I can't see your headlights......

I hate to start off with a rant.....but....I was driving into work this morning, as you know I start @ 5.30am...I am driving on East Lake Sammamish (a two lane no passing road) and I notice a van coming up behind me....E Lake Sammamish is a busy road during the day, but when I go to work there is no traffic....well this van comes up behind me going pretty fast....we pass an electronic speed limit sign....43 mph my speed in a 35mpg zone....so the van backs off a little finally realizing that I am going faster then the speed limit.....so he hangs back for 5 min and then the guy is right on my tail....Let me just tell you....I seriously can not see his headlights in my rear view.....he was that close to me....all it would have taken was 1 deer to run out in front of me (deer are common this time of year) for him to rear end me....so we are traveling along, mind you I am going 45mph now.....and he is still right behind me......again I can not see his headlights, I could have been towing the guy.....I come up behind a minivan and I keep my distance, the usual 2 sec behind...and the guy behind me is still on my tail....So I finally tap my breaks....and you would think he would back off....NOPE...he rode my tail all the way to the light...I almost wish a deer would have ran out....I would have liked to see his little vehicle crash into the back to the Suburban....I guarantee his van would have more damage then the Burb......I mean seriously is it that hard to leave 2 sec in between yourself and the vehicle in front of you...and if you are in that big of a hurry why don't you just pass instead of riding my tail and risk causing and accident.....I just can't tell you how annoyed I was.....ugh...enough about that...

So right now....The girls are napping and I mean actually sleeping...usually Kiara will sleep during nap time...but Mikiah will sit in her crib and read to herself, talk to herself, and sing.....Which reminds me of something I wanted to mention...I secretly think Mikiah can really read...She comes up with words and sentences that Shawn and have never used...its amazing some of the things she says....she also know so many brands and brand names....(some of which I am sure she learned from TV).....she is just so smart....and articulate...

Lila is helping me write this entry as she makes her famous "Gassy Face" every few minutes....I love how she can be sound asleep cry out, make her gassy face and then be back asleep within seconds......too cute........its been a sunny day here.....and a productive one for me....I am still trying to figure out where my energy is coming from today being that its Monday and all....I have already made dinner Sausage and Spinach Manicotti, just need to bake it.....packed up the Easter Decorations (I know Easter was weeks ago)......done some laundry.....and I am about to do some dishes......but for now I am taking a break blogging and feeding my TV addiction....2 Y&Rs down and 1 October Road to go.....

....I guess I spoke too soon....Kiara is asking for me to come upstairs.....well I better see what she wants....it does crack me up that she knows there is a baby monitor and that we can hear her downstairs......she doesn't yell when she needs something....she just speaks out like she is having a regular conversation with you.....its pretty funny...I have two smarty pants for sure....I love how intelligent kids are....Well I am out....enjoy your evening...

k - you handled the tail-gater well...i probably would have flipped him off in my rear view mirror - ha! that probably wouldn't have been the best, but nothing bugs me more is when someone is riding my tail!! :) have a good night!
