I cannot wait! In about 12 hours, I’ll be sinking into some theater seating, popcorn in hand, to catch up on the “lives” of Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte and Samantha. I came to the show later than most– it was already off the air before I started watching it. I got all the DVDs from Netflix, and watched the entire series in just a few weeks! I still watch the reruns when they run on Fox late at night, and I’m definitely looking forward to seeing where the characters are at now. The movie supposedly picks up with them 4 years after the end of the television show.

This is the question that I’ve been asking myself (and anyone who will listen ) all week long. I don’t know what it is about short work weeks, but they always manage to feel a million times longer than regular weeks. Don’t get me wrong, I am not going to complain about a day off, but I just don’t understand why having Monday off makes Tuesday-Friday seem so much more stressful! All I could think today was “I need a vacation.” But what I really want is a nice long trip… the kind that requires a passport… go see some more of the world, and just get as far away from here as possible for awhile. Unfortunately, I don’t have the money or the time for that. Not to mention someone else to travel with!
In the meantime, I suppose I’ll just be satisfied with the fact that tomorrow IS Friday. I’m headed to see Sex and the City with a group of friends, and I’m excited about that. If the movie sucks, I’ll be sorely disappointed because we’ve all been looking forward to it. I’ll probably be pretty busy all weekend, but hopefully it will be a good one. Though, I’d still like a re-do on last weekend. Can that be done?
Has it really been since Wednesday that I last wrote over here? It’s not that I had nothing to say… I was even supposed to write about Circuit City coupons about a week ago. Oops! I had every intention of taking and posting a picture yesterday for Self Portrait Sunday, but then it was later in the day before I even took a shower, and I just let the rest of the day get away from me. That’s been the problem all week I think… I have good intentions, but then I just let the day get away. I’ve been preoccupied with other things, and writing over here just seems like work lately. After all the stress of having my blogs deactivated, and trying to get them back, I think I got a little bit burnt out.
So what are your plans for this Memorial Day? I won’t be headed to the cemetery today, but I did stop by last night. I couldn’t sit still, and when I get like that, I drive. Yes, even with the insane gas prices. So I drove by the cemetery… my grandpa died 11 years ago, and I’ve been avoiding the cemetery for the past decade. I decided it was time to go out there.
This morning, I need to leave the house in about an hour. Mom and Harold are taking Killian to the Memorial Day parade this morning, and I think I’m going to tag along with them. Cause I might be 24 years old, but I still like the parade, and it wasn’t very much fun to sit out there by myself last year. Besides, if I know Killian (and I’ve met him once or twice before ) an extra pair of hands for wrangling the toddler is never a bad idea!
There’s a family get together scheduled for this afternoon, and I still need to make the requested No Bake Cookies before then. So that’s my plan for today… I hope you get to spend some time with your families, and take some time to remember the men and women who made this possible for you.
I’ just sitting here watching the American Idol Finale so I thought I’d check in. Actually, I’m mostly fast forwarding through the finale, thank God for Tivo. I’m about to catch up with the broadcast though, I’ve skipped such a large chunk of the show. Only a half an hour or so until they reveal the actual results, and I’m still rooting for David Cook. I could definitely do without the whole top 12 singing… for the most part, their performances are just reminding me of why they didn’t make it all the way to the top.
Anyways, as the title suggests, I’m finally feeling almost human again. I still don’t feel GREAT, and I’m sure my boss is tired of hearing me cough all freaking day long, but it’s getting much better! Slowly but surely the plague is working its way out of my system. Now, if I could just manage to get some decent sleep…
I’m not sure whether I’m talking about my sinuses or my computer because that statement fits for both of them. Actually, the computer was behaving slightly better this morning, so I might not need a computer rental after all. We’ll see how it’s doing when I get home from work.
