Christmas is coming. And coming way faster than I'm ready for. The tree is up and decorated though (that was Saturday), the house is done (Sunday), the outside was done last Monday when it was 55 degrees. Of course all the boxes are still in the bedroom, going to put them away tomorrow and perhaps get the rest of the house more in order (Mr. KA and I are off tomorrow). The gingerbread house is done, LM#2 has been bugging me all week to do it and he was so excited when I said it would be today. It's cute, very overloaded with candy, but they did it all.

We are also doing the Elf so finding new places to put him is already hard. Last year I did a set up where the Elf was held captive by the bad guy figures we have, but then LM#1 called me on it, said I set it up. :( So that's too much. The Elf needs to just sit or something only a little 'staged'.

I have shopping to do, Christmas cards to design, pictures to download. :P I love Christmas but sometimes it just overwhelms me.

This year at my job has been... rough. So many ups and downs. Work things )

Here I go again, trying to make sure and update here.

First some quick opinions about some TV shows.

Hawaii 5-0: S5, E1 - A'ohe Kahi e Pe'e Ai )

Supernatural: S10, E1 - Black )

The Flash: S1, E1 - City of Heroes )

I have tried the comedies of blackish, Selfie and A to Z and each have something different but the funniest one was Selfie - sure it was ridiculous but the actors embraced it and it was fantastic. I'm interested to see how it goes forward. blackish thought the second one was better than the first so I'll tune back in. A to Z was eh, it has to wow me with the second episode otherwise I'm done.

I am still watching NCIS however I may stop and leave poor Mr KA to watch on his own. I just, the dialog is so bad, and the plots are ridiculous and... I just don't think I want to spend 45 minutes of my evening like that anymore. I'll see after this episode. I will miss the characters, but now the world they live in (I think the last straw is the plot device they used in the second episode involving Dir. Vance. I couldn't stand it, it was so manipulative, grrrr.

work stuff )

We were supposed to go apple picking tomorrow after LM#1 was finished school but sadly it's going to rain. So that needs to be delayed. I have off tomorrow, which is awesome, and I will be painting vertical stripes into my son's room. LM#2 has been wanting his room repainted so I allowed him to pick the colors (a bright blue, a red delicious red and a dark dark purple) The bright blue stripes will be on the red wall, sadly I wanted the purple on the red, though it would be subtle/cool look. After the painting is done I will order his new furniture, hopefully the one I picked out will fit in his room. There won't be a ton of floor space, however the furniture is being purchased with the thought of him taking it with him when he leaves. LM#1 has a queen bed, but LM#2's room is too small for that so he is getting a double.

One thing I am doing for myself tomorrow is getting a pedicure. I need one. Badly. It will be the last one for while as it's now winter and I won't be in sandals.
kimannebb: (Avengers_SteveTony B&W)
I think I have them. I think it's just so much going on. I have work which is overwhelming, the snow/ice, kid's soccer, projects. It just seems to mount on top of one another.

I did a bunch of research for summer camp for LM#1. This is the first year he will need it and I looked at a Y and at a private camp facility. The private camp, which is in my town and close by, is cheaper by a couple of hundred. And it goes all summer, unlike the Y which ends several weeks before September.

I also did some research regarding swim lessons. Neither kid knows how to swim, even though LM#1 has had three sets of lessons. But I need him to swim before camp because if he can't he sits, and I don't want that for him. And he's so close, I think he could do it if he has more confidence in himself. So there are swim lessons at the Y or the local high school. Neither are cheap, however the Y is stating that if we join as a family we get 8 weeks worth of swim lessons free. I'm kind of leaning toward the Y. I can go and do classes, we can use the pool whenever and the kids can attend specials there.

All of this has been given to Mr. KA and I'm waiting for him to review. It's a bit ridiculous. I spend my time putting it together and he goes over a week without looking at it. I'm trying not to get too annoyed as this is the man that arranged it so I slept until 9:50 on Saturday and didn't return with the kids until 12:30. But geez, just read it!!!

I bought a package of 10 frames varying in sizes before Christmas and I took the time this weekend to take down the old frames and put up the new ones. Right now it looks silly because the frames are empty, but I think I really like it.

I spent last night on Shutterfly ordering pictures so all frames could be updated. I also sent pictures of the boys out to friends and family from December and January. So I'm on top of that.

