8 Things You Don't Know About Me....

I've been tagged by G&D{elicious}. 8 Things you don't know about me. Let's see what I can come up with. ;)

1. I moved in with K after knowing him only a month or so. A situation came up and he was on his own. There was no way he would be able to pay bills on his own. He didnt even have a vehicle or a drivers license. The kind hearted me said sure, we can do this. Then the fun began. ;)

2. I'm 4 years older than K. He was only 17 when we started going out. I was a total cradle robber. ;)

3. I'm 30 years old and I still have a fear of the closet monster. My husband laughs at me but I refuse to sleep with the closet doors open.

4. I grew up in the country, literally 20 mins from civilization, swore everyday after that I would never go back to that. Now I can't wait to sell my house and buy land in the middle of no where. I want the country life back.

5. When the weather changes I get frisky. No, not like that you pervs. I just get happier. This is with every season. Not just one in particular. For someone that hates change I sure do adapt to it happily. Sometimes hehe

6. I love to cook. Seriously. I'm so happy the weather is getting cooler so I can get back to it. It gets so hot here during the summer I refuse to cut the oven on to cook. So most of our summer meals are grilled or something super easy so I dont have to run the oven for a while

7. I regret my wedding. Not the fact that I got married, the wedding part. I let my mother take over and it was not what I wanted. I wish we would have eloped.

8. I drive a truck. A big one. A Dodge Ram 4x4 with glass packs exhaust, mud tires, that's so high off the ground I have to jump to get in. I love it and wouldn't trade it for the world. :)

OK, fess up

Who cried at the end of Grey's when Denny showed up? *raises hand*

I loved this episode. Loved it. Well with the exception of the damn Erica/Callie shit.

OK, I'll leave it at that. I dont want to say too much just in case someone is lurking that hasn't seen the show.

Now, off to watch Ugly Betty. I'm so glad my fall shows are back! :)

Who's ready for it?

"It" you ask? It, is Grey's Anatomy! It has been way too damn long. I wasn't too thrilled with the ending last season. I'm glad to see Meredith and Derek back together again but the Erica and Callie story line turns my stomach. Callie is hot. Erica is ... not.

Now, the Callie/Mark story line. That's just HOT! I could follow that the entire season.

So, dear writers of Grey's, please don't disappoint this season. I've already seen one spoiler from the first episode and it's "meh". Predictable. But, either way, I'm still looking forward to this season!

Who wants to come help finish painting all the trim in my house?

I seriously suck at this home owner thing. I just can't get motivated to finish it. There's so much left to paint. We have to paint the ceiling in the entire house. Well except for the hall bath and guest bedroom since they are the only 2 finished rooms in the house.

I envy D. She sets her mind to painting a room in her house and it's done in 24 hours. LoL Me on the other hand, it's been months and I still haven't painted the trim in my hallway. So shameful!

I guess if we really want to try to sell this house any time soon I realllly need to get off my ass. :D

So, anyone up for a paint party!??!

All I want for Christmas...

Yes, I know it's still months away but all I want is a gift card to Sephora. I want, no, no, need new make up. And brushes and all things pretty and shiny. ;)

4 years ago today

I married the love of my life. Now, this is funny since I swore for years that I would never get married. I watched my parents marriage crumble after 18 years. That kinda makes you jaded towards marriage. K was the same. His parents marriage was worse than a disaster and he watched his mom marry an alcoholic. That ended horribly but while she stayed with him, K was miserable.

So after witnessing that why would we want to get married? Then he proposed. And like a sucker I cried and said yes. 4 months later we were married. Yes, 4 months. We had been together for 6 years. We both knew we didnt want a huge wedding. Hell, we didnt even want a wedding at all. It was my mom that wanted a wedding. We so should have eloped.

But, here we are. I'm as happy now as I've ever been. I love him unconditionally and I know he feels the same. I think we fought so much in the beginning of our relationship we have nothing left to fight over. Yes we'll disagree on things but we've learned to talk it out. Hardly anything gets held in anymore.

OK OK I'll stop now. ;) I'll spare you all the gory details.

Why can't I be crafty?

Seriously all of my friends are crafty. Me on the other hand doesnt have a crafty bone in my body. Which is weird considering I took art for years.
My brain just doesnt work like that. I can't just look at something and say Oh I'd love to turn that into this.

It would come in handy though considering I can't finish decorating my house. I can never figure out what to put what where and when I do figure out what I want I sure as hell can't afford it. LoL Champagne taste on water budget. That's me. ;)

House Projects

Since moving in 3 years ago today, we've had project after project going on. Even though we are no where near finished we have gotten a lot done.

