Wine & Cheese ~ 95th Serving

wineandcheese2Welcome to Wine & Cheese, my weekly, Wednesday whine session.

Most Wednesdays I devote a blog to whining. Despite being a really happy, positive person, I do have things that annoy me at times. I never let anything grate on my nerves for long but thought it would be fun to vent them periodically in my blogs. I also feel that good things, the cheese in life, should be acknowledged as well. I’m even going to throw in a bit of dessert, a piece of virtual chocolate, something that made me laugh or smile just a bit more than normal.

 WINE WHINE

😦  I am so done with winter.  I mean really over it.  I know we don’t have the snow Boston does but still, I’m really ready for SPRING!

😦  Now, no offense to those with a handicap placard who really need it, so save the hate mail.  But really folks, it clearly states on it to NOT DRIVE WITH IT HANGING ON YOUR MIRROR!  Remove it when driving.  And when that is hanging on the mirror and you are driving, does it make your car go slower or what?  Do the freaking speed limit or get off the road slow poke!  And for the record, if you can walk the entire mega super size grocery store, you don’t need to park in a handicap spot.  Save it for the folks who really need it.  Being obese is not an excuse, for crying out loud you NEED the extra steps!  And again you manage to walk the entire store, you can handle the walk in the lot.  Oh, and you can walk 20 feet TO PUT YOUR SHOPPING CART WHERE IT BELONGS! STOP BEING LAZY!

11012214_793607624058097_1983430516_n😦  There is nothing quite like a crushed roll of toilet paper.  It is never quite right again.  Instead of pulling it and it rolls smoothly, you get a rollthump-rollthump-rollthump.  And the paper usually rips at the thump part so you end up with 6 individual sheets.  Kind of annoying, like a shopping cart with one bad wheel that you should still PUT IN THE PROPER PLACE!

CHEESE

🙂  Life is good.  I mean really good.  The Badge, he is just awesome sauce!  We have a time table for the move to Sarasota (before mid-autumn this year) and we have 10 glorious days of vacation on Siesta Key coming up the end of June and beginning of July.

🙂  My baby girl finally, at 5 months along, has a baby bump!  She is one of those really fit people so her abs are really strong, making it take longer to show.  We find out at the reveal party on this coming Saturday what this little grandbean is going to be! Only hitch is I will likely be on Siesta Key when the baby arrives.  I’m praying he/she shows up before Nana leaves on her vacation, or waits until I return.

🙂  I won’t have a super model style bikini body come vacation, but it will be much better than it is now.  Loving going to the gym, even at the ungodly hour of 7am.  I FEEL better now that I’m consistently working out, and I have so much more energy.

 WINE WHINE

😦  I hate winter.  I hate cold, snow, wind, all of it.  I hate wearing a coat, heavier clothes and the shorter day light hours.  Pretty much if it is part of winter, other than Christmas, I HATE IT.

😦  I had lofty aspirations of getting the year off to a running start.  It is 1/7 and not so running.  Who am I kidding, not even moving!  But that is being adjusted, read on in the cheese section.

😦  The Florida house hunting/vacation trip has been pushed back to June, but that too has a cheese side to it.

 

CHEESE

🙂  I did something rather radical today.  Okay radical for me anyway.  I joined a gym/fitness center.  I know, sit down and breathe slowly, I’m shocked too.  But I am sick of my weight, and I want to be bikini ready come the Florida trip so the only way to ensure this was likely was to join.  See, it is too dang cold to walk outside and I figure if I am going to pay for it then I will go.  So, I’m meeting the trainer tomorrow to get a program in place for me to bust my ass into shape.

🙂  Yes, Florida got moved to June due to The Badge’s work schedule but that is okay.  I just have one more month now to reach the weight that it says on my driver’s license and get toned up so I can rock that string bikini.  Not to mention the several pairs of jeans in my dresser that I want to be able to wear.

🙂  I even found sweat pants at the thrift store, for only $1 a pair!  I am not there to be seen, so I don’t care if Kim Kardashian wouldn’t be caught dead in them.  I hope NOT to be seen as that is my early morning, no makeup, leave me the hell alone time.  It’s get into shape so that by late Spring I can rock the shorts instead.

