I Really Hate Mondays...

Can someone please remind me why I have to work?  I want to stay home.  I don't even have to be sleeping right now, if I could be cleaning or whatever, I'd be fine with that.  I just hate this whole work thing, it sucks.  I'd much rather be a "stay-at-home-mom".  I'm not saying that that's easier by ANY means but I just have so much to do outside of work that I never get anything done.  It sucks especially after a busy weekend.

So, I started out the weekend with Jill's birthday celebration.  We'll just say that Mandie was feeling pretty dang good by the end of the night.  Oh yea.  There was no throwing up but at one point, I came into the bar & leaned my head on Jill's husband's shoulder.  Ha!  We even went into "teenager mode" & took some selfies:

The birthday girl & I.

Sassy, Chelsie.

Gangsta Jill & Chelsie.

Badass Mandie & Chelsie.

Ha!  We had so much fun.  There were many, MANY more pictures but I cleaned a whole bunch out cuz we looked like fools.  Tee hee!

Saturday was another birthday celebration for my friend, Gladys.  We hit up a sand bar on the Wisconsin River & hung there until a storm came in.  Since we had children with us, we were pretty well, this girl was hungover from the night before.  Ha, ha!

FM hates the loud motor.  Ha!

Pretty lil IM.

Future love - C & IM.  <3

& then yesterday, I just did some housework, played a little Wii & rested.  I was pretty dang tired after the crazy weekend.

Oh, I almost forgot - I'm already in bed watching an episode of New Girl when I hear Goose yelling my name.  I get out to the living room & he's ducking as a bat is flying around.  Now, I used to be quite the "bat wrangler" at my old place so I snapped into that mode.  I told Goose to close all doors as I ran to get the broom.  It only took a couple of minutes, a few screams & one time hitting myself to get the bat outta the house.  

What...a...weekend.  :)


  1. WHAT there was a bat in your house?!?! That is insane... I mean I'm not particularly afraid of bats I don't think... but I would absolutely FREAK OUT if one was in my home! It's so nice that you guys got to go out and act like teenagers (haha) for your friend's birthday. Now that I'm a mom I feel like people expect me to be all grown and classy and have 2 glasses of wine and then be done buttttt that's just not my style! And you on the water with a hangover... that was me at the zoo on Sunday hahah

    1. Oh yea, bats don't bother me one bit. Now if it were a snake, I would be hauling ass! I HATE snakes!

      I typically do behave myself but I let loose & it was a lot of fun to do so. I'm usually more worried about getting home cuz my hubby doesn't quite know when to quit so I always have to drive but since we were so close to home, we walked so I didn't feel like I couldn't drink. It was nice. :)

  2. I have to agree, Mondays often steal all the joys of weekends. But, if you had a great weekend - like you clearly had - then you should just forget about those Monday blues.

    1. Monday blues have now been forgotten...however, it does help that it is Tuesday now. Tee hee! :)

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that tonight after work, I'm gonna pick up some din-din for my sister & I & then we're gonna play some old school Nintendo games on her projection screen.  Awhoo hoo!  I am so happy that my sister is back home!  :)

I am thankful...for Stan Lee.  I know that I've probably said it before but this guy is pretty dang amazing with the Marvel characters & stories that came to be from his mind.  I just wish that I had that kind of brain to think up all the crazy things/beings he does.

I am thankful...that in four weeks, I'll be in Las Vegas.  Just me & my hubby hopefully catching a few shows, winning some dough & having some good grub.  We'll for sure be seeing Love by Cirque & then I wanna get him tickets to either Cris Angel or Penn & Teller as a birthday gift.  I tried talking him into seeing Britney but he hasn't caved yet, I'm hoping that he will cuz if I get to see Britney, it would be amazing cuz I love her!

I am tha…

$10 at Target...

Yea, I was able to get to Target & get some goodies so I could link-up with one of my favorites!  Awhoo hoo!  If you wanna join in, visit Liz or any of the other hosts to linkup.  :)

Here is my haul:

Sunshine complained the other night that she needed more socks so I picked her up some.

I had to hit the clearance Easter stuff & picked these up for Paul.  He loves sour stuff so thought they would be right up his alley.  :)

I picked these up for myself.  I love them SO much & since I didn't make myself an Easter bag I figured I would grab these when they were 50% off.  Yum!

My grand total:  $10.96 Almost a dollar over but that's okay, I got some needed things.
