A trip down memory lane.

I just downloaded the latest pictures from my camera, and of course, I had to scroll through some of my older ones. I didn't make it through all 4,200 but I did find some goodies. Here is proof a girl in her thirties and a girl in her teens can be entertained for hours with a tandem bike, a trampoline and a camera.

I miss you Bergies!!

5 Confessions for Friday

Another list. I love lists.
I swiped this from Tiffanys blog. Thanks for the idea.

1. I buy things in 2's and 8's. For example, when I am shopping and I see a decent price on something we frequently use, I will buy 2 or 8. I have no idea why. Perhaps it's because if I purchase only 1 of the item, I think it will be lonely and resent me. If I buy 8 then they can all have a party in the pantry. Is it strange that I think inanimate objects have feelings and like to party?

2. Shortly into the worst job I've ever had in my life, I discovered the position wasn't suppose to last as long as it actually did. Without divulging too much, my manager intended to restructure the department BEFORE he hired me. I was only suppose to act as a temporary fill until he got the go ahead from the "higher ups" and I would have been jobless. When it didn't happen, he left the company shortly thereafter. A part of me has always wanted to ask him why he wasn't honest with me and another part of me doesn't even want to go there. Then the part of me that I actually listen to wonders why O likes to drink Italian dressing.

3. I don't think all babies are cute. Before you gasp in shock, check yourself, I bet you've had similar thoughts. Seriously. I even think some kids are really strange looking. (Don't worry, it's not YOUR baby/kid I'm talking about, it's someone else's.)

4. I REALLY want to go on tour with a band as their massage therapist. I love music, I love travel and I love massage, why not combine them?

5. I'm a natural redhead.

Have you ever grabbed a random mix CD from your collection, pop it in the player and instantly lose all recollection of its origin?

That happened to me today. I thought, "Who gave this to me? Did they like me? Were they trying to torture me?" And then I thought, "Did I actually used to like this?"
