Musical Monday / Weekend Update...

Happy Christmas (War is Over) by John Lennon

I've now decided that every Musical Monday from here to Christmas will be a Christmas tune & the best way for me to start is with my favorite Christmas song.  Anything by John Lennon is always high on my "Like List".  :)

This weekend was probably more work than anything else.  I had a five day weekend & it frickin' flew they always do.  Wednesday, Paul got me up early & we cleaned the computer room, I ran some errands & then baked in the afternoon.  Paul took Sunshine to her mother that night while I stayed home to finish up my duties & then relax in front of the DVR.

My prep area - Thanksgiving episodes of Friends playing on the Kindle.

Thursday, Paul & I slept in a bit, had some breakfast, watched American Ultra (my review is here), I finished up what I needed to bring for Thanksgiving dinner with the family, got showered & headed out.

What I brought.

Also, what I brought - tee hee!

We then came home to watch the Packers/Bears game & the only thing I'll talk about from that game is watching the number 4 being added to the Ring of Fame at Lambeau.  I'm not a fan of Brett Favre's as I'm still bitter in his departure from the Packers but I do respect what he did for us.

Friday, Paul got me up early again to clean the basement.  We went out to Home Depot to pick up some shelving & some bins & got to work.  It took quite a long time but we got 'er done & it looks great!  Everything is organized & in bins - no more cardboard boxes to be seen...except for ones that we use to wrap gifts.  Ha!  We then went out for lunch, watched Cinderella (my review is here) & then Paul went out for a friend's birthday while I turned on Christmas Vacation & put up my Winter/Christmas decorations.

Saturday, we actually played a little bit - we went out to the casino where I won $10 (yippee), did a little Christmas shopping, watched the Badger game at bar, had a delicious supper at Amber Grill, hit up a friend's bar & then went home to watch Trainwreck (my review is here).

Yesterday, we did some more organizing & this time, it was the kitchen cabinets & drawers.  We'll see how long they stay in the condition they are in right now.  Did my other usual Sunday chores, took a bath, read my book, watched The Walking Dead & hit the sack early.

What a weekend.  Eeek!


  1. and now that song is in my head. thanks! :]

    that packers game. dear. god. they better start winning.

    1. Hey, it's a good song to have in your head, I think. :)

      They NEED to start winning. This was supposed to be the easy part of the schedule. They just look terrible all around & it hurts SO bad. :(

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…
