I should not be offended

I take my test to keep my certification on Saturday! I am sooooo not ready. This is just a trial run. I’m getting up at 6ish, dropping my dog off with my mom, eating breakfast and then nervously starting. I need to make an 80. I think I could make a 70 but 80? Ack. I haven’t studied much at all, but I’m hoping with 3.5 hours, I get a chance to think through my answers.

My dog is really into the Pope coverage. I have a beef with Pope Francis. He said not having children is selfish. So screw him. 😉


My shrink wants me to get off Zoloft (probably about time) and try Lexapro. I don’t know how I feel about that. Medicine is not the issue right now. STRESS is the issue. Working 50+ hours is the issue. Too much work and not enough time is the issue. I did get some relief at work these past couple weeks. I’m trying to capitalize on that. If it means working late some days, I’m fine with that. As long as I get things done… Medicine isn’t going to solve shit, but thanks for caring. I will try the Lexapro. It better not increase my appetite. lol


I don’t have any closets in my house. NONE. I finally ordered a decent clothes rack from The Container Store. Here is a video of it:

That is the official vid. I must say it looks better in other people’s videos.  So shiny, just gorgeous.  Anyhow, I ordered it on Sunday. They took my money, but it hasn’t shipped yet. :/ I live an hour away from the closest store. I don’t need it now. I probably won’t put it together until my October vacay. But I wish it would ship already.

It is going in my ex-office (which is really a dining room). I have to make room for it. Fall cleaning is what I’ll be doing next month.


I’m already daydreaming about my road trip to California. I don’t even know when it is happening. Next year I already have plans. So maybe 2017? I think I’m going to drive to CA and fly back just to save time. I would love to drive back and stay at different places overnight, but I can’t even think about that. Too overwhelming and how many days would it take?  I know I want to stay overnight in Texas and CA. I definitely will have more stops than that. I will sleep in a hotel every night. That will be about 7 to 8 hotels. I would love to stay two nights in Texas (Austin & Corpus Christi) and California (southern & northern). So exciting…and I have no idea how it is going down, but I’m starting to plan.

I might even vlog my experience. I have never vlogged a day in my life. I rarely even watch vlogs but that would be so cool. And awkward for me. lol.  I’m getting way to excited about this. Back to life.


How is that for the most random entry? I’m all over the place.

This week I…

Music of the week: Leona Lewis, James Bay, Selena Gomez, Jewel, Delta Rae, The Weeknd, Ariana Grande, Maddie & Tae

Song of the week: James Bay – Scars

James Bay = great

TV of the week: Big Brother, How to Get Away With Murder

I  gave Murder a chance because I like Shonda Rhimes. At first I hated it. I thought, “Oh no, not another Scandal!” But I’m kind of getting into it. I don’t like crime shows. I don’t like one crime per episode being solved. Pet peeve. But I do like the ongoing saga going on with this show. For now it is definitely watchable, but I’m not hooked.

*Spoiler Alert* I’m thrilled with who won Big Brother. The jury picked the BEST PLAYER and not who they liked the best. Yay, jury!! I’m kind of bummed Vanessa didn’t win anything, but she is a millionaire. She’ll be fine. She also made costly mistakes in her game so maybe she didn’t deserve to be in the final two.

Movies of the week:  none. I’m thinking about seeing a movie during my 3-day vacay in October. I haven’t been to the movies since Lincoln came out. (I think…or was it Fruitvale Station?) Anyway, if the reviews are good, I may go see The Intern. I love Anne Hathaway. I kind of have to see something mainstream because the indie theater near me closed. 😦 That was a very sad day for us locals.

Books of the week:  I finished two books this week:  The Power of 100! Kickstart Your Dreams, Build Momentum, and Discover Unlimited Possibility  by Shaun King and  Luther: The Life and Longing of Luther Vandross by Craig Seymour.

The Luther book was a heartbreaker at the end (of course!). 😦  I just started  Soul Shifts: Transformative Wisdom for Creating a Life of Authentic Awakening, Emotional Freedom, &  Practical Spirituality by Dr. Barbara De Angelis. I’m planning on starting more books this weekend. So many choices!
