Just as long as you know you got me....

FRIDAY!!  And next week I get the underground heated parking spot! I am so ready for a couple days off, although we do have a rehearsal tomorrow. Hopefully it will be over with fast. I'm super tired.

My phone deleted a bunch of apps. Because it's dumb and has a mind of its own. So now I need to figure out what was deleted and reinstall them. I'm just waiting to Bingo Blitz to download right now. That's the most important one!

Now that dream is laid to rest, 'cause you have failed the test

Tomorrow is Friday! It's been a long week, probably mostly due to how much time I've spent in  my car commuting. I'd estimate it to be around 1,118 hours. Give or take. I've also been busy with the play. I'm currently working on putting together the program. I have a cute idea involving monkeys and trees so we'll see if I can pull it all together. Back up plan is a generic looking program with no originality. Both work, so we'll see.

Rehearsal tonight, tomorrow night and Saturday morning. Early. I think I need to be at ZarahZou's around 7-ish. I think there is going to be a lot of coffee involved in Saturday morning!

Wednesday, January 11, 2017

Pushing the night into the daytime....

Wednesday!! I'm ready for the week to be over. But we also have rehearsal on Saturday. So I guess I'll schedule 17 minutes to sleep sometime around 2 am Sunday. Even though I'm tired, I'm having a lot of fun. The show is going to be pretty good. The kids are all working hard. I'm just tired of how much time I'm spending in my car. Traffic has been terrible because of the roads and weather. Hopefully it will warm up and quit snowing and we can get a reprieve from 2 hour long commutes!

Tuesday, January 10, 2017

It hides behind a stranger, who don't know your alive ....

Tuesday.....The roads are horrible today. And I so wish that the people in the big huge trucks that want to drive 117 miles per hour would realize that I am in a little, tiny Saturn Ion. I can't drive that fast, and I prefer driving safely. And that is how I shall drive.

Rehearsal was cancelled last night. I hope that doesn't mean we have to stay later to make up for it. Things are moving along so well, and we are getting done earlier than I expected. I'd like that trend to continue.

Monday, January 09, 2017

If you don't expect too much from me, you might not be let down

Another Monday. Somehow they managed to get to up to 182 degrees in here. I think I may be literally melting! Good thing I wore a long sleeve shirt with a sweater over it or else I'd be chilly.

I used my Amazon gift card on a multitude of items, including lots and lots of pretty socks. And a tortilla press. Because everyone needs a tortilla press.

I changed my nail color to the very awesome Madam President. I am totally in love with OPI's mini Breakfast at Tiffany's collection. The colors are amazing. I was wearing CIA, which is a dark slate blue color. Madam President is a hot pinky-red color. Love! Love! Love!

I had a fantastic weekend of doing nothing. I love those kinds of weekends! Next Saturday we have rehearsal, so the day won't be quite so uneventful. I'll have to get dressed.

Friday, January 06, 2017

It's so cold out here in your wilderness.....

FRIDAY!! Yay! But I'm freezing and tired and my tooth insanely hurts. Prior to my dentist appointment yesterday, I had zero pain. After the drilling and poking and prodding and scalpeling, the pain is at a 7.9. For real. I'm trying not to whine, but.....

Rehearsal tonight. The show is going well so far, and I think it's going to be good. Especially with the talented stage manager.

Thursday, January 05, 2017

Lonely as I am, together we cry

At least it's the day before Friday, right?!?! I was up way too late last night. And I have rehearsal tonight so I won't get home until 10:30-ish. I really need a nap. Maybe ZarahZou will let me sleep ont he way to Watertown.

I have a meeting from 10-noon and then I have a dentist appointment at 12:20 to get a temporary crown. Then the grocery store. Then maybe I can squeeze in a quick nap before I have to drive to Excelsior to meet ZZ.

Today I am very thankful for my mittens. And I'm not so thankful for my fashion boots. They are very cute but they do nothing to keep out the cold. My toes are frozen.

Wednesday, January 04, 2017

That's when the taxi man turned on the radio, and a Jay-Z song was on.....

