Holidays --- Uggghh

I'm currently on day 3 of a 4 1/2 day vacation and honestly... I'm sick of it.

I'm bored out of my mind.

I will be honest, I'm struggling a lot lately. This time last year was everything I have always dreamed I wanted it to be, and I'm missing that right now....

Today I only have two projects left and those will probably be done within an hour or two. What the hell am I going to do all day?

Sometimes I wish I was able just to lounge on the couch and enjoy myself... why I do always have to be so busy? It has done a lot for me in this life, but in such a boring time of year it seems like a curse...

Gotta do whatcha gotta do

Straight from my counseling appointment to the liquor store.

Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.

Besides, ORANGE JUICE (with some kick) still counts as vitamin C, right?

I'm soooo sick of this sinus cold.

Apparently the blizzard of all blizzards will be hitting Utah this afternoon.

Unfortunately I have to work tonight, so that means a 100 mile round trip during the storm. :(

I'm mentally putting together a list of things I need to add to my car for my "winter survival kit."

I'm a Colorado Girl by nature, so I do ok in this stuff... but just in case, I need to be prepared.

By the way, have I mentioned my new car SUCKS in the rain and snow?!?! Yeah... I think I might be getting NEW new car here soon...

Anyways, I'm going to have to throw all that together this afternoon and toss it in the trunk I need to be prepared.

Oh, and also fill up the gas tank! That's one of the best ways to be prepared!

MIA no longer

Alright, it's time I start functioning with the outside world again...

And to begin with, I have a few ideas to bounce off of you.

1st idea:
I read an article about a girl that decided in 2009 that she would participate in a charitable active event every month of the year and her experiance was AWESOME! So, AIDS 5k in January, Polar Bear Plunge for the Homeless in February, Africa run in March, etc, etc...

I'm thinking of trying to take on the same thing, but I'm going to shoot for 6 events in 2011. This girl traveled all over the world; I'm willing to travel, but let's be honest... I don't have an unlimited budget here.

I do think it would be a great experiance, it would get me moving, it would be fulfilling and I could get my friends and family involved.....

HINT HINT --- You guys in it with me? I figure if I do 6 activities next year that gives a few of my friends and family an opportunity to pick one to do with me and then we can have a great experiance TOGETHER.

What do you guys think? Over achiever? Too much? Sound great? Let's scale back? What are we thinking here?????

I'm thinking of starting a running total of all the money I save from coupons/discounts for 2011.... more for a gee whiz sake. Maybe? or does that make me coupon obsessed?? (as if I'm not already)... I'm just thinking it might be fun to see the amount go up and up and up.... I'm thinking $$$$$$$$$$$$.

So, input?

Love you all, sorry it's been so long.

Gettin' it done!!

Lots going on today... I'm up early and ready to make things happen.

First on the to-do list.... FILE FOR COURT. I need to get some of my money back and I'm not going to get a dime of it without some help... so, court it is.

I have some pumpkin to cook and get in the freezer...

A return to make at the store, need heavier weights. :)

Some stuff put away around the house...

Wish me luck! :)
