1. My son is turning 5 next month and I swear, he has become 25% more enjoyable to hang out with in the last month, something just happened over night. He was fun before, but some kind of “not a little kid anymore” switch flipped in his brain I guess.
2. Kind of makes me feel old that he won’t be in preschool much longer. :(
3. I have about 10 mini cupcakes left from St. Patty’s Day… chocolate cupcakes with Bailey’s in the batter and in the icing.
4. Wish I had one now.
5. Also wish I could go to the gym right now, have had way too much coffee today.

1. Always a good day when you get to meet another cyburbian.
2. So much slippery slush in the parking lots today, that I came close to face planting twice.
3. I've been away so long from cyburbia that I just realized I don't know how to private message anyone, well unless I'm responding to a message someone sent me and I get a pop-up window. That makes me a little sad.
4. Thinking about going to see a show at Lincoln Hall when I'm in Chicago, so I've been looking for info on the venue (and failing). Learned a lot about a dead climber from Australia though.
5. Someone mentioned Chet in the another thread, and that made me miss him so I googled 'where in the world is bturk'. Didn't LOL, but definitely LQTM.

2. The wind blew very hard last evening
3. Kiddie soccer practice was very cold

1. It's entirely possible I may have over-committed myself. There's not enough of me to go around to adequately contend with the obligations of work, radio theater production, domestic responsibilities, and children's activities.:-s
2. It was charming at first to experience folks sucking up to me at auditions so they could get roles, but the novelty has long since worn off and it's gotten quite tiresome
3. I can't believe Easter is this weekend
4. Must be going on close to a month of being 'between books'. I can find neither the time nor motivation to get into any book right now.
5. I had a stout last night called 'Moo Juice'. The name alone was enough to entice me to try it

1. So much to do this week, can't forget no work on Friday or I'll be working on Friday from home!
2. Might I see Planit at 4.5 free CM credits on April 10?
3. I wish we had Monday off after Easter instead of Friday, makes travel difficult with a Sunday holiday, guess I'll be staying here :(
4. My duties at work or sort of in limbo because of all this crappy state legislation affecting Planning in NC. I'm hitting my 5 years this summer...need to start thinking of my next move.
5. A big project I have working on is starting to finish up, love that feeling when I'll stop getting call from that development group!

1. Smoke & Fire inspection passed on the new house I'm nearly finished building.
2. Waiting for the buyer's inspector at 1pm. This clown tried to schedule Friday at 6pm. Who does that?
3. Waiting to figure out if we will be having Easter at home or making the trek to MA since my future father-in-law is supposed to be here sometime in the next 10 days.
4. Flights booked to Portland!
5. My boss didn't tell the ED she was going to Atlanta for 3 days or he didn't pay attention. He was all atwitter trying to locate her today.

2. Girl started track at the Jr. High. Running shoes, fees, sweats and "cute" shorts.
3. Easter dresses for four girls. Oh yeah, shoes.
4. Easter shirts for two boys.
5. I think I may have a "debit card wrist injury". Except it makes me more nauseous than achy. :)

1. The trouble with taking Monday off is that it makes for a long Tuesday
2. Knowing that tomorrow is mid-week makes it o.k.
3. Knowing that Thursday will be my Friday makes it even better.
4. Good Friday is really good when you have the day off.
5. I think my Cyburbia [STRIKEOUT]work[/STRIKEOUT] slack may be done here.

1. There is nothing more exciting than watching the Blackhawks score a goal...live right in front of you! Like last night!
2. There is also nothing more defeating than the Blackhawks losing the game in the last two minutes. Like last night.
3. Steven Tyler turned 65 today. Gosh, I remember when he was 45 and was considered old then!...and people thought 1993's Get a Grip would be Aerosmith's last album.
4. It's so refreshing to get a haircut.
5. The local Walmart was actually not too busy this evening. I was must have been smart by waiting until Tuesday (vs. Monday) or waiting until 7 to shop.

