Friend Makin' Monday - Finish the Sentence

Where did the weekend go? 

Let me see - Friday night the hubby was setting up / installing radio stuff in preparation for the Mid-Michigan MS 150 bike ride (that he worked at all weekend), so the girl and I stayed home and didn't do a whole lot.  We made french bread pizzas for dinner and caught up on watching RuPaul's Drag U (I love RuPaul's shows!!!)  Saturday we did piddly stuff here & there and went to my sister's to get dressed before car-pooling to my cousin's wedding.
Apparently the Lisa's are the bad guys -
that's me in front and my niece Lisa standing, wearing black hats.

Note to anyone planning a wedding....even if you know the guy who DJs - make sure he has good equipment and overall is a decent DJ - and NO KARAOKE !!!!  I could see the bride & groom singing a song to each other, since they enjoy doing karaoke, but that's about it. There was a lot of technical issues, long pauses between songs, restarting songs multiple times, couldn't hear anyone who talked on the mic, stopping the Dollar Dance to let a kid (who couldn't read fast enough to follow the lyric screen) sing while the bridal party stood around on the dance floor and talked.  We left around 11:30 and she still hadn't done the bouquet toss.  At least we did get to do some dancing.  I honestly hope Janet & Steve were happy (since they're all that mattered), but I personally would have been pissed.

Anyway... we went back to Laurie's house and finally went to bed around 1:30. We were on air mattresses in the basement, so my Beagle woke me up around 7 am (a slimy wet dog nose sniffing in the ear is NOT a gentle way to wake up and once I giggled, there was no snooze button!!) I took him outside and her horses saw me from the barn and announced loudly that they were ready for breakfast.  So I had to take care of them.  Then it was pointless to go back to bed after that so I sat out on the deck and enjoyed the still-cool breeze until everyone else got up.

We hung out at Laurie's til mid-afternoon, helping with farm stuff (cleaning stall, hauling hay bales, etc) then went home to shower!

She hasn't asked for help with her air conditioner so she's been sleeping in the basement in this crazy heat we've been having!  So I told her I was coming back tonight to help carry it out of storage and install it.  At least she didn't argue!

So .... it's time for FMM!!!

Finish the Sentence

I likebeing creative and using my imagination.

I don’t likelousy drivers.

I ama wife & mom (and proud of it!)

I lovemy family and critters.

I dream ofsomeday moving to Arkansas and living in a big old house with lots of room both inside & out.

I wonderwhat my purpose in life is.

I knowsomething you don't !  (but not a good answer for this one!)

I wentto Tim Horton's for breakfast and coffee this morning

I haveplans for Halloween already

I thinkthere is got to be a plan for me (see "I wonder")

I planto get healthier.

I regretnot staying in the Navy.  But then I probably wouldn't have met Randy, so I guess that's OK!

I dowant to get motivated.

I drinka lot of water and can tell when I don't have enough.

I wishRandy would make an attempt to lose weight with me and also to work toward finding a different job (I appreciate that he has a good paying one, but the high-ups are assholes and treat their people like crap)

I ammuch healthier than when I started WW, but I have also become complacent. 

I am notat my goal weight yet, but I’ve lost over 50 pounds. I need to find the drive and excitement that I had when I first started WW. 

I needto get my butt moving in many aspects of my life.

I hopethat Miss Angela will finally get on the ball with school and show us that she can be the A/B student that all her teachers are sure she can be.  She's going to be a sophomore this year and college is lurking on the horizon!

I wantto make a difference, but I don't know to what or who.

I sometimes…wish I could just work part time so I had the energy to be a better homemaker (I am a morning person and by the time I get home from work in the afternoons, I don't feel like doing anything.  Which means the house is messy and I feel bad when Randy comes home to that.) 

I alwaystry to put my hubby & child first.  side note - My sisters were mad that I chose to spend my anniversary alone with my spouse instead of going to see Magic Mike with them.  WTF, peoples?  I would have gone on any other day but not that one.

I canusually see the good side of most situations.  I always keep an open mind and consider new experiences as being an adventure!  I did that a lot while in the Navy.

I cannotwait for vacation this winter!  Buckstaff BathHouse in Hot Springs, here I come!

I willbe the best that I can be!
