Let's Get Ready to Ramble

I am back and although it's day by day, I am up for a challenge, for the most part. I thought I would bring every one up to speed on my my shenanigans the last few days.  So be prepared I am going to ramble. Plus it's my birthday week, why not celebrate with a few laughs.

First, there are some things about this situation that makes me laugh. They say laughter through tears is a sign of getting better. If that's the case, I should be in the ER from excessive pain. Point in case, exDuh (yes I am still going to refer to him as such, seems even more fitting now) called me a gold digger. Why did I find this funny? Because I have never dug for gold in my life nor would I pick up a shovel to do so. #Winning

Second, because above mentioned person took the TV in the bedroom, I was on the hunt for a replacement. I didn't want to spend a blue million dollars on a new one, so my mom told me to check out Goodwill. I did so and scored a TV for $14 smacks. I come home with wires and plugs scattered everywhere and decided that I could do this, hook up the Direct TV thing. After 45 minutes of plugging, unplugging, programing, Googleing  codes for the TV because it didn't come with a remote, I see this long black wire thingy with two silver ends. I, for shits and giggles and at my wits end, decided to plug one into the cable box and the other into the TV. Holy Batman, it worked! I now feel like I could work at Best Buy...as a door greeter. #Winning

My moma mia gave me an iPad. I am addicted. I have turned into a total nerd in which I carry it around like its a child. I have no clue why. I have an iPhone, it does the same crap. But it's great for playing Diamond Rush. I played for 3 hours solid on Saturday night because I had nothing else better to do. I won a high score, collected 7 coins and instead of saving them promptly bought 5 more lives. #Winning

Finally, I watched alot of the ID channel in between college football and devouring a foot long coney dog. My appetite has gone to the birds so it was the first meal I had all day long on Saturday. I am secretly hoping the fat starts to feed on itself or at least just my fluffy and reduces down to a small loaf of banana bread. Total ramble. Any hoot, I was watching some case where the guy off'd his wife and his would be attorney made the statement that his client knew how to work the ladies, he said and I quote, "To get the hoochy, you gotta buy the Gucci."  Then it hit me, I am no hoochy, I have no Gucci and I am not a gold digger. I do better with diamonds. #Winning

Again, thank you everyone for the tweets, emails, sweet cards, gifts and words of encouragement. I am so humbled. I love you all from the bottom of my heart. I promise to get back to what I love and that is blogging and friends. #Winning.


Happy Monday,
Dusty

  4. I'm so glad you were able to get your tv set up. Life without a tv is not one I want to try out. Plus, if you can do that, you can do anything! I'm really excited for your new chapter because I know it's going to be awesome. :)
