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?

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…

$10 at Target...

Yea, I was able to get to Target & get some goodies so I could link-up with one of my favorites!  Awhoo hoo!  If you wanna join in, visit Liz or any of the other hosts to linkup.  :)

Here is my haul:

Sunshine complained the other night that she needed more socks so I picked her up some.

I had to hit the clearance Easter stuff & picked these up for Paul.  He loves sour stuff so thought they would be right up his alley.  :)

I picked these up for myself.  I love them SO much & since I didn't make myself an Easter bag I figured I would grab these when they were 50% off.  Yum!

My grand total:  $10.96 Almost a dollar over but that's okay, I got some needed things.
