It's been a month of Mondays...

Ever hear the expression, "Month of Sundays?

I declare that December 2013 has been a month of Mondays.

Think about it.
December 2nd, 9th, 16th and 23rd and 30th  were the official Mondays.
But Christmas was on a Wednesday, New Years Day is on a Wednesday.
The weeks with the holidays really have 2 Mondays in them.

I worked on the 23rd(monday) took 25th off(felt like a Saturday) then back to work on 26th-which felt like a Monday. Same this week. I worked on the 30th,(monday) will take January 1st off(will feel like a Saturday) and then back to work on the 2nd--which will feel like a Monday.

Lord, my head is spinning..

By the way, when I googled "head spinning" many of the images were from the movie "The Exorcist" one of the creepiest movies ever.

A little  known fact about me, I've never seen that movie, (thank you Mom and Dad for not allowing me to watch it as a teenager-when everyone else was watching it and I SO wanted to watch that creepy movie) don't ever plan to see that movie and it really still creeps me out--you would never have guessed that right?

So, happy end of the month of Mondays peeps and keep your chin up for 2014.

I've already begun a new year's resolution.  One of my very smart friends told me when I allow myself to be angry with someone-it allows that person " free rental" space in my head.
--I ain't a a landlord and if I was
I  sho' would be charging you rent.
High dollar
Penthouse pricing
Waterfront property pricing

So get on out of head....

What's you new year's resolve? Chime in.

Let it Snow

Oh boy!
Oh Boy!
It's the first snow here in Nashville TN and oh boy I feel like a little kid getting out of school early due to the snow.
This is not NY snow
or NJ snow
this is TN snow.
 So, 1/4" to 1/2" is all it takes to call school off!
 Of course, I don't go to school, work at school or have kids in school so it really doesn't matter.
Why do I check for my counties on the Snowbird map?

Does anyone have an answer to that?
My boss had every right to be a little perturbed this morning when I rolled in one and a half hours late due to "snow." Let's not mention that I only live 5 minutes from work.  Safety first!  

Enough of that, let's talk about my "Let it snow" xmas tree!
I'm participating in the Christmas Tree Link Party and have a chance to win $100 buckeroos--so follow that link and vote for me.
insert **cheesy smile**

I created several miniature trees this year. This one is one of my favorites for its bright colors and
 PURPLE-ness.  You can't tell by the tree is a light purple.

 Dancing around the tree are these cute little penquins with pink hats.  Check out the large snow flakes and matching ornaments.  I am so proud of this little tree!

Make sure to visit the linky party and vote for me.

Fancy Nancy and #ThrowBackThursday

My very own Fancy Nancy and ode to #throwbackthursday.
Vintage photo below (edited through PicMonkey)
is our family without dad at the local USO getting our picture made with Santa.
My mom, the cutest woman on the planet, is probably 34ish here with 6 children.
How did she do it?

Santa and the Seays 1967

Back to Nancy, she's the infant in the photo starring at the tree.

Nancy, sweet Nancy, the 3rd twin.  All these years later she wants a muff like ours(see photo).  I mentioned that to our mom recently and she said Nancy DID have a muff when she was younger, but it didn't make it in the photo.  Yay!  We have dispelled the "special" twin muff dispute.  

My sis, Nancy, had the hair I always wanted. Thick, red and cute curls. 

Oh, how I wanted curls like those! 
Here, one of my favorite photos of her ever. We loved to play dress up, hence the ball gown. In her lap is a neighbor's dog: Precious. (the most spoiled dog we knew back then-he ate better than his owner).

Let us pause a  moment and enjoy her bare feet. 

My sis, a loyal friend, dear sister, Mom 

 and loving Nana.  Watching her with her grandchildren makes me want to be an Oma soon.  No pressure-little brown eyed girl.  

Marley and Camden
Nancy makes me laugh and more importantly, she makes herself laugh so hard she cries.  
Here she is doing her version of the newest scandal. twerking 

Miley Cyrus has nothing on her
My sis loves to  chase orbs, check out how many are in this photo!

and she's experimenting with beads and painting

To you sis, happy #throwbackthursday!

Peace Out and Kiss my Ass Revisited

Revisiting old blog posts today and this one caught my eye.
Peace Out and Kiss my ass

In a nut shell I said.
Yep, heard those words today! 
And, not just from anybody.
But from someone posing as a GOOD role model for girls. 

Well, you know what I have to say to that?  Rock on with your bad self and move on from my organization! 

This picture is so not me...but the MR loves when I do something out of character.
And here are the comments:

  • You were way too kind...
  • you handled everything with c l a s s
  • If they said that because they were fired, I'd react as a relieved person to have weeded them out.

  1. Funny thing is after a year I can't even remember who told me that.  But, lets see what your thoughts are..
  2. Sock it to me.  
  3. I'm going through an anger phase and I want to hear your angry words.
  4. Give it your best shot
  5. What have you got to lose.

Mondays are a lame way to spend 1/7 of your life

I was just google searching for an "I hate Monday's photo when I found the above cartoon on another blog.
I believe most of the people that read my postings understand I'm just being silly.
It's just a cute theme for Mondays.
I don't hate Mondays
I don't discriminate against them or make them sit at the back of the bus
I just enjoy saying how much I hate them.  Just an expression.
To me, Monday is like any other day.
Except that it follows a Sunday where I get to rest and relax and take long Sunday naps
Except that, because of those Sunday naps I don't want to go to bed until late
Except that that dern alarm clocks goes off way to early on the first day after Sunday
maybe I do hate Mondays.
Sorry Mondays.  I'll pay for your therapy.

This blog had some interesting insights into Monday hatred.

Right on, Man

You know how sometimes you get the best insights from your friends.
The other day a dear friend of mine said, "...Georgie you kind of swing toward hippy...you try to hide it, but you do." I've been pondering that since my friend declared it.

 The age old question of "Who am I?"   When someone says Hippy, I think sex, drugs and rock and roll.  Not that there is anything wrong with that--if that's your thing.

That's not me though. I'm the good girl type....check out those dimples:. Could those dimples get into trouble?
...maybe. deny everything
that's my cute mom, by the way. The sweetest lady on the planet.

The Mr thought it was so cool that someone thought I was "hippy-ish" Rusty, that silly man says, "I like the earth mother type." 
hang on
I ain't no earth mother either. 
Although when I googled earth mother images they were pretty cool.  Check the image out below. I think I need to find out where this is an add it to my bucket list.  

Anyhow I'm rambling today-it's been awhile since I've blogged--don't have my groove on yet.
Stay tuned, give me your input and tell me what you think about hippies and earth mothers.

By the way, it's been almost a year now since the Mr was diagnosed with neck cancer and you would never know it if you hadn't been through it.  He looks and feels great. Here he is celebrating his birthday. Yay!

A letter to my dear ol' dad. Today, November 11, 2013 marks another Veteran's Day.

You tell us stories today of the good old days: the days when you barely escaped a bombing by diving out of the "bar" and into the bunker. And, everyone knew if you yelled, "Take cover," then they better take cover.  I love the story about how you jumped in the jeep to go get some bread for the breakfast meal only to find out you were on the front line.  Thank goodness no one got ya while you were out getting bread.

Most of all, I can remember those times when you would go off to either take another tour of Vietnam or when you returned from a long leg of training and all I wanted to do was crawl up in my daddy's lap and be with you.

From personal experience I know that there are many men that don't return from war. ( RIP Tommy Field and other from October 3rd, 1993.) I thank my lucky stars and my God in heaven that I have you in  my life today.
love ya pops!
