Just your (un)average girl

Just a girl enjoying what life has to offer. I love to cook and laugh. I live this life along side a wonderful man and an amazing and crazy family. Life is just crazy and I am strapped in and ready to enjoy!

This is how i recap

Things have been well. 

I bought a new car on “a whim” and I love it oh so muchimage


and the inside looks like this (and i took this pic before ever putting an offer on it- it would be mine. oh yes,..)image

AND TONIGHT… for one night and one night only.. after 30+ years on this planet.. I.. Am.. Going.. To.. See.. THE DIVA HERSELF (with my momma)

If tomorrow, women woke up and decided they really liked their bodies, just think how many industries would go out of business.

Someday, someone is going to look at you with a light in their eyes you’ve never seen, they’ll look at you like you’re everything they’ve been looking for their entire lives. Wait for it.

I get into the office around 0700 in the morning and on Monday before 0830 my coworker was in and said that there was some medical emergency considering the paramedics were in the office. We work in a relatively large office where i know about 10% of the people. 

Well come to find out there was a woman that had a massive seizure in the bathroom that morning… I don’t know the details and it doesn’t really matter.

This afternoon.. the president sent an email that this woman passed away yesterday.

She was maybe in her 50s..?

Talk about being here one moment and not the next. She just was coming to work on Monday morning like the rest of us..and now we are planning a memorial. 

It saddens me, but it makes me re-evaluate things in my own life. Death scares me more than anything and even with its inevitability it still surrounds my thoughts.

Today i chose to love a little more, hugs a little tighter and laugh a hell of a lot harder.



Gosh, there has been a lot of bad things in the news recently. 

I guess sometimes i just notice it more than others. 

"The day care hit and run" that is all over the place is right down from my house… like 30 seconds from where i used to work. 

Just so sad and awful and i feel horrible for the person that their car was hit and they were forced into running over children. I don’t think i could come back from that, honestly. 

I know there is good things out there but just sad all the news that is happening around us too. 

In other “new” I really like this other department at work. Shadowed again yesterday and i want in, but no openings right now. I think hiring freeze until June.  I can wait. I ain’t skured. 

I am really looking forward to the weekend even though I have nothing planned. My dog went to the vet yesterday and i came home with $250 less to my name, so not really thinking i am going too crazy this weekend. 

I told my sister (and mom bc she was with my sister) that I think i would like an elliptical (used even) for my birthday. 

Gotta get back in the game and the schedule isn’t allowing me to go to the gym, so… I will put one in my living room.  

God, please help me to use this and not turn it into a clothing rack.

So the thing is… i never/ haven’t applied for the bakery job.. yet.  I don’t know why. Maybe i am just pushing it off because i do not think i will get the offer. Or maybe i will get the offer and have to turn it down bc it wouldn’t pay enough. 

In other news, i did shadow a job position at work and another one tomorrow- to see if i like what they do if a position ever opened up.  And I did! I liked it a lot and think i would be a good fit for that area.

 So there is that flip side. 

Listen, i know i am in FL and everyone else had a crap- tastic winter, but the mornings and humidity are already getting unbearable here, so i am not looking forward to this summer. I mean, it was 75 and HUMID at 0630 this morning and it is just April.  The.beginning.of.April. 

Did I mention i have no AC in my Jeep either right now, working to rectify that situation ASAP.
