January 20, 2010

So a little update on us.

Diva has had more attitude late and lot more clingy. I don't know if she just needs more or me, more play time with friends or if it's just growing pains. I know part of the problem is that we have been in the house alot on the weekends. It's hard when you have a child that likes to go, go, go and a Mom that likes to be a hermit. I am going to let her have a play date this weekend and I plan to get out of the house more once I get the car in the shop.

Me well I got hit on at a gas station on Tuesday, January 19 by a very looking gentleman named Edward. He seemed to be in his late 40's. He asked for my number and said he would call. If he calls within the next few days he will score major points. He waits till next week I will probably not answer the phone.

Marcus is still around. I am not sure if I am hesitant to go out with because of our age or because I have not been out with a guy in so long. It just feels weird to me. I really need to go out just to get one under my belt.

On the home front - the toy room looks awesome. Holli and I spent almost 5 hours over a 2 day period cleaning and organizing that room. It's so beautiful I don't want Holli to play in it. We have about 7 bags/boxes of stuff to take to Goodwill. I am thinking about posting some online, but if they do not sale with in the next few weeks they are out of the house. I love that room. This weekend my plan is to declutter the guest room. It has been a junk room since we moved in and I can't wait to transform it into my guest/office/craft room.

Other than that life is good. The Diva's Dad and I already had our major fight to start of the new year so I will know if we are going into round 2 next week. He says he hates it when I call him, but he does not reimburse me on time so I have to call him. It would seem that if he hated talking to me so much he would just pay me and be done with it.

2010 Blog Goals

I started the blog to have a "daily" glimpse at my life. I didn't do as well as I wanted to in 2009, but that is one of my goals for this year. A little tid bit hear and there. So since we are 4 days into the New Year here it goes

Diva and I celebrated New Year's Eve together. I went and got groceries, we picked up movies and saw The colony light show one last time. I did have to have my neighbors tell their guest to move their car since it was blocking my drive way. Who would block someones driveway? That just amazes me you would think nothing of blocking a stranger in or out of their driveway. This was the 4th time in December. I am going to have to talk to them. My neighbor's are really sweet, but that nonsense needs to stop.

Anyhoo, the Diva made it to 11:30 pm and I made it till at little after midnight. It beat my last year's record. I don't think I made it to 10 pm last year. lol To make up for sleeping thru New Tear's The Diva started blowing her noise maker at 8 am. THAT did not go over well and she got banned to the toy room. Yes, it is a harsh punishment to be sent to a room with every toy imaginable. The best part is that it is sound proof.

I did take a minute to reflect on 2009 and although I am not where I want to be in alot of areas of my life. I am doing so much better. I can see the accomplishments I have made in 2 years when I was at my worse. financially, I still NEED and want more, but I am doing so much better. I am still not in love with my job so this year I am going to finally go to Massage Therapy school and see if I can do something I love and make more money or maybe turn it into a full time career. I will keep you posted.

My other goal is to go back to my love of crafts and try to do one craft a month. I am proud of the fact that I finally finished crocheting Diva's blanket. The blanket is a hot mess with all of the colors and different stitches, but she loves it and it keeps you warm.

Well time to log off for now.

Happy 2010 everyone
