  • I really, really love my 2001 Honda CRV, but am wondering if I should think about looking at new cars. This car still runs great but it's starting to show some wear and tear. Cosmetic things to be sure but like me, if you look worn out, people think you ARE worn out.
  • I'm perfectly happy to spend all day every day (for the most part) at home watching reruns of Law and Order, X Files, and CSI.
  • If you share a wall with a neighbor like I do, you should realize that playing your stereo at top volume is going to have an adverse effect on how said neighbor thinks of you in a kind, friendly way. Pounding on the wall helps, but gets old after awhile.
  • I was at a scrapbooking retreat in Evergreen all weekend and spent my birthday with these women, a couple of them I didn't know at all. They decorated the crop room, the door of my bedroom, brought a cake, and cards. This is the most anyone has done for my birthday for a long time. It was nice.
  • After years of doing it, I've stopped planning times to get together with friends. The result is that I don't really see any of them much anymore. I guess it wasn't that important to them.
  • For a long time now I've thought I need to expand my circle of friends. See above.
  • The Oscars were pretty boring this year. I love movies, and need to start seeing more of them at the theater. Going to the movies is probably the one thing I will actually do by myself and not feel self-conscious.
  • Looks like a beautiful day outside and I should get out and get some sun.

We're in the same situation with Scott's car... we're trying to decide if we should get a new car now while his is still worth $ to sell or trade, or wait until it dies and can't get anything out of it.

Well. I know I am a taker less than a giver. But I love you.
