I know I should walk away but pride gets in the way and you keep on trying to knock some sense into the idiot that thinks they know everything. I have no problem admitting when I am wrong.... but when you are 110% sure you are right and you have the facts to back it up, it is just so hard to shut up and leave it alone. Why do I put myself through the stress and most importantly... why do I value the opinion of an imbecile?????? Serenity now! Serenity now!! repeat, repeat, repeat. Thank God it is Friday!!!!

Valentine's Day that is!!! You either love it or you hate it. I love it!!!! Yeah, I know it is super commercialized and all that... but it is still a great time to take a step back and acknowledge all the special people in your life. Nix the candy hearts and cheesy traditional Valentine's type of gifts (everybody who knows me is aware of the fact that I will get violent if they ever give me a stuffed animal as a gift... unless it is a Steiff bear which is a whole other story!!!) So on Sunday..... bake your sweetie a wonderful breakfast, take them out to lunch, or even write them a touching poem. Make a card...don't buy one. On Valentine's day, it really is about the thought and not just buying some meaningless gift.

I know, I know... you should never take rain for granted here in Texas...... but I really need a break. We have had so much rain here in the last few months that the ground is completely saturated and it is not sinking into the dirt/grass. Some of the standing water is even growing green slime. Actually, the bricks on our house and the sidewalks are turning kind of green too! To top it off, it is cold.... 39 degrees or so. It was 72 degrees just 2 or three days ago..... no wonder everybody around here is sick. To change things up I had been walking/jogging around the three acres on the side of the house instead of chugging along on the treadmill and now I am stuck inside because of all the standing water. I am really getting into this outdoor walking....it is amazing how fast the time goes by. When I am on the treadmill I feel like I am looking at the clock at least every five minutes or so. Last night I was dreading the treadmill so much that I jogged in place in front of " The Millionaire Matchmaker" which just about killed me. I am really feeling it today and I am d-r-a-g-g-in-g. Why is jogging in place so much harder than doing it outside or on a treadmill? Not much else to say... this rain has me in a funk...... oh, by the way.... it was a damn red wasp that bit me in my bed the other day!!! No wonder it hurt so bad!!!! I took great pleasure in squashing the little sucker when I found it buzzing around my room a couple of days later.
