GO PACK GO!!!!!!!

Wednesday, January 12, 2011


All this snow is now beginning to get annoying. We don't have as much as they do in Boston but it's been hanging around here all week and what was once pretty and white is now grayish black sludge and to be honest it is starting to pull me into the grayish black mood zone. Plus, the black ice makes driving frustrating...grrrrrr.

AND it's not supposed to warm up past freezing until Sunday. Fab.

Fragments for Friday!

Mommy's Idea

Welcome to Friday Fragments, the fantastic brain child of Mrs. 4444's over at Half Past Kissin' Time! Purge yourself of all those little tidbits that aren't quite deserving of their own post or do like I do and collect these little morsels of blogginess all week to spill them all right here. Head over to Mrs. 4444's blog to check out the rules, link up your own fragments AND check out the fragments of other awesome bloggers!

I would like to send a kick in the face big thank you to Jillian for reminding me that even though I've lost some poundage I am still out of shape. I was sending death rays into the tv last night during 30 Day Shred. I didn't quit though, even though it crossed my mind about 108 times! Apparently, I forgot how much I hated her and let her bust my butt again tonight! I did notice that during the squats w/punches it puts me at the perfect level where my punches look like they're connecting with her face. That brought some satisfaction.

Cannot WAIT for Mr. Ski to get home from his mini trip! :) I've missed him lots! He's home!!!! :) He had such a great time catching up with some of his brothers (in arms) and apparently there were many war stories told, much catching up and the solidifying of a bond that will never be broken. These guys make my heart smile, they have sacrificed much for this country (and continue to do so) and I'm so proud to know them.

I'm super proud that I have blogged 6 days (counting today) in a row...that must be a record for me! I will probably be back to once every 2 weeks by next week but I'm certainly going to try to be more diligent.

I really hate to drag on about this Jillian thing but ya'll you all it's like she knows precisely when I can't do anymore and then she says..."in 5, 4, 3, 2..." and I know I can do five more of anything.

So..they're calling for snow. I seriously doubt it will be that big of a deal in our area but if it does snow it best be gone by Monday...our busy season is fast approaching and I need to get ahead of schedule before I can get behind!

I don't know about you guys...but I am ready for this weekend. So I'm off to snuggle in comfy clothes with my love and stay away from all the fools rushing to the grocery for milk and bread! Stay safe ya'll you all! (Yes, I realize that technically I am still saying the mashed version of you all but striking it out does make me realize how often I say it!)

Fair Warning Below...

I'm in one of those moods and I'm feeling like a bit of a negative Nelly tonight so if you're having a Pollyanna kind of day then you might want to skip on over this one.* It isn't by coincidence that all these little tidbits begin with "Hates when..."

-Hates when I watch commercials on something that's been recorded on the dvr. What a waste of 3 minutes.

-Hates when I forget to scrape my frost-covered side mirrors...and don't notice until I'm hurling down the interstate at 73 70mph. What's worse is knowing that they are covered in frost and still trying to use them.

-Hates that the neighbors across the way feel the need to slam their car doors so loud I have a panic attack because I think someone is closing their door in my driveway. Guess they think I need the know, because I have to run to the bedroom and peek out the window to ensure they are just being rough with their doors instead of the horrific possibility that someone would be here unannounced. (Oh and my fear of people knocking on my door is unexplainable...I would like to blame that on the robbery but I've always been nervous about people showing up with no notice so who knows where that comes from.)

-Hates cliff-hanger facebook statuses, either spill the beans or don't. Period. And on that note...I also hate it when people go from "married" to "single" and eventually (after cooling down) back to "married" might as well post a status that says "I'm pissed off at my spouse and I'm overreacting by changing my relationship status." Since I'm not just ranting I will offer a suggestion to those who do that...wait at least 12 hours, preferably 24 hours, after an argument before changing your relationship status.
Sidebar: How sad is it that most kids will never not know what Facebook's like an epidemic.

-Hates when I can't see past the things that are bothering me.

*That statement was made like I actually have more readers than my husband, mother and father. Heaven forbid my imaginary readers be down about my negative outlook today. that idea did make me laugh so there's a bonus.

