It's Monday. Meh. Happy President's Day.
I have enjoyed these days off. Not much accomplished as I had planned, but let's get real...I never expected it to. I did get my kitchen the cleanest it has been in a long time, cleaned the living room, painted flower pots, bought groceries, ran into my ex, watched 49 minutes of Paranormal Activity 2, and ate a bag of Doritos. I am exhausted.

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Not normally the type of book I go for, but 2 very reliable sources assured me I would love it. They were right. I think any older sister will appreciate it!!
Callie was mad Scott didn't take her with him, so when he pulled up in the driveway, instead of meeting him at the door, she does this:

We went to Alexandria today. I had a list of stuff I needed to get. I came home $18 poorer and one thing on my list. Next time I will go alone.
I bought "Catching Fire" on the Kindle and loving it so far! I can't believe I am just now giving into the "Hunger Games" obsession. I hope the movie doesn't disappoint.

It's 10am and I am already dreading my 3-11 shift today. I had dreams all night about how things were going to go wrong today. I did wake up to Scott bringing me a hash brown from McD's, and let's face it, they're basically crack, so I am good for a week or so.
This is MUCH better than the other one. It does not taste like wood and paint.
I am at the halfway point on "Catching Fire". So good.
I don't know how to describe this work day besides "If I had balls I would cut them off".

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I finished "Catching Fire" and about a quarter way through "Mockingjay".
Not much has been happening. Work, sleep. Last night I walked (some may say slithered like a slug) on the walking track. Note to self: wear different shoes that doesn't make it feel like your heel will fall off.
2 more hours at work. Come on weekend!!

Today I got to be highfalutin. I was invited to the Natchitoches Chamber of Commerce Awards Banquet. I felt like Snooki at the Oscars. Speaking of Snooki....what in the name of all that is holy was she thinking when she decided to procreate.
Today was LaChanski's last day. This makes me sad. He is my confidant.
I didn't walk tonight on the track tonight. I blame it on the sprinkles and my sister's blisters. I was going to go with Bailey, but the truth is, I fell asleep reading 'Mockingjay' and didn't wake up until almost 8pm.
Happy Leap Year!

13-hour shift today. Party up in here!
It was a decent day. I wish I could have gone to see Jeff Dunham with my galpal, but we will girly bond another time. My feet are screaming at me.
I lost a former co-worker today. It hit me pretty hard, I try not to get too emotional in public, but it just hit me weird, and once the first tear fell I couldn't stop. Al King was the funniest dirty old man I know. A good family man who liked to "doctor up" his tea. I knew him just a few years, but it feels like a lot longer. My next shot of tequila I will toast to Al.

Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I didn't expect a happy ending, but I never thought it would end like it did. Regardless, a good end to the trilogy.
So I think I am finally going to have to go to the doctor. Most normal people would have went on day 2, but this is day 5. I thought it was a staph infection, but every one keeps saying spider bite, so I guess I will be forced to find out.
On an unrelated note, I do believe my left ankle is swollen.
Now let me point out-- I am a fat girl. But they're not THAT big....
The right one:

Looks like nothing I have planned for today will happen. The doctor's office closes at 12 on Saturday, and I just woke up. By the time I shower, shave my leg hair surrounding the wound, get dressed, wake up Bailey, get her dressed, call my mother, there is no way we could be there. And that is not one of my polished excuses. It's also raining, so no yard work either. I am currently sitting on the couch watching "Inside Nascar" and reading emails.
I follow a lot of blogs on Blogger, but only 2 do I have sent to my email.
These guys make me laugh out loud.
I didn't do much today. Went to the Walmart with my Mother. Hung out with the spouse. Performed self-surgery on my leg. Typical Saturday stuff.
I am thinking about getting a Blackberry Tablet. I am holding off, because for a year all I talked about and wanted was a Kindle Fire. Now I'm like, "meh, I just use the app on my phone and iPod.."
So now I need to find something new to read. I think I will finally take advantage of all the free Kindle books I have downloaded.
I don't normally follow the Nationwide NASCAR series, but ELLIOTT SADLER won, yo!!
I know, right!
