Thankful Thursday...


I'm thankful that lil Miss Sunshine is wanting to be so involved in things - dance & gymnastics.  I'm just afraid that she's going to take too much on.  I told her that she should concentrate on one or the other & she's currently doing dance.  We currently have her signed up for Jazz & Musical Theater & she's thinking that she would like to try to get into Pointe.  I spoke with her instructor & it was suggest that she join Ballet 4 & see how the ankles hold up & then possibly be pushed up to Pointe.  Also, she'll have a head start if we get her signed up for the week of Dance Intensive where they do every kind of dance plus a Pilates session for one week from 9:00 to 5:00.  Paul & I are discussing that especially since it's $300 to enroll her.  If we could get her mother to pay half of it, then it would be doable.  So, we'll see.

I'm thankful that Trouble finally got a job.  The work permit was handed in yesterday & they will contact her with information about her first day.  She'll be working at a local pizza joint as a dishwasher/cook.  It'll be really good for her to have a job.  I told her that she needs to get the job, keep the job & start saving some money & then we'll talk about her possibly buying my car (& me getting a new one - woot!).  I've had to make it real clear to her that no job equals no car.  So, she's gotta work which is something she doesn't do much of.

I'm thankful that my husband keeps me around even though I'm a complete bitch.  I'm trying to get better with my crankiness & as long as he & I are in discussion mode about the girls, we're good.  I just don't know why he's with me sometimes but I'm thankful that he is cuz I do love him...even though he thinks that I'm trying to be Susan Sarandon to our local baseball team (you can read about that here - ha!).

What are YOU thankful for on this Thursday?

  1. YES I think a job is definitely a good idea for Trouble to have. And how awesome that Sunshine is taking dance so serious (even though it's expensive - I was a gymnast I totally remember).

    1. Oh yea, Sunshine's activities sure aren't cheap but her mother agreed to pitch for half so we got her enrolled in the dance intensive.

      Oh, Trouble...she needs more than a job most days but it's a start at least.

Happy 34th Birthday To Me...

Since tomorrow is my 34th birthday, I decided in celebration of it, I should list 34 facts about me.  So, here we go:

1.  For lunch today, I had a Big Grab bag of Funyuns, a bottle of Dew & some mini-Snickers.  I'm all about my health today, it seems.  :|

2.  I bought my first pair of leggings today since I was about 12.  They are for working out & they were on clearance.

3.  Speaking of leggings, I so badly want the tattoo version of them.  You know how the complete coverage of the arm in tattoos is called a "sleeve", I started calling the complete coverage of the leg in tattoos a "legging".  Ha!

4.  I've seen every episode of Friends at least ten times.  Paul will turn it on when it's on TV & test me on what episode it is...I'm rarely wrong.

5.  I really, really, really want to go back to Vegas real soon.  I'm almost half-tempted to ask Paul if we can go there for our second anniversary.

6.  I pretty much have tiny panic attacks on a da…

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 toApril to do so.  :) My five this week are things I am most excited about in the new Fantastic Beasts movie.  In case you didn't see the preview of it, here is one & this is one that I did not see until today:

  1.  Seeing more of Johnny Depp as Grindelwald.  Now, if you are new to these parts, I have been "forced" to be a fan of Johnny Depp as my mom is in love with him & told me that he's my dad.  Ha!  So, whenever I see him I always say to myself "hi, Dad!"  Ha!  Plus, it helps that he's an amazing actor.  I am so excited to see how he plays this character, I know that it will be fantastic!

  2.  Jacob Kowalski.  Oh my gosh, do I love this character!  Dan Fogler plays him so wonderfully.  He is just so likable &a…
