oooh, goody!!!

four things...

mich is back to school today. feeling better after he had some BK yesterday for lunch. the o is still sickly and terribly sleepy and crabby. gave him some tylenol as he felt a big warm. but he is doing ok.

we close tomorrow at 10am. that should be interesting. cleaned the spiders out today (there were a lot from sitting empty for 3 months). buying a fridge tonight. i think.


and...if you'd like to help me win some amazingly superb paper goodness, please go to Studio Calico and register as a new user (free, no personal info, just an email address and no junk except perhaps a confirmation). then, go to message boards, announcements, and click on the 'bring a friend' post. post your own comment and in the body, state your name and my name, karen/akaliz (i think there's more than one karen on there so be sure to put the akaliz part). the more referrals i get, the better chance i have to win a 6-month sub to SC. and i love it there, but cannot always afford their kits. actually, i've only purchased one and it is exquisite! so....help a girl out!!! you have until this saturday, may 3rd like late night to post.


oh, and one weird thing. i signed up with wbap (our local am station) for "beat the street". you sign up online and if they call you at 6:13am for the life of the promotion, you have 15 minutes to call them back to give your guess on how the market will close for the day. well, they called me yesterday. i had a chance to win $82,000!!! wth??? and i missed it!!! a lady from the station called me around 4pm yesterday and told me that my name was called and they gave me a consolation prize of $100 to Dallas Gold & Silver. so, that was cool. not nearly as cool as $82k, but it would have been hard to win. mike informed me that you don't just guess up or down for the market, you have to guess the exact number by one-tenth of a point. so...not so bad. :)

later kids and thanks! internet might be turned off tomorrow or thursday. i hope to be back up by the weekend but that is doubtful.
