Okay, this is crazy. Months ago when I crankily posted about one of my favorite books being turned into a movie I never thought it would bring so many visitors to my blog. Oh fine, it's not my witty banter that's bringing them all. It's the photo of Jeffery Dean Morgan. Today I had 323 hits. Amazing. I can't wait for his movie with Uma Thurman, The Accidental Husband, to come out this summer. Witness his hotness once again:

Blogging Blues

I feel kind of blah about blogging these days. It's going around. Maybe it's the weather, maybe it's because work has been a little bit nuts or maybe it's because I haven't been creative in quite sometime. Hopefully I'll snap out of it soon.


Quiz Time!

I took Animal Planet's dog breed selector quiz for fun this morning, just to see what results I would get. Thankfully, the miniatue Dachsund was in the top 8 breeds! Lulu might have been sad if she didn't rank high.


If you had told me a year ago that I would not be dreading Valentine's day 2008 I probably would have laughed in your face. But the last 6 months have been the best in a very very long time.

The boyfriend just sent these to me at my office. He's such a sweetie.



Happy family

Today my cousin and her husband threw a "happy retirement" party for my dad. Kristin and El Hombre made the drive down for it. Don't we look adorable.



It's time to vote. Texas is redesigning its license plate. Go here to vote for your favorite.

I used to have school plates, like this one, on my Beetle, but decided not to get them when I got my new car last May. Sometimes I miss them.



So I finished my taxes and filed them online tonight. My refund should arrive and be electronically deposited into my account in 9-15 days. Sweet. Too bad it's all going to American Express to pay off credit card debt.

Now I get the joy that is amending my 2005 and 2006 taxes because I found some deductions that I didn't know about at the time. Unfortunately, there is not a handy, user-friendly, free online form that will walk me through it. No, I have to fill that form out by hand. Oh math! My arch nemisis! Pray for me.

Valentine's Day is coming

Very cute card I found at Rock Scissor Paper. If Lulu could sent out Valentine's cards she might send this one.

There's also a whole bunch of doxie stationary. Super cute.
