Please Don't Judge...

....but I ate KFC for dinner. Don't get me wrong there's nothing wrong with fast food or drive thru windows but I just have this disgust for the Kentucky Fried, chiefly because I hate chicken skin and bones. Seeing as that's the case I did order the chicken strip vote is a blah and a half. Said fast food joint is the closed eatery to my house and in the 5 1/2 years that I've lived in this neighborhood I've NEVER pulled ordered at that window. I was just so hungry and don't have any food in my house other than the huge block of velveeta and as much as I love queso and could make some I don't even have any chips to scoop into my mouth. Yes, I know going to the freaking grocery store would solve 90% of the problem but I was ready to be at home and in couch clothes. This is NOT what I unwrapped when I got home - trust me the 16 year old that made my wrap forgot that it might actually need to be wrapped.....duh!

But like always the Diet Dr Pepper was EXCELLENT so that get the bonus star for today!!!

After work I had some serious errand running to take care of so the mall was beckoning. I had a shirt to drop off at the alterations place, needed to get Designer a couple of bridal shower gifts so I can get them in the mail (one of her parties is on Sunday, oops). I also did some returning and exchanging to do thanks to Bath & Body Works and Victoria's Secret. Then there was Hobby Lobby for the rest of Designer's shower gifts. She's getting married on November 15th so one of the showers is featuring at Christmas ornament presentation for their first tree. Super cute idea so I got this fantastic glass honeymoon getaway car with the tin cans attached to the back. I would also like to announce that I didn't make any frivolous purchases....just lots of window shopping thank you very much.

We're not Crazy....We're just Catholic

Thought this was super funny and since it's Sunday why not!

----------Reasons why people think we're "crazy"----------

-We like to keep Mass interesting. We sit, stand and kneel, in no particular order. Probably just to keep the blood flowing.

- It's not merlot and Ritz they're serving; it's the Flesh and Blood of Jesus. No, really.

- Infant Baptism isn't dumb; it's after-life insurance.

- We really like statues. A lot.

- After every confession, everyone hits themselves on the head. This is because they have realized that they forgot that really big sin, and they know that it'll hang over their head til the next time.

- We've always been taught that celibacy til marriage is the only way to go, forever and ever, amen. That being said...- "Sin on Saturday. Pray on Sunday. Confess on Monday".

- The Virgin Mary is not a God and we don't treat her as such. But she is without sin, gave birth to Jesus and did it without having sex. That warrants more than a little respect.

- There are two very different, irreconcilable factions in every single church in the world. They are known as the Saturday or Sunday Mass bunch.

- You miss JPII more than you miss some relatives... but who misses that child molester uncle anyway?

- Priests have been giving us alcohol since we were little kids. No wonder any one of us can drink Protestants under the table.

-Whatever you gave up for Lent, you have it in your hands at 11:59 p.m. Saturday night, counting the seconds til midnight.

- We all know Da Vinci code is bogus and inaccurate. Yet we'll still read it if nothing else is going on

-We have Midnight Mass so there are no interruptions on Christmas morning

- You've slipped out an Amen after the Pledge of Allegiance.

- Holy Water can kill just about anything. So Protestants are pretty much screwed if a vampire comes calling.

- Pope Benedict XVI scares you. Badly.

- It's not uncommon for just one family to take up an entire pew or two.

- When in doubt, say a Hail Mary.

- Whenever anyone in Star Wars saga says "May the Force Be With You", we get the urge to say "And Also With You"

- The Pope does indeed wear a funny hat. But it's way more interesting than Joel Osteen's suit and tie.

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday

I was wrong and I'll be the first to admit it.....the furniture was successfully moved back into the living room and the world is right again. Bro and Ad Girl totally rocked this weekend by helping set up for the baby shower and then helping move all the furniture back in this afternoon; I think mostly because Bro wanted to take a nap and watch football but hey who cares why? Awesomeness is also the status because after mass went to the favorite Tex Mex place and they took care of the bill at lunch today. That's a rock star in my book. Ad Girl gets a bonus star for ordering a glass of champagne with lunch. You might be thinking; this girl eats a lot of tex mex and the answer is YES! Who wouldn't love melty cheese on top of ranchero sauce and tortillas filled with more melty cheese - duh.

Things I'm loving about today:

1. Blackout curtains in the living room to make it extra dark for napping.....thanks for doing that mom.

2. Fall decorations I just finished putting out including this wreath.

3. The Tyler Candle burning that smells kinda like heaven; sent French Market.

4. The Ice Tea Maker

5. Not really have anything to do.....

So it really does all work out in the mom is right. I've been stressing over the baby shower hosting but it was great. The tables were decorated beautifully (if I do say so myself), the food was good, and the mommy-to-be was showered with 10,000 gifts. I would say it was hit with just a few snags along the way. There are always thing you learn about yourself and other when doing something like this......some good and some bad.

My cousin, Coach, was in with her new baby for the shower and it was great to get to hang out with her afterward. She's got the house of crazy and it was nice to be able to visit. She's got 4 kids and is in the middle of building a new house so the current 2/1 they are renting is getting really old. I believe the words were the walls are closing in and the kids are all getting bigger; if we're not in the new house before Christmas, Santa's going to have a lot of explaining to do! Not that I don't love her kids but it was nice for her husband to take on 3 out of 4 for her today.

Procrastination: I currently sit on my living room floor....why you ask? Well I have all of my furniture in the garage and can't move it by myself. Bro helped my move it out for the shower and he isn't coming back over tonight to help my return it. More than likely it could be a week before I have it back in here....I'm taking bets. How long do you think I can live without the couch?

Waiting on a chicken

So it seems that procrastination can be anywhere. My brother is in town and we went to eat at my favorite texmex place for lunch. It was packed, as usual for a Friday when there are 10,000 things going on in and around town this weekend. After consuming about 10,000 baskets of chips and hot sauce, I started to wonder what was taking so long. Bro ordered the Straight Plate, enchiladas with eggs on top but it's on the menu so it wasn't crazy or anything. I look at Bro and ask what the problem could be...

Bro: maybe they ran out of eggs or something
Me: yeah or maybe they have a chicken in the back and they are waiting for it to lay the stupid eggs on your enchiladas...

Now that's procrastination....waiting for a chicken to lay an egg

Friday Business

It's Friday people!!! You all know what that means, tons of errand running, driving around town and general non-real job stuff. I'm hosting a baby shower at my house tomorrow from 11:00am-1:00pm and the house is nowhere near ready for people to come over. Here are a few of the things I've procrastinated on all week and have to get finished before 10:00am tomorrow...

1. Mow the lawn

2. Clean the kitchen floor (after last weekend's flower havoc - it's an insult to linoleum everywhere)

3. Wash the sheets in the guest room

4. Vacuum the entire house

5. Wash the guest bathroom towels

6. Move the living room furniture into the garage and set up the long tables and chairs

It should be doable but I also have my brother and girlfriend spending the weekend at my house so I'm thinking Bro should help....


There is always a good excuse...for procrastination. I've been a procrastinator all my life, even from the beginning like going five days past my mom's due date, not loosing my baby teeth before my permanent teeth started coming in; you know, stuff like that. I would like to blame someone for this trait but who. It's not like my parents could genetically give that to me, or could they?

I like to pretend that I strive under the pressure of a deadline but for some reason I push it to the extreme 90% of the time. In this blog you will get to know the true and sometimes crazy procrastination that is my life and there will be backfires for sure. Sit back, laugh and take some time to enjoy the procrastination.
