Midlife Crisis Approaching...Oh no! It's Here!
This is one of the worst times of the year for me. Not only is it deep winter, but it is my birthday next week as well and the closer I get to 40, the moodier I get. Of course, I will only be 38 next week, but still...that's pretty danged close to 40.

I don't want to get older.

Do you know that this summer I will be having my 20th high school reunion? Yep, I have 4 months or so to lose 100 lbs. How in the heck am I going to do that? There's no way. Frankly, I am beginning not to even care. If they don't like the person I have become, then blankety blank on them.

I think I am having my mid-life crisis early.

The other day I saw the new Chevy Camaro concept car. I want one so badly, but they won't come out probably until 2009. That gives me three years to save up. ;) Can you see me toolin' around in this baby? Some Def Leppard Pyromania pounding out of the speakers as I cruise to the school for my lunch mom duties or to the Jewel to buy groceries? I'm thinking a bright red. Yeah, that's the ticket.

When I was a teen, I wanted a Firebird, Camaro or Trans Am so desperately! For one week, I was allowed to drive a copper 80-something Firebird while our truck was in the shop. That was such a cool week - driving that car to band camp every day. LOL And then it was gone.

Of course, if I get a job to finance this dream, I would have to come up with day care money too for the summer as I wouldn't be home to watch the kids. For those of you who don't know how much day care can cost, think basically all of the paycheck I would recieve.

So, for now, I can dream. Just like I dream about moving back home to Alabama, but it's never gonna happen.

"I believe that no matter what you do, no matter how hard you try, you can not baptize cats." - Larry the Cable Guy

A Tennessee man and an Alabama man were both fighting in a war and were captured by the enemy.
"Before we put you to death," said the enemy, "do you have any last requests?"
"Yes," said the Alabaman. "Could you play 'Yeah, Alabama' before you shoot me?"
"Sure," said the enemy. "How about you, Tennessean?"
"Could you shoot me before you play 'Yeah, Alabama?'"
