RTT: Better late than never

I’ve been so bad about blogging lately but it always seems like I have a lot of random swimming around in my head so here goes with another edition of Random Tuesday Thoughts brought to you by our rebellious leader Stacy! Keely is still on hiatus but you can swing by and say congrats on the new job and take the reigns back over to give Stacy a break!

Now let’s get down to some random.

I am back to work after a surprise 3-day weekend. I was off Saturday and Sunday but then I got super-duper sick Sunday. So I got a free day. Which wasn’t really free because I definitely slept all day and did nothing but lay in bed and moan about how much I hate being sick. I don’t know if it was a stomach virus or food poisoning but let me tell you…I could have used another day off just to recuperate because honestly I’m not feeling 100% today. Luckily (or unluckily because I work Saturday) I am off tomorrow so I get another day to try to get it all back together. And I will NOT be using this day to get stuff done around the house or working out. Just to rest.

Saturday was very lovely even though my Sunday sucked. I got up early to get Leo out the door to go to breakfast with grandpa before they headed out to the annual fishing derby for the church. *Sidebar—for those of you that do not know what a fishing derby is (like my boss and my hubby) it is a competition for fishing.* So…I met up with them around 10 to see how the fishing was going and after my mom showed up Leo caught 3 fish. And by caught I mean he helped reel in 3 fish. He was so excited. He even won a prize. It was a fishing pole (which he already had) so my dad is rigging up a tackle box and putting 5 gold dollar coins inside. He’ll be so excited. After fishing I took Leo to his final day of bowling for the season and he did really well. And then I went to a baby shower for my cousin who is due in June. All in all it was a pretty nice day.

I bought a Groupon to Tanganyika Wildlife Park that is in a local town and I am pretty stoked to use it. We have to use it by May 22 and I’m going with my mom. We just have to wait for the weather to get nicer.

And by nicer I mean not 100 degrees in May. Seriously mother nature…what are you trying to pull?! I have already had to turn my air conditioner on! So stupid!

I am a horrible landscaper/gardner. Which is surprising since my dad worked for a lawncare company for 20+ years but I guess his expertise did not rub off on me. Sooo I’ve been looking at our yard a lot lately and wondering what to do. And I just think, there’s too much to do. So I let it sit in disarray for another year. Well I think this is the year that I am finally done just letting it be. I think I am going to do something about it. So happy thoughts of I think I can, I think I can.

Ok. That’s all for today. Come back tomorrow because I have more to blog about. I swear it. I won’t wait almost 2 weeks between posting again. Please come back. I’ll do better I promise! Ahem. I am off my knees now. Nothing to see here folks move along and have a good rest of your Tuesday!

Feel better soon.
THe landscaping is winning here. We really need to get to it, but there has been no cooperation from mother nature. I'm not speaking to her right now--she's sending snow to us tomorrow. She is seriously missing the meds, or ODing, something.
