Good-bye to my 20's

Its becoming a harsh reality to me that very VERY soon I will no longer be in my fantastic 20's. How in the world did this happen? Where did the time go?  Can't I stop this horrible reality?  I have loved my 20's. Fantastic things have happened to me during my great decade.  I graduated college, got a real job, bought a brand new car (with power windows!), got saved, moved out on my own, got married, bought a house, got pregnant, had my first surgery(c-section), had my second surgery(gall bladder),  and gave birth to the most fantastic son in the world!
How can my 30's even compete?  I wonder will I become wiser?  Will I have another child?  Will I have more surgeries?  Will we buy a new house?  Will I finally get the mini van I have wanted all my life? 

I'm scared to move on.  When I was young 30 was so old.  Its shocking to even say it.  I have accomplished  much, so I should move on.  I should go into my 30's gracefully.  Not kicking and screaming.  I have a feeling I will be going into my 30's very quietly.  (My husband doesn't understand what he should do for this occasion.) 

So, in the next few weeks I plan to soak up my 20's. Let my 20's know how good they have been to me. I might just act like a carefree 20 year old.  Because very very soon... I will be saying Good-Bye to my 20s.

Where is my Shower Cap???

We had a fantastic vacation. Much needed.  Hudson had a blast swimming and ruling the condo.  I love vacations.  I love relaxing, eating all I want, napping, and finishing books I'm reading. 

My husband loves taking the free shampoos/lotions, shower caps, and mouthwash they give you in the hotel rooms we stayed in on the way down and back home. 

I always get home and I'm cleaning out his bag and find all these tiny bottles.  What do you do with the bottles?  Do I put them in our cabinets or keep them in the bags?  I once read you can sit them out for guests you have.  We don't have that many guests! 

I asked him, "David dear, why do you always take the free toiletries from the bathroom at the hotels?" 

He replies, "Their Free!!!  You never know when you might need them!"

I have to add, that I am almost positive we will NEVER be so poor that we cannot afford shampoo, lotion, or mouthwash.  Also, I have not once in my life used a shower cap.

Retail Therapy

I never really realized how much I despise retail workers.  It starts with the fact of them being the snobbiest people I have EVER met. I want to look at them and say, "You make maybe $6 an hour. I make way more than you and I CAN afford your clothes!"  I mean if you dare walk out of their store and not buy anything they look at you like, "Are you kidding me? You couldn't find anything in MY store?" 
I also feel like some stores, I will just call them,  THE LIMITED and CHARLOTTE RUSSE, look at me when I walk in and say with their eyes, "You can't fit into anything in this store, what are you doing in here?" 

That's when I say with my eyes, "You are completely correct... but I love your jewelry!" 

Also, for goodness sakes, I DO NOT want to sign up for your freaking credit card.  If I want 10% off today I will let you know! This guy yesterday at GAP actually told me it would help him out SO much if I would sign up for one.  I said, "Well, you don't know the trouble it will get me in when I get into the car!"  He did not take this as a NO. He continued with actually begging me to sign up for one! I was shocked.  Kid, your little "reward" for getting me to sign up is not worth the interest rate I'm going to be charged when I will not pay off this card monthly.  Your little "reward" is not worth me planning a funeral, because I rack up an incredible amount of money on there and keep it a secret from my husband and then he finds a bill and opens it and has a heart attack.

Also, just because you are having a "Buy one get one 1/2 off" sale, does that mean I HAVE to get another shirt!  I came in for one shirt, and one shirt only. 

It does usually mean I will leave with at least 2 shirts!!  Seriously, that sell gets me every time!

Oh, retailers!  You are such a love/hate relationship.

That's right...I'm done! Well at least for 2 months. I'm just so stinking excited. I cannot wait to see what this summer has to offer!  I just want to spend time with my little boy! Okay, I also want to sleep in and take naps and go, go, go and do things I want to do. 
I hope to also keep this up during the summer.

Tick Me Off Tuesday

Here is my list for this week:

1. Git R done on the back of truck windows.

2. Adult men (21 or older) wearing a Hollister shirt. Especially when it is tight. It just grosses me out!

3. Married women/mothers getting tattoo’s. You lived your teenage years, if you didn’t get it then, you absolutely do not need one now. You are a grown up, get over it. A vine around your ankle or a daisy on your toe will not make you feel better about yourself.

