i was browsing imdb.com just now and lo and behold, thought i saw kennon
on the main page!
but it was just at first glance and and then i saw it was not actually him...
the photo in question
why yes, life is crazy busy. i've been at bluecotton for 7 years now, shawnee is in nursing school, and we have 2 cats to keep up with!
i just noticed it's been over 3 months since i've posted. believe you me, i've started a few posts in those 3 months....but never could bring myself to finish them. do not worry pleonast, i have not forgotton you...
so what have i done with my life in the past few months? well, i had a surgery for an umbilical hernia (those make your innie an outtie...i now have an innie again:-) and the recovery from that was a lot smoother than for my surgery 4 years ago. granted, it's a lot smaller incision area too...that helps
i also turned the big 3-2 on my birthday earlier this month. do i feel any older? only in the mornings...
work is starting to slow down so that's a good thing to me. i work good under pressure but i don't like to do so all day every day. it's nice to just slow my roll from time to time and work at a reasonable pace.
shawnee and i have been busy in the yard this summer trying to get a few things done before she starts her summer class in july and i think we made some really good progress. and i got to go to lowes quite a few times and i just enjoy that more and more these days (-:
and for those of you who can't wait to get more samoas when girl scout cookie time comes back around, the keebler elves are here for you:
what is your favorite cover of a song? i'm a big fan of metallica's version of "turn the page"
florida driver's licenses should only be valid in the state of florida because those people cannot drive anywhere else! i saw an elderly gentleman from florida almost cause three wrecks this morning on my way to work.
and it's always impressive to see a semi do a u-turn on scottsville road...
2012 has shaped up to be a busy year so far. we were far busier at work for this time of year and shawnee has been in school.
speaking of shawnee being in school, she is doing GREAT in her classes! she's spending a lot of time studying (which is actually why i am on pleonast right now:-) but it's paying off and she's been making great grades and throwing off the curves! (-:
and where has wireless printing been my whole life? seriously...amazing...
i need to start carrying a pad of paper at work for when i think of something to write about on here. i used to do that at TRU all the time...now i just forget everything by the time i get home. or i'm just losing my memory.
this is one of my favorite dave barry columns of all time (-:
well winter finally decided to rear its ugly head. by this time last year we had already gone through several snowstorms. yesterday we just had a few non-sticking flurries. but it is all of 20 degrees outside! *insert serious sam

our holiday travels are over now. shawnee spent a week up in indy to help take care of her dad after his neck surgery (he's recovering quite well thus far) and then i went up there and picked her up and drove to kansas city to spend a few days at my parent's house. it was jam packed full of people! we maxed out at 26 people in the house, with 7 children under the age of 7! so if you wanted a nice, quiet place, it was not for you (-: lots of fun was had and it was good to see cousins holly and jamie again.
back home for a friend's 60th birthday party and the lost river new year's eve party (where i made it to the final four in the cornhole tournament and shawnee showed off her amazing kleenex skillz) and now i'm warming up my truck to go to work.
i think i'm fighting off a sinus infection because of the changing weather (it's supposed to be up to 60 again by friday...) so that's really annoying. nothing like coughing up green stuff to get your morning started off right...but i digress...
shawnee suggested we watch three star wars movies yesterday and hang out on the couch....yup, i love her (-:
something i was thinking about the other day:
knights in the olden days
knights in the modern days
i think we might be taking a step backwards as a human race...
but our new roof has passed several leak tests! so all is well in the casa de wells (-:
