Ten on Tuesday

1.  Have you heard?!  A Full House spin off is coming to Netflix next year!  I am so excited!  I loved Full House.  It was one of my favorite shows growing up.

2.  Can we just take a minute to appreciate how much better looking this guy gets with age?  Mmm...


3.  It's Administrative Professionals Week!  Tomorrow is the big day!

4.  The truth is, this isn't an exaggeration:

yep

5.  I just watched all three LOTR movies and I didn't catch half of these.  I think I need to watch them again.  :)

13 Times Background Legolas Was The Most Important Part Of “The Lord Of The Rings” Movies


6.  Can someone please tell me what is so great about washi tape?  Seriously?

7.  I still haven't organized my home office.  The closet is so bad, I can't even walk into it.

8.  I looked at my original reading list, and it has been a while since I updated it.  I'm almost done with the original list!  That's exciting.

9.  Today is a Mary Kay Day!  Whoo Hoo!!

10.  It is my opinion that the Harry Potter franchise has some of these best film scores.

Weekend Recap...


This past weekend was a bit of a wash out.  I had plans to get some things done, but my biggest accomplishment was reading a lot of my book.

Friday:  After a busy week, I picked up Chinese food for dinner and spent the rest of the evening throwing Melody's ball and watching Will & Grace.  Seriously, I don't do much on Friday nights.  Then again, I'm not invited out a lot on Fridays.

Saturday:  I woke up to the sound of a gentle rain outside.  It was so peaceful.  The rain this weekend was perfect, straight down, light, and not wicked.  So relaxing.  I turned on some music and spent the morning and most of the afternoon reading.  I basically read until it was time to go out to dinner with a friend.  The food was amazing, by the way. 

Sunday:  Sunday was another rainy day.  I had planned to get some plants for my patio, but that didn't happen.  I didn't even put actual clothes (meaning:  gym wear) until about 3 pm.  It was another day of gentle rain and I spent the morning and the early afternoon reading some more.  I read until I couldn't read anymore, and then came to a decision:  either clean/organize my home office, or watch an epic movie.  The epic movie won out.  I ended up watching two of the Lord of the Rings series before it was time to get ready for bed.  I've been wanting to watch the series recently, but haven't had a good opportunity to devote the time to it. 

All in all, it was a terrific weekend!  What did you do?

Ten on Tuesday


1.  This is pretty true.  Are there any other Leo women who might agree?

2.  Do you know what is a really good feeling?  Having a clean house.  I hadn't really cleaned in a couple months.  This became very apparent over the weekend.  Last night, I spent almost 2 hours really cleaning; including dusting, bathtubs, etc.  It looks so great now!  It really is a good feeling;  like a weight has been lifted.

3.  With the clean house, there is still the problem of my office organization.  :(

4.  Do you know another really good feeling?  Paying all your bills before they are due.

5.  Even if doing so leaves you with no extra money to spend.  At least the bills are paid.  :)

6.  I'm not sure what's happening lately, but I've been easily confused.  I am having a hard time keeping things straight.  Anyone else have this problem?

7.  So, I'm kind of interested in doing a "Flat Stanley" thing, for no other reason than to have fun and take photos of a paper doll.  Would anyone be interested in participating?

8.  Want to know how many questions I've asked on this blog that don't get answered?  I've lost count...  :)

9.  Les Miserables is seriously kicking my ass!  It's quite the undertaking for me, but I'm enjoying it.  I'm almost halfway through, and its all downhill from there, right?

10.  This post finally went live on Wednesday.  So what?  :)

Weekend Recap...





Thank goodness I write these weekend recaps because sometimes, I don't know how I would remember everything.


Friday:  It's no surprise that Friday evenings are when I completely chill from the long, busy week.  After a hell-acious day, I planned on getting some vodka on my way home and fixing myself a still drink.  While driving home, I decided to save my money instead and ended up enjoying some junk food and Dr. Pepper.  I'm not sure it entirely did the trick, but I saved money, so...bonus.  I guess.  I also watched multiple movies.  Cheesy 80s ones.  Gotta love those awesome special effects!

Saturday:  When I went to bed, I decided to use my eye mask because I didn't have any appointments in the morning.  When I woke up, I thought it was around 10:30.  Nope...It was 12:30 pm!  I had slept over 12 hours!  I must have really needed that extra sleep because I haven't been sleeping well lately.  Since I didn't have anything planned until the evening, I got to enjoy coffee on the patio with my book.  I managed to read over 100 pages this weekend, but I still have a long way to go.  At Bingo that night, I won a game!  My favorite thing about bingo is getting to call out.  I really enjoy that.  I won the game all by myself, so I didn't have to share it.  With that win, I broke even, so I was happy.  Some of those seniors get crazy though.  Beware losing bingo players.  :)

Sunday:  I had a skin care class in the afternoon and I got a new customer and had really good sales!  It was a very good Mary Kay day.  I would love to have a day like that at least twice a week. Now, to just find those people.  I also got to spend time with my parents before coming home for the night.  After putting my laundry away, I came to the realization that I haven't cleaned my house in a few months.  I also still haven't finished my filing cabinet organization project.  Needless to say, I have a lot of work to do.

How was your weekend?  Did you get to do anything fun?

Ten on Tuesday



1.  I have been a very bad blogger.  :(

2.  There is a big event on Thursday that I have to present at.  This is a fancy one too.  EEK!

3.  Did you have a good Easter?  I know my weekend was so great!

4.  It is very rainy today.  This shirt would be perfect:

yes please

5.  In my vanity is a collection of headbands.  I used to wear them all the time.  However, I've noticed lately that I don't wear many of them anymore.  I think there are probably 2 that I wear.  It may be time to clean them out and get rid of those I don't wear.  Does anyone else have this problem with hair accessories?

6.  Administrative Professionals Week is coming up.  Administrative Professionals Day is April 22.  If you have an admin that supports you at work, please show your appreciation.  A card and coffee can go a long way.   Just sayin'....

7.  OMG!  How true are these?  I can remember my experience with each and every one of them. 

8.  It's official.  I haven't had the ability to commit more than a hour to reading at a time and I have officially gone behind schedule on my reading challenge.

9.  Celebrating two birthdays this month and I don't have anything planned yet!  The first one is next week.  Good thing I have ideas.

10.  My refrigerator is looking pretty bleak, along with my pantry.  Must go grocery shopping....soon.
