how hot I am! LOL! I went to the gym tonight and did a quick 30-minute work out. As I was getting a towel and bottle to wipe off the machine (yes, I was sweaty and probably smelly), one of the guys at the gym asked me how I was doing. I said I'm doing good and you? and that was the end of the story.
Being the...confident woman I am (read pot stirrer, trouble maker, imp, whatever works for you!), I told DH that he was hitting on me. LOL! I said that he was "sniffing" around me, checking me out. And, that DH better start coming with me to "protect his property." My goal is to get him to start coming to the gym and working out with me, but I think he saw through my ploy. We've been married a little over 19 years, so I think he's got me figured out by now.
Oh well, it was fun pretending! And who knows, maybe that little seed of jealousy will grow and he'll come with me again...in four or five years! LOL!

My son had a birthday party to go to today in the neighboring town. I decided that this was a good opportunity to take a little time to myself and do a little shopping. This may by TMI, so if you don't like to read about intimates, close this window now. LOL!
Anyway, I've needed new bras for awhile now and I decided to go to Victoria's Secret to get fitted and find a nice new bra. Turns out that I've been wearing the right size!!! Can you believe it? I hardly could. Anyway, I found one that I liked and of course it was $50!!! I bought it. There went most of my spending money.
But, I still had some $$ and some time, so I headed to ShopKo. As I'm heading back towards the sports bra area, I see clearance racks. And I hear them calling me. "Come look! It doesn't hurt to look. Come visit!" So, I did! LOL! The cool thing is I found a pair of black pants, in my size that fit beautifully (except they need hemmed...I am 5'1" after all), and they are only $5.49!!! Then, I headed to the intimates department. I ended up finding three sports bras and one normal one, all on clearance. I ended up buying the pants, four bras and a magazine for just under $23. Dang! That was awesome!!! I kind of wish I had gone there first. Then I might still have some money! LOL!
Oh, and I stopped by Sephora. Vera Wang has a new perfume out (at least it's new to me) called Rock Princess. I really like it! They gave me a free sample and now I have something new to save my money for! LOL! Why is it I can always find stuff to buy?

wants to go grocery shopping by herself? I'm not sure what kind that is, but I know I'm that kind! I took my 10-year old son with me to run all of my errands today, which included grocery shopping. Goodness, what a trip! We went to a bank inside of a grocery store first...he took some of the beans out of the pot holding pens. What was he planning to do with those beans? I do not know and do not want to know. Let's just say he put them back before he got the chance to act.
Next, we went to Costco (ugh!) and he "avoided" people. He did some funky moves and went way right or way left and swerved a lot. So, he did stay out of their way, but in a 10-year old boy way. LOL!
Next was the GF store where he took one of every single sample they had. The pumpkin cake was delish!
Wal-mart was our next stop (double ugh!) and he needed TWO chocolate milks. Yes, two. Yes, needed. He paid for them himself, so okay. They were both gone before we got out of the parking lot.
Last was the grocery store. He tried to be helpful and I tried to let him. Sometimes things take longer when you're being helped. But, the good news is that he asked for plums, peaches and apples. I almost said no (not on my list) until I realized he was asking for fruits! Duh!! Don't want to discourage that! He got them. LOL!
On the way home, he talked non-stop. I have no idea what he said cos it was just talking...and talking...and more talking. I guess that it is good that he wants to talk to me. I did realize, tho, that I really like my quiet time and I missed that today. The irony is that I just interrupted him and he told me that I "never let him talk." I guess we were in different vehicles all afternoon.
Okay, time to go watch Boise State Univ school Hawaii!

My boss told me that there are many things that will need to be done every day and that there was an easy way to prioritize them.
Do the stuff that will get me yelled at or fired if I don't do them first.
Do the stuff that has to be done to keep business going next.
Do stuff I want to do last.
Guess what never gets done! LOL!
Good thing I'm salary...they couldn't afford me otherwise!

I am so behind at work that I feel like I will never catch up. I will, but with the new learning I have to do, things take me longer than I think they should. I'm heading into work a couple of hours early tomorrow so I can some of the "gotta-do's" off my to-do list. If I can get those couple of things done, I will feel better about what's left. At least that's my plan!
On that note, good night!
