These are the things I have learned and affirmed about myself in the past 24-hours. This in not an all-inclusive list.

1. I packed 3 pairs of ballet flats and no tennis shoes. Walking in the morning? Chacos flip-flops are supportive, right? (I bought those $50 thongs [yes, I am one of those people who call them thongs and not the kind that go up your butt] at 75% off. BAM!! Bargain shopper extraordinaire right here!)

2. I want a dog. A cute, cuddly, take her on walks in the morning dog. Kind of like this cutie patootie:
(This little black Schnauzer is Ebony, my grandma's dog.)

3. If I go to bed by 10:30 getting up at 7:00am is no big deal.

4. My blackberry storm is of the devil. It died on Saturday and refused to begin charging until 6:22am on Sunday. It was at 6:22am that I heard my alarm and realized this. I was supposed to be up at 5:30 to leave the house by 6:00am. Blast.

5. I love friends. I got to see Emily from Arizona when I went through Dayton, OH since she was in town for a wedding. Even 20 minutes was totally worth it. OK? So, next time you're on a layover at the Raleigh-Durham airport you give me a call! Got it!?! I want my stinkin' 20 minutes. (I don't know anyone who has ever had a layover at RDU.)

6. I love coffee. We met at a place called the Boston Stoker. Delicious, delicious perfectly prepared latte. If you're in the Dayton area, check it out. Do I have friends in the Dayton area?

7. I love FALL!!!! OH MY GOODNESS. Yesterday was the MOST BEAUTIFUL DRIVE EVER. Fall has exploded on the Blue Ridge Mountains across North Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia. I crown the winning state: Virginia though. Stunning. Orange, red, yellow, brown and green in their purest forms.

8. I was in a mad rush because of leaving my house an hour late, so I couldn't stop and take pictures of #7.

9. The soundtrack to Mama Mia makes me happy.

10. This song is my inspiration song for the next week and a half:
(Please ignore the pictures.)

11. I'm a maniac when I drive. Literally, I stopped for gas 3 times and peed 1. Oh and I did pick up some breakfast which is the only meal I'm willing to eat from a fast food restaurant. I convinced myself to get egg and cheese on an English muffin. Then I pulled up to Hardee's and they didn't have it, so I got a biscuit. Biscuits are full of buttery-fatty-high caloric delicious artery-clogging-ness. I devoured it. And a raisin biscuit thing covered in icing. Will you forgive me?

12. I think I only ate carbohydrates yesterday. Oh and an apple.

13. It's my parent's 30th anniversary!! YAY!! Happy anniversary!
It's now my goal in life to convince them that they have to do something to celebrate it. My dad thinks going to a country buffet in Canton-Galva, KS counts. My mom keeps trying out other excuses. I am not convinced and by next summer they will do something!!! I am making this statement. I am convinced.

14. I love tv. I know, I don't have tv, but really, I want it. I could watch Food Network all day, every day. And there's a new season of The Next Iron Chef. One episode and I decided who my crush on the show would be. (Last season was Seamus Mullen, in case you forgot this unimportant fact.) This season: Brian Caswell. I am ridiculous.

15. I'm off to the hospital, then starting with the kids schedules this afternoon!
