PRE-SPRING MAKE-OVER (or pass the Liquid Plumber please!)

Well, my little vacation is over and I must go back to work today.  With all that free time on my hands yesterday I got inspired to do a little 'pre-spring cleaning' on myself... a little make-over of sorts.  I decided to.... shave my legs!  I figured that it was as good a day as any to shave for the first time this year and busted out the Venus razor.  After the first few strokes I realized that I probably should have pulled out the Weed Whacker first to do the preliminary trim.  30 minutes later the bottom of the shower stall looked like the floor of a barber shop, and my legs no longer looked like they belonged to a Sasquatch.  I may have to invest in some Liquid Plumber though... I'm almost positive that my drain was not built to deal with hair clippings of that magnitude.

There were no corpses discovered this morning so I'm almost sure that one or both of the Kribs were responsible for the deaths of the guppy and the Tetra.  My girls have started treating the poor little striped fish like criminals, taunting them and calling them 'murders' every time they pass the little tank.  I feel bad for the fish, they were only defending what they had claimed as their territory... and I guess that included the guppy and the tetra!  Hahahaha!  Okay, shut up Dorn!  (my girls are going to get me for that one!)

Dickidoo is going to spend tomorrow calling around to different engine shops to see about getting Big Red back up and running.  Needless to say I am ecstatic!  I've missed my truck sooooo much!  I will NEVER make fun of a guy for having an almost human relationship with his truck or car again!  Big Red was more than just a truck to me, Big Red was 'my way'.... my way to work, my way to the mountains, my way away from things that threatened to drive me nuts, and my way back home.  And soon, very soon she will get me on my way again!

I think someone had too much time on their hands when they decided that women should shave the legs and armpits...what a waste of time!  I had the same hairly leg problem, too.  I shaved this morning after DH made a comment about them.  I told him that animals have thicker fur in the winter and I wanted to see if it helped.  He thinks I am nuts!

Worse chore in the world.. shaving my legs/armpits.  Yet, I can't stand hairy legs so it must be done.  Hope you have a great first day back at work.
BTW, my car IS my friend he's name is whiteboy :)

LMAO! That is so funny...but I totally know what you mean....With spring and summer (yaaa!) Around the corner the weeds should not grow in as thick....with winter, noone see's the legs much...well, only my hubby but oh well, ha! So you don't have to shave as often but as soon as it warms up here. (CAN"T WAIT!) I will be better at keeping the shaved area's well groomed. - Jessica

Hey in winter time you need all the warmth you can grow...even in Florida!  It's a chore that we all have to do, unless you want to go European.....Sandi PS Hubby has a red truck (Dodge) it looks alot like yours and he is so attached to it.

Hey I think my truck is the twin to yours... Mine is male... I named him  KNE after the country singer Kenny Chesney.... I was tired of hearing the guys talking about their vehicles as females.. Just kinda made me mad... So I turned the tables on them.. My truck is male.. And true to form he acts just like most of the men in my life have STUBBORN!!!!  Your truck looks like a F-350, is that what it is?? Mine is a F-350 4X4 and while I love certain aspects of it.. I really hate the gasmileage.. I get a whopping whole 8 mpg... Can you believe that??

I've been there with the whole shaving problems also... My new boyfriend likes certain areas shaved that I have never shaved before!  I have gotten better...lol.. I now only have to yelp and shout "OUCH" about once per shaving.. Who in their right mind ever thought up the idea that we should shave off the hair that we grow naturally??? Not my idea of fun...

I don't know if anyone is interested in adopting an active duty soldier/military member?? I belong to a group called My Soldier.. This group adopts our men and women overseas to people back here who would like to write and send packages to the fighting men and women of this great country tha we live in... Here is the link.. it is underlined in red...
