Mowin' the yard

This may not be anything to most people but it is to me. I have been married before and the purchases of yard equipment fell into the 'His' category. Well, those purchases all fell into the 'His' category in the divorce. So, since then I have just paid someone to take care of the yard. And now, I got tired of doing that. Being the strong independant women I am, I decided it was time to buy my on lawn mower.

I went mower shopping this weekend and purchased my very own. It is a nice machine, I am proud of it and myself.

I feel that I am getting older and more mature when I am excited by the purchase of a lawn mower (and the warranty it has).

That's really not such a bad thing.

Mo' Money

Got my first paycheck with my raise on it today!!! Wow! It's amazing what a difference it makes.

I am going to Houston this evening to go to dinner and will stay in a hotel overnight. It's so hard to get a peaceful meal when you work in the public eye. I have to go out of town so I don't have to make the rounds...because if you don't, you're being a snob and think you are too good to talk to other people.

Anyway, I just need a break. Work is really starting to stress me.

Here's a pic of the icicles on my house from last week (something we never get here). I hear we will be getting temps in the teens next week. What the...?
