things that are bugging me lately

How come it got so hot so fast this week??
The desert grass and greenery are not grassy or green anymore.
As I type this, I am holding the phone to my ear waiting for a customer service rep. It has been 23 minutes now.
I have a delicious dinner cooking in the oven. It smells great. I don't know if anyone is going to be home to eat it with me tonight.
The U.S. Postal Service has a feature on their web site to look up zip codes. It has boxes to type in an address and it has a box for the zip code. Why?
A hub cap/tire cover thing on my back tire came off. It makes our car look trashy. I don't know where to get another one. And I don't feel like spending the time/effort to find one.
I have jury duty tomorrow.
Our TV broke. It is sitting on the floor of our living room. A smaller, older one is sitting in it's place. All of it's external control buttons are broken. It doesn't have the correct wiring to hook up to the DVD player/Tivo.
We have seven remote controls in our living room. I don't know why.
It has been 35 minutes.
I guess I don't really have a delicious dinner cooking. Just delicious chicken. I have no idea what to eat with it tonight. I hope there are some leftover vegetables in the fridge to warm up.
39 minutes on hold and I just got cut off.

OK, . . . . good things that are going on in my life that are exciting, but still causing me a little bit of stress:
Our stake is going on a pioneer trek. Dave and I are going. I'm excited. But there is a lot of work to do to prepare. I don't know how those pioneer women had time to pluck chickens, gather eggs and sew their dresses. I just have to get my eggs at the store and I can't find the time to get the sewing done.
Dave and I are going to Europe this summer!! Soon I will be very very excited. Right now we are trying to plan our trip and we're not very good at planning in unfamiliar territory.
I'm going to girl's camp in three weeks. I enjoy it, but I'm not totally prepared at this moment in time.
I've got to work on collections this week. I can usually pull some money into our business account when I do, it's just the least favorite part of my job.
Roxanne is buying a house. I will be glad when escrow closes. Right now there's just a lot of things to help her with. It's an adorable house and will be a good rental for college girls for years to come.

Good things going on that are not causing any stress at all:
My niece, Roni, is getting married this Saturday. We are all looking forward to spending the day with her. And I'm sure it's going to be an awesome party.
I am done with my early morning seminary calling. I can go to sleep at night with nothing on my mind for the next day.
I don't have another calling yet.
Melanie started a garden for a Young Women's project. We have fresh and delicious tomatoes every single day right now.
It's Tuesday night. I usually have the house to myself on Tuesday nights.
Everyone just got home and there are some vegetables that I am warming up.
All is well.

wow! There's a lot of randomness in your life but you sort of skipped over the Europe thing. Seriously...Europe!? Do tell!

We are celebrating our 25th anniversary. London, Netherlands, Germany, Austria. We're going to stay with Tom, our foreign exchange student from years ago, and Dave's niece is in Berlin on a research program so she'll be showing us around a bit too. The rest of the time, we'll probably be wondering around, lost.

I happy to give you some Europe planning pointers...
I have random things that are bugging me too. Like why the air conditioner in my car doesn't work all the time. And I keep worrying about how mucn it is going to cost me to fix when I figure out what it is.
And being so busy with work that I don't seem to get the rest of my life in much order.

Europe sounds exciting!

Wow! & on my 25th, I got to work & not even see my husband! I hoped for flowers at work, but nope, nothing! count your blessings! Yep, I seriously envy a lot of people right now! Unbelievable that Roxanne can buy a house now @ this point in her life!
