No, this is not a scheduled post. This is real.
I'm up at an hour that God did not make for man to be awake.
And actually I've been up now for 40 minutes.
I do not recommend sleeping for about 4 hours then getting up at 2:30am. Nope, I don't.
I knew Dennis would still be awake. It's only 1:30am for him. Punk was going to sleep.
I'm eating my blueberry muffin cereal while waiting for my coffee to brew. French press.
In a few minutes from now a friend is going to show up at my house. And I'm driving her to the Sacramento Airport.
Cause I'm nice like that.
Then I'm going straight to work. Where I'll try to avoid sleeping at my desk, while I'll try to self insert and IV to add a caffeine line.
Free lunch today! Happy 25th Anniversary Hilmar Cheese!
Gotta make dinner tonight. I'm thinking lasagna. Layer and bake, baby. Layer and bake.
And what will I do while it's baking?

Important Women's Health Issue:
- Do you have feelings of inadequacy?
- Do you suffer from shyness?
- Do you sometimes wish you were more assertive?
Margaritas are the safe, natural way to feel better and more confident about yourself and your actions. Margaritas can help ease you out of your shyness and let you tell the world that you're ready and willing to do just about anything. You will notice the benefits of Margaritas almost immediately and with a regimen of regular doses you can overcome any obstacles that prevent you from living the life you want to live. Shyness and awkwardness will be a thing of the past and you will discover many talents you never knew you had. Stop hiding and start living, with Margaritas.
Margaritas may not be right for everyone. Women who are pregnant or nursing should not use Margaritas. However, women who wouldn't mind nursing or becoming pregnant are encouraged to try it.
Side effects may include:
- Erotic lustfulness
- Loss of motor control
- Loss of clothing
- Loss of money
- Loss of virginity
- Table dancing
- Dry mouth
- And a desire to sing Karaoke
- The consumption of Margaritas may make you think you are whispering when you are not.
- The consumption of Margaritas may cause you to tell your friends over and over again that you love them.
- The consumption of Margaritas may cause you to think you can sing.
- The consumption of Margaritas may make you think you can logically converse with members of the opposite sex without spitting.

Did you also know that Polaroid is no longer making the film for their cameras? So basically you've gotta find it on ebay and buy enough to last you a lifetime and be willing to pay an arm and a leg for it. Or you visit the Polaroid project and download a simple little program that will "develop" polaroid pictures for you based on your digital pictures.
How freaking cool is that?!?!
So this is what you do. Head over to the Polaroid project website. Download the program, for absolutely free. Install with the simple click of a button, or 2. Follow the directions, extremely simple. And "snap" away. Totally cool!

I'm off from work.
On my way to a hair appointment. I'll be getting something done that I haven't had done in eons. Stay tuned, pictures to follow later.
Then I gotta get stuff to make a fruit salad for TND tonight. Go to friend's house to prepare said salad. Then hang out for a couple hours with great friends and good fellowship.
On the plus side, my great aunt left today. Life can get back to normal.
Whatever that is.

- You're just that into yourself
Self-confidence!!! Get some, or guys are going to pass. Girls with low self-esteem come across as needy. And needy girls don't get the guy. How do you show that you're that girl? Don't promote yourself, but rather show your interest and curiosity in the guy.
- You've got a burning passion...and not just for him
Men are attracted to women with clear interests and lots of enthusiasm. Drop subtle hints on your latest adventure and project. The guy won't feel like he's completely responsible for your happiness, and he'll be more inclined to want to be part of your multifaceted life.
- You know how to compromise
This is one of the most important skills if you're looking for a long term relationship. Being flexible is a huge turn-on, it means less conflict. Prove you know how to compromise early on by letting him weigh in on the restaurant choice or not acting annoyed if he changes plans.
- You dress for guys, not gals
If you're not turning heads, it's because you're not dressing for the guys. Peasant tops and skinny jeans are all cute, but you might as well be wearing your flannel pajamas. Men want to see curves, so dress to accentuate. There is a fine line though, so don't cross it.
- You're over your ex
Before you get serious about starting a relationship with a new guy, make sure you're not hoping or trying for one with your old guy. No one wants to feel like their in an unwinnable competition; and if you're living in the past you won't truly be motivated to move on the the future and connect with new guys.
Now if only practicing were easier than preaching...

