The recycle method ♻️

At my age you’d think I’d have someone to call my own, my love, or whatever you decide to call your spouse. My mate just hasn’t been found yet, well I like to think I have met him but for some reason we just didn’t work out at that time.

It’s really funny to me that I even have the courage to talk about this because it is silly and weird and a little crazy.

I tend to date guys I’ve already dated or have been friends with for a long time. I call it my recycle method. And usually it works for a while until I get reminded why we didn’t work out in the first place. So your probably wondering like many of my friends do why don’t you go find someone new!?

Well I don’t have a answer to that question. I don’t have a hard time meeting someone new, I do lose interest quick or I find myself wondering to many negatives about the guy I just walk away and leave him alone. Most of the time I don’t hive the guy enough time to make a big enough impression on me. Recently out of the blue with in days of each other I had 3 ex’s reach out to me one was just saying hello (he’s married) and the other two are wanting to try it again. Both of the relationships were not long around 6 months one is local and one is long distance. I’ll admit it’s nice to be thought of, brings my self esteem up a little. But I don’t know what’s wrong with me lol. I like the attention and I don’t want to lead either on because I wouldn’t mind being in a relationship with one of them I’m just having super commitment issues. What can I do!? I’ll sleep on it and write some more later lol.

What a day!!!

WOW!!! Today was amazing! And let me start by saying it has been so long that I actually went out and did something FUN!

This is my first weekend in forever that I didn’t have to work. My plans were to deep clean the house , thank God for my friend she called up and said her daughter wanted to go to the aquarium for her Birthday. I said why not I’m not doing anything else lol. So I packed up my daughter and away we went.

First let me tell you these girls have never met before so we were both a bit nervous for them to meet. They took us by suppose! They instantly hit it off and they want to be BFF’s!

That’s actually such a good feeling because my daughter doesn’t have a lot of friends outside of school. I know that sounds weird but she doesn’t like to hang out with them unless they are at school.

Well…. anyways we went to the aquarium and then had dinner at Long Horn Steakhouse. At the aquarium we saw some beautiful jellyfish,sharks and colorful fish. The tiger wasn’t out that was a bummer but okay. Oh and the girls fed the sting rays and got their faces painted.

I am so full of food, Love and laughter I really needed today and can’t thank my friend enough. Now it’s time to my down and relax.

I’m attaching some photos of our time at the aquarium.

Day off!!!!

So for the past few months I have worked 10 hour days basically 7 days a week and that definitely is NOT working smarter instead of harder. So I decided to take a day off my daughter went to school so I had a good 6 hours to myself. I had plans on cleaning up (spring cleaning) shopping and starting a nice dinner for the kids.

The plans well 50% got done the other half I found myself doing nothing absolutely nothing just sitting on my couch with a snack and the T.V. on. A few times I said to myself get up go do something, but my laziness prevailed lol. I watched shows like Maury and Judge Judy shows I’d never normally watch but they had my attention yesterday.

Soon it was 3:30 and my daughter came home, so mommy mode turned back on. I made her a snack and started dinner.

To be honest I don’t know how I feel about taking the day off. I feel like it was something needed and had to be done to save my sanity. I should have gotten a lot of things done but of course my body had other plans. Maybe I needed to just do almost nothing for a whole day.

Next time hopefully I’ll have more than one day off and I can feel like a productive person, what’s better though taking a day off during the week or the weekend? Hmmmm….

My 1st Ipsy bag!

So I am certainly low maintenance when it comes to getting ready normally I put some mascara on, some lip gloss and brush my hair.

My friends talked me into getting an Ipsy bag because I can customize it to what I enjoy as far as beauty regiments.

So yesterday I received my first bag. I never even heard of these brands but they must be good.

So first up I am trying Bio Republic: Aloe Rescue face mask. I chose this one today since I did just go tanning and it is recommended for after sun. I’m pretty sure I didn’t put it on the right way I had some issues un-folding it I’m sure it’s my fault. It felt nice and cool the whole time I had it on and after 15 min I took it off and rubbed the rest in it left my face feeling softer and refreshed.

Next up Ciate:Fierce Flicks eyeliner. I love the fact that it is like a pen to apply easily. It’s black and goes on smooth.

After that I used Doucce: Punk Volumizer Mascara. It’s color is black as well and seems to be a winner with my eyelashes.

Last but not least I used the Hello Neon: Velvet Liquid lipstick color DF. Nice and smooth and doesn’t cake on I love that nice color for my complexion I think.

So far this Ipsy bag is a winner I can wait to see next months .

I’m including pictures of before during and after please be nice lol.

Denver Weather, Tanning and Work

It’s a cold one out there Denver! Roads are slick and it sure doesn’t look like it is going to get any warmer. Since the schools are closed for Martin Luther King Jr. day the young one is sleeping and my oldest is playing video games like usual.

I forgot to turn the heat on.(until 5 min ago) So I write this from the bed in my covers where I do not want to leave anytime soon….

Since I am the adult and I do have work I must get up and out of this comfy bed. I think I will stop and tan, you  know to warm my soul so I can take on this cold weather, stop at Safeway and get some food for the day and then head on into work. Since I have demoted myself I don’t have to go in so early I do like that, then again I am supposed to show my replacement how to do the basic functions of my job :/. I guess I will go in a little early nothing like working 10-12 hour days after you demote your self…it’s okay I guess overtime is appreciated these days..but I must find a way to not work so much! That is the whole purpose of this right?

It is currently 19 degrees out so cold it is there isn’t any snow as of yet so I wonder if it will come high of 24 that seems about right, I guess I shouldn’t be complaining we have had a pretty warm winter and I do live in Colorado. Make sure to bundle up and stay warm my friends!

**UPDATE**(15 min later)

It’s not lightly snowing and everything on my car is frozen 😢be careful out there!!

Couponing woes

Good ol’ coupons. Where would I be with out them? Well for one I would probably be doing something more constructive with my time (probably not).

I actually love the game of couponing the thing that bothers me is I never save what I think I should be lol.

Every Sunday morning I get up go outside to see my paper was not delivered once again but there is one at the house next door, no one has lived there for almost a year and all the sudden they get papers?

It’s like a part time job really. Thank goodness for the papers coupon line up every Tuesday or Is fail miserably at this job.

I really do refuse to pay for anything full price. It’s hard doing it but it is so worth it. I enjoy getting discounts and saving and then most places I shop I have a rewards card with and I get a reward here and there depending on how much I spend in a month, week or day.

I really don’t like those couponing extremely shows, it’s not realistic and it is annoying to know they got to break the rules for coupons and get a buttload if stuff for free basically and I can’t do the same.

I have actually slacked the last few months and my pantry and linen closet are looking very empty. I have been working 60 hour weeks as of late and I just don’t have the energy to look clip and shop. I do still use the savings app provided from my grocery store so I am still saving just not as much as I’d like.

What can I do? How can I get myself to balance my hobby and work? Time will only tell. If your reading this and you have some ideas throw them at me PLEASE!
