10 Random things from the last 10 days...

10 days ago we did this



I cried some. Okay, I cried more than that. Whatever. Don't judge me. Congratulations to my daughter and her best friends, Virginia and Rhea!

After seeing some of the graduation pictures I have decided YET AGAIN to get back on track with weight loss. Just as soon as 4th of July weekend is over. Because how can you diet over 4th of July? Or probably after my birthday. Because how can you diet when you want to eat birthday cake? Or maybe after.....

The AC has gone out in our house. With temperatures forecasted to be in the high 90's (or 100 on Sunday) we are under the gun to get this situation resolved. My husband normally keeps our thermostat set around 68. No, I'm not kidding. I usually wear a sweatshirt and slippers. Well, not JUST a sweatshirt and slippers but you get the picture. So I'm actually thawed out and happy and my husband is miserable and cranky. Last night it was a balmy 82 degrees in our house and ManPryor was none too happy as he sulked upstairs with a floor fan in his hand to go to bed.

This is my mother. At the graduation bbq. This was meant for the bbq master ManPryor but it was too hot to wear it. It fits her perfectly, don't you agree? Maybe a little too perfect.


My sister gave me some cute shirts last week. Really cute. I wore one to work yesterday. It is green with some gold sparkly running throughout it. One hour in to my work day my desk area looked like Tinkerbell had been running amuck. I shared my pixie dust with some of my crew members. I'm sure their wives will be thrilled as they try to explain, "I really WAS at work, honey!"

Big Red has been returned. All fixed up and shined up and pretty. I'm sure he's happy to be back home. We are feeing very overprotective and will be getting an alarm system installed as soon as our home AC is fixed. Priorities, people. ManPryor needs to be happy before inadament object Big Red feels secure.

This is me taking a picture of my brother taking a picture.

We aren't normally so immature, taking pictures of such stupid things. Yeah. That's right. You heard me. We are pretty serious, mature people who take outstanding pictures of things really important that document a wonderful time so that we can remember them forever. And share them for generations to come. Well, except for these two. And the picture of my mother. And these....


How many drivers out there really think the rule of "slower vehicles use right hand lane" really means "slower vehicles use the left hand lane for MILES even when there are many vehicles behind you that want to go the speed limit and you are not allowing that to happen." Based on my commutes to and from work this week I would say about 278 in the Sacramento area alone.

This is a picture of my sister's mouth. Specifically her "bling". Can you see it? Don't be jealous. It's only temporary.


Is it weird that she has been listening to a lot of NWA, Eminem and Snoop Dogg? I think she is secretly enjoying it and I'm wondering if this is just the first step towards this:


I'm traveling to Los Angeles for work this weekend. The last time I went to our southern office this happened. I will be taking every precaution I can to ensure no wardrobe malfunctions take place. I will also be traveling with a sweater. Just in case. My hope is that the trip will be completely uneventful.

You are probably hoping for something different. Like something more typical for me. I'm not even sure what typical for me is anymore. Either way, I'll update when I return.

Or sooner if necessary.

I'm hoping it's not necessary. But I've already covered that.



  1. The graduation pics are beautiful! I hope the air gets fixed and Operation Pants in L.A. goes well!

  2. You have been incredibly busy! Love the graduation pics (and the picture of your mother). I'm sorry about the a/c! It's a tough time to have that break. :\

  3. @Patti H I would be more than happy for someone else to experience how great it is to be me. You signing up?

  4. @Amy
    Thanks! We are on track for the AC to get fixed tomorrow. Keeping fingers crossed for "safe" travels. lol!

  5. @AlliWe are thoroughly enjoying the picture of my mother. She has a different emotion. Joy is not it. lol!

  6. I think it funny that you & i & our hubbies are just the opposite. I can't handle the temp. extremes at all. If i'm cold i can warm up, but if i'm hot i what? Cold shower? How many of those can i take?

    Hubby loves the warm/hot weather - i wilt. He wants to use the flannel sheets all year long.

    You can come visit BB (you're in LA anyway). :) It was 78 for a high today, tho. Getting hot! Although last night's low was 30F.

    Your daughter looks lovely & it looked like a happy family party. :)

  7. Glad the graduation went well and you survived! I hope the AC is fixed soon and I am glad that you got your truck back!! No comment on when to start healthy eating and excercise from me - we saw my mom yesterday and she had made my favorite cake for my b-day early - 5 of us ate a 3 layer coconut cake in less than 24 hours!! lol
