I wanna.....

...go on vacation. Yes I know I was just off work for 7 days for the wedding and Hocking Hills. Yes I had a good time - but it was too short! Dave and I haven’t been on “vacation” together in like 5 years. We had a sucha great time I am ready to go again! But we aren’t sure where we want to go! I have ideas, different places for different reasons, which only makes it harder to decide what we want to do so we can start planning!

The Florida Keys - I have wanted to go since I was 12. We went on a family vacation to Florida with my Aunt, Uncle and cousins. Somehow they got to go the Key’s and I didn’t. I think maybe I went to Disney and they didn’t? I don’t know. I just know I have wanted to go since then! Plus I would think it would very pretty sunrise/sunset. So that is another draw for me.
Outer Banks - I would like to go back again in the off season. I went in HS for my cousins wedding in October and thought it was pretty. Again I am thinking sunrise/sunset. We also have family in the area so we could see them too. I also went down once in the summer when I was in college with the fam, but overall it wasn’t much fun, it rained the whole time!!!
Yellowstone - Not sure where this one came from. I am blaming my mom! After we went thought a few of the National Parks last year on our Vegas adventures we started talking about going. Dave would like to go. Mom somehow things Dad might go?? Yea I am not seeing that really!
Disney - I wanna go back at Christmas decoration times! We also want to take Stella sometime. I am going to starting working on my mom on this trip now that the wedding is over.
Vegas - I know it, I like, there is a variety of things to do.
Cruise - I wanna go on one. Dave does not. So I am trying to talk some of the girls into going. We talked about next year. But I really don’t think it is going to be happening. But I thought I would add it to my list.

Many more….I am sure there are many more, but those are the ones that have been on my mind the last few days.

Time On My Hands

I now think I have too much time on my hands. With the wedding over and most of my Jaycee responsibilities over, and Relay not in full swing yet I find myself doing nothing but watching TV. Don’t get me wrong, I have PLENTY of things I could so around the apartment, but no motivation to get it done. I find that I get a lot more done when I am busy than when I have time on my hands.

Tonight I am waiting to go back to the airport to pick up Dave, at 11:45 AM…ECK! I have things I keep thinking I could do but no, I just sit here and watch DVR shows. While trying to avoid the election mumbo jumbo!

So I am starting a to do list for myself for tomorrow, to see if maybe that will get me motivated to get a few things done. It’s a bunch of little things that I keep putting off….they are starting to add up!!!

Today was a Monday, or BLAHday as I like to refer to it sometimes. It was a pretty boring day. I went to the dentist after work - which stressed me out all afternoon because I HATE the dentist! Just going makes me sick to my stomach, and once I got there I got the even “better” news - it was x-ray day. But lucky for me they are great to me and treat me like a little kid and pull someone else in to help do the x-rays. Overall it was an okay visit, no cavities so that is all good!

After that we had a Relay For Life committee meeting that went very well in my opinion. We had 3 new committee members at our meeting!!! So that is very good and will bring new blood to this event in 2009, I can’t wait! Now I just need to get BUSY with my to do and idea list!!!

What a boring day!!!

90210 is back…again!

At work this week one of my co-workers mentioned that Time Warner got the CW channel back. Which means we got 90210 again! So this morning I am catching up on the episodes that I missed and set the DVR to start recording again this week. I know I am a dork - I know it - it’s okay!

So far that is the highlight of my day. I was looking forward to the extra hour of sleep from the time change. But my dear cat Guinness had other ideas…he decided to be a hunter last night and caught a bat…in the bedroom. So we woke up to this odd high pitch sound. Dave had to rescue the bat from Guinness and take it outside to free it. All of this meant all the lights in the apartment got turned on, and I was WIDE awake….for hours!!! I fell asleep and 30 minutes later Dave’s alarm went off, a little after that I fell back asleep and got another hour of sleep.

We had to leave by 7:45 so we could take Dave to the airport for his work trip to Florida. Yep the brat is off to Florida, but I don’t think there is going to be much time for fun. He has training during the day, a dinner, and then comes back on Tuesday evening.

So now I am trying to stay awake until I leave at 1 PM to go a baby shower for my old boss. And trying to figure out what I am going to get her for the shower. I never know what to get for baby showers, I always wanna go practical like lotion, shampoo, wipes, etc. BORING!!!!

A "relaxing" Saturday

Wow, it’s November. I am really in denial!! I have decided to try the one month of blogging this month. I haven’t signed up at the site yet. But it is on my to do list - the ever growing one!!

Today we went and voted. They say we got lucky as our line was a little under 2 hours - for a 2nd time voter, how is THAT lucky?? But the weather was very nice to be standing outside so I know it could have been worse. The main reason we went today was because Dave will be out of town on Tuesday, so he needed to go before he leaves tomorrow…and we didn’t realize this til Thursday afternoon….opps!!!

We went to lunch at a local restaurant Bun’s which wasn’t the best experience there. I now remember why I had not been picking to go there. Dave’s food was cold in the middle, the rolls had been way over cooked, and service was kinda slow.

We then headed to Wal-Mart to buy some shelving units for the basement so we could start project “Get this place in order” - between all of our stuff, never really going through stuff when we moved here two years ago, all the new wedding stuff, and my free time – we have got to get on it!!

We came home and chilled for a little while and then started on the basement. Wow oh wow do we have a lot of “stuff”!! We have already taken 2 bags of trash out, which makes me happy!

We decided we needed to go get some cleaning supplies….so out we went…and I forgot the one thing I wanted - the paper towels!!! So now I will have to pick them up in the AM.

Overall not really an exciting day – but it is a start on my new project J
