Flower Mound, Texas

I've got a question for everyone. Do you look at your map to see where people are that visit your site? I occasionally do, and want to look more. Tonight I took a look and found Flower Mound, Texas. I want to find out more about the great U.S. of A., so in doing this I plan on visiting the websites for hometowns of visitors. Now mind you, I will look at other places other than America, but really can you name any more beautiful and varied place than where we all live?

A little info about Flower Mound:
"Ten minutes from anywhere in the world"
Population consists of 62,450 of which the largest age group is the 35-44 year old range
Incorporated in 1961 (still a young city)
Ranked as one of the safest communities in Texas
Now we're getting to the good part, 232 days clear or partly cloudy skies AND average snowfall of 2.7 inches a year (yeah baby now we're talking)
Average temp is 75.8F

I am sure with my little visit that I didn't get all the info, but I did see some pretty scenery and learned a little. Just what I got on the internet for!

Goodnight all have a great week;)

Edited: for comparison, my hometown July 2007 population: 947

Last night Bigblock and I were watching Overhaulin and this guy was actually kissing his car, and he was leaning into it and everything, Bigblock says this is a man thing.

Now a little background here, this week has seen a dear family friend pass away. B used to watch my children, and kept them from the time they were small babies until they were in school full time. So, as often happens, we have been talking about arrangements for ourselves, or what we intend to do if the other passes before ourselves. I know, I know, you're thinking how does this tie into Overhaulin, well I'm getting there.

Bigblock has had several cars in his lifetime. The only one he has hung onto though still sits in the garage. It's his pride and joy. I think he would get rid of me before that car, well he has had it longer LOL. It doesn't like me. Alot of his cars have been like that. For instance, when there was a place I needed to go, and this was the only way I had to get there, it popped and cracked on me ALL the way. When I find a key that fits and will start it only to find out it's the WRONG key and now won't shut the car OFF now dammit, I think it is secretly laughing at me. This is the car that I don't dare leave a scratch on. It's also the car Bigblock knows I have a tough time shifting, oh yeah baby it's a standard, and it takes BOTH hands to grab the gear shift and woman handle it into gear, he won't fix it because he doesn't want me to drive the stupid car. It's a car meant to be handled rough. But not by anyone but Bigblock.

So what kind of car is it? It's a 1965 Chevelle with a 454 BIGBLOCk engine, some kind of special headers and mufflers (whatever) oh yeah baby it will go. Every time we see Overhaulin on TV, Bigblock mentions that he would love to have this car overhauled.

So what does this have to do with funeral arrangements you want to know? Well, I have told Bigblock for years that if he dies before me, he will be taking that darn car with him. I have plans. I will take that stupid car to the crusher! Yes, I will have it crushed and I intend to make sure it is as small a package as I can get, and it will be thrown on his chest. Take that Bigblock!! He loves it, he should take it with him! Thing 1 and 2 are in disagreement. They both think they should get this car. So what's a girl to do, but send it with Bigblock? Ahhh true love............

Why yes, my lovelies I am still here. If you haven't read Chef E's post today, you really must. And go read twentyfouratheart too. Those girls crack me up!!

I talked to Thing 1 today! He says Boy C is very mean haha Karma is a uhmmm...Witch (yeah that's what I want to say)....Thing 1 put me through Hell now Boy C is repaying him for me (I love grandkids)

Saw Thing 2 also today....he's doing ok. He has this awesome girlfriend, she calls just to talk to ME....tells me about going shopping and what she buys..*sigh* if he doesn't marry this one, do you think I can adopt her? LOL

So, how is your week going? Seems like everyone is slacking off (INCLUDING me) updating their blog, did you notice that or is just me? It's getting late and this girl has been tired this week, so off to bed with me...have a good week..see ya;)

Man Up Dude

I usually try to keep this a happy place to visit. But, sometimes it's just really hard to find anything to be happy about.
For instance, Bigblock and I had a disagreement last night. So what does he do? He goes in the bedroom shutting both doors, like he is locking me out. What the hell? Man Up Dude and quit acting like a child!! Does your significant other do this too? Or is it just mine?

Have you heard.....

about this guy? He is Paul Levy, and he has asked his employees to come together and find ways so that no one gets laid off! He works for Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital (actually he is the CEO). From reports I read, he is getting 100 emails an hour with suggestions! Now if all American companies would consider something like this, we may all be able to see light at the end of the tunnel.

Ahhh...Spring Break

This week I am on spring break. So what have I been up to so far? Yesterday I went to Unemployment office to check in since I haven't heard/seen anyone and wanted to advise them one of my papers would be late. Did some grocery shopping at WalMart, I really wish another store would come to town and give them a run for their money, I HATE shopping there knowing how they treat their employees, and wouldn't Sam be rolling in his grave to see all the crap from overseas they sell (I believe that was his main pitch, MADE in AMERICA)! However, they are cheapest and in this economy that has to factor in, but I do shop at other stores when I can:) Oh, and I have been catching up on reading, something I can't do without, but has to take a back seat to school work. I am visiting my favorite bloggers and usually follow links to sites they recommend.

Today I could hear the rain beating against the house before I even got out of bed. I know we will probably be grateful for the rain later when it doesn't seem like we can do a rain dance to get any, but I would soooo enjoy one day without it. Can you remember walking in the rain when you were younger? I can, when did I become too old to stop?

On a brighter note, the hubby is still working, don't know how long but we'll take everyday we can. Bigblock and I get our hair cut tomorrow! Yeah, I need some color;) Thing 2 is back home, after being gone working. Heard from Thing 1 a couple of days ago, they are doing well. Gotta run to the store again, I have been craving meatballs and knew I saw a recipe somewhere, so searched and found it at Words of Wisdom from a Smartmouth Broad , Thank you!

I'll be seeing you around, I have an idea for some posts, I'll get back to you with more on that. Have a GREAT day/week...........

I know, I promised you a funny story and didn't get it posted like I thought I would last weekend. I've been busy...you know, those darn things called Finals!

So, it's early in the morning, and I'm bee bopping my way to school. No traffic behind me and I'm going at a pretty good clip, who goes the speed limit? Not me...

I see this car, it's a new red Thunderbird, you know they're supposed to look like the old cars? Well, I have this feeling he's gonna pull out in front of me, and that's just not right, I don't want to put on the brakes this morning. I'm saying "Don't do it, Don't do it, there's nothing behind me, don't do it" He does it...

I get up behind him, I've had to use the brakes...damn it...he goes the speed limit...that's just wrong....I think maybe he'll just keep going and not turn on the speedway..uhmm 4 lane road...he turns.

Well Wunderwoman does not like to follow anyone, especially old men in red cars...so I pull out to pass him and when I get up beside him I turn my head and yell "you're a dumbass, and you drive an ugly car" remember the windows are up, it's cold out. His head whips around, and I mean WHIPS, and he looks at me, by now I'm looking straight ahead again..I know he knows I'm yelling at him. I seriously thought he would injure himself with that head movement.

Now everything is good again. Dumba$$ is behind me, nothing but clean sailing to school. When....here he comes again.. this time on the left side...I'm still upset. So, I start yelling at him again "You're a dumbass and you're car is UGLY." Again, he WHIPS that head to look at me, but now I'm looking straight ahead, again. I just know he knows I'm yelling at him, but he can't really catch me at it. Poor guy probably thought what kind of nutcase is this woman?

He turns off the road and I continue...takes me about an hour to get to school. I keep thinking about it all the way, and now I'm laughing. I mean seriously laughing my butt off..can anyone say roadrage?