It's Wednesday! I fell asleep on the couch last night watching a stupid movie that I can't even remember the name of. M woke me up because my snoring was apparently obnoxious.

The dentist said I need a crown on my broken tooth. And so that will only set me back $82,000,000. Good thing I have insurance or who knows how much it would cost!  I love paying for dental work!

I'm still playing Bingo Blitz, but I cancelled my elite membership. I must say that I don't really miss it. It was kind of a waste of money. They really should reevaluate the benefits!!

Tuesday, January 03, 2017

And you'll think love is to pray.....

Back to work....I had a very, very good 3 day weekend. New Years Eve was fantastic, and I'm ready for 2017 to be better.

Our first rehearsal was last night, the read through went pretty well. And it went fast so I got home early.

Tonight I have to go to the dentist. One of my fillings broke last week and they can finally get me in this afternoon. My fingers are crossed for a quick repair. I'm hoping they can just refill it. I really can't afford a crown right now.

That's all I've got today. I'm tired and ready for a short week!

Friday, December 30, 2016

At the end of the day I have myself to blame......

It's Friday!!! And I kind of look like bloody hell. I had a very long night. But we write our own stories, so it's all on me. It just sometimes seems like every time I start to move forward, something pulls me back. I know life's not fair, but I wish that sometime I would get a huge break. I'm trying not to wallow in self-pity, but DAMN! I have been through a lot. And I'm still waiting for the proverbial tide to turn.

In other news, rehearsals start on Monday. I think we're ready. It's going to be a lot of work, but it should also be a lot of fun!

Thursday, December 29, 2016

Sway through the crowd to an empty space....

It's Thursday. I had to get up early this morning to get some copies of The Jungle Book script printed. I'm super excited for rehearsals to start. But I'm also exhausted in advance. I want to see ZarahZou's vision of the story, and I'm excited to work with a bunch of new little actors. Some of our kids have never been on stage before. It's going to be so much fun. But, it's also a lot of work. We don't know if they will be hit with a sudden case of stage fright, or if they will be hyper and need a constant babysitter. So many unknowns. But I guess that's what makes being a stage manager fun!

I'm still religiously playing MyVegas slots. I really hope i get the opportunity to actually go to Vegas this spring to take advantage of all of my reward points.

Wednesday, December 28, 2016

You never let me cross to the other side now.....

It's a Wednesday that feels like a Monday. 5 days off was great, but it is so hard to come back to work. I could have used a few more days to sleep.

This was one of the best Christmas's I've had in a very long time. It was a wonderfully relaxing day. And a couple people gave me the best presents that show they really know me! D2 got me a bunch of wonderful Vikings themed items: a soft, fuzzy blanket, a bracelet, socks, a coffee mug....things I absolutely love! M got me things that he noticed I need: slippers, slipper socks, gloves, a travel coffee cup. Very super thoughtful stuff and I love it all. In addition to that, there was a rather large gift card to my most favorite place - It's so wonderful when someone knows you so well!!

I have 12 billion work things to get done today. Taking a day off is so hard, the work just backs up. Court yesterday was interesting. But I'm not going to say too much about it in case a certain someone is googling me. If she is, please know that I just want the best for the kids and they are what is most important!

Thursday, December 22, 2016

And you know it ain't fiction, just a natural fact

Thursday/Friday.....I have so much to get done today. I haven't even started on D2's card, and I need to get it done today. I think it will either be terrible or one of my greatest creations ever!

I finished a bunch of my Christmas shopping yesterday. It was so fun to shop for M's baby niece and nephew. There are so many adorable little girl clothes!! I'm so excited for everyone to open their presents!!

I broke a nail this morning, of course. Hopefully I can fix it tonight. It's almost tempting to go back to acrylics, my real nails break so often!

Wednesday, December 21, 2016

Don't forget that you're condemned to me.....

I think it's Wednesday today. Not sure because the week is dragging. Maybe because I have a 5 day weekend coming up. A very busy 5 day weekend. I have 12 zillion places to be for Christmas, not sure how I'm going to get it all done.

