Weekend Coffee Share: Focus is missing edition

 

 

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that

  • I left the coffee pot on too long. I think I burnt it but it’s still tastes like coffee.
  • My assignment at the temporary agency is over. Thank God! Previously, I worked at a very safety conscious factory. This last place was the opposite. It was like they never heard of safety or OSHA.
  • I’ve been trying to get some reading done. Book reviews, Book reviews, Book reviews.
  • And a million other things finished at the same time. I’m struggling to focus on one thing. So nothing really gets finished.
  • I did a few music reviews for the blog, which you will see next week. My music reviews aren’t really official or anything. It’s always just my opinion. Always looking for cool bands. Rock, punk, indie. Not really into death metal.
  • Maybe it’s Pinterests fault that I can’t focus? I’m still spending too much time on Pinterest. Jason Momoa pins are showing up on my feed so that is one blessing that I can count. jasonmomoa

 

  • The other thing on Pinterest are pictures of food, which remind me that I’m starving. I’m going to go make lunch and try to refocus. Also, I need to make sure I really turned the coffee pot off this time.
  • Hope you’re all having a good week!!

weekend coffee share: i’m lazy and a little crazy edition

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that

 

  • it’s hot. I’m ok with being hot but my coffee is not.
  • I quit my job again. I’ve also been struggling with how to put that on job applications. People frown upon it when you say, “I hated it. My boss was a bitch.” It’s the truth but people don’t want to hire people that say it out loud.
  • So I’ve been blogging more, hanging out with the kids and being poor. Plus, Netflix. Lots of Netflix.
  • I got through the current season of Orange is the New Black, all five seasons of Breaking Bad, most of The Keepers, a few episodes of the Queen of the South. 
  • Honestly, it has been worth being broke to drive my kids around to band and tennis. The struggle to get my younger two off of their iPads is a real thing. I read an article that said iPads and tablets are like cocaine to kids. I believe it completely.
  • ChoreMonster is the best app in the world. Whatever gets my kids to do something besides play Minecraft is my favorite. If you’re a parent, you should look into it.
  • At the moment, my kids are at their grandma’s house getting spoiled and not doing any chores or reading any books.
  • My oldest kid brought her bunny over for a few weeks. I’ve been feeding him and trying to keep the cat away. There may have been a picture or two taken.
  • I’ve been on Pinterest a lot.
  • Old post about Pinterest
  • I made a Jason Momoa board.
  • Here it is.
  • Holley’s Jason Momoa board
  • I’ve done a few reviews. Visit my review page to see what’s new.
  • Chasing Destino’s Reviews

 

  • My hair was out of control. I was starting to look like Mario Lopez but not as handsome. Still, better than Screech. There was this curly mohawk mullet thing going on. So I got a haircut.

  • I finally got another job. My prediction is that it will be boring. It’s fine. If boring pays the bills, then boring is fine.
  • The plan besides work is to keep reading books, keep doing stuff like exercising, scrapbooking, blogging and creative stuff. It’s difficult to maintain a balance sometimes. What else am I going to do?
  • My boyfriend will appreciate it if I find a new place for the scrapbook stuff. (It’s probably not  happening anytime soon. If I put it away, then I won’t finish it ever.)
  • What have you guys been doing?

 

I was almost too lazy to post the link.


WeekendWeekend Coffee Share: Introducing Manny Pacquimeow

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that

  • We have a new cat in the house. His name is Manny Pacquimeow. My daughter wants to call him Sir Manny Pacquimeows A Lot.
  • He hasn’t really adjusted yet. He wants to be loved and then immediately claw our faces off.
  • I’m taking Manny to get neutered this week. Hopefully, it will help with the aggression.
  • I’m not sure how to get him into the cat carrier without getting scratched. Manny Pacquimeow is a fighter.
  • The kids and I went to the Humane Society yesterday to get a voucher to use at the veterinary appointment. They let us go into the rooms and pet all of the cats. I think between the four of us we fell in love with about twenty cats.
  • Honestly, I almost left with one named Peanut Butter. He smiled at me. How can anyone resist a smiling cat? 
  •  H0wever, I had to leave without Peanut Butter because Manny Pacquimeow is not ready for company.
  • Let’s keep our fingers crossed that going back to get Peanut Butter will be possible soon.
  • Hopefully, Manny Pacquimeow will recover will from his procedure and be a happier cat.

