Is It Spring Yet?

It’s been awhile since my l ast post, but here is the update.  I’m still living at the gym and have dropped a total of 10 lbs. and a pant size so far.  Of course, I’m hoping to do more, but I guess there’s something called patience that I have to have as well.  Bah.
Otherwise, things have been quiet here.  Kidlet is doing amazingly and surprising us everyday with something new.  Today she sang an OAR song on the way to Day Care.  Who knew? 
Work has still been slow, but I keep focussing on the idea that I still have a job and I’m grateful for that.  Spring is just around the corner (hopefully) and that will mean better times.
I have a hauge case of Spring Fever.  I’m already talking to Hubby about scheduling things for Sept. (as we don’t get to have much of a life during summer with Camp.)  The vegetable garden is all planned out and the shopping list of supplies is made.  Sad, I know.
Oh, and I also think it’s terribly wrong that U2 drops a new album and no tour????????  REALLY??  THAT’S NOT RIGHT I TELL YOU…..Not right at all!!!!!!!
We got our Federal Tax money today, so I’ve been sorting through bills looking for things to pay off.  Wow, that’s odd…looking for bills to pay.  Hmmm….I think I need help. 
I’m sorry things aren’t more eventful at the moment, but winter’s tend to be that way around here.  I’m still up at 5:00 or 6:00a.m. headed to the gym most everyday.  Pain and yelling are now my 2 best friends….Yikes.


Musical Revolution

If you know me, you know I practically worship music…most every kind, although I’m not a huge fan of Country.  XM’s Flight 26 perfectly fits my musical tastes. 
Anyway, with my passion for music came an iPod collection of roughly 500 songs…carefully chosen and crafted over 2 years.  In a bold mood & move, I ditched my entire collection and started over.  Even more surprisingly no hyperventilating or reaches for the Suicide Hotline took place. 🙂  (I’m proud of myself.)
I’ve been having fun re-doing my collection.  GnR made their way back to the list right away, and I’m LOVING the stuff by Sara Bareilles!!

Sara Bareilles Album \

As always Ben Folds Five Song “Kate” made it back, well, cause I love that song.  And the new stuff by Alanis Morissette is there, although I haven’t listened to that yet.  And Coldplay’s new song “Viva la Vida” was a must….along with U2, cause I’m a huge fan of theirs.   I guess I’m going for the new and funky with old stand-by’s.  
On new iPod List:
Alanis Morissette
Alicia Keys
Amy Winehouse
The Beatles
The Juno Soundtrack

As always I love how music can take you back to a time/place or make you remember a person.  There’s not many things that can accomplish that so easily.
If anyone has any suggestions about other stuff I should add, let’er rip! 
Also, I was hoping to make it to the Dave Matthews Band Concert in Milwaukee Aug. 9th.  I don’t know if that will happen as I don’t want to go/drive alone.  Hubby has to work, but I was hoping for a blow-out summer trip for me.  I guess we’ll have to see.
On the table is also a possible trip to Lac Du Flambeau June 28th to see Carlos Mencia (From Comedy Central).  We’re still deciding on that….I’ll let you know.
In the meantime, drunken fun is to be had tonight.  I apologize in advance.  Enough said. 🙂
