Cake and Friday Fillins

So Saturday we get to sample wedding cakes for breakfast, doesn’t that sound fun??? I am not sure of the size or anything else, but I know one layer has to be chocolate. This is a picture of the cake she would like, though she wants red roses on top instead of pink. (I don't know where the picture came from so sorry about the photo credit thingy)

I am overwhelmed with the amount of stuff we have to do, but DD2 is very excited and has really stepped up to the plate. She has reserved the rooms, the van is taken care of and she is planning her trip to Europe at the same time. She leaves about 5 days after the wedding so I am grateful that she is handling everything. Saturday afternoon will not be so great tho, we will be at David’s trying on bridesmaid dresses, which will be a most evil form of torture. I will make sure to take valium with me for both of us. lolol

I have been knitting finally, nothing picture, worthy, but it is moving along. The yarn and the needles fell good in my hands and is very relaxing; it makes me wonder why I put it down.

I hope you all have a great weekend.
1. Wouldn't it be easy if I could just speak my responses to emails instead of typing.
2. ___????____ better than ever!
3. I love the taste of creamy chocolate.
4. We live in the living room.
5. The first thing we're going to do is drink heavily.
6. The water faucet is going drip, drip, drip; it is very annoying.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to playing Mafia Wars, tomorrow my plans include sampling wedding cakes, shopping for bridesmaid dresses, and . . . and Sunday, I want to sleeeeep!

My oldest baby is getting married. I am so happy for her and hope that she will be as happy as she deserves. HOWEVER, she is getting married on February 27, four weeks from now. I could slap her silly for planning such a short time frame, though there are dozens of reasons and logistics that makes it a good time. DD2 and I have found the chapel, the reception is being held in a restaurant that we all love and her dress has been picked out. Now I only have to deal with what has to be accomplished to get ready for houseguests, pick out the wedding cake, reserve hotel rooms, coordinate flight times for people flying in and out, and reserve a van. I think. . .

A Slug, A Bag, and Friday Fillins

Hi all, yes I have been a slug this week. I was sooo tired last week that I knew I had to recharge, but realized that I had to do it at home, so I took some leave from work and did nothing but sleep for 3 days. I am now stiff, but at least I am not quite as tired. Maybe it is just the sadness thing, but I needed that sleep, though after 1 day back at work I feel like it did not happen. lolol

I forgot to show you this wonderful bag I received for Christmas, Wendy
discussed it on her blog and had a discount coupon for it from Scout’s Swag. I sent the link to DD1 who searched high and low for the bags, since it was already sold out when I sent her the link. Isn’t she great, the bag sure is. FYI, the picture is straight from the Namaste web site, as I couldnt take a picture this nice if I had to. Mine is Red a great real red, not to pink, and I love it.

FYI, I did pick up the needles this week, and it was great! I think the mojo is slowly returning.

Have a great weekend!

1. You have a chance to set it right and move on.
2. I should go to bed right now!
3. There is a chance for everyone to have happiness in their lives.
4. Play now and pay later.
5. It's time to get off the couch and go inhale the sun.
6. Tonight is up in the air but there is always hope for tomorrow.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to playing Mafia Wars, tomorrow my plans include cleaning up and knitting (working on that mojo thing) and Sunday, I want to ?????!

Diets and Mojo

So DD2 has decided that we need to diet, which is so unfortunately true; I told her fine and she has picked the Atkins diet for us. So far she has picked out and prepared our food and it has been great to come home to a dinner that I haven’t had to cook. They have been tasty and satisfying (she even opened the spice cabinet), but they were missing and important ingredient. . .

BREAD. How can a person eat a meal and not have wonderful bread with lots of butter? Its killing me, and probably very good for me and my sugar levels. Yuck! I am willing to stick with it as long as she is, but this weekend will be the test. Lolol

I have been missing the old knitting mojo and Deb mentioned that I should try something new, that I had not tried before to get back in the groove. I discovered a new group on Ravelry today called Hugs for Haiti that are knitting squares for blankets; while this is not something new, it has a purpose so I am going to start that tonight, trying a new stitch on the squares. I hope this gets me back in the groove, because I truly miss knitting, but I am just, blah. . .

