I've got my Miata back!! For those of you that don't know, I had a 1999 Mazda Miata that in a moment of insanity I traded in for a 2002 Volkswagen Jetta. I started to regret that decision about a week after I had done it. Finally, after almost 4 whole years Miata free, the time was right and I got a 2005 Miata yesterday!!

Even though we struck the deal on it last night, I had to wait until this afternoon to pick it up. It was stuck in the showroom. The dealership had to borrow ramps so that they could drive my beautiful new car down the stairs.

Anyway, I'm back driving my death trap and couldn't be happier.

Happy Accident: Realizing how much fun it is to drive with the top down on a beautiful day with the stereo blasting. It's one of those great to be alive moments.

Mrs. M

Mrs. M is coming down for a visit this weekend. Turtle just left to go pick her up at the train station. I can't wait to see her, she should finally be showing!!! Yup, Mrs. M is married AND pregnant.

I've been so excited about Mrs. M's pregnancy. I'm gonna be an auntie again, even if it is of the calabash variety. Extended families are so cool: the people you come to love and become an integral part of your being even though the same blood doesn't run through your veins. It's that whole soul connection thing.

Happy accident: Soul sisters


I just checked my emails and to my surprise I had 118 new messages. Sheesh, when did that happen?? It's only been a few days--okay maybe a week--since I checked my emails. To my further surprised only a fourth of the messages where spam. Holy cow, I guess if you're going to join the digital age, you better stick with it. No wonder I've been feeling so out of touch, I communicate more via email then the phone these days.

Happy Accident: Checking email and realizing how many cool and groovy friends I have!

The first step in recovery is admitting you have a problem. Okay, so I admit that I may have an itsy-bitsy problem. There satisfied??

Seriously, I've been putting in some LONG hours at the new job. I knew straightening some things out at the new gig was going to be a challenge, but I kinda underesitmated who FUBARed some of the problems would be. So, for the past three weeks I kept thinking that if I could just get on top of a "few" things everything else would quickly resolve itself. Last week Saturday the hard reality hit me that the clean-up process is going to take a tad bit longer than anticpated and I needed to regain some balance again. So, I've been working to get in a Zen state and work more normal hours and be okay with the time the process may take.

With that said, I'm actually having a ton of fun and am like I'll have pretty close the my ideal job when all the dust settles. So, the hard work is worth it to me because I feel a big payoff is in store.

Happy Accident To Celebrate: Being in a work environment where I feel free to be myself and have a good time doing the job!
