Last night, she said….

Standard

Friday was a girls night. Fun and much needed.  We had a dance party in the bar…this celebration continued thru the weekend…etc.

Saturday’s a rugby day!  NOT.  I wish…that would have been cool…But, I had a delightful day of football instead.  🙂   I went to one of the biggest games from my Alma Mater, Indiana University, which is called The Old Oaken Bucket Game. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Old_Oaken_Bucket.  ACTUALLY, I cannot just simply say that I had a fantastic “-day” because literally since Thursday I have really been enjoying myself.  This weekend was full of mischief, old friends, and lots of laughter!

Well back to Saturday, the game was a good game…even better company!  We totally had a blast.  I got back around 7pm and then met a few other friends out and about.  This is where more humor happened to find me.  I was very early so I was the first of my friends to arrive at this dive bar across town.  I went in scoped out the table situation and realized there was not an open seat in the house.  Then, I made friends with a table of guys that were sitting at a booth where I was standing.  5 minutes later  Mr. T shows up so, I just said my good byes to the kind gentleman and went from there.  He then handed me a card for a “Chip ‘n Dales” event!  AHHH THIS MAN WAS A STRIPPER!  I took the cards and scurried back to my friends.  Then later into the night, a friend of a friend was introduced.  Guess what?  He was a stripper too!!?!??!  Two in one night!  How lucky could a girl be???  UH NOT!

Also some other funny things happened…I got thrown over a guy’s shoulder and spun around, I had to climb over a booth table and ended up being “eye” level with everyone…I also ended up meeting a guy that had EVERY single opposite team liking as I did.  THAT was interesting.  From rival high schools to NFL, MLB teams….etc.  It was crazy funny.  I must say we were pretty cordial.  I found a bunch of Sweet and Low and sugar packets in my purse, walked into the Men’s Restroom, and then almost got asked out by this huge black man.  Literally, this could ONLY happen to a CatMan.  No….for real though!  It was such a great random, fun night.

 

OPA! Just felt like saying that for some reason...

 

 

Sunday, went to church with the family then to breakfast.  We continued to laugh our way thru it.  My brother as cruel as this sounds announced at the table that he had gone hunting the day before and shot a duck in the wing.  Unfortunately, he had to wring the duck’s neck (that’s the cruel sad part) but that they had some delightful duck meat to share.  We are hunter’s and gatherer’s over here!  Either way, it was funny how he told us.  Then the Colt’s lost….that was an incredibly horrible game….sigh.

Monday is a Monday.  Today I am listening to “The Muse” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xsp3_a-PMTw and working on a bunch of hodge podge items.  I feel like I am being torn in several different directions…although I cannot say I am overwhelmed.  This is good.  My aunt is in from out of town so I think that we are going to go for lunch tomorrow.  What an excellent part of my week!

My last thought for you all today is this, if you appreciate your family and friends, please tell them often.  You never know what kind of day they are having or if they will be around to see tomorrow.  🙂

Keep smiling, keep loving and keep sharing ideas with the world my loves!

Some days!

Standard

I feel lazy.  Unmotivated.  Unwilling to get off my butt to get my work done so that I can sleep soundly knowing that I am bringing everything to FL and forgetting nothing here.  Some days I despise packing…other days it’s totally fine!

I took a painting over to the craft store to get framed and I need to pick that up still, pick up my medicine (I feel like I am in geriatrics sometimes….), and still get packed.  I have to be the organized one.  I also want to gather some books to bring.

Today, I did stain two jewelry boxes.  (Mark it down, I did do something!)  I am making everyone’s X-mas gifts this year.  I figure everyone always gets what they want from the store or where ever anyways, why not put some thought and creative energy into it?  So I don’t be surprised if you get something totally just created by CatMan.  They will be fabulous I can assure you.

 

TAH DAH!

Well now I must be productive.  Have a great Sunday! DEUCES!

CatMan got her grooooove back…look out!

Yesterday was so much needed.  I think I feel more like myself than I have ever!  I feel like this stage of my life is picking up where I was shattered and create a beautiful masterpiece that will allow me to mature and grow into an amazing woman!  Not saying that I am not amazing now, but DANG (I am trying to give up my nasty habit of cussing!) think of the possibilities!?!?

I was given a card of a single Realtor in the area thanks to my “nail lady Lily”.  I will put it this way….I was definitely not his type.  He is a regular there and I am pretty sure that he was looking for a skinny mini model-esk girl that he could swing around and take out like a Barbie.

Does this look like me? UH I DONT THINK SO!

NEWS FLASH, I am definitely NOT that girl!  🙂  Well just for the record, I do clean up nice but I would rather do my own thing versus have some lousy expectations set for me to fit a mold!  I broke the mold with my awesomeness thank you!

I received a letter from my dear friend D.Robb who is in the Army.  He is one of my best friends and always knows how to make things better.  I wrote him back a letter. D. Robb and I go way back and it was just fabulous hearing from him.  I miss that man dearly!

Sunday was spent with a Nick while I was in recovery mode.  I must say we did a whole lot of nothing and it was the best night ever!  We watched Braveheart, played “spoons”, and ate Hawaiian pizza!  I swear he is like an OLD GRANDPA!  He had a crazy night on Saturday and so he too was coming down if you will.  I feel so secure with him…there is never a care in the world when I am hanging out with him and in fact he introduced me to a new therapy for being pissed off!  My newest therapy–shooting off fireworks!  HAHA.  I felt so amazingly relieved once I lit my little Sparkler Ball (yes that is what it was ACTUALLY called!).  It was a rush because I am usually not coordinated enough to use a lighter and do two things at once but, last night I conquered it!  It was amazing the amount of liberation I felt when I tossed it across the open lawn!  🙂  10:30pm hit, and grandpa was ready for bed!  HAHA!  Between him and my friend Nick man, they make my life so much better!

Now on to my Monday, today I realized I didn’t have any jeans clean for work so, had to dress up dang it!  It kind of stunk because I know that I will be doing kind of some dirty jobs if you will.  Today has been great and very productive thus far.  I was itching my foot this morning and I realize I definitely had a hole in it.  Typical Monday!

AND I just got off the phone with good ol’ Herb to which he had the HARDEST time hearing.  HE WAS COUGHING AND CLEARING HIS THROAT LIKE MAD TODAY!   I asked him how he was feeling.  I asked ” Herb how’s your lungs feeling?”,  “meh…who?”,”YOUR LUNGS”, “what the hell are you saying?”, “your L-U-N-G-S!”  (I had to actually spell L-U-N-G-S!) “Lunges?  what are you saying?”… “NO, L-U-N-G-S!  You know what you breathe with?”…..”OH LUNGS!  Oh they are just fine!  I feel good!”…. “OK that’s all I needed to know buddy!”.  This is a very typical conversation for us…going back and forward for 5 minutes until the message finally gets across.  Oh well.

Today life is good.  I am so blessed and I don’t thank God enough for it!

Simply Beautiful...
