Well, I'm thrilled to learn from my comments that not only do you NOT think I am a stalker - several of you would do way more stalkerish things than I did by driving by the house on Tuesday. The whole search thing is making me crazy, so I've decided to give it a rest for a couple of days. Maybe this weekend I'll have Hallie help me make sense of all of the evidence. In the meantime, here's some random stuff rattling around in my brain.
I'm happy to report that I have now used all three of the fabulous new As-Seen-On-TV products that I received for Christmas. Since there was so much interest in whether they actually work or not, I will dedicate my weekend post to a review. I even took pictures of my initial attempt at the Pancake Puff Maker. I will spill all the secrets that Billy Mays and Sham Wow Guy don't tell you on TV.
Yesterday, we had a storm that started out as snow, and ended as snow. Unfortunately, in the middle it was sleet and freezing rain, and the roads are horrendous. I'm lucky enough to live on a fairly main road, but even on my street, the little traffic there is - is crawling. This concerns me because I need to go to the store; although, to be completely candid, I'm sure we could survive here on canned and frozen goods for a couple of months or more. I just don't WANT any of that stuff. The cats are also dangerously low on food, and there is nothing more annoying in this world than a hungry cat. Except 3 hungry cats.
Am I the only one who gets up at 5:30, even though I don't have anywhere to be, just to make sure my 16 year old gets up and on the school bus? I got him a new alarm clock for Christmas, but I don't really trust him to hear it and do what he's supposed to do. Plus, I've noticed that when he first gets up, before he has time to put on all that teenage boy bravado, he's kinda warm and fuzzy to his mom. Don't tell anybody.
Maybe, after I get Alex out the door, I should go back to bed. Except I am always completely awake by that time. Maybe I'll look at all my paperwork again, and perhaps this time it will all make sense. Or I'll get my afghan and lay on the couch and watch movies. Or I'll go online and update my resume for the billionth time and find the perfect job. Or I'll make myself some Omelette Puffs (yeah, you heard me) for breakfast.
Gosh, all of a sudden the day is filled with possibilities.
