Make it work!


I feel beat down. It seems that we are always going somewhere, somebody is coming here and I am entertaining. I love, love, love to have company and to cook and have friends over but after this summer.....whew! It has been non-stop. Maybe this heat has gotten to me. Whatever it is, Coco is plum worn out!

I would KILL for a weekend of nothing. No husband, no kids. Just laying in my bed, a "Laguna Beach" and/or "The Hills" marathon on the television. Surrounded by a nice clean house, a nice bottle of red wine, and a refrigerator filled with cheese. No laundry sitting in the dryer getting wrinkled.
Kind of like the weekend Hubby had last weekend. Well, except he doesn't mind laying in clutter and can obviously sleep and relax with lots of chores to be done. And Crystal Lite and venison sausage will do the trick in regards to food.
Still bitter you ask? Me? Noooooo.......

This weekend was a lot of fun, just crazy. We drove to Southlake, Texas on Saturday morning for our annual "Cousin's Day" reunion with Hubby's fam. It is our 4th annual and really a blast. Their are 13 grandkids all 7 and under with one on the way. Somebody is always pregnant. The kids play and the grown ups eat, drink and get merry.

We all had a wonderful time seeing each other and the evening was an overall success. It is a great tradition that we have started and it is only going to get better each year. Pics soon to come. I of course forgot the camera and Hubby refused to turn around. Which now I am glad we didn't because that would of made our trip 6 hours and 4 minutes, rather than just 6 hours.

Yes, we did manage to turn a 4 hour trip up there into a 6 hour trip. This was totally my fault and I am still being reminded of this blunder. Oops! You would seriously of thought I was the first person in the history of modern transportation that had given bad directions.

OK, change of topic. Has anyone seen "Million Dollar Listing" on Bravo? What the fuck?????? Who in God's name would trust these fools to sell or buy a home for them. The one guy, Chad, has such a jacked up hair cut that I have to change the channel every time his face appears on the screen. And he can't read cue cards for shit. Chad also had that spit problem that drives me bonkers. When the white stuff starts collecting in the corners of the persons mouth. Yuck.
Then there is this other guy, Josh, who is like 21 and is a party animal! His grandmother discovered polyester or some crazy shit like that and so now he sells million dollar homes to idiots.
The bi-sexual hottie is named Madison. Which is actually a very fitting name for a bi-sexual since it is kind of unisex. (Though I doubt this was his parents thought process when picking out a name for their brand new bouncing baby boy) He is the most normal by far and super cute. Gay? Who knows. Straight? Maybe. Madison likes to dabble in both. Whatever floats your boat, dude. His abs are fanfreakingtastic, that I am not confused about!

If you haven't checked it out, please do. Just to make fun of it. You really only have to watch it for 15 minutes to get the jest of how dumb these guys are. It makes me glad I am not a multi-millionaire because clearly that zaps you of all brain power and personality. (I will just keep telling myself this)

Bravo usually has top notch reality shows. I know this is a bit of an oxymoron but come on, Tim Gunn? It doesn't get classier than that. I guess that is why it surprises me about this show, these guys are just silly.

Not a Tim Gunn in the bunch.

Wow, sounds like you have been busy. I like having things to do....but I have to have some downtime as well.

Glad you are a running addict....hopefully C25K will at least make me a halfway decent runner.... :)

Love Tim and Project Runway. I've actually seen a glimpse of Million Dollar Listing... and for sure, I'm going with Century 21 before I call those morons. They were making fun of that one guy on the Soup last week. So funny!
