Friday Night Leftovers - 5/20

First of all, if you're reading this then you've survived the Rapture and are a zombie who loves to read mommy blogs....... sure to swing by my book giveaway - which ends tonight at midnight!  I'm giving away a copy of Janet Evanovich's book, "Sizzling Sixteen" and Nancy Martin's book "Our Lady of Immaculate Deception."

Sippy Cups Are Not For Starbucks does this fun post every Friday - "Friday Night Leftovers".  I've enjoyed reading some of her posts, as well as some of the link ups.  What a great way to clear your mind!  So I've decided to start joining in. 

I'm always in need of a good brain dump -- aren't you?

  • Why, oh why, does it take me almost a whole morning and at least 4 reheats to finish one cup of coffee?  And why is it only the coffee that I make?  When I have a Starbucks, I can down that coffee faster than you can say "Grande Cinnamon Dolce Latte with 3 pumps of white mocha"
  • I'm stressed about My Marine's car which really isn't working too hot right now.  We've been vehicle sharing for about 2 weeks.  While I don't mind driving him in....I know he does.  And I'm not a big fan of getting the girls up at 5:30am to drive him to work.  Really cuts in on my "Morning Me Time".  Selfish, I know.  We took it into the shop today.  Now the prayers and candlelight vigils begin.
  • Which brings me to my attitude.  I've had a shitty attitude all week.  I've been crabby, mean, impatient.  I've been losing my temper with my girls and my husband.  In general, I just don't like myself this week.  Some say it's SAD because we've had such rainy weather this week.  Personally, I think it's a combination of PMS and a negative pregnancy test - which I took on Wednesday.  Like I mentioned on my Facebook page -- I need a major attitude adjustment -- and fast.
  • My laptop crapped out on me yesterday - adding to my week of crabbiness.  The hard drive went.  It's the one I had replaced when the Toshiba I had before died multiple deaths.  This one wasn't even a year old.  Fortunately, they were able to replace this one with no questions.  I am the new owner of a Dell.  We'll see how long this one lasts.  Today I have spent the last 5 hours trying to save my files from the old hard drive.  It has not been a pleasant task and my eye is twitching.  Right before writing this post, I spent a good chunk of my life transferring and backing up photo files.  Now, I'm working on my music files.  I figure I'll be done by the time Nani graduates high school.
  • There have been a few bright spots this week.  I was able to get Season 2 of Big Love and Season 3 of The Tudors from the library!  I also discovered they also have all seasons of Project Runway!  Sweet!  I'm all set for when My Marine leaves next month!
  • And finally - my sweet Nani received an award in school today for "Overall Excellence" during the academic year!  I'm so stinkin' proud of her!!

Go, Nani!

Sounds like a stressful week. I hope they can fix your Marine's car!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog! :-) I'm sorry you've been so crabby this week but I can TOTALLY relate to weeks like that! And the car trouble, too, ugh. We just picked up our car from the shop (I swear it's been in the shop like 15 times since we bought the damn thing!!).

I'll be back to visit soon! :-) May 22, 2011 at 11:57 AM  

I didn't know that you were ttc. Sorry about the negative test, I know how that is. I'm going on about 9 months of a really bad attitude right now :(

Yay, for Nani! Congratulations!

I am TOTALLY with you on the coffee thing. I will reheat a stupid cup over and over and over again. Yet, give me some Starbucks and that's all she wrote! Hope your weekend was wonderful :)
