Week 30 and stuff.

Very mundane week.

OMG this, is worse than anything Sharknado:

My two beautiful Starshine's:

Did they just become best friends?

I love this kid:
Toddler "Can't Live Like This"

Happy Birthday to the bestest Kayla I know!!!

I had just pulled my hair up, I probably should have checked it and/or fixed it before I was photographed.

Just saying, that I could make eye contact with every person that walked in there:

99% of people on the phone at work:

My favorite part of this picture is the guy mocking him at the bottom:

45 Life Lessons, written by a 90 year old

1. Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good.

2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

3. Life is too short not to enjoy it.

4. Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and family will.

5. Don’t buy stuff you don’t need.

6. You don’t have to win every argument. Stay true to yourself.

7. Cry with someone. It’s more healing than crying alone.

8. It’s OK to get angry with God. He can take it.

9. Save for things that matter.

10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.

11. Make peace with your past so it won’t screw up the present.

12. It’s OK to let your children see you cry.

13. Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn’t be in it.

15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye… But don’t worry; God never blinks.

16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.

17. Get rid of anything that isn’t useful. Clutter weighs you down in many ways.

18. Whatever doesn’t kill you really does make you stronger.

19. It’s never too late to be happy. But it’s all up to you and no one else.

20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don’t take no for an answer.

21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don’t save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

22. Overprepare, then go with the flow.

23. Be eccentric now. Don’t wait for old age to wear purple.

24. The most important sex organ is the brain.

25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.

26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words, ‘In five years, will this matter?’

27. Always choose Life.

28. Forgive but don’t forget.

29. What other people think of you is none of your business.

30. Time heals almost everything. Give Time time.

31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

32. Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

33. Believe in miracles.

34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn’t do.

35. Don’t audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.

36. Growing old beats the alternative — dying young.

37. Your children get only one childhood.

38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.

39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.

40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else’s, we’d
grab ours back.

41. Envy is a waste of time. Accept what you already have, not what you think you need.

42. The best is yet to come…

43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

44. Yield.

45. Life isn’t tied with a bow, but it’s still a gift.


But first, lemme take a selfie:

I boohoo'd and snotted all through the Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony.
Proud to be a Braves fan today!!

The most exciting thing to happen this week was Wednesday morning a stray dog showed up at the hotel. Animal Control open at 7:30, so for 4 hours the front doors had to be locked because it kept coming in. It was just hungry, so you couldn't get mad at it. The Auditor possibly threw his shoe at it and chased it with a sticky roller. I miss everything. Anyway, when we got there at 7, we lured her to our truck with food, and Scott took him to the Shelter. I feel bad, he was so thin!! I would have taken him home, but I know she needed professional care and shots.

I suppose that is all this week. Not unless you want to hear me complain and moan about my body ailments...

Week 29 with no witty title

Not too much going on this week. Inspection at work, and of course we got an Outstanding!!!

All the stolen pics of Lil' from this week.

The po po!

Lula was not happy after her bath.

Dan Uggla received his unconditional release from the Braves. While I was not a fan, Braves fan took it harder than I expected, so I didn't post anything mean on Twitter.

I could have an entire blog post of just his tweets...

Deliver Us From Evil: Taken From the Files of Ed and Lorraine WarrenDeliver Us From Evil: Taken From the Files of Ed and Lorraine Warren by J.F. Sawyer

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The stories in this book were very interesting, it was just very poorly written. It reminded me of children's books that I would read in the 80's.

The Boy Who Could See DemonsThe Boy Who Could See Demons by Carolyn Jess-Cooke

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The previews for this book were pretty much the same. "A great, fast-paced supernatural read....until the last chapter." Everyone said the same thing. So I had to know WHAT HAPPENS in the last chapter? I read the book and could not even conceive what could happen that was so disappointing? I went through every scenario. This morning it happened. I stared at the screen like it was Two Girls, One Cup. But as far as books go, I do recommend it. It is a very good read.
Until the last chapter.


They could make it into a movie, but we've already seen "The Sixth Sense".

I started reading Pretty Little Liars, Finding Casey, and One Hundred Names.

This is my feel-good thing of the week:
Dance Party with Daddy

I thought this was pretty cool:

I shouldn't have laughed...

My life..

No hospital visits, no broken down vehicles. Life was good and calm this week.

Week 28 and I almost died AGAIN!

What a week!!