Yet there is still a laundry basket of towels sitting, mocking me, in the loving room that needs to be folded. *sigh* (and to add to the mocking, they are actually from last week, not this past weekend)

The diet is going ok, have not been as faithful as I should be, but it's still progressing in the right direction. So I need to focus on that.

Olympics Have not been watching but recorded a bunch because LM#1 was interested. So I have showed him some speed skating, wasn't impressed; cross country skiing, not fast enough for him (although he got interested when he saw they shot something) and icing skating, which he seemed catptivated by. When one skater did a really tight, fast turn (to end the routine), he was all 'wow'. It was cute. He's looking forward to snowboarding, which I should be able to show him tonight.

Work Well this is just busy. I should be working through my lunch but I don't feel like it. I have so much to do and just not enough time, nor the staff. Which, considering I have more people here than normal shouldn't be a problem, but they are new. I have testing to set up and complete by Friday. I haven't even started it yet. Ugh.

Blacklist: S1, E13 - The Cypress Agency )

And the second episode of Sherlock, The Sign of Three? Freaking hilarious!! I love it. I will need to catch this again and again for sure. *g*

The new diet that I'm doing is two shakes a day, a 400-600 calorie meal, and one cleanse day. A friend introduced me to it and I have seen her results and I want that. So. Today was the first cleanse day where I eat nothing. I have lots of water and I mis a lot of the water with supplements from the company, there are these green tea chocolates that are good and pretty vial chocolate wafer things. But I made it through the day. It wasn't as hard as I thought, but I did get really hungry at times. (That shake tomorrow morning is going to be divine.) Going forward I will do a cleanse day at work. The reason is I had to make lunch and dinner and that was difficult as I kept wanting to put food in my mouth.

Tomorrow is the Super Bowl and LM#1 asked about watching it, so we are going to start watching some of it with the kids, I'm interested to see how long they last. :)

So there's more snow today. And surprise the weather forecasters did not get the timing or measurements right. Most of the week I heard the snow would be arriving between 9-12 and be 1-2 inches. It arrived about 10 but then continued to snow until after 4 and I think there is 3 inches out there. I will try and be thankful they have been right about when we are getting snow and I will have to accept that. Due to the snow we did not take the kids bowling, we were going to do that today, but felt it wise not to bother to go out.

Tomorrow I will go food shopping after Church and maybe we will go tomorrow afternoon. With the kid's help I put away all the "winter" decorations and put out Valentine's Day. The kids decorated the front living room windows with clings and rubber clings. Very heart filled and festive. We then made a single batch of chocolate chip cookies. As I was doing it the batter was liquify after the eggs went in. I had trouble getting everything to "mix" together. It was weird. Now the brown sugar was harder than normal, and the white sugar was clumpy at first, but I got through that. I finally got the batter to mix and then I added the flour, which was mostly white flour but about a quarter cup of wheat pastry flour because I ran out of white and everything was already in the bowl.

The batter was "grainy" but tasted ok. The kids helped spoon it onto the cookie sheets and I baked them almost a sheet at a time. They are the best "looking" cookies I've made in a long long time. They tasted pretty good too. Weird right?

Tomorrow I start a diet, one based on shakes and cleanses. A friend has found success and encouraged me to give it a go. It's a bit expensive but if I'm able to start losing weight, it will be worth it. So, wish me luck to find the strength to follow the routine and finding time to exercise.

Masters of Sex was good as well. It's interesting to see characters in the late 1950's (I think that's when it is) and see that there are house wives, prostitutes, brothels and "loose" women. For the longest time I had a certain picture in my head about the past decades where everyone was married and didn't sleep around. However I was wrong. :PPP But the show has an interesting premise and the acting is good.

I am behind so I will be watching Agents of Shield tonight.

