Back To Normal...

The parties are over and the guests have gone home.
The Christmas tree has been dismantled and put away.
The cookies, pies, brownies, and other goodies have all been eaten. 
The Charlie Brown TV specials have been shelved for another year.
The gift cards have been redeemed and most of the Christmas money has been spent.

The post-holiday blues have set in.

Kiss Tonight!

We don't go to concerts very often, but when I saw that Kiss was coming to Glendale, I knew I wanted to go.  I even bought the tickets when they went on sale back in October.

The show is tonight.  I'm really looking forward to it.

Marketing Gimmick?

I think yes.

Sunday Dishes: Apricot Weekend

Yesterday, we went shopping at the antiques district in downtown Glendale.  I didn't find anything there, but on the way home we stopped at Goodwill.  There, I found a Fiesta large oval platter in Apricot.  For $3, it came home with me.

Then today, I found more Apricot at the Brass Armadillo--a dinner plate, salad plate, and a fruit bowl.  While the bargains weren't as great, I bought these items for less than I could find them on eBay...even before shipping.

I Am Here

Here's a screen capture of our house as it appears on Google Maps.  It's obvious that this pic was taken in the afternoon based on the location of the shadows.  Also, the garage is open (forever immortalizing the car, lawn mower, paint cans, and other useless crap on the Internet), which means the boys had just gotten home from school.  Furthermore, recycling can on the curb tells me that it was a Thursday.

I guess I'm glad this picture was taken before the frisbee got stuck on the roof above the garage.

Six Digits

Our Dodge reached 100,000 miles today.  I wasn't able to get a picture of the actual rollover since Q was driving it at the time and he has better things to do than care what the odometer says.  Anyway, that's more my thing.

We've never owned a car this long.  I just hope the car doesn't crap out on us before I finish school and start working.
