Well, I meant to update....

So last week, I had lots to say and no time to say it. Now, I forget what I was gonna say. This is why I must blog when I get the idea - otherwise it just disappears. So I will just pick up here instead of trying to figure out what I was gonna say.

This weekend was a really fun one and went by too fast. Saturday we went to the water park and whew, I was tuckered out by the end of the day. The water park is about a mile and a half from the house. So we went early, swam and played then came home and had lunch, ran errands and then went back. Stayed till early evening and came home for dinner. At that point we could have went back but we were all pretty tuckered out - including manchild. By the time dinner was done we were all ready for bed.

Sunday we got some things cleaned out and packed up. Went to pick up the boat out of storage so Mr. Cheeky could take it down south. I did a little research on a new device for my kitties when we move. Its called a cat genie (just google it). I currently have a litter robot but I think the genie may be the way to go with the new house. Speaking of the new house, we are still undecided on whether to build or buy. At this point, we are looking at new construction in progress or maybe a model home or something. Again, not sure. I will be planning a trip down in the next couple weeks to make the final call.

We did get our taxes completed and filed this weekend. Glad to have that out of the way. Getting a little bit back. Not a huge amount but much better than paying that is for sure.

We also got our computer cleaned up. Last weekend we were hit with a pretty nasty virus and it took forever to get it cleaned up. But its clean. I was almost to the point of buying a new computer. Only because this one is several years old and while it runs OK I wasn't about to put a lot of money into it when I could just get a new one and then reformat this one to play on....know what I mean? But in the end we were able to save this one and life goes on.

Its Bullet Point Time...pew..pew...pew (thats the sound of bullets y'all)

*I saw Hangover this weekend for the first time Friday night. How in the world did y'all let me go this long without watching it? Seriously funny. Lots of laugh out loud moments. I spent the rest of the weekend quoting that movie. So next time when something that good is out there....tell me. Mmmmkay?

*OK here is a little TMI for you. My skin is seriously itchy! This dry air is killing me. I walk around clawing at my tummy of all things. Been using tons of moisturizer. Not helping. Slept with the humidifier last night. Will continue this for a few days to see if that helps.

*One word - SNOW - enough said.

*WoW - I may need an intervention. But I am a 73 and want an 80 so bad I can't stand it. (for those of you that play you will understand that statement and if you don't play well - you should).

*I get two 4 day weeks - woot woot. I am taking this Friday off (just cause I wanna) and I have off next Monday. Don't hate.

*Still debating the build or buy option - I need to hurry up and make a decision. To quote a movie: "Sometimes if you don't make a choice, the choice makes you" (and HUGE kudos if you know the movie it comes from - I will tell ya later in the comments after you have had a chance to guess - here is a clue - comic book.)

*I had a dream this morning and woke up (at 4:30am) with high blood pressure and furious (not just mad but FURIOUS) with my kids. From.a.dream. Luckily I have time to calm down before they get up. Isn't it funny how dreams can make you mad?

*OK that is all I have for you (and yes, this needed its own bullet).

Cheeky - (who is getting serious for a moment) - Remembers her FIL - we lost him one year ago today. Miss you Big O.

Not a lot going on

Yeah, its sort of boring around Chez Cheeky these days.

I have been using the new treadmill regularly. Its good for me....right?.

I will be putting the finishing touches on the cards this weekend. If you want on the list, speak now otherwise you will miss out.

Members of the house are getting the sniffles and crud like symptoms....they better keep them to themselves....just sayin.

I have tickets to Bon Jovi in April. I hear they added a second show. I think I may need to get tickets for that one too.

That's it - that's all I got.....kinda sad isn't it?

And now its time to make decisions....

So, with the upcoming move, I have been looking at houses for sale. There are quite a bit to choose from. But I have time. So, the idea was brought up to build. Now do I build or buy? There are arguments on each side. But at this point in time I am leaning toward building. I have never built a home before, always bought (although I always said that if I was ever going to build it would be the house I would stay in and not move again - but that is not the case here). After looking at what is on the market and preliminary (very preliminary) looking at builders it seems that I can build cheaper. Let me say that a down market where foreclosures abound it looks like I can build cheaper. Amazing isn't it? And there is the issue of time....I have that luxury and can be flexible in my relo date. Of course there is a lot more research to do but that is what the thought is now....but if ya'll know anything about me that will change....and change again HA!

Oh and a side note: For those of you that are wondering. I LOVE the new treadmill and have already been on it - running. Yeah, you read that right....running. Me. And manchild may or may not have taken a video of me doing said running with his cell phone. I will neither confirm nor deny the existence of said video.

Cheeky - who is off in search of manchild's phone - there's some deleting to be done.

I like to move it move it....

This was one of the laziest weekends I have had so far this year. Did a few things around the house, played a little (ok ok a LOT) of WoW, did some laundry, watched some movies. Yeah, pretty lazy....but I LIKE IT! was topped off with the delivery of courtesy of Sears. Thank you Sears - you are the best.

The dudes that came to deliver and set up - now they know what they are doing. Bing, bang, boom and it was done. Seriously, it would have taken me the entire weekend to figure out that set up but not them - they are the pros. But it is one sweet treadmill. Brand spankin new. And with the new treadmill goes my excuses for not getting on it - damnit! Kidding kidding....well sorta. I am excited to have it and get back on it.

Can't say that I am excited about the work week. No no I am NOT getting short timers attitude. Its just that its Monday.....and I have to give orientation every Monday. And it the same stuff - over and over. I try to make it funny but they just stare at I have two heads or something. I just want to say (ok sometimes I do say it) "lighten up people - you have to go through this once, I go through it EVERY.WEEK." - that usually gets them. Perhaps I will get a little extra go go juice this morning...AFTER my treadmill....and show up perky. That'll show 'em.

Cheeky - who is singing..... I like to move it move it....I like to move it move it....I like to move it move it... I like to...MOVE IT! (and yes, I am singing it like they do in Madagascar....just in case you wondered)
