One load of laundry down, one to go...

I always become engrossed in another task when i'm doing laundry; yesterday I started the first load with good intentions and then ADHD kicked in and I forgot about it until bedtime. But I threw it in the dryer toot-suit (I know the spelling is not correct and I don't care) when I did remember, and got one load done at least!

Must have slept in a wierd position last night because my neck is killing me today :(

When I left for work this morning I noticed a plump little robin sitting on my trellace in the garden. Stupid bugger is probably eating all my cucumber seeds, grrrr. I should put up a scarecrow! Would that scare robins? Anyways, no wonder I never have any cucumbers to harvest...

I hope the weather turns out to be warm today; i'd like to work in the flower beds and clean them up a bit. I'm a terrible home-owner. I'm the kind of neighbour people talk about when they find dandelions growing in their backyard. I had a dream two nights ago that my neighbour's quack-grass was spreading into my garden, and I was screaming and yelling and pulling them out - totally postal. Now I know how they must feel about me.

I need a holiday RIGHT NOW. I can tell that it's time for a long rest. Or a long bi^ch session.

TheMother on 06/12/2012:
I guess you and I wouldn't be good neighbors as I'm a fanatic about my landscaping. Grass and flower beds are always neat and tidy. Now that we're in the warm season, hubby and I cut our grass sometimes every five days depending on how much rain we get. Of course, we are retired so we have time for this. I do wish some of our neighbors would put a little more effort into keeping their property looking better. It doesn't cost any money - just some time and effort. Good luck with cleaning out your flower beds. I'm sure they'll look very nice when they're done.


V on 06/12/2012:
LOL! Both holiday and a biatch session sounds good ;) I wish you were my neighbor, two ADHD girls next door to each other, imagine all the unfinished projects but boy would we have lots of fun :) RYC I am so diggin Insanity and I can't wait for Max..Come on yall, lets GO!! hahahaha


Umpqua on 06/12/2012:
Haha at your dream, a gardening nightmare! I hope you're able to get outside today :)

My body hurts.

The weekend was filled with lots of things. Um, let's see. Lots of stuff.

I ate the best meal ever on Friday evening - bbq pork chop, scalloped potatoes and feta-stuffed cherry tomatoes. Oh yum. And I don't even like tomatoes. My vodka plans got cancelled so I went to bed early instead ;)

On Saturday morning I woke up early and started cooking meals for myself and for Dad. I made a big pot of bbq pork ribs as well as a casserole dish of cabbage rolls. After packing them into containers, I drove into the city to visit Dad. I found a Booster Juice in the city and picked us up some drinks with extra protein shots since he's having trouble eating again. I drove back home and collapsed for awhile on the couch. Then I had some ribs and cabbage rolls for myself. Started reading, took a warm bath, tried to relax.

Sunday morning I was up and at 'em again. No, just kidding. I slept in. After lunch, I went to a Green Couch Session at the train station, which was absolutely worth backing out on golfing for a friend's birthday. Some bluegrass, folk music to fill the day with pure joy. I love that stuff. Once I got back home, I cut the grass and planted my garden - finally! Potatoes, carrots, spinach, onions, cucumber, green beans and peas. And while the sun was still out I bbq'd steak and garlic sausage and had it with steamed asparagus and brown rice.

This morning it is blistery and so cold! I am sure the force of the winds today will sweep away whatever seeds I planted in the garden. I made a huge mistake and wore sandals to work; I am so cold even with a sweater on. Silly girl.

I have great big loads of laundry to do today after work, and some cleaning in the kitchen due to the cook-fest over the weekend. A small price to pay for such a lovely weekend. Hope yours was too!

Umpqua on 06/11/2012:
Sounds like a nice weekend and good deal on planting your garden. I hope it warms up for you there soon!


sweetpea1977 on 06/11/2012:
what a nice weekend you had!

i hope summer shows up soon! :)


V on 06/11/2012:
Wow I can't believe it is still cold there :( You can always come here for a nice long visit if it doesn't warm up..I hope you had a good day <3

Oh, the weather outside is dreadful...

We had a thunderstorm Wednesday night that shook the entire house and woke me up in a panic at 1:00 a.m. I couldn't sleep after that. So tired on Thursday! Then I couldn't sleep again last night, forgot to set my alarm, and was late to work this morning.

The entire week has been a write-off. The only good thing about it is that I have been able to maintain good eating and my weight hasn't sky-rocketed. Knock on wood.

Last weekend I was so busy; this weekend looks like it will be no different. I think I will take a nap after work then head to a bar tonight. Any bar will do, so long as they have copious amounts of vodka. Unless i'm the Designated Driver. Then I hope they have coffee.

hollybelle on 06/08/2012:
Have a good weekend, LC - how is your dad?


V on 06/08/2012:
I hope you are not the DD :( Copious amounts of vodka sound like a winner..You girls should cab it so all can partake <3 Have fun tonight!

Busy!

Golfed first round of the season yesterday - three hours later and I was beat! I walked the whole thing while carrying my clubs. People don't do that around here too often.