Wednesday I had to be at work at 6am, and I felt fine, had Cheerios for breakfast, nothing out of the ordinary. Around 6:45 my chest started to hurt, it felt like heartburn, no biggie. Then it started to hurt in my arm, down to the forearm, it hurt in my back shoulder blade, and my jaw and chin were killing me. I just knew I was going to drop before my shift ended. You know it's serious when people are threatening to call my mother. Anyway, I didn't go to the hospital and I lived. The next morning I woke up, thankfully, and nothing hurt but my chin. That day at work was tough! The hotel sold out, and no one was expecting it, so housekeeping was short. So I'm like, "I can help!". Remind me not to do that e-v-e-r. At the end of my shift the front of my shoulder hurt, but nothing too bad. By the time I got home I could barely move. I couldn't sit, I couldn't lay. I got a magic pill from a loving family member and it knocked me out in under 10 minutes, and I slept for 14 hours. I attempted to clean the house Friday but it hurt too bad. I figured out it was sinus drainage that was making my face hurt. Twice it has locked my jaw. I don't understand it either.

DUDE!! A swarm of bats decided to grace our presence Saturday night. After I saw the fourth one, no way was I staying outside!
Santa came over to eat watermelon. No picture has ever screamed "LOUISIANA!!" than this:

Ahem....Tuesday I did in fact go to the ER. The chest, arm, and jaw pains were intense, I had cold, clammy skin, and very light headed. If you know me at all, I do in fact have to think I am dying, or unearable pain to go to the dr, must less the ER. I did. I cried. IV took 4 tries, and I have never experienced pain like that.
They say I am okay, not sure what is causing the pain, but xray, blood, EKG was all good. No clue about jaw pain.
I can live with it.
And I did call my Mother....

And speaking of true Louisiana:

A friend made this for me, love it!!



I cooked!! Cheesy Cheesy Meaty Ziti

Only I used bowtie instead of ziti. Nom.

The Duck Dynasty bandit struck again!!! This is not on my truck, but the back door.

Callie is such a turd. She knows I don't want her on the blue rug because she is always dirty when she comes inside, and the white part is hard to clean. I scrub with a toothbrush. So I have this huge blanket I put near the rug so she will lay on it instead. As you can see, she barely touches it with her body.

She did this once on our old loveseat- Dog 1, Lisa 0.

I don't know this people, but I want them to be my new best friend #watermelon

Laura has the sock of the week award:

Rebecca told me when I took Sassie that she was useless as a cat, that once they had a mouse that was eating out of Sassie's food bowl while Sassie hid from it on the bed. Well...look who redeemed herself.

This made me LOL:

I wish greatly that we could have this at our job:

I want this SO bad in my yard. I am looking at YOU, Scott!!

So this is an actual thing, and I want one.

I don't know this guy, but I want him to be my best friend:

You know it's true if you own a cat:

If she wants it, I guess I have to buy it!

So that's my week!! I didn't die!

Week 26, 27 of 2014. Woo.

Oh look, more pics that I stole.

So I am off on Friday (the 27th), and I am feeling productive, getting laundry and dusting done, and the cat is just being an insane and complete a-hole. I yelled at her for jumping on the counter, the bar, climbing the windows, jumping in front of the tv..this went on for 2 hours. She knew she was doing wrong because when I would go to get her she would take off at full speed. Finally when she jumped on the tv I had enough, and was charging at her in one direction, but she was faster and charge head first into my foot, which doesn't sound painful BUT IT IS!, then I went face first into the coffee table. That is a box. I could be dead. My head produced blood. I still have a headache 2 days later.

I don't know why I thought this was so funny.

I started reading Wicked by Gregory Maguire, and Sweetwater by Christina Baker Kline

Some I took, some I stole ;)

Scott bought me flowers and Slim Jims.

He spoils me so.

My sister's cat Sassie. We are her new home now.
Because she hates me a little, and I am trying to suck up, I don't even care that she is blocking the XBox.

SATAN spawn was in our back yard:
6 rattles!!

THIS is my brother in law, Steven:

THIS is a random dude that got arrested...named Steve

I don't think I have ever witnessed two strangers that look so similar.

On the way to work this morning-
"This land is our land.."
Me: This song sucks. If people knew we were listening to this, our street cred would be ruined.
Scott: I think it's already ruined.
Me: It's because we go to bed before dark smelling of Ben Gay, right?
Scott: Yep.


Allegiant (Divergent, #3)Allegiant by Veronica Roth

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

After completing this trilogy, I wish I had some memory serum.....

View all my reviews

I was listening to my iPod like I do every day, I notice after 30 minutes or so that no Mumford and Sons has come on, and that's rare because I have every. single. song of theirs on there. When the playlist started to repeat, I went to look and there is ZERO Mumford on my pod! I go to my laptop, check iTunes, and there is no Mumford there either. I can't live like this.
What the fudge nuts.
This is the most whitest problem ever.

So there you have another two weeks of my life.
Calm yourself.
