Giving Thanks – Days 3, 4, 5, & 6

I’m not really one that does a lot of blogging on the weekend.  I am in front of a computer at least 8 hours a day M-F, so when the weekend comes, I tend to venture from the computer unless it’s to check my facebook or something quick.  So today I am playing catch-up on my thanks and I’m gonna pack it today 🙂

**I am thankful for having Saturday off and for actually going to my appt with the Director of the YMCA.  She was going to give my info to one of the trainers and have the trainer call me to schedule a time to get together.
**I am thankful for the wonderful weather we had this weekend, I was able to turn the radio up, roll down the windows and let the wind have it’s way with my hair.
**I was thankful for the awesome Sat afternoon I had with my sweetie. It was nice to have the day together to do whatever we wanted.  Some over-due hanky-panky (sorry mom), lots of cuddling, some movie watching, some shopping, and all-around great day.
**I so did not want to get up on Sunday and go to a part time job that I don’t even need… so I asked Chris if I could quit and he said of course and that was all I needed to nuzzle myself back into my pillow and off to dream land – I am thankful for the okay from my babe to quit.  I feel somewhat guilty about not calling in and not answering the phone when they called or calling them back after they left a message.
**I am thankful for my awesome doctor that I have had for nearly 13 years and for putting up with my manic self at times.  I had a 4 week follow up with her today to see how the diet pill she put me on is doing.  I told her I didn’t feel like I had lost anything, but I could sure feel the difference in my energy.  She said I had lost 4.5 lbs.  Well there you go… could be better, I want to be a bigger loser than that… So she added the 2nd diet pill and we are going to see how the 2 working together will do… should work great since I am going to see the trainer and get back into my water aerobics classes.  Excited for the next check up in 4 weeks.
**I am thankful for awesome music out these days that just totally gets me through long days at work.
**I’m thankful for the awesome shows out right now like The Walking Dead, Revenge, Scandal, American Horror Story.
**I am thankful for living in a country that allows you the ability to speak your mind and vote for your leaders.  Your voice matters and you should always remember that !

I hope you all have an awesome Tuesday !


TMI plus a little more

So I am fully aware that I have been neglecting my blog as of late and I spank my own hand for that.  I could probably use a good spanking anyway.

I last left off with info on my ex-hubby getting in contact with me and yadda yadda.  Well we have emailed back a forth a couple of times. Nothing big really. Just hellos, how are you doing kinda stuff.  He finally posted a new photo of himself on his facebook yesterday and although the grey has taken him over, he still looks pretty handsome. He definitely looks like the man I once fell in love with and married.  It was good to see his face even if online only.  Well, I haven’t been paying to much mind to his emails as of late and I don’t really see myself checking constantly to see if he’s written again or not.  So I am thinking the anticipation and excitement I was originally feeling was just new attention. It gave me a little bit of butterflies, but didn’t do much else for me.  So now that it’s faded, I have my mind straight.  I cut my hair last week and so last night I posted a new photo with my haircut.  Well what do you know this morning I rec’d a comment from the Ex-hub and all it said was WOW !!!!  Gotta admit it put a smile on my face to see that he still found me hot.  Not that I was worried about that or anything.  Still a good feeling.  Anyway on to other news…

I think I mentioned Chris and I getting a truck, it’s great to have 2 vehicles now and not have to be carpooling. I don’t mind the car pooling but sometimes it can be a major pain in the butt.  Now we don’t have to worry about that.  We bought the truck from my sister so we know where it’s been and what it’s been used for.  Chris had his mechanic look it over, we needed a couple of new wires, spark plugs and a license plate light… and that’s it.  It’s a gas guzzler, so I use it most often because my commute to work is less than 10 min for the most part, so that helps save on the gas.

This past weekend Chris and I got up early to go hit up some garage sales before I had to go to work. We had great luck and found some awesome pieces.  We bought to solid wood cabinets one that has a lock on it and I am so excited to do a Pinterest project on them.  I also picked up some material and some things for some other holiday crafts I am anxious to do.  So I’m excited to decide what exactly I want to do and get started on it.

Now to the TMI – I was talking with a friend who was waiting in the airport to catch a flight and he was telling me about the people watching and the conversations he overheard while sitting there.  There was one he told me about yesterday that I couldn’t help but share.  (I got the okay from him to share)  Here is the following conversation he over heard from a women sitting near him.

TV UPDATE :  I am so loving that Revenge, Sons of Anarchy, and Scandal are back on again. Can’t get enough of these shows.  I am also liking the new ones such as The Mob Doctor, Mindy Project, 666 Park Ave, Elementary, and Revolution.  I’m excited for the return of Walking Dead and American Horror Story.  Thank goodness for DVR, to help me keep up with some of my favorites.  What’s on your gotta see list?

When she first sat down by me she made a shopping list, the first 6 items.

Zip Lock Bags
KY 1 regular, 1 intense
Diet Coke

Then on the phone she was saying  that she had to pee so bad when she got to her hotel room. That she peed in the bathtub.  She was wear panty hose, and did have time to pull them down so she got in the bath tub, lifted up her skirt and just peed through her hose, then threw then away.  Lol

I will have more in a minute, she just took another call.

My response was as follows – –

OMG, that’s gross and how stupid is she to be repeating that out loud.  Hope she is not on your flight she might pee in the seat next to you.  You might suggest she hit up the restroom before boarding the plane.  That’s hilarious. 

I hope you guys got a laugh out of that too !!

Well here’s hoping you all have a Happy Hump Day !
