Next Steps...

So, America says that the proper way to do things as an American is to graduate high school, hopefully go to college, fall in love, get married, buy a house, have babies. Well, check, check, check, check and check. The last one, not so simple. Cesar and I have known each other for 12 1/2 years, been married for 7 1/2 years, I have been in my job for over 8 years, in our house for 4. We've talked about kids on and off over the years and were ready to start trying for a baby when Cesar got laid off last year. Not very responsible to have a child when one person isn't working. So, now that he is working again, we are back in negotiations, so to speak. The thing is we both love kids and if we got pregnant we would be thrilled. Its hard though to sort out if it is us really wanting a child or if it is societal pressure - the required next step. In all honesty, I have been ready for the next phase of my life for a while now, but how do I know if that next phase is a baby or if it is something else? It's never easy, is it?

Being Late...

I hate being late. It is very stressful for me. Although, in my job, I have learned to be late as the field I work in is consistently late and for me to show up on time means I am 10-15 minutes early.

Currently, I am 1 hour and 18 minutes late to a wedding. Sigh. Well, a wedding reception. Cesar's new job is anything but predictable and so we are late to the party because he's not home yet. The new job is an adjustment for both of us. For 6 months, Cesar was ALWAYS ALWAYS home. And now, we never see each other. We have one day off in common and that's about it. Hopefully as he gets the feel for it and learns it better, his days won't be so long. He is still loving it though, and that is what matters.

1 hour and 20 minutes late... I'm sorry, Molly. :(

You are the good Samaritan of the lolcat world. Protecting others from danger by shouting observations and guidance in cases of imminent threat, you believe in the well-being of everyone.

Cesar is jealous because this is his LOL cat:

Lolzergs have nothing on you. You are swift and ruthless, cutting down whatever and whomever necessary in order to obtain the foodz. As one of the first lolcat known to man, your ancient skills in location-declaration and object-verbing have been passed down several generations, keeping the spirit of felinity alive.

31...

You know, I am beginning to realize that everything "they" say is true. I have always heard that the 30s were good for women - that's when you finally figure out who you are and what you want, even though you think you figured it out in your late 20s. The 30s brings along an air of self-confidence and independence. I wish I had listened and processed all "they" had to say, instead of just letting it go in one ear and out the other.

Viva la 30s!!!

Finally, at long last...

Finally, it has arrived. We filmed it with our Pentax Optio and I edited it with VideoShow Expressions.

Please note, no animals were harmed in the making of this video. The ScatMat delivers a static pulse, like when you drag your feet on the floor and zap your sister or husband. :) And my couches have less fur on them...

I can not resist...

this made me giggle.
