My husband’s ex called the other day and left a message that she needed to speak with Tony and it was urgent.  We were tired after cleaning out our garage, but I made him call her anyway.  I’m thinking somebody is in the hospital or injured in some way.  She doesn’t answer when he calls.  She calls back shortly after he lays down to take a nap.  I wake him up, again, fearing something has happened with one of his daughters.  What was so urgent you might ask?  One of the boys in Ashley’s confirmation class has a crush on her.  And, shockingly, she may like him too.  She even went on a “date” with him.  I think next time I’ll let him sleep.

I reenlisted on the 30th of April.  Hopefully, it will be the very last time I reenlist. Ever.  After I finished my Oath of Enlistment, one of my co-workers quipped, “You did that better than Obama.”  I thought it was funny…especially since I DID almost mess it up and had to supress a giggle that was threatening to escape about half way through it.  I also find it funny because the Oath of Enlistment is about three times as long as the Presidential Oath…thought that’s more funny strange than funny ha-ha.  Strange because I’d say HIS job in considerably more important than mine.  You’d think he’d have more words to say to reflect that!

I think I’m addicted to Facebook.  I watched a report on CNN about Facebook addictions and I seemed to fit most of the descriptions.  I’m constantly checking Facebook from my phone and it’s one of the first things I log on to on my computer.  I think I need an intervention.  Or a support group.  I wonder if there’s a Facebook group for Facebook addicts.

Speaking of interventions, I love the last few episodes of How I Met Your Mother.  And while I was disappointed at first, I’m glad now that Stella isn’t the mother.  I hope I’ll still be able to see it when we move to Italy.  I may have to have my mom video tape it.

We had our first showing tonight!  Wouldn’t it be something if we got an offer?  I know it’s asking for a bit much though.  I’ll be glad when the house sells though.  Three days of keeping the house “show ready” have already worn on me!

  1. I’m glad Stella wasn’t the mother too, I was worried for a bit there. Congrats on reenlistment, that sounds like a mouthful! Good luck with the house sale…

  3. I can’t imagine keeping my house “show ready” for longer than five minutes. My kids are like wild, filthy animals. Really, I don’t see how a crush is an urgent parenting matter, although I might feel different when it’s my girls, probably not by much though.

  4. I haven’t watched that show in ages. I don’t even know who you’re talking about…sigh. One day, I’ll get tv back and have to go through a whole lot of shows.

    I’m pretty sure if there isn’t a Facebook group for Facebook addicts, it’s because they’re all maxed out on the amount of groups they can join.

  5. I am totally addicted to Facebook. In fact, I am sure that I, single-handedly, am responsible for the fact that my agency has put a block on Facebook.

    I want to call IT and tell them “I’m SORRY, ok? Just give it back and I promise I won’t be on there so much. Please … just give it back.”

    They blocked GLBuzz too … I’m half expected SH to be next. SIGH.

    So I did what anyone else would do. I submitted six applications to other agencies today. Hah! Hey … if I get called in for an interview – you think it’ll look bad if I ask them if they have access to Facebook?