I hate to admit this, but there is something wrong with my car. Again. I love my car and I don't want a new one. Hopefully my mechanic will take my concerns seriously and fix it. I want this car to last forever, it's irreplaceable. Literally. Because Saturns are no longer being manufactured. And there is nothing similar. So, fingers crossed it's a cheap fix.

So Bingo Blitz is "giving" out Christmas "gifts". Today it's 3 hours of  daub alert, which means that the bingo numbers that are blink so you don't miss them. This is the dumbest gift ever because who even has enough credits to play for 3 hours? I can play my daily credits in under 10 minutes. Why am I still playing this game? And why did I write a paragraph about it?

And this:

Tuesday, December 20, 2016

The stars are shining for you, and just like me I'm sure that they adore you.....

Tuesday! And it's warming up! It was 30 degrees this morning. That means no mittens! I switched to gloves. I bought myself new ones as an early Christmas present. I've decided that regardless of how they are playing, they are my team and I will support them. I wouldn't want my fans to abandon me just because I've given up on doing the thing I get paid millions of dollars to do. Yes, I have a bit of bitterness towards them. But I'm still representing!

Monday, December 19, 2016

Viva Las Vegas, sparklin' lights, Dangerous livin', tumblin' dice

Another Monday.....I have 12,000 emails and 77 voice mails to handle because I left early on Friday. It may be a slight exaggeration on the voice mails, but I really do have that many emails. I placed an order with Amazon Prime Pantry and they sent me a separate shipping confirmation for each item. Was that really necessary?

And the Vikings.....yeah. I have nothing to say about yesterdays game.

It's a 4 day week followed by a 5 day weekend. I'm so ready for it!

Thursday, December 15, 2016

Simply pretend that you can build them again......

Thursday! Yay! Tomorrow is Friday! When I got to work, I got halfway to the building before I realized I forgot my coffee. So I had to go back because today is a multiple cup of coffee day!

It's time again to decide if the bangs stay or if I cut them. I don't know why I keep coming to this dilemma because we all know they are going to stay. My forehead looks better covered by bangs!

I guess it's really winter because I pulled out my mittens. Thank you again ZarahZou for the best mittens ever!

Wednesday, December 14, 2016

Arms entwined, the chosen few....

Wednesday! I'm very tired, I think I'll sleep for 118 hours tonight. with my co-worker Cindy out of the office for 6-8 weeks, I am handling all of her work and I'm quite busy! But busy is good!

Auditions last night went great, but ZarahZou has some work to do because some fantastic actors showed up. I'm glad I don't have to make any casting decisions, I just get to call the people and offer them their parts.

My current addition is snapchat. And my only snapchat friend is The Princess. So I send her lots and lots of snaps. I've never taken so many selfies.

I had a fantastic hair day on Monday and I have not been able to duplicate it. I wonder what I did? Also, I have not colored my hair in nearly 3 months. And I don't think I have any gray!

Tuesday, December 13, 2016

Somethin' in the wind has learned my name.....

Tuesday!! I am so tired. Last night was the first night of auditions. At this point, the stage manager is just there to check people in and take notes. And, of course, introduce Mar-Mar to snapchat. We had fun taking pictures. Zarah-Zou has fantastic kids. I didn't get to sleep until about 11. I got home around 9:30, but I had so much to do. I always need to pick out my clothes for the next morning and make sure I am all set to go, otherwise I will not have enough time to get ready. I'm very high maintenance.

I'm not really on the top of the world today (I'm tired!), but I'm hoping uplifting music and extra coffee will get me there!

Monday, December 12, 2016

It's the way that I move, the things that I do oh.....

And just like that, I'm back to blogging! I needed a little break, I've been super busy at work, at home and in my head. Now that things have calmed down a bit, I can get back to me stuff, like my blog. Tonight are the auditions for The Jungle Book. I'm not auditioning because I'm stage managering. The ZennieZou/ZarahZou double threat is back for the first time in 3 years. She is directing and I'm the stage manager. The job is pretty much being bossy and organized. I'm not very good at the organized part, but I'm pretty good at telling people what to do!

I'm very fortunate to be able to go to both the Guns & Roses concert and Bon Jovi! 2 more concerts I will be experiencing for the first time. I'm really been crossing bands off the list the past 2 years.

