It’s that time of year again….track season. Numb Butt season as I so lovingly call it. Sitting on hard bleachers, cheering on my lovely child, I’m so not ready for that this year. It’s time though. I took Matt yesterday for his sports physical and track practice starts next week. Practice is every day after school until 5pm then his first meet is on March 31st. So, I guess I’ll be digging out my bleacher chair soon and preparing myself for another case of NB for a few months. I keep telling myself that at least I get to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine, but so far that isn’t helping much.

Ever have one of those days when no matter how much you eat, you just can’t seem to get full? Well, the past couple of days have been like that for me. No matter how big of a meal I eat, no matter how many between meal snacks I have, I just can’t seem to get rid of that hollow feeling in my gut. I have tried everything that I can think of from filling up on fiber-rich veggies to drinking gallons of water (maybe I’m thirsty?), but no luck. I eat and half an hour later my stomach is growling. Yes, actually growling. No it’s not “that time of the month” and no I am NOT pregnant so what else could it be? Other then being possessed by Eric Cartman (my favorite South Park character), I don’t know what else to think.

I haven’t been able to think of much to write since the beginning of the year so here is another meme, stolen from Crazy Lady. Hope you enjoy it.

1. When you looked at yourself in the mirror today, what was the first thing you thought? What is that spot above my eyebrow? How long has it been there? Man, I’m getting old. Oh wait, that was more then the first thought.

 2. How much cash do you have on you? None, although I had $10 before daughter took it for lunch money.

 3. What’s a word that rhymes with DOOR? Poor, which is what I am now that daughter took all my moolah.

 4. Favorite planet? Pluto even though it technically isn’t a planet anymore 😦

5. Who is the 4th person on your missed call list on your cell phone? Hubby

 6. What is your favorite ring tone on your phone? Second Chance by Shinedown Read the rest of this entry »

WARNING! RANT TO FOLLOW.

I’m sitting here waiting on FedEx to show up at my door, supposed to have been here no later then 3pm (it’s 3:15 now…yes, I’m impatient), with a package. I paid extra to have it shipped overnight because I really need it today. I’ve checked their tracking site and it says it is on the truck for delivery so I’m hoping that it will be here and not rescheduled for tomorrow. If it doesn’t show up today, I will not be using them as my shipping option anymore since this will make the second time that I’ve paid extra for something to get here quick and it hasn’t.

Update: No more. I will never use FedEx again! I didn’t get my package until TODAY…at 11:30!! I’m so pissed. I asked the driver why it wasn’t delivered yesterday and she said she didn’t know why. It was on her truck this morning when she left the shop.  No reason was given on the online tracking either.  UPS will be my choice from now on.  Thankfully I’ve never had a problem with them and hopefully I never will.