Today will hopefully be a good day to cut the grass and get another couple hours of exercise in...

sweetpea1977 on 06/05/2012:
Excellent!!


thenewMLE on 06/05/2012:
Great fun that counts as exercise!! That's what I like. But I can't play golf... I hope you are counting that grass cutting as exercise, because that's a work out in itself! Have a good day!


Umpqua on 06/05/2012:
Yay for golf!


V on 06/05/2012:
I have never played golf..I think it is an A D D thing ;) LOL I am glad you had fun fun fun! Have a good one!

For those who may be wondering, my stalker friend didn't leave a whole 12 point buck in my yard; only the head. Mounted.

And sometime through the night, it was stolen. Boo. I was really starting to become attached.

I am more sarcastic than usual because the gut ache has turned into period pain. My back hurts, my stomach hurts, my neck and joints all hurt, and I am GROUCHY. I have a crazy weekend ahead of me, and I have NO TIME for this crap!

I am so very thankful for the laughter i've had in my days over the past week. Even though it's been a long one, with some obstacles and other difficulties, i've been able to share a few laughs and build on some friendships that i'd been unintentionally ignoring. I'm grateful there are people around me who brighten my day just by being around

Today is a coffee and advil day. There are plenty of things I want to get done; if I can get past the curious need to throw up, I may accomplish something. If not, the sun is out and there's no rain to speak of yet, and there is more good than bad in the world and i'm just going to keep running that thought through my head. All is good.

sweetpea1977 on 06/01/2012:
I hope you feel better soon!


Umpqua on 06/01/2012:
That's good that you have found a bright spot in the midst of the ****ery going on around you. I hope you have a nice weekend and that it's free of unwanted gifts ;P


V on 06/01/2012:
Sounds like someone did you a favor by removing your "gift"..Sorry TOM has descended upon you with a vengance :( TOM is here to haunt me too :( what an AHOLE!! LOL Have a wonderful weekend!

I've had a gut ache for a couple of days now. Initially, I thought it was from a spicy food dish; now it feels like it's period-related. Totally not happy about that. Making a doc appt right now.

I had an interesting day yesterday; if you are a friend of mine on facebook, you've heard half the story already. Someone is trying to buy their way into my life by leaving me toy strollers and giant 12-point bucks in my yard.

The other half is that I spared for my new ball team last night and we lost to the BEST TEAM in the league by ONE RUN.

And I managed to hit the ball instead of striking out! In fact, I nearly took out the pitcher, unintentionally of course  but I was damn proud of that hit LOL. I earned my position on the team with that smart move

Afterwards, I went to a Tomboy Tools party, bought a bright pink toolbelt (so awesome) and had a few drinks. My eyes were pretty swollen when I woke up this morning. That's what beer does to me.

MzLovely on 05/31/2012:
Wow, whats up with the gift choices? Hope you have a good day =)


MzLovely on 05/31/2012:
Hope you feel better soon


Umpqua on 05/31/2012:
I hope you can get your tummy stuff sorted out. WTF - did someone leave a dead deer in your yard? My friend made the mistake of complaining about her public works department a few years ago and dead squirrels began appearing in her driveway. I hope you get it sorted out!


hollybelle on 05/31/2012:
That is so strange about someone leaving you the "gifts"...weird! Do you have an idea who it is? Congratulations on your hit! Good game!


sweetpea1977 on 05/31/2012:
I hope you feel better!

Yes, I saw that deer photo. WTF! Do you have any clue who it is?? Maybe the person who is leaving you these "gifts" is mistaking you for someone else. So weird!

Congrats on the hit!! :)


V on 05/31/2012:
I saw the photo too and i LOVED your response!! Hahahaha diamonds truly are a girl's bestie <3 Even funnier was your friend that suggested to sell the deer to an American!! Hahahahahahaha..Seriously this stalker of yours has a certain weirdo factor, I mean you just can't woo a girl with such obscure items...


V on 05/31/2012:
Good job on winning the game bTW

The second day of sun! I'm excited as this means a possibility of playing slopitch tonight.

Pure Cardio and Cardio Abs today. And hopefully no more long vacations away again.

Breakfast was cereal with almond milk and flaxseed. Lunch is alioli (spicy! yum!). Dinner was going to be steak but I forgot to take it out of the freezer, so it'll probably be leftover chicken wraps (which is also slightly spicy! yum!).

Last night I went to a friend's place for dinner (do you think I need to host a dinner at my place soon? payback for all the free meals I seem to be getting lately?) and she made alioli. Alioli is a pasta dish - she makes it with spaghetti, roasted tomatoes, garlic and lots of spices. We had chicken breast with it, and some coleslaw. I drank two big glasses of water throughout the meal, it was sooo spicy! But very good. I may pay for it today, but i'm eating some of the leftovers for lunch anyways LOL.

See you tomorrow!

Umpqua on 05/30/2012:
Yay for some sunshine! Your dinner sounds fantastic and healthy, yum yum :)


sweetpea1977 on 05/30/2012:
Thats awesome about getting to play slopitch tonight!

Man, last night's dinner sounds amazing!!


V on 05/30/2012:
Yayy for a rain free day!! I am so effing pumped to start Insanity on Monday, I am sporting wood ;) hahahahahaha... Have a good day girly!!


