Is it me or do short work weeks somehow feel longer? I feel like this week was at least 8 days long! But the weekend is here…and what a busy weekend it’s going to be. I’m going to see Bon Jovi and Kid Rock tonight, followed my a sleepover at my brother and sister-in-law’s. Tomorrow, I’m hoping to talk my mom into breakfast at the diner and then I’m going to J’s cousin’s for a Christmas in July party. Sunday, J and I will, hopefully, be working on our new patio. I’m very much looking forward to 5pm and the start of all the excitement.
And speaking of excitement…as I mentioned, the lovely Juliann sent me some extra goodies along with the giveaway necklace last week. So I decided to do a second chance drawing to share them with all of you. This little lovely was up for grabs…
I did the drawing last night and the winner is…Robyn from Fojoy. Congrats, lady!
Ok…so all the business is out of the way…time for this week’s random musings…
- I’m seriously addicted to The Real Housewives of NJ. They bring a lot of crazy to the table and I LOVE IT! That Danielle is just one hot mess. What is up with her always thinking that people are going to do her physical harm? And why do her children have to tell her how to behave like an adult? Really? And Ashley…my God how I want to give that girl the good beating that her mother should have given her years ago. That’s your mother you are talking to…show her a little respect, you spoiled brat. The show is like watching a train wreck and I just can’t look away. It’s far and away my favorite Housewives.
- The new people who live next door are extremely nice…but really strange. They have three kids who seem to be drawn to my dogs like moths to a flame. As soon as they hear my garage door go up they come flying out of the house and stand by my fence. I’ve invited them into the yard to play with the dogs, but they refuse. I think they are fascinated but afraid. So they stand just out of the dogs’ reach…which, of course, drives the dogs insane. It’s very hard to get the dogs to pee after that. Also…the kids spend most of their time sitting in the car. This week, during the heat wave, I saw them all wearing sweatpants and long sleeves and sitting in the car eating apples. Um…ok. I know they are still working on the house, so the have limited space to play inside. But there is a whole patio and pool in the back yard. I don’t get it.
- All during the week, I think of things that I want to include in this post, but usually I’m away from my computer at those moments. I always think that I should write the thoughts down, but I usually swear I’ll remember without notes. Of course, I don’t remember. So Friday rolls around and I sit here, wracking my brain, trying to remember what I wanted to write. It’s very annoying. I am putting a pad into my purse right now, so next time I think of something I can write it down on something other than the back of a receipt or a gum wrapper.
On that note, I’m ending this week. I hope everyone has a fabulous and wonderful weekend!