🙂  I’m currently rocking the Highlander Grogg Coffee and my jammies at 7pm.  I am also about to go curl up with a good book!

🙂  All this talk of fitness and I’m debating joining the running group at church to train for The Flying Pig.  Even if I do NOT run it, I’ll be that much more fit! Not mention the fun of making new, like minded friends!

 WINE WHINE

😦  I decided that a flu shot was in order, since it is moving through everyone I know it seems.  My arm hurts!  I rubbed it like they say to do but dang it still painful.

😦  Read, after the fact, that this year’s flu vaccine is only about 50% effective, as they guessed wrong about the strains that would be going around and missed the most prevalent one.  Oh well, 50% is better than none at all.

😦  My favorite pair of jeans are falling apart.  I bought them already slightly loved at the thrift store near by.  It’s my favorite way to buy jeans, already soft and broken in.  But this pair is starting to rip apart and are so well worn that it is going to be time to get new ones.

CHEESE

🙂  The scale is moving D-O-W-N again!  I have a serious goal so that helps.  And I’m taking intentional actions to achieve my goal, like logging every bite that enters my mouth, every ounce of water, every minute of activity and walking distance.  I refuse to give up.

🙂  It’s pretty awesome when you hit the end of your day, and have been so careful to eat right that you have to have a beer in order to hit your minimum calorie range on your SparkPeople account!  That is just breaking my heart!

🙂  I got my roots done and sporting pink in my bangs again this week.  Was purple last time for The Badge as that is his favorite color. So glad I went back to blond.

I thought of my daughter-in-law when I saw this, and so my daughter.

Wednesday Wine Musings – Change

camille-23-oz_-red-wine-glassI usually write a Wine & Cheese post on Wednesday, but today it is all about the wine.  No, not the ‘whine’ where I complain, but rather the wine that is currently in my Olivia Pope style wine glass sitting on the desk next to my laptop.  It’s about the wine, Zen Garden on Pandora, peppermint essential oil in the diffuser and writing.  These books are not writing themselves.  But the blog has been lacking and I had committed to writing daily for NaBloPoMo, which as usual my great intentions were hijacked by life.  Oh well.

About 2 weeks after I dyed my hair auburn, I regretted it again.  I know my kids think I look  younger with it but I missed my blond.  It is very hard when having a crazy moment to put a streak of fun color in auburn hair.  When it grew in at all the roots of my natural blond hair looked gray and would tend to make my hair look as if it was thinning because of the contrast.  Then someone else tossed their .02 cents on the topic (okay, more like several someones) and I started saving to go back to blond.  Yesterday my stylist came over and did some serious, professional bleaching and about 90 minutes later I was back to being bleach blond.  I found a super cute, edgy style too so she cut it for me.  Today I stopped in her salon and had the eyebrows waxed and she did the layer just beneath my bangs in a really deep, fuscia pink.  It rocks.  Gone are the spikes on the back of my head, gone is the coppery color.  Gone are the eyebrows that were out of control.  Mine are not super fuzzy or thick, I just cannot stand to pluck them.  My eyes tear up and I cannot see, it’s a royal pain in the tail, so I go get them waxed. Yes that hurts but it’s over with quickly.

I am still going through an adjustment without my little side kick.  I opened the front door when my daughter stopped by the other day and we were both tearing up a bit because Penny was missing.  She always ran to the door when my daughter came over and wagged her little stump of a tail so hard her whole body got in on the act.  This time there was no sweet little pooch to greet her.  Yesterday I opened it to go get the mail, and turned to stop Penny and tell her to be quiet before I realized she wasn’t going to come running through the house, barking like crazy.  She felt it was her sole responsibility to protect me.  I cried to the mailbox and back.  Today I went and picked up her ashes from the vet, and honestly I got just a tad angry.  The good morning nose licks, the trying to protect me, playing with her on the floor and walking her all exchanged for a little tin with a plastic bag containing barely a handful of ash just is a pretty shitty swap out.