Last time I posted questions and answers it must have sparked something with others. YEAH! So here are some more questions that a friend wanted to know about.
- What is your favorite sport to play? to watch?
Good question! I don't play a lot of sports, and if I do..., well I never do. I'm not the most coordinated when it comes to hands/eyes. I enjoy watching both forms for football/futbol, Football and Soccer.
- If you were independently wealthy and could do whatever you wanted with your life and time, what would you do?
Personally I would travel, everywhere. And I would support whatever hobbies I have, photography, etc. But I would also donate to charities and Christian organizations. Of course I would buy a house, but nothing to large and flashy, something simple and homey. Would I still work? Probably, but not what I'm doing now. I'd rather do something where I pick and choose when I want to work. Like own my own business of some sort. But I still would like to be able to give my time to church, missions, etc. So working with my own schedule would allow the freedom to do what I want with my time. Oh boy, this list could go on and on forever.
- I always see a lot of flower pictures for POTD - is there a special reason for them?
Well, to be honest, there isn't a special reason for them. They are available and easy to photograph. My mom's garden is constantly blooming with some flower right now, so I just bring my camera over and snap away. I'm good with still photos, gotta start working on people photos. Any one up for a photo shoot?
- Which cartoon character do you most identify with? What about historical figure?
Oh geez! The last "cartoon" I watched was Bolt. Or was it Up? I haven't watched cartoons besides as movies in years. So I don't think I could properly answer that questions. Same with the historical figure. That takes too much brain work right now.
When I say down the road I mean after someone asks me a question or two and I realize I've had a post in "draft" form for awhile.

So here's the low down... For this one you are supposed to write 10 blog commandments for your blog. The definition of a commandment for this tag is not biblical but just 10 things that you live by...non spiritual...everyday stupid life things. Like... I believe scented detergent is for morons...those type of things (I have no opinion on scented detergent, this is just the tag I picked). Also, as these are just opinions for YOUR blog these rules don't apply to anyone else's blog so reader's don't be offended and posters don't hold back.
Then you tag some ONE person to do it. I'm gonna break the rules and pick two people. So I tag Danae (on summer break and has time!) and Treva (gainfully unemployed with time).
- Pictures - I'm a visual person. And I like pictures. Too many words without pictures and I get bored. Plus, I just love pictures.
- My blog = my voice - This little corner of the internet is my place to say whatever I want to say. Be it good, bad, or ugly. So I may say something that you don't like or agree with. Fair enough. I may say something offensive. But sometimes I've just gotta vent or voice my opinion.
- Consistency - Consistently follow a theme (cooking, kids, travel, etc.) or consistently be inconsistent. That's my approach, inconsistent and random.
- Update - Whether it's daily (of multiple times a day), weekly, or whenever, just keep your readers up-to-date. If it's been awhile, or it will be awhile, just let people know that you're still alive.
- Share the Love - If you find an article, website, tip or whatever that you find is interesting, share it! But don't fill you blog with just that...unless you're consistent and it's your blogging topic/focus. Oh, and give credit where credit is due whether it be by a link or a sited source.
- Make it fun! - Or funny. I like to laugh. I like making others laugh. I like when I can display my humor in a visual/verbal way in my blog.
- Crude is rude - I try to watch my language in all areas of my life. Sometimes I fail, but I sure try. I'm not a fan of blogs that drop the f*bomb every other word or always make lewd comments.
- Develop a schedule - If you're gonna do something like "Wordless Wednesday" whatever it may be, keep up with it.
- Comments - I love getting comments. It means a) people are reading, b) people like what they're reading, and therefore c) people like me! Great logic isn't it?
- Have fun with it! - That's what blogs are all about, right? Having fun? I think so. Sure, there are serious ones out there that get all deep and philosophical or political, but maybe that's fun to them.
Starting with Easter weekend... (Shush, I know that was like 2+ months ago!)
Coleman was my key superstar helper! He rocked!
Good job guys! Keep up the good work! Thanks Chris for all your help!Paige did come out and help a little later. She helped move things along.
Continuing on the following weekend. This time I recruited help. I'm truly blessed with great friends and family.
Rockin' brick chippers! Reusing bricks = save $$$. Reusing bricks = extra work to make them usable.
Notice the driveway back there?Thomas did some sort of Irish jig to stomp the bricks down and get the quick set cement stuff to settle.And now I have my path...
It's not perfect. But I love it! I love that we did it. With our own bare hands. And saved money while we were at it.
Doesn't it just help complete the house and give it some curb appeal? Yea, I thought so too.
