A Dr. Pepper Kind of Day

Thank goodness the week is almost over. It's been a hard, long week. I've been really burnt out on work lately. I'm ready for a vacation & that's really pathetic because we've only been home from vacation for 2 months. Tomorrow, I'm only working until 12:30 so I'll be able to start the weekend early. Dean is off all day. That's part of my problem. Dean has Friday's off every few weeks & he gets 5 weeks of vacation & I only get 3. That means lots of days getting up & going to work while Dean gets to stay in bed. It's a real bummer. I know I'm very lucky to have my job I just wish I didn't need it. I'm so ready for retirement!! We have even started going in with the neighbors & buying Powerball tickets in hopes of splitting the winnings. This is the really ridiculous part, we only buy tickets when the winnings are in the $90 million & up range. You know $40 or $50 million wouldn't do at all!

Today was a rough day. One of those days that I had multiple Dr. Peppers. Like 4. I know it's awful but I forgot to make tea last night & I didn't feel like doing it this morning. God forbid I actually drink water!!!

This weekend is going to be busy but it should be fun. I'm going to the St. Patrick's Day parade Saturday, there are LSU ballgames all weekend & at some point I want to see Logan. He's walking now & I know he wants to show off for his Tante!! Our friend/cousin by marriage is coming over with baby Sam to visit too. I can't wait to see them either. It's been awhile since I've seen Sam. I'm sure she has new tricks too! I should have lots of cute pics to post by the end of the weekend!!

I just saw a commercial for shrimp taco's at Taco Bell. Now I love Taco Bell as much as the next person but shrimp, really? I could never bring myself to order shrimp at Taco Bell. It's just not happening.

It's time for Grey's. I hope it's good tonight. I've been a bit disappointed the last couple of weeks.

Toodles for now.


  1. OMG, that is eerie. I just saw that commercial a few min ago and was like to the hubs...oh yeah, that's what I'm getting from the Bell...shrimp. ah ha ha

  2. Dr. Pepper – HA HA -- It was a daiquiri kind of a day for me yesterday.

    Yea, shrimp at Taco HELL... I mean Taco Bell -- NO THANKS!

  3. I know this is going to make me sound weird, but I think I'm going to try the shrimp tacos. Several people on my weight watchers message boards have said they're good so I might give it a shot.

  4. Well, I hate to say this, but I too may have to try those. Only because I'm so limited at taco bell with the gestational diabetes. I've had so many taco salads and they are not, how shall we say, agreeable with me. I still haven't gotten my shamrock shake and I'm running out of time.
