Stuck in the '70s

It's official!

Woo hoo! Everything's official today. I'm single. The guys will be beating down the door now. ;) Back to a normal life as we know it.

I started a new job at The Home Depot a few weeks ago. I'm a kitchen specialist. Should be fun. It's a brand new store that opens July 14. (Same night as the Donny Osmond concert. Don't ya know that when they offered me the job, I told them I'd have to miss grand opening night because I have front row, center stage tickets!) I'm lovin' it so far, and by golly, there are so many projects around the house that I'm looking forward to ... starting with the crappy ass kitchen!!! I'm shooting for that Brady look, you know -- with the orange cabinets and avacado green countertops. Or was it green cabinets and orange countertops? Oh well. (and shag rug in every room -- Home Depot sells it, you know!)

My youngest son and I were in a wreck last week while taking a brief vacation in Branson, Mo. We were on our way home, stopped at a stop light that was just changing to green. Before I could even get my foot on the gas pedal, a garbage truck (of all flippin' things!) came barreling up behind us and smashed into the rear end of my minivan!! Both of us screamed (although I'm proud to say my boy didn't scream like a little girl -- it was a very manly scream). Cops came. The ambulance came. We went to the hospital. The van was totaled. We're OK, aside from some bruises and neck pain. Well, at least I'm gonna get a "new" van out of it. Too bad I can't get that '65 Mustang convertible I really wanted.

Got a whole lot going on with the Web site. Check the contests page for some summer fun!

I'll write more this weekend to update you all.
