Thank Goodness & The Skip It

I went into work and got surprised with a double shift. Um thanks...I didn't pack a lunch. So there went the calorie count for the day. 

I did get really great work news! I'm being sent to Pittsburgh for some training. Yay!!! I'll get 4 days of a vacation...well technically 2 because I'll be in training for the others. What will I be doing when I'm not training? Shopping! And surprise, I'll be leaving week after next. Here's to hoping my room has free internet!

Maybe you can help me figure this out... Why, oh why are old people so afraid to pass semi's and tractor trailers on the highways? I mean really? If you're going to drive in the left lane then guess what..you need to punch it. If you're going to be a snail move it over and get behind or in front of that 18 wheeler. I will ride your bumper until you move! 

On a random note, I really wish I still had my "skip it" toy from when I was a kid. That thing was a major work out and it kept track of how many turns you did!

I never actually had a skip-it, but I used to love using my friends. And is it bad I still remember their jingle, "But the very best news of all, is there's a counter on the ball" haha
