Especially the kind where you are paralyzed by fear and can't move a muscle only to wake up and find that you are still paralyzed by fear (from God knows what cause I sure don't) and still can't move at all. Only after I tell myself ' it's just a nightmare' about 20 times can I eventually convince myself it's all in my mind....and I really can move after all.
I hate it when that happens.
Seeing as I am WIDE awake now (thanks nightmare!) let's see if I can come up with anything semi-blog-worthy.
* My camera situtation. Managed to pry the lens cover open several times this weekend but the quality of the pix got worse with each picture I took. So? Shipping it off to Sony tomorrow...eh...today. Seeing that they will call me before they complete the repair (with an exact price) figure that's the way to go. The $181 I mentioned in an earlier post is a special they have that will fix anything. Rather than go that route, I'll choose the 'getting what you pay for' option. While it will mean I'll be camera-less when my friend is here next week, I'll make sure she brings her camera so at least one of us will be able to take pix.
* Attended a BBQ/Fundraiser for Candidate Arturo Jimenez -DPS School Board District 5. I'll blog about this in depth sometime this week. I was the only non-parent there and seeing as Arturo is running for the School Board, the majority of the discussions focused on neighborhood schools. All in all, really interesting stuff. And did you know that PRESCHOOL can cost a minimum of $600 a month? For one kid? That just floors me. Btw, had my first ever taste of Chile Verde with sides of freshly made pinto beans and other great sides. Totally authentic Mex fare that reminds me of home.
* The downside of Fall. Ok, am letting the cat out of the bag here. I am not on the ' I love Fall and think it's wonderful' bandwagon. Nope, I'm not. Sorry. I love Summer in CO and am really not ready to let go. The death of Daylight Savings time as well. THAT will be one sorry day. Also? While my first Winter here was cake, last Winter? Forget it. Don't want another one like that! I know all the stats (and all you Denver peeps) will tell me that last Winter was a fluke. I hope you're right, cause I really don't want to go thru that again. My wrists don't want to go thru that again either. I don't want the 4 foot drifts in my driveway that took 2 1/2 days to clear. Ditto for the sheets of ice that covered my street for 2 months. Seeing as I'm on a rant roll, what is with all these freakin' fuzzy brown HUMONGOUS spiders that are coming out of the woodwork? They are everywhere! Ugly suckers too. Have killed 4 in the last 2 days. If my camera worked I would take pix of the suckers to show you how huge and fuzzy and annoying they are. Little, don't come to Denver anytime soon.
* The upside of Fall. Hoodies, Av's games, Nugget's games. Turning off the A/C and sleeping with the windows open...until it gets too cold outside. Hot chocolate in the morning. Leaves turning colors. And that's about it. I know I live in CO now and Winter is a fact of life. I just don't want this Winter to be a repeat of last Winter. What are the chances that we will totally skip Winter and have an early Spring? Fair? Possible? Not an ice cube's chance in hell? I say we VoSnap it.
On that note, nnsd and have a great week!
