ArchAngel (276)

Pretty much the biblical concensus is that angels aren't female. Let me know your thoughts on this lady. Do you have a preference on which shot is best?? Go ahead, click on it so you can see the details.

Chasing Sunsets (277)

Literally I left work and drove the opposite way of home. Trying to catch this sunset. Never quite got there , it just seemed every stoplight was bound and determined to stop me. One thing about Texas, there is beautiful sky here.

The real Monday Post (278)

I haven't decided if I have to start over or not. Most of me thnks I'm just gonna move forward with the countdown since indeed I had my photo and blog planned out last night and just didn't seem to get it updated somehow....


As for today, it's all about the cell phone. Sometime last week I washed my phone. I had to not only throw away the phone, but also the sim card in it. So, I have no phone numbers. Good news, we're all up for our contract renewals so "free phones" for everyone...yeehaw. Actually they have to mail it, so who knows how long that will take. Now I have to decide if I do the 16 year old girl thing and advertise on Facebook that I need to get everyone's phone numbers back (Text me bitches).

So in the meantime, Tom went and got Lauren an Iphone this weekend and I got her messed up ridiculous phone until I get the different phone. We went into at&t this weekend to get a new Sim Card for me. Oh my goodness, don't people have other things to do with themselves?? This place was crazy crowded. The staff were all smarmy like car salesmen, creepy. And people--just pick a phone already, how many questions can you possibly ask about the phone and every accessory ever made for it. Do you really need a salesmen to discuss with you the difference between a plastic and/or rubber cover??? You suck. I can't stand you almost as much as I dislike women who own a Lexus.


My last phone was a razor...just so happened to be the razor of Lauren's that got washed (still worked after that except for the 7 key and how often do you really need that?). So we got Lauren a new razor and I got the old one. Now I have her 2nd razor and the outside screen is completely broken and not working and I'm pretty sure I'm gonna cut myself on the shards. The inside screen works. The wallpaper is a picture of some boy. Good greif it took me 3 hours at work to figure out how to change it to some preset thing the phone came with, I was terrified someone was gonna see said boy and I would be "that creeper mom" with a photo of my daughter's ex-boyfriend on my phone.

I think I'm gonna get that stupid phone they advertise for old people and the elementary kids with the really big keys and no options. At least I'd be able to figure out how to do it.

Sunday blew....(279)

Quite literally the whole weekend blew. It was way too windy and the days blew on by.

Emma is sick right now and it was about 2am when she woke that it finally sunk in for me that I hadn't posted my blog. I had really thought I had posted it up till then. There goes the ADHD kickin in. I almost got up at that point and posted, but I guess I just don't like you all enought to do that.

Earth Day (280)

Coffee Time (281)

I love the fact that the faces of the clock are different, and both just happen to be the wrong time to boot.


Twice this week I stopped at the Starbucks for coffee before work. It's a frustrating thing because neither time was a good experience. Let's point out, my coffee is very easy. I'm not a coffee Con-o-sewer. Venti with one sweetner. How hard can it be???


Both times the pompous 17 year old "barrista" comes to the window and says with a smile. The coffee just ran out while pouring your cup and can we please top it off with some other crappy stuff we have back here...(not exactly in those words but same meaning). First of all, your job is to make coffee. How do you run out? Twice?? Now you tell me you've poured the swill off the bottom of the pot in my cup and you wanna top it off with some other mutant bean thing back there. Well, by all means do this and charge me a dollar more than the 7-11 please. Also, while your at it put a crappy lid on it which leaks on my hand the whole time I'm walking into my office.


I went there not just once, but twice. Why would I do this??


The all American enticement----"Drive-Thru".

Wishing for..(282)

something good to show you. Thank goodness for this weekend coming up. I feel like I haven't gotten to shoot anything good in so long. I really need to be able to get out and do that.

Metamorphasis..(283)

I have nothing for you. A photo of this house that I've been stalking for the past two weeks. I know igt looks like a nightmare in the making, but I promise, next time I show you photos of this yard you will be pleasantly surprised. I wouldn't be surprised if our Homeowner association make these folks miserable.

Water Works (284)

I don't know why Tom hasn't put one of these in our back yard yet?? Again, the lighting wasn't ideal, but just to be immersed in the sounds of all these water fountains around you was so relaxing.

This leads me to another quick story. I was a bit perturbed because I noticed our neighborhood pool area just removed the mini playground toys they had there. It was a little climbing set like you'd have in your back yard and any child over the age of 6 would have been bored with it. I didn't quite understand why they removed it except that there always seemed to be wood chips drug into the pool from this play area. Whatever, no skin off my nose. The neighborhood homeowner association is always up to something or another and Tom and I learned many years ago to stay away from all that nonsense.

I noticed last week them laying pipes in the area and concreting it over and wasn't quite sure what was up...till I noticed the tubes coming up out of the ground...They are putting in a children's splash play area. Up till several months ago I would have grumbled and been cranky about how our homeowners fees were being spent. Now however, I'm very excited about it and think it's gonna be great fun to take Emma up there this summer. I guess it's just a matter of perspective.

The Dentist or the Lawyers?? (285)

This was parked in front of work the other day.
I'm about positive nobody I work with owns this puppy. So, it's either one of the Lawyers or the Dentist in the building. What's your guess? I'm laying odds it's the dentists'. It's a Kit Car, and those are not an inexpensive endeavor.

Healthcare and Snow.....(286)

I decided not to acknowledge either of them today and made these flower cakes instead. It's just a wee little 6 inch pan which has been fun to play with.

Roadside Memorials (288)

This one is on Midway just south of Beltline. I've passed by it for years and don't know the story behind it. Total assumption on where this is located makes me think it must have been alcohol related. That's also near where they've had all those cases of people entering the tollway going the wrong direction.



There are some nice clubs and restaurants there and after a certain time in the evening you just have to assume the people leaving those places are pretty lit. I'm glad I don't work the later shift anymore, it did get a bit dicey on Thursdays and Fridays.

Why is the bird pointing down?? Aesthetically I feel like it should go up.

wah- wah- walking..(289)

So, I've decided to walk more. I got a pedometer and wore it for about a week to get my average steps and am going to slowly increase my steps week by week. Why do this?? Why not??

I could give a bunch of reasons why I can't , shouldn't or won't--but it's all just excuses. I think I'll just do it.


I saw this man running the first time in the fall. It was pouring rain and he had his shirt off and was looking up shaking his face and simply relishing the rainfall. He always runs barefoot. I have seen him almost everyday since then running and running. He's about one million years old. I love his purple sweatshirt. Some days he has bright turquoise shorts he wears. He is 'the shit'.


So, I'm gonna walk.

Nodding off...(290)











This is on the way back to the parking lot. Emma had fallen asleep during her ride.

Time and Space..(291)

Here it's Spring Break for the kids. I don't want to rush it for them, but hey, I'm ready for the weekend already.
These photo's were all snapped at the Dallas Zoo. As everyone know's, I prefer the Fort Worth Zoo. However, Kudo's to Dallas as they are currently constructing new habitats for some of their larger animals so hopefully they'll have some room when that's done. Talk about 'caged animals'.

Spring Forward...(292)

I am so happy we sprang!! I come home and it's light enough to take the retard dog for a walk. She does not deserve it, but I do. After being cooped up at work it's nice to get out for at least 15-20 minutes for a quick one.

Can you beleive those eyes Emma is cutting at Tom??? I can hear her thinkin "What choo talkin bout Willis? Those monkeys do what?? " Too funny.

Three little monkeys sitting in a tree...(293)

Beautiful day at the zoo. I'm too tired to write a bunch about it now. But here's a couple from today.
