Musical Monday/Weekend Update...

Musical Monday - Head Like a Hole by Nine Inch Nails.  I've been on a real 90's kick lately & on Sunday I was listening to some NIN & this song has just been stuck in my brain.  :)

Weekend Update - 

    Friday:  I started my weekend off with a trip to the grocery store where all good weekends begin.  Ha!  Then I got home, unloaded the groceries & then headed out to dinner with the hubby.

We enjoyed a drink at the bar before being seated.  We got a cheeseboard to start things off & then he got Surf & Turf Kabobs & I got a Chicken Caesar Sandwich.  Everything was delcious & I was so full that I didn't have room for a malt from a local ice cream place.  :(

We then went home to watch Now You See Me 2.  You can read my review here.  Then it was off to bed where I couldn't fall asleep because I kept playing in my head conversations to have with Trouble as she wanted to see me sometime during the weekend "to make things right".  In case you are new here, Trouble is my eighteen year old stepdaughter who after many problems with, we had to kick her out of the house last November.  Her & I had not spoken face-to-face since January & the last correspondence from her was a Facebook message on Valentine's Day telling me to stay out of her life.  So, yea, needless to say I was pretty anxious/nervous about how this would go.

    Saturday:  Paul & I got up & started our day with a trip to Walmart to pick up a few things - return some unders for him, get a shelf for me, a new Blu-Ray player for the bedroom & then some work pants for him.  After that, I came home to shower up & then headed out to my aunt & uncle's to watch the Badger game with my cousin, her husband & this cutie:

We were working on rolling over.  He would SO close but just wouldn't get there.  I told him that we were not going home until he did it...he didn't but we all went home anyway.  Tee hee!

    Sunday:  got up early (I couldn't sleep) & started my chores for the day.  I got my new shelf by our bed organized & looking pretty, went through some clothes & got rid of some, made Potato Soup, watched the Packer game & talked with Trouble.  To make a long story, short:  we cried, told each other we missed the other & I asked her if she was beginning to see the light.  She said that she was & that she had a full-time job & that she just wants to fix things.  It wasn't a long conversation but it was a start & that's what I told Paul.  It's not like her & I are gonna be going shopping or anything tomorrow but we can work towards that.  She has a lot of making up to do.  After she left, it was more football, some Jimmy Fallon, coloring & such before Fear the Walking Dead, reading & bed.

So, I guess a pretty decent weekend.  :)

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…

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…
