February Currently + Super Bowl

How it is February 2nd?? My gracious. Time is flying away from me. Must be all those snow days :p But a new month means a new currently!

{Head on over and link up with Farley!)

Listening: It *was* nice and peacefully quiet until the dog started snoring. Between my two dogs (who sleep in our room) and The Husband, I have no idea how I get any sleep when they all start sawing logs. :)

Loving: I am totally in love with my new kitty! The Husband hates cats for the most part but Middle Child's therapist recommended we get her a pet that wouldn't die in a short time (her hamsters and other critters haven't lasted long and BOTH fish she got for Christmas died already). So really she's for the girls...but I'm paying the vet bill so she's mostly mine lol 
She looks ferocious, huh? lol

Thinking: I really should get off my behind and go to the gym. I have been bad this week and haven't gone since last Sunday! :( But I'm feeling lazy and just don't want to get dressed. I'm gonna have to make myself a schedule -- I always feel better when I cross stuff off my schedule. 

Wanting: This is selfish but...I have been bummed the past few weeks that both times I was supposed to have a day all to myself, my kids ended up not having school either. :( I love my kids, don't get me wrong, but sometimes a momma just really needs a full day to herself. It doesn't really happen for me, hardly ever, and I was looking forward to it.

Needing: My house isn't a disaster....but my girls tend to leave stuff laying around and its becoming too cluttered for my taste. Alas, I'm not going to clean up after them so the house will stay this way until they come home from my father-in-law's!

2 Truths and a Fib: 1. I really did win 4 tickets to a movie once. It was to see The Chipmunk Adventure. I was 9. 2. Fib. I am not the oldest of 4 kids. I am the youngest of 2 kids. 3. I won a writing contest at school in the 3rd grade. They even had an awards night and I got to be there. My parents are so lame they sent their friend to take me. 

Today is Super Bowl Sunday....not like I care. I am not a sports fan. However, I will be watching a) for the commercials and b) because I decided to do a Super Bowl Squares content. I sold squares for $3 each and during the game will draw numbers and they will win $50 toward Thirty-One. It will be super awesome.

  1. You are funny!! I love cats. I have one cat and from my experience, they tend to like one person more than all the others in the household.

    Hope you can finally get some time for yourself!

    1. I love cats too. They are my super older cat is 10 and hates everyone lol She lives outside (except when its SUPER cold then we have let her in). She likes being outside and is pretty anti-social. It's been nice to have the new kitty here because she is super cuddly and likes people.

  3. I laughed when you wrote about the snoring. Hubby and my doggie both snore, so I had to buy those pink squishy ear plugs! They have helped tremendously!!! I have actually sat on my behind the past 2 weeks once I get home for the night. I did not work out and I did not get out of my pajamas. In fact, I am not getting out of my pj's today! What's the point, I don't feel like going out into the craziness of people shopping for party stuff. Anyway, I loved reading your post and I am your newest follower. Come visit me and we can be blogging buddies!

  4. I love your kitty! So precious!

    And I can definitely commiserate with your wish for a house to yourself. With the exception of about 25 minutes one day over Christmas Break when my hubs went out to buy kitty litter, I've not had the house to myself since Columbus Day! And, most of that day was filled with errands. Every time an event is planned that will grant me that desired time the plans fall through (I'm looking at you, epic snow accumulation!). Even two hours would be lovely!

    Hope we both get our alone time soon!

  5. I need a full day to myself too! That would be great!
