Starting Saturday we will be in Missouri at Stockton Lake for a fun filled (I hope) week of boating and fishing. We will be back on the Holiday weekend and I will stop by and visit then. Have a great week!

I know I’m a week early but I have been thinking about the holiday and making plans so I wanted to make sure I wished everyone a great Thanksgiving!
We are actually doing the dinner on Thursday this year and that will be the first time we have had dinner on the actual holiday in, oh, at least five years. I am stoked and looking forward to it. We have a small family so it will be a quiet affair with no frills but that suits me just fine.
Do you have a big family blowout or a small get together?
We have been wanting to paint the main areas of our house for some time now since they are a pretty drab off white/grayish sort of color and we have never cared that much for it in the five years we have lived in this house. So, Hubby and I got tired of each other’s griping and decided we would paint.
Are we crazy?
They make it look so easy on the home improvement shows on television. Pick a color and go for it. Oh no, not the way it works.
We have been looking at color swatches for over a month now. Have lots of those little suckers taped every where so we can test the color. What a load of B.S. that is. We decided on a green color for our kitchen and a light mauve for the living room. The living room color actually worked out but man am I glad they do sample sizes on paint now because we tried the green color and immediately regretted that choice and I would have been very upset if we had bought enough to do the kitchen and had been stuck with that color…eeewww!
We are getting ready to paint the living room and the prep alone has been crazy beside trying to find a place for all the stuff we have in our living room. We still have some finial prep to do this morning and then it’s off to the races.
What’s more of a surprise? Hubby is going to let me paint! Silly man, he has no clue what he is in for. This should be fun.
I don’t know about you but I am so completely tired of winter and cannot wait for Spring. Our winter hasn’t been bad per se, just gloomy with very few sunny days and that’s what has driven me up the wall – no sunshine.
I am ready to walk Freddie in the park and go fishing. I’m ready to feel the sun on my face. Just seems like this winter has bothered me more than prior years.
I love the Travelocity Gnome commercials, especially this one:
I sing along with this when ever it comes on and I am driving my Hubby crazy every time I do. I hear from him in the background –“I Know!” I think he gets the hint that I am ready for some fun and sun.
But I can’t help it I have to sing along with the Gnome, I feel his pain!
This last year was a rough one financially and I couldn’t travel with Hubby when he went out into the boonies of Kansas. I had to stay at home and stare at the walls and the animals. Well guess what – I get to go and it looks like we will be gone for two weeks.
Now I know that must not seem like much to you but to be able to get away from the house even if it isn’t to sunny Jamaica or places like that is still much preferable to his being gone and me staying at home alone. At least it is different scenery, different food, etc. and sort of like a mini adventure.
Okay, I made that last part up but hey! I GET TO GO!!!!!
I really need to get a life…..
I will be posting while out in the boonies so stay tuned, you never know what might go on out there.
I got this video in an email from Knitting Daily.com and it is just freaking hysterical or at least I think so.
According to the email, people are having Ugly Sweater Parties. Yep, you read it right. Thrift stores across the country are being wiped out of their ugly sweaters especially ugly Christmas ones that were so popular in the 80’s. They compete to see who has the worst ugly sweater.
Don’t have a sweater ugly enough? Well don’t you worry. Just ask your friends, spouse, kids or even Santa to buy you one at Ugly Sweater.com and if that wasn’t good enough they have party tips for the Ugly Sweater Parties. !?!?!?!
What will they think of next?
Excuse me while I go look in my closet…….
