Tuesday Talk / 10 On Tuesday...

It's that time to do some linkin' up for some Tuesday Talk / 10 on Tuesday.  You wanna join in?  Well, of course you do!  Head on over to visit Jessica at Sweet Little Ones & Karli over at Sept. Farm.

This week:  Ten Reasons I'm Currently Broke.

  1.  New Vehicle.  I had to purchase some goodies for it - window visors, new way to charge/play my music, etc.  I haven't even gotten new decals on it yet but those will be happening.

  2.  Old Vehicle.  I had to take her & get her washed up & the oil changed before putting her in storage for the next year (we're saving the Cobalt for Sunshine - hopefully she'll have a job & good grades to be able to have it).

  3.  Leonardo.  I had to go buy The Revenant last week cuz it's so good.  Plus, my hubby loves Leonardo & I don't want him to miss having this movie that finally won his boy an Oscar.

  4.  Communions/Confirmations.  It seems that this is all we're doing now - "K" had her First Communion on the 17th & "G" had his Confirmation this past Sunday.  So, gifts had to be bought & such.

  5.  House Projects.  I still have my house that I bought when I was twenty-two & my brother & his girlfriend are renting it.  Some projects have been done so I pay for the materials & they do the work.  I sometimes help.  But it seems that there is always something to do.  Next, new interior doors.

  6.  Vacation.  I'm still trying to recover from vacation.  I tapped my savings account when I bought us tickets to Sea World & now I have to try to replenish it.

  7.  Harry Potter.  I have decided that since I enjoy reading the books along with the movie scores, I've bought the first three soundtracks in the last month.  But I really enjoy the music & I think that I'll get my money's worth out of them.

  8.  Movie Treats.  I went to the movies last night & when I go with my friend, Courtney, she pays for the tickets & I get the treats.  Well, I saw that they had pretzel bites & I had to have them.  Well, after everything was said & done, I spent over $20 on treats.  Eeek!

  9.  New Vehicle...Again.  Because I am so excited about my new vehicle, I tend to find reasons to just drive.  I pretty much just drove around on Friday night wasting gas.  Probably not smart but it's what I wanted to do at the time.

  10.  Bills.  I have too many bills & I don't like it.  I got rid of one credit card just to have to replace it with another when we were afraid of what the vet bills would be when Chandler was sick.  It was still more than $300 but now I have another damn bill to pay.  Ugh.  Credit cards are the devil!


  1. I will be adding new vehicle to the reasons I am broke soon too! It sounds great that you love it so much that you just want to drive it around though!

    1. Getting a new vehicle is always fun...until that first payment comes around. Ha, ha!

  2. I can totally relate to this post. I always have a reason I'm broke. Currently, it's graduation gifts.

    1. I'm sure that'll start soon as well. I've already gotten one graduation party invite.

  3. Paul is the one who loves Leo?! I know Mike resents my having a lingering crush on him from the Titanic days. I watched The Basketball Diaries recently (never saw it before) and then wrote a benign tweet pleasantly remembering my '90s crush on Leo. Mike flipped out about my "fawning all over" Leo on Twitter! Whatever; I cried and clapped when he finally won his Oscar!

    1. Oh yes, Leo is Paul's man crush & I'm okay with it. Ha! & you can tell Mike that you'll be safe from Leo, girls that are above the age of about 25 are not on Leo's radar, he likes 'em real young. Apparently, he's dating a nineteen year old, did you know that?!

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…
