Ugh... I am so tired, but can't sleep at night. My legs are achy. So, I stay up and blog. Why? Because I won't have a chance to do it tomorrow.

Josh has a birthday tomorrow. He will be 29. Yes, I am a cradle robber. He is 6 years younger than me. Oh well.

I am going to attempt to get some sleep. I need to! Big day tomorrow!

Lots To Do!!

I think I missed a dental appointment. Oh well, guess I will have to reschedule. There is just too much going on right now. I am surprised the dentist office didn't call me. They must be just as busy.

Yesterday was the worst! I had meetings and conference calls from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Talk about draining a person of energy! Ugh! Today, I have a conference call at 9 a.m., the kid has to go back to the orthodontist because a bracket fell off, I have a work luncheon to go to at 11:30 a.m. and we have training today for our department heads. Whew! I am so happy I am off tomorrow!

Well, I better get around here. Talk to you all later!

Storms Passing Through

Storms have been passing through for most of the late afternoon and evening. The tornado sirens have been going off throughout the day. It's a nice cool evening with the occasional clap of thunder.

So, how was your weekend? Mine was full of work and driving. This next week will be full of meetings and conference calls.

I am making peanut butter cookies right now. Sorry, I won't be posting any pictures, but I am sure you can all smell them from your computer. Can't wait to bite into a warm peanut butter cookie and douse it with cold milk!

Happy Sunday!

I am trying to enjoy my evening. Not having much success. The kid and Josh are heading to Kansas City tomorrow to see my brother and hopefully catch a Royal's game in between rain drops. I wish I could go, but work calls my name. And I don't even have to work all day. But they are leaving early and coming home late. sigh.....

Oh well, I guess I can certainly enjoy some me time! I do want to finish up on this book I started about accountability. It's been quite the eye opener so far.

Well, talk to you all later!

Domestic Goddess

The title says it all. It's my day off and what do you think a girl like me should be doing on a beautiful day like this? Well, one would think shopping, or visiting friends, but no, that is not the case. It's all about the housework today. Several loads of laundry need to be done. The dishes need to be put away. The bathroom needs to be cleaned and my bedroom has finally become so disorderly that it has become absolutely necessary to take care of the situation.

So, while in between my loads of laundry, orthodontist appointment for the kid, cooking and cleaning, I will be on the computer. One of you asked how I find the time. Well, after I get home from work, the kid is usually outside playing. While I am cooking dinner, I jump on the computer and check out my Facebook account and this blog. After dinner, while the kid is taking a shower or reading a chapter in his book, I jump back on the computer and work on my Urbanspoon reviews or my food blog. I would say I am on the computer for about one and a half hours a day. No biggie. It's while my kid is doing other things.

Well, the washing machine is calling out to this Domestic Goddess. Good thing it's only one day out of the week.

Thanks to all who have stopped by the other blog. I love to cook and share what we are eating. It's just a day in the life of our family.

Check you out later....

Here You Go!

Okay, so I guess I will provide you the link to my other blog. It is called Hungry For More. I talk about food - restaurant food, food I cook, and in the future I will talk about other food related things. The link is also to the right.

My job has opened my eyes to the wonderful world of food. You see it now more than ever on television. People are always talking about it. In my job, it's all I am constantly working around.

So, there you have it. I don't have a lot of entries, but it's a good start. If you don't find me here, I will be over there.

Thanks for your interest. It makes me feel good.

Hey there! Sorry I've been gone. I have been on Facebook and working on another blog of mine. It's a food blog. I am doing several reviews on restaurants in and around our area. I love it!

I have not heard anything more about the position I applied for. My boss is going to Cinci this week and won't be back until Friday. So, I will have to wait another week.

I am off today and heading to the store for groceries. Hope you all have a great Sunday!

I've got a day off tomorrow. I am taking Josh's niece shopping for her birthday. Should be a very fun day!

I applied for a store manager position this week. It's not something I will be in the running for, but I wanted to get my name in there so my company knows I am wanting to move forward. Every little bit helps.

Not much going on lately. I have been on Facebook quite a bit. It can get quite addictive. I just wish it would show who comes by my page. It would be nice to see who is stopping by.

Well, not much more to say. Hope you all have a great weekend!

Not In Any Particular Order Today

My yearly evaluation is coming up in about two weeks. I have already completed my part of the evaluation. This one was the easiest I have ever done. Probably because I don't really care. They are all the same, plus I have a boss who is doesn't seem to care. So, I just don't really care either.

It took me two long hours to do. Yes, it's that detailed. My company doesn't ever want to do things simple. Everything is always complicated, with notes of political bull crap here and there. It gets old pretty fast.

I have a really good friend who is getting "another" tattoo. He has two or three of them now. I was present when he got the Pisces sign on his arm. It's pretty cool. I have been contemplating on getting one myself, but thinking about having it for the reeeesssttt of my life is enough to make me say, uh no! Nevertheless, I am envious of his. We have been friends for about 8 years now. He's a cool guy.

Well, I am off today. I am getting my hair done, cut and color. Not in that order though. She colors first, then cuts. I have the feeling my hairdresser only likes to do color and is intimidated to cut my long hair. Six weeks ago I made her cut 6 inches off the back and she was a little reluctant. My hair is still really long. It comes right below my bra strap in the back. It was almost to my waist before. I think I am going to get another couple of inches taken off for spring. Well, that's if we can get past the threat of snow every other day here in Kansas!

Anywhoooo. I better get around here. Have an awesome Sunday! Mine will be filled with lovely household chores. woo. hoo.

Wednesday, April 01, 2009

It's a late post. Only because I can't sleep. I cleaned out my car today, took the kid shopping for some clothes, went for ice cream, took a nap, etc, etc.

It was a pretty standard day off. There really isn't much going on in my world. Maybe that is the reason why I don't have the urge to blog. There is nothing to talk about. I need something stimulating in my life to get me going. I need a hobby.

Well, that's all I got folks. Hope you are having better luck writing about things than I am.
