So it’s been a good little while since I posted something.  There are more people than I realize that read this thing and a few have asked me when I was going to update.  So here it is.  This is gonna be long…I’ve been gone a while.  Let’s start with the fun things first shall we?

Guess who just booked herself and a guest their very first cruise?  THIS GIRL DID!  I’m still freaking out about it a little but a good freak out.  In May of 2013 yours truly and a friend will be on a boat!  And yes, I’ll be in my flippy floppys.

So where am I going?  I’ll tell ya.  I will be sailing to Half Moon Cay, St. Thomas, San Juan and Grand Turk and I cannot wait!  The only thing that SUCKS about this is that I have to wait over a year to go.  Oh well, it’s something to look forward to!  Random thought as I listen to “I’m on a Boat!”  I’m gonna have to get one of those T Pain voice changers thingies.  I’ll get as close to the front of the boat as possible and yell into it “I’M THE KING OF THE WORLD!!!”  I’m such a dork.

So yeah, cruise…BOOKED!  Deposit…PAID!  Now it’s time to sit and wait.  Which I can do.  Patiently.  Maybe.  Probably not.  Expect a lot of posts about me being impatient with the next year.

OH TO OTHER THINGS!  This is gonna get a little long and maybe boring but it’s my blog and I want to put it on here.  Here we go…the great picture/text foot and booze war of Sprint Training 2012. So Mom talked Dad into going down to Florida to MLB’s spring training again.  The thing you need to know about my mom is that she’s AWESOME.  Seriously… I love my mom.  She marches to the beat of her own trombone that’s for sure.  Probably where I get it from.  So I’m sitting at work when I get a picture text from my mom.

 Mets @ Braves it says.

So I sent this in response.  State Farm @ my desk

To which my sister responds  utmg @ Germantown.

Then Molly got in on it….

This was day one of Spring Training.  Day two brought this.

 Pirates @ Phillies.

I got that as I was walking to use the little Maggie’s room so I stopped in the middle of the office, looked down, took this picture and sent this response.   Work.  You suck

Later that night I had myself a nice little date at BWW when my cousin decided to jump in on the fun.

 Roll Tide! Sweet Home Alabama!  Said Laura.

So naturally I had to add my two feet, uh cents.   Go Tigers Go!  I feel the need to point out that I had consumed a few beers before I took this.  And yes, I stood up in BWW, got my phone out, put my big ass beer on the floor in-between my feet and took not 1, not 2 but three pictures of this because the first two did not come out.  And yes…people looked at me funny but I was having fun and was a little drunk and didn’t care in the least little bit!  Here’s my “I’m drunk and don’t care stop looking at me face” from that night.

  I digress…


Then came another response from my sister Teresa

 T I G E R S

Once of the many reasons I love my sister…she has two different socks on and doesn’t care.

On to the last day of Mom’s spring break trip.  This time I was at home when I got this .  No text to go along with it.

Then came Molly again

I figured it was time to get the cats involved…first was Bocephas  and then came Bosco  He’s a Tiger’s fan.  This is where the foot/drink text messages came to an end.

Seems that no one could trump the cat feet.  I win.

So what else has been going on?  Let’s see.  I gave up Facebook for Lent cause I’m a good Catholic.  I’ve actually been able to stick with this.  Ya me!  Boot camp starts up again Monday morning at 5:30am.  I’ve missed it so much and can’t wait to get back into the swing of things.  Life has been pretty damn fantastic.  I’ve seen a lot of changes and for the first time in a long time I have hope and the further looks bright.  Not because of anyone in particular but because of me babe, ME.  It also helps that there is a guy.  Not gonna get into that because I don’t feel comfortable talking about him yet but he’s there and while I make myself happy, he makes me just a little bit happier.  Ain’t that some shit?

I guess that’s about all of the rambling I’m gonna do today.  I will leave you with this.  It’s not really a challenge.  It’s more of a “do it and see what responses you get.”  I had so much fun texting pictures of my stupid feet back and forth with my family.  It gave me big old belly laughs during a stressful few work days.  I’m gonna keep taking them every once in a while and sending them to random people just to see what they will do in return.  I’ll be so disappointed if someone texts back with an “um…did you get new shoes?” or “why did you send me a picture of your feet?”  Oh GOD…I just thought of something.  What if some sicko foot fetish guy stumbles across this page, sees all of the feet and is like “JACKPOT!”? Well I can’t control it so if it happens, enjoy foot porn man…enjoy!

And yes, I have new shoes.
