I usually hate Wednesdays...

BUT today has the makings of being a FABULOUS day.

Yesterday was not so fabulous, mostly because i felt like a zombie all day long. By the time I got home from teaching last night (around 7:15) I was pretty dead. I took a nice long bath in my jetted tub while watching The Big Bang Theory season 2 and then by the time I was done with all of that I took my latest read out into the living room and SwingKid showed up a few minutes later. At this point I was fading fast and it was probably 8:30 or so. I put my head in his lap and dozed on the couch for a little bit until he told me to go brush my teeth - and then he tucked me into bed. I definitely felt like a little kid, but I was okay with that. :o) I fell asleep around 9:45 or so and slept until 6:45 this morning. I feel WONDERFUL!

Also, today is spoonme day. I love spoonme. :o) So let us pray that today is a happy day (especially since yesterday was NOT a happy day)

Monday Marvels

Well, my dear blogging friends, it is Monday. Mondays seem to keep coming even though I continually pray to have them stop. I firmly believe my weekend needs one more day to it in order to make me happy. Alas, I don't see how that is possible.

Hopefully, this week is less stressful than last week and doesn't make me want to pull out my hair. HOWEVER, if I do get to that point I'll just go shoot some turkeys because everyone knows shooting turkeys relieves stress.

This wonderful turkey game of awesomeness is also counting as my monday marvel post for the week. I love finding old computer games online (like Oregon Trail! go here for a parody on said classic game) and thus I share my love with you.

Here's hoping for a stress-free week!!

Monday Marvels

Well folks, it's Monday. Today, I'm not a fan of Monday. I feel like my weekend was just too short. It was a different weekend then expected in some regards, but different is not necesssarily bad. :o)

Today's Marvel is that of a series of books that I've been reading that I think you would like too!

The Wicked Lovely series by Melissa Marr is a wonderful series about faeries. I love faeries.

Right now there are 3 books in the series, Wicked Lovely, Ink Exchange, and Fragile Eternity, with two more on the way.

I LOVED Wicked Lovely, enjoy Ink Exchange, and I'm still trying to figure out how I feel about Fragile Eternity. It might warrent a re-read in a few places. Fragile Eternity just went places that I never thought I woudl end up in with this series. thus, I spent much of the book just trying to figure out what was going on and where it was going to end up, and when it didn't have a solid ending I let out a squeal and tried to roll over in my bed and go to sleep. This did not work so well and now I have to wait until April (7 months AWAY!! GAH!) for the next installment...sigh.

Please do not let this deter you from reading the books. They are wonderful and easy to read. :o)

guess what?

It's FRIDAY!!!

woo hoo! gotta love Friday, I know I do. :o)

1. My car is kind of bland, but super reliable. Love you Scuttle!.

2. My dad's birthday is coming up next.

3. Lately, things seem calm and refreshing.

4. My bedroom, with just the light on, is one of my favorite 'hiding' places.

5. What happened to circus peanuts in the grocery stores? They only sell the teeniest packages for enormous prices.

6. Today, getting things done at work is not impossible!

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to a reception/date night w/SwingKid :o), tomorrow my plans include the BYU Football game and hopefully finishing the panels for the lv room and Sunday, I want to catch up on my sleep!

my left birdie finger ITCHES!!!!

I really hate Wednesdays. it seems that no matter what I have planned for the day (and I always try put extra special events on Wednesdays...) it is always my least favorite day of the week.

today is no different. I even wore my red-hot heels today! AND I'm getting SpoonMe w/Sister B and my hair done by SwingKid's sister later this evening.

But is still Wednesday. The work day still seems to drag ON and ON and my ballet class tonight still only has THREE students so the hour seems to DRAG on forever (unlike my hour long class tomorrow night that goes WAY too fast).

SIGH. Hopefully by the end of the day I'm feeling better than I am right now. It's just that after-lunch slump


my left birdie finger ITCHES!!!!!!!!

I have decided that someday I am going to the coolest wife and mom in the world.

You're probably wondering how in the world I am going to manage that aren't you? making these AWESOME sandwiches for my lovely family's sack lunches. :o)

Seriously? Aren't they so freaking cool?
Thanks to Design Mom for showing me how to be so awesome.
