I should have paid more attention in weather class...

Maybe it's not so much that I don't understand weather as that I don't understand Colorado weather. It's so crazy. One day its 70 degrees, the next it's snowing. No wonder I got a cold the day before my birhtday. Nothing like having the sniffles when you're trying to head out to the bars to celebrate. And the best part was that I got better the day after. Trying to rain on my parade...

New additions to my fam!

Originally uploaded by pickyv83.

I just wanted to say how excited I am for my brother who just took in two stray, adorable, hyper kittens named Rupert and Starbuck!! I'm sure he will be busy running after those two...As much as I want Kacee to have a playmate during the day when I'm at work, I am fighting the old cat lady doom that may very well be my future!


I admit, I do sometimes think that animals dressed up in costumes is cute. Everyone likes a little bling, why not let your pet enjoy it, too? But I think it's maybe going a little too far with iPod costumes. I'm not kidding. There are actual websites out there that make it possible for your iPod to enter the costume contest right along with you! Who came up with this idea?

I can not remember a time when I was completly content with how my life was. I am always looking for something new. Something to do, something to entertain me, something to make me feel challanged. It's like I'm never completly whole. I am constantly searching for the thing that will complete me. Is there such a thing? Is there a point where you stop feeling the need or desire to change yourself? Is life really just this chase and thats what keeps us motivated to wake up every morning? I'm not sure if other people feel this way or not. Maybe I am just a little (or a lot) screwed up. Maybe I am just not happy with myself and until I am I will keep looking and reaching for the next big thing. Or maybe I am just a restless person who needs constant stimulation. Maybe I get bored to easily. How much of this feeling is me, and how much of it is my generation? I've heard that my generation will switch jobs and careers close to 7 times in their life. Our grandparents did the same job most of their adult lives. What has changed to cause this? I don't do well with options. I can't make a decision to save my life. All of my big decisions that I have made so far in life have been made on accident. I think it's because I am afraid to lock myself into something and not be able to go back. But that's all part of life, too. It's crazy to think that all the decisions we make have an impact on our lives. I mean, think about it. Even the decision of what to have for dinner, which seems to simple and pointless could be the one decision that results in you getting food poisoning or an allergic reaction. Life itself is a challange. I think maybe I will just hide in my bed under the covers...KIDDING! Bring it!

Bad News Bears

So, I definatly have a case of the Mondays. I'm sitting in my office today gettin er done, and find out that my PARKED car has been hit by a runaway truck. Turns out the concrete workers outside have a truck with a faulty clutch or something and the truck rolls down the hill, over the median with all the flowers in it and then smashes into my car. I have really bad luck with cars. This is the second one I have owned and it is the second one to be hit. No more black cars for this chick. 3 strikes and you're out, and I don't want to go for number 3.
