Bye Bye February!!! Pretty much a Post of Random Shit

See ya, no seriously, you can seriously GO now.. I am tired of being bone chilling cold!

I have 3 boxes left to pack and the closet to straighten up and then I am DONE.. Not bad from just moving in last weekend. Now if I could just locate my wedding album!

Plan for this weekend as the snow storm rolls in, grocery shop tonight after work - not because of the possible 6 inches of snow, but because we are low on food stuffs. Hair cut tomorrow morning.

Tomorrow afternoon we are supposed to go to my sister in laws to hang out and make soup - that is totally going to depend on the weather. Sunday my plan is to do not one damn thing!! I want to wear sweats, sit on the couch and watch TV.  Its been a crazy ass week and I just want to veg.

That whole the dress that got the internet fighting can stop now - Mashable has done 7 or 8 articles on that fucking dress alone.. Way to be legit Mashable!

 Leonard Nimoy passed away today.. His final tweet was pretty much perfect for a last word...

I was always more of a Star Wars fan than a Star Trek fan but Spock, Spock was a favorite character of mine.. The way he could deliver a smart ass line, that wasn't intended to be smart assed - pure genius..

At Least its Only Every 4 Years or So

Move is done - and the house is 90% unpacked and put away. Thank goodness - I am sore and have more unaccounted for bruises than I care to mention. I woke up yesterday with my right hand swollen three times its normal size... I am thrilled to just be about done -  only a few more boxes to go.

There are a few things I have learned about moving having done it once or twenty times in my lifetime.

There is always one box that never gets unpacked - it get put in a closet with the intent of "getting to it later" later never comes that box will just move from house to house with you.

Once you get where you are going and start to unpack you will purge more as you find there isn't anywhere to place the treasured item. You will wonder why on earth you bothered to pack it and completely forget that as you packed it, you declared it an item that you would NEVER part with. You will toss it in a box to go to the trash  without a second look. This moment is when the REAL purging happens.

Your husband becomes completely aware of how much makeup you actually own.

He will also see your handbag collection all at once...

No matter how carefully you label boxes there will be something you can't find and need for work the following Monday (or in my case Tuesday). You will end up repurchasing what ever item it is and then find it the next day.

Never move during February. Its cold, it makes the whole experience worse.

Icy hot patches are a gift from above. Purchase a box of them - apply liberally.

When our lease is up NEXT February - I am thinking an 18 month lease needs to be brought up...

Thursday Random Tidbits

I hate moving, its a pain in the ass. This time the possibility of it being a huge pain in the ass is high. There's a winter storm due in Saturday. Please just NO. My to-do list keeps getting longer. I forgot to call the sewage company to change service addresses. There is also the bank and my credit card company.. Oh and I have to go get a new microwave. The current place has an under the range hood model - I think they would be pissed if I relocated it!

In the midst of trying to pack and get situated my mothers fridge decided it was also tired of being cold and gave up. I had my father in law go look at it. He declared it toast. The valves in the compressor went out.  So mom got a new fridge from us for her birthday..  Thus starting a new round of being angry at my dad for leaving my mother in less than stellar financial shape..  Review your life insurance policies people - make sure it covers your shit and leaves your family with some breathing room.

Next week my Peep is having another procedure done to try to figure out whats going on with her. I really wished someone would figure something out soon.. All the guesses are maddening.  She just had a scope 2 weeks ago.

Since January I have had 3 close friends start the steps to ending their long term marriages. One of which is over 20 years.  Another is within my immediate family.  That one has been rough. Not surprising, but wow its been a ride.
I stumbled across this Elephant Journal article while surfing their web page. I think it explains things perfectly.  Most of their articles either inspire a "ah-ha" from me or a smile. It is a daily read of mine.

Its really starting to bother me seeing EVERYONE staring at their phones ALL THE DAMN TIME anymore. I am at the point where I am sick of being in a group, having a conversation and people are checking facebook or twitter or texting. Put the fucking phone away. Engage with the people who are there with you physically, if you wanted to scroll facebook why the hell are you making plans with people 3D?  Just stop!

Remember what you did BEFORE smartphones and facebook, yeah that - do more of THAT.  Oh and by the way - ignoring who you are sitting across from at a social gathering to be on your phone is RUDE. Your mama would be pissed!

Bright spot of the week thus far - this finally came and its bright! Now I just have to find a matching wallet!!

Have a great day! Go do something that does NOT include your phone!!

The Beauty About Time

The chief beauty about time
is that you cannot waste it in advance.
The next year, the next day, the next hour
are lying ready for you,
as perfect, as unspoiled,
as if you had never wasted or misapplied
a single moment in all your life.
You can turn over a new leaf every hour
if you choose.
Arnold Bennett

This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever; in its place is something that you have left behind... let it be something good.

Wednesday's Confessions and a Few Rants......


I am sick of flat ironing my hair its a process. Its thick, its curly and its wavy. So last night I just didn't, I tamed some of the crazy and then just let it be. No its not as polished as it usually is and right now I don't care...

That whole excuse "I can't because I am washing my hair that night" really isn't an excuse for me, its my reality. It takes hours to fully dry, even when using a hair dryer, because the dryer can only do so much. Then you have to flat iron it which can take another 45 minutes..  Last night I just didn't wanna...

I am sick of the hype over the 50 Shades of Grey movie. Hell even Mashable has an article on how to put together a beginners bondage kit... WTF? Do you seriously need a tutorial on that?  Isn't that what the other you tube-ish site is for?

I am keep a close eye on next weeks weather - the move is next weekend and I'd rather not have shitty weather for it. 

Starbucks you need to get your shit together and design a travel cup that goes IN THE DAMN DISHWASHER.. Who the hell has the time or desire to hand wash dishes these days is IS 2015. Surely you can come up with SOMETHING. 

I have really hot Valentines Day plans - we are getting take out and packing!!! Jealous I know. *wink*

I managed 2 out of 3 of my goals last weekend.. I did NOT make it to the gym. I did pack and get rid of things.

I need a vacation - an actual vacation where we go somewhere, chill and have fun.

The anniversary of my dad's birthday hit me harder this year than usual and I am not exactly sure why.

I'm trying to figure out how I was designated as everyone's "favor doer".

I can't stand whiners - lately the urge to tell them off is getting stronger and stronger..

A friend of mine put this on my Facebook page - it made my day:

Happy Birthday Dad

Sure miss you. Not a day goes by that I don't wonder what you would think about things in the world.  How you would get along with your great grandson.  He sure does loves trains. I'm betting that is your doing. He has all your old train pictures.

Mya is still finding her way. Hopefully she gets on the right path soon..

Mom's doing okay. She is getting ready to head to California for a 3 week vacation the end of March..

I hope where ever you are today is a good day.....
