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 April.

My five this week are updates.  I've been a lil absent around here lately & I want to get my blogging & reading back in order.

  1.  My youngest is working at her first job & doing really well.  She works three days a week for eight hours so it's a nice balance between work & play for her.  With her first paycheck we let her spend it as she wanted with the agreement that checks after that would mostly be put into savings.  So, she & Paul went half & half on a new trampoline - a rectangular one that is good for gymnasts.  She is so proud of herself as am I.

  2.  My eldest, although a beautiful girl, has been having some issues & finding herself in trouble & distancing herself from us.  I wish there was something I could do to get her to get her head out of her ass but, like I told her, I can only give her the knowledge & it's her choice if she wants to use or not.  I miss the sweet girl she once was & I am hopeful that she'll find that girl in herself again & come back to us.

  3.  I am counting down until the new season of GoT.  I totally got sucked into watching the marathon on HBO last weekend & that's all I want to do is watch more & more of it.  It's so great & I love teaching our Tyrion about the one he was named after.  Tee hee!

  4.  Me, well, I go in for an MRI at the end of the month on my hip to make sure there is enough cartilage in my hip to do my surgery where they will cut my pelvis & rotate it to cover the joint like it should be.  I am really nervous about the surgery but I know that in a year from now, I'll be feeling much better.  The doctor said that I'll be down for a month & will hate him but in six months to a year, I'll be about 80% better than I am now.  That sounds pretty dang good to me!

  5.  So, I just started watching It's Always Sunny.  It's been on my list to watch for a bit but my friend, Christa, gave me the extra push to watch it asap &, oh my gosh, I am so glad she did.  It cracks me up!  All the characters are great but I just really love Charlie.  His voice itself cracks me up, he's so funny.  I really am enjoying it & all I did last night was watch multiple episodes.  Tee hee!

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…

Words of Wisdom Wednesday...

True frickin' dat!  The old phrase "think before you speak" comes to mind.  I know that sometimes emotions get the best of us & we don't think things through before we let words leave our lips.  Sometimes those words can be hurtful, embarrassing or lovable.  Lovable doesn't seem to be one that comes to mind, I'm sure, but I remember the first time that Goose told me that he loved me.  He didn't think it through & those three lil words came flying outta his mouth at a birthday party in an old friend's living room.  I could not believe it but those words were already out in the universe.

I doubt that Goose would change anything now but at the time, it scared him to say those words & he probably would have thought it through a little better but, in that case, I'm glad that he didn't.

However, I'm really trying to get the girls to think before they speak & I tell them that once words leave their lips, they may have it off thei…

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…
