10 Random Things for Friday


  1. I've got to say - I'm really struggling with a list of goals for 2019. I started the post like a week ago, but I deleted so many that have gone from year to year, and I don't have much I want to add. Life seems like something I just need to get through, lately.
  2. But my reading is wayyy up! Escape, anyone? LOL I've finished six books so far in 2019. May have to make my goal a bit higher than I initially did on that. Or be prepared to excel, at this rate.
  3. So, I ran out of gas for like the second time in my life today. Maybe the third? But the time in question was during a car accident, so maybe that's where the gas went? Who knows. Today, I was on my way to the gas station straight from work, because it's payday! And I almost made it. But almost doesn't make the car any lighter. Thanks to my knight-in-shining-armor, hubs. Otherwise I'd have taken a bit of a walk in the bitter cold. With no one to thank but my own darn self.
  4. The kids have a half day of school today! So once the younger one gets home, we're headed to Patty Burger for some lunch. Yay!
  5. Adjusting our Amazon cart now (remember, payday!). Maggie is planning on a new phone (once hubs gets his new one for work), Jack needs new tennis shoes, and I have yet to get a second pair of work khakis (that I've been meaning to get for the whole year I've been working...). 
  6. My poinsettias still seem to be kicking. I've been watering them weekly or so. But now what? Hmm...
  7. I'm ready to call the season all done and take down the holiday cards. I have so many holiday cards stored away. I don't think I've ever been able to pitch them. So they keep taking up more and more room. LOL
  8. I still need to get a frame for our family picture that we did along with making our holiday cards. I should go verify what size that is while I'm still putting together this Amazon order...
  9. I just realized I've been home for about an hour, but haven't taken my coat off yet. I sure am tired of being cold. It's sort of a regular state of being for me in winter.
  10. Big plans for this weekend? Hubby and the kids want to go skiing up north. I was hoping to clean up some more of the house and catch up on some laundry. And read, of course. But I'll probably end up going with the flow. Which means sitting somewhere and reading, because I don't ski.

Kudos on six books! Wow. I have maybe read one? I am reading Puddin' right now (companion novel to Dumplin') and liking it a lot.

I've actually never run out of gas but I always fill it up when it gets to be like 1/4 to 1/2 full. lol.

Amazon is dangerous ... there are these honey butter chips I like and they have them, like $8 for three bags. I ordered more yesterday as I finished the last bag, lol ...

Skiing always seems like a fun activity but I've never done it. Would like to maybe go on a family trip somewhere that includes us all getting ski lessons someday. Hope everyone had a fun time on their up north ski excursion!
