Popsicle Toes

Yup, I have 'em. But everything else is as warm as hot apple pie (it might have something to do w/the peri-menopausal thing going on w/me.)

Long time . . .

I've been caught up in the facebook world and have just started to revisit some of my blogger friends. So I tell a blogger friend, 'hey, long time no see and btw if you're on facebook, look me and send me a friend request.' Yeah, he does and I ignore it 'cause I don't know who this person is. I feel so horrible! LOL. So hopefully he'll send me another request 'cause I don't know his real name (he knows mine). You know how the blogger world is . . anonymity was how we posted w/out being judged.

So March is just about over . . how weird is that!??

Should have been all about my BOYS, but actually turned out to be my GIRLS!!

I had one of the best weekends of my life last weekend and it's 'cause I have the best friends EVER!! My beloved boys let me down (and in front of my second most hated team, cowgirls being first), but I have to say, those dang bronco fans were fun. I wanted to not like any of them ('cause that's how I am), but I ended up loving all we encountered (except grumpy 'ole man and woman in front of us who had no business being there). Memories for the book, that's all I gotta say.

it's all about the "towel"

The morning started out with the girls whining big time 'cause it was snowing. You shoulda heard 'em. CRY BABIES!! They annoyed me but thankfully the room we stayed in was a suite so I went to the other room and watched pre-game football highlights and removed myself from the cry baby sally's. They eventually formed a plan that included a trip to Target to buy extra layers of clothing. It only got better from there. We decided to eat fish tacos at Rubios (my favorite fast food restaurant that I thought was only in San Diego), after we loaded up on goodies from Target. We soon headed to Invesco Field. AWESOME!! Found a parking lot right away and met some of the nicest STEELER fans who invited us to tailgate w/them (which we did). But soon it was getting close to game time and I wanted to head in.

me w/girls, holding my cherished ticket

same girls who were whining that morning . . .

our view of "my boys"

i loved being here . . .

quick story . . . this pic was taken after karen (in black coat) fell over the seats in front of us. she was cheering for the broncos after they scored, and she lost her balance. if you look closely, you'll see tears in our eyes from laughing AT HER (that's what she gets).

what else can I say . . .one of my best trips ever!! Got to see my Steelers play!

Could it be . . .

my attitude?? I got pulled over by the military police yesterday (work on a military base) and got wrote up for speeding. Possibly it was my answering her questions sarcastically that I will now be paying an $84 dollar ticket!!

mp: do you know why you've been pulled over?
me: not really . . . (attitudeeee)
mp: you were speeding, going 34 in a 25.
me: that's speeding??? (attitudeeee)

I think it's 'cause I'm a woman and so were both the mp's that pulled me over (you know - we can get kinda bitcy w/each other). Oh yeah, they pulled me over in my work parking lot . . . that was nice too. Hi co-workers, yeah, it's me, getting a ticket . . .

TGIF . . .

Why do we love friday's so much? For me, and this really shows my age, it's 'cause I know I get to sleep in on the weekend. I know to some, sleeping in is a waste of time, but to me, I actually get energized and feel I can take on the new week.

So, here's some more randomness . . .

- next weekend is my girls weekend. we're headed to denver to watch my beloved steelers play the broncos. can't think of anything sweeter than a 'W' for the steelers at invesco field!

- every year in the fall (green chili season) mom stalks up on her stash of fresh chili by peeling and bagging two gunny sacks full. i went and helped her a couple nights ago and so have been eating this delectable treat since. fry up some corn tortillas and add chili and cheese, yummers . . . doesn't take much to make this girl happy.

- baby girl, emma june, turns 8 this weekend. its hard to believe my sons are older, but now my niece is too? it freaks me out that time really does fly, the older i get.

- yesterday at work, a co-worker and i cleaned files out of 10 long file drawers with stuff from 1992. left 12 bags of recyclable paper and 5 trashcans full of crap. budget people . . . we love our paperwork!

- i used to be wonderful w/puzzles (the brain tease type). well this week a girlfriend brought me a nine piece puzzle (3x3 squares) of hot air balloons. it took me three days to figure it out. now granted i am at work and didn't spend more than a few minutes at a time w/it, but three days!!??? sucking brain - she ain't what she used to be.

- i get email from several of the catalogs i buy from on a routine basis. this morning i received one from one of my favs and was finding things i loved. started my list and had the shopping bag filling up, but then, i stopped. i actually stopped and closed it w/out buying anything. weird! i must be going on a trip soon . . . :)

peace out!

It's been awhile . . .

I know, but for some reason I feel like writing today. Not about anything in particular, but just feel like saying hi. HI.

It's been a busy summer. Been playing alot. Did my annual San Diego trip and as usual, that place is magic. Also have gone to the 'lake' w/the Shawski's (fag and her family). If you wanna see some great pics, my girl 'ms. brit' has some pictures posted on her blog. Been to two concerts this summer, John Legend (AWESOME) and Heart (Ann and Nancy still have it!). Both concerts my girl fag, went w/me and vice versa (she took me to Heart, I took her to John Legend).

But what I'm shaking in my boots about now, is a trip my girls and I will be taking in October. We'll be heading to Denver to see the five time superbowl champs Pittsburgh Steelers play the Broncos. OMG I can't wait! Yes it'll be wonderful to be w/my girls, but come on, to be able to watch the Pittsburgh Steelers . . . makes this girl quiver thinking about it! :)

My baby is leaving me - he's leaving ABQ and moving to Austin. I know he's been out of his mama's house for over two years now, but geez, this is making me feel shaky. Yes I have family there (the best kind of family too . . . the kind that will be there for him no matter what). But still, I'll really miss him. I just hope this new job will really take him places - he so loves what he's doing.

Well this post is a start - we'll see if I keep it up. I've missed checking in on everyone, but recently did a quick browse of everyone on my daily visit's list (those that are still active). It was great to see some of the posts and I won't stay a stalker, I'll comment again once I start making it routine.

peace out . . .

Can I just apologize now to everyone . . .

I'm just not feeling this blog anymore. I do enjoy reading others, but I'm a bad blogger. I'm going on sabbatical for awhile . . .maybe permanently, but I'll play that by ear. (what does that mean....play it by ear....???) :)

love you all . . .
