Why yes, I DO still exist!

HowDEE! How y'all doin'? Didja miss me? Huh? Didja?

Probably not, but that's OK. Things have been humming along at a pretty good clip around here. I'm officially unemployed, which actually feels a little weird. I keep feeling like I'm just off for a few days and then I have a rush of joy when I realize that I'm off for GOOD! I keep thinking of all these things that I can do now, like, "NOW that I'm not WORKING, I can start baking BREAD again!" and I realize that I've never actually baked bread before unless you count bread machine bread, and I don't think that counts. Because there's no kneading. Unless you count the kneading that the machine does. But I don't think that counts. But, nonetheless, now that I'm not having to worry about going to work at 5:00, I keep thinking I'll have all sorts of time to do stuff.

I'm sure that my hubby would appreciate it if I would do normal stuff, like vaccum the 5 inches of pet hair off the livingroom rug. DANG,
Norwegian Elkhounds shed A LOT! Sheesh! I could suck up a whole extra pet! Which makes one wonder why exactly I'm sitting here, writing on my computer, when I have so much else I could be doing. Hmmmm....

Moving on! My birthday was this past Monday and I'm 33 now! Woo hoo! I do adore my birthday! I got a wonderful pair of new tennis shoes, a fantastic thermal cup to carry coffee in, and a HUGE new lap desk. I also got some money from my Momb and I used it to buy a
Magic Bullet which is proving to be just as wonderful as the informercial would have you think. I'm a smoothie making fool right now!

Well, I'm going to go make dinner now (leaving the hairballs until later!), but I want to leave you with this thought. For every fantastic flip and graceful twirl a gymnast does, there are probably ten times that they end up looking like the people in the following video. I'm sorry, I guess it's not right to laugh at other peoples misfortune, but I have to say that I snorted a few times during my first (and second...OK, and my third) viewing of this video.

I've wondered about the Magic Bullet. Is it better than a regular blender?

And, having spent hours sitting at a gym while my kids did gymnastics, yeah, they fall a lot. Even the really good ones.

Ow ow ow ow! To me the video is just PAINFUL. Ouch.

My cousin has the Magic Bullet and thinks it's the greatest thing since sliced bread.

Still watching. OOOOWWWWWWW!!!!

And answering the title of your post: no, you don't. I decided that a couple of days ago. Sorry. :)

Yeah, Lisa's back! I missed you like crazy!

I can hardly watch that video...ouch!

That was very painful to watch, especially the ones on the bars. Oh man, I have to wonder if some of those ever walked again. That poor girl..the last one on the floor..she was just knocked silly, wasn't she?
Oh man!
