road"

I really am trying to read books more often. Sometimes, the books work against me, like this one.

I started reading "The Road" many times. It was sad. I couldn't take it. Plus, I kept waiting for a natural break in the writing so I could feel comfortable putting it down, but that just never happened. Maybe I'm just not smart enough for a book like this, but no matter how many times I have picked it up, I just can't stick with it.

It's not that I don't feel like blogging. I just don't feel like I have much to say. I do have one thing I want to share, but it requires me uploading pictures from my camera and I'm just not in the mood to do that.

I don't know why I'm feeling blah. I just am not interested in writing these days. I think that's probably a strange thing for me to type, since I'm actually writing this blog right now. Oh, and there's that whole day job that requires me to write for my paycheck. Yeah. I LOVE writing about fires that are already out but we sent the chopper so you must make it seem newsworthy. Oh, and the robberies, too! Aren't they inspiring? Some joint gets held up, we shoot it, then - BAM! It's on TV! Doesn't that make you want to watch the news?

I'm hoping to find something that makes me want to get back to writing soon. I haven't touched the book in a few weeks, but getting the stories from my friends has made me laugh and think I need to get to putting those in the book! If you haven't shared your gift story with me yet, what are you waiting for???

Until next time...

My advice

When someone shows you who they are - believe them. Once you've seen their true colors, know that is who they are. You can't change it.

Watch "love actually" next time you're home sick

One of my faves - I turn to "Love Actually" when I don't feel well. I love the different story lines and it makes me laugh. Don't be so surprised I picked a romantic comedy. I do like some of them!

WOW! Ten Years?!?!

I cannot believe it's been a whole decade since "Office Space" was released!

In its honor, I hope you'll take some time to watch the movie this weekend, or at least watch the trailer.

My favorite room

My favorite room is my bedroom. I love to sleep! It's also where I try to do most of my reading. I love the deep brown walls. I also love my comfy bed. It was not cheap but it is worth every penny!

I'm Not As Strong As I Think

I know I'm not some powerlifter, but I like to think that I'm fairly strong. You really can't be a single girl and not be able to move things that are bigger than you. This is why I probably figured I could move my old TV (which, at just 4-years-old, was suddenly dying on me) and replace it with a new one.

I unplugged it and carefully eased it out of the armoire. That wasn't so bad. I was quite surprised at how light my new TV is. I was also surprised it needed assembly. Why didn't the people at Best Buy tell me I'd have to screw the stand on? Here is the new TV in its new home.

Now, I couldn't just leave the old TV in the living room. I knew I would walk into it in the middle of the night and break my foot. So I tried sliding it. Nothing. I had to pick it up. I reminded myself to lift with my knees. That's what I thought I did as I hauled old TV to its current resting place in my office.
Then, I went about my usual tinkering around the house. When it was time for bed, I thought my back was a little sore. Then, I woke up in the middle of the night and realized it was more than a little sore. I tracked down my heating pad and fired it up. I believe I have pulled a muscle in my lower left back. I have moments where it's just a little sore, then others where I want to punch something (don't worry, the dog and cat have not been harmed - though the cat is certainly making it difficult for me to avoid this as he likes to jump on top of me when I get comfortable). I'm not looking forward to putting the clean sheets on my bed tonight as that could be the death of me.

If you don't get another blog post from me, please share some kind thoughts in the comments section about me. Otherwise, I will haunt you.
