Wednesday, February 24, 2010....
Any readers following me on a regular basis know if it's Wednesday, it's time to Rant and Rave about the past week. Without further adieu, here are my Rants and Raves from the past week:
Rave: I saw Kathy Griffin last week and she was great! Her bit on Hoarders and Steven Segal's show had me hysterically laughing. Anyone who watches Hoarders would completely understand that even the opening credits has you want to jump off your couch and CLEAN.
Rant: Monday the 15th, I get a phone message from local police department starting off with something like this: "This is a message about Homeland Security. We're looking for 2 suspects in your neighborhood who robbed a home and are on foot." Okay, what does have to do with Homeland Security? Are they planting bombs? Wanting to know more, I call the cops and am told not to worry. I am told they are not far from being caught. According to the news report that evening, they don't know their names and no arrests have been made. So. How is this close to them being caught?
Rant: Friday the 19th, the police are pounding on my door. I find out that while I was in NYC and hubby away for the evening, my new neighbors were robbed (the house is empty and undergoing renovations). I thought an arrest was imminent? Guess not. [Note: robberies are rare in my neighborhood. I was the last house robbed in 2001, but it was an inside job by a cleaning crew I hired for a furnace puff back cleanup].
Rave: My hubby completely knew he was in the doghouse last night and made the effort to really pitch in and do things. He now knows that when I say I don't want to cook tonight, it's take-out or dinner out.
Rave: Coffee with a friend last week whom I haven't seen in about a month. It was great to catch up and see her really happy.
Rave: Friend came over last night to catch up and watch a movie. I was happy that we were able to do this. She's practically a single mom with 2 kids so time out for her is rare.
Rant: My friend who came over last night out found out last Thursday that her landlord sold the house she's renting. She has till 3/15 to find a place,pack up everything and move. I told I'd help her, but she's horrible at accepting any help. I hope she takes me up on the offer.
Rave: Restaurant week starts up on the 28th in a neighboring town. It's the first time the town is doing it and it will be nice to try a new place for a person on a very limited budget.
That's it for me. I would love to read any Rants and Raves you want to share?
