First Day of School

Hey, just because my kids are grown does not mean I don't have pictures. Check out my grandsons on their first day of school.

And today (8/29) he is 6 years old.

Rocking out at work....

Since we went to an “open concept office” a year and a half ago, sometimes the noise level in our office is almost unbearable. For me, anyway. Since I am working on contract and legal documents most of the day every day, I really need to focus. My boss is not very tolerant of errors, even though he realizes it is hard to focus in our environment. (He complains about it, too.)

So, I often plug in earbuds and listen to music. I have never done this in any previous job or office as I think it is very unprofessional. But, it is necessary now. I have got to focus.Several years ago, Hubby made me some “mix tapes” on CD. Awwwwww….isn’t he sweet?! So, many of them have my favorite genre….wait for it……..disco. I heard the collective moan and I don’t care a bit. I love disco and have loved it since I discovered it in college. Disco music just does wonders for me whenever I hear it. 

So, when the noise gets off-the-charts loud, as it does several times a day, I plug in my earbuds and crank up the volume.

I thought I would share one of my favorite songs with you. It is impossible not to move to this song and I can listen to it over and over. Enjoy!
Yeah, baby! It's raining men. Halellujah!

And it doesn't hurt that in my mind, Channing Tatum is taking his clothes off!

Yes, I came back....

Did you all think I got lost in the boonies? I wish! I had a fabulous and relaxing vacation and wish I could have stayed forever. Well, I would have had to fly Hubby there, since he was still at home.

But alas, a girl's gotta eat.....and I came back home and back to my job. And I was SLAMMED this week. I really hate the week after vacation. Not only was I trying to catch up on all the work that apparently can only be done by me... Yes, I am that special.... but everyone seemed to have emergencies that had to be taken care of RIGHT THIS MINUTE.  I was beat every evening. Thank God I don't have to come home and cook and clean. I love my hubby!

I had a great time while on vacation, so even though the week was long and work filled, I am still stress free. So, my vacation was a success!

Here are a few pics:
My 4-year-old great niece, Navi Lynn. She is angelic as she looks....sometimes.
 Her mama, my niece, Jessica. She is exactly as devilish as she looks.
 One of the views from my parents' back deck. Could it be any more gorgeous?
I didn't take a ton of pics as all of the rest of us look the same. But I did have an amazingly wonderful time.

Oh, yeah.....I'm on vacation....

I totally forgot to tell you all that I am on vacation this week. I was so buried at work that I get home just exhausted. I have barely even checked blogs this week. Sorry, I am so behind. I will catch up over the next week when I get a chance.

I am in beautiful rural Tennessee with my first family. Yesterday, I flew in to Nashville, where my sister and her fiance picked me up. First I have to let you know that my virtue is still intact. The TSA agents barely looked at me and said, "You're okay." and waved me on. LOL! I must look safe. Thank God they didn't check my bra for that oozie I was carrying. I'm kidding...I'm kidding. I don't even know if I spelled oozie right. LOL!

We stopped and ate, so got back to my sister's house way in then boonies at around 6 and Sis asked me if I wanted to go to "the auction". There is an auction house not to far from where she lives that has auctions every Friday and Saturday night. They go regularly and I said why not, so off we went.

There was a huge variety of stuff auctioned off, some for great prices, some we thought were not so great. Sis and bf got a few items, but nothing really excited me until the FOOD was auctioned at the end of the night. I am telling you, if I had been near home, I would have filled my freezer. Sis didn't load up like I would have. Of course, she is close to the auction and apparently they have these types of items regularly. She got 2 lb bags of shredded cheeze for $4, sliced Black Forest Ham for $1.50/lb, bacon for $2.50/lb. There were a lot of other good deals, I would have jumped all over and loaded up my freezer. LOL!

I am looking for an auction when I get home.

This morning, I am waiting for my meds to kick in. I am fighting off a sinus infection and woke  up with a bugger of a headache. If I can get rid of it in time, I will go to church with Sis. If I still have it, I may hang out here while they go. Then later, we will head to Mom and Dad's. Can't wait to see them!

I'll check in when I can and will try to get some pics. Have a great week!
