Random Thoughts and Rants

My daughter has been home 2 and half days and my son 2 days. So far we’ve all survived. Knock on wood!

Tonight we decided for a treat to go to Chicago Pizza Dough**. (They have really good coupons online if you have one near you.) Their pizza is awesome. We got the "Spectacular" which is like everything and the kitchen sink (sausage, pepperoni, black olives, mushrooms, green pepper, red onions.)

There was a lull in conversation during salad, Anastasia looks at me and says “Quick, hold my hand, close your eyes….wow, that was almost like a date! It was as if we were here by ourselves!” I told her to promise not to do that while I was driving on the ride home. LOL!

I dropped Anastasia off at her Mom’s for her Friday night caregiver gig and headed home. Before we drop her off she asks the kids to check the dirty laundry for her driver’s license. I get into the living room last to hear my son arguing on the phone:
Son: It’s expired.
Son: Yes it IS.
Son: It IS too.
Me: What’s going on?
Son: I found Anastasia’s license and it’s expired.
Me: Give it to me.
Me: Give me the phone.
Me: It IS expired.
Anastasia: It can’t be.
Me: It IS.
Anastasia: !@#$%
Me: Let me check online for their hours for Saturday…They’re closed Saturday AND Monday for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
Anastasia: !@#$%
Me: You’ll have to go Tuesday.
How do state employees rate 2 days off for a holiday? And the most important question, why didn't they mail her a form? I check incoming mail religiously and always point out important mail. No notice ever came.

How does someone forget to renew their driver’s license? Well, I shouldn’t say that, I did forget once in the 80’s. But in my defense it WAS the 80’s. I worked for a company that I could get reimbursed for all my bar expenses. Nuff said.

Blagojevich’s Lawyer Quits Impeachment Trial. Who the heck is going to represent him now for the Senate impeachment trial? The trial starts January 26th, who on earth would take on a case of that magnitude with no preparation time?

I’m hoping tomorrow I can get the kids to go to the movies. We just got our Five Buck cards for our local theatre and there are actually quite a few good movies on the list. Heck, for $5 I might even go see a movie, but I’m either going with Anastasia or ALONE. No Kids! They are not allowed to go to whatever movie I pick!

If you’re Chesley B. Sullenberger III, what do you do now?
Do you get right back to flying because, 'heck I just did my job and I’m going to do my job tomorrow and the next day and the day after that'.
Take a little vacation in Bermuda to calm your nerves.
Retire from your job as a commercial airline pilot and devote all your time to your private venture, Safety Reliability Methods.
I don't know how much longer I can stand ABC Family Channel and Disney Channel. How many times can someone watch "Freaky Friday"? Don't get me wrong, I love me some Jamie Lee Curtis, but enough is enough.

...Please send José Cuervo!

...If you really like me, send Patrón

(**Disclosure: This is not a paid post, I don't do those, I just love their pizza.)

You would think people would be used to Illinois Governors going to jail. I think 4 of the last eight have been arrested. I am just disappointed that he didn't try to sell Obama's spot for more money. He could have used to money to fix our budget.
