ambulance – how do you say it?





I say AMBulance. Always have. Whenever I hear someone saying ambuLANCE, it sounds really strange to my ears.

I heard two people talking today & it took me a minute to figure out what they were talking about because they were saying ambuLANCE and it sounded so foreign to me.


iPod lineup

The Dave Ramsey show always winds up playing first – whether it’s first, last or in the middle of the podcast lineup on my iPod.

I just noticed this about a week ago & now I test it each day to see if it keeps happening.

It does.

basketball game, music program & asthma

Son’s team did not win their game today – it was their first loss and the boys were really disappointed. They lost by 12 points. Son played really well and was a good sport. I’m proud of him.

Youngest daughter’s music program was tonight. She had a solo and did really well. She’s been singing/chanting her part for ages & finally got a chance to perform. She loves to be in front of an audience & just glows when it’s her turn to speak or sing. Her voice didn’t waver, she smiled & seemed happy and relaxed.

Oldest daughter had to see the doctor yesterday for her asthma. It’s been years since her breathing was so poor. The doctor switched her to a different medicine and she’s feeling better today, although not quite normal, still.

‘ello Beastie!

Guess which movie is now at the local discount movie theatre?
Dead Man’s Chest

Guess who went to see it tonight (again)?
Me & the kids!

Have you seen

the Johnny Cash video that premiered today?

These are a few of my favorite parts of the video (not Johnny Cash, by the way):

an example

When I email back & forth with friends, I think nothing of starting an email like a conversation, no salutation, no closing line, just a conversation – but that’s with friends. In a business setting, I guess I’m just old-fashioned. I cannot imagine using chatspeak when emailing a business associate.

Here’s an example of the casual business emails that drive me nuts.

Hi {name},

Do we have the option of signing up for the Roth 401K instead of the
traditional 401K? If it’s an option for us, I’d like information
regarding the plan.
