Le Sigh

What I wouldn't give to have like...more days off work and school. I spent most of my weekend chilling but I still need some recoup time!

The V-day ritual has been completed in my neck of the woods. I gave and received some awesome things and Pooka even wound up with a few items of her own *can we say brownie points?* So Wednesday and this weekend are gonna be just more days for me.

I got my taxes and like I stated awhile ago...I don't really have any money! :-(. However, I did buy a few want and not need items. While at Target still looking for that media tower/cabinet, I got the urge to pick up a dvd/vcr combo, a webcam, and a fireplace screen. The dvd/vcr combo replaced the one I had that started acting up. It decided it didn't want to play dvd's anymore! I still can't use the webcam because of how my laptop is set up. Like the rest of my computers, this laptop I use is a hand me down. When I got it it came attached to a base. This base is the power source so I can't use the laptop without it. Up until now that has not been a problem. But now that I have this cam I need access to the USB port which is on the laptop and not the base! GRRRRRR I have to get a new battery that people are not making anymore and see if it solves my problem. The screen was just pretty and on clearance for a price I liked :-P

I made me some rice crispy cupcakes this weekend! Not w/a K cuz I used generic crispys :-)They turned out to be cupcakes because I used my sole glass baking pan to bbq some chicken that I got at 29 cent a pound *go me go me go me* LOL So the only thing I had to put them in was a cup tray. They came out good. I was going to put some chocolate kissables on top of them but they magically disappeared before I started melting my marshmallows *whistling* I know Jamaica is 2 blinks away, I brought 90% rabbit food this weekend. The chicken the couldn't fit in the baking pan got boiled and cooked with brown rice! Promise! LOL I mean, I "could" take my crispy cupcakes to work and have them consume the calories...but I ummmm ehhhhh worked so hard on them and think my household should enjoy the spoils of my labor! LOL

My neighbor who was complaining about the parking *I can't recall the name I gave her*asked me if I noticed scratches on my car or van. I didn't know what she was talking about so she gave me a mini tour of her car. To me it looks like someone put something really heavy with a rough bottom on her trunk and just moved it around judging by the pattern. Then it looked like someone took a rock and slid it up and down her window. I don't got no mess like that on my stuff. Either she pissed someone off or someone is being immature and just messing up someones stuff just to do it. If it's the last then they knew better to scratch mine up cuz I wouldn't notice it by the ages of my stuff! LOL Ole girl just recently got a 400 dollar paint job on her newer model car.

Today I am going to try and get my motivation to work at my job back. During my performance review I went down from a very good to a good which is one step backwards. I knew that was the case because my drive has been dwindling by the day there. But I have at least a few more reviews to go before I turn in my letter of resignation so I want to try and make them good ones. I kinda wish good money came with constant good reviews, but it don't :-( Whatever.

when are you planning to resign? (i think you mentioned it b4, but i forgot.)

i haven't had the time or energy to think about V-Day this year. so, Wed. will be another day for me too.

i had the urge to make some rice crispies (i feel you on the store brand; there's no need to pay good $$ for the real stuff) last weekend, but changed my mind. the ingredients weren't on the list and i strive to stick to my list.

my tax $$ will be here soon and i've been trying to think of the 1 want i'll treat myself to. i can't decide btw. a new Ipod or a television.

It's on a Wednesday for pete's sake! *eyeroll*

Rice crispies are yummy. I think you need to put that on your grocery list right now for the next trip! LOL

Get the ipod!

blkbutterfly said...

great minds think alike! i was coming back to edit my post to add that the cereal and marshmallows would be on my next list! LOL!

yeah, i'll probably get the IPod. i can't decide if i want to buy a new one or have my current one repaired. decisions, decisions...

"J" said...

U coulda took a pic of dem goodies u know! Just cause i can't eat em dont mean I can't see em!

I'm still waiting on my eagle to land as well. (my tax refund to arrive) I'm going to save MOST of it but I do want to purchase some Carol's Daughter products. Thats my treat to me!

deepnthought said...

rice crispies....... Tasty. I miss them. well, I wont be celebrating Valentines this year. The choices we make for the folks we care about.

