My name is Laurie. I'm 34 and I live in a suburb of Houston, TX. My life isn't super exciting or ultra dramatic, but I love it! My blogs are just a peek into my life as I know it. I'm quite random and have an opinion on everything, but I love everyone's aspect on things, even if I disagree. The world would be quite boring if not! :-)



Sorry all... I've been missing in action. Yesterday I was down for the count with a terrible sinus headache. I was in bed all day long... ugh!

Work is still crazy busy. We are at full staff again finally, but two are still in training, so it's still going to be crazy for the next month for me. Sigh... at least there is a light at the end of the tunnel!

My weekend was nice and relaxing. I got lots of walking in... We went to see Star Trek on Friday, and I am TOTALLY not a trekkie, but it was enjoyable. Back in the 80's when I was a kiddo, I went with my sister and some neighbors to see Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan. There was a scene were some bug crawled out of somebody's ear.. It haunted me for weeks, and ever since I had not watched anything Star Trek because of that damn bug.. so I guess it wasn't for weeks that it haunted me... but decades!! Well, guess what made an appearance in the damn movie? LOL THE BUG, or whatever it was.. This time I closed my eyes.. Yes, I'm quite a bit older, but I still have crazy dreams.. Oompa Loompas and Smurfs will give me nightmares if I'm exposed to them too long! AHHH!! Anyways, back to the point.. With the exception of the bug, I really liked the movie.. There was humor in it, and the cast was good.

Saturday, we took my mom out for dinner at Pappasitos.. it's a really good Tex-Mex restaurant here in Houston.. It was quite tasty. Besides that on Saturday, I got a haircut, walked, napped, and read Harry Potter book 5.

Sunday, John and I went to Central Market so he could see the Wall of Beer... I added some beers to the cart for him to try, and we just walked around the store quite a bit.. It was crowded, and that's always a good place to people watch, which is one of my hobbies.. lol... After that.. I napped.. and read Harry Potter book 5. Seeing the pattern here?

Anyways... I'm still exhausted!! I failed my challenge yesterday b/c I didn't even make it in to work. I made up for last Thursday's miss, and I will make up for today's... I know overall the challenge was a bust for me, but I'm keeping up with it anyways for me! :)

I am WAY WAY WAY behind on reading blogs... I will try to catch up soon.. I miss reading and feel so out of the loop! :(

I hope you are feeling better!

I can totally see having a nightmare about Smurfs and Oompa Loompas together. I'm shuddering a little just thinking about it. :)

I hope the headache does away soon. Yuck! I can't think of much worse than a sinus headache.

I too love going to Central Market, but I have to keep myself out of there - I always end up spending $100 on stuff I didn't really need.

My hubby saw the Star Trek and has not stopped talking about it. I have no desire to go so as he wants to go again, he can take the kids!

Glad you are feeling better!
