I am not sure what I am going to write about today so this might be a rambling post. Bear with me mmm-kay?
I have been really tired lately. Like more tired than I should be even working and doing everything that I have to do.
I went to the Doctor and they took several vials of blood to check me for anemia and thyroid issues. I found out from the phlebotomist that I have wide, flat veins. I would say that it sounds like it matches my ass but my ass isn't flat. It is wide but shapely. I have what is called an onion booty or a ghetto booty. Both terms have been applied to my ass.
I bought my airline tickets for my trip to Seattle in July. I have no idea why I can get a flight to England for the same price it costs me to fly into Seattle. Why the hell are the tickets so expensive? I got a great deal and spent less than I ever have before on tickets but they were still $369 apiece. Is it because there are no low cost airlines flying there that also fly to Chicago or Detroit? I would gladly travel to one of those hubs to save a couple Benjamins but I am always stuck flying American, Northwest or United. I usually spend between $400 to $450 per ticket so I shouldn't complain.
Oh well, it is worth it to see the fam damily. It will be nice to be there in the summer instead of winter. I usually go for the holidays but I want to be outside more and do more things.
I am hoping that while I am there that I get to meet some bloggers that I read like Egan and Sizzle. I am sure that there are more but my mind is drawing a blank. So, if you love me and want to meet me when I am in the great Northwest, let me know and I will see what I can do.
Living in Michigan isn't where I thought that I would be at this point in my life but I gotta tell ya, May is a kick ass month in Michigan. The trees are bursting with leaves and the blooms on the trees are so thick it looks like a painting. The sun is shining and the grass is lush. Well, all the grass except for in my yard. My yard is lush with dandelions. I try every year to get rid of those bastards and they keep coming back.
Anyway, back to May in Michigan. The smell of freshly mown lawn tickles my nose and always lifts my spirits. It is wonderful to know that another dismal winter has passed and that God willing there won't be more snow for another 6 months.
I am off tomorrow because I have to work on Saturday. We are celebrating Cinco de Mayo with a food day so I will be bringing my "famous" Spanish chicken dish. It is easy AND delish. Well, not as easy as chips and salsa but you know what I mean.
I am behind on my shows on TiVo. I didn't get home last night until 11:30 pm because I was over at my friends Rico & Don's house. We hung out, had dinner and watched American Idol. They have a gorgeous house and I feel so at home there. I might just get rid of my house and go live there forever. It sure would save me on my monthly bills, that's for sure.
I haven't been motivated to get my spring cleaning done. It is frustrating because I want my house to be clean and tidy but it always seems that I am behind. Having a nine year old who doesn't understand the concept of putting clothes in the laundry or putting dishes in the sink doesn't help at all. But I can't blame him for everything. I am not the neatest person in the world but I am trying to improve. I need to have another game night at my house so that I have the motivation to clean everything.
I wish I had a pillow. I want to take a nap. Sorry for the rambling post.