I'm so bummed that all my friends are seeing or have seen Iron Man 3, even my parents are going tomorrow. WTH? But it has to be next Saturday as that is "date" night with the hubby as my kids are staying over my brother's house for the first time. I talked with him yesterday and he told me his softball's beef and beer is that day, but since he's already rescheduled with me twice, he didn't want to do it again. He even asked my parents to watch the kids for a couple of hours but they are going to the shore. And I'm mean, selfish, don't know, enough that I'm not offering to switch the day. If we did it would be over a month before we could do it again and I want the damn day/night! *g*

Been watching Benedict Cumberbatch on various talk shows etc... they really have no idea how to style his hair that long do they? A shame, he looks awesome with it curly, not so much with it slicked back. And did you know his "fans" call themself the Cumberbitches? Had no idea. Or that Chris Pine's fans are Pinenuts? (Yes I may have watch the Graham Norton show) I don't think I'll get to see Stak Trek: Into Darkness in the theater. (Ohgod, I just typed Stark Trek instead of Star Trek, wow, where the hell is my mind? I fixed it)

Merlin: eps before the start again tonight )

Mr KA is away for the night, he and his friends from high school went to the casino to celebrate they have all turned or will turn 40. Just me and boys. :) It's going to be good although the hardest thing will be getting up tomorrow at 6:15 or 6:30, whenever they get up. I normally get to stay in bed until 8:00 as Mr KA gets up with the kids on the weekend. So I need to concentrate on the fact that 6:30 is way later than the 5:00 I get up everyday. Right?

LM#1 has a baseball game tomorrow and it's "appreciation" day where all the games have announcers and they will read the kid's stats and interests. Both sets of grandparents will be there, which is perfect because that means I'll be able to take pictures as LM#2 will have four people wanting his attention. My in-laws are arriving sometime in the mid to late morning. Would love a time as I need to go food shopping and if they are going to be here at 11:30 I'll go before they arrive If 10:00 then I'd wait for them and leave the kids with them. *g* I think I'll be going to the store as I can't see them being here that early.

Work. Well there's been a bit of a shake up at work. We have a new CEO and he's making business unit changes and everyone is worried about our location. And after attending three meetings about it, there is nothing to "know" right now. All the changes effective now have nothing do with us, we still need to perform our daily functions to the people that are experiencing a change. I'm sure it will be fine, but the tizzy was started due to a Q&A stating that out location's move to a brand new facility is on hold. We've already sign a letter of intent, deposits, architects. I'm sure it will be fine, and I realize that all those things can be defaulted on, but I'm going with the company won't do that. Hey I can be naive right now.

Iron Man 3 came out today. I'm sad that I won't be seeing it until the 18th. A friend saw it, said it was fun, a bit of a mess, but fun and RDJ was great. And while I haven't seen it yet, kind of disappointed to hear that it's "messy". But we'll see. And I didn't realize that Star Trek: Into Darkness was opening on the 17th. I think the theater will be crowded that weekend. That's our next date night.

And my love/obsession, whatever you want to call it, for RDJ is not lessoning at all. It just keeps growing, it's a bit disturbing actually.

John Carter: found it boring. Taylor Kitsch is an average actor at best, and while it did improve after the first 20 minutes, it just never grabbed me. I didn't care about the humans at all, the Tharks were more interesting. Sadly two hours I wish I had chosen something else.

Once Upon A Time: The Evil Queen )

I'm a week behind with these: Arrow: Home Invastion )

Supernatural: Pac-Man Fever )

2 Broke Girls is starting to lose it's funny/edge for me. This week's episode was kind of ridiculous. Might be good it's nearing the end of the season. And How I Met Your Mother, with the bachelor party, very creative, and fit so well into what Barney would describe as legend... what for it... dary. :)

My MacBook Pro arrived yesterday!!! It's so new and shiny :) I'm happy to report that my iTunes library was been loaded, as well as some Docs and Excel files. One of which was my master rec list, so I'm happy again. The fact I need to scroll "up" to make the page go "down" is odd, but I will get used to it. Figured out that the large finger pad was also the 'clicker', and after consulting the tiny manual, that two fingers will allow me to scroll a page. I will continue to poke at it, need to download pictures fromy my camera, so the fist time I do that should be interesting.

Well. The woman that was Manager before me as decided to fully retire. She's been working 4 days a week for about 18 months and she will stop working in July or August, whenever the repairs on her house are complete. Then StaffMember S wants to go down to 4 days a week starting in June (she too is of retirement age but is nowhere ready to stop working). Add in that my direct boss is being sent to San Diego for three months to try and improve the process of that office... ugh man, just ugh. So I will need to replace a Supervisor while my boss is not here.

