Current Mood: Chilling & Contemplative
Just taking it easy, if you call yelling at the TV easy……grin
WHO DAT!!! Saints are looking much better then it started when Cardinals did the 1st TD. Good going Saints! I would so love to be in New Orleans for a home game. I really love how the team and the city have come together.
Very cool! Colts have won. GO HORSE!!!
Sucks that Purdue lost their 3rd game in a row. =( What the hell?!? ggrrrr
I really should be doing our books and more of my online work. But sometimes you need days like this. Spent some time working on my own little projects. Really need to make a list of things that I should focus on. But even got more distracted then I planned, totally redid one of my blogs and it wasn’t planned at all….lol I haven’t gotten a thing done that I planned today (even this) and it is already 8pm….ggeeezz….I started this around 2pm…icks
Alright, what has been going on with me so far….good thing for twitter, really helps to share what is going on, because by the time I do an entry I have no idea….lol
Well as of 2/21 we will be doing the gym on a regular basis for 2yrs. For us, that is huge. I’m still getting people telling me how good I’ve done with my weight lose and workout. This week wasn’t the best of working out. I got the treadmill in and my abs, but no motivation for my weights…not good. So hope for a better week this time.
Last Saturday we drove up to Seattle, one of our very good friend was celebrating his birthday by having a get together at a funk show at the Tractor Tavern. We saw Olympic Sound Collective & Eldridge Gravy and The Court Supreme, the other band was Black Cherry Crush, but they didn’t have a link on the Tractor’s site. Holy cow, it has been years since we’ve seen a live act and that loud. Our ears were ringing all day Sunday….lol We had a blast…..we love visiting with our friends up there. We actually got up early enough Sunday to get on the road & made the expressway in Seattle before it closed to the southbound lane. That expressway is a big help on dealing with Seattle traffic…..I hate that part of I5….lol
We got home by 4pm, was crashed out by 11pm and you would think we would be fine at 8am for the gym…..well, it didn’t happen. When the alarm went off, I was so loopy and confused. When you wake up like that, means you need more sleep. So we crashed some more. For once, I didn’t feel guilty about missing the gym since it was needed. Just not happy that I’m 4miles under what I do in walking for the week. But I’ll be back to my norm next week. =)
We finally got a break in the winds, we’ll see how long it lasts. Getting a steady wind of 20-30mph with gusts up to 40/50mph on a regular basis can drive you batty. But we’ve has temps in the high 40s/low 50s this week. It has been very nice. =)
Hubby’s Jeep got egged by in November (that assholes) and we finally got it in and taken care of this week. Good thing we got full coverage and it was covered by comprehensive….nice bonus is that we don’t have a deductible. =) But now I need to take my Dakota in next week, it sometimes dies out when in idle, especially when in reverse…..probably the fuel injection.
The kitties are feisty as ever….grin They really do make us laugh and give us joy. Alexis is partial deaf and we think is going senior since she’ll cry out so loudly for no reason. When she wants my attention, she wants my attention. Drew can’t handle it when I go to bed and he isn’t there by my side. Sakura is as evil as ever…..loves to bite…grin Hubby so spoils her and doesn’t like to yell at her at all…..grin He brought a new toy mouse for them that squeaks when they impact it. Sakura is loving it big time, growling over it, carrying it around, throwing it in the air as she bats at it. Drew doesn’t seem to carry for it, but he doesn’t seem to play with the bigger toys much. He loves the really small toy mice.
Pretty much, I’ve just been doing my work and every day stuff. Nothing very exciting I’m afraid. =( But it keeps me busy. =)
Now for a service announcement, as you know Haiti is suffering…..every time I see a story on the news or online, I end up crying….I’m too soft when it comes to things like this.
Even if we aren’t there to help, we can send money to organizations that can do best work. Just make sure that you are giving to legit organizations and not scams. It is best to find ones that are reported on by news organizations or go to the State Department or White House site to find the best way to give. Just give what you can, as you have heard it has added up very fast.
