I Am...

What I Am by Edie Brickell

I thought of this song when I first saw the title of Erin's blog posting - I Am.  Yes, Erin, I'm stealing another one from ya.  You are my favorite Blog Bandit victim, you know.  Ha!

I am excited that I have two baseball games to attend tonight & tomorrow.  Tonight with my mom, aunt & bestie.  Tomorrow night with my husband, cousin & her fiancee.

I keep hoping that at some point, that things will soak in to my hubby & eldest stepdaughter's brains which will able them to think.  Trouble has gotten better.  *knocks on wood*  However, the hubby wants me to do this co-parenting thing with him but doesn't include me in on things.

I wish I could have a cottage on a lake somewhere up north.  I would SO love to be setting on a dock right now with a cup of coffee & my book.

I sing all the time.  It's my favorite thing to do in my car - roll the windows down, turn up the music & sing.  I think I'm good...others may not agree.  Ha!

I dance horribly.  Well, again, I think that I have moves but the rest of the world may not think so.

I think that as soon as my ankle heals up, I'm gonna have to start running or walking or something cuz my pants are getting a little snug & I don't want to buy new pants.  I happen to like the pants I have.  Thank you.

I really want Ashley to come up here for a visit around the 4th of July.  I miss her.  Ashley, get your Kentucky bum up here for some Polito's & some good Wisconsin cheese/beer!

I need a vacation far, far away.

I should really look into getting a new Kindle.  I love the one I have but I've had it for a couple of years now & she's starting to get pretty slow & freezing up at some points.  :(

I can walk to & from work, if I wanted to but that would not work well as I like to leave the house at about 7:58 & I would not make it to work in time if I walked.  Tee hee!

I like you.  I do, really...well, maybe not really cuz there could be a serial killer reading this & I would not like a serial killer...unless you've been confused with a cereal killer then I would like you cuz I too like to kill cereal.  Ha!

I love Mountain Dew.  I don't care what anyone says, I love it.  It's the best thing in the word & makes me happy.  Plus, I like to use the argument that it's good for me cuz it has orange juice in it.  Don't believe me, look, it's the third ingredient.  No jokes.

I make delish soups - chicken wild rice, potato, chicken dumpling, chili.  I would like to try to make other soups like beef barley & taco but my family isn't real excited about those.  Plus, I have to wait for football season before making soup again.  Another reason I miss I ready for some football?  You're damn right I am!

I always prefer a quiet night at home over going out to the bars.  Once in a while to watch a sporting event is fun or beating the pants off my hubby in darts but I'd much rather go to a movie or stay in to watch a movie.  I'm a homebody, this is true.  I do, however, enjoy little gatherings around the fire, those are always nice.

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.