Weekend Coffee Share: The Kitty Funeral

If we were having coffee, I would be so glad to see you because it has been especially lonely around here. I hope that all of you are doing well.

Unfortunately, our kitty, Lilyrose, passed away. Somehow she got out of the house. She made it several blocks before she was hit by a car. My oldest daughter saw her laying on the sidewalk. Then Lucas brought her body back home.

We had a funeral for her on Thursday morning. My youngest daughter visits her every morning before school and then again when she gets home. It’s very sweet how she asks Lilyrose to protect all of the animals.

Although Lilyrose was with us for a short time, she was the most loved kitty in the world. I remember the first time I made coffee after she came to stay. She was extremely curious about the coffeemaker and the interesting noise that it made.

I will miss her trying to help with the dishes and  trying to catch the cursor while I was writing blog posts. Her favorite show was the pointer finger on Netflix. There was a toy horse that she also loved or hated. It was hard to tell.

Lilyrose was also a fan of the Kim Kardashian Hollywood game. Don’t judge. It’s very can be very addictive. She resembles the cat in the game.

She loved popcorn and cheese. She had a baby blue color because I thought I would have time to buy her a pink one. Our time with her was too short.

Weekend Coffee Share: I Can’t Even . . .

girl-boss

If we were having coffee, I would tell you . . .

  • In about two days, I will be fired. It is going to be the most glorious thing that has happened in the last year. No regrets. Not one.
  • While switching to days was a good thing, I also received a new supervisor who is a psychotic bitch. She makes fun of her workers and the powers that be keep her. So I’m not staying one more minute.
  • My knee is the size of a pumpkin again. It’s inflammation (aka arthritis).
  • This week, I will be spending time looking for a job.
  • I’m hoping that I don’t have to grow my hair back in order to get a job. It would be disappointing. I’m so close to having circa 1990s Prince hair.
  • prince1992
  • One of my other goals is to work on one or both of my books. There’s a third book in the mix somewhere.
  • I’ll get to see my kids and drive them every damn place. It will be pretty awesome.

  • I foresee a lot of coffee in the near future. There’s so much to do: Get a job. Finish writing 3 books. Keep Prince on heavy music rotation per the usual. Drive kids everywhere. Stay positive. The end.

Weekend Coffee Share: This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things Edition

This is Why We Can’t Have nice things

It’s been so long since I’ve done a coffee share post. I don’t even know where to start.

  • We have a cat. She’s a bad kitty but we love her anyway.
  • The amount of potted plants in our house has decreased. See above statement.
  • Also, I found gum on the piano this morning. I don’t think it was the kitty.
  • After a year, I have finally moved to day shift.
  • I don’t have that many friends on day shift.
  • Someone on day shift said that I should wear spiked shoulder pads. It goes with my mohawk and my grumpy, yet somehow charming personality.
  •  It would look like this:
  • rwanimal

BTW: My mohawk is way better. However, I don’t have a belt buckle that big and shiny. I’m thinking that the boyfriend and I could be the Road Warriors for Halloween next year.

  • The change to day shift has been good. I have more time to spend with family. More time to blog. More time to do things that I have been putting off so I can sleep during the day. I can drink coffee during the day now, instead of at 9 p.m. Or 2:30 a.m.

I hope that all of you are doing well. I have really missed you guys!

Weekend Coffee Share: there’s paint in my mohawk 

So this weekend, I looked at Pinterest. I found coffee related things to fuel a million DIY projects. 

I decided that I needed to have beautiful kitchen cabinets. They look like this . . .

I knew right away that I was in over my head. After a few trips to the store, paint in my mohawk and kitchen in a chaotic state, the cabinets look like this . . . .

The lady at the Dollar Store has faith in me.
