has made me stupid. I've been saying this for years but it's never been more evident than this week. I've managed to be late for just about every thing I've had to do except work. I've set the alarm clock numerous times only to have it not go off. Yesterday, I set my cell phone alarm because I KNEW I couldn't screw that up. Guess what? Yeh, it didn't go off either. I've set the house alarm off. You name it, I've done it. Completely ridiculous! Thankfully, Dean will be home today. Who knows what time seeing as how his flight was delayed 3 hours. They didn't leave Anchorage until 2:00 am central time. He's going to be so exhausted.

Friday night we had so much fun at Wendy's birthday dinner. We got Wendy a NKOTB t-shirt. We knew she'd love it & we got a great reaction.
Saturday morning me, Allison & her sis Andrea did our walk/C25K run at the lakes. I started Week 2 which means 90 second runs. It's definitely more difficult but at the same time it feels amazing when you're finished.

Next up was home to get dressed for the movie. My mom & I went & saw The Help. It was so good but of course I liked the book much better. I thought the movie was a little choppy, if that makes any sense. The movie was over 2 hours so of course they couldn't included everything but it just didn't seem as seamless as I expected but still really good. After the movie we went to Borders. The discounts have increased & I was surprised that I was able to find more books. Everything was 40-50% off.

We had a late lunch at Brewbachers which was delicious as usual. Last night was our Fantasy Football Draft. I was able to get a nap in beforehand. That would be when the cell phone alarm didn't go off & it caused me to be late but thankfully, I wasn't the last one to arrive. Wendy wasn't able to make it to the draft so the fate of No Thugs was entirely in my hands. I was nervous but I think it worked out pretty well. Time will tell.



  1. Traci,

    I can't imagine what caused all your alarms to fail at once.... yuck... and for me Ted is the last fail-safe alarm, so if he isn't there, no telling how late I can sleep!

    You're just out of your routine. I totally understand where you've been & I have been there too. Just not the same when our guys are not there with us.

    From the pictures it seems Dean has had a wonderful trip. I know you'll have lots of stories to talk about.

    I saw you got jealous!!

  2. I love my shirt!! No Thugs is going to be awesome this year. And we ain't trading any of those good guys!

  3. LOL. Proud of you for keeping up the running.

  4. Oh my gosh, I have set my house alarm off SO many times. Like the police have come out. It's ridiculous. Haha.

  5. Sounds like you've had a time of it with the alarms!Good luck in the football league...I'm not a fan, but my husband has had a fantasy team for over 30 years!

  6. Hi lovely lady.
    I see you have been running, and your alarms are not working right.
    You need some one to call and tell you to get up. Thanks so much for your lovely comment on my new Tablescape so sweet of you.
    XXOO Diane

  7. Glad to hear that Dean is coming home soon, then maybe your alarm clocks will start working, lol. I hate that. When I have to get up early for something very impt. I always have a hard time going to bed afraid of not waking up on time

  8. Well my friend, you did not go to Walmart today fill up a cart go to the register and find you left your wallet at home. Now that is stupid! Hey we all been there.

  9. I am reading The Help right now. I love it and can't wait to see the movie soon!

  11. I know what you mean! It's amazing how much I'm used to my husband doing something or reminding me! He tells me to set my alarm every night because he knows I always forget! I'd never get up if it wasn't for him!
