I know it's been a while...

I know it's been a while since I last posted. But in all honesty, I have had NOTHING going on worth writing about.

I could tell you all about how crazy busy I am at work, launching a new software program and gearing up for the rollout to the field reps and users of said software program, but it's really boring to type, so it has to be boring to read.

I could tell you about the custody battle that my sister in law is undergoing right now, but really, there is no news. The next court date has been set for April 15th, and hopefully at that time a judge will put a formal custody arrangement in order.

I could tell you how tired I am, but that's just whining, and nobody likes a whiner.

So, you see, there really is nothing note worthy going on. I'm off to do the travelling roadshow with work in a week and a bit, hopefully exciting things will happen while I am away and can provide you with a much more interesting post. It should be good as I am going to see my parents, who are always good for generating posts, as well as our good for nothing renters. BTW - still no rent money. How thrilled am I???

Okay, back to the grind. More of a real update soon, I promise!

The Reveal

Okay, so it's been a while since I got my tattoo, and even though I actually got it finished over the weekend, I don't have a photo of it complete. But I do have a photo of it from a couple of weeks ago when it was not complete.

So without further ado.... may I present....

My Evil Daisies!!!!

How great is that???

Happy Birthday!

To Me!

As I stretched and yawned and hauled my ass outta bed this morning, I realized that turning 30 is just like all of my other birthdays... just another day. But, hubby did get up and wish me a happy birthday (which was really nice, cause I was up SUPER early for work), and even Lynne, mom mom-in-law was up and puttering around when I left, so she too wished me a happy birthday.

While it sucks that I am stuck here at work, it is really nice that I get to go home soon, and have someone else make dinner. I think that hubby and I are going to try to do my birthday dinner tomorrow night (with just the two of us), cause Lynne was saying this morning that the whole family is coming by tonight for dinner to help me celebrate... How cool is that? All these people that I love dearly, getting together to help celebrate me. That's so great.

I was talking to my sister in law yesterday, and she was asking me if I felt like there was anything in my life that I thought I would have done by the time I turned 30. I thought about it alot last night, and I have come to the conclusion, that nope, there really isn't anything that I "wished" I could have done before now. I'm happily married, and I have pretty well everything I want. A family who loves me, friends who are always there when I need them, a great job that keeps me fulfilled. I had thought at one point in time that I might have kids before now, but I can honestly say that I am glad that I don't have any yet. Not that I don't want them, I just am enjoying life too much to want to devote all of my time to a wee person who needs me. I hope that doesn't sound too selfish. I just kinda feel like when the timing is right, we will have kids, but right now, I am happy to be able to kick back, relax, have hubby bring me a nice glass of wine and curl up with a good book.

Hope you all have a great day, and look out, cause I'm in my thirties now!!!

love ya!

Tomorrow is my Birthday!

The Aftermath...

Please be patient with me. . I am extremely tired, and I am going to try to share some of the photo's from my birthday party with you.

But first, I need some coffee. Wait, I hate coffee. I need some tea. Ya, tea.

Okay, I'm back. The party was a HUGE success. Everyone had a very good time, most of us had a few too many drinks, but we are all safe and accounted for. We played a couple of drinking games, which is NEVER a good idea, but much fun was had, and lots of laughter was heard through out the night. I retired to bed at 3:30am, and was up by 8:30am Sunday. After determining, that
A) I didn't feel so badly;
B) I was still drunk; and;
C) I am really hot
I promptly went back to sleep. We finally got up around 10:30, and one of our friends made us breakfast. Then we took a short drive to the Good Old US of A and I did some shoe shopping. We didn't get home until almost 9, and then I had a hard time sleeping. I was up until about midnight, and was up again this moring at 6:30. So my brain is a bit foggy, and I am really, really, really very tired.

As promised, here are some pictures from the party. I will attempt to describe what is happening in the picture as best I can.

Here we have a lovely shot of the birthday girl, drunk, and smiling. At least I am a happy drunk.

Here we have me, drunk, thinking that I can arm wrestle. I can't. And now I have a bruise on my elbow. Dammit!

This is my husband's cousin. We are playing a wicked drinking game.

during that same drinking game, rules were made. One of the rules that was set (by me) was the husband had to drink his beer out of a wee cat dish. (Yes, we cleaned it out first!)

Okay, that's it for now. I will get around to posting some more pictures soon.

I need a nap.
