Saturday 9: A Long December

1. Looking back at it now, how were your holidays and your time on New Year's Eve?
My grandfather had a seizure on Christmas day and this was the first holiday season without my grandma, so it was a little rough. My grandfather is stubborn, but after some convincing he let the paramedics check him out and he seemed to be "okay." I was less than convinced, but I did get ratted out by my aunt and yelled at by my grandfather for calling them. I so love my family. New Year's Eve was uneventful, so all in all my holidays were good.

2. Do you have any unusual collections?
I have a coin collection and the hubby and I have a bit of a gun collection, but nothing that I find unusual. Oh wait... I have the entire set of Disney characters that you could collect from McDonald's twelvish years ago... Is that unusual?

3. If you could train a machine to do one thing for you whenever you wanted, what would you have it do?
Does "clean my house" count as one thing? If so, that is what I want a machine to do for me... I hate cleaning!

4. What is one thing that makes you cry?
One thing that makes me cry... Hmm... Those faithful animal stories that I Stumble Upon on the internet always seem to get me.

5. What do you love to do on the weekend?
Barbeque! Relaxing at home with the hubby is my favorite. I would really love to go camping, but I am still working on the vessel for such an event.

6. Do you and your family get along?
Yes, we get along. My pops and I are super close and talk every other day. My mom and I are apparently not speaking right now, but it has never been a matter of not "getting along."

7. Have you ever gotten kicked out somewhere? If yes, do tell.
Thinking... thinking... not that I can recall at the moment.

8. Who do you normally turn to when you need to complain about something?
My bestest girl Jewelean... unless it is work related, then S gets to hear all about it since can sympathize (we work together).

9. What is the last thing you ordered on-line?
Thin crust veggie pizza with white sauce (it just went out for delivery). Yum yum!

Here is an image that caught my attention for one reason or another at some point in time:

I am not the religious type, so I may not be the best person to comment on this. But... it does seem to me that god often credit for the wonderful or beautiful things in life while being able to skirt responsibility for horrible ugly things. This cartoon reminded me of this...

So what are your thoughts?

Wednesday Wickedness: Angelina Jolie

I keep meaning to participate in this meme and as always I keep procrastinating. But this week I saw a picture of Angelina (one of my favorite actresses) and I figured that there is no better time than the present:

1. “All women do have a different sense of sexuality, or sense of fun, or sense of like what's sexy or cool or tough.” What do you do to feel sexy?

Recently... working out has been helping me feel sexy again... (as I blow off my workout for the night)

2. “I don't think the money people in Hollywood have ever thought I was normal, but I am dedicated to my work and that's what counts.” Do you think people think you are normal?

I don't even think I know anybody who could define normal.

3. “If you ask people what they've always wanted to do, most people haven't done it. That breaks my heart.” What have you always wanted to do?

Go skydiving and learn to surf... I should probably work on that.

4. “There's something about death that is comforting. The thought that you could die tomorrow frees you to appreciate your life now.” What do you appreciate the most about your life at this time?

Even though I get wrapped up in petty shit sometime (especially recently when it comes to work) at the end of the day, I simply appreciate my life. I have a job I really love and a husband I am proud to be a wife to. We have built something simply amazing.

5. “Where ever I am I always find myself looking out the window wishing I was somewhere else.” If you could be somewhere else, where would you be and why?

In my hubby's arms right now. On vacation would work well too.

6. “I need more sex, OK? Before I die I wanna taste everyone in the world.” Have you ever felt that you need more sex to be happier?

More sex never hurt my happiness level, that is for sure.

7. “If I make a fool of myself, who cares? I'm not frightened by anyone's perception of me.” Have you ever made a fool of yourself? If yes, spill.

A time or two I am sure, typically these times involved more alcohol than I care to remember (not an excuse) and the edges are a bit fuzzy.

8. “I don't believe in guilt, I believe in living on impulse as long as you never intentionally hurt another person, and don't judge people in your life. I think you should live completely free.” How often do you feel guilty?

I am not a big believer in guilt and regret. If you feel guilty, fix it. ** A Scott and Aimee song lyric is now playing in my head... "I used to be Catholic, but now I'm just guilty" - damn I love that woman. **

9. “I never like being touched, ever. People used to say I held my breath when they were hugging me. I still do.” Are you ever uncomfortable being touched?

I can be a very touchy feely person, the type that greet people with hugs instead of handshakes. Some people really creep me out though and then I completely understand the discomfort. I try to be mindful of others comfort level with being touched.

10. “Oh, God, I struggle with low self-esteem all the time! I think everyone does. I have so much wrong with me, it's unbelievable!” Give us an example of what you’ve done when feeling low self-esteem.

First, I give into it with ridiculous results, and then I tell myself to pull it together and fix it or shut up about. This would be why I am on my workout plan (I know the one I blew off tonight). I believe that if you don't like something in your life than you should fix it and if you choose not to fix it you really don't dislike it.

Mindless Monday #1

So... I am going to admit once and for all that this blogging thing is really, really, really difficult for me. I triple guess everything that I plan to post and then decide that it is not "good" enough to be posted and hit the delete. To be honest most days my ideas for a post don't even get to the click clack of the keyboard before they are deleted. This is one of the things I do and the main reason I have such a difficult time writing papers for classes. I edit before even writing anything. So I am attempting to accept the fact that this blog does not have to be "good" enough for anything. It is mine and I can type up what ever gobbly goop that I please. And I just might...

Well another four months have passed and I have no idea where I stand with my list of 1001 things to do or if I even have any days left to do them in. I will evaluate and adjust this list soon. I have been working out damn near daily for the past three weeks and am half way through the Slim in 6 program from Beach Body. A huge thank you to Roxy for the video!! I actually am starting to believe I can see some results as slight as they may be.

Work is crazy and I am not sure how much longer I can even attempt to bite my tongue working in such close proximity to a man with a huge God complex... But the hubby says I need to start shutting down work mode after five pm, so I will stop that rant mid-thought or I will never manage to get to bed.

Bed... That is my next mission... Right after I write a check, clean Bob's ear (no that will be in the morning), and grab a gulp of water. Wow, bed actually sounds really inviting right this minute, which is a bit of a surprise since the hubby isn't yelling down the hall at me to come to bed. I truly hate when he is out of town, not only do I miss him more than I love turning the AC up to a respectable temperature, but sleep seems to escape me the moment I kiss him goodbye. Go figure, but more on that later because this is the end of my Mindless Monday rant.