My nails are back, and while that thrills me to pieces it is annoying too.  I have a lot of rings, I love them, and unless I have nails I don’t wear them.  Nails make me feel feminine, and is one of the few things I will treat myself too whenever possible.  So while I am very happy to have them, they make typing a real pain.  If I do nails, I do them long. Very long.  Grrrrr.  However, I won’t take them off unless I cannot afford them.  As long as I have money to do them, they will be there with the exception of a week or two in July when I plan to go to New Orleans with our church to help with the continued rebuilding of homes there and cleaning up blighted properties.  I have a feeling that building houses with nails is not wise, so I will have them taken off or cut way down for that, then replace them when I get back.

Because the New Orleans trip is in July, with 100% humidity and a lot of physical work, I’ve started adjusting what I eat and the walking starts up again next week.  And maybe the Insanity work-out DVDs.  I need to get in far better shape physically for this trip if I want to be useful.  And water, drinking tons of water again.

Yesterday I spent some time looking at my Pinterest boards and what a mess.  I combined several boards, got them back in alphabetical order so my OCD tendencies stayed in sync, and now I’m going through one board at a time deleting anything that makes no sense to be there.  I pin so much that I will never use, need, make etc that it seems ridiculous to have it all.  But that will be an ongoing project.  I also narrowed down my Twitter again and stopped following a bunch of tweeters.  More to come on that one as well, as I just don’t have the time or interest in many.

Okay back to writing the books.  Oh heck who am I kidding, I’ll probably read one rather than write!

 WINE WHINE

😦  It is one dreary week here in the greater Cincinnati area.  Rain, more rain, grey skies, more rain.  It is hard to keep a positive attitude and remain upbeat when all one wants to do is SLEEP.

😦  Sleep is just what I did too, yesterday.  I had given blood earlier in the afternoon and while sitting at my desk working on my book I got SO sleepy.  I thought, “just lay down for a few minutes” and woke up nearly 3 hours later!  I was out so hard I missed my weekly call from my business coach.  😦

😦  My oatmeal is cold.  SIGH…I should have focused on eating it faster I suppose.

 

CHEESE

🙂  I love living here in the Diva Den.  We have, as I have said before, more fun than the law allows.  Last night while getting ready to watch NCIS (which means mom makes popcorn and we all grab a beverage and hit the couches in front of the big screen), my niece came down to find her mom and sang “mama” and I responded, “just killed a man” and off we went through the lyrics to Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen.  Each of us would sing a line and some together.  We live in a musical sometimes and it’s so fun!

🙂  Saturday evening my brother invited us to come over for Sunday breakfast.  Usually I am a stickler about nothing interfering with church, but family time is so rare and important to me that I decided to go.  I am SO glad I did!  My 9yo nieces (3 of them) had set the table (my sister-in-law is teaching them all about where things go on the table, which fork to use etc) and made menus.  They were our servers.  My brother and his wife cooked, and it was awesome!  Omelets and pancakes, sausage, egg sandwiches and blueberry muffins.  We all enjoyed it very much.  Very sweet memories made that day.

🙂  The plus of donating blood the other day was the awesome Bengal’s jersey that they gave every donor.  I love it.  That and the guy who was my phlebotomist did such a great job I didn’t bruise this time, and he got me on the first try.  I have a tendon in both arms that sits snug against the vein they like to use, and my veins like to roll a bit they tell me.  But he was good, and I am very grateful.  I have a blood type that is somewhat rare, only 9% of the population has it, so I get called often.  I don’t mind, it’s the least I can do to give back.

🙂  I am SO excited about an upcoming event I want to do at church, GONOLA!  Our church encourages us to GO as a church and make a difference.  They are doing another trip to New Orleans to help with the ongoing rebuilding there from hurricane Katrina.  Who knew they still have SO many homes to rebuild.  Next summer, in July (yep hottest days of the year there) we will get on a bus, up to 200 of us, and go down and build homes, do VBS with local kids, clean up blighted properties, all in humidity at 100% and extreme heat.  I cannot wait!  We get some down time to see and experience the city.  I cannot wait to start raising my support for this trip, it will be wonderful to go there and get my hands dirty and work hard to help someone else.

