Fun Friday

23 Mar

So no fitness to report on – yes I am a slacker – so how about some fun?

Here are a couple of blogs I like recently – they are fun, enlightening, and I like them!

http://25by20five.com/ – 25X25 – she has some funny stuff and her recent post on what she thinks about when she runs – hysterical.  I might try to do this once – that is motivation to run!

http://diane-owens.com/ – In My Own Opinion – she is asking herself a question a day for a year. She hits on some great topics, and some things I would actually like to try!

http://davidkanigan.com/2012/03/22/life-goal-aid-or-blocker/ – Lead.Learn.Live – this post made me laugh as I have been on the internet all morning. Can you say slow day?

My husband started school – this is always interesting. He needs complete silence and no interruptions or his mood becomes unpleasant.  I, on the other hand, learned to multi-task. Just sayin’

I think I can see this being one day during the week where I find something for the girls and I to do outside the house.  This may also lead into something on the weekend as well. I want him to do well and I think he will do great if I can just give him what he needs to succeed. A room with padded walls and silence 🙂

I find I have tendencies like my mother – most would say this is normal and I should get over it. um, have you met mine?  I love my mom, I do. I just don’t want to be like her. She shows favoritism to my brother, my nephew, and my husband. Might I remind you she has two grand daughters, two daughter, and a daughter-in-law.  Yeah – she will deny it but she thinks the boys walk on water and me and my female counterparts are pond scum. It is the truth, I swear it.  My husband has been given permission to tell me I am acting like her so I can change immediately. 

I once bought two super cute shirts from JC Penny and immediately took them back when he stated I looked like her. Nice.

Have you ever read a book that is awful but you won’t give up reading it? That was me until yesterday when I finally finished it. I love Janet Evanovich and her Stephanie Plum books – they are funny. I decided to venture to another series of hers called Metro Girl and Motor Mouth is next. It took me forever to get through this book. It took like 300 pages to build up to a 3 page play out. Not good.  The first part of the book could have taken 200 pages and the ending could have been another 100. Oh well, that is why I am not a writer.  I also think the only reason she made money on this book is because people loved her other books and assumed this would be good to.

Packing my lunch – This is what I do now. I am trying to really reign in on spending that is so unnecessary. I pack my lunch as much as I am not a huge fan of it. I can eat leftovers once – not much more than that though.  It also helps that I meal plan and prep now as much as I can so the fact that I don’t have anything extra to do for my lunch makes me happy. Last night I did have to put together the meatloaf and throw it in a pan – but that is the most I have done all week. Totally worth the payoff in my mind. I think I may still buy every once in a while to reward myself, but it won’t be once or twice a week like some do.

The library – my new-found love. Especially since I can reserve everything online – CD’s, DVD’s and my books. Then when I go to pick them up I can gander at all the new arrivals and book shelves to get things I didn’t know about! I enjoy this as I don’t have to buy anything and I can still enjoy it like I did! It kind of kills the shopping addiction without actually killing it! 

Shopping addiction – I think I have one. Nothing major that costs me thousands, but it is where my $5 here goes to and my $10 there. I found the other day when I got mad I went straight to a shopping website and starting putting things in a shopping cart. I never ended up buying, but it made me feel like I had. This also in turn had me turn to the library so I could things and then bring them back when the buyer’s remorse” wore off.  Kinda silly – but I think I have made a break through with this one!

My kids – I read a book about a drunk driver tearing apart a family. A daughter and a husband were killed leaving a mother and her other daughter. It made me cry the entire 3 beginning chapters. I love my girls like no other and I hope they grow to understand that.  It makes me want to cuddle them at night, let them sleep in bed with us, sleep in later, eat cereal at all time, and just enjoy them. Now I realize I need to parent them and make them understand that no means no, but I also want them to know they are always loved.  Now to find balance in doing all of that 🙂

 

Is that enough for now? 🙂

    1. a) I am totally judging the Britney. Though thinking about my running playlist, maybe I shouldn’t.
    b) This reminds me of when Petra & I were doing the writing prompts that we fizzled out on after, what 5 questions?
    c) That is ME!!!
    2. Yay Nick! Yeah, mine can’t do anything without the tv on. Um, mostly…
    3. Same here except it’s my dad, and I don’t know at what point I started looking more like him than my mom, but I am not too thrilled with that. I mean, he was a nice looking man, but the key word there is man… 😉
    4. No. If it’s bad, I put it down and move on.
    5. I normally pack mine because there is no option for healthy eating in Spring Lake.
    6. I was underwhelmed both my the Chatham County library in Pittsboro and the Lee County library on Hawkins in Sanford.
    7. I am as bad about wanting to shop to feel better as I was to eat. I’m bad to nickle and dime us when we can’t afford it. :-/
    8. Courageous got to me like that.

    No, that is not enough. Blog for me too. 😉