So, the Vikings....Yes, they won yesterday. And I know a W is a W. But they have seriously got to get some things figured out QUICKLY! 3 months ago I was excited about the prospect of possibly playing in February. But now even making the playoffs are a long shot. At least we have a new kicker-guy, so there's that.

Monday, November 07, 2016

Talkin' to myself and feelin' old..... case anyone is interested, I left my car unlocked and you are free to steal the bag with my AP jersey in it. Thanks in advance. I don't want to talk about the Vikings today. Or tomorrow. Maybe in a week.

I have a lengthy to-do list for today that includes FINALLY making an appointment to get my windshield fixed. And then I need to watch a youtube video on how to change the blinker light. I'[m sure I can probably, maybe do it by myself. Possibly. But I will watch a video to see.

That's it. It's Monday. I don't really like Mondays.

Wednesday, November 02, 2016

So I've drawn the conclusion it's all an Illusion.....

The work week is nearly half over. Last night I cleaned my upstairs bathroom. I am never going to understand how the bathtub gets so dirty. It should be the cleanest place in the house. With all that hot, soapy water, how can it not clean itself??

I'm also amazed at how surprised I am that the coffee cup I got from the dollar store leaks. I mean, I paid $1 for it. I should pretty much expect leaks.

Tuesday, November 01, 2016

But I, I think I'm pretty with these old boots on....

Another Tuesday. I'm trying not to be cranky, but last night I watched a horror movie called Monday Night Football. I don't know what happened to the team in the last couple of weeks, but all of a sudden they can't throw, catch, run or tackle. They only ran 2 plays last night: run it up the middle and throw it away. To be clear, I'm okay with losing. I know we won't go undefeated. But I am not okay with not even bothering to show up. Losing to the Chicago Bears is a travesty! Not just losing, but letting them dominate. This should have been our year. Our defense is strong. But the offense just can't seem to get it together. It's going to be another long, painful Vikings season.

On a different note, the Elle King concert was PHENOMENAL! She is so good live! And she is so engaging and absolutely hilarious. I loved her before, but now I love her even more.

Thursday, October 27, 2016

See what I want slip slide to it swiftly.....

Tomorrow is Friday!! But I suppose I need to get through today before I end my week! lol

So I ordered a couple of ipad cases on ebay. And, of course, in typical Jennie fashion, I ordered the wrong size. And since they were shipped from overseas, I can't even return them. So I'm selling them on a Facebook garage sale site. At a loss. But at least I'm not stuck with cases that don't fit. One of them is so cute with jewels and crowns. Oh, well.

Wednesday, October 26, 2016

And when I go home at night and lay my head down....

Wednesday....That I was able to actually make it to work on time is amazing. I decided to sleep in until 5:30. The bed was comfy and I was so relaxed. But I did get up and make it to work on time. Although I do look like I literally just rolled out of bed.

It's 1700 degrees in here and I can't take off my sweater because my shirt is just a little bit too tight. Poor wardrobe planning. Nobody needs to see the crap that hangs over my pants. Speaking of pants, I just noticed that these have nail polish spilled on them. I am just one big wardrobe malfunction today!!

Tuesday, October 25, 2016

Wouldn't like to get my love caught in the slammin' door.....

Tuesday.....I'm over both The Walking Dead and the Vikings game and am ready to move on and look forward to the next episode and the next game. I knew we wouldn't go undefeated, I just hate that the loss was so ugly! But we can redeem ourselves next Monday! I've always known that being a Vikings fan is painful, so the loss wasn't entirely a surprise.

So I'm in the middle of a painful gout flare-up. Am I not too young to be dealing with something like this? And for anyone not familiar with it, it is the most painful thing ever. But I am sucking it up and not whining! But it does reinforce the need for me to quit drinking. Alcohol exasperates the condition, and I don't want to deal with this again.

Monday, October 24, 2016

In the stillness of remembering what you had....

It's Monday. And the start of a new week. I could deal with today and be in a pleasantish mood after the Vikings horrible loss, but then The Walking Dead happened. The combination of the two, plus not being able to sleep least night (because of them) is going to make today a very, very long day.

