But yesterday was the first day she came in early and guess what? She took MY spot!! Ohhh baby, that's not ok. As a friend in my office said, "You have a spot??". Ok, so it isn't actually my spot, but the people who get here as early as I do all have places where they park regularly. Anyhoo, so I have to park in a different space when I get here and then when I sit down to try to get my morning started, she wants to talk. Ummmm, I come here at 6:15 so that I can sit in utter silence for almost an hour before I'm expected to interact socially with anyone. Believe me, it's better for all of us this way.
Two positive things- (this shows how childish I am :) She got here late today (I almost beat her in) and today she took truck guy's spot and left mine as it should be... open... for me :)

Yesterday the weirdest thing happened.... the sun came out, and it didn't rain, and it stayed that way ALL DAY!! It hasn't done that since Nate and I got back from our honeymoon over two and a half weeks ago. I forgot how happy it could make me to just have the sun out. In honor of the sun's reappearance, I changed the CD in my car to Switchfoot's 'Nothing is Sound' album and skipped straight to my sunny songs. If you don't have this album, it is an excellent source of sun-themed music :) Between, 'The Shadow Proves the Sunshine' and 'Setting Sun', it'll put you in the moody for some sunny driving. Today if it is still sunny, then I intend to drive home to some old school Yellowcard (think Ocean Avenue album). No songs with "sun" in the name, but the California rock makes you feel like you are driving along the coastline in summer... fabulous, just fabulous :)

Well, I got home and thought "All right, I've gotten it changed". Well, you know at least the hard stuff.... right? It was just about then that I started counting just how many other entities I had to contact to change my info. Still, it's not too bad... I'm wonder woman, i'll start right now. I log onto my online savings account..... they need a copy of my marriage license. Ok, I log onto my checking account...same thing. My credit card doesn't tell me how to change my name and doesn't offer it as an online service, so I assume I will have to mail them something as well. Ok, no biggie... I'll just change over some more minor stuff. Oh wait.. I need to change my cc account before I can change any of my automatic payments. Ummmm, I know! I'll get started changing it at work! Oh wait, I need to change my checking account first so that it won't screw up my direct deposit. Ummm, ok I've got it!! I know what I can accomplish right now! So I headed for the kitchen, got an ice cream sandwich and called it a day :P
P.S.- I called Nate at this point and told him that the next time we get married, he has to change his name :)

Or rather, love of basketball :) This weekend I went to College Station with my hubby and met up with my brother, sister-in-law and niece to go watch some Fightin' Texas Aggie basketball..... I have forgotten how much I ADORE live basketball! When they announced our team as "your, 8th ranked Fightin' Texaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaas Aggies!" I got goosebumps, goosebumps I say. My brother had a similar reaction. It's so amazing to have a good b-ball team! Just hearing them say 8th ranked produced emotional reactions in my brother and me. They were just on their way up my junior and senior year (up from winning 0 big 12 games the years before, don't cha know) and now they're there baby!!
Anyway, the Ags beat the hell outta Oklahoma State and I got to say... it felt pretty stinkin good :) Bring on March Madness... I've got full cable and I intend to use it!!
