Wednesday, March 17, 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: See my lovely new Rant & Rave badge, well, Mrs. 4444 made it for me! I was pleasantly surprised to get her first email last night telling me she wanted in on R&R this week, but when she sent over 2 badges for my opinion, I was stoked.
Rave: Food Pantry Dinner was a lot of fun last week. Our group is pretty diverse, so our conversations are always fun. The pantry was happy to receive over 50 lbs of food and especially happy to get some pasta because they had run out.
Rant: Getting up at 3 a.m. to bail out a sump pump for several hours before the electricity came back on.
Rave: I'm finally starting to get out of my "cranky/moody-ass" funk I've been in. It started late Thursday and yesterday was the first day I didn't want to hate the world.
Rave: Spidey Man, a.k.a. dad, did not get flooded this past weekend. He lives by the water and has always freaked out about the house getting flooded. It's happened twice in my 44 years of life.
Hubby's Rave: Yes, I'm giving him one because he mentioned a rant & rave last night. Although he doesn't want his own blog, he wants people to know what he's thinking. His rave was seeing all the trees down because that meant free firewood for our wood burning stove.
Hubby's Rant: When I told him I saw a guy out and about yesterday in his pickup truck picking up the cut up trees on the side of the road that hubby wanted for wood burning stove.
Rave: My friends are celebrating their 20th Wedding Anniversary. They've had their ups and downs, but are one of the few couples I've come across that are truly happy.
Rant: Asking for extra ice in my soda at McDonald's and pulling up at the drive-thru to get a soda with no ice. I asked for a cup with extra ice and got 1/2 cup. When I asked for more I got the response "I have to charge you for extra ice if you want more". Seriously? If you put ice in the drink in the first place, I probably wouldn't have requested more ice (note: a non-flat fountain soda with extra ice truly puts a smile on my face. I know. I'm whacked).
Okay, that's it for me. I would love to read any Rants and Raves you want to share?

Please, please be respectful and do not use the linky thing if you are just promoting your blog (yes, this is another Rant of mine).