The sinuses, on the other hand, need to be fired. I hardly slept all night… I literally saw every hour go by, and I was actually out of bed for about an hour and a half in the middle of the night. Between my nose that plugged up and refused to clear, and the hacking cough, I certainly woke up feeling like hell. I was coughing so hard, I was afraid I was going to throw up! Actually when I was awake and staring at the clock at 2 am, I was considering the merits of calling off sick. In the end I decided that if I’m going to suffer, I might as well get paid for it. Fingers crossed that the good drugs keep me slightly sane over the course of today!
Sorry guys, no Self Portrait today… I feel lousy, but that’s not why. My computer has decided to be completely uncooperative today, and I don’t know why. In the meantime though, I just can’t be bothered waiting for a picture to upload. You can blame my computer if you’re upset that you don’t get to see me in all my stuffy, raw-nosed glory today.
I’ve spent this weekend being completely unproductive because I just feel lousy. My nose has stayed all stuffed up, and my sinuses have been draining. Plus, between the constant nose-blowing and the drying effect of the decongestants, I’ve had to deal with nosebleeds too! All of this has also translated into a sore throat and a cough. I tell you what though, if I don’t start feeling better soon, I certainly won’t be needing any weight loss pills… I haven’t had an appetite at all. This afternoon I had to force myself to find something for lunch because it was after 3pm and all I’d had to eat was a bowl of Cheerios and an apple. And this was after having gotten up at 5:30am.
I feel like I spent the whole weekend just moving from the bed to the couch to the computer chair. I did take a nap this afternoon, and I hope that doesn’t come back to bite me when it’s time for bed. Work tomorrow is non-optional, no matter how I’m feeling, so sleeping tonight would definitely be a good thing. I hope y’all had a more productive, healthful weekend than I did!
My sinuses are so stuffed up that I am just completely miserable. Don’t need a clinical laboratory service to tell me that I’m in serious need of a decongestant… Actually, I just took some night cold medicine and will probably be going to bed when my TV show is over, or when the meds kick in, whichever comes first.
Sorry for the lack of exciting updates lately… between the things I can’t/don’t want to blog about and the amount of snot exiting my body, I feel like there are no thoughts in my head.
Nothing too exciting in Chez Footprints tonight, but I just have one question for you all. It’s very deep, and very important. Are you ready??
Do you brush your teeth, then floss? Or do you floss and then brush? Which is the correct way to do it?
As you can see, I’ll hardly be able to sleep at night until I know the answer.
I’m just sitting here watching American Idol, and I thought I’d check in. I’m totally rooting for David Cook, and so far in the show, I’m sticking with that. Though, Syesha is singing Fever, and she’s strutting around the bass player. Am I the only one who thinks he kind of had a look on his face that said “oh my god, stop touching me”?
Anyways… I’m having a hard time wanting to write on my blog lately… the whole debacle with having them deactivated has left a bit of a bad taste in my mouth. Then I had to upgrade to 2.5, the dashboard is completely changed and I don’t like it one bit. So I click over here because I’m supposed to write about medicare supplement and all I can think is ew, I don’t like this one bit!
In the meantime, my eyelids are getting heavy… I don’t know if I’m going to make it through the rest of American Idol tonight. I might just press pause on the tivo and watch the rest in the morning. Have to watch the whole show though because I have to be able to discuss it with my boss at work in the morning! LOL
Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there reading this. I took this picture right after I got home from grocery shopping this morning. Can you tell that I was soaking wet from having to carry groceries in the rain? Okay, you might notice the rain drops on my sweatshirt, but can you tell that I was still trying to catch my breath from RUNNING back and forth from the car to the building and up a flight of stairs? LOL
Have you all had a good holiday, and have you called your mother? I saw my mom when I went over to use her washer and dryer so I wouldn’t have to go to work naked in the morning. Then we met Ryan, Ash-lee and Killian at Ponderosa for lunch/dinner. Good times… Killian was YELLING at the top of his lungs in the restaurant to get everyone’s attention so he could grin and flirt with them. Booger.
Now I am really tired, so I’m going to go get some pajamas on and start thinking about bed… Monday morning just comes around so quickly! Don’t forget to check out Midlife Musings to see who else is playing along this week.
