Another New Year

Filed under: Uncategorized — shelly @ 10:35 pm

Unbelievable! Only (approx) 25.5 hours left in 2005.
Not a stellar year by any account. For some, in fact, 2005 downright SUCKED.
I’ve come to accept two facts: the older I get the faster time passes, and the older I get the smaller the world becomes. I read this somewhere (paraphrasing): When you are a kid the time between Halloween and Christmas seems to last forever – as an adult the time between Christmases seems to be as short as the time between 10/31 and 12/25.
Here’s a little exercise that will make you feel “old”: Think back 10 years – What items do you use on a daily basis that did not even exist (that you were aware of) then? For example: The computer I’m writing this on (laptop). I had a cellphone, but it was for emergencies only – now I use it constantly – more than my landline. My PDA. TiVO. iPod. 2-way text pager. Digital camera. eBay. Mapquest. eMail. Wireless internet. Cable modem. Camera phones.
How about words & phrases we didn’t use 10 years ago? “Google it”, “Text me”, “Waaassuuup?!”, “Word!”, “Whatever!” “Is that your final answer?” “The tribe has spoken” “You are the weakest link…bubbye” “Reality TV” “Landline” “Snail mail” “LOL” “Blog” “Download” – I could go on, but you get the picture.
What will 2006 bring us? Oh the wonders that await!

Post Holiday fatigue syndrome

Filed under: Other Stuff — shelly @ 9:12 pm

Man! I don’t know about you…but I am BEAT! This holiday season absolutely wiped me out! I feel like I could sleep for days straight. Unfortunately…work won’t wait “days” for me. Another bummer is that there is a “freeze” on time off right now due to computer training classes at work (as if I need freaking classes on how to work a ‘puter).
I know the stress/fatigue levels are reaching critical levels when I get numbness and tingling in my hands and face – that started Monday. There are new toys to be put away. Rooms to be un-decorated. Home offices to reorganize. Resolutions to be written. To do lists to complete. The list goes on and on. I feel my face tingling again!
That being said…I am going to sleep – who cares if it’s only 9pm?! Not me!
