You know it's 2006 when...

1. You accidentally enter your password on the microwave.

2. You haven't played solitaire with real cards in years.

3. You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of 3.

4. You e-mail the person who works at the desk next to you.

5. Your reason for not staying in touch with friends and family is that they don't have e-mail addresses.

6. You pull up in your own driveway and use your cell phone to see if anyone is home to help you carry in the groceries. (well, duh!)

7. Every commercial on television has a web site at the bottom of the screen.

8. Leaving the house without your cell phone, which you didn't have the first 20 or 30 (or 60) years of your life, is now a cause for panic and you turn around to go and get it.

10. You get up in the morning and go on-line before getting your coffee.

11. You start tilting your head sideways to smile. : )

12. You're reading this and nodding and laughing.

13. Even worse, you know exactly to whom you are going to forward this message.

14. You are too busy to notice there was no #9 on this list.

15. You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn't a #9 on this list.

AND NOW U R LAUGHING at yourself.

Go on, send this to your friends know you want to!

(Thank you, son, for the funny-- this might be the first forward I actually forward!)

Monday ramblings...

Hi - I am full of random thoughts today... Happy Martin Luther King Day!

"I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal." I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slaveowners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood. I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a desert state, sweltering with the heat of injustice and oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice. I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I have a dream today."
- Martin Luther King ________________________

I need to do 7 loads of laundry. Did I not do ANY last week?!

Since I have the day off and am getting paid for it, definately have to scrap today!

Received my new Franklin Collages planner pages last week, and they are in my planner fresh and clean and empty - how organized that makes me feel in one fell swoop! So, I can plan *nothing* so I stay organized! Haha!

Husband, Dad and Brother are loading up and shipping out lambs today - wahoo! As Eric says, the only good sheep is sheep we don't have! So, it will be a good day for him.

My seventh grade daughter Elizabeth's first basketball game is tomorrow. Always fun to see how these "first-timers" play and improve over the season. (I speak from the experience of volleyball this fall.) Yes, Elizabeth plays and will play any and every sport open to her. And so far, she's done really well at all of them she's tried--> also swimming,soccer, & track. Yayhoo college scholarships! She and eighth grade son Luke are straight A students, too.(and he's a soccer and track star) They have been such easy kids to raise! Two-year-old Mark? Firmly in the two year old status... ask me --next year?!

Toodles for now! Enjoy your clean fresh Monday! --Kristin
