It's ONLY Thursday??!!

This has been one lonnnnng week!  And I didn't even get started on it until Tuesday!!  We've really gotten busy at work and my computer has been out of commission for a week.  I finally got it back today and I had a pile of work to catch up.  I was glad to get that out of the way. I'm just a tad bit obsessive about such things.  I don't like for anything to be left undone, at work or at home.  Makes me crazy.

We had some folks from Primerica (a Citi company, grrrrr) come do a presentation for us at work today about saving for our retirement and getting out of debt and that kind of thing.  It was very informative.  I'm always looking for ways to save for the future.  I don't have any debt except for my car and I'm SO proud of myself for that!  I have simplified my life SO MUCH in the last six years and I have never been happier. Less is more, y'all.  That's the truth.  You don't have to compete with anyone, have what they have, to be happy.  Stuff will NOT make you happy.  Anywho, they came and talked to us and they brought along sub sammiches, chips, cookies and drinks for us for lunch.  I tell my co-workers all the time that I've got to find another job!  All they do is eat!!! Candy, chips, bakery stuff in the mornings, cookies (and that's just on Mondays!  Ha!).  Plus we have drug reps coming all the time with ice cream and milkshakes in the afternoons and chicken biscuits for breakfast.  I'll be big as a house if I stay there much longer. Speaking of which, it'll be SIX MONTHS August 5th.  I never expected to stay there that long but I just like it so much!!!

We got some much-needed rain this week but surprisingly, the rain at night has not made me sleep any better.  I have high hopes, a bubble bath and some homemade catnip tea on the agenda for tonight, though. The Sandman better bring his butt over here!!

After work today, I met one of the nurses I work with and a friend at O'Charley's for appetizers. O'Charley's has appetizers 1/2 off from 4:00 to 7:00 so we ate like queens for super cheap!  It started pouring rain just as soon as we got in there and stopped as soon as we were leaving. Perfect timing!  When we walked out, we saw this beee-u-tiful rainbow in the sky!  If my dang cell phone battery hadn't been dead as a doorknob, I would have snapped a picture.  It was absolutely gorgeous. Vivid colors and it was HUGE!!!

After supper, we went to the theater and saw the new Katherine Heigl/Gerard Butler movie, "The Ugly Truth".  It was hilarious!!  I laughed out loud so many times.  It is a really good telling of the way men and women look at love and how different we truly are.  And the restaurant scene easily rivaled Meg Ryan's from "When Harry Met Sally".  Very funny stuff!  I highly recommend this one.  Just don't take the kids!


  1. I would like to see it. May have to wait for DVD. Have you seen 500 days of summer? That looks cute.

  2. Yeah, it does!! I want to see that, too!!
