Okay, so Zumba? 1. OH. MY. GOD! My body has never sweat that much in it’s entire life. 2. When we walked in we stumbled upon the Z. B.’s (Zumba Bitches) They don’t smile. They don’t look your way. They don’t say “hi”, even when you say “hi” first. Z.B’s suck. Oh, and they don’t sweat either. Yes, they’re THAT cool. 3. The...
I just signed up for a Zumba class. OMG, Who am I?
I Can See Clearly Now...
Mirrors. We have one in every room. Some have two or three or more… Bathroom mirrors, closet door mirrors, make-up mirrors, little decorative mirrors, great big mirrors, even an antique mirror, from my grandma’s old farmhouse, that now resides in my dining room. Oh and there are mirrors in the halls. I even have one of those angled three-way mirrors from an old department store....
This hot water is great. I bet it would be even better if I’d remembered to put coffee in it! Happy Sunday.
Huzzah! We are a “space junk free zone”. No space junk has landed here. Carry on. (i woulda been pissed, if it landed in my kitchen and broke my favorite coffee mug!)
Still painting the family room. I’m at the “I like this color”, “I don’t know if I like this color”, “I like this color” phase. There’s no turning back. I guess that means I should probably like this color, eh? Happy Thursday…Paint Fume Edition.
Dad: 100% Polish Mom: German, French and English That’s a lot of Polish. Lemon Pledge, I would assume.
You know that thing where you can tell everyone else how to decorate their home and what color to paint it, but you don’t have a clue about your own? I have that. Currently painting my family room. Again.
*Innocent Look On Face*
Aaaaand I completely missed trash day. Holy smokes, I totally suck at being in charge. (I may or may not have done it on purpose. Well, did I mention how much I hate trash day??)
My Parents Music~Theme Song
I don’t really know my mom’s favorite song. She has a fondness for Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Mitch Miller, and the like. She LOVES the music, …But along with this love for music, comes a passion for dancing. And I’m here to tell you, she can cut a rug!! Now, for those of you who’ve been playing along, in the home version of my tumblr show, you know that we lost my...
Things I’m Happy About Sunday: My sister skyped me from Arizona and I drank the last Summer Shandy with her. Good-bye Summer Shandy. See ya next year. Claudia is supposed to have her baby in one week!! ONE WEEK!!! The baby countdown begins. (I can’t believe there isn’t a baby pool yet) I bought all kinds of fabulous jewelry from the flea market. For less than the price of a...
My middle name is Ann. We only use it when I’m being bad. (we’ve used it a lot)
Welp, ‘The Man’ just took off for another business trip. Guess who’s in charge of Trash Day again??? Oh sweet mother of pearl, I hate taking out the trash!
Ohhhh Marrrk, I was just at a flea market and they had crates of LP’s!!! (immediately thought of you)
I just realized today was my dad’s birthday. He would’ve been 93. (whoa) He died when he was 49. Hard to believe he’s been gone 44 years!! Forty four years. I’m not going to say that I think about him every day, because I don’t now, but every now and then when he comes to mind, it always brings a smile to my face. He was a great guy. Too bad he couldn’t have...
The mail came. There’s something about your son getting his *own* dental and medical health insurance cards, for the very first time, that makes you feel all tingly and proud inside. Yay for raising independent kids!! On another note… I miss my kids.
Play It Again Sam
I lost 4 pounds this week. Don’t get all excited. It’s the same 4 pounds I lost last week and gained back over the weekend. Oh look, It’s the weekend again! It’s a vicious circle people… A vicious circle.
Sarah has renewed my need to listen to mass quantities of Fiona Apple. Thanks Sarah. Oh Fiona, I have missed you!
Oh Bath & Body Works...
Every day I get emails of all the sales at BB&W. Today it is candles: Marshmallow Fireside- Toasted marshmallows and sweet vanilla cream wrapped in the aroma of rich smoldering woods. Rich smoldering woods, you say? I’ve been told, the smoke from the Minnesota wildfire is looming over Michigan today. Now all’s I need is toasted marshmallows and some sweet vanilla cream and BAM,...
And The Award Goes To...
Well I would like you all to know that I am once again “in charge” of this palatial estate, and today is Wednesday, and guess who remembered to take out the trash last night? Mmm hmm! *nodding head* It was me!! Okay, where’s my prize? **For all of you not playing along: Last week I forgot to do it. (Dang yo, two weeks of trash is heavy!) ***Now I think I deserve an even...
At the pool all day. (gonna be the last nice day for a while) Happy Monday everybody!!
I dunno why they call it a hangover. I don’t (well maybe a little bit) want to hang myself, but I do want it to be over. *I’ll just be over here, laying down, with a hot towel on my head. P.S. Drink responsibly. Also, do as I say, not as I do.
Went to an Ox Roast. I did not see one ox roasted. I drank a lot of beer, saw a lot of people i knew, and won a dead goldfish. Seriously, my girlfriend won a princess crown, and i got a little dead goldfish. No, it wasn’t real. It was plastic. You want it? That’s what you get when you’re a grown ass adult and somebody makes you play at the duck pond game. A FRIGGEN DEAD...
And yes, I have a glo-stick in my hair. It’s my headband.
Okay confetti people. That was cute for about second. Now I think I’m gonna have a seizure.
Your Mission, Should You Choose To Accept It
So, I only had ONE thing to do, while ‘the man’ was gone: “Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to take out the trash on Trash Day”. Now granted, this is not my favorite job, task, mission, whatever you want to call it, but nonetheless, this is something I know, if I put my mind to it, I can do, Captain! Nobody said it was going to be easy. Nobody ever does....
It’s 48 degrees out. I can’t even pretend to like this. I do, however, look better with more clothes on. So there’s that.
‘The Oldest Boy’ and ‘The Man’ are at the “Big House” watching the Michigan/Western game. They are rooting for Western. (sorry Danielle and Sarah) Also, lightning delay. P.S. Wipe that disgusted look off your face… Your team is winning.
I love when the Sam’s Club tries to sell me diamonds. Cause “you’re a fricken warehouse, not a jewelry store, Sam’s!” When I want a 500 pack of ice cream sandwiches, you’re the one I want to see. But, if I get an engagement ring from you? This marriage will never work. P.S. I’m already married. The ring didn’t come from Sam’s. The marriage is...
After about 18 years in the making… today the golf course behind us finally opened. Guys, they even have little yellow flags on all the greens. It’s official.
