And the Hits Just Keep on Coming

Remember a few weeks ago when my mojo was off? Yeah, well, the gremlins are back again.  It started last week with the cable going out, followed by a positive test for too much radon.  The cable is back working for the moment, but what to do about the radon? I called the state and they hemmed and hawed and really wouldn't tell me what to do.  But it seems I at least I need to do another test, and potentially install a pump system to remove it.  That was last week.  On to this week, which only gets better.  

Yesterday, one of the neighbors calls to complain about the state of the community's financial reports, and since I'm the treasurer, I'm the one they like to talk down to, because they know all there is to know about QuickBooks. And of course he wanted to talk about it right while I was about to have my annual female exam - with my feet in the air - and on Valentine's Day of all days!  

Then this morning I wake up to a freaking cold house - I have the thermostat set to 68 but the temperature was showing 60 degrees.  I got it back functioning again, and it seems to be cooperating for the moment. But I need to have someone come look at it, and of course had to take the day off.  

To top all that, I slipped on some black ice in the parking lot this morning and went down flat on my face and spread eagle. I'll be sore for days.

Woe is me - It's only 10:00 in the morning, but I can tell it's going to be a day spent with a lot of chocolate and diet pepsi.  The good thing I guess is that there's nowhere to go but up.

New 'Do

For probably the last 10 years or so, I've had pretty much the same hairstyle. For the most part, it's been long, all one length, and I would eventually put it up in a ponytail almost every day, because I couldn't stand having it in my face. It drove me crazy, but I didn't know what to do with it, and at the same time, I liked that I could basically get up and go every day without a lot of effort. For the past several months now, I've been threatening to do something different and drastic, and finally, yesterday, I did. At the recommendation of Angel, I made an appointment with her stylist. It took several weeks to get in, but finally, the day arrived. Angel went with me, for moral support, and to be the photographer. I went in with some basic ideas, but after some consultation and looking at photos with Francine, this is what I ended up with. First, the "before" shot: In process: And finally, the finished product: I can't remember the last time
Hi, my name's Tracie and I'm a Mormon. That being said, I've provided enough context for the conversation I had with the receptionist at work today: Christy: (Showing me a photo) What picture is this movie from? Me: Mmmm, Serendipity maybe? Christy: should know this. Me: I should? Christy: (Finally) It's from the movie "Charlie"! Me: How would I know that? I don't watch Mormon movies. They're dumb. Now that I've let the cat out of the bag, I guess I should also confess that I also don't listen to Mormon pop music (other than the original recording of The Forgotten Carols), or read Mormon fiction. So sue me. Let's face it, it's not like most of them are of real quality anyway. When it comes to Mormon music, I'll stick with my MoTab and the hymns of Zion.

Triple D Divas Do Northern Utah

Last Saturday, the Triple D Divas met for a day trip get-away to Northern Utah - specifically Logan and Brigham City (with a little touch of Idee-ho thrown in for good measure). We started our journey with lunch at the Bluebird Cafe. Everyone knows about the Bluebird - it's about the oldest place on main street, and is tradition for anyone whose ever done a Logan Temple Trip. We went in to see the Logan Tabernacle, and I snapped this cool picture of the oragn pipes. (Of course, now that we're all in our 40's and have shrinking bladders, the Tabernacle also made for a clean and convenient potty stop.) ...Also a view of the Logan Temple spires from outside the Tabernacle...    From there, it was off to Glossner's Cheese Factory for some squeaky cheese. After that, we went to the Pepperidge Farms Outlet, and the girls all found some cookies and stuff.  But nothing really excited me there.  However, the outlet is located in
