  So, I'm taking the night work, no work, no work.  Actually, it was a pretty calm day.  I'm guessing the crap will hit the fan sometime tomorrow and well.....

  105 hours on 3rd street last week.  2 1/2 weeks crammed into 7 days.  Gotta make changes.  So my posse -- should I or shouldn't I is the question of the night.  If I should and it happens it's going to be major changes to operations.... if I don't there is going to be major changes.  Email your votes....

  So, that was a bit of rambling.  Sorry, if you're in the posse, please vote.  I'm waffling and no waffling is allowed. 

Good Night -- sleep well (and VOTE)....


baby jake and his toy -- he's scared of me.....but he's growing .... needs a babysitter over the weekend ...anyone need a gig!

Oh What a Week

  So, Diva's had the busy busy week.  She is pooped.  The help have all left for the evening -- and the controlled chaos starts all over tomorrow.....the work is getting done.

  I'm in my pink flannel jammies and ready to work.

  Coffee is ready too.

Happy end of February.

w2's and 1099's

 .... are a lot of behind the scenes work.....been sorting and signing the IRS copies all night long.  getting ready to ship them off .... no it's not just hit the button and wait for them to pop out....maybe i'm just a bit crabby

.... but our 1099's and w2's look fabulous ....

.... worked all day -- 6:00am and forward --- had a tired/headache/nasty moment but my drug of choice (advil) seemed to chase it all away -- 3 at a time does wonders I was numb

the seed -- the seed -- the seed

the mountain of snow at the office
can't wait for this shit to melt....

i took a brief break and dashed to the library for the Ewniquely Quilt Guilds annual show at the St. Peter Public Libary today  --- it's kinda crammed in and hard to take good pix's (amid the screaming toddlers) ... but more to come -- it was good for the mind and soul.  I may get to sew again someday.  Fabric treats arrived yesterday .... drooling over them.

I've lost my mind

   I'm just plain nuts. 
   The world is getting to me.
   I really need attitude adjustment or
      maybe a different occupation.

  Not sure -- gonna be thinking on it
      a lot in the upcoming months.

the big blower

  the boys in the big yellow equipment moved all the snow off my sidewalk and boulevard this morning... the big blower filled 6 trucks on my side of the block alone....I was very happy to see them....might need to get them some treats....

  more snow over the weekend.  just plain cold today.


I failed to mention -- the snow removal was at 5:30 am ....

 and Oh Shit, as in my Dad, it's going to keep on snowing --


Monday, February 8, 2010

Well, it happened

  the battery went dead on my faithless FORD -- again .... hasn't happened for a while --- DEAD ......  so I walked up the street -- found the parents and his's home in the garage awaiting the charger tomorrow -- one of these times it's going to poop out at a bad time.  going to have to purchase my personal booster/starter/gizmo (elder carries one with him) ...

  miss skylar's spiffy well used beemer is in the extra side with my atv ... too bad she didn't leave her keys -- i could be cruising in german style -- all during our lovely winter weather!!!!  

  and frankly it can quit snowing and blowing any time now... this craps gotta start melting (and soon) ... seed order #1 was shipped today ...

ho ho ho

Superbowl Sunday

   So is there a game today?   Sorry, football is not high on my list of favorite viewing.  It's snowing and blowing already. 

   My homework awaits me....another day in my crazy life.


  so I've blown off my "home" work ..... sorry, your returns won't be done tomorrow ... instead I just finished ordering SEED ....... yes, there will be a PATCH in my future!!!  $400 later and I'm not done ....ugh.

Saturday, February 6, 2010


damn, it's gonna snow for the next three days...enough of the white shit -- bring on SPRING !!!!

So, just how exciting

  is this Diva's Friday night.....

  I'm still at the office -- I know the excitement is overwhelming .... but the advance weather forecast is not looking good and I have a family event to attend later next week .... so if I keep hitting hard might be okay in the end.

  Miss Skylar was quite the trooper this afternoon ---- she had to deal with the walk in customers, the wack jobs that call --- why would my software company call and try to sell me more -- during the busy season -- they are driving me nuts, they already get $10,000 of my money.  

  Okay now I'm whining....sorry.....just a tired diva....

early to rise early to ....

  no it does not work that way.  but i did chisel my tush out of bed at 5:05 this morning -- hit up McD's on the way by at 5:30 -- office and working hard .... lots got done today .....

  too bad i didn't leave early -- the freezing rain is starting to stick and get a bit ugly.  as soon as the defrosters were warm i rolled for the farm. 

  31' and freezing rain -- i'm really hoping the rodent (the groundhog) was wrong.  after all it is a rodent isn't it.

friday be coming (in 2.2 hours)

hump day / yoga day / beginning of hell month day

   diva just needs to get more hours into the day .... doesn't seem to be happening.  it probably doesn't help when i take off for yoga (session #2) -- kinda liking the yoga --- the hour seems to fly by  -- there is a friday night session too ....

   not sure what's up with the weather but i heard freezing rain spoken ... don't really like that statement -- melting would be better....

   i'm still lobbying for the st paddy's day queen position -- i am part of the royal court on 3rd street -- and i'm told irish has nothing to do with the job !!!!   after all i've only missed on parade ever!!!  (1995 when I thought I needed a mid tax season break and went to LasVegas -- i musta been nuts)

tuesday in diva-dom

  cold, fresh snow, but the sun shone brightly.  i hope it lasts, the melting needs to begin, slowly.  it was another wacky day in my world, so i came home early -- 8:22 vs 9:22 --- time for some web - browsing, my book, then bed.

  sleep tight -- don't let the bedbugs bite ....
