Tuesday Twosome...

This is a very old meme but it keeps me motivated to post.

What are the last two…

1. TV shows you watched? The Following & House of Lies

2. Household chores you finished? Vacuumed & cleaned cat box

3. Food items you ate? Potato Latkes & Sour Cream

4. Websites (before here) you visited? Facebook & IMDB

5. Things you do before you go to sleep? Prep my bed & watch TV 

 Last night was my bi-weekly nail appointment and when I got home I had Potato Latkes for dinner they were delicious! Even Layla liked them.


  You're fun, outgoing, and you love to try anything new.
However, you tend to have strong opinions on what you like.
You are a total girly girly at heart - and prefer your coffee with good conversation.
You're the type that seems complex to outsiders, but in reality, you are easy to please

I Am On A Roll!

Yay I am on a roll now! Thanks Annie for the meme.

A Day in Your Life...

1. What time of day do you usually get up? On week days 6:00 on weekends when I work 8:00

2. Do you greet the day with coffee or tea? Neither

3.Do you hit the deck running or does it take you a while to get going? Running really fast!!

4. Do you eat breakfast? Yes, Greek yogurt during the week and on the weekends an English Muffin, Waffle or an egg.

5. What is your typical breakfast food? Greek Yogurt

6. Sunny days or quiet rainy days? We have so many sunny days it is nice to have a rainy day but they are never quiet since I usually have to drive to work.

7. A Job or stay at home? 2 jobs

8. What's for lunch? At work I bring fresh salads, soups, fresh 1/2 sandwich and sometimes left overs.

9. Any daytime TV? What do you like to see? No not anymore in the olden days I use to watch All My Children, General Hospital and One Life to Live. Now I sometimes record Ellen or Katie Couric's shows if someone is good on them.

10. Do you sit outside to have tea or coffee sometime during the day if the weather is nice? I only drink one cup of coffee on Saturday's and Sunday's at the Hospital while I am working. They have the best coffee. No I never sit outside to drink either.

Tonight we have a Movie Interruption of the Tom Cruise movie Jack Reacher. I actually liked this movie. So we will see how funny the comedians will make out of it .The next installment of Doug Benson’s Movie Interruption, where Doug and his friends (who, in the past, have included everyone from Paul F. Tompkins to Sarah Silverman, Ed Helms, Jon Hamm & Zach Galifianakis) chill on the front row couches, mics in hand, and say whatever hilarious thing pops into their heads while a movie of their choosing unfolds on the screen.

My plans for the weekend! I am working a doubleheader tomorrow. Even though they originally cut my hours back by eliminating Friday nights at the Hospital they now have had seconds thoughts, but I do not want to be scheduled them anymore I like having a Friday nights off a lot! So I let them know my availability for each 2 week schedule. So I have been averaging about one every other Friday if I don't have plans. So I work a very long day tomorrow 6AM when I get up until I get off at 12:00 AM. Saturday normally I work 3:30-12 but we have a show at the UCB theater so I will be working 10:30-7 and Sunday will be the same.

I Am Sorry I Have Been MIA....

I tried so many times to post and then just got frustrated and didn't. Everything is fine with me just don't feel like blogging much for some reason and I have no idea why? Maybe because I am on Facebook and it seems to much to do both? Well everything is great on my end and  I will come by and visit all your blogs this evening after I get home tonight I promise!! Spring and Summer are almost upon us here. We of course have had temps in the 80's and 90's off and on for a month or so. This year I have no vacation plans, maybe next year a cruise to the Bahama's we are looking into. The kids have some fun vacation plans in June and July they are going to Sedona, AZ, Pismo Beach and Colorado they are jeeping with friends. Chris is taking Natasha to Ireland for 3 weeks in June, Natasha is very excited. She promised to take Justin somewhere next year. He is thinking Italy!! I am taking a a week off with my Birthday on 7/3 but I am only going to go on a mini vacation to Santa Barbara and Solvang and I am not sure what else I will do on the rest of the week I take off yet?  Mother's Day weekend we are going to Glen Ivy Spa in Corona I am taking a 3 days weekend we will go there on Monday after Mother's Day. Layla is now is 7 months old and she is getting so BIG!! Lily will be 4 years old next month. Of course I have to share a few pictures!

Finally I Am Posting!

I just have not been in mood to post in here. I guess Facebook just takes to much of my time. Well since I posted last there is not much new. I took Valentine's Day off and Joe and I had a great lunch at a wonderful Mexican restaurant in North Hollywood called Salsa & Beer. They grill their Taquitos like you do Fajitas and it is so delicious. The only place I know that makes them this way so when we go there that is what we usually get. After lunch I went to Costco & Target. I got all new rugs for my 3 bathrooms at Target and they were all on sale the colors I picked out. I also got a new George Forman grill I wanted it in stainless steel to match all my appliances and my old one had seen better days. It was a fun day!! Then back to work on the weekend.

