Stuff & things

--Things have been busy around here. Tuesday T went to a yoga class for tweens & she got to make a bracelet with essential oils.
--Last night we ended up at Grand opening of a new bar & grill in town. It was packed & so loud, but it was the 1st night. I'm sure things will calm down. The food was really good & cool atmosphere
--I'm achey as Hell right now. I'm hoping it's not the weather causing it because it's only September & it's not that cold. If so it's going to be a long Winter.We had the heat on a few times in the morning this week. It was 39 1 day.
--Kizmet (our cat went to the vet for her yearly check up. She was trying to open the drawers & the door, she was trying to open the door by the doorknob. The vet thought she was interesting & sassy. Well that is her middle name.

I've been trying to do a bit of yoga. We went to a new studio today that just opened a month ago. Tara did a tween class. She had fun & got to make some bracelets with essential oils. I was hoping it would be good for her. She has some anger issues. She wants to do it again sometime. I might try a gentle yoga class there. So we'll see what happenings & If we'll stick with it

Good Hair Day

I thought the Drama Queen looked cute today. She had a good hair day. That doesn't happen often. She barely brushes her hair. I wish she would let me try different hair styles on her, so I could get better at doing hair.

Nail Files. Week # 274

Just got this polish today. I forgot my coupon, but decided to get it anyway. It's Sally Hansen Miracle Gel~Purplexed. I need to add a top coat. But it's a really pretty color. Hoping I can get it to last a while since it's 1 of the gel polishes. Earlier this week my nails chipped bad, quick, so I never even took pics.

Kizmet has been our roomie for a year now

A year ago today we brought Kizmet home. She was very skinny & had come from a hoarding house & just had 4 babies. So she needed some love. She's really sweet & makes us smile. I'm so glad that we found each other. Looking forward to many more years with her.

She loves doing yoga with me.

It's been a Year Since You Left Us

I can't believe it's been a year since JoJo passed away. 1 of the hardest decisions I ever had to make. A lot has happened in a year. I just can't believe it's been a year since I saw her face or smelled her fur.
 This is 1 of my fave pictures of her from 2000, the year I adopted her.

Today, we put a pumpkin on her grave & we have a new Mum plant on it.

I also have her pawprint tattoo, so she will always be with me. So glad I got it before the 1 year anniversary of her death.

Hey, It's Okay

--To be happy that "Tardy for the Party" is back on. They make me laugh.

--To be happy when the Drama Queen goes to bed & we have some peace & quiet, after all the homework drama.

--To not be surprised about Angelina & Brad.

--To hate Fall & pumpkin flavor.

Mommy & Me Monday

On Saturday we went to a benefit for my friend Marion. She had colon cancer & finally finished her chemo treatment, so they had a benefit to help her with some of her expenses. It was at a club & some local bands played. It was all ages, so Tara came with us. Look I added purple to my hair too. It washes out in a few washes. So this pic was taken on the way to the benefit.

Hey, It's Okay

It's okay...

* That I'm excited for some reality shows coming back on. "Tardy for the Party", "The Manzos" & "Ben & Lauren".

* To be glad that our crazy busy weekends traveling are over until next Summer.

* To be glad that I have some free time now that Tara is back to school.

* To be addicted to make-up. Just wish I had the $ to buy all that I want.

* To be relieved that I don't have to bring T to dance this year. Being in the waiting room killed my fibro with all the noise. I can't see at night & have better things to do with my time.

Mommy & Me Monday

So we went away this weekend overnight. We stayed at Anthony's friend's condo. There is a clubhouse with like 6 pools, a hot tub & a bunch of other things. Anthony ended up sick & sleeping on a lounge chair, but I went in the hot tub & 2 pools with T. I never go in the water, but I felt bad that he was sleeping. I think she had fun.

New England Minute~The White Mountains

The weather wasn't that great. It started raining when we got there

I went in the hot tub with Tara & 2 pools because Anthony wasn't feeling too good.

We went to Common Man for a drink. I got a hibiscus margarita. I wanted to try something different. But it was pretty gross. We have a Common Man in our town.

At the end of a Long Day, What do you do to relax?

*I usually soak my feet in an epsom salt bath, it has eucalyptus in it & spearmint before bed.
*If it's Fall or Winter, I like to light candles.
*I read books, magazines, color in my coloring book & write letters.
*I like to do a facial mask & make sure that all of my make up is off.
*I try to get off of the computer an hour before I go to bed.
*Sometimes I do some yoga stretches. I'd like to do that more often.

What do you do to relax?

New England Minute~Old Orchard Beach, Maine

We went to Old Orchard Beach yesterday for the day. We met up with some friends that were there. We went there last year on Labor day weekend. It was cooler this year than last. So I brought a sweatshirt & some leggings. It was around 70-75.

We love their french fries. We add salt & vinegar. This was our lunch.

Nail Files. Week # 271

This is a polish that I got this week at Justice. Yes, the kids store. I was in there with Tara & remember asking the lady that worked there before, how it was & she had it on her toes. It was in the mark down area & was $1.99. It's Justice Changes color in the Sun. But I don't see a name on it. It's suppose to change color in the sun, but I've had it on for a few days & it hasn't changed colors. It's suppose to turn to a purplish color. It's a pretty color anyway even if it doesn't change colors. My thumb painting is a bit messy, sorry.

Montly Goals for September

So September is 1 of my most hated months because it means that Summer is over & I know what is coming. Football, cold weather, the leaves changing etc.. This August was a pretty bad month, so I'm hoping that September is better.

* Have a date night with Hubby.
* Go for coffee/tea with a friend.
* Start doing hair masks & facial masks.
* Get 10 scrapbook pages done.
* Make my new Happy Planner look pretty.
