Knoxville Zoo is massive.
I wonder what they do with the African animals during the winter
I took a vacation and I now need another one.
The Classifieds at work are back!
I cannot understand why some people take steal other people’s food from the fridge at work.
I took the bus to work one day last week (and met with a fierce bulldog on my way to the bus stop) and ran into someone’s compound, and he shouted at it and it ran away so fast…if only I could shout that loud.
Its amazing what popsicles can do to your kids.

Leadership Chattanooga

Today I attended the graduation of one of my supervisors. She was graduating from the 2009 Leadership Chattanooga class. Her group had a very neat project called
. This project provides clothing (uniform) for students at Orchard Knob Middle, but to get a piece of clothing, the students have to volunteer their time. They said that many students do not come to school because they do not have uniform and so this is a way of providing for them uniform.   I thought it was very neat.  The closets need uniforms and so they are taking donations.

Fun Monday!

Today’s Fun Monday is hosted by Mariposa.

Of Guilty Pleasures: Self Pampering Stories…

In the midst of the busyness of our lives we tend to get overwhelmed by it that we forget ourselves. Most of us are inclined to look out for others first, yet we deserve to look for ourselves as much or even more. I believe we do!
In fact we all need to learn to pamper ourselves and not just in times when we are stressed.
So for next week, let us share each other’s self pampering stories…may they be from little pleasures to guilty pleasures!
I am so sorry that I do not have self pampering stories, maybe after I read some others, I will start to do better in this area.  I got a gift certificate for a manicure and pedicure and I let it lapse. I feel good after I have gone for a run, does that count as self pampering?  It  just feels good to run, and think, and breathe in the fresh air.  My guilty pleasure is candy.  I eat more candy than I dare to admit.  I am sorry but my post is bland today…head over to Mariposa and get some great self pampering  ideas.


Facebook is really killing my blog but I keep on blogging.
I think I am addicted to candy – I need a detox.
My kids are growing up too fast.
I am beginning to think the 1st service works better for us on Sunday.
I need a vacation.
Kris Allen should win American Idol.
Waiting is hard.
I want a laptop so bad.
I repierced my ears and they are hurting.