The previous owner loved wallpaper. She had either wallpaper or wallpaper border in every room in the house. Every room. Ugh. Well the wallpaper was just stuck to the dry wall. No primer, nothing. It was a nightmare to get down. It took half the sheet rock with it.
So we had to re-mud the entire hall bathroom and sand it down. We're currently doing the same to the master bath since our dumb selves painted over the wallpaper. I so do not recommend doing that.

Same scenario. Wallpaper stuck straight to the wall. We're currently mudding it right now. Working on sanding the first layer of mud. We've got one layer left, sanding then we are going to mix primer with the mud and roll it on. Cover whatever imperfections are left from just sanding. Then, sand again. Then prime and paint. We're also going to rip up the linoleum and put tile down. So we still have a while before we can move back in to our master bath.

Here's a few pictures to give you an idea. ;)

This is what the wallpaper looked like. Hubby is taking the mirror down. We tried to save it. We were just going to have it cut down a little since it was so huge. Well, we didnt know that they had the epoxy crap ever 5 inches on that mirror. I was not happy.

This is what happens when wallpaper is stuck straight to the wall. No primer, nothing. This happened in both the front and back bathrooms.

Excuse the mess. *blushes*

So this is where we stand now. This is our current project. Right now there isn't much to see as far as an updated picture goes. We still have to take the current light fixture down and fix whatever impurities are around it.

I have to go vacuum up the dust in a minute so I'll get an updated picture then.

I wish I could remember

what it felt like to sleep all through the night. Ever since carpal tunnel hit me with a vengeance, I've been waking up in the night. That was a month ago. Well night before last, I took a pain pill because my back was hurting (again). Figured, take a pill, sleep it off and feel better the next day. Well I didn't sleep that night. Up every damn hour.

So last night I just went to bed. No aides. I still woke up because I was hurting. FF to tonight, I took a pain pill. I'm up. I had problems getting to sleep. Just wasnt sleepy. I finally get to sleep at 10:30 after going to bed at 9:30. Then I'm up at 11:30ish. Then 12ish and every 30 minutes after that.

It's now 2, almost 3. I've been up since 2. I'm exhausted, my back hurts and I feel my eyes slowly swelling shut.

Dude, seriously, I just want to sleep all night. I want to remember what that feels like. I want to wake up fresh and rested.

I'm going to try to sleep some later since I have to work today. Boss can be a total smart ass some days and I really dont want to hear it. Not today. As tired as I am I just might snap.

I'm going to try to not take a nap later but instead go buy some tylenol pm. See if that will help with the pain some and knock my ass out for the night.

Isn't that what you call your friends?

I'm whoring out 2 of my friends that have been nominated at Divine Caroline for blog awards.

JannyPie is the most creative person I know. Her blog deserves being nominated. Crafting is definitely her gift.
You can click here to vote for her. You will have to sign up, but they don't spam you.

D. Oh my crazy D, of All Things G&D. She has also been nominated. She has blown me away with her writing. I know that child has a lot of 'spunk' in her, but I never knew how much until she started her own blog. Which I might add, has blown the fuck up. This exfarm girl has turned into a blogging sensation over night. I'm so jealous! ;)
You can vote for her here!

If y'all would go vote, I sure would appreciate it!

Oh how I have missed it. I'm sad Big Brother is over but out with the old, in with the new. ;)

Le Sigh

Another weekend doing nothing. We need friends. Real friends. Do they even exist anymore? Someone that will hang out with you, grill out, watch movies, have a drink or 2. You know, the normal stuff. Not someone that will use you. That only calls when they want something. Or...if they do agree to do something, they back out at the last minute because something better came along.
It's like the older you get the harder it is to find trust worthy friends. Why? Shouldn't we be old enough now to not play games?

My fun filled morning....

Our battery in the truck has been slowly dying. I get in it this morning and it would hardly start. Uh oh. So I figure, we'll go get one this weekend, I get paid today.

So I head to Kroger to fill up. I get in the truck, no power. Oh shit. Dont do this to me. The only person I know that could rescue me is 45 mins away at work.

I try calling K. No answer. 4 times. So I call my boss. He makes a rude ass comment and says he'll send someone over. Oh I was flaming by then. I'm pissed bc we knew the battery was dying and boss had no right to make a f'n smart ass comment to me. I was broke down. Shit happens.

So I wait. I'm IMing BFF to keep busy. 30 mins, no show. Oh I'm really ticked now. It only takes 15 mins to get there from work. Kevin calls MIL to come rescue me. Shit. Now I'll be stuck with her for half the day bc she wont leave my side while I go get a battery. Well at least I'll be off stranded island here.

She's finally on her way, this is 45 mins later. Well here comes the guy I work with to rescue me.

