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 although hard, being the bigger person prevails.  Sunshine has been having some issues with her mother responding to any messages or phone calls & I finally had enough & sent her a message just simply saying that she needs to respond to her daughter or Sunshine will eventually just give up on having a relationship with her.  Of course, she took it as an attack & sent me back a long message & one part got me:  "i am going to do what i have always done when my kids threw temper tantrums....walk away".  I cannot tell you how much I wanted to respond to just that sentence.  A lil background:  she's not been around enough to parent either of her daughters it's been Paul & his parents & then me.  I came into the girls' lives when Trouble was twelve & Sunshine was eight (they are now nineteen & fifteen) & I've been a more permanent fixture in their lives than their mother even including the many months that Trouble & I didn't talk.  She's never been a parent, she has not raised these girls so it's just so easy for her to "walk away".  However, I did not sink to her level & it prevailed, Sunshine was happy that I said something to her mother & then she asked me last night if I would be her mom.  I told her that like Yondu said to Peter Quill/Starlord in Guardians of the Galaxy:  "he may be your father but I'll always be your daddy" except put in "mother" & "mommy".  She smiled & went on her way to bed.  Being the bigger person does pay off, everyone sees it & it's better for me & the girls so that's the way I'm gonna be...until Sunshine reaches the age of eighteen, then I'm gonna tell their mother off!  ;)

  I've learned...that even though I have the plan to go to bed early, it rarely happens.  I left my grandparents' early last night to get home to get into bed.  Well, I did this, that & the other thing & next thing I know, Paul is snoring beside me & it's 11:00 p.m.  Ugh!  Maybe tonight...but probably not as I'll be meeting up with my bestie, Kim, for supper & some shopping.  Tomorrow, perhaps?

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…
