Six Word Saturday

Loving this snow and my husband! :)

We've gotten about 9 inches so far and since we got so much and it's icy out there my husband got the call that the resturant (which is actually in a country club) wouldn't be open today! :) It's rare that I get Saturday's with my hubby and I'm loving it!

Random Stuff......

Do you ever get upset that a book is taking you so long to read? I've been reading The Girls forever it feels. I'm so ready for it to be finished and it just keeps dragging on and on...If I was a quiter I'd quit it but I ain' t no quiter!
Is a really cool website with just crockpot recipes...Anyhow, she just posted a Chicken Enchilada Chili and it was so good. You have to try it out!

I'm one of those people who love snow and we're supposed to be getting some on Friday! I'm so excited.

I just read a post at another blog that I follow and she was talking about she'd decided not to get a Wii. Well, that exact same day as reading that my husband went out and bought us one! haha. I've been bugging him for weeks about I want a Wii cause he had an xbox360. Well, he tried to get on his xbox on Monday and the ring of death (it over heated) came on so the xbox is shot! So we got a Wii...I LOVE IT! I've started working out with it and then we also downloaded the game Super Mario Brothers 3 on there! I loved that game when I was a kid.

Anyhow, enough rambling! Enjoy your Thursday! :)

Sunday Stealing: The Negativity Meme

I usually try to be a pretty postive person and always look at things in a postive way but I had to do this meme.

Foods which disgust the crap out of me: where to begin...I don't like beans unless it's chili beans. Livers are nasty. Asparagus is really yucky! BUT my ultimate unfavorite food is Pinto Beans they just look sicking!

TV show I loathe: Hum...I don't think I really have one but I don't care for That 70's Show if that counts.

Movie I loathe: SAW any of them. They are freakish and just wrong and scary too...The first one was okay and then my husband and I went to see Saw II and I cried all the way through the movie.

Music genres I loathe: This may amaze some people but I don't like country at all.

Magazine which annoys me: Don't have one.

Makes me cranky at restaurant: Well since NC made all restaurants non-smoking, I'd have to say the things that makes me cranky in a restaurant is people who don't control their children.

Makes me cranky in public: Stupid people. If I'm in a hurry and people driving slow that makes me cranky. Or people going to fast. haha

Makes me cranky in general: See above two answers. Stupid people and people who don't control their children.

Pisses me off at home: Dishes being left either in the living room or being left waiting to wash to long (I'm guilty of it too though).

Pisses me off at work: I work with a bunch of women and sometimes we can all be catty.

Pisses me off in general: Doesn't piss me off but I don't like to talk on the phone.

Makes me impatient at home: Nothin' really...

Makes me impatient at work: When the children don't listen. haha...

Makes me impatient in public: Unfriendly people. If I'm coming through your line at the grocery store and you are the cashier say how are you (even if you don't care) and say thank you (even if you don't care).

Celebrity I hate: I think Lady Gaga is over-rated. She's weird!

Music artist I hate: Kayne West (I call him K-9 when I talk about him)

I could care less about: having the right clothes. I would rather wear something comfortable then something that's in style.

Annoys the crap out of me weekdays: getting up early. I am not a morning person. I'd rather stay up late and sleep late.

Annoys the crap out of me weekends: I still wake up early, although most of the time I roll over and go back to sleep.

Blogger's habit that annoys you: music on the profile all the way at the bottom where you have to wait for the page to load and then stop the music.

Feature on your blog you hate: music.

Movie star you despise: don't despise him but I'm not a Brad Pitt fan.

Politician that you hate: Again, hates a strong word but so I don't hate any politician.

Six Word Saturday and Prayers Please....

Please pray, my aunt passed away.

My aunt passed away yesterday around 4:45pm so we are thankful for any prayers. Thanks! :)

Friday Fill-In #160 & Other stuff...

So I was supposed to post a blog yesterday but I came home from work at about 6pm and then thought well, I'm tired so I'll take a nap. That nap turned into bedtime. So last night I went to bed at 6:30pm and slept til this morning at 7:15 when I got up for work! So I'm well rested. haha...

Anyhow, here's my Friday Fill-Ins! :)

1. You have a chance to go, GO NOW!
2. GO right now!
3. There is a lot going on in my world.
4. Do NOT credit items and pay later.
5. It's time to man up and pay your debts!
6. It's all up in the air but at least I know where I'm going in the end (do you?).
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to relaxing at home but ended up at the hospital with my aunt, tomorrow my plans include laundry and visiting the hospital and Sunday, I want to go to church and spend time with family!

P.S. I'd like everyone to keep my aunt, Karen, and our family in your prayers. She has cancer and it's in it's final stages so there is nothing they can do for her except make her comfortable now. Thanks so much!

Monday Mayhem - The Scenario

The Scenario

Welcome to Monday Mayhem, where no two Mondays are the same.
Today's meme is the scenario meme. For each prompt, simply write your best answer.

1. You see a strange car pull up to your neighbor's house every day at lunch time. You accidental glance into the window of the house and notice that your 'happily married neighbor' is fooling around! What do you do? Mind my own business and pray for them (by the way, why am I home everyday at lunch???)

