Monday Musings

I'm taking a page out of Kara's book today to bring you Monday Musings (okay, so hers was on Tuesday, but you get the point).

It's been almost two whole months since I've logged into Blogger.  For some reason I just couldn't bring myself to do it.  Tons of potential for writing, zero motivation to do it.

I suppose a huge part of it has to do with my whiney attitude that has officially set up shop here at Vail Drive.  I want to be happy with where we are in life - figuratively and literally.  But since that doesn't seem to be happening ANY-time soon....Monday Musings it is.

Let's pretend this post is as exhilarating as zip lining in Honduras.

= I should have sacrificed 30 minutes of One Tree Hill time this weekend for the sake of laundry.  I love laundry and all, but skipping a weekend really throws off my axis for the week.

= Speaking of OTH, we are just ONE SEASON (13 episodes) away from saying goodbye to characters that have come to feel like family over the last year. Whaaaat are we going to do with ourselves when they're gone??

= Can't a girl get a decent King Cake around here? Mardi Gras is 3 weeks away and I haven't had anything close to even a bite of KC, much less the real deal.

= Speaking of KC, note to self:  Don't resume "healthy" kicks until Lent next year...KC deprivation is no fun, no fun at all!

= Dear God, THANK YOU for the sunshine!!!  Please let it stick around foreverrrrrr (well...maybe with temperatures between 65-85* F, if you're feeling extra generous).

= Also, thanks for the forethought to sneak out early on this Monday (thanks to working extra hours on Sunday); it's the little things that get me through the workweek.

= Speaking of workweek, everyone's a buzz with rumors of furloughs and office closures.  Meanwhile, this girl is crossing her fingers... (HECK YES, CUT MY HOURS, FORGET THE PAY - HAPPY CAJ!!) ...Oh did I mention I live in Louisiana, where they're talking $380+ million cut to Higher Ed?

= Baseball season starts in a little over 2 weeks.  I have mixed feelings about that, considering Alex will be working every weekend through the end of May.

= I should probably stop now...the husband is sneaking out of work, and the sunshine (and the hyperactive outside dog) is calling our names.

= Could someone please give my arse a swift kick to get me out of this funk? It would be much appreciated.

That's all.

P.S.  I WILL be back to close out my "20 in 14" list, and hopefully to create one for 2015.  Don't let me give up, people!

You should watch Once Upon a Time! That's the show Logan and I are hooked on right now.

As far as baseball season goes…maybe you should just come visit me one weekend (or two). When Logan is also working!

I'm sorry you're in a funk. It happens to the best of us :/

I'm glad to see you writing! But I shouldn't talk because 2 month silences are totally normal for me! I think we should find some good fun topics to tell stories about.. like, ziplining in Hondorus! Id love to hear more about your adventures!
