Okay, Y’all. We’ve done this several times before, so it needs no introduction, and you know the rules.
You can play along on Instagram or whatever social media platform you want.
Tag me so I can see what you’re posting.
Everyone has a want list, and I’m no different. Here’s a few things that are on my immediate want list:
These jeans are from Zumiez. I have only one pair of ripped jeans, so definitely need this pair. They’re not real expensive, which is another reason I’m shocked I haven’t bought them yet. Right now, I’m at a very awkward weight, so trying to decide which size to buy is making me hold off for now. Maybe they’ll be out of style by the time I decide. LOL!
This wrought iron cross from Walmart NEEDS to be in my house. It’s size is not too small, and I can even personalize it to have our last name. Perfect! So why haven’t I bought it yet? I have no excuse. I just haven’t.
This little machine from Target needs to be in my kitchen. When I was visiting my Aunt in Oregon a few weeks back, I watched my cousin chop up all kinds of things in this little contraption without any issue. All the times I make guacamole, or chop up garlic, this could make it so much easier. Where has this been all my life?
These bowls from Amazon tho. About five years ago, a coworker gave me a set of ceramic mixing bowls. Unfortunately, the big one broke, leaving me with two smaller bowls. Neither of which is big enough to mix a cake or brownies. So, this set is what I need. Ceramic breaks easy. Plastic gets cracks and deteriorates after time, breaking down into the food. No thanks. Stainless steel is where it’s at. Plus, non slip bottoms? Yes, please.
So, that’s it. Those are the items at the top of my must-have list.
Do you have a list? What are some of the items on your list?
Boy, oh boy, oh boy. I have soooo much that I want to write about, but just don’t really know how to go about it. I guess we will do a catchup post today.
+ My vacation was okay. It took me 14 hours to get there. I left on a Monday morning, so didn’t have much traffic. Pretty much the only other people on the road with me were truckers. Every big town I came to, either had already had their rush hour or hadn’t had it yet. On the drive home, I had a lot more traffic. Because of this, I stopped less often than I did going up. By doing that, I was able to keep it at 14 hours. It was great to see family. I spent some time with some distant family that was in town. That was nice.
+ I’ve mentioned before that my family isn’t perfect. We are all a bunch of crazies, and we all know it. Because of this, a fight must happen every time we are together. I call shit like I see it. I’ve said it before, I’ll call you out on your bullshit whether you want to hear it or not. And that, is exactly what I did. To my sister and my mom. I can only hope that one day they figure it out.
+ My mom has turned from a responsible adult, to an irresponsible teenager. She used to hold down a full-time job. She was director of human resources after working her way up from a part time secretary. She raised two daughters and ran our household. Now, she’s retired, dates a man that is a horrible influence on her, drinks alcohol like a fish, doesn’t take care of her diabetes like a responsible person should, and tells anyone that tries to intervene with her decisions, to get out of her life. She’s my mother, and I love her, but at some point, you just have to let them fuck up on their own. Unfortunately, the bad decisions she’s making, will lead to diabetes killing her.
+ My cat missed me so much while I was gone. SS says he was sitting in my seat often, which is something he never does. And, he has slept with me every night since I’ve been home. I love that he loves me.
+ Since the big blowout with my sister and mom, I went through all my social media accounts and deleted so many people. People that might possibly share information with them, that I don’t want them knowing. People that are negative about everything in their lives. People that won’t post anything but political shit. People that are so desperate for any kind of attention, they post half naked pictures of themselves. I mean, if you have to explain that “it’s just a bathing suit”, you’re a fucking slut and I don’t have any interest in following you. It’s an amazing feeling to be free of people that will drag me down. I also deleted the one person that didn’t like the fact that SS and I were getting married. If you can’t be happy for us, bye bye! We won’t even invite you to the wedding if you don’t want. Ha!
+ It’s wonderful to be home. The big giant hugs and kisses I got from SS when I came home, made me the happiest woman in the world. It’s a wonderful feeling knowing that I can go away on a week long vacation, and still come back to a loving, and very understanding fiance. He really is the best and I’m extremely grateful for him every single day.
Okay, that’s enough. I’ve got stuff to do around the house. Can’t let this place get out of control. It’ll make me lose sleep.
Just getting some random stuff off my chest.
+ I can’t wait until Senior season is over. I want to get back to my regular camera rig and little kids. T-minus 40 days and counting.
+ I miss RJ. I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve seen him, and it’s only been three months. He’s turning 18 in less than a month, and I won’t get to spend it with him. As his mom, that breaks my heart. But, that’s just the situation this time. I’ve gotten to spend the last four years with him for his birthday, so I guess it’s okay. I guess.
+ SS’s 14 year old daughter has been with us for almost two weeks now. I have no idea how long she’s going to be with us this time. She makes it obvious she doesn’t want to be here. I can see it bothers SS, but 14 year olds don't typically give a shit about how their actions affect their parents. She’s no different.
+ I’m addicted to NCIS. This is serious. I don’t quite understand it myself, but it’s true. Any time I’m sitting in the living room with the tv on, I’m either watching a marathon on USA channel, or binge watching on Netflix. There are 15 seasons, so plenty of episodes to choose from. I’ve gone through all the seasons, at least four times. Seasons 14 and 15 are more recent, so haven’t watched those as many times. Besides, it hasn’t really been the same since Ziva and DiNozzo left, but I CAN’T STOP WATCHING.
SS and I are celebrating tonight, so headed out to sushi for dinner. Mmmm!
