Thinking to much does this January 15, 2009

Posted by Theresa Madden in Family, Fits & Giggles.

My family got me a new game for my DS. Since Christmas I have played it pretty consistently.
Hun.dreds. of games. How do I know? It keeps a record and gives me certificates after every hundred. It has crosswords, wordsearch, anagrams…oooh I love it! Every game has 3 levels; easy, medium, hard. And then of course bonus rounds.

So what is the big deal? I am making anagrams in my sleep!?! If I happen to wake up in the night my brain is making 5 letter words, with a set group of letters? Wha?!? I think it must happen if I am really stumped on the long words…trying to finish a puzzle. Cause you know I am all about how fast I can complete them. LOL

Too much of a good thing (puzzles are good for brain cells) is too much and then is not a good thing! So no more, last thing at night working on a hard anagram. Prayer would be much better!

Coffee October 14, 2008

I love coffee. Plain coffee, coffee with flavored creamers, espresso, blended, iced. You name it I probably like it. I ran out of coffee filters this morning and had to have a pot of coffee so I improvised. Come on, admit it, you have too. I used a napkin, unfolded trimmed to fit. (Should have used a paper towel – what was I thinking?). So now there is a pot of coffee all over my kitchen counter. Ugh! I cleaned it all up, and you know I still had to have that pot of coffee. So this time I used the paper towel…success!

I’m sitting here with my computer, my coffee, my girls, WII, Twitter. What more could I ask for? Oh yeah, at some point today we’ll make trip to Bimart to pick up 3 boxes of coffee filters. They fit in my cupboard nicely and I shouldn’t have to worry about making any more messes for the next 4 months or so. Well…

I have stairs and a view! June 16, 2008

Ok, unless you’re in the NMFAPIMWLC you probably don’t care about the stairs. 24 steps and I’m going to use them every day…no elevator for me. πŸ˜€ But everybody’s got to love this view from my new second story office!
View from my 2nd floor office

For the last 2 1/2 years I’ve been in an office 10×12 with no windows and not much people interaction. What more can I ask for? I’ve got a view, stairs to keep me moving, people to visit with. Thank you Lord!

you see a picture of one of your blogging buddies on the coffee table. I glanced down and saw Cathi looking back at me!

I did a double take and alas it was not her. Who was it?

I have no clue, some lady on the front of an A T and T advertisement. But she had the happy laugh going on and gave me the warm fuzzies for a minute!

Where is that coming from? May 28, 2008

Let me set the stage for you:

It has been raining cats and dogs here today so when I got home I turned the heat on just to take the edge off.Β  It only took a few minutes and I decided that was enough, turned it off.

Ok, stage has been set.

Where is that cold air coming from? Oh my gosh – my nose is cold… it is an ARTIC BLAST I tell you!

So, I go to check the furnace because I thought I had turned the heat off. Well, yes, I did, twice. You know what that means don’t you? I wasn’t paying attention the second time to know that I had done it already, and just pushed that old switch right on over to air conditioning. Geez!!

What is the last brainless thing you did?
