Random Tuesday Thoughts...Winning, Losing and Complaining....
It’s seems like forever since I’ve been random or at least participated in RTT. So, without further adieu, let’s get cracka a lackin…Hop over and visit The Un Mom, who loves to host this AWESOME event...
We took The Boy to the horse races for his 18th birthday celebrations. It was his choice, so don’t judge me. I forgot how much fun the races were – especially when you are winning! When all was said and done, J and I (really it was just me) won about $60. The Boy and his buddy had a great time, but lost about $40. Regardless of winning or losing, the memories we made were priceless.
In about a week, J and I are off to Sedona, AZ for a week of hiking and photo taking (by J). Yes, you heard me right HIKING. Did I mention that fact that I don’t like to exert myself? Whose bright idea was this? Wait…maybe it was mine. I’m the one that suggested Sedona, but my thoughts were of shopping, sightseeing and more shopping. It was J that decided we should see some backcountry. WTH? How did he manage to become so confused?
There was no way in hell, I was leaving my fate to J when it comes to picking hiking trails, so I ordered a book on hiking trails in the Sedona area. The book I chose - “Best Easy Day Hikes” (with an emphasis on EASY). Woot! With a title like that, I should have it made.
I don’t think I’ve mentioned it before, but I've (Flamingo Tongue Designs) been selected as an exhibitor in a regional Christmas craft show. It’s kind of a big deal to be chosen considering the artist guild running the show are a pretty close knit bunch and rarely let in outsiders. Now, I need to kick my jewelry making sweatshop into high gear to make sure I’m ready in time with lots of inventory.
Work is still boring as ever. I’ve even lost the energy to make fun of my co-workers. Help me!
