Garage Sale Mania!

So last night I decided I had way too much stuff and I wanted to get rid of alot of it. Not that I live in squaller or am a hoarder or anything. My house is fairly neat, except for the few toys my kids have on the floor or the 1 too many knick knacks on my shelves. I just have been feeling claustrophobic lately and tired of getting done going through cleaning everything only to find that once i'm done, it's time to start at the other end and make my way through again. DUSTING ESPECIALLY EEWWW!
So last night as I lay in bed I was so excited about thinking of getting rid of everything, I started mentally planning out my process and going through what I can part with. I was getting so excited that I almost got up to actually start cleaning my garage last night around midnight. Then I thought, well i will be too tired tomorrow morning to finish so i'll stay in bed. 2 hours later I was still mentally preparing myself. I have never been so excited to purge before. I'm wondering if it is a sign that this is exactly what I need right now. Like if I can clear my space, perhaps I will be able to clear my mind. IDK.

And surprisingly enough I am still excited this morning about the whole thing. Even though it is sprinkley outside and my major plan was to pull everything out of the garage, I think I still can get it done. I was going to separate everything into 3 piles. Keep, Sell/donate, and toss. Then put everything I'm keeping back in neatly and organized. Then my garage sale pile will be in boxes in the corner. A couple neighbors have already shown interest in doing a yard sale this summer too, and my mom. So it'll be on June 3rd and 4th. Let's just hope I keep up this enthusiasm long enough to actually get everything done.

What happened to my thought?

So last night I went to bed and as I was dozing off I thought of something. Then I said "oh I will post that question tomorrow because I am interested in how different people feel about that"
And then I mulled over for a while whether or not I should get up and go type it up or even write it down. I then thought oh, its such a good question that I wont forget it.
Ahahahahaha, guess what I could not remember this morning?! Yeah, I was racking my brain all day, even "reenacting" last nights routine to see if anything would jog my memory. No such luck though. Oh well, I guess that means it wasn't meant to be. If I remember tonight, I will grab my phone and send a reminder to myself.

I think the reason it bothered me so much that I forgot is not so much that it reminds me that I am getting older and have possibly reached my mental prime, but perhaps because I am egotistical. What does that have to do with anything, you ask. Well I will tell you, however I tend to ramble so pay attention.
I tend to think that when I post some random ramble on facebook, I have this little voice in my head that tell me everyone is going to read it and love it. So when I have an idea or question in my head that I actually am interested in other peoples opinion on, (insert maniacal giggle here) Then I again think I will get many readers of it, and therefore plenty of feedback on it. See, ego. I won't even get started on what goes on in my mind when I don't get any feedback or responses. Hahaha

Ok, well I am off to bed for the night. Hopefully I wake up with some pearls to share tomorrow. I actually go to work tomorrow so I know I will have a lot to say after that, it'll just be a matter of whether or not I feel like typing it all up. Because I will have to type up some background info for you to be able to understand better any ranting I would do. And trust me, it would be ranting. Rarely after working there do I have anything good to say.

Good night ya'll

Oh this girl is irritating

OOOOOHHH what a shocker, Jen is in love AGAIN!
What does this make now, like the 10th time in the past year.
I have nothing nice to say about this lady. She is a mediocre actress at best.
She "falls in love" with anyone who will give her the time of day, and she is so marriage and baby crazy that she smothers them so much that they drop her like a bad habit. It's really quite embarrasing frankly.

Please, if you have something good to say about her, let me hear it. Maybe I just need someone else's eyes on the situation, but so far, the only good thing she did was Friends, and I think that was just good writers.

All I need now is an apron and I can get dinner made for my man and on the table by 5. It is woman's work ya know!

Celebrity Bummer!

So this is more for those of us who have that splinter of hope of meeting and bagging ourself a celebrity hottie. I know the chances of us regular folk who dont live the glamorous life, or work in the biz, are so very slim. But we still look through the rag mags gawking at the oiled up abs of the latest hunky star, or oogling the just this side of legal beauty hoping for a "wardrobe malfunction". And even though they may be dating someone else equally as beautiful, we think to oursleves "It's just a phase, they'll get over it".

Then we come along a story that makes our hearts sink just a little. A story perhaps like this one

Thor, the God of Thunder, married Elsa Pataky, the newest hottie from the Fast Five movie.

Part of me wants to wish them a long and happy relationship. And then there is the catty mean, and yes married, side of me that hopes they divorce, he comes to America to get over it, hides away in a little ol' city in the west called Vancouver, WA and somehow stumbles into my bed.  OOOPS did i just say that!
P.S. My husband and I do have a standing agreement that if we ever had a chance with a big name celebrity that we have the go ahead, so don't think bad of me just yet....Wait a month til you know me better, then hate me ;)

Flower Power!

So i had these left over from a project at my daughter's school, and i didnt want to see them go to waste.
 So I folded some, curled some, and attached them together to create these 3D flowers.
I'll most likely hang these in my daughters room, or give them to her to give her friends at school. It seems like whenever I make her something just because im bored and using scraps, she takes it to school and comes home with requests from her friends for me to make them some too. At least I know I always have somewhere for my little creations to go.

I try to stay positive!

Sometimes I just like to randomly rant about things that irritate me. It helps me keep from becoming the next person pickin off people from atop the bell tower ;)~

I know that some people may think i'm negative because I feel it is better to speak my mind and let out my thoughts and irritations, but trust me, It is WAY better that I get my chance to vent once in a while. Otherwise when I hold things in for too long, it creates this festering pool of mean spirited hate that tends to explode at the wrong time, or on the wrong person for something as small as my food touching eachother on my plate.

Although that does sometimes irritate me as well, It is definately no reason to blow up and freak out on my husband or kids for something they may have done a month ago. I'm sure I'm not telling you anything you don't already know, but for me, this is an outlet that I may or may not get feedback on. Either way, it's out of my head and It makes me feel better almost instantly.
