We made it to the weekend! I’m very happy! I think I will lay low tonight. I am SO tired and I have to get up early in the morning. You never know though...things have a way of presenting themselves. I am going to this baby shower tomorrow for a girl I used to go to church with. Here’s the thing...I’m not trying to be offensive but baby showers...aren’t really my thing. I don’t know...I’m no good at looking excited about the lifetime commitment a person is about to make with someone they don’t even know yet. That’s sounds awful right? Again, I love my friends kids (Whitney, Stacey) but at this point in my life...no. This may sound terrible and I apologize to Dana (the pregnant one) if she ever reads this but the fact there will be cake at this shower may have been a substantial factor towards my decision to go. I decided when I first got the invitation that I would just have to cheat and have the cake...especially if I lose weight at the weigh-in tomorrow (not guaranteed). Cake is almost up there with ranch as far as food that I love to eat.
The official trivia league started yesterday which means last night was the first point opportunity of the year. We got 5th place which means we got 1 point! Hey, we may not have won but the fact that we got a point is good! If we could get 1 or more points every week...we might really have a shot when it comes to the regional qualifying stuff. We have stopped going to Buffalo Wild Wings for trivia and have temporarily or permanently (depending on everyone else on the team) switched to another place. The bar is called Wilhagan’s and they do it on Thursdays instead of Wednesdays. Really, it doesn’t matter but most of us were in the mood for a change of scenery and the host is a friend and he takes music requests (ones that he approves of) so we thought we would give it a shot.
I am excited about the activities among me in the next couple of months...all of them...on a large or small scale. I am going to two concerts next week...John Mayer and the Black Eyed Peas...very excited about both. I am getting to go to the Cheesecake Factory (my fave) for lunch on Valentine’s Day with the best Valentine ever: Jordan. (I will probably blog about my bitter, single disdain for the holiday next week) I am probably going to the casino with my dad on the 19th to see Clint Black. Last but certainly not least...SPRING BREAK IN PARIS!
I know I mention this a lot but as fun as all that sounds...it also means that I will be spending money. I posed this question on facebook where I asked folks if they knew of legal ways to make extra money. Someone said I could write a Harlequin romance...apparently it’s decent pay...there’s a thought. I think that if I want to write one I should probably read one first. Someone else suggested that I teach some adult ed classes on the side...I am definitely thinking I need to pursue these kinds of things. I not only have bills that I will be paying for the long haul...I also have current expenses that I need to make a dent in. I know that some would say that I need to stop doing all those things and I get that and I have been making cuts here and there and will probably be cutting out more but at the same time...you only live once and I love to experience everything. I love to travel and see live music in any capacity and that means I will spend money.
I think I will kick this weekend off with a bath tonight...sounds good. I hope you all have a great weekend!
I was pouring out my heart
Like a waterfall to you
And with one kiss
I was a runaway train
Flying off the track to you
I love you came flooding out
I couldn’t make it stop
I couldn’t shut my mouth.
I felt like a fool then lied and said I was sorry, but
I meant every word
Won’t take back the way I feel about you
Can’t unsay what you heard
Cause you heard me right
And I won’t try to fighting back and hide my feelings for you