😦  My legs and backside are killing me!!!  Way too much walking this week so far, and not on flat ground.  I was up and down streets, steps, driveways…all while dragging my old lady style grocery cart behind me full of Avon brochures. OUCH!

😦  The weather has been a reminder that winter is coming.  Autumn temperatures that make for the need to wear long sleeves or a light jacket have taken over.  I’m not happy about it at all.  No leaves really changing color much yet, though plenty are falling already to help reinforce the fact that summer is over. UGH

😦  Still waiting on my unemployment to finish processing.  Until my Avon business gets going I need the money.  Hurry up and…wait.

CHEESE

🙂  Yes the legs are screaming at me but the scale moved down again!  I know that ache only means that things will tone up and the scale will keep moving on downward and that is a very good thing.

🙂  While I do miss my pup going with me, I have to say I move so much faster without her along for the stroll.  I will just have to walk her each day to make up for it.

🙂  I love my Kindle Unlimited subscription.  I had a bunch of books on my Amazon wish list that I realized were on the Unlimited!!!! SO now I get to read them for free and then ‘return’ them when finished and not spend anymore money.  OH life is so good!

🙂  Tonight I am enjoying the Soundscapes music channel and burning the Cucumber & Mint candle from Jewelry In Candles.  It is so relaxing!

 WINE WHINE

😦  Finding myself unemployed just sucked.  Yes, I was pissed.  Yes, I did let them know how I felt about it.  Yes, it is water under the bridge today.

😦  I was all set to dive into my business yesterday, but my body had other plans.  I woke up all night after going to bed Monday, puking my brains out.  I am pretty sure that based on how sore I am, my body was trying to expel my toes inside out by way of my mouth.  Thankfully, living here with the other Divas who happen to be nurses, they had just the thing to stop the unstoppable vomiting and I slept most of the day. UGH.  This “life is all about how you handle plan B” stuff is getting old fast.

😦  My poor dog is so confused.  She thinks every time I go to leave the house now, that it is time to head to work.  She doesn’t understand that we now work from home.  She is no doubt missing all of the attention and treats she got in the office.  Poor baby.  😦

CHEESE

🙂  I am now a full time Avon Lady.  I LOVE it.  I recovered from my virus enough to hit the ground running today and I’m praying my efforts pay off.  I meet my district sales manager for lunch tomorrow and I’m sure I can pick her brain for help.  She rocks and is excited for me that I am able to commit full time now.

🙂  Life IS all about how we handle Plan B and my attitude is great.  I see opportunity now to work for me, and make myself the one who is rich and not someone else.  My commissions are at 40% right now so that is worth my time.  I’m pushing for the 50% margin and for the bigger better team under me.  I’m SO excited.

🙂  My weight has continued to drop.  I haven’t seen the current number on the scale in years.  I’m happy about it and motivated.  Probably the one good thing that came from being sick is my appetite dropped off but that just means I can maintain better control of it now.

Who hasn’t had a day like this, despite folks thinking we look better without makeup?

 WINE WHINE

😦  CINCINNATI:  You can’t get there from anywhere!  Traffic in these parts is akin to a warped nightmare after watching a horror movie, “Night Of The Endless Orange Barrels”.  School buses, construction on every single major highway in the loop around the greater city area, excess numbers of cars as college classes are now back in session.  No matter which direction I go, it’s a mess.  Now toss in those folks who refuse to wear sunglasses so that we can add “sun delay” to the equation and you have the recipe for a really crappy commute.  Good thing I use the time to listen to personal development CDs or I’d be a crazed zombie when I arrived at the office.

😦  I am kicking myself for not working hard enough to be at the Avon National Conference this year.  Seeing the videos and photos on so many other’s pages is killing me.  I could have been there if I would have buckled down much sooner than I finally did.  I WILL be there next year, by earning the entire trip free because I am not screwing around with this anymore.