Freaky Deaky said...

A webcam, huh? Can I get the link to the Ladynay gone wild site? Just for research purposes of course.

Rice Krispy treats are yummy. I want to try some made with Berry Krispies and some made with Choconilla Krispies. So did you save any for your favorite and loyal readers or what? I'd hate to have call a boycott.

Have you considered possibly looking for a new dock for your laptop? Possibly one with USB ports? Just a suggestion.

You vandalized the neighbor's car didn't you? You can tell us.

Ladynay said...

BB, it all depends on how much it would cost to fix it. Besides I think you can get an ipod with a small tv in it! Kill 2 birds with one stone!

J, girl if I could have got the webcam together I would have hooked you up! ROFL

I was planning to give CD's website a whirl when my money came, but my loc lady uses another brand. Let me know how it works for you when you try her stuff out.

DNT, don't tell me you allergic to marshmallows? Why can't you have none????? That last sentence confused me. Are you not doing the V-day thing by sacrifing for someone you care about? I am not sure how to interpret your comment :-(

Freaky, of course you can once I figure out what it is! LOL

Yeah I gotta hook my readers up....just not this time. When/if I do the berry krispies the good one in the very middle is yours *wink*

That's a good suggestion, I never thought about it. Thank you.

*eases up slowly to your ear looking around to see whose watching, then whispers*

no, but I got tape of certain freaky dude doing

TTD said...

if i were ur neighbor.. i'd be PISSED!!!! regardless of what she did.. no one has the right to mess up her stuff!

get it together at work! lol

Ladynay said...

TTD, your right but people do strange things when they mad sometimes.

I am doing better than normal today so that's a start! LOL

Freaky Deaky said...

Yay! I get a piece from the middle. [Does a combination snow and happy dance.]

I don't know what you're talking about. That wasn't me.

Oh yeah, don't be all up in my ear playing like that. I won't be held responsible for anything that may result from it.

Ladynay said...

*trickling fingers down the middle of back still whispering*

Responsible for what? What are you talking about? ;-)

Thoughts of a Southern gal said...

Hey NayNay! I'm off next Monday so I can't wait till the weekend!!!

I saw your comment on my page. By definition, I'm a single parent because I'm not married. But J and I are still together.

Ladynay said...

I don't care you get Presidents Day off! Really! You all have your freaking day off! Hmph! ROFL

Girl I was mad confused for a second! LOL I guess your right in a way, if your not married, your single *shrug*

Honey-Libra said...

Emm cupcakes..I want some...I might make some brownies...I'm sighing right now cause usually I stop by in the morning but I've been so bogged down with work I haven't by and now my brain can't focus on anything but going home LOL...


TrinaBeingTrina said...

You have just inspired me to bake a cake. It's nothing like having home made goodies in the house, so you can nibble at your leisure.

I need to do my taxes so I can go buy some stuff that I want instead of what I need.

My daughter is my Valentine. I already have her gift in the trunk of the car and I'm going to take her to the movies. That's if the weather isn't terrible.

Ladynay said...

Awwwww Honey don't let them work you to death now!

Trina, after these goodies are all used up, there isn't gonna be any more up in here for awhile! At least none brought/made by me!

I was thinking about taking my kid to the movies too! I got free movie tickets to use Mon-Thurs so it would be a great thing to do tomorrow! It just depends on how I feel.

Pamalicious said...

Wow you done with Valentines already? Alright nah!

I so love when chicken is on sale. If only CAUN liked Gravy, I could make me some smothered chicken :(

I get mine back this Friday and it's paying for our honeymoon cruise and I think I'll do a little clothes shopping. So I'm excited.

I guess, like you - I'll try to get in the job mood, lol so far it's not working, lol

Have a good day!

Ladynay said...

Caun don't do gravy!!!! Man! He missing out! LOL

Get it together girl!

deepnthought said...

the sugar and the butter and marshmellows make them no nos for me. Yep, "him" doesnt celebrate.

Ladynay said...

:-( That sucks!!!!
