10 Thoughts Tuesday...the sleepy addition

1. I am on vacation unofficially! I have a class tomorrow but after that, whoo hoo!

2, Tamirisc and I are going to Manitou for the weekend. It is the weekend before his birthday (on Monday) and that is where he wanted to go. I am in total agreement of course. Why wouldn't I? It is beautiful there. See?

3. The last time we were there snow was on the ground and it was cold. It will be nice to go up there this time in the Summer.
4. Did I mention Tamirisc is going to be 50 years old. Just sayin'.
5. As I mentioned before, I am almost done with classes for the Summer. I have  two full classes left and then final next Wed. I am going to be sooooooo glad to have that over with.
6. Of course then I start over in August. As I write, I have 14 hours on the books right now. I am thinking about adding another class. However, this class would be a fun one...tap dance!

7. I don't know, do you think it is crazy to take a tap dance class. I mean with all my back and leg problems?
8. Seriously, I need some advice here.
9. As I said in my title, I am sleepy. Really sleepy. It is beginning to rain here and that does not help. I wonder why it is we get sleepy when it is raining?
10. Tamirisc and I are considering going back to MO again for Christmas. Ok, so we aren't really considering it, we have decided! Now it is called getting funds to do just that. I almost would like to drive there BUT that is one long drive from Condo Lane and Tamirisc does not have his license yet.

Bonus thoughts:
1. Did she just say Tamirisc does not have his license? Yes, yes, I did!  He has never driven before. He had hoped to get his license before his birthday but that just has not happened. In part due to the fact we do not have a car. He was so proud (as I was) when he got his permit.
2. Unlike my home state of MO, here in Condo Lane, CO, you can keep your permit up until 3 years before renewing it. In MO I believe it is only 60 days.
3. None of my family is able to come out this way now. I hoped they would but now they cannot. sigh...I have not seen them since beginning of February. I miss them a lot.
4. Our grand-daughter will be almost 1 year old before we get to see her.
5. Isn't she cute?

Well enough for now...yawn...peace & love,
Naila Moon

Sometimes it is just better to go back to bed

You know, there are days, like today for example, that you just wish you had stayed in bed. Or if nothing else could push a button for a restart.

My day started out with me having severe stomach issues. However, I just thought I would not let that get to me and go on with the day.  For the most part it didn't bother me much but I will still kind of sick.

I had breakfast as usual with Tamirisc out on the balcony. We were discussing a trip we are going to be taking next weekend and I was renting a car on line.  This is when the trouble for the rest of the day started.

I was just getting ready to take my credit card out to enter the numbers when another credit card flew out of my wallet. It was like slow motion as it flew out and I tried to grab it only for it to go flying off of the balcony. Thats right, over the side it went! I was yelling for my hubby to go and see if it landed on the parking lot (we live 6 floors up) and trying desperately to see if it had landed below us.

My hubby raced down stairs and nothing! So, we wrote notes and put them on the doors of each condo below us. All day we waited for neighbors to come home and answer our plea. Nothing! We called the building manager to help us out. He was no help!

Believe me when I say I was (am still) very upset. This card was not just a credit card but also my bus pass, student ID and connected to my financial aid at college. Grrr

Of course if that was not enough, my condo was a disaster. Now normally this would probably not bother me so much but frankly, I was a crazy woman. I mean, one dust ball was all it took and I lost it! 

In the path of all this crazed manic mayhem was Tamirisc. Oh yes, one wrong word, one wrong look and he was in the dog house for most of the day. Let's just say it was not pretty and he started cleaning out kitchen before you could blink an eye.

The day was just blah.  Even the dinner I had made for us this evening turned out whacked. What the heck?
Finally, I did seem to calm down and come back to some sense of reality by evenings end. However, if  as they say an ending to a "perfect" day. My Mother called only to inform me that a long time family friend had died, who just happened to be my Mom's God-Mother.

Ugh!  Tomorrow has got to be a better day. Oh, and I guess I will be calling the bank to cancel my cards too.
Watch it show up on Monday.

So...how was your day?

Peace...~Naila Moon

10 Thoughts Tuesday

1. I decided to go back to doing 10 thoughts Tuesday. I guess I just missed doing it. You know it was kinda habit forming.
2. I am glad to see others still post 10 thoughts...nice very nice.
2. I am going to start cross posting these thoughts on Blogger. I have found a nice little nitch there. (hello everyone)
3. Blogger feels like X-ply used to. I suppose I can never get away from X-ply though because I have some really fab friends here that I would surely miss. I am glad to be making new ones there.
4. It is pushing 100 degrees today and the hubby wants me to make him my famous...well it isn't that famous...chili. 

I think he is a little nuts!     
5. Did you ever wonder why they call it chili? It is not cold after all.
6. I went to school this Summer and I really should have taken it off. I am so freakin' tired!!!!
7. Fall semester is only like 3 weeks away. Oh my gosh!
8. The hubby is having his 50th birthday a week from next Monday. We are planning to go to Manitou next weekend for his b-day. It is where he wants to go and somehow we are going to make that happen!!
9. Has anyone seen Despicable Me yet? If you haven't by all means go!!  I also hear Karate Kid is really good. I have been told almost better than the original.
10. I have already contracted with the Minions to be my Minions in my bid to take over the world. I am only writing this so that my #1 Henchman remembers to have them polish my crown. *wink*

Bonus thoughts:
1. My kingdom is quite small right now and it is intolerable!
2. I wonder how many people have taken me seriously when I say I am taking over the world?
3. You have? Good! lol
4. btw-it is nice to be sorta back. How ya been?

5. For Blogger folks I created a button. I like buttons but I cannot seem to get the scroll box thing to working yet. Anyone help me????

Have a great week...peace.

Meet Me On Monday & stuff

Hi, my name is Naila Moon...well, at least that is what I go by here. I have several other blogs but am devoting this one to the stuff. Ya know, all the stuff that just does not fit elsewhere. If you want to read my other stuff I would be most gracious if you do.

As I said in the title, I am a "Meet Me Monday" virgin. I am happy to meet you all and hope to get to know you a little as I get to know you. I love the virtual world as I live in the real. *grins*

So on to it for this week:

1. What do your normally eat for breakfast?

I usually eat whatever the hubby cooks for me. This could include cereal or pancakes. Maybe it will be cantaloupe or yogurt.

2.  What kind of vehicle do you drive?

Since my son wrecked my car two years ago I do not drive a car. On occasion we will rent a car but for the most part both of us ride the city bus.

This is what my car looked like before my son wrecked it.

3.  Have you ever met a famous person(s)?

I met some baseball player when I was in high school but I do not remember his name. Really made an impression didn't he.

I have stayed on Kenny Roger's bus. Does that count??

4.  What is your favorite ice cream flavor?

I really like cherry vanilla but will eat vanilla or chocolate.

5.  Which TV Channel do you watch the most?

When I watch TV I watch a variety. I do like HGTV and some NBC shows. I will watch the Food Network on occasion and right now On Demand is the greatest!

Have a great week and maybe I will see you Friday but for sure next Monday or on the other blogs. Peace........NM