In better news, I made 5 crockpots of chili on Saturday so I don't have to cook ever again. And C-C-W managed to free up her schedule so she can go to Elle King with me on Saturday. And she said she'd drive!

Friday, October 21, 2016

It's in my head, darling I hope.....

FRIDAY!! Yay!! I'm ready for the week to be over. And as much as I want a weekend, I can't wait until Sunday! I want to continue our winning streak!

So I started watching Breakout Kings on Netflix and it was super good. But apparently it was cancelled after 2 seasons and it ends on a cliffhanger. Ugh!! I like resolution! How come everything good gets cancelled?

Thursday, October 20, 2016

When they play their music, that hard rock music....

Thursday!!! So I posted a picture of my new handbag on the Minnesota Vikings Family facebook page and I've gotten 437 likes. That's like a lot. But it is a REALLY cute handbag!

On Saturday I'm going to make chili for the game on Sunday. I haven't made it for several months, so I'm excited. It's the little things.

C-C-W is getting lasik, and it's making me really, really consider it. I can't even imagine not having to wear glasses. That would be wonderful!

Wednesday, October 19, 2016

But at least I'm enjoying the ride, at least I'll enjoy the ride.....

Wednesday!!! The work week is nearly half over! Last night I tried to help the Princess with math, but I realized I am a terrible teacher. I get so excited about percentages and fractions, and I think that makes it harder for her because math is really hard for her. It's definitely one of those things you either love or hate. And I love it. And I wish I could make her love it, but I can't. So I will just have to go slow and hope she catches on.

I can't wait until the concert Saturday night! And then the game on Sunday! I moved into my new Vikings handbag and I'm so excited about it!! It's a bit larger than I'm used to, but it is so cute!

Tuesday, October 18, 2016

Anything less that the best is a felony......

Tuesday! Last night I had a dream that I was redoing my kitchen floors and I found the coolest thing. It was a scale that replaces one of the tiles. Like a scale for weighing yourself. And it was super thin and it exactly matched the color of the tiles. I think I either need to find one or invent one, because it was just perfect for my kitchen!

and now back to work....

Monday, October 17, 2016

And don't you worry what they tell themselves when you're away.....

Another Monday....I had a pretty good weekend. I didn't do much of anything, watched netflix, hung out with M, I did a taste test on Sunday, then shopping with the Princess. It was great. And the Vikings are still 5-0! I was sort of convinced that they'd find a way to lose on a bye week, but actually they won because the Packers lost. I need to start enjoying the ride instead of waiting for the crash. lol

Next Saturday is the I love the 90's concert. I'm going with D2 and the Princess. That will be a lot of fun!!! I'm super excited!

Friday, October 14, 2016

When all your promises are gone.....

FRIDAY!!! Bye weeks make me kind of sad. Obviously because I can't watch my team win, but also because I don't want them to lose the momentum they have built up over the past few weeks. But I guess everyone needs a few days off.

I have the most horrible dry skin on my face. I bought a spendy-ish lotion, and it smells TERRIBLE! So hopefully it will work!

I drank a 7 point coffee drink this morning, and it was so not worth 7 points. I only get 30 points a day. It was okay, but so not worth spending that many points.

I'm so glad it's the weekend!

Thursday, October 13, 2016

Take it easy, take it slow.....

Thursday!! And yes, I'm wearing yoga pants today. But they don't really count because they are from Ann Taylor. And also, I need to wax my eyebrows. I finally shut my AC off last night. But I want to wait until Thanksgiving to put on the heat. And also to wear socks.

I'm seriously contemplating cancelling my Bingo Blitz Elite membership. Some of the seasonal rooms are impossible to complete and it makes me cranky. I hate being cranky about a stupid Facebook game. But I also love playing it. So maybe I will play it for free for awhile and see how that goes.

Tuesday, October 11, 2016

Right round like a record, baby.....

Tuesday.....It's only 6:30 and I've already had 4 cups of coffee and a diet coke. I even tried to get to work super early, but of course traffic prevented that plan from happening. Not sure why I woke up so early, but I assume it is because I fell asleep early. And woke up when I dropped my ipad on my face.