He tells me that boss never said which Kroger I was at. So he never bother asking. He chose one and went to it, nope. Chose another, nope. Finally he calls boss and said where I was. Um, it never occurred for either boss to tell him in the first place and dude to never ask. Stupid men!

So he has to follow me to the parts store bc the damn truck wont stay running.

Get there. I was there for another hr. I've been gone since 9:30 this morning and JUST walked through my door.

2 and a half hours later. Dude. Not cool.

The battery was leaking so one of the terminals was completely corroded. He worked on that SOB for an hr. Now....I would get stuck with the dumb ass that's slower than 2 snails fucking.

So I'm now home. Didnt go to work. I did get a chance to get to the post office to mail out a certain whores book though :whistle
We're going to try me going in Monday.

So 2.5 hrs later and $100 broker. :sigh

I have now corrupted 2 more people by convincing them to read the books. I never knew a book could be so addictive.

I am hoping and praying that Ms. Meyer changes her mind and finishes the Midnight Sun book. I would love to read Edwards POV. Plus I need something to keep me going. Those books are a life force to me. lol

Any one else a fan? I've been trying to figure out how I'm going to drag my husband to see this movie with me. I might have to recruit BFF to go see it with me. I just won't tell her it's really a tween movie. ;)

My new favorite blog/website

I spent about 2 hours yesterday reading past entries. There's a little bit of everything in there. So cool!

Can I tell you

just how flipping excited I am that the sun came out today?! LoL I know, cheesy right. Well I havent seen the sun since last Saturday and I have seriously missed it!

Hope everyone had a great day today!

Weekend Recap

I think we are the most boring people alive right now lol Not much went on to justify a recap but I'll write it out anyway. :)

Friday K took off work to get a few things done, basically he was ready for a long weekend. He went searching for parts for his new project car and I went to work. Once I got off we were going to see a movie but decided to wait for a later showing so we can go eat Mexican. So good! Love me some Mexican food!
We left there and met up with a friend that was getting his tattoos. (yes plural) I was so ready to get one I could feel it! (see post below)
Well since we sat around there forever we were too late to see Death Race. I have a huge phobia of walking into an already dark theater. I have a tendency to bust my ass. Mix that with a theater full of people and I just can't do it.
So instead, we saw The Dark Night. Eh. It was good but not 3 hours worth of my time good. It was only us and one other guy in the theater. Gotta love going in the middle of the day. :P
Oh let me tell you, since the movie was so damn long, the guy in front of us goes to get up and obviously either his leg or ass or something was asleep. He stands up and wobbles. Literally, wobbles, like a newborn horse. Well my loud ass husband says "Did you see that guy almost bust his ass?" OMG I'm not sure if I was ready to fall off my seat from embarrassment or from pure laughter. I know the guy heard him. We were the only ones in there. So he goes to walk down the steps and stops, grabs the railing and spins around. Whatever it was, was dead asleep. He couldnt walk. Y'all I almost lost it. I dont think it would have been that funny if he didnt jump up like ass on fire as soon as it was over.
We left there and we to visit his uncle and then my step sister that has a week old newborn. ♥ She's so pretty!

Saturday was nothing for me. My husband left me all alone so he could go ride 4 wheelers with the boys. I wasnt happy but I can't deny him, so off he went. All day.

Sunday, we sat around most of the day. Worrying if we should go stock up for Gustav. Glad we didnt. Gustav was a bust for us. Yay ☺ That makes me happy though. Did get our pool in the beginning stages of draining it. K got the back yard cut. That was about it. Nothing special.

Monday, Gustav hit. It was a rainy mess. We did venture out to Wal-Mart. Never go to wally world bored. You spend lots of money you dont need to. And of course, last night was the night my computer screen got screwed up. I woke up this morning, started my computer and the entire thing was gone. Weird shade of gray. I was pissed. After it warmed up for a while it came back up but I was freaking until then. I still only have 3/4 a computer screen so all of my windows are just shrunk. :( That makes me sad.

Oh and I go to walk my mail to the mail box, step outside and almost bust my ass. Damn Gustav and his never ending rain has gotten my front porch drenched. So as soon as I walked out, my first step I slid. :( It hurt.

So that's my update for the weekend and a little update from this morning. How was yours? Anything good?

My laptop screen is fucked. It had already been dropped so there was a line at the bottom that I couldnt see through. Well now my husband shut the lid with something between the computer and the laptop and it's now a quarter of the way up the damn screen that's white. FUCK ME!

I checked prices and they are $300. I do not have that right now. Not on top of our garage door being broke and everything else. Rawr!

Any one want to donate a new screen to me? Pweeze!
