Currently on a Sunday Night


Watching: WWE Hell in a Cell pay-per-view. Only one of my guys won so far – Bobby Roode. Boo, hiss.

Eating: Banana bread, baked tonight.

Reading: What It Means When a Man Falls from the Sky. Come back Tuesday for my Show Us Your Books post!

Learning: SAP Business Object Business Intelligence. It’s for work, and it’s a new thing and while I had training, I’m seeking entry level tutorials on it, because it’s new. I have a love/hate relationship with new software. If you know of any good online tutorials, let me know in the comments, please? Or email me at ladygypsy and then that AT sign with the usual gmail domain name.

Losing: At Words with Friends. STILL.

Sleeping: in tomorrow because it’s Work From Home Monday! Woooo! WM is off as well, so I’ll have an intern to bring me breakfast and lunch. My plan is to watch WeBI videos all morning.


Rabbit rabbit! I can’t believe it’s October already. I’m sure the pumpkin spice cabal is pleased. I’ve been wearing sweats all weekend, because I’m …

Freezing!: It starts dropping into the 50s and it’s like my body gives up.

Sniffling: Because I appear to have caught the ick that’s going around work. It was just a matter of time. I work from home tomorrow so I can eat soup and wrap myself in 17 blankets.

Coughing: up dog hair because I did this today:

I filled a small wastebasket with his hair.

We have always brought Ollie to the groomer but I have a decent trimmer now and I want to see if I can get Murphy used to the home treatment. I’m trimming him to 3/4″ on his body and 1/8″ on his head and halfway down the ears. There are tufts of hair on him that I missed and he won’t let me touch his feet yet. Other than that, I’m impressed with my handiwork.

Losing: at Words with Friends. Still.

I downloaded Boggle with Friends because I’m apparently a glutton for punishment. Which also, if your Boggle profile picture is this…

…you’re not very inviting as a Match of the Day. I’d probably be unable to resist typing #takeaknee in the chat window before the match started just to see the Donald Duck like reaction I’d get.

Fact: I also say Merry Christmas, support our troops, say God Bless America, eat apple pie, am humble and kind, etc. The difference with me is that if you don’t, I’m OK with that.

Planning: my agenda for the PA Conference for Women on Tuesday. Michelle Obama will be there. No big.

Reading: I’m starting Elizabeth Gilbert’s Big Magic as soon as I’m done this blog post. I can’t quit her or the woo self-help genre. After that is Lincoln at the Bardo which, with a mere click, magically transferred from Overdrive to my new Kindle in less than a minute. No Adobe, no cables, no sideloading.

Currently on a Sunday Night

Watching: America Ninja Warrior episodes from this summer. When I’m doing hard things, I picture Akbar Gbajabiamila saying “I SEE YOU KIM! I SEE YOU!” I’d like to have fewer heart-tugging background stories and more runs, but it’s still a solid watch and I love the camaraderie.

Healing: I ended up going to the doctor for my sore back and he prescribed anti-inflammatories and stretching. I think the pain is fading, but it’s been a good 2 months now so maybe I’m getting used to it? I have enough meds to get me through October. If it’s still bugging I have a prescription for xrays.

sneakily Editing: this post on a Monday afternoon. I can’t see typos when I blog on my Surface. Stupid eyes.

Losing: STILL LOSING at Words with Friends. Shameful, Kim, shameful. Akbar doesn’t see you.

Posing: We went to my cousin’s daughter’s wedding and — okay wait…I have to tell you how crazy it is that I held this girl IN MY ARMS as an infant and yesterday she got married. Effing insane. Sunrise, sunset, and all of that crap. The wedding was at a farm, and the barn rang my Fixer Upper bells. This is me in the dress I talked about in June.

Dress by eShakti, shoes by Naturalizer, necklace by Stella & Dot, bracelet is Diamonique by QVC. None of it #sponsored but the Cab Sauv was on the house.

“You’re a bartender’s best friend,” the bartender told me after I expertly ordered 3 drinks.
“Why is that?” I asked coyly.
“Because you know exactly what you want.”
I laughed. “I’ve had a lot of practice.”

Thisis 45: old enough to wear Naturalizers, but still young enough to know how to Wobble.
