Wasting Time

So I managed to waste my whole evening by getting sucked into surfing the web....Figures! I did come across some really cool blogs and sites though...thats an upside....right?

One neat thing that I saw was a list of states etc that I've been to - here goes my try at it:

Bold the states you've visited; underline the states you've lived in; and italicize where you are living now.

Alabama / Alaska / Arizona / Arkansas / California / Colorado / Connecticut / Delaware / Florida / Georgia / Hawaii / Idaho / Illinois / Indiana / Iowa/ Kansas / Kentucky / Louisiana / Maine / Maryland / Massachusetts / Michigan / Minnesota / Mississippi / Missouri / Montana / Nebraska / Nevada / New Hampshire / New Jersey / New Mexico / New York / North Carolina / North Dakota / Ohio / Oklahoma / Oregon / Pennsylvania / Rhode Island / South Carolina / South Dakota / Tennessee / Texas / Utah / Vermont / Virginia / Washington / West Virginia / Wisconsin / Wyoming / Washington D.C /

And to add to the above - countries in Europe!

Andorra / Austria / Belgium / Cyprus / Czech Republic / Denmark / Finland / France / Germany / Greece / Hungary / Iceland / Ireland / Italy / Liechtenstein / Luxembourg / Malta / Monaco / Netherlands / Norway / Poland / Portugal / Romania / San Marino / Spain / Sweden / Switzerland / Turkey / United Kingdom /

So the grand total is: 21 States (incld D.C.) and 13 countries (total 15 with US & Canada)

Yet another new goal: 2010 Goal (gives me a few years): 40 States and 20 countries

So it is off to bed I go - night night!

My newest hobby...

You know that your life is getting dire when finding a forum dedicated to crocheting makes you happy! Yup, for those who don't know it, I've been bitten by the crochet bug! I bet you are sitting there thinking "Crochet??? Isn't that what my Grandma did?" No, I am not suffering from a mid-life crisis at 26. I basically think that it is really cool to be making those funky scarfs that are all the rage right now, and have even started my own afghan (will post a picture of it once its done)

Thats all for now....sleep is calling to me!

Living on a Ranch Goal revisited

So, its Friday night and I am sitting in my apartment. No, not a normal event but one that does happen from time to time (can not go out every weekend - the bank account would not like that one too much). I've been thinking (scary concept, I know) about what I really want out of life. On one of my web sites I believe that I commented that I wanted to live on a ranch someday. Okay, nice concept Kimberly, but several things that might be against that goal.
  1. First off - I'm an accountant - not exactly a viable job to have when you live in the middle of several thousand acres of land. Unless I do the books for the ranch, but again, not exactly a full time job there.
  2. So, I could always help out around the ranch...ummm - what do I know about ranch life? I have absolutely no realistic idea of what it involves. Sure, I've read a lot - but what do I know about cattle and crops, horses and machinery, misc farm animals and weather reports - not a heck of a lot, thats for sure!
  3. Ranches are an expensive venture - definitely not exactly cash rich right now.
  4. I do not even know anyone that owns a ranch, so marrying into one probably will not work - and what honest, down to earth rancher would want to marry a globe-trotting city girl? If you know any, send him my way :-)
  5. I've never even been to a rodeo!! That is another black mark against me - I just keep thinking of them don't I?

I could probably fill a book with all that I don't know about ranching, and have enough left over for at least one sequel! So, I've now decided that I will cross this goal off my list, and replace it with a future vacation to Montana or Wyoming on one of those working Dude Ranches (City Slickers - Women in the West episode). Good enough exchange - I'll be able to say that I lived on a ranch for a week :-) One goal eliminated, another added!

Back From Vacation

Well I survived the last few work days and had an excellent time on vacation. The weather was not the best, but it was still great to have 2 weeks without thinking about work! I am definently not looking forward to going back tomorrow! Should be a lot of fun......not! Well, I know that this was short, but I must unpack, grab a quick bite to eat and then pass out from exhaustion - going on 30 hours awake with only a 30 minute cat nap on the plane!