2. You are at the mall and a mom with really annoying screaming little kids is walking in front of you. She goes to give her kids a quarter for the giant gum ball machine and she accidentally drops a $10 bill and doesn't realize it. What do you do? Pick up and give it back to her. Was there really a question about this? haha

3. You get an email from a candy company telling you that they will send you 6 pounds of delicious chocolate if you blog about their product. When you get the product and try it you realize that it is the worst chocolate that you have ever tasted. What do you do? Post honestly and then decline the chocolate when they try to give it to you.

4. Texting while driving is one of the most dangerous and annoying things someone could do. Yet, what would you do if you were driving and listening to the radio when the announcer says that he will give $10,000 to the first person with your name that texts a message to him? Pull over and text right then and there. Mind you, you probably won't make it to be the first one but it's still worth a shot!

5. You've been invited to your boss's house for a dinner party. It's dark out and there is poor lighting when you get there. As soon as you get inside you realize that you have stepped in dog poop and you have tracked into your boss's house. What do you do? Point it out to her and apologize. Then clean it up.

6. You are at a restaurant waiting for your food to arrive. You've waited nearly 30 minutes since the moment you placed your order when your food finally shows up. There is a hair on the top of the food. Do you send it back and wait another 30 minutes or do you deal? Um, I send it back and ask to speak to the manager then I get up and leave.

7. If you had the power to do so, what would be the one question that you would like to ask anyone who reads this? Why don't more people comment on post? Everyone loves to get comments, so please leave a thought.

Six Word Saturday

Wishes I was done with school!!!!!

Last semester, I can do it! :) How about you got 2 six word sentences...HAHA

Thursday, January 14, 2010


Completely random post...Have you ever noticed that I mainly post on the weekends? That's cause I forget to check blogger through-out the week.

Does anyone else get post from random people and usually about viagra or something? Can we say REJECT, that is a prime example of why all comments have to be approved by me.

I just love DVR and watching recorded shows with my husband. That's the life. But then again I love to just spend time with him! We watch House (which was really funny this week), American Idol (the auditions are funny), Biggest Loser (to help encourage us) and many more.

My birthday is coming up and I feel like I'm getting old! Especially when children come into the daycare that I work at that I had 4 years ago and they are in 3rd grade.

So to keep me to check up on blogger through-out the week I'm going to try to start doing like a Ten Facts Thursday...

1. I like chocolate.
2. I dislike liquid meds, just can't take them.
3. I'm a Christian.
4. I am turning into my mother more and more everyday, not that it's a bad thing!
5. I want to learn how to use Paint Shop Pro so I can design different things.
6. My least favorite food is probably beans. Unless they are chili beans.
7. I wished I took more pictures for memories.
8. Winter is my favorite season.
9. Summer is my least favorite season.
10. I love to read (like you didn't know that?!)

Hope you enjoyed this!

Six Word Saturday

Thankful for good books to read!!!

Read below post for more...

Christmas Jars by Jason F. Wright

This past year my husband and I were watching Glenn Beck, now I don't usually watch news type stuff but that night my husband was watching it so I naturally tuned in too. He was talking about the reason we celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas. The real reason, not Santa Claus reason. Then he started talking about this book called the Christmas Jars and how it had changed his life and he'd started a tradition with his children. My husband thought this was a great idea. You take a jar and put spare change in it through-out the year and then on Christmas Eve you take it and give it away. So this past Christmas Eve we took a jar that was about 1/4 full and left it on a strangers door step. This was after we drove around and asked God where to leave it. I don't know what this family was going through but God wanted them to have it. It was a true blessing to be able to do something like this and our family will carry on this tradition. This book tells about how this tradition started. I think it's a must read and will change your life if you let it. I gave it a 5 star because although I read it once, it would be one of those few books that I could read over and over again.

I have decided not to post all the books I read because some books just aren't worth posting if you know what I mean. So from now on I'll only be posting books that I rate at a 4 or 5 star as to that means I think they are really good. Saying that though I'm very picky about giving out 4 and 5 stars so you may not be seeing many books. haha. Anyhow, everyone read needs to read The Christmas Jars! :)

Friday Fill-In #158

1. There are places that should get more snow then they do.
2. Don't blow those clouds away (they may bring snow).
3. Standing in the Rain is an awesome song by Superchic(k).
4. Boy oh boy.
5. He went out tiger hunting and came back empty handed.
6. Keep my mind from wandering (is that possible?).
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to relaxing around the house, tomorrow my plans include cleaning, cleaning, cleaning and Sunday, I want to go to church and spend time with family!

Sunday, January 03, 2010


Last year, 2009, my goal was to read 50 books. Well, I met that goal by reading 56 (10 of those being children's books for school). Anyhow, I decided this year that I wouldn't set a goal that I just wanted to read. So read I will do...Do you know of any good books?

So, I've gotten very OCD (or is that CDO??? haha) about how I read books. For example if I add a book to the TBR list that I have going on - that's about 650 books - then I will find and make a list of all the books by that author and the order that the author wrote them in. Very nerdy I know. But again I'm rambling. So I have an excel file with different authors and all their books listed. I'd love to read all of a few author's books. Like I know I have two Jodi Picoult books left and then I will have read all of her books.

So read just to have fun - because reading is fun - is my goal and lose a little bit more weight is another goal for 2010. What are some other goals I could set?! Hum...