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend planned!
1. The lesson I learned yesterday was always get a chair with a cushier seat when sitting in a meeting for 7 long hours.
2. Walmart, where friends and family meet.
3. All these years I thought I had oily skin, until I moved to Denver.
4. Silence descended on the room when I arrived.
5. The truth is sometimes hard, but always a good thing.
6. Sadness and despair is what I remember most from that day.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to Mafia Wars, tomorrow my plans include cleaning and a massage, hopefully some knitting and Sunday, I want to I don’t know, I will be glad to get through tomorrow!

Well I got most of the house straightened up; give a big Woohooo to me. I was tired, but it was a mess. DD2 gets to clean the carpets upstairs this weekend (isn’t she lucky.) I sat down to knit the other night and fell asleep. And since then I have not been able to sleep, I am up at 3 or 4 in the morning and cannot fall asleep at night. Being tired is not conducive to sitting still and knitting, because I can’t follow the recipe. I am whining today aren’t I? but it is a beautiful day in the neighborhood and the sun is out so I think I will go for a walk!

Have a great day!

The Christmas tree and all decoration are now down and put away. What a fun way top spend the day when we are having a heat wave :-)

Friday, January 8, 2010


This morning when I left for work it was 8 freaking degrees outside, why, I ask you, should I have to go outside when it is that cold? I should have stayed home today, because I am not getting jack done at work, but the sun is out and we are having a heat wave of 31 degrees right this minute. I went outside to inhale the sun and it felt so good, I could have cried, it was better than a massage would have been at that moment. Lolol It’s amazing how our needs and desires change when the atmosphere around us changes, last night I was cold but still wanted a massage, but today the sun filled me up and made me happy. The only thing that could have made me happier was to be sitting on a beach, (which I am missing a lot).

I have decided that I am cleaning house tonight and tomorrow morning (and taking down the christmas tree finally) and then I am going to put a chick flick in the old blue ray player and knit, whether I want to or not. I figure eventually I will start having fun after watching the rows grow, with nice even stitches, maybe it will be like a narcotic???

BTW, did I tell you that the physical therapy thing is over with for a while? The doctor said the since the Empi (tens) and massage are controlling the pain, that the therapy is over. Oh and she also said that if the tingling gets worse, to call her lolol I said how bad should it be and she kind of laughed, but so did I. Wahooo, no more getting up earlier than I have to lol.

Have a great weekend!

1. There are places I remember. . . .
2. Open the windows and blow those clouds away.
3. Standing in the rain is fun and softens your hair.
4. Lion, and tigers and bears oh boy (or is it oh my?).
5. He went out tiger hunting and came back with a kitty cat.
6. Please help me keep my mind from wandering.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to cleaning, tomorrow my plans include cleaning and knitting (I am determined to get that knitting mojo back) and Sunday, I want to clean some more and do laundry!

Wahooo, DD2 is out of town for 3 days so I can wallow in the silence and not care about anything as long as the doors are locked and the animals fed. What I will get to do is clean the house; it is such a mess that a cleaner would not be able to clean until I spend 24 hours picking up our mess. How does a house get this messy with only two (supposedly) adults living in it?? It is a small house so why can’t we keep it neat? It’s messy not especially dirty, but the clutter is killing me. lololol I want to knit (trying to work on that old mojo thing) but the clutter is too bad to sit in. Isn’t this a sad story?

Kitchen is Closed and Waffle House

I love to cook; in fact, it is my third favorite hobby after knitting and reading; however, I am soooo tired of cooking. You know, it’s kind of funny, when people know you love to do something, they let you do it all of the time, without thinking about it. It is like, “Oh she likes to cook, so she is having fun” but there is such a thing as too much of a good thing! I feel like I have been cooking constantly since Thanksgiving. lolol The kitchen is now closed! I am going through and throwing stuff out, putting away, cleaning, and then no one will get anything out of there unless they fix it and clean up behind it. :-)

DD1 and her boyfriend came here to visit since they could not get her for Christmas so we had a second Christmas. It was fun, and I love seeing her and the BF because they are great people to visit with. I always have a good time with them and it is fun to watch people change over time when you do not see them everyday. We had four cranky dogs in the house too, they could not decide who should sit where so there was a lot of growling.

DD2 and I found a Waffle House! We have not had their wonderful food for over a year and a half and I was seriously craving it. When we were at my last PT visit, she looked it up on her Blackberry and discovered how close it (there is only one here in Colorado) was to where we were and decided to stop. It was just as we remembered, delicious. mmmmmmm I will be going there every so often in the future. Waffle House seems to be a southern thing so we were very lucky to find one here and especially find one so close!