Today will be a challenging lunch day because we are having a Chipotle taco bar catered in. Pretty much everything yummy is super high points. So I just need to be super careful with portions to make it fit into Weight Watchers. And I already pre-planned my dinner so I can stay within my points. I'm really trying to dedicate myself to the plan so it works. It would be easier if I wasn't so lazy and if junk food didn't taste so good.

Monday, October 10, 2016

You thought I wouldn't sell without you, sold nine million....

Monday and the beginning of a new week. The highlight of my weekend is obviously 5-0!! Had it been suggested 2 months ago that we would be 5-0 without Teddy or AP, I might have cried at the prospect of not having my star QB and running back. But, I think all the pieces are in place for a very big year. But, lets take it one game at a time!

I colored D2's daughters hair purple, and I so want purple hair! If this is the kind of season I think it might be, I may have purple hair in February. I would definitely compromise my professional integrity for the big game!

The rest of my weekend was pretty non-eventful. 30 minute taste test for $30, and a whole lot of Netflix. I thought about going to the Ladies of Champlin (LOC) bonfire Saturday night, but I didn't want to give up a chance to have the living room to myself. I finished the latest season of The Fosters and tried a couple of other shows, but couldn't get into them. So, I'm back to American Crime, I'm almost through season 2. Then I need to find something else.....

Friday, October 07, 2016

as the cash box rang I thought everything away.....

FRIDAY!!! I have a ton of work to get through before I can start my weekend, but I'm determined to get it all done!! I have a whole weekend full of nothing planned, helping D2 with her daughters hair, spending time with the Princess, netflix, getting paid to sample something, and then the Vikings game. And hopefully a couple of naps in there somewhere.

But in order to do all that, I need to start with checking my voice mails and reading some emails.and in just a few short hours, my weekend can begin!

Tuesday, October 04, 2016

And I have met my destiny in quite a similar way.....

Tuesday!! And 4-0!!!! I'm so excited about this! I know the prospect of going undefeated is unrealistic, but I'm hoping that every game is going to be competitive and we don't get blown out at some point. This is going to be a GREAT season! Skol!!

Tomorrow night is Def Leppard!! M won tickets on Saturday, so now me, M, C-C-W and Becky get to go! I'm sad that D2 had to cancel, but it's still going to be a great night!!

Thursday, September 29, 2016

Singing songs to me beneath the marquee, Oversold

Thursday!! And 2 days to get all the month ends tasks done. I think I can do it!!

I'm still deciding about whether or not to keep the bangs and they are so long now that I need to pin them back. I need to figure out my plan soon. And I still haven't died my hair. It looks WONDERFUL with the roots growing growing out, but at least I'll finally know what my real hair color is and if I have any gray. It would not be fair if I had gray hair AND acne. One or the other!!

I'm so excited about being 3-0. This makes me very, very happy!

Tuesday, September 27, 2016

So baby pull me closer in the backseat of your Rover...

.Tuesday.....I've been working for a couple hours already and am making progress on the big mess in my email inbox. I had 127 emails to deal with, and now I'm down to under 100. I'll get them all done today. Or tomorrow.

I think I want to go back to yoga, I sort of miss it.

Today one of our managers will be wearing the clown costume that she "won" the right to wear for the United Way. We raised about 3 times as much money as I expected from that event. I don't think she's thrilled that she "won", but she's being a good sport about it. And it's for a good cause!

Monday, September 26, 2016

In the club on the late night, feeling right....

Monday! and it's a great day! 3-0!! Skol!!

I had a pretty uneventful weekend, finished The Walking Dead (and hate the cliffhanger) and I finished My Mad Fat Diary. Super good show! I made a spaghetti lasagna, and it turned out fantastic.

We wrapped up our United Way fundraiser last week, but we've still got to do all the counting and paperwork. So many spreadsheets!

Other than that, not much is going on.

Thursday, September 22, 2016

Electric eyes that you can't ignore.....

