Locks of Love

12 inches of my hair was donated to Locks for Love.  

It's just hair, give if you can.  



Cancer has turned my live upside down and broken my heart.

I've taken a Stand.

 Will You?

Landscaping Project

I wish I could take credit for bringing my front yard to life but I can't... 
The only thing I did was write the check. 


This is the landscaping that came with the house
The tree died after the winter
We replaced the tree and added a few flowers

Taking a new shape
Rock boarder
Continuation of the rock boarder

I can't wait to watch my plants grow up and fill in
The landscaper left room for us to plant flowers
Knock out roses anchor the corners 
The landscaper put in  Cherry Tree
Rocks all the way back & shrubs to cover the ugly meters & gas lines

Our fancy new landscaping was brought to you by: Rough Edge Concepts.  If you live in the Memphis area and like what you see, give them a call at: 901.626.4780.

The In-Laws Visit Part 1

Every month I will work the 1st weekend and then I get to take 1.5 days off the next week.  I like this.  I usually will work Monday-Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday-Thursday until 1pm.  I hate working 11.5 days in a row but the long weekend is always so wonderful... until this weekend.  My in-laws wanted to come up for a visit.  I do love Chaz's mother and her husband but I also like quite time.  I'm kind of a boring person, on my days off I like to read a book, work outside, shop... pretty much whatever I want.  I like alone time, I think everybody should get one day a month to just do what they want.

My long weekend didn't get off to a very good start.  My boss is very selfish and has been using the excuse of working 2013's budget for months.  She can't do the simplest of tasks like taking care of a folder that she got out because she doesn't have time because of the budget (whatever, it's call being F*cking lazy).  Well, the budget has finally come due and she hasn't done a damn thing on it and is now in a panic.  This happened last year and if she is around next year it will happen then too.  Anyhow, Boss leaves early last Friday and takes all of her stuff with her because she is going to "work from home" to get the budget done over the long Labor Day weekend.  Then on Sunday she calls me at work and said she hurt herself on the boat.  I'm not Sherlock Holmes or anything, but I'm pretty sure she wasn't working on her budget on a boat...  Monday we were closed (yahoo for holiday pay).  Then on Tuesday, after we've opened Boss calls me and said she can't come in because her bruise hurt too bad and that she will be working from home, same for Wednesday.  Thursday she arrives late and is loosing it because the budget is due on Friday.  Long story semi shortened I didn't get out of work until 4:30 and my in-laws were sitting at our house when I got home and it hasn't been quite the entire weekend.  They left early this morning and I don't think Chaz and I have said more than 20 words to each other.  We are doing our own thing and enjoying the peace and quiet.

Top Ten

Here are the Top Ten reasons that have been keeping me from Blogging (in random order).

1.  Work:  I find that I have little to no desire to turn on my computer after I've been on one most of the day.  Also, most days I bring some form of work home with me and there goes my night. 

2.  House:  Since becoming a home owner I've found out that A). it doesn't clean itself and B). lawn care is a bitch.  Granted that my husband does help but all the weeding, edging, pruning and watering takes for f*cking ever.  Once you think you've done a really good job of weeding out the flower beds there is tomorrow to remind you that you haven't actually done a damn thing because there are a million new weeds.  

3.  Social Media:  When I do decide to turn on my computer there are so many other sites that steal my interested because they are so mind numbingly easy to use and addicting.  I swear the devil invented Pinterest, Twitter and Facebook.  

4.  I feel like I'm starving:  As soon as I get home I'm ready to eat... which doesn't happen because my husband (who only gets home an hour before me) never thinks to start dinner.  By the time dinner and dishes are done it's almost 8pm and well after the sun goes down, so does my drive to do anything. 

5.  My Cell Phone: It has amazing apps for everything so I never have to turn on my computer.  I could write my blog from my cell phone, but come on lets be realistic, I will never write more than a 3 sentence email on my phone so there is no way I will ever write a post on it. 

6.  The Husband:  Nuff said

7.  Booze: Drinking and Blogging are probably not a good idea.  Since I deal with some of the most incompetent & irritating people on the face of the planet, I drink sometimes a lot.  

8.  Cleaning:  Ooohhh the cleaning!  I hate to clean but can't stand to see things dirty or cluttered.  Living with a man means I'm always cleaning something.  

9.  Books: Since I have an app for Amazon on my phone, book buying has been  little too easy.  In the last month I've bough a total of  11 books which I've read 4 of.

10. My Brain: It's broken.  I'm sure of it.
