Tuesday's Tidbits

  1. I finished Fifty Shades of Grey. Check back tomorrow for my commentary...if you dare.
  2. Among many of the issues I had this weekend, one of them included blogging because my hubby's laptop won't let me add pictures to my posts! What the heck? I have to figure that out if I want to keep blogging on weekends, which I do, because my laptop barely survives at this point.
  3. This week I have a dentist appointment (can't wait ha!), a scrap date with my BFF and her sister, another weekend with both girls, and The Bachelorette finale on Sunday. In the meantime, I'm going to be keeping up with housework, blogging, and working on the basement. Is it weird that this is exciting for me?
  4. Last Friday I successfully planned meals until the end of the month, grocery shopped, and only spent $160! Next week I have to do it all over again and will definitely share my process and tips!
  5. I'm really frustrated right now for some reason. I can't put my finger on it honestly. It could be the weight of the last two months bearing down on me as I return to normalcy; perhaps it's the pressure at work or the unfinished projects at home; maybe it's the inadequate feelings I have for not having a successful blog, not being able to stay home with my daughter, or effectively manage a home.
  6. Also, I left a pile of dirty dishes last night. The weekend exhausted me and I just wanted to sit down, continue reading, and watch The Bachelorette. 
  7. Speaking of which, Chris is more irritating than Kalen. He interrupts, is extremely argumentative, and comes off aggressive around other men to assert his manlihood. Gross. Sean, on the other hand, better be the next bachelor...if so, I'm hooked on the series. If they pass it off to Jef or Arie I won't watch. At least Chris Harrison put to rest that Ryan won't be getting his own show...oh, and Emily is hilarious when she isn't edited out for TV!
  8. On Saturday the girls and I went and got pedicures and it felt so awesome. B was meant for it, she was right at home and enjoyed herself so much! E sat patiently on my lap until the last 10 minutes, but she surprised me by how well she behaved. 
  9. I nearly kick myself whenever I make one of my favorite recipes and forget to take pictures to blog about it. Sheesh. 
  10. Can this week be over yet? 
P.S. I flippin LOVE my Kindle Fire...to the point that if someone said, "If you love it so much why don't you just marry it then?" I would enthusiastically reply, "I will!" and proceed to make out with it. OK, that's taking it a little too far, but maybe I'd dry hump it. For a second. Sans fifty shades because that would be weird.


  1. I finished book 1 in the 50 trilogy a few weeks ago. I'm still waiting for 2 and 3 from the library. Long waiting list...As far as being frustrated, I don't think your body is done grieving. It takes time, don't try to be wonder woman. My BIL has a fire, and I used it on Sunday. Obviously I'm too old, because the screen is just too small for me.

    1. The great think about those readers is you can change the brightness and even the font! I like being able to hover over a word I don't know and find out what it means. I heard a lot of libraries pulled that series...I don't blame them.
