Week One 2010

Well good thing I did not make this my New Year's Resolution...

Week one wasn't so bad. Hubby decided for his New Year's resolution that we should do more things together, try to find more interests together and plan a weekend away each month. Hmmm... after 27+ years of togetherness I don't know what to think about that one...

So... we went to see The Blind Side on New Year's Day. Awesome movie, loved it, can't wait to own the DVD! I so want to be that woman! She is a DIVA like no other!

On Saturday we went to Academy (sporting good store) because Hubby's company gave him a rather large gift certificate, like as in $500! We couldn't spend $500 in that store if we tried. We bought stuff for all the boys, the girlfriend too, as well as ourselves and still ended up with $90 to spare - arghh... Hubby went back yesterday to buy a coat, Carhart coveralls and thermals, since we are in the middle of an arctic blast, and we still have $20 left - gah! The gift that keeps on giving...

Sunday we went antique shopping, which was actually Hubby's idea. I could antique shop all day long and never get tired of it, he was bored in about 30 minutes. We then headed to the Gun Show. Have you EVER been to a gun show? I know I'm from Texas but I don't do guns, I don't do hunting and quite honestly I have never touched a real gun in my life. OMG! You would NOT believe the kind of people they let into these places AND they let them buy guns! WHY does anyone need an UZI machine gun? I mean seriously? I have never been so scared in my life, and held onto Hubby like there was no tomorrow. Needless to say, I prefer antique shopping.

Played hookie on Wednesday with intentions of pampering myself. Guess what I did? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Well I did take a 2 1/2 hour nap, that was good.

As I mentioned we are in the middle of an arctic blast, and NO I don't want to hear about all of you that live in sub-zero areas or have 26 feet of snow until April, it's fricking colder than a witches tit here and I don't like it! This morning it was 17 degrees with a wind chill of 2. THAT'S TWO PEOPLE! They said it hasn't been this cold here since 1983! It's supposed to be colder tomorrow. I wish I could hibernate.

Don't know what we have planned for this weekend, maybe, if I'm lucky, Hubby will have forgotten about his resolution and I can go get my nails done and a pedicure...

OMG on the gunshows, and yes I am married to a hunter, though I don't.

It isn't cold here, 41 and rainy, want to come for a visit?

I LOVE antique shopping...but Gary gets super bored super quick, too. Ah, well. We do are having the 17 degree winter blast--and I feel your pain because we don't usually get that here in SC, either! It's awful! My speedometer froze!

Well at least he's making an effort to spend some time with you - it's more than some husbands would do. And I don't even WANT to hear you whine about 17 & 2 wind chill! That witch's tit ain't even nipp'n yet!!

OR you could take your hub with you and he could get a manicure and pedicure! That sounds like a lot more fun than a gunshow.

You've got the wrong attitude about the gun shows!!! They are the best place on EARTH for people watching!!! You didn't go in there looking for the entertainment value.... ;)

That whole artic blast had us freezing our asses off, that is for sure. It's pretty sad when we hit 20+ degrees up here (Nebraska) and we were rejoicing!!
