saturday ramblings

I noticed while reading the titles of my blogs that they pretty much center around the weekend. LOL You would think I have no fun during the week. That's because I usually don't. I get up at 4:30 am every weekday and am out the door by 5am. I work 10 hours most days then run whatever errands I need to before coming home. The drive home is about 30 minutes, and that is plenty of time for the stress of the workday to melt away. Once I get home, the shoes and bra come off (not necessarily in that order either) and I lapse into what most people would call...a vegetative state. LMAO Actually, I do make dinner and take care of one of two chores before I jump into the shower, but once I am in my jammies, I am pretty much done in. My job is not so much physical, although some days it seems like all I do is walk from one end of the building to the other and back again...but I have been given a few more responsibilities the last few months and that taxes my little brain!
Yesterday on one of my numerous trips through the building, I saw my cousin's husband, Lenny, coming toward me. He works in the adjacent building in the engineering department. I knew he worked there but this company employs over 600 people between two buildings and the chances of me running into him were pretty remote. Anyway it was good to see him. I come from a very large family, (I have 32 first cousins just on my father's side) and unfortunately the only time we all get together is for a wedding or a funeral. Speaking of which, one of the best memories of my wedding reception, was of him and two other semi drunk cousins, grabbing the DJ's mic and singing and playing air guitar to Brown Sugar by the Rolling Stones. Lenny doesn't remember it, but everyone at the reception does!

I got to sleep in this morning which I needed desperately. As I sit here, I can see the vaccuum cleaner across the room, I do believe it is beckoning me to turn it on! The dog is sleeping, however, and I would hate to disturb him. I'll wait til he wakes up. LOL I know, any excuse is a good excuse when it comes to doing housework, and I have a million of them! I have managed to clean my keyboard out though, so my time online hasn't been wasted. LOL

Ok the kid is home so I have to spend some time with her. Have a great day everyone!!

Wine...that's what I forgot to pick up. I think there is some beer in the fridge...but...I have connections to the liquor store. I bet all I have to do is make one phone call (and beg sweetly) and I will have some Captain Morgan delivered later this evening. LOL I could promise something else for some Jose Feliciano. LMAO

Many of my Saturdays are spent in a semi-vegetative state. I figure I work all week, and Sundays are spent over at my aunt's house, so Saturday is mine to do with as I choose, which usually means not much, lmao.

Saturdays are usually busy for me. Im either cleaning and getting ready to stream or out doing something (like yesterday). Sunday is usually the day I semi-vegetate. Well at least now it is because MrStyx is at work on Sundays and I have the house to myself. Got some chores to do but I'll wait a bit to do them.
