I was just discussing with Jennifer this morning on the cellpiece how I am not a list maker.  We were talking about how some people cross of the days on their calender and some people don’t.  Let’s get real here, I don’t even really have a calender.  I definitely don’t cross the days off.  My desktop calender (those big huge suckers that are basically placemats for your desk) is still on September.  Great.  She said that of course I don’t mark off days in my calender, I don’t make lists either.  I told her I make lists in my head.  She said she was sure my head was a bad place to keep lists.  Details. 

Then Meg asked us this morning to make a list.   So I’m going to make a list of things I’m happy about. 

1.  I’m happy that our Deal or No Deal costumes turned out so spectacularly.  Except for the fact that a lot of people don’t know about the show Deal or No Deal.  I guess they live under a rock.  Hah.  Here we are looking cute.  Dond1 Dond3 The red glitter from our sweet dresses we got from Daffy’s (Clothing Bargains for Millionaires)  was all over everything. 

2.  I am getting a dog this weekend.  A wheaten terrier.  I’m really excited.  I know it is going to be a lot of work, but I really want a dog.  I want to take care of a dog and I’m excited about the structure.  Wheatens don’t shed, they don’t get too big, while still being big enough to run with me.  I really want a dog I can run with.  I wanted a lab, and my parents were dead against a lab.  I do see their point, I’m not sure I can deal with a dog that weighs 80 pounds.  Give me advice about my dog.  I know wheatens need a lot of attention.  So do I.  My job is very flexible right now.  Here is the picture the breeder sent me – Dscf0650

They get lighter as they get older. 

3.  In about half an hour I’m getting sworn in as an attorney.  It is really exciting.  I’m still so happy I passed the bar.  It is almost like graduating from law school all over again, just better.  The best part (besides the fact that I don’t have to take it again) is that everyone else is so happy for me.  I really appreciate the fact that people care. It means a lot. 

4.  I downloaded the new John Mayer Cd.  I’ve never had one of his cds before.  I like it.  Gravity is my favorite. 

5.  Last night I got to watch, on TiVo, four of my favorite tv shows.  Boston Legal, House, Bones, and Lost.  It was a big night.  I got a flu shot yesterday so I didn’t go run, but hopefully Elizabeth and I can go run tonight.  This whole time change thing really sucks.  A lot.  Especially since I still can’t get out of bed in the morning. 

6.  The WEATHER.  It has been so beautiful here.  I need to be outside more.  A lot more. 

7.  I am not going out of town for a while.  Except to go pick up my puppy.  I can’t tell you how happy that makes me.  I have had a great couple of months of travel, but I’m plum worn out.  I need a break.  Pretend like I live here.  In my cute house. 

Okay, that seems like a good number.  I’m off to become a real live attorney.  Kisses.
