Musical Monday / Weekend Update...

Musical Monday:  Slip by Elliot Moss.

Weekend Update:

  Friday:  I got done with work, went home to pick up Sunshine & her friend, "AT", & took them to Noodles for supper.  I dropped "AT" off at her grandmother's, hit up Shopko with Sunshine to get her some goodies to fight off her cold, came home, we got into our jammies, watched two episodes of Grimm, then prepped the humidifier for her room (as I was doing this, she gave me a hug & thanked me for being so great & taking care of her when she was sick), gave her some NyQuil, watched one more episode of Grimm & then she went up to her room at about 9:00 to pass out while I got into bed to watch some TV & play on my Kindle until Paul got home.

  Saturday:  the hubby made me get up to have a good breakfast & since I had some time before heading to Sunshine's gymnastics meet, I made some rice bags, got ready & we hit the road.  Again, I thought she did well in all events (I'm still not sure exactly how they score stuff cuz a teammate of hers needed help on the bars from the coach & got a better score).  She had quite the cheering section - my coworker & her daughter, my mom, my grandparents & Paul's parents.  She was fine & happy until we took her out for dinner - she became quiet, cranky & rude.  So, when we dropped her back off to stay with her gymnastics friends, I was glad.  Then Paul & I hit the casino (again, I lost), came back home to watch The Night Before (my review can be found here) & then hit the sack.

  Sunday:  nothing too exciting, just the usual.  When Sunshine got home from her sleepover she was horribly crabby & irritable.  Paul & I are thinking that it's the stress of her schedule - school, dance, gymnastics & confirmation - mixed in with hormones but sweet baby Jesus, I had to lock myself in another room.  Teenage girls suck!  She later apologized & is worried because her actions are not all that unfamiliar - she sounded just like her sister last night.  She hates that, I hate that.  So, we'll be discussing the possibility of her talking to a counselor.  We'll see how things go after this week (her last week of gymnastics) to see if her attitude changes or not.  I told her that she's a better person than what she's been acting like lately so we'll see how things progress.  I then watched The Walking Dead - I know that I should be anxious about this but I cannot wait to meet Negan.  I hear that he's one BAMF but I just cannot wait!  Eeek!

So, how was your weekend?
Do anything fun & exciting? 


  1. Oh, sorry to hear she's having trouble. She seems like such a good kid. Hopefully everything will work out soon - maybe she's just going through a little phase or is overly exhausted.

    1. She really is a good kid & that's why it's so difficult for me to watch her when she's like that. I really just had to walk away & go sit in another room while her dad dealt with her. I'm gonna try to talk with her some more tonight & see what else she'll tell me.

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…

Weekending/Musical Monday…

I've decided to start linking up with Biana on reporting on activities of the weekend.  If you would like to join, hit her up!
So, on to my weekend...
Friday - the husband & I went out to dinner and for drinks with our friends, Ben & Christa.  & then headed back to our house for some games.  A nice quiet evening with some great people.
Saturday - my cousin, Jennifer, & I decided to take a last minute trip to Appleton for some shopping & such.  We had her youngest with her & he was perfect!  We had so much fun & while at Scheels, I educated him about Bucky Badger because he kept going over to the Wisconsin Badger stuff & by the end of our trip in that store, he was calling out "Bucky!"  My heart could not be prouder.

When we got back into town, Paul & I went out for a couple glasses of wine & then headed back home to relax & watch Baby Driver.  You can read my review here.

Sunday - typical Sunday, spent the morning hanging out in be…