Mr. KA has a softball game tonight so I'm going to pick up the kids and take them for a haircut, then new shoes. The shoes I bought LM#2 in February have ripped at the seams. Crazy! So they need new shoes for the spring/summer.

LM#1 is doing well with baseball, he's a good hitter, an ok thrower, a horrible catcher and hit or miss with the running. But he seems more into it this year, so that is good.

The office was closed today so it was a nice day off. Went and got a massage, then ran some errands. I then went to my friends house for a little while to hang and try to teach her some cooking tips. Her son, who is two, is very special needs and she was talking about how much time she doesn't have in order to prep food etc. So I took some of my favorite things to make quick and easy chicken dishes. She asked about cooking times so I told her what she needed. I showed her how you can get something ready in the morning when there is extra time, but then cover it and cook it later.

I shared how I only really cook on the weekend and then store it and reheat it later. I listed all of my side dishes, which sadly, are not that many. :( But I tried to show her how if she rethought her ideas of cooking that perhaps she can squeak out a few meals a week at first. Sadly her husband works many days of the week and doesn't get in until almost 10pm five days a week. I feel as though this is the only thing I can help with at the time.

If anyone has easy crock pot recipes, please share. I'm looking for myself and her, recipes that doesn't have a huge amount of prep are perfect (especially for her, me, I can chop etc).

So we are in the middle of the movie Battleship and, wow, I don't think it's going to get better. Haahaaahaaa. But we plan to watch it in pieces so hopefully we will find it entertaining.

I'm sick again, this is my fourth sinus infection in six months. It's not surprising since I always feel as though I have liquid in my ears/head and I can't get it out. It's just tiring, I'm tired of being so congested and feeling like crap. And I had been looking forward to this weekend for a while because the kids are staying at my parents on Saturday. And while we had no plans, lying around feeling crappy and lying around with the hubby watching TV are slightly different.

Mr. KA and I have a date tomorrow, we are going to the Movie Tavern. A place where we can have dinner and watch a movie at the same time. Sadly their choices of movies were slim since we saw two of them and don’t want to see a 3D movie. I’m seeing Warm Bodies and I just hope it’s amusing, please let it be funny.

I'm getting my hair done tonight, finally. It's way overdo, but what can you do when your friend in on vacation. Probably getting two inches off the bottoms, shorten up the layers, dying it, highlighting it red again, and having her blow dry it straight. Yep, gonna be there for a looong time - thank goodness for my iPad.

The dieting has been awful, I think I've gained back 6 of the 15 I had originally lost, but after LM#2's birthday, Halloween, anniversary, Mr KA birthday... that is when I will get back on the wagon.

DWTS - this week was intersting. I did not agree with the judges on Tuesday night, I thought they were overly hard on Shawn Johnson, while way too lenient on the group dance. While the group dancing to Gangum style was hilarious, it was bad. There were not in time with each other, the individual dances were not filled with much of anything, and it was just all over the place. It should have been 8's, not 9's. The Call Me Maybe group from Monday was awesome, that was incredible. This season is just weird because you have so many that are so good and you still have 8 people left.

Today is a shorter das I'm meeting Mr KA to sign the refinance papers, woohoo to a lower rate and a lower monthly payment. :)

I'm trying to figure out if it's me or if it's them. *g* I kind of hope it's them 'cause that just means I'm way too picky anymore.

Supernatural: Heartache )

The Walking Dead: Seed )

Revolution: Soul Train )

The birthday parties went well. I'm glad it's over though. And tomorrow i have off and I start off the day with a massage. :) I'm very much looking forward to it. Lots of new toys, lots of little pieces...

Steelers are on sadly they are currently losing... I'm beginning to think that this is not their year, but hopefully they will get it together.

Caught up with Supernatural last night. Some thoughts on What's Up, Tiger Mommy? )

Pumpkin Festival was alright today. In and outside a local elementary school and it was interesting. I bought some raffle tickets and put those in some buckets for a chance to win stuff. It benefits the PTO which is nice and since this was our first year we had no idea how to do anything. Kids had snow cones, LM#1 ate the whole thing and LM#2 ate half.

Tonight more tv watching, not sure what is on tap, we still have Sunday shows from last week. Sheesh.