Overreaction 101

On the way to visit a friend our plans fell through so I made a u-turn (a legal one) and headed back home. I had seen headlights coming from the direction I was turning but I had plenty of time to complete my turn and be on my merry way. The lights stood out to me for some odd reason...they were square, dimly lit and pretty eerie.

I'd forgotten about those lights until I turned down the main street that our neighborhood is off of and noticed that those same, square dimly lit headlights were still behind me. Panic set in.

Are those the same lights? Have they been following me? If I turned here (the way to my house) would they turn to? What would I do then? OMG, it's a creeper van (you know the ones..from the 80's with no windows on the sides, used mostly for making out with girls or as a main form of transportation for serial killers).

Well, I'm certainly not turning there...maybe they'll turn down one of these streets. And no, they're still behind me.

Am I overreacting? Should I turn into this neighborhood? Should I wait and turn onto the road that loops around? What do I do if they turn then too? Should I get on the interstate and go up one exit and take another route home?

Ok, well if he hasn't turned before the loop around I'll turn there.

Should I put on my signal? No? Yes? No?

Eeek...putting on the signal, turning, waiting....staring in the rear lights. SHEW!

So, basically I drove in the opposite direction of my house because I was afraid of a creeper van. How pathetic is that?! And that is why this girl lady should not watch scary movies.

Drum roll please....

In case you didn't know or if you wanted to confirm what the answer was to my "QUICK! Name that movie!!" question yesterday the answer is...

"ANNIE!" and she said the famed line: "(She thinks you're) the greatest thing since sliced bread!" while taking a swim with Mr. Warbucks in his pool. (That doesn't sound creepy at all...)

Today's been pretty humdrum. Nothing out of the ordinary...yet.

I hope your day has been fantastic!

What I'm thinking...

Just trying out something new...not that the whole blog isn't about what I think...but anywho:

=> I think that the reason people fail at dieting is because they are convinced that dieting sucks. Which if you think that dieting means not eating anything you like then I guess it does suck. My kind of dieting, which has been fairly successful (33 pounds and counting), doesn't suck all of the time. For the most part I still eat what I want, I just limit myself to smaller amounts. That and I have stopped skipping breakfast and have started eating oatmeal instead, thanks to Mr. Ski for that one!

=> I think that the newest edition to my hometown newspaper website, appropriately called "Arrested!" is the greatest thing since sliced bread... QUICK! Name that movie!! :) If that movie title came too quickly then answer me this...where was that line stated??

=> After stating the "I think" above I must say....I think it's insane (and disgusting) that more than 3 people were arrested on Christmas Day for prostitution.

=> I think that meeting someone who is more pessimistic than I am (I actually consider myself a realist but it so often is interpreted to be pessimism) is quite refreshing. So the next time someone calls me out for being negative I will just console myself by least I'm not as pessimistic as so in so.

=> I think that everyone should get a FitBit, for lots of reasons but mainly because the sleep data is so interesting. For instance, I woke up 23 times (not good) last night and took 33 steps between 3:45 and 4 am...wonder where I was going? And no, it wasn't to the bathroom. There's a FitBit post in the works, I just know ya'll you all are excited! :)

=> I think I would move if I lived in the town in Arkansas that had 5,000 dead birds fall from the sky. Uh, creepy AND gross.

=> I think it's hilarious that the gym is already starting calm down...guess those resolutions did last that long! I mean I thought it would be busy for at least a week...

=> I think that there are not enough words to express how thankful I am for my sweet, amazing, awesome, loving, caring, handsome, smart, funny, cute, thoughtful husband and my incredible loving family plus, I have some pretty stellar friends. I'm one lucky girl lady!

=> I think I'll end what I'm thinking with one of my very favorite jokes :) And hopefully this is the first time I've shared this one:
"An escalator can never can only become stairs. You would never see an "Escalator Temporarily Out Of Order" sign, just "Escalator Temporarily Stairs. Sorry for the convenience." -Mitch Hedberg
Hahahahaha, that joke makes me laugh every. single. time.
