Happy National Goof Off Day!

No, I'm not making it up. It's right here.

It doesn't take much

Recently we did the cell phone shuffle. Alex and I were due upgrades, but they didn't have the phone I wanted, so I got the phone Eric wanted and traded with him. His old phone/my new phone is my preferred brand, and the only thing I didn't like was the selection of ring tones.

Yesterday, I found myself in the car (parked, thank you) with a few minutes to kill, so I was messing with my phone and discovered the option to download ring tones. I know, everyone is thinking I've been living under a rock. No, I had never downloaded a ring tone; I've never needed to. My old phones had enough options the I was able to pick something without the added expense. Until yesterday. I scrolled through pages of options, settled on Raiders of the Lost Ark, and voila! I'm cool!

This morning I went to the website to see what else they have. :-) I found VeggieTales.

I wonder if downloading ring tones is addictive...

The rain started Monday morning early, around 2 a.m., I think, and it's been raining ever since. So far we've gotten over five inches of rain, and the tail end of this system just left Texas. We really need rain; we've been in a drought for about five years. I'm not sure that flooding is going to alleviate it in the long run, but what do I know? Good thing God is in control of this and not me. There are people in southern Missouri and Illinois who have been hit much harder and could use prayer from those of you who are so inclined.

The last several weeks I have been increasingly irritable and tired. I haven't been sick, just tired and cranky. At first I thought it was vacation hangover from my trip to Florida. Then I blamed it on my increased work hours for the Annual Valentines Dinner. After that, I just blamed February and its lack of sunshine. Now it's March, and the sun is shining for at least a while almost every day, but it's Lent and I have a lot going on at church.

I'm working on the Nutrition class for my certification, and the very first thing I learned that it is possible to write non-fiction in the manner of Tolkien. I read The Hobbit a few years ago and only finished it because of pure stubbornness. The movies are enthralling, but I have no patience when an author is so detailed that he goes on and on about the hair on the hobbit's feet. That's how my text book is. The first chapter was about 40 pages on water. I'm now on chapter five, the Vitamin Chapter, having endured 100+ pages on water, carbs, protein (and amino acids) and fat. Somewhere around page 120, I started reading about the B vitamins. I only got through the first three before my train of thought derailed (I was studying at work during a bridal shower where about a dozen kids were in attendance, but that's another story) and I gave up. Interesting tidbit, though--vitamin B deficiency is characterized by fatigue, irritability, and inability to concentrate.

Coincidence? I'll let you know.
