My Life is a Constant Irony

Yesterday I was working on a post telling how much less stress I'm under now that I've changed my work hours. I leave an hour earlier and go home an hour earlier than before and that one hour has made such a difference in the traffic that Baret has noted a marked difference in my attitude when I come home.

I still have my problems and run-ins and aggravations, but it is much less.

So I had this post knocking around in my head yesterday but I didn't have time to get it out - I intended to write & post it when I got home.

Here's where the irony comes in.

I was almost in an accident coming home from work yesterday.

A car started coming over in my lane - I was laying on the horn but the car kept coming over (surprise, surprise). All I could do was swerve sharply to the right and floor it to hurry and get past so I wouldn't get hit. As I zoomed past, the front end of the car (thankfully it was coming over at a snail's pace) nearly grazing my back end, I looked in my rearview mirror to see a little old lady behind the wheel. She could barely see over the steering wheel and she was, just as slowly, easing back into her lane - she hadn't heard my horn and hadn't seen me, apparently, until I was almost completely past her. I watched and she then slowly began inching back over into the right lane still not looking to see if anyone was there. She didn't even glance in her mirrors.

I got home upset and shaking badly - it was that close. Isn't it ironic, don't you think?

I found my Beth Gibbons CD! It wasn't in the freezer (and I did check), but behind my driver's seat. I never saw it. Baret rode with me somewhere this week and he found it (without even looking, of course). That figures because then he gets to give me "the look" as he shakes his head chidingly; the look that says "you silly, absent-minded little girl, you would lose your fingers if they weren't attached". Sadly, it's true. I would.

Since tomorrow is Good Friday and that is a holiday, today is officialy pseudo-Friday - which is just as good for me. We're having boiled crawfish at Baret's family's Sunday - the first this year, and I CANNOT WAIT. I talked to Mom yesterday and she asked me what our Easter plans were. I said something along the lines of, "Well, we're going to Baret's family's because they are boiling crawfish. And I love you guys and everything, but I will choose crawfish over you." Actually it was all good; they were planning to have Easter around our schedule so we'll be having another Easter dinner/supper with them. Hopefully talk around the dinner table will be as colorful this year as it was last - let's put it this way, conservative folks would not want to have dinner with us.

Hope everyone has a Happy Easter weekend!

    I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting
    my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup?
    I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% certain. Any suggestions or advice would be
    greatly appreciated. Cheers

    Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you're using?
    I'm looking to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a hard
    time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like
    you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with
    some pics to drive the message home a little bit,
    but other than that, this is great blog. A great read.
    I will definitely be back.

    Hmm is anyone else experiencing problems with the images on this blog loading? I'm trying to determine if its a problem on my end or if it's the blog. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog. Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking about setting up my own but I'm not sure where to start. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Appreciate it

    Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form? I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm having difficulty finding one? Thanks a lot!

    Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. However imagine if you added some great images or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this site could certainly be one of the most beneficial in its niche. Fantastic blog!

    Howdy, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i
    was just curious if you get a lot of spam comments? If so how do you prevent
    it, any plugin or anything you can recommend? I get so much lately it's driving me mad
    so any assistance is very much appreciated.
