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 thankful...that Sunshine has had some type of reality check & has been really working on getting her grades where they should be & thinking about getting her worker's permit so she can start applying for jobs.  I do think that it has to do with the fact that she'll be sixteen in about six months & I told her that she will not lay a finger on the car I have in storage for her until she has a job & grades that are "C's" or better.  If either of those don't happen, that car will remain in storage or will even get sold.  Yes, I am that type of parent.

  I am thankful...that Trouble will still shoot me a message asking for advice from time to time.  Apparently, she must have gotten into a fight with her boyfriend last night & sent me messages right away this morning on what she needs to do to keep this relationship going.  Obviously, I told her that every couple fights but it's how you deal with it that will make or break the relationship.  I told her that yelling/screaming/texting doesn't take care of things, talking does & that if they are not in a good place to actually talk, they need to take a breather & cool down.  We'll see if she will take my advice, I'm always good for dishing it out & her not taking it but I know that I've done my part, she needs to do hers.

So, what are some things that 
YOU'RE thankful for?


  1. Oh man, you're a tough parent! My mom was tough on me too though, so I get it. Her tactic of choice was cutting off my cell phone at will (even when I was in college, until I finally got my own account)! When I lived with her like in high school, her punishment of choice physically taking the landline phone out and away and put in her her room (this was pre-cell phone days)!

    That's sweet that Trouble still asks for advice. I still ask my mom for advice too, but my questions are more of the job/work-related variety :)

    So excited to hear about you Vegas trip, I'm going for my birthday in December! I'm not a big gambler, but I really want to see the shows, especially Cirque du Soleile's "O" and of course Britney! Not sure about the 2nd one either... fingers crossed! ;)

    1. My mom was tough on me too & I'm thankful that she was or I wouldn't have become as independent as I did. I worked my ass off, had nice things, did fun stuff, had a pet & bought my first house when I was twenty-two years old. I want Sunshine to be able to do the same (her sister is a lost cause - ha!).

      "O" is amazing! I saw that the last time I was in Vegas & I would totally see it again! Anything by Cirque is pretty dang awesome. :)

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…
