Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that Trouble & I are talking again.  She drives me nuts with some of her decisions but now that she's an adult & living on her own, it's on her & that takes a great deal of stress off me.  She was a hard kid to raise, I tried everything with her but I'm hopeful that she's beginning to see a little bit of light.  We do text/message about once a day, typically she's in search of some advice or knowledge that only I can provide...makes me wonder who she talked to during those months we didn't talk, her dad says that she probably just talked with her dumbass friends.

I am thankful...that I decided to take the full day off tomorrow rather than just a half day.  The hubby & I are venturing out of town to celebrate our upcoming wedding anniversary.

We'll be married three years on October 19th.  So, before we head off to Wisconsin Dells for the weekend, I'm gonna go get a ninety minute hot stone massage with my girl, Kathi.  I typically go around the 15th but my shoulders have been just killing me lately so I'll put her fingers to work.  Then home to shower, pack & hit the road for a much needed getaway.

I am thankful...that soon I'll be able to listen to music at work again.  Things are a-changin' & I hear that one of the things is that we'll be able to listen to music softly at our desks as long as it doesn't interfere with answering the phones & such.  Awhoo hoo!  I cannot tell you how excited I am to be able to listen to my music again!  :)


  1. Happy Anniversary!! We are celebrating our first wedding anniversary just 2 days before yours! Good for you for taking the day off! Enjoy the time together!

    1. Woot woot for October weddings! :) We had a great time, it was nice to just get away for a lil bit.

  2. When I worked in an office/cubicle setting, my music is what helped me make it through the day. I can't imagine not being able to listen to music.
    #1 made me happy, of course. It sounds like your step-daughter is following in the footsteps of mine :)
    Happy anniversary!

    1. I'm already getting ready for the day that they say we can listen to music, it will be a grand day. Ha, ha!

      These stepdaughters of ours...ugh. I'm glad that they both seem to be on the up & up. :)

  3. I've got some serious catching up to do with your blog! You have no idea how much I wish I could listen to music at work - days like today, when I'm on a one-way express to Boredsville, would be so much easier to bear! And happy anniversary, hope you have an amazing getaway! :)

    1. When I'm listening to music, I feel like I get more done. I don't know why, it just helps me concentrate, I guess.

      The anniversary getaway was very nice. :)

  4. Ooohhh. We love Wisconsin Dells. Where did you guys stay?

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…

Weekending/Musical Monday…

I've decided to start linking up with Biana on reporting on activities of the weekend.  If you would like to join, hit her up!
So, on to my weekend...
Friday - the husband & I went out to dinner and for drinks with our friends, Ben & Christa.  & then headed back to our house for some games.  A nice quiet evening with some great people.
Saturday - my cousin, Jennifer, & I decided to take a last minute trip to Appleton for some shopping & such.  We had her youngest with her & he was perfect!  We had so much fun & while at Scheels, I educated him about Bucky Badger because he kept going over to the Wisconsin Badger stuff & by the end of our trip in that store, he was calling out "Bucky!"  My heart could not be prouder.

When we got back into town, Paul & I went out for a couple glasses of wine & then headed back home to relax & watch Baby Driver.  You can read my review here.

Sunday - typical Sunday, spent the morning hanging out in be…
