Random Thoughts January 2008

Whoever anonymously paid for my and Marathon Girl’s dinner the other night, we want you to know how grateful we are for your generosity. While attending a Utah Jazz game the other day I was looking over the rosters for both teams and realized every player on the court was younger than me. It made me feel old even though I’m only 32.

Though I appreciate the tax rebates Congress and the President have put together, I really wish they’d do something about all the FICA taxes I pay. That’s money I’ll never see again.

The only thing harder than getting up for work on Monday morning is waking up on Monday morning and knowing you’ll have to drive to work in a blizzard.

The most amazing thing about adding 25 pounds of muscle in the last year is the amount protein I need to maintain it.

The older I get, the more I dislike cold weather.

The best part of coming home from work is seeing the faces of all three kids light up when I walk in the door.