Layla was 6 months old on the 12th and she is feisty and playful as ever and she is a talker like her Siamese Mom! Her new thing is to walk on top of my doors!

I'm BACK!!

This is the longest that I have gone without posting. So many people aren't either so I had not much of an incentive to do so. TGIF!!!

Chris and I went to a great play last night at The Falcon Theater in Toluca Lake what a great play it was Bunny Bunny Gilda Radner: A sort of romantic comedy by Alan Zweibel. Beginning with the first time they met behind a potted tree in an early Saturday Night Live meeting, Bunny Bunny is a whirlwind personal journey through the fourteen-year friendship of writer Alan Zweibel and comedienne Gilda Radner. The play pulls us through a memory patchwork of Alan’s hilarious and heartbreaking adventures with his dear Gilda, as their insecurities and demons are eased by their shared talent for laughter. Gilda is so missed she passed away from Ovarian Cancer at only 42 years old in 1989. We loved the play it was funny and touching all in one.

Layla recovered just fine from her surgery (spayed) She is feisty as ever and still loves posing for the camera. And on the 12th she will be 6 months old. I can't believe I have had her now for over 4 1/2 months.

This is another working weekend for me. I am actually even working tonight so it will be back to back jobs until midnight tonight. I am happy to work Friday's every once in awhile. No more every Friday even though I miss the money they were not smart taking them away because now I am fine not working them. I was asked but said NO!! Just once in awhile. I am loosing $440 a month from just not working 4 Fridays 6-12. I have adjusted my budget and I am OK! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

It is Friday again! Weeks are flying by. I did some fun things this week among them was the movie interruption of Thor The Dark World, thank goodness we had some funny people sitting in the front row interrupting this movie it was pretty bad. I love all the Marvel superheros especially Iron Man, Thor is my least favorite now I know why! Tonight Joe and I are going to see the movie that Matthew Mcconaughey and Jared Leto have been winning a lot of awards for Dallas Buyers Club. We are going to have a late dinner after the show at the Cheesecake Factory in the Sherman Oaks Galleria. It is a regular work weekend for me except Saturday I am working 10:30-7 so I can go to one of our favorite improv shows at the UCB theater. Normally I work 3:30-12. Layla is doing great. Her stitches look great I can barely see them anymore. It will be 2 weeks on Monday she was spayed. She is such a sweet kitty and loves to pose for pictures. Ans she loves my lamp on my end table by my bed! Have a great weekend!

My Layla!

Layla was spayed on Monday and I was lucky to have Emily and Zach drop her off at my house when they came into Burbank. I brought her inside and she starting flopping all over the floor with that cone on. So off it went and I never put it back on. She was pretty groggy and not herself for 2 days. I actually took Wednesday off to be home with her. Lily was being a brat and hissing and hitting her. By the third day all was well between the two of them and my Layla was back to herself again. I will never wait 5 months as the Vet had suggested. I read online it is perfectly fine to spay or neuter cats as young as 6 weeks. Every kitty I have ever adopted were already fixed and they were all between 6-8 weeks old. I was a nervous wreck over this!
This was at the Vet's right after she woke up. Emily text  me the picture.

This is her day 3 much better. 
My mini iPad came on Tuesday while I was home on vacation and I love it. It is so much easier relaxing in bed with an iPad than with a lap top let me tell you. Since I have an iPhone I was able to get all the apps I have on my cell and with iCloud all my contacts and picture were right on it when I connected it and set it up. So easy. 

It was so hard going back to work after being off for 4 days! Only 2 days back and it is Friday already. I am working the weekend at the Hospital my usual hours. Tonight I am going to dinner with the kids plus Justin's 21st Birthday is on the 25th and he will be in Las Vegas for a convention for their business the week prior to his Birthday so some of his friends will be heading to Vegas to celebrate it with him. I won't be and Paul will be back home. Lisa is going to stay and she has a friend coming up also. So I will not see him until they get back on the 30th. I will give him his gift tonight at dinner. They have Supercross tomorrow night and then they leave for Vegas on Sunday morning for 12 days. It is actually 2 shows back to back. Paul will go up on Sunday fly home Wednesday then go back for the second show on 28th. I can't believe my baby is going is going to be 21 and my other baby is going to be 43 in May! YIKES!! Have a wonderful weekend ALL!
