Thankful Thursday...

Hey you!  Yea, you, what are you thankful for today?  Here are a few things that I'm thankful for:

  1.  Hair appointments.  I deserve a little pampering so I'm going to get my hair did tonight - some fun & noticeable high/lowlights & a trim.  Awhoo hoo!

  2.  Jimmy John's.  I know that I've been thankful for them recently but I'm still thankful & even more so because I get to have that for my din-din tonight before ALL my running around.  Yippee!

  3.  Being hated upon.  Weird thing to be thankful for, huh?  Well, I figure that if your kids do not hate you for most of their teenage years, you're not doing your job as a parent.  I am now the Hitler to Paul's Nazi & you know what, whatever.  I take that as I'm the frickin' boss & that I should not be messed with as I will not tolerate it.  Trouble got a little reminder of that - she acted out on Monday & yesterday resulting in my taking away ALL her data & her Netflix - two things she loves the most.  Don't mess with Mother Mandie, she'll get ya!  Tee hee!


  1. Great things to be thankful for!!!

  2. I have no idea what Jimmy John's is but I sure do love hair appointments! Haha

    1. Jimmy John's is a sub shop. It's pretty delish & us folks in my town get excited when new things come into town cuz it's happens so rarely. Tee hee!

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli (I like the new button, by the way!) &/or Liz.

My five this week are five Christmas gifts that I got for Sunshine.
  1.  Adidas pants.  I had more thing to get her & she mentioned at her gymnastics meeting that she wanted a pair of these.  I got online & picked her up a pair ending my Christmas shopping for her.
  2.  Paper lanterns.  They were on sale one day at The Walmart & I couldn't resist getting them for her to hang in her bedroom.

  3.  A wax warmer & melts.  She has her bedroom upstairs & we don't allow candle burning up there were it cannot be watched.  Plus, with the mess a teenage girl makes, something is bound to catch on fire.  Anywho, so I got her this warmer and some melts that she can use to make things smell all nice & stuff.  :)

  4.  A Pink sweatshirt & matching socks.  I …

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that I got my Christmas cards all out last Friday & that people have already been receiving them!  Now, it's my turn to receive some cards to hang on the front door.  I love receiving them & looking at all the smiling faces & reading the fun "family letters" especially from my aunt, Nellie.  :)

I am thankful...that I got to have a nice evening with my mom & her boyfriend last night.  I had to drop off Sunshine's Christmas gift & pick up her pet carrier so I could take all three cats to the vet this morning so she fed me one of my favorite meals that I never get to have at home - tuna casserole.  & then when I got home, Jill was on her way over so I chatted with her, helped Sunshine with her outfit for tomorrow (she has to dress up as the gymnastics team has a meet this weekend) & then to bed to read & such.

I am thankful...for this coloring book that I got Trouble as part of her Christmas present.  I looked through it yes…

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli &/or April.

My five this week is ways to stay warm when it's frickin' freezin' in Central Wisconsin.

  1.  Drinking warm beverages - coffee, cocoa, tea.  Add some Rum Chata or Baileys for a lil extra warmth.  

  2.  Set yourself on fire...or sit really close to a fire &/or space heater.

  3.  Take a long hot bath maybe enjoy your warm beverage as like Olaf is doing.

  4.  Bundle up like Randy does in A Christmas Story - "I can't put my arms down!"

  5.  Just stay in your nice warm bed snuggled up with your cats & a good book or Netflix.
