Musical Monday / Weekend Update...

Happy Christmas (War is Over) by John Lennon

I've now decided that every Musical Monday from here to Christmas will be a Christmas tune & the best way for me to start is with my favorite Christmas song.  Anything by John Lennon is always high on my "Like List".  :)

This weekend was probably more work than anything else.  I had a five day weekend & it frickin' flew they always do.  Wednesday, Paul got me up early & we cleaned the computer room, I ran some errands & then baked in the afternoon.  Paul took Sunshine to her mother that night while I stayed home to finish up my duties & then relax in front of the DVR.

My prep area - Thanksgiving episodes of Friends playing on the Kindle.

Thursday, Paul & I slept in a bit, had some breakfast, watched American Ultra (my review is here), I finished up what I needed to bring for Thanksgiving dinner with the family, got showered & headed out.

What I brought.

Also, what I brought - tee hee!

We then came home to watch the Packers/Bears game & the only thing I'll talk about from that game is watching the number 4 being added to the Ring of Fame at Lambeau.  I'm not a fan of Brett Favre's as I'm still bitter in his departure from the Packers but I do respect what he did for us.

Friday, Paul got me up early again to clean the basement.  We went out to Home Depot to pick up some shelving & some bins & got to work.  It took quite a long time but we got 'er done & it looks great!  Everything is organized & in bins - no more cardboard boxes to be seen...except for ones that we use to wrap gifts.  Ha!  We then went out for lunch, watched Cinderella (my review is here) & then Paul went out for a friend's birthday while I turned on Christmas Vacation & put up my Winter/Christmas decorations.

Saturday, we actually played a little bit - we went out to the casino where I won $10 (yippee), did a little Christmas shopping, watched the Badger game at bar, had a delicious supper at Amber Grill, hit up a friend's bar & then went home to watch Trainwreck (my review is here).

Yesterday, we did some more organizing & this time, it was the kitchen cabinets & drawers.  We'll see how long they stay in the condition they are in right now.  Did my other usual Sunday chores, took a bath, read my book, watched The Walking Dead & hit the sack early.

What a weekend.  Eeek!


  1. and now that song is in my head. thanks! :]

    that packers game. dear. god. they better start winning.

    1. Hey, it's a good song to have in your head, I think. :)

      They NEED to start winning. This was supposed to be the easy part of the schedule. They just look terrible all around & it hurts SO bad. :(

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…

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…
