Thankful Thursday...

Another Thursday?!  What the Hell?!  Wasn't it just Thursday?!  Gee whiz!  Time sure does fly.

Anywho, here are the things that this gal is thankful for this week:

  1.  Trouble turning 17.  We are 364 days away from her being an adult who can move out!  Ha, ha!  All kidding aside, this year has been overly tough on our family with how Trouble has decided to act.  I don't know if she's seen the light or her boyfriend is making a difference or what but things have been better.  They aren't great but they are better & I'm SO thankful for that.

The very first picture I ever took of Trouble - she was 12.

The latest picture I look of her with her birthday gift (a long-board).

  2.  Northern Invasion.  Let me start off by saying that I've never been to a music fest before, I've been to plenty of concerts but never a fest.  So, I am pretty dang excited about hitting up Northern Invasion on Saturday.  It really crept up on me so quickly that I didn't even get a chance to make a Northern Invasion playlist on Spotify.  Ugh!  Out of all the bands (you can find the lineup here), I'm most excited to see The Pretty Reckless.  So, I'll be at that stage to get a good viewing area asap.  Ha!  I know lots of folks that will be heading there so that's going to make it even more fun.  Now, I just have to decide what to wear.  :\

  3.  Studying with Sunshine.  Last night after Trouble's birthday celebration, Sunshine had to study for a Social Studies test & she asked me to study with her because I "make it more fun".  Really, I make studying fun?  Dang!  We went through the flashcards once to refresh both our memories, then another time with her answering, she then worked on some other homework & before she went to bed, we hit the flashcards one more time.  I'm hopeful that she'll do well on her test.  *crosses fingers*

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…

Tuesday Talk...

You wanna talk about something today?  Well, linkup with some fabulous girls for some Tuesday Talk - Jessicaor any of the other hosts.  :)

The only thing I can think about talking about is food, breakfast food to be exact.  I want to fill up on some delish carbs in the form of hash browns, toast, French toast & a sausage patty (just to mix it up a bit).  I want to be sitting at a cute lil diner chomping away...but sadly, I am not, I am at work instead.  Boo!

I am just thinking about all the things I would rather be doing instead of work, like, that in six weeks, the hubby & I will be on our way to Vegas.  The closer we get the more excited I get to be away for a week straight...I may never come back.  Maybe I'll become a cocktail waitress & leave again.  That would be the bestest thing ever...okay, maybe not the bestest but it would be pretty dang cool.

Since this post is just all over the place, I might as well talk about the fact that it's Valentine's Day.  I…

It's Wednesday So That Means...

So, back in the day, there was a linkup about weekly lessons.  I really liked it but since it has crumbled & the linkup is no more.  :(  I really liked doing it so I'm going to continue doing it, join me!
I've Learned...that when Sunshine gets an attitude with me & I make her go to her room & rethink how she speaks to me, she comes down ten minutes later & is sweet as pie.  I even got three "I Love Yous" from her in a span of about thirty minutes.  Ha!  
I've Learned...that I need to make another attempt at the Grand Mac from McDonald's.  I tried to do it last week but did not finish it (I finished the fries & the apple pie though).  That was not good enough for my grandfather so I need to have another go at it so I think that since it's just me & Sunshine again tonight, we're gonna pick up McDonald's again & give it another shot.

I've Learned...that once the weather warms up, even if just for a lil bit, I think Spring…
