September Goals...

There are a whole lot of people out there posting about their September goals.  Well, if you know me, you know that I like to steal blog ideas so I had to steal this one as well & it's my first one so I won't make my goals too high.

  1.  Mandie/Stepdaughter Dinner.  I want to take each girl out to dinner to connect & just have some one on one time. I think that's very important as they tend to open up a little more & talk with me about what's going on.

  2.  Donate.  I have tons of things to take to Goodwill, the humane society & some books to get into the "free library".  I need to take care of that stuff asap.

  3.  Craft Project.  I told my mom that I would make her a half corkboard half blackboard for her wall.  I got the corkboard but I still have to get my butt to the local Goodwill to pick up a frame to work with...& probably a trip to Home Depot for some more chalkboard spray paint.  :)

  4.  Reading.  I need to finish Allegiant & then start Dr. Sleep...unless I should re-read The Shining first.  Any suggestions out there on if I should or not?

  5.  Workout.  With summer being so crazy, the family & I have neglected our YMCA membership so we need to get back out there to do some working out.  I'd like to get signed up for a class as well.

  6.  Night Cleaning.  With the girls back in school, I'd like to keep up with a quick cleanup of the house before bed - dishes, counters wiped down, girls' vitatmins/pills out & ready for them along with anything else for school, clothes put out for the next day, etc.

  7.  TV/Movie Night With Goose.  Try to have a night at least once a month where I sit down with just Goose to view one of our TV shows &/or a movie.

  8.  Mailing.  Do a handwritten card or letter to a family member or friend at least once a week.  Everyone loves to see a little something in their mailbox that isn't a bill or junk mail.

  9.  Jimmy Fallon Time.  I want to get back into watching his show during lunch again.  I love him & his show so it's time to start viewing him again especially now that Chelsea Lately has left me.

  10.  New Music Tuesday.  Be sure to listen to the new music dropped every Tuesday & update my "Starred" playlist on Spotify.

I think that those things are lets see how I do!  :)


  1. Awesome list!! We just donated a bunch of stuff too and it seriously felt SO good to get it out of the house! :) I'm trying to get a cleaning routine down too-- good luck!

    1. Thanks, lovely lady! I'm sure that I can knock out at least half of this list, I think. :)

  2. Night cleaning sux while you're doing it but it feels good to wake up to a clean, organized place - that's for sure!

    1. True dat! I love going to bed and seeing how clean the kitchen can be for a few short hours. :)

  3. What a great list! I love all your ideas! I especially love the dinner date one on one with your step daughters. They will so love it. What special time with you guys!

    1. I've done that a couple of times & I really enjoy that time with them. They really open up & talk about this & that, good or bad. I think that they like it too. :)

  4. You can do all of the above! I love you pretty lady! :)

    1. I thought they were all pretty, time will only tell if I can do them all. Ha!

      I love you too! :)

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…

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…

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli &/orApril.

My five this week are five of my latest funnies pinned on Pinterest.  Lately, work has been a lil difficult & I need something to make me smile on this Friday morning.  So, here we go:

So, are there any posts that have been giving you a giggle lately?  If so, please share.
Have a great weekend, yall!
