Doin’ the Damn Thang

Three months and still working my part-time job!!  I must say I’m pretty proud of myself and I honestly can’t believe I haven’t been fired for being a no call, no show.  It helps that I like most of the people I work with and there’s no stress.  The most inconvenient part is having to put on makeup and do my hair 5 days/week and wear the uniform…oh and the fanny pack.  Yes, a fanny pack.  Don’t be jealous.

Otherwise, things have been pretty much the same.  George is working nights and doing a bit of work as an extra on the new tv show Librarians.  I honestly don’t know the last time we had an entire day off together so that’s a little bit perfect sad.  Fortunately, we have a short trip planned at the end of the month and a long vacation planned in September.  I can hardly wait.

In the meantime, I’ve started a sewing project:


I’ve cut out all the pieces and pinned two pieces together.  The one issue?  I need a sewing machine.  Or a better one.  I’ll keep you posted on that.

I’m drinking a f*ckton of coffee.


I didn’t start drinking coffee until a couple of years ago and now I can’t live without it.

My new favorite snack:


Carrots, hummus and tomatoes with salt and pepper.  Or an entire cake.  Thankfully, I rarely have cake around.

Oh and I’ve made this recipe for Mexican Stuffed Peppers with Quinoa and Black Beans a couple of times in the last few weeks.


Once with green peppers and once with red peppers.  I liked the red peppers better, but they were both good.  And really easy to make.

Oh and have I mentioned that we’re renting out our 3rd bedroom?  So we’re getting ready for that.  I thought it would be a good way to make some extra money and we’re barely home.  We knew someone looking for a place and it just seemed to work out.  Here’s to hoping we don’t kill each other!!

And since I have a couple of free hours each week, this is finally happening:


Yep, I’m taking Spanish lessons!!  I had my very first lesson today and I really enjoyed it.  I’m taking private lessons so it’s a lot different than when I took French in high school and college.  And I’m forcing a few of my part-time job coworkers to tutor me when we’re at work (no, they don’t have a choice).  Right now, though, they’ve only taught me very inappropriate curse words.  I did not share my knowledge of curse words with my Spanish teacher.  I know, I’m surprised too.

    You are funny and should have a reality show. I’d rather watch you than the Kardashians.

  2. I use that book in my Spanish classroom! It’s better than the the textbook for grammar. Suerte….I have other stuff on my website at; just click on my “Spanish Classes…” I like to upload goofy YouTube videos there, too. Let me know if you need any help. Your mom knows me.
