Tis the season

So, I am tired of all of the stupid negative people that need to shove their considered problems for everyone. I am not, I repeat, NOT a negative person at all. I am usually very upbeat and try to find ways to make people laugh. That is probably a character flaw because even in awkward situations I want people (namely myself) to be comfortable because I HATE awkward situations. I just wish people would stop trying to push that whatever they think/feel/believe is the right thing and stop letting people believe/feel/think what they want. If you do not like how people are doing something just let them be. I know this blog is counter-productive, but that is why it is my thoughts and I am not forcing anyone to read this, they are doing that of their own choosing.

Anywho...with all of that lovely Christmas spirit that is out there (and by that I mean all the bah humbug people) I just figured that this would be a good time to post this. Please, for everyone's sake just let people be. No need to think that you are right all of the time and that everyone else is an idiot just because they do not do/say/act the exact same way you do/want them to. It is a free country and no one should be made to feel that way. Good day.

The little things

So I was wrapping presents on Saturday night and little man was jealous of his cousins presents. So I did what any good mom would do and wrapped one of his books that was going to be a stocking stuffer and let him open it. I was amazed because I have no idea how he even knew what to do. Last Christmas he was only 10 months old an obviously on his birthday he was only 1 so he didn't really understand the present giving situation. And we have only gone to one birthday party since then so I was amazed that he knew to rip the paper to get to the good stuff. And his face was priceless! I wish I would have had my camera ready because he was so excited! It made my heart melt!

And then today I took all of my family's presents over to my folks house so we don't have to make unneccesary trips to grab them on the way home from Dodge and I was wrapping up a last present for my grandma when I hear the familiar rip of wrapping paper! Lo and behold, Leo had gotten ahold of one of his grandma's presents and decided he would open it! I got it back in time to add a piece of tape to conceal the gift, but it was to hilarious. But then he started to cry and made my mom feel bad! She almost let him open up one of his presents just to make up for it! What a sucker! Keep them crocodile tears coming boy because grandma will fall for anything! *Love you mom!*

Off subject

I got so off subject yesterday with my blog that I had to retrace what I originally wanted to say! My main thought for yesterday's post was so going to be about what we do to change ourselves to fit into our significant others lives. So, I love music (as seen by working in a music store for 4 years). I really do like all styles of music but when I was dating Leo I totally was in to metal a lot more than I am now. I think part of the reason was because I totally dug Leo and wanted us to have more in common than we already did, but another part was because my life was kind of hectic and the music was kind of hectic and it fit. But now my life is not as hectic (in the sense that it was!) and so I dig more mellow music. Don't get me wrong, we want to go to a Slipknot concert in January and that will rock my socks off but I will definitely put my foot down (kinda) when he starts listening to stuff I don't like. And I know I am not alone in this. One time when we were going to Hays when we had just started dating and he let me listen to country for over half of the way there. That DOES NOT happen anymore! He hates country and I know that so I only turn it to those stations to grind his gears! But he was being very courtly and let me listen to my faves! .

I can't really think of anything else that I "changed" to fit better with him because we already have a lot in common (and we are brutally honest with each other), but that particular thing sticks out and it cracks me up! I'm sure people say and do a lot more and worse things to fit with that person, but I'm sure that those people who change drastically are the relationships that don't make it.

What are things that you have changed about yourself to gain the attention of the opposite sex? Just curious!

who am I?

That is a question that I have been thinking about today. I thought about this because I was thinking of my old roommate. I just talked to him last night and we chatted (via texting) for a little bit. It made me think about our year and a half living together. Having one other roommate which worked out fabulously, from the birthdays to the dinners to the movie nights, to having an additional roommate who did not work out well because he was a d-bag and because he was a thief (allegedly). I sure do miss that guy (the original roomie, not the thief!). I wish that he would move back here, but then again, even if he moved back here would I see him that often? How much do I even see my brother, who lives about a mile and a half away? Not often enough, that is for sure!

