What's on My Mind?

Today is Thursday (thank God!) which means it's almost Friday as well as it's Writer's Workshop day with Mama Kat! Yay! The prompt that I picked today is: Write a list of ten things on your mind this week. I thought this one was a great one to do since I have been a little absent from the blogosphere lately.

1. I HATE working on Saturdays, especially since this is this one of the two days that I actually get to see my husband. I also hate feeling like I'm going to lose my job or get my manager in trouble if I actually have plans on the weekends and can't attend. I think it's unfair to give your employees goals to hit to get out of Saturdays and then change them on Thursday morning. But whatever, who am I to say anything.

2. I LOVE my Lola! She has been doing so good with going to the bathroom outside. She is so cute, but very time consuming. Unfortunately, right now we have a biting problem that we are working on. Any tips would be greatly appreciated! She loves to play and been tiring me out everyday haha. I thought puppies needed lots of sleep? She must be doing that while I'm at work. She will close her eyes for two seconds with me then will have a sudden burst of energy.

3. I need to finish my tax return today so I can hurry up and get my refund back. Maybe my husband and I can plan our summer vacation this weekend. I have no idea where we want to go right now, but all I want is the beach, sun, and a frozen drink in my hand. Ahhh. Wherever this place is on my computer background might be nice to visit. It gets me through the day.

4. I've had several requests to do the 25 random things about me list. I've given it some thought and decided I wouldn't be able to make it interesting enough so I'll be thinking of something else to do in replacement of it. Sorry guys! I can hardly read all the way through other people's so why would they want to read mine?

5. I know a lot of people who are pregnant right now and they are all having boys. Are we going to be having a shortage of females in the world soon? Please tell me you guys know of someone having girls!

6. I have been thinking a lot about this quote that I have taped to my computer at work..."If you don't like something, change it, if you can't change it, change the way you think about it." - Mary Engelbreit. It sounds so simple, but it's something I struggle with.

7. I can't wait to make my Valentines Day cards this weekend. Thanks to the $1 aisle at Target, several people will be getting cute little cards from me and Michael! I have a really cute idea for one of them that I can't reveal just yet!

8. I think I'm turning into a caffeine addict. I really have to have it to get me through the day now. Maybe it's just my change in schedule?

9. It really bothers me that I'm so far behind with my blogging. It's crazy how much reading you have to do to get caught up with everyone when you have only missed just a few day! I have been missing my creative outlet so much this week!


  1. I know it's not nice but I'm laughing over that card! Brilliant!

  2. Can I just tell you - that quote is amazing!! It hits home for me in so many areas in my life. I am going to post it on my computer as well - so VERY true!

    Thanks for sharing :)

  3. Aw Laura,

    The list is sooo honest and I loved it!!!!
    I miss you girlfriend and I hope you're enjoying your new addition - she's way too cute!

  4. OMG i totally agreed bout the baby Boy thing they're so everywhere.. but i guess we shouldn't worry much, i think it's still a good thing that most of them are having boys, why? coz most of that Baby Boy will eventually grow up GAY & will come looking for another Boy, & girls like us will have to compete with them.. I think were running out of the Real Male Species.. hahaha... :)

  5. Great quote, I need to post that on my desk! I'm not sure the situation with your mom but I am not close at all with my bilogical father and I feel so much better after forgiving him for all he has done in the past or really his lack of involvement. Keep you head up and stay strong. I'm sure it will all work out for the best!

    Oh yeah, if it makes you feel any better we haven't started on our taxes yet. I am dreading filing together for the first time as a married couple. I want to just do mine and get lots of money back!

  6. I'm pretty sure coffee sustains my life, so I think we're going down the same road. Parrrrtay.

    25 things is the most boring thing to write about. It's a good thing you decided not to do it. Don't turn back!

  7. I'm completely boycotting the 25 things about me craze too...i'm not doing it! Maybe we should start a I DON'T wanna know 25 things about you craze :)

  8. Wow. Quite a list. I wanted to take a nap for you. Great quote. If you can't have coffee, there's always chocolate. Jillian's idea is terrific, btw.

  9. Hey my few followers, you guys might have to re-follow me because my URL was freaking out and wont work but i fixed it and had to change the url link, so same blog just different link. If you try to click my old link it wont take you too my blog. Sorry for the inconvenience!!!! You will be rewarded with new post!

  10. I love that quote! A very good goal for which to strive...and a frustrating one!

    P.S. I've been out of town for two days and consistently have been neglecting everyone's blogs! It's SO HARD to catch up!

  11. I loved your list, and the quote. My group of girlfriends that has had babies have had girls so hopefully there wont be a shortage:)

  12. Dog biting - you can use a shakey can (pennies in a washed out empty soda can) or a spray bottle. Just a gentle shake of the can or spray of the bottle when she starts to bite. Or you can give her a really STERN no. Catch her off guard with the tone of your voice (no need to yell). She'll get startled so much that she will learn not to do it. Good luck!!

  13. Suzi: Thanks!

    Bella: I know, right? They don't make birthday cards that say "I really don't like you right now, but I feel like I need to send you this card." - Oh well, maybe it's best just not to send one.

    Mama: Hope it helps!

    Makie: Thanks, and yes we are enjoying her (most of the time haha).

    In My Purple Shoes: Welcome to my blog!

    Sassy and Classy Southern Mrs.: Thanks for the encouragement. I've been struggling with forgiveness, mostly because everytime I try to forgive, something else happens. I'm just not sure what's going to work for me right now, but I'm sure I will figure it out.

    Cheryl: Yeah....I just can't do it haha. I'd bore myself.

    Jillian: Sounds like a fun club!

    Sometimes Sophia: Yeah, I'm a sugar addict too. Not so much chocolate. Sour Patch Kids, Nerds, and Peach Rings do the trick for me!

    La Pixie: I know, I know!

    Gwen B: It seems to still be working for me! Thanks for the info though.

    Sassy Britches: I know!

    Bridget: Shew, good - I was really starting to worry.

    bodaat: I'm liking this spray bottle far I've just been sticking her paw in her mouth, but I think she's too smart for me.


Comments make my day! Go ahead...get to typing. I want to hear from you.
