Hello my Blogger friends....
Hope everyone had a terrific weekend and that Monday is being kind.
I am off today. My ONLY day off now. I'm still recuperating from work.....we were soooo busy yesterday!! I think we all worked 8 hours. It was just non-stop.
Don't get me wrong......I'm definitely NOT complaining just very very tired. I fell asleep early last night and woke up at 7am this morning. I stayed in bed til around 10:30 then decided to stop wasting the day away......
Even though it's still warm out here in California, it's very windy....as in hurricane-type winds. I don't mind a nice breeze.....but these gale-force winds are ridiculous!!! Major DISLIKE!!
I was able to go and see Dark Knight Rises on Saturday after work. The theatre wasn't jam-packed but about 3/4 full. A friend went Friday night and said there weren't that many people watching the movie.
I LOVED the movie!! Anyone who hasn't seen it yet needs to go. You won't be disappointed!!! I plan on seeing the movie again soon. Has anyone else seen the movie?? If so, what did you think?? Did you like the ending??
As I just realized (yes, really) that this year is already more than half over.....I, yet again, have not accomplished much. So, I have decided to change that!!
First, I decided that I am finally going to see Disneyland at Christmastime. I have relatives who live close and love Disneyland so I will be heading down there in December for a couple days and my cousin will be my guide!! I'm soooo excited! I haven't been to Disneyland since 2006 so it's really a long overdue trip.
If I was smarter with my money I would head down there more often. The airfare isn't much when you can find a deal on Southwest....and the only other thing I have to pay for is the actual pass for Disneyland. I can stay at my Uncle and Aunts house. A little extra cash for some spending money and I'm good to go!!
I also planned to redo my house this year. It is now almost the end of July and I haven't really started. So, last week I figured was a good time to get THAT ball rolling!
I started with my closet. I have a pretty good size closet. It's not a walk-in but I like it! I pulled everything out and re-organized it. It looks sooo much better!! And I only put back clothes and related items. I had been using it for storage of other things. No more!!!
I followed that up with redoing my livingroom. At some point I will get a new TV. The room is small and I have a big screen (52"). One of the old ones that extends out a mile (only a mild exaggeration). I inherited it in the divorce. I actually like the TV but it's just too big for the room. Otherwise I wouldn't even care......
Now, my couch really does need to go!! I do still like it, but it's seen better days and, again, it's way too big for this room!! When I was married I lived in a good sized house...almost 2000 sqft. Now I live in a house half it's size with most of the same furniture. It really is time to purge.
All I was able to do was empty out the livingroom, do a major clean job of floor, ceiling and walls, then only bring back what I needed. I still have a bunch of crap in my diningroom since I haven't really had time to sit down and get rid of stuff. Guess it's time to get that done......
Well, that's where I'm at right now. I need to learn better time management skills....obviously. LOL
Time to get back to my day off. Really, it's housework time :( Oh well...it needs to get done and if I don't do it, it won't get done. So, wishing everyone a great Monday and I will blog again soon!!
Until next time......
