Friend Makin' Monday...on Tuesday! The Basics

I'll be posting again probably tomorrow when I've actually gone to a WW meeting and gotten on a scale!  I've been going to Zumba twice a week and oddly enough, I've learned the deeper the squats I do, the more I feel it in my thighs instead of just in my knees.  I have to say, I'm glad I attend classes at my daughter's second home (aka the dance studio) because the ballet barres come in handy for lunges.  There are a lot of us dance moms who go to these classes, because we all have a trip to SC coming up in 2 months and we want to be the "Hot Dance Mamas"!  
At the beach:
So I missed the meeting tonight & I was ticked.  I didn't go last week, so I was looking forward to going tonight.  However, Miss Angela made arrangements with a guy she works with who is attending the Paul Mitchell Cosmetology school, to color and trim her hair.  And Heaven forbid this kid go do anything alone!  She's gone to this school to have work done before but yet she insisted on me going with her.  I was going to meet up with her after my meeting!  So.  I said I'd go to the meeting Wednesday, even tho I don't like the later time & usually don't like the leader, but I'd deal.  So I changed into jeans and grabbed a snack before we left for the salon.  Then this guy texted her and said he had a class and asked if the could postpone until tomorrow!  WTF - I just finished chewing my last freakin' bite of food!!!!  If he'd texted 5 minutes sooner, I could have changed back out of my jeans and gone to the meeting.  Look Sunshine.  I'm not missing my meeting again and it's also Zumba night.  You can go alone, dammit. At least the dog got a walk out of the debacle.

Moving on.... the lovely Miss Kenlie brought back Friend Makin' Mondays!  It's been a few minutes since we did one of these.

Friend Makin’ Mondays: The Basics
How often do you make your bed?  Personally, I usually only do on weekends. During the week, the hubby is just starting to stir, so he makes it when he gets up. 

What are you currently reading?  I haven't been reading much by way of books, but the A-Z Challenge is keeping me busy.  (I'm at Tales From The Love Shaque and I'm writing about the plethora of Halloween stuff that I have.)

Do you go to bed at a certain time? I have the alarm set on my phone for 10:15 to get ready for bed with the intent to be IN bed by 11.  That clearly isn't happening tonight, but I'm ok with that. 

What are your favorite TV shows currently? I don't watch much TV, but I'm watching Season 8 of RuPaul's DragRace.  It airs on Monday nights, but I watch it online Tuesday so I can watch the behind-the-scenes shows they have, too. 

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve eaten lately? Hmm.  The girl works for a Thai restaurant so I've been sampling their food.  It's not really weird, tho.  They offer a mean Thai margarita there, too!  Let's say I did NOT drive home the last time I was there!

Do you have any trips planned? Charleston SC in June!  The girl's dance team is going to Nationals so 10 days or so near the beach.  I don't know how much we'll actually get to go to the beach, because she qualified in enough dances where she's likely to be competing every day, Tuesday - possibly Sunday.  Oh, and July 8 is mine & hubby's 10 year anniversary.  There may be a short trip planned then, but I don't know what ideas are churning inside his melon!  I was told to take Friday & Monday off work. 

How many cups of coffee do you drink per day? I don't drink much coffee.  I have a can of Coke Zero once I get to work and maybe one more in the evening. The rest of the time is water with Crystal lite. 

It’s Saturday night, and you decided to stay in? What do you do to entertain yourself? I do some blogging or reading or maybe half-heartedly watch whatever the hubby has on. I need to finish a cross-stitch piece I've been working on for a good 2 years!  I also have a H'ween project I've started and need to paint.  I found a plastic horse at the Salvation Army and I'm planning to make it into a ghost-horse.  Meaning solid black with an ivory skeleton. 

When you give a gift do you wrap it, or do you put it in a gift bag? Depends.  I like to wrap boxes, but if its a bunch of smaller items or weirdly shaped, I'll bag it. 

Share one thing from last week that made you smile?   These two always make me smile!  Chester (my orange boy) is at least 16 years old and Daisy will a 1 next month.  He is such a good big brother and they snuggle all the time.  
One of the guys at work cracked me up yesterday.  I'd just gotten there and was putting my lunch in the fridge, etc.  Joe walked into the the kitchen with this mean look on his face.  I looked up to say Good Morning, but stopped.  He asked "is it always like this?"  Of course I was confused.  He went on the say "hot, then cold, then hot, then cold"  Then I understood & started to laugh - Friday was 60+ degrees and sunny, then Saturday started out nice, then developed winter weather advisories for Saturday night / Sunday!! He's clearly not from Michigan, but I heard someone say they thought Joe was from Buffalo, NY, which I think would be worse!
