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! :-)


Thursday 13: Random Thoughts

Wow, it's been quite some time since I did a Thursday 13.   I have missed them but being sick had zapped my blogging energy (and any other energy for that matter!).
This week's edition will just be random thoughts going through my head...
  1. I've had a Xanax prescription for anxiety for about 6 months and had not taken a single pill.   Last night I took one and it was the first night that I can remember where I slept through the night..   NICE!
  2. I am getting excited for the next Harry Potter movie to come out. 
  3. John and I may be going to Orlando again in December to attend his sister's graduation from college.  I hope it works out! I'd love to go again.
  4. I have a garage sale on Saturday and I have done little to prep for it.   I can't wait for it to be over with!
  5. I'm both nervous and excited for my Scentsy Launch Party this weekend!
  6. I got my 10 lb star yesterday at Weight Watchers.   I lost 2.4 lbs last week, totaling 12.2 since I joined!
  7. I was excited to find out that my scale and the scale at WW match perfectly! Wahoo!!
  8. A nap sounds amazing right now.   I'm so tired...   I slept great last night, but the past several weeks of waking up multiple times has taken it's toll on me.
  9. I've started my Christmas shopping.  I've got a long way to go, but I'm making definite progress.
  10. I found out this week that I'm no longer upside down on my car.  Now to decide if I should sell it and get something that's not going to be $500 a month!  It's very painful!
  11. I have been caffeine free for a week.    I'm enjoying Tazo Passion Tea and Tazo Organic Apple Red tea as my drink of choice.
  12. Does anyone know of a site where I can find out how much an autograph is worth?    Back in my heavy metal days (about 20 years ago, ha!)  I met Pantera and got the group's autograph.. I know one of the musicians was murdered a few years back, and I want to sell it to someone who would appreciate the picture more since I don't care for heavy metal at all anymore.
  13. This week has been never ending. I'm ready for the weekend even though it will be one of my busiest weekends in ages! 
Hope you all have a Happy Thursday and an even happier upcoming weekend!
To participate, head over to Thursday 13.

I take a generic for xanax every night to sleep. If I ever stop it will be because I had to go to Betty Ford to get off of it. But I sleep so well. Thank goodness.

Congrats on the 12.2 pounds! Good luck on the launch party. And how in the world did you find two scales that match?! *smile*

Happy TT,

WTG on your WW! I have no clue about autographs. And? I'd love to hear how your garage sale turned out!

Have a great week! :) - Kirsten

You should try a herbal tea to sleep. It is better than Xanax.

I collect autographs, and I've got a ton of price guides for autographs. Unfortunately Pantera is not in the price guide, so in that case you must do the next best thing: do some online research for what the going rate is of a single item signed by the whole band. I've seen prices ranging from $25 to $1650. I think the median price is about $300, so that's what I'd price yours at, without seeing signature quality, how nice the object is that was signed, etc.

Way to go on your WW loss! I like your lists!!! :)
