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 thankful...that Sunshine has had some type of reality check & has been really working on getting her grades where they should be & thinking about getting her worker's permit so she can start applying for jobs.  I do think that it has to do with the fact that she'll be sixteen in about six months & I told her that she will not lay a finger on the car I have in storage for her until she has a job & grades that are "C's" or better.  If either of those don't happen, that car will remain in storage or will even get sold.  Yes, I am that type of parent.

  I am thankful...that Trouble will still shoot me a message asking for advice from time to time.  Apparently, she must have gotten into a fight with her boyfriend last night & sent me messages right away this morning on what she needs to do to keep this relationship going.  Obviously, I told her that every couple fights but it's how you deal with it that will make or break the relationship.  I told her that yelling/screaming/texting doesn't take care of things, talking does & that if they are not in a good place to actually talk, they need to take a breather & cool down.  We'll see if she will take my advice, I'm always good for dishing it out & her not taking it but I know that I've done my part, she needs to do hers.

So, what are some things that 
YOU'RE thankful for?


  1. Oh man, you're a tough parent! My mom was tough on me too though, so I get it. Her tactic of choice was cutting off my cell phone at will (even when I was in college, until I finally got my own account)! When I lived with her like in high school, her punishment of choice physically taking the landline phone out and away and put in her her room (this was pre-cell phone days)!

    That's sweet that Trouble still asks for advice. I still ask my mom for advice too, but my questions are more of the job/work-related variety :)

    So excited to hear about you Vegas trip, I'm going for my birthday in December! I'm not a big gambler, but I really want to see the shows, especially Cirque du Soleile's "O" and of course Britney! Not sure about the 2nd one either... fingers crossed! ;)

    1. My mom was tough on me too & I'm thankful that she was or I wouldn't have become as independent as I did. I worked my ass off, had nice things, did fun stuff, had a pet & bought my first house when I was twenty-two years old. I want Sunshine to be able to do the same (her sister is a lost cause - ha!).

      "O" is amazing! I saw that the last time I was in Vegas & I would totally see it again! Anything by Cirque is pretty dang awesome. :)

  2. Old school Nintendo is my favorite! And good for you for staying strong with the good grades. Grades and getting your life together comes first! You have to earn a car or other luxuries!

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.
