Tuesday, July 29 -- A very good day

Today was an excellent day. Here's why:
  • I woke up in my comfy bed surrounded my boys. I'm so lucky to be surrounded by my family that love me. So nice and comforting.
  • I indulged myself with a Caribou this morning.
  • Then I bought gas and it was only $3.54 per gallon.
  • I got a couple of compliments on my new hair coloring (I am sure I'll have pics soon enough.)
  • Mary, Katie and Anthony are one their way to Minnesota!!!! Hooray!
  • Stevie got to feel an earthquake (thankfully, she's all right...and the earthquake that I felt in Washington in 2001 was bigger...lol. I'm so competitive.)
  • Found out the my friend Michelle got the weekend off work for the weekend by her birthday so we definitely get to go to her cabin.
  • My team at work got to enjoy a nice lunch at the Cheesecake Factory.
  • But what I am truly so excited about is that I accepted a new job today! I don't want to indulge too much, because my blog is public. But I am very excited for a new opportunity and I now get to check another item done on my 101 in 1,001 list. If you want to know more, send me an email!
  • Update --- And Dave captured the giant bull snake that lurked around the neighborhood.Yes, today was a very extraordinary day. Hooray! Hooray!


  1. What a great day!! Anyone of those things would have made for a pretty good day all on its own- no wonder you ended it with an extraordinary day!!

  2. Um, did you say giant snake? Yup, that settles it. I'm perfectly fine with staying in NC.


    But I'll miss you guys!!

  3. Aren't there snakes in NC?!

    Yay Dave!

  4. Yeah, the snake was 3-4 feet long...hard to tell because it slithers around.

    I saw one before and Dave didn't believe me when I stretched out my arms and said it was 'this big.'

    But now he knows I wasn't exagerating. lol.

  5. That's not a big snake! You all are making it out to be the first wild anaconda in MN (or a Burmese Python). 30+ feet and several hundred pounds- That's a big snake!

    Watch out, Garek might want it as a pet. That way Sammy would have a friend.

  6. Matt -- I don't live in some Burmese jungle. Snakes are okay when they are behind glass walls (i.e. at the zoo). But that is definitely the biggest snake I saw in nature...so it was scary! Well, it was the second time I saw a giant snake in the neighborhood so they could have been brothers. And if that is the case, Garek is more than welcome to come over to my neighborhood and hunt for snakes to take home.


What are your thoughts? I'd love to hear.
