What day is today?

Houston, we have a problem. I thought today was Thursday and well, it's not.

Last night as we were getting for bed and my mind was running through the next days events I told hubby to remember that he was on his own tomorrow with the boys for dinner, I have Game Night! He sleepily (he had just laid down and was half asleep but that's a whole other blog!) replied 'I thought that was on Thursday'. Yeah. Well, tomorrow's only Wednesday. Dang!

And I woke up this morning thinking (ergo problem: thinking before caffeine intake) again it was Thursday! Dang! Do you think I am looking forward to Game Night?

Now, some of you may be asking what is Game night and how old am I. Well, I'm 42 and yes, I play games; board games, card games with my girlfriends. We get together every so often and play for a few hours, eat and drink and hang out together. It's fabulous. Invariably we laugh! Extremely therapeutic! If you don't do it, you should. Start a game night. Have some fun! I think tonight, I mean tomorrow we are playing charades. It should be a hoot and a half!

What do you do when you are stressed? I do all sorts of things.

First and foremost, I eat. I am very good at that. This week I have gone through an entire bag of Jolly Ranchers hard candies. I even ate the grape ones and I don't like the grape ones.
I'm not talking the little rolls you impulse buy at the grocery checkout. I'm talking the big momma bag they sell in the candy aisle.

I also make lists. I make lists of things to do, things to get, things I want to read whatever, lists.
Another stress buster for me is cleaning, I shouldn't call it cleaning, it more like spring cleaning -even if it's not spring. You know, empty something out, go through the stuff, give stuff away, throw stuff out and organize back to where it was.

And then last but not least I start a new project. Well, I have done all those things the past 2 weeks. I have been bogged down with all of the above. My project du jour is organizing 7 years worth of photos and storing all of the assorted school and sports photos I have purchased over the past 12 (OMG-12!) years of my children.

My entire dinning room (chosen because of the ample surfaces available to cover) has been taken over by stacks of pictures. Loose pictures, envelopes of pictures and boxes of pictures. The sorting began. First just divvying them up by year and then getting the year in order. Then buying photo albums to start storing them. And that led me to my other new project; scrapbooking. Note: If you are easily addicted to things, do not start or even think about scrapbooking.

You will hear so much more about scrapbooking, I may have to consider changing the name of my blog to Gimme Scrap! LOL!

Rockin Girl Blog Tag

Oh my gosh! I was so excited that I got the badge thingy to appear, I forgot to tag people. Ok, now this will be a chore to make the links but I'll try.

The rules are: "If you get tagged, grab the pretty badge up top (because you deserve it!) and then list five women bloggers who are TOTALLY ROCKIN’."I have a lot more than five I can tag, but I didn't want to repeat someone already tagged by Sari, and I try to follow the rules! ;)

I'm tagging the following Rockin' Girl bloggers:

Well , the fonts are wierd and I just don't have the patience to keep messing with it. I need to be satisfied for now that they are tagged! Ok, now I need to go tell them that I tagged them. Geesh, this is a lot of work.



I DID IT! I DID IT! Sorry, was I yelling? But LOOK! I DID IT!
Ok, last night my girlfriend, who tagged me as a Rockin' Girl Blogger, called me to berate try to explain to me how to add that lovely button you see there because well, read previous post and you'll know. I tried again. I still couldn't do it! I didn't call her back because she would only try to berate help me some more and I wasn't in the mood. So, I got to work early this morning and gave it another try. I have also been trying to add a picture of the book I am reading on the sidebar- yeah- well, that's not happening either.
So, now it's lunch time and since I'm determined to get this, I tried again and yaowsa! it worked. I am so proud of myself!
Now, I can actually tag some others and maybe I'll learn to add pictures to my sidebar eventually.
Woo hoo! I'm rockin' now!

Today is my brother's birthday. He's turning 40 today.

WOW! That makes me feel old because he's my baby brother! I wish we lived closer and I could see him today to give him a great big hug but he's in Chicago. He's done good. He's married with a beautiful 5 year old daughter. In the past year they sold their townhouse and bought a house. It was great when he came down for a visit and I love going up to see them.

To think of all the mischief we got into as kids ( a lifetime ago) and to see him now being the responsible adult; wow, it just boggles the mind. I love him more than he'll ever know and I miss not having him near.

Happy Birthday to my baby brother!
If I was any good at posting pictures I would. Someday...

Bad Blogger

I've been a bad blogger. I didn't go anywhere. I just got lost in life and haven't blogged. I'm sure that my many (read 2) readers have given up on me. Oh, well. C'est la vie! I have lots of catching up to do and will work on that toute suite!

I have a bunch of memes to do and things to blog about. It was my birthday, yes I am a year wiser (BWAhaaahahahah!) I ran into an long time lost touch with friend. I started scrapbooking. GM has been in and out of the hospital refusing my help and declared that I am the devil incarnate. 17 pierced his ear. 14 has started cross-country training. I lost my agenda and that means I lost #s, birthday/anniversary info, lots of stuff and we will get to all of that I promise.

First mid-year resolution. I will be a better blogger. Stay tuned :)

Notes on caffeine

Last night I met with some girlfriends for coffee which is always a pleasant event. This time however, we started chatting and I didn't buy my coffee right away. Eventually I bought my Venti Latte (fully caffeinated) and drank the whole thing. I was up until 2 in the morning watching "The Starter Wife" and tossed and turned all night plus had to keep getting up to go to the bathroom. Today I feel hung over. Having a venti caffinated drink later than usual...stupid, stupid, stupid. Sometimes I need protection from my own self! It's gonna be a long day!
