Chapped Lips, & Chicken Shoot

Today was awesome – seriously. I started the day off WAY too early, but I had to in order to get to Norfolk in time for a spouse motivational workshop (the speaker was Jacey Eckhardt!!) – I’m sure I will be super blogging about it on my other blog so I’m not going into details here. Just stay tuned – lots of information for me to sort though!

I got mail from Team Mom – another awesome freaking review to do. I’ve got about 6 others for Parent Reviews. I love love love my job – but I think I’m going nuts this week. I will get them all done in the next couple days – I promise!!!

Hubby got MAIL today! He ordered a neat game for the Wii called “Chicken Shoot” – he bought it for Xander obviously since the kid needs a game that HE can play. It looks super cute (Alan was playing it today) but Xander will get to try it out tomorrow so we shall see he he fares. We also got a new gun thingy for the Wii called a “Wii Perfect Shot Gun.” It’s neat I guess. I mean, my husband is certainly enjoying it. He put Xander to bed and he’s right back to shooting the bird the chickens!

On the crappy side of life; it goes from hot to cold around here now and my nose is running and my lips are super chapped. Ugh … this is the sucky part of the season change.

Nine Days to Payday

… and I’ve overdrawn my account already! OOPS!! I need to rework my budget and get it a whole lot tighter. I’ve been spending so much money lately – call it “retail therapy” I guess. Problem is; I’m not making as much – so I really need to quit. If I were to just start making some things to sell on Etsy instead of TALKING about making things to sell on Etsy I think I’d be okay. It’s pure laziness on my part. I cannot even think about another balance transfer or look into more debt consolidation loans – I just need to cut back or make more. I’m not making any MORE lately; so I guess the “correct” answer is to cut back. But cutting back is just no fun. Eating is, and having electricity is … so … there you have it folks.

So, So Cold

I think we need to get a heater in this living room. Or else, buy some more wood and start the day with a fire because it’s really cold in here!! It’s 28 degrees outside and I already froze my arse off letting the dog out and in, and now I am sitting in the living room, on the couch, with a blanket on my legs. I desperately need to do dishes and since the dishwasher doesn’t want to wash them I have to and in order to do that I have to finish putting away the dishes first. Blah. I asked hubby to do either the putting away or the washing and I know he heard me because he asked me “do you really want me to do them” and I said “yes, please do” and they still didn’t get done. I don’t know why I waited the 2 days I did waiting for him to do them since I know unless I “nag” him he won’t. I try to NOT “nag” him and he doesn’t listen to that. The only time he pays attention is when I am yelling or crying. It’s really ridiculous.

I made Xander some oatmeal for breakfast and I’m thinking of making a bowl for me also. Tis the season for oatmeal. I think cranking up the crock pot and making a big batch would be nice also – that Irish Steel Cut stuff I keep hearing about. It’s supposed to be super healthy and taste yum-o!

Okay, so order of business today: warm up, dishes & laundry. It would be nice to get the living room cleaned up and the table cleaned off.

On another note, have you checked out Gamefly yet? I’d never heard of them before, but I was cruising for games on the cheap for my Playstation 2 and my Game Cube (which are the game systems I have) and realized that Gamefly was like Netflix for console gamers. (I also found some Gamefly coupons on CouponChief!) I figured it might be fun to get back into my console games … I’m not buying a new one any time soon.

I’ve Got Nothing

I was trying to come up with a witty title for this post, but I just couldn’t. So, the list I posted earlier today? A lot got done, which is awesome. I almost found the floor to our bedroom even! Well, okay, I found half the floor. The rest is still covered with tons of junk, clothing and boxes. Hopefully, I will be able to finish it tomorrow. Alan did the dishes which I appreciate, but I wish he’d fully washed some of the things and not just kinda washed them (like, hello greasy tupperware top) … ew! I did around 5 or 6 loads of laundry today, so of course only half of it is put away, the rest is thrown over the bed.

What else? Apparently, there’s a new RAMBO movie. Isn’t Sly Stallone a little, er, old? I mean, I guess since they made a new Rocky movie they feel the need to resurrect Stallone’s alter-ego Rambo also? Is it a remake? I mean, it’s called Rambo – not Rambo part 87 right? I dunno … whatever. Mr. T needs to make a new movie, that I would see – Mr. T is awesome.

My toes are cold. I turned on the heat again but my toes are still cold. Hubby won’t light a fire because he’s being a lazy-ass.

Holy crap HOW is it 11 o’clock already!? Jeebus, I need to clean off the bed – but I want to watch The Soup. I love me some Joel McHale (I remember when Hal Sparks used to hot it a million years ago. What the heck is HE up to lately? I love me some Hal Sparks also … sigh)

OMG, has everyone been keeping up with the BRITNEY drama lately? Girl has more issues then Playboy! I’m not going into it all on here, Perez has been obviously logging some serious time lately blogging it all.

Alright, one more post then it’s off to the couch for some Soup.

In A Daze

I seriously NEED to get my shit together. I’m SO unorganized since we moved! We’re getting boxes unpacked, but since I am a fiend for recycling the boxes are all over the place along with the paper crammed in bags ready for Freecycle (my email hasn’t gone thru yet, curious). They need to go outside but it looks like it is going to rain today. My weather widget says it’s just cloudy today, tomorrow it’s supposed to rain. Someone come get these boxes!!!

I want to get the dining room and the living room and the kitchen completely DONE today!! I’m so tired of navigating boxes and junk. The bedroom can wait, it’s just us. The loft and the guestroom need to be finished. I need to get the guestroom done so I can get up my sewing machine and get the 3 bags that I have to get done, DONE.

Add that to the fact that I need to meal plan and grocery shop. I’m a mess.

Please send me “get off your ass” vibes!!

December Roundup

Welcome to December ladies and gents! December is the time for holidays, giving and cheer! December is also the time for eggnog! Lots and lots and lots and lots of eggnog! With rum! Or whiskey! Or any other alcohol you can toss into your big cup o’nog with your nutmeg! Wait, you say you don’t add the rum, etc.??? What’s WRONG with you!? How can you get through the holidays not alco’d up?!

Okay, I’m getting ahead of myself since hubby hasn’t let me buy any ‘nog yet. I was trying a couple weeks ago. Now, it’s officially December and I think I can get some.

New layout on Starryskye’s blog! Yay! I used some scrapbook stuff I had saved. I will post the linky later.

I asked hubby if I could stay up late and play Sims2 – and he agreed. Hopefully, he agrees to let me sleep in tomorrow morning also! (He’s giving the baby a bath right now, he’s such an awesome hubby!)

Happy December!