3. I don't really have anything to look forward to doing this evening
4. Ever notice how some people look 'youthful' even when they're seniors - like Sally Field?

5. It's long been a dream of mine to swing one of those wrecking balls at an old building

1) The day after a Commission meeting always seem slower/calmer than any other day.
2) Trying to get some landscape work estimates - and it seems like business must be good for them!
3) Easter brought much chocolate, and I forgot to bring the extras to work to share.
4) It's 10:00am and I want to go home already.
5) Elderly dogs cause much worry, and both my dogs are old.

James Bond drove a Sunbeam Alpine in Dr. No. He also "napped" with Ursula Andress. Now that's a sunbeam.
Leave it to ofos to take something as innocent as a nap in a sunbeam and turn it into something dirty. ;)

1. Today is the boss's final day at work.
2. The scrambling to establish positions has begun.
3. I'd love to ride in the giant snowplow while someone is pushing snow.
4. If dandy were traveling with me, she could nap in the sunbeam that shines through the passenger window.
5. I really enjoy traveling by myself.

Totally! *inserts sunbeam smilie*
You would have had a sweeping view of the Susquehanna River. It's windy, so the river had waves from the west bank to the east. I never see waves like that on the Monongahela or the Allegheny.

1. Despite not caring who won last night's game - it was actually a good game
2. It's a good friends b-day today. I called her this morning (8:00 am) to wish her a Happy Birthday and woke her up. She was taking the day off - I feel so bad now.
3. 81 is the projected high today - going to go for a nice walk on the rail trail
4. Contractors estimate to fix the garage door was $300. My DYI fix actually cost $12 in parts and about 2 hours of time (and 3 cuss words during the project)
5. b_b still hasn't told me where she's taking me for lunch

1) Tonight is the first of three night meetings this week.
2) I came in late because of the night meeting.
3) Made my own pineapple-blueberry juice this morning. Yum!
4) My boss can't make up her mind - send plans for review in electronic form, or paper copies? She's gone back and forth for two months!
5) The puppy picture on my calendar keeps looking at me with a little face that says "Take me home!"

1. The sun is at long last shining today, but sadly the news in Boston has effectively ended my inner sunshine today
2. Insanely busy this week. So was last week
3. Busy I said, but not particularly productive (a bad combo if ever there was)
4. When was the last time you went to a candy store - I mean a store that sells exclusively candy?
5. I STILL haven't put up the greenhouse. The weather and a million other things have conspired against me, but I am at least partly to blame (I had a couple hour window on Sunday that I spent playing with my son instead....so we get started a few weeks later than I planned)

1. At this morning's Commission meeting a Head Start class came for a proclamation of the "Week of the Young Child." It is wonderful how a bunch of young kids make all the grown-ups smile.
2. I like children. Adults I can take or leave, but children make the world a better place to live in.
3. Today a car alarm caused concern, rather than annoyance and apathy.
4. The guy who runs the cafe in the basement of the office building is calling it quits next month. I will miss his food and company.
5. My son made the A honor roll this quarter. He always makes the honor roll, but usually with one B. I had to make good on the promise to take him to the best restaurant in town. It was expensive, but worth it.

2. I got effectively nothing accomplished yesterday afternoon. And I am okay with that.
3. It is amazing how many phones numbers I call in a day.
4. I get tired of fighting the good fight some days.
5. I don't know if the grass is greener, but I might want to find out.

1. The village idot spoke again, this time the comp. plan is racist because it splits household income by racial groups
2. Naturally my comp. plan demographics come from the census, so the census is racist
3. The cold weather needs to stop. I want spring!
4. Today I might practice some tennis with the 6 year old
5. I'll say a few extra prayers for Boston again.

1. I haven't found myself particularly moved by the events in Boston.
2. The massive media coverage is exactly what the asshole(s) want.
3. $760 in vehicle repairs today.
4. Spring temperatures have arrived.
5. Overall, I'm actually feeling good today, which is contrary to #1 and #3.
