I'm so sick of the phrase "soccer mom", I could just hit someone. It's come to signify parents who drive suburbans and have no clue other than where they need to drag their kid/carpool off to next.

The reason that this makes me so mad is twofold. This term is used to justify some rather appalling behavior, and my Mom was a soccer mom way before they used the term. How can they make the soccer community culpable for these acts? What about basketball or baseball? I've found that the soccer community is one of the most active and thoughtful organizations out there. They bring a sense of community and caring.

I guess I've just never seen bad behavior at a soccer game like I have at Little League...

My kitties have a new toy that they adore. It's a fur blob attached to a piece of elastic that hangs from the molding around a door jamb. I can tell they love it because of the romping sounds from upstairs.

Proactive me!

I just called Excell about one of the jobs they're advertising and actually talked to the guy doing the interviewing. He's going to take a look at my resume (which hadn't gone through yet) and call me back!

It doesn't take much to make me happy today.
