Things I Did...

...besides blogging.

Since I've pretty much been dead to the blogging world the last two weeks, here's what I've been doing besides blogging:

  ~  Started reading If I Stay.  Oh my gosh, this book started off with a bang.  I mean, I knew some of the story but didn't think that it would hit right away.  Wow.  I'm really enjoying it & almost done.

  ~  Work has been absolutely insane!  Typically, things slow down for us in December & then pick back up in January.  That was not the case this year.  It's been CRAZY!

  ~  Cheering on the Packers.  GO PACK GO!

  ~  Wrapping gifts for hours.  No jokes, hours.  The day I sat down & did the most wrapping, I was able to watch every single Christmas themed episode of Friends & still have a couple left to wrap.  Too much!

  ~  Had a pamper afternoon the day before Christmas Eve by getting a hot stone massage & then a manicure - gel polish is pretty damn cool...except for the whole removal process.

  ~  Went to Christmas Eve lunch at the in-law's & then hosted Christmas Eve for my family.

  ~  Tried not to murder Trouble for the trouble she's been getting into.  One would think that not being able to drive for over three weeks would get them to stop smoking pot, not this child!  Sigh.

  ~  Enjoyed my favorite gift - record player.  However, I have to find a different Thriller record cuz the one I have is all scratched.  :(

  ~  Saw some movies - the final Hobbit movie & Unbroken.

  ~  Won at the casino...lost at the casino.

  ~  Lost a childhood friend.

  ~  Spent lots of time with family & friends.

But now, I hope to be back to the world of the blogging & get back to reading your posts.  I've missed y'all.

    1. Thank you. It was quite a shock but after doing three tours overseas, he wasn't quite the same. He took his own life almost two weeks ago. :(

  2. I just started reading If I Stay! I'm loving it so far! I've read like 4-5 books within the past week or two. I'm on a roll!

    1. Damn, you are on a roll, girl! I wish I had the time to read that much! Maybe someday I will. Ha! :)

  3. That sounds like a busy week or two! But it also sounds fulfilling. ;)

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.
