This is sometimes called getting old.

I’m finding this to be true in a lot of aspects of life. Getting older. Losing weight. Dealing with money. The way I react to people. The way I act in my relationships.

Happy Monday.

My mom and I were on the way to the St. Patrick’s Day Dash and got rear ended. Rear ended while stopped at stop light. In line with tons of other cars, stop and going for the past 15 minutes.

Thank you for paying attention, Mr. SUV driver. Just because the light is green doesn’t mean take your foot of the break and run into the car in front of you.

My neck and lumbar region ache a bit. I’m going to soak in Epsom salts when I’m done with this.  I made a call to my chiropractor. I’d like to see if  he can adjust me sometime before Tuesday, he isn’t in his office until then. Kevin has his personal number and said I could try that as well, but I understand its his day off.

This is the second 5k type thing we have missed. We missed the Jingle Bell 5k due to snow/icy stuff and it being 22°.

Random 3 day-ish weekend for me!

leave a comment »

Who doesn’t love a 3 day weekend? Especially when it falls on an actual weekend?

But on Thursday I was asked if I could work on Friday. Our beer guy is out with bronchitis. Um yeah, um wait… um, no! Um wait, I could but only from 6p-10p. (I was hoping that they’d say no due to the fact it was so late.) I sent my boss an email saying I would be able to work those hours due to having prior commitments during the day at 10:30a and at 4p.

Low and behold, I got a voice mail  saying it would be really awesome if I could work that shift and would I please call her back to verify ASAP. Blah. I get to do beer and wine stuff. I get to make sure it all looks full and pretty. Best of all, its Friday night and I can bullshit with a bunch of people about booze.

I still have Saturday and Sunday off. Saturday is full of nothing, maybe a nap or 2? Sunday, my mom and I are doing the St. Patrick’s Day Dash and I’m going to a private wine tasting at a fellow employee’s house. I don’t have to work on Monday until 3p. All in all, it should be a super weekend.

What a nice springy day… considering yesterday I woke up to 3 inches of snow!

THINGS I LOVE.

  • my boy and his toy
  • vacuuming up dog hair
  • garbanzo beans with olive oil, salt and pepper
  • being told I maintained my weight only discover I lost a pound!
  • new tweezers
  • cloudless days
  • Paris Hilton’s advice on being “sweet to everyone”
  • knowing where my money is
  • wearing Kevin’s dress socks with my boots
  • dog in boxes
  • 3 inches of snow on everything but the roads… this would make winter more bearable.
  • not getting an icky virus thats going around
  • Hoegaarden
  • skipping the family St. Patrick’s Day party
  • doing the St. Patrick’s Day Dash
  • chiropractors
  • feeling bad that I feel like someone got what was coming to them by being laid off. if you brag about what you have and complain about not getting a rebate check because you made to much money that year, I can’t feel to bad for you. jobs in certain industries aren’t needed right now, especially the travel industry.
  • becoming a “faux” aunt by ways of my brother outlaw
  • smart people who end up in fucked up situtations brought on by themselves
  • WW meetings actually making me want to stay on track and motivating me? me who doesn’t like cheesy group things?
  • being told I look fabulous by someone I haven’t seen in a few months
  • how easy people jump on the fad diet band wagon
  • taunting Kevin with the fact that I know the outcome of a UFC fight he hasn’t watched
  • free soap
  • people who actually try to help you break bad behaviors
  • sunsets through my living room window
  • more daylight!

dinner time, excellent.

leave a comment »

After a long day, I get to cook dinner. I feel so lucky.

Kevin is in the kitchen right now washing dishes! while singing along to music from his iPhone. Ugh. Our music taste can be so right on or very very opposite. Um, and his sining is rather awful.

Dinner will be some easy ass Rachel Ray recipe. Yes, she’s kind of annoying. But, some of her recipes are really easy on nights like tonight, they also leave me wishing I would have come up with something so easy.
