    Looking forward to a weekend with a hubby I haven't seen in two weeks, and the beautiful forest here is always nice on a sunny weekend. Gardening gardening gardening! The house prices in my northern CA county are at a median of $450,000...and I live in the woods! Like other SF bay area people, we have driven up prices beyond belief, I am lucky, I live on family property, no rent, no payments...trying to buy one myself!

    Still holding my breath here, and wishing Annasmom, and C many blessings! Good to hear all of you have a 'normal' life when not addicted to WS like myself!

    I recently went back to work after taking a year off. We closed our antique store, just sold the property and are now house-hunting as well. We're in WV and we certainly don't have housing prices like some of you, but we are in a higher area for real estate than most of our immediate area. Summersville has a beautiful 2700 acre lake and the area attracts alot of people for second homes and retirees (these are the markets that jack up prices). Christine, I'm kinda like you, we need to upgrade, but I don't wanna move either!!

    I'm finally getting adjusted back to a 45 hour work week plus travel time - I feel like I've been robbed of all my leisure time. However, I still stop by here every evening to check on Anna and all my favorite cases.

    LOL, think this sums it up?

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    Jump to: navigation, search
    Thumb twiddling is an activity that is done with the hands of an individual whereby the fingers are interlocked and the thumbs circle around a common focal point, usually in the middle of the distance between the two thumbs.
    While it is an expression of at least a moderate amount of manual dexterity, thumb twiddling is frequently used as an example of a useless, time-wasting activity. It is equated with other activities that are also considered useless by the speaker. Therefore it is most often used as a synonym for an activity that will take the attention of the performer, but will not yield any useful results.
    Thumb twiddling can be seen as an expression of which hand is dominant within the individual. The weaker handed thumb will "follow" the dominant handed thumb in the activity.
    You won't cry for my absence, I know -
    You forgot me long ago. Am I that unimportant...?
    Am I so insignificant...? Isn't something missing?
    Isn't someone missing me?

    Devote some time to the other cases that I am involved in here at WS's. I have also been trying to update the myspace pages that I maintain for those cases. I currently am trying to keep up with 9 myspace profiles, that alone keeps me busy.
    I still manage to spend time with the family though and am enjoying my 2 grandbabies.

    Oh and I forgot to mention the time that I spend trying to keep Christine out of trouble. I think that is a lost cause.

    Doing more laundry. (does it ever end?) The little guy watched Batman. Last time I looked, the Cubs were winning 8 zip. I wish they'd save some of those runs.

    Having pork chops for dinner..... going to our friends again. Will watch Spiderman 2 with the little guy for the umpteenth time. Looking forward to seeing Spiderman 3 Friday! We have our tix and going to the 2:30pm show. Then next Sunday we have Cub tickets! Can't wait to see them play the Nat's. My son will get to ride the "el" train in Chicago for the first time. Following Sunday is mothers day, and oh boy do I hope we have our "good news" by then......... Then the following Sunday is the lilac parade! Can't wait for that too.........

    Cubby, do you live in the Chicago area? I grew up there. I heard last night that the Cubs, Sox and Bulls all won their games

    Shadow, I think we are tied for number of MySpace profiles. I told myself I wouldn't create any more new ones, but I just can't help myself when I see a case that needs a profile!

    Just heard from my sister. She, my nephew and father are driving to Phoenix. They are in Tulsa now. She thought she was hallucinating seeing all the armadillos on the side of the road.

    I think we're all going to be thinking we're hallucinating when we finally see the dna results! (A good hallucinating, in that we finally see them.)

    What I love about the airports in Arizona and Texas are the "armadillo droppings" they sell. They're really a caramel/nut type candy but I love the name!

    Cubby, I was LMAO at your "Spring Classes For Men" post. Hilarious, and so true!

    I grew up in the near west burbs of Cicero and Berwyn. My family lived in LaGrange/Countryside area for a while, and now they live in the Oak Brook/Lombard area.
