Monday Mingle!

I have become the worst at remembering about this.  I happened to be in front of my computer when I remembered today though, so yay!  Go on over to see Jennifer @ Eighty MPH Mom and say hello to her and the other Minglers!  My password is: misadventure.  Enjoy!

Variation of MadLibs

I got this meme from @subWOW on Twitter, her blog can be found here.  And the original link to the text is found here.  It looked really neat, so...without further ado, here is where I'm from.

I am from a ship, from Legos and morning sun.
I am from the South, warm, inviting, and full of sweet tea.
I am from the honeysuckle, the sweet fragrant blossoms.
I am from Scattagories on Christmas Eve and stubbornness, from Mom and Dad and my two siblings.
I am from the leaving ridiculously early and somehow still being behind.
From always say please and thank you, and you are perfect the way you are.
I am from what goes around comes around. Of kindness and acceptance and no judgement.
I'm from Poland, and peirogies and BBQ.
From the traveling cousin who called from Hawaii to surprise us, the random visits, and the many postcards.
I am from photo albums and storage sheds, boxes of things forgotten, but when looked at spark so many memories.  I am from making memories and keeping them safe with me always.

More stuff to come

I have a few good posts in the wings, but I haven't really had time to sit down and get anything to paper. Or screen, as it were. But I do have stories coming. Promise. And as soon as I get a good night sleep and an hour to myself I will let you in on what I've been up to.

Have a good weekend everybody.

Things I'm Looking Forward To

Now that I have a job, these are some of the things I'm looking forward to:

*The occasional cup of morning coffee from the roaster down the street.
*NOT having to work on a ever-changing schedule, holidays, or weekends.  F YES.
*Going to have dinner and a beer with friends.
*Sushi.  OMG.
*Joining a gym/fitness club/workout class/something to make me less fat.
*Getting back into crafting.  Which is a surprisingly expensive hobby.
*Getting a desk that I so badly need.
*Having my own desk/cube that is MINE and I can do with what I please. (It's stupid, but cubicles hold a special little place in my heart.)
*Not wondering where the money for my next bill is coming from.
*Another tattoo perhaps.
*Can we insurance?  F YES.
*A professional cut and dye job for my hairs.  Maybe even a mani/pedi, I've never had one of those.
*New contacts.  The ones I have right now are such little troopers....they're about 4 months old.
*New Chucks!  Yeah!  I'm thinking a neon color of high tops.
*Affording to travel occasionally.

There are a lot of other things I'm looking forward to about having a job, but this is just a quick list from the top of my head.  I got the official word today, I start next Wednesday.  I'm currently out of town and I'll get back a couple days before I have to start. don't know how excited I am.  SO so excited.  Finally, something to do with myself during the week.  Finally, I don't have to worry about bills.


Happy Birthday to me!