V on 05/30/2012:
BTW I am sure I will be yelling plenty with Insanity ;)

More rain yesterday. Rain, rain, rain. But this morning the sun is shining! I hope it stays this way.

I have some water in the basement due to the rain; this is so annoying. I'm going to have to look for some paint that will seal the cement and keep the water out. It's a darn mess down there.

I made chicken and peppercorn ranch whole wheat wraps for dinner yesterday; so good! I have leftovers for lunch today, but I will definitely be sad when it's all gone.

I slept in this morning and didn't have time for anything; I barely had time to shower and run out of the house! I woke up with 20 minutes to go until my shift started!!! Must have shut off the alarm clock while I was sleeping

I am hoping to finally get back to insanity workouts starting tomorrow. I think I might go back to the last week of month 1, skip recovery week, then go straight into month 2. I know I haven't lost all of the good work i'd accomplished, but I need to back track a bit and get back into things slowly. I still really, really, REALLY want that t-shirt.

The summer is booking up fast; this weekend i'm heading to the city on Saturday, and attending our Dog Park Grand Opening on Sunday afternoon. There are no free weekends in June, so i'll be creatively trying to find ways to get everything done during the week whenever i've got 20 minutes free. The garden WILL get done. It just needs to stop raining.

Tangalyn~ on 05/29/2012:
those chicken wraps sound good :) hope u have a great day


sweetpea1977 on 05/29/2012:
those wraps sound great!

Im so happy to hear that you'll be starting Insanity back up again! Yay!


V on 05/29/2012:
Hey there girly!! I am so happy to hear that you will be resuming Insanity and your plan of action sounds like a good one, and YES you NEED that free tee shirt <3 Have a good one, I hope it stops raining


Umpqua on 05/29/2012:
I also try to squeeze in gardening whenever I get a chance. Good on you for continuing with Insanity!!

I feel like i'm holiday-ing in England; we must have had rain everyday for the last week already, plus snow too. At least everything will be sooooooo green and luscious when the sun finally comes back!

It didn't rain during the walk on Saturday; a few little droplets spit on us but for the most part we stayed dry. It was quite windy and cold though.

I picked up Dad and his ex and drove them to the street fair after the walk. I was quite frustrated; I wanted to check out all the booths, maybe get some jam or some fresh handmade soap for my collection; all they wanted to do was visit people the whole time. I felt a little manipulated! Actually, I felt totally ignored to be honest. I should have just gone off on my own and said to heck with them, but that just isn't how i'm built LOL. Anyhoo I got over it but I drove back home Saturday night - no need to give them another chance to disappoint me!

I met with another friend on Sunday afternoon for a coffee date, did some laundry and watched movies all day. Before bed, I took a long, very HOT bubble bath, then foam rolled my back, shoulders and neck, and did a bit of reading before falling asleep. It was so nice!

I have no plans for today other than work. It is still raining out there. I might sweep and tidy the basement since an appraiser will be coming within the next week to have a look at it.

Still need to make that appointment for a massage...

Kati on 05/28/2012:
SNOW??? WoW that's weird!


V on 05/28/2012:
Doing a little remodeling? Sorry the weather has been sucky for you :( I hope you have a good evening <3


nunnermack on 05/28/2012:
Isn't a bubble bath the best thing??? I just wish mine (my tub) was a little bigger. I either submerge my lower half only or lie back with my feet and legs on the wall in front of me. Someday I will have a tub that fits all 5'8" of me!!


hollybelle on 05/29/2012:
Snow is gone, at least??? Hope your Spring comes soon. Good job on the walk and taking Dad to the fair. He was probably so glad to be out he didn't realize he was ignoring you. I think when parents get older the roles reverse a little. Taking care of them can be similar to caring for a child and children are self-centered by nature. It's just the nature of their time of life. The same with old parents. It's an adjustment for everyone. Have a good week!

I woke up to a light dusting of snow on the ground this morning! CRAZY!!

I fell asleep after work yesterday and didn't wake up until 10pm. I wanted to go straight back to bed, but thought I should eat something first, so I had a small plate of chicken, rice and veggies. Then I went to bed. The bed covers were far too thin and I woke up half frozen a few times during the night LOL. Of course, I was too lazy to get another blanket.

Today I am leaving work early and heading to an appointment at the bank. Tomorrow morning i'm going for breakfast with two friends, then we're heading to the city to take part in the annual Walk for Lupus fundraiser. I hope the weather will be nice enough! After that, I want to take Dad to a street fair and possibly make up a few dishes of pork ribs for him to freeze and eat throughout the next couple of weeks. I may stay there until Sunday but if not, my only plan is to only do what I need to do at home and maybe light up those candles I bought and do some reading.

I had another mocha this morning, chicken will be for lunch, oatmeal in the afternoon and dinner is TBD. I have some steak in the freezer. Steak and potatoes sounds delish, and guess what? I still have a few onions in the garden, compliments of last year's harvest! I bet they'll taste really sweet and good!

Umpqua on 05/25/2012:
Umm, I'm doing steak and onions tonight too. Great plans for the weekend, enjoy!