4. Tree huggers that believe a tree is more meaningful than a human life ending.

Friday, Friday So Good To Me

Fridays: How I love you so!

I'm lacking in stuff to blog about so I'm just going to blog about TV. It is unfortunately one of my very favorite things to do. 
1. Grey's Anatomy:  Probably the best 2 hours of TV I have EVER watched. I was so tense during this time, that I was actually shaking!  My jaw is killing me today due to keeping it locked the whole time I was watching.  I was a bit shocked about seeing Reid get shot in the head at 8:08. This is primetime by the way.  When they rerun a scary movie on TV they usually don't show head traumas, so I was shocked by this.  But getting passed that to seeing my beloved Alex getting shot,  I didn't feel good about the following 1hr 52min. I wasn't sure I was going to make it!

2. The Apprentice: Now I fully believe that Donald Trump might be the biggest douche I have ever met.(okay seen on TV)  But when my Bret Michaels is on a TV show ima gonna watch!  Yes, I love him. Yes, I'm fine with you making fun of me.  Needless to say, I'm so thankful he has made a fantastic recovery and that he has made it to the finale of the show. He released today that he would be at the live finale show!! I can't wait to see him on Sunday night.  I do kinda hope Holly wins though, because she is working for her Autism charity. 

3. Real HouseWives of New York:  I don't get Bravo, and its probably a good thing, because I honestly wouldn't leave the couch if I did.  I do on the other hand get this show on On Demand.  Its an incredible guilty pleasure.  You know me and my Reality TV.  These people are wacko! I feel like I'm just like Bethenny. I feel like Kelly are girls I meet in the real world and can't stand!  Anyway, this weeks was a really great episode. Kelly has officially lost her mind.

4. The Office and 30 Rock- I'm lumping these two together, because they both equally disappointed me this year. The season finale's did too. BORINGGGGGGG.

5. American Idol- THANK YOU LEE DEWYZE. Finally a performance I can get behind.  It was just fantastic and they should have crowned him the winner this week. I'm not sure I can handle another week.  This has truly been the worst season of AI. I have watched every season from the beginning and I think I finally mean it when I say, "I won't watch next season."  That is unless they get an awesome judge to take Simon's place, but I don't know who that could possible be.

6. LOST- Oh sad day.  I actually might go into mourning after the show Sunday night. I know it will never live up to all of our expectations. And I'm actually fine with that. How could it? I really do feel like I will leave pleased though. Before the second season started my husband and I with our good friends did a marathon viewing of the first season.  We were useless at work the next day, but it was all totally worth it. I'm afraid I wont be able to watch all 4 hours completely until Monday night. So please don't ruin it for me!! 

7.  CougarTown and Modern Family:  If you are not watching these shows, I suggest you go to ABC.COM and watch every single episode right this second.  Finally sitcoms that are funny again.  I actually die laughing every single week with these shows.  My friend Laura says I remind her of Cameron on Modern Family.  Let me say that he is a fat, gay man.  What in the world is she saying????  I think I'm like Jules on CougarTown.  I'm like her as a mother at least.  She is crazy and a bit neurotic and a mother to a son.  This son loves her because and in spite of her being this way. I pray Hudson loves me the same exact way. 

8. Shows I started to watch, but sure am glad I did not get to invested in:  Happy Town, Flash Forward, and Accidentally on Purpose.

Well, there you go. Sign me up for a newspaper. I could write about TV all day long!!!  Have a great weekend.

Almost Done

This has honestly been a great year.  I had a great caseload of kids and surprisingly it went by incredibly quick. I'm very excited about the summer though.  I want ideas on what I can do this summer with a toddler.
We plan to :
1. Go to the Sprinkler Park
2. Go to the park
3. Go to the Library. I'm wondering if they have a story hour in the summer. Hudson loves books!
4. We might go to Dixon Springs and to the Chocolate Factory.

What else is out there for a toddler? I want to stay busy.

1 1/2 weeks left!!!!!!!!