Anywho...back to my original thought. Who am I? When I was 18 and had moved out I was a drinker. And I stayed up late and worked a retail job at an awesome music store. Loved my roomies, loved my job and loved my life. Then I started dating my hubby. He moved in and roomie moved out (because his job transferred him to AZ, not because of the hubby!). Still drank, not as much though because classes were harder and didn't really have anybody to drink with anymore! Started working at a different job but still loved my life. We went to concerts, went out to movies, to dinner. It was great! Now, I work at a job I really like, definitely don't drink anymore (maybe 1 or 2 times a year!) and now we don't even go to the movies or out to dinner or to concerts. Even though I really like where I am at right now, minus a few small debts, I mean details! :) I want my hubby to want to take me out to dinner and a movie. I don't want to come home from work and then still have to "work" all evening. I would love love love to really just have the hubby that I first started dating! I want the spark back and can't figure out how to get it there. That's pretty sad considering we've only been married for 4 1/2 years.

Any help would be appreciated! Give me some feedback. How do you keep the spark there (or if not the spark, at least the significant other wanting to do nice things for you!)

And I do want to make clear that he does do nice things for me, but they include cutting the crust off of my pumpkin pie (i hate the crust!) and scraping my windows! I'm sure there are other things, but I can't think of anymore right now!

So I haven't been feeling well

So, why is it when a woman says that she has been feeling nauseous everyone automatically assumes that she is pregnant? Honestly people, it is flu season, why can't a girl just say she doesn't feel well and people leave it at that? I guess the next time I don't feel well and don't want to feel like I am involved in the Spanish Inquisition (insert Mel Brooks joke here) I will just tell people that I am having diarrhea and tell people to shove off if they feel inclined to spew the baby blues my direction!

Christmas Craziness

Every year I go shopping with my mom and grandma to help my grandma get her Christmas shopping done. Today was that day and it was great! We started at the mall and went to Target and a little shop called Nifty Nut House. And we made a lunch stop at Red Lobster. Amazing day all the way around! My best deals were at Childrens Place where I got 2 pairs of jeans, a sweater for my niece and a 3 in 1 winter coat for little man all for $46. That may not sound amazing, but the coat was originally $50 so there! Also, at Target I had $50 in gift cards from cashing in points from my debit card and I got my brother's present, his gf's present, another present for my niece, a glove/hat/scarf package for moi and a couple of little things for the little man for $30 after my gift cards. I am a bargain machine! So to all of you non-bargain shoppers...ha ha! I rock!

Weird Weather

So I am not one to care that much about the weather, but seriously you know when you live in Kansas when one day it is nice enough to grill outdoors and the next it is snowing and ice covers the ground. Yep, that is exactly what has happened in the land of Oz. If it wouldn't have gotten so dang dark so dang fast I would have grilled last night. And when I opened the door this morning snow was blowing all over the place and I fishtailed like a beyatch on the way to work. So as the old saying goes...there's no place like home! Gotta love Kansas and its wacky weather!

Clean Sweep

I hate cleaning. Have I ever mentioned that? I don't think I have, but I really hate to clean. I knew this weekend I needed to do a good thorough cleaning and so yesterday I cleaned out the fridge. I had no idea refried beans could stay good without molding for so long. I swear to you we had 3 containers with remnants of refried beans. So disgusting. I also cleaned all of the monkey's bottles and loaded and unloaded the dishwasher. Cleaned cabinets, etc.

Then this morning I started on little man's room. We have had a mouse problem and we are still trying to get rid of those sneaky bastards. But anywho...I had received quite a bit of hand me down clothes for the monkey and I had washed them all. But after washing them I realized I did not have enough hangers so they were in a laundry basket in his room. Actually more like 4 laundry baskets but I kept forgetting to get more hangers. But then we got the mice and I like to be on the safe side because I knew they had been in his room from their little "treats" they left for us by his book case. Well I finally got more hangers so this morning I started laundry. I did laundry ALL FREAKING DAY! I could not believe it. And even after I had bought 40 more hangers I still don't have enough. So the rest of the clothes are high so the mice can't get them.