CHEESE

🙂  Busting butt to get my Avon business where it needs to be.  I’ve shed a bunch of things from my life so that I can achieve what I am capable of having.  This business changes lives.  It has already changed mine, I made President’s Recognition Club – means I get 40% commissions the rest of this year and all of next year.  I make enough to pay my car payment each month.  And I am going to the top.  Let me know if you want to change your life, a few hundred dollars a month is a big deal in many budgets.  I’d love to have you on my team, anywhere in the USA you can do this with me for a small, $15 investment.  Yep just $15 and you get your full kit and website, and you can change your life too.

🙂  Loving being back in ‘school’ again.  Scored 100% on first round of quizzes.   I’m taking 2 classes right now and loving them both.  Learning new things is awesome, I enjoy stretching my brain.

🙂  I know I’ve said it before, but I love my job!  We have such a great team here, and we laugh a lot even though our days can get really hectic and stressful.  It rocks working here even on our worst days.

WINE WHINE

 

😦  Menopause sucks when you have to go out on a job site and the structure is sealed up and no A/C or open windows.  Glad that is not a normal part of my job.

😦  Nothing like being rudely awakened in the middle of the night by the weather radio going off in advance of an approaching severe thunderstorm.  Then finding that your cat is nervously “making biscuits” (kneading) the pillow next to your head, purring in fear.  You know it isn’t going to be good, even though there is no storm just yet, when the animals get freaked out.  Then just as you are drifting back to sleep it goes off yet again, only now there is thunder and a LOT of lightening, wind blowing and reports of hail.  I was not happy and I’m exhausted today.

😦  I am having serious issues with sweet cravings.  This has to stop.  I’m doing so good and do not need to be thinking about junkie calories.

CHEESE

🙂  I am really excited about the second class I am taking, this one for work, which starts tonight.  I LOVE learning new things!

🙂  The other class is 22 lectures long, for Nouthetic (Biblical) Counseling.  My goal is to be a certified biblical counselor.

🙂  I am a little slow at discovering this, no doubt, but I figured out I could save a bundle on those instant oatmeal breakfasts.  I just use a 1/4 cup of regular, old fashioned oats, a little brown sugar, and the smallest setting on my Keurig!  All goes into a large coffee mug and after a few minutes I have breakfast.  For about the same price as one or two of those prepackaged servings in a cardboard cup I have 40+ servings!

🙂  I achieved President’s Recognition Club with Avon, guaranteeing me 40% earnings the remainder of this year and all of the next calendar year!  I also will be Avon’s guest at the PR Club gala dinner next Spring and receive free gifts from Avon.  My Mrs. Albee award figurine for this year is GORGEOUS!  She is my 3rd one now, and I love it.  I have my sites set on Honor Society by the end of the calendar year, that would be a first for me.

This is just funny to me.  Farting fruit!

WINE

 

😦  My desk at the office looks like a tornado came through in the night.  This is not normal for me, I’m too OCD about order at the office, but lately we have just been so busy and I have too many projects going at once to keep up with the ‘hoarder’ appearance.  I plan to attack it Friday and get things back in order.

😦  The NextRadio app is not available with Verizon.  It uses way less battery and data (no doubt why it isn’t yet supported) and would be huge for me when walking so I could listen to K-LOVE.  Bad form, Verizon Wireless, really bad form!

😦  Nothing says “areyoufreakingkiddingme” like having your nose running, racing to grab a tissue, and you pull back a half inch wide piece because it tore apart. Grrrr….

 

CHEESE

🙂  Isn’t life awesome when there really isn’t much to complain about?  My ‘wine’ list is pretty slim, full of light-weight stuff.  I like it!

🙂  My office may not be in great order but it smells amazing!  My tart warmer is loaded up with Caribbean Teakwood scented wax and it is filling the room with a kick-butt aroma.

🙂  I changed the layout and over all look of my blog.  If you usually read this via email stop by and take a look.

🙂  The weather here has been outstanding!  I prefer to sleep with the windows open, drifting off to sleep to the sounds of crickets, frogs, and other  night creatures.  Inhaling the lavender oil for my sleep aroma therapy is also a huge help.  Menopause isn’t winning the sleep battle, this one is all mine!

🙂  My new planner from Erin Condren came this week and I LOVE IT!!!  Use that link and get $10 off because of my referral.  You can personalize them and they have other awesome stuff too.  It is one of this week’s big high moments!