It's Thursday! And the week is nearly over. That's a super good thing because I've been trying to do way too many things at once, and I'm getting rather sloppy. I just almost ended an email to a district manager with "love ya", so I think I may be a bit overworked. I went home and took an hour nap last night and then I went to sleep by 8:15. But I still feel tired. I will be very glad when United Way week is over. Plus, the coworker I'm covering for is planning to be back for half days in mid-October. I'm very happy and she's getting better, and even happier she'll be back.

Ok, back to work. I have 18 billion things to get done!

Tuesday, September 20, 2016

There's lipstick on her new dress.....

Tuesday! Bake sale day! Not entirely sure how I'm going to get work done and run a bake sale, but I'm going to have to. I may be at work until 7 pm, but there are things I absolutely have to get done today. I am going to need a ton of coffee!

I'm wearing my Vikings-Prince Skol shirt today. Because I think it's my favorite shirt. and it makes me happy.

I started watching season 6 of The Walking Dead, and someone that said it was the dumbest show ever started watching it. And now I think they might be a fan. Although they'll never admit it. So I had to find something else to watch until we can get together and binge through a few more episodes. So the Princess told me to watch My Mad Fat Diary. It's actually really, really good. So much drama!

Monday, September 19, 2016

I'm gonna rock on away from here....

Monday....I was up way too late last night celebrating the Vikings win! Today I'm wearing Bridgewater because AP is covered in beer. And I can't wash it, but I'm okay with that! I need more coffee!!

I just ate a fruity pebbles marshmallow bar for breakfast. I spent all weekend baking for the bake sale tomorrow and I made a lot of yummy things! And I am NEVER making chex mix again. What a pain in the ass! I didn't realize how complicated it is. It should be easy! At least hopefully we will raise a lot of money!

Thursday, September 15, 2016

And I can't break away from this parade.....

Thursday!! I can not wait for the weekend. And for this stupid cough to go away. It's getting really, really old. My life right now is the cough and the United Way fundraiser. That's it. Although this afternoon I get to watch Layla for awhile. I miss that adorable baby, who isn't actually a baby since she's almost 14 months old.

But I don't wanna be the puppet....

Wednesday!  It's been a long week so far, I've spent most every night up coughing. I'm sick of being sick.

We kicked off United Way week yesterday with a breakfast and guest speaker. My intro speech was 2 sentences long because every time I talk, I cough. I've been on antibiotics since Sunday, so it should slow down soon. I hope. Especially since I need to spend this weekend baking for the bake sale.

Sunday is a HUGE football game. I'm filled with nervous excitement. I had been hoping we'd have a new kicker-guy before then, but apparently that is not going to happen. We are going to need every point we can get, so he MUST make the point afters. You just can't miss those!

Cause the music fills me good and it gets me every time....

It's Friday!! I was sleeping by 7:00 last night. I was so sick! But I think I'm at least 82% better. Probably all the drugs! Sudafed, Theraflu, cough syrup, cough drops, and a couple Advil. I think I'm good!

It took me an extra half an hour to get to work today because of the traffic. The thought crossed my mind that everyone on the road was stupid. And then I remember I needed to get to work so I could order more of this:  And then I realized that I'm probably the stupid one for paying $17 for 4 oz of what is basically just salt and water. .So I decided I wouldn't order it.

No matter the distance, I want you to know....

It's the day before Friday! I ended up at work super late last night, but I got a lot done. Still a lot more to do, but I see the light at the end of the tunnel. It's dim, but I see it.

Maybe TMI, but I feel weird today because I'm wearing a thong with a dress. I'm not sure I've ever worn a thong with a dress before. And I'm not sure I ever will again. It just feels strange.

That's it. That's my life today. Back to work!

I lost myself in a familiar song.....

Wednesday!! I love that the week is half over already! I am so insanely busy at work. Plus I screwed up a huge spreadsheet and I think I'm going to have to redo the whole thing. But that will only take me 187 hours, so no big deal!

I'm hoping for a nice, relaxing, low key weekend. A parade on Saturday, football on Sunday, hopefully some more reading. I cleaned for about 4 hours last night, so no cleaning this weekend!!
