Between the computer problems and the upcoming three-day-weekend, I am having serious motivational issues. Ugh...
I'm having one of those weeks where I would just much rather be outside riding than working. This is particularly bad, because I only have about 11 more business days to get the July issue together...and I haven't even started...
Anyways, here is a picture of Camri with some cute puppies...

Not A Good Way To Start The Day...

So, when I walked into the office today, I was greeted by not one, but two broken Macs. The Mac we check email on would not turn on. It made some noise, but that's about it. And the Mac we put the magazine together on had a disc drive that wouldn't shut. I guess I bumped it and jammed it up, or something.
To make matters worse, this is the month that we lose ten days to work on the magazine. It is May 20, and I have to have a new magazine ready to go by June 10. So, I guess I'll start the countdown at 14 business days to get July's issue together...and I'll start minus two computers. Lovely!
On a brighter side, we are headed down to Oklahoma for a mule showdeo on Saturday, and the forecast is beautiful, sunny weather. I haven't been able to ride that much because of all this ridiculous rain, but I think I'll manage.
Camri's pre-school graduation is tomorrow night. It is hard to believe that I just dropped her off at her very last day of pre-school, ever. It made me a little sad.

Thank you, Starbucks

Dear Starbucks,
As someone who is on a low-cal diet, I just wanted to thank you for your Caramel Frappuccino Light. Here is the description you have on your website (

"Sensible indulgence – chilled. This handcrafted coffee seems to break all the rules. A decadent blend of coffee, sweet caramel and ice, topped with a drizzle of caramel that shouts “Indulge yourself!” Yet, at just 130 calories and 1 gram of fat for a Tall (12 fl oz) serving, it’s a treat you can enjoy regularly."

Seriously. I had one of these last night, and it was the best thing ever. Now my only problem will be restraining myself from driving to you to buy one of these glasses of amazing-ness every day, as the closest one of you is a 45 minute drive and my budget is currently on a "diet" as well.

In closing, from the bottom of my frappe-deprived heart, thank you. You made my life thismuch better by existing.

A loyal Starbucks drinker,