After all the laundry had been put away (except for the ones without hangers) I decided to finish cleaning the refrigerator. I cleaned that bad boy and it is sparkling! And then we moved the TV to the other side of the living room because Leo thinks it's feng shui is better. Just kidding, he just wanted all of the furniture to be pointing to the TV for some reason! And now it is 9:52 and I did not get around to the bathroom. I will save that for an evening this week. And let me tell you I am NOT looking forward to it. The one thing though that makes cleaning so worthwhile is being able to sit down after all that and think what a nice looking house you have! Hopefully everyone's weekend was as productive as mine! And I hope most of you are at least started with the Christmas shopping...only 17 days until Christmas!

What do I have to say

So I have been reading a lot of blogs lately, one reason is because I (ok, my friend) told me how to read on google reader and I can soooo do that at work! But one thing I have noticed is how a lot of people write about some crazy shit. Now honestly I don't agree with everything people write about. One thing I read is that someone gets annoyed with young people who go to bed early. I am one of those early to bed people and I think it's funny that people are annoyed about it. I have also read about people hating to go to the girly doctor. I don't particularly enjoy it but it doesn't bother me to the extent it does others. Again, think it is kinda funny that people despise that doctor!

So it got me thinking...not everybody agrees about what other people think! That is the great thing about blogging though is that you can write about whatever the freak you want and no one can stop you. And really people can't get mad about what you write because those are your feelings and no one should tell you how to feel (unless you are totally stupid and then I reserve the right! j/k!) P.S. I hate using j/k but my smiley face was totally messed up by the other end of the ). So I am glad that there is an outlet for people to express their feelings because if there wasn't this outlet then those crazies out there (myself included) would be ranting and raving to the sacker in the grocery store or even worse, our spouses! :) So thank you all you blogger beginners out there because without you the world would be an even crazier place! BLOG ON!

so much stuff

Well I don't have a lot going on in my life but I have a lot of stuff going on in my mind. Today I will be discussing how I do not want to have friends at work. Ever. Again. I have now thought at great lengths about this. My fellow blogger had a post that said she didn't like to make friends at work and I laughed at her. Only because if I don't make friends at work I don't really have places that I go to meet new people. Well turns out she was probably right!

I have a great friend at work. But now that she is leaving she is not being the bestest friend in the world. But only in the work-friend sense. I just see a lot of different things when we work together than when we hang out. I love this girl outside of work. And when she leaves in January, things will be fantastic! I will throw her a wedding shower and be so excited. And I have had friends that I have worked with in the past and things just always change when you are "co-workers." And I am starting to make a new friend at the new place I work. We are even in an exercise program together. I just don't want to get to the point in a friendship that I can get let down by someone. And there, ladies and gentlemen is why I don't have a lot of friends. I don't like getting let down. I know Leo won't let me down because he's my spouse and we have an arrangement. And my mom won't let me down, well to be honest because she's my mom. So I understand now why people say that they don't have friends at work. Screw friends! Oh wait, I mean just at work!

Oh My God!

I started a new exercise program at the DRC. It is called Cycle Circuit. It should really be called I'm gonna hurt the crap right out of you. But it's not. I started on Monday and it is every Monday and Wednesday for 3 weeks because it is an in-between session. Well Monday went great. We cycled for about 20 minutes ran a couple laps, rode for about 10 more minutes got off and did some squats and leg lifts and then rode about 5 more minutes. I thought it was great. I felt good (oh yeah, did I mention the class is from 5:45-6:30? IN THE AM????)

Anyway, I get home, take a shower and feel great. All day. Well I go to work this morning and I squat down to get my coin out and OH. MY. GOD. I was in pain. So now, all day I have been so sore! It will so be worth it though when I look HOT! I'm so sure! :)
