hope all had a great Thanksgiving weekend. I'm currently in Pennsylvania, and it's cold and it's raining and it's supposed to turn to snow any minute. yuck.

Gearing up to go hunting in the morning. PRE buttcrack of dawn. I've already bonked myself in the head with the scope of my rifle, but I hit the bullseye on the target so I guess it's worth it. Don't think I'll have a ton of computer time again, but I'll try to check email before the end of the week. I'll be home Saturday afternoon.

car update and miscellany

Well our deductible is 500 bucks. Good thing I have enough in the savings to cover that. I keep reminding myself it could have been worse. Initial estimate on my car is 1,654 in damages. Don't know about the other vehicle, it wasn't badly damaged at all. After talking to Boss1 about the ticket, we requested a continuance on the court date, instead of our usual procedure of requesting a jury trial. He'll go to the new date and negotiate a lesser fine for us. If he can knock about half of it off I'll be happy, well not as upset.

My rental car is pretty sweet. A 2009 Chevy Impala. It's like a gunmetal blue/grey. The seat is a bit uncomfortable and I already miss my Caliber. Hoping to have it back by the end of the week. I keep forgetting to take camera to work, but once I do I'll upload pics of the damage, because of course I took some. Boss2 wants to borrow my camera so I'm supposed to take it in tomorrow.

Hanging at the station for a BobFM remote. Do any of y'all have BobFM? I love it. An example of the play list, and this is just from what is coming up in the next half hour:

Stone Temple Pilots
Fleetwood Mac

Had some Aerosmith and Eagles before that. As far as I know, these BOB remotes will be the majority of my hours now that NASCAR is over. At least one more football game this Friday. If they lose it's over, and if they win, I won't be around for the following weeks game. I am getting a voicetrack shift for this Sunday, which I'm not sure when I'll tape. I'll either have to come in early to do it before the football game, or stay late and do it after. I could also just come in on Saturday and Sunday to do it, but that would kinda ruin the first full weekend off I've had in forever.

Hoping to finish off Christmas shopping before we go up to PA. If not, I'll have time during my week to myself to try to get some done. That's probably when I'll get some Bubba stuff done, plus search for some new clothes for me. I'm still in need of warm weather stuff, it's gotten so damn cold here.

Well, almost time to do the last break, then head home.

Oh yeah, Bubba and I have been playing Guitar Hero a bit this week. He lost Wii privileges for some unimportant issues, not sure it makes much sense to allow Playstation, but we're doing it. He's getting a little better, but still doesn't do great. He has a lot of fun though. I, however, amaze myself with how well I do, even though my fingers HURT when I'm done. I'm playing on easy, and my career is about half done. I battled Slash of Guns 'n' Roses last night and then played Welcome to the Jungle with him, it was kinda awesome. May try to advance to medium, if we keep up playing. We haven't played in forever, and once the Wii is back, we'll most likely stick with it. I finally bowled a perfect game on the Wii. Took me long enough, but I'm glad I finally did it.

Okay, I'm really done now. Talk to y'all later.

Missy, you ok? You've been a bit quiet.

p.s. haahhahah, my blogger ad right now if about traffic tickets!!! hahahahahaha.

My husband is totally in the doghouse

Why you ask? Cause I know y'all are dying to find out the latest reason why I'm ticked off at the man. Well, it's simple really. HE WRECKED MY CAR!!!!!!!

He was driving to my mom's to finish up the installation of my anniversary present, a remote starter contraption, and drifted into the other lane and caught the back bumper of another vehicle. That vehicle isn't too messed up. My front quarterpanel and headlight are all smashed up. Luckily, noone was hurt, Bubba was in the car with him at the time, I had just pulled into the station in the truck, which I NEVER get to drive. He got a warning, because we couldn't seem to find the registration for the Caliber, and a ticket for unlawful lane usage. I have no clue what our deductible is, but needless to say it's going to drain the savings account to pay it. The ticket will cost us 150 bucks, but if we go to court they'll drop the fine a bit. I'll talk to Boss1 about it and see if it's worth his involvement, I'm not sure the Trooper would drop it to a 0-point violation, he even said as much, that they'd just drop the fine if he went to court. However, the court date is when we'll be in Pittsburgh.....I'm willing to just eat the fine most likely, don't wanna make too many waves, considering the Trooper could have done worse. The downside of working at the firm and doing traffic tickets is knowing all the what-if's.

I missed about an hour of work, cause I left once someone came to cover the race. But I'm back now, and W has the unenviable task of calling the insurance company, plus he'll have to go and get me a new registration card. Now that I think about it, I'd rather the Trooper would have written the registration violation, so we could have tried to make a deal to dismiss the other one and pay the fine on the other. But whatever, it could have been much worse.

Must go voicetrack and then watch the last race of the season. And the last race for the radio station. Blah.

The in law visit

It went well...we pulled off the surprise amazingly. W insists he had no clue, but I was starting to think maybe he did, but who knows. Bubba was so shocked. The party went off great, a bunch of the neighbor girls came over, my mom and Aidan showed and Bubba got spoiled rotten. Tons of new toys and clothes.

We are planning a trip to PA the week after Thanksgiving, for hunting. For the first time since I was a kid, I'll be hunting this year. Look out deer in Greene County, Beachgal is gunning for ya, hoping to fill my freezer. Also, since I can only stay a week, and W likes to spend two weeks, we shopped around and booked me a plane ticket back for 75 bucks. It's flying into Charleston, which isn't too far, and my mom will be able to pick me up. The best part is that I only have to endure the drive UP to PA instead of up and back. That is totally worth the 75 bucks, I tell ya. Bubba will spend the extra week with Grammy and the rest of W's family, and I will have a week home alone, which will be glorious!!!

Watched a fabulous episode of Crossroads on CMT, featuring Def Leppard and Taylor Swift. First, Joe Elliott is still hot, second he sounds fantastic singing country music. Since it was on the DVR, I plan on watching it again, it was that good. Missy, I highly recommend that you catch it if you haven't already.

Ok, well, I'm at the station, for the second to last race of the year, and I'm also flipping over and watching the Steelers game. As of now, it's halftime and they are winning.

Last but not least, HAPPY BIRTHDAY BUBBA. We've told you all day that it's your LAST day ever as a four year old and you are so excited for tomorrow. We love you very much and I look forward to what life with a five year old brings.

So glad all that's over

Wow, is pretty much all I have to say. I'm not sure I really thought Obama would win, but I certainly expected it to be a closer race. My husband is all doom and gloom, however I am cautiously optimistic that things may just change for the better. Noone knows for sure. And no, I won't tell you who I voted for. (bubba keeps asking me and it's annoying.)

Not that I'm such an influential blogger that people will read this and run out and vote or anything. But really, if you're reading and haven't voted, please do so. I waited in line for about an hour after registering. Wasn't so bad. I couldn't go after work because I have to be at the station, and have to have time for dinner and such. W will try to go after his doc appointment, depending on Bubba's behavior. I did find out that he can get curbside assistance, since he cannot wait in line that long. Hopefully that works out.
