It's Monday, Mon.

Monday morning!!

Bleh.

The current temperature in the ATL is 53 degrees. We're expecting rain today.

BLEH!!!

Just trying to get excited about it. (It ain't working out, man).

This is going to be an interesting week at work. As you know, I have a one month vacation coming up, starting next Monday. So this week they are going to work the CHEESE outta me!

Not looking forward to that. They better get it in, because I'm going to work like a dog this week. And when I leave on Friday, I'm GONE!

Me and my cubicle mate The Cowgirl Cre have a complicated plan just in case someone tries to call me. She's on the look out. We will talk at night.

I could be called back in. Sigh. I hope that's not the case.

We have a new interim supervisor coming in today for 45 days... This should be interesting.

Hmmmm...

I will have a great workweek! On purpose, man!!!

My Weekend. It went by toooooo fast. It was GAWGEOUS outside, with the temperatures being in the early 70s. WOW! GAWGEOUS!

I did chores, ran errands, and had a Triple F Posse meeting.

We were under a financial fast for 21 days, and I was semi-participating. I managed to tighten up some finance plans that will take place for the rest of the year, so I was happy about that. I have a list of other things that need a little tightening, but that is ongoing. It was good to take a look at and assess myself financially. We had a good meeting, and there was good discsussion.

I want to go to New Orleans for the weekend, but I'm not sure it's a great idea financially. I have a cut off limit of what I want to spend. I also want to play some poker at the casino. Might not be able to afford it.

But it's my birthday weekend!

*Lee has a FULL blown temper tantrum early on a Monday Morning*

Let's just say... the hotel I want to stay in is about $400 a night. O_o

(Won't be staying up in that joint!)

We will see. I'll know by Thursday. Just doing a little planning right now. The RIGHT thing to do would be to stay my behind here in the ATL and chill.

Our 25th Church Anniversary is next weekend! Sigh! I reallhy want to go!

So I write a note to myself: Dear LadyLee: Get your priorities straight.

Yes. No. Maybe so.

All I know, if I can work it all out----> Rental car, hotel, and meet-ups with my friends, for a nice price, then I am outtie.

If not, then that's fine too.

Heck, I may just roll down there the following weekend! Stay tuned!

Quotes of the day. from twitter prophet, Consciousskillz

Passion without purpose is misguided enthusiasm.

A goal or a plan without action is only a wish.

Short quotes, but power packed. And the real truth.

Song of the Week. Last week we talked about Meshell ndegeocello, who sings one of my favorite songs.

That song "Soul Searchin" is my #2 favorite song.

Let's ask one of the Chickens, one of my favorite bloggers, what my favorite song is...

Blogger Southern Black Gal! Wassup Chicken!?

What's my favorite song of allll time!?

She stands up from her chair in her cubicle. "Lee!!!! It's that, it's that, it's that, it's that, Vesta song!" she screams. "You like that Vesta! I can't remember the name of it! But you like that cut by Vesta!"

That's right, babes.

Vesta's "You Make Me Want to (Love Again)"



This has been my favorite song for the last 23 years, since the age of 17. I KNOW this song. Can sang it better than Vesta, I can.

The lyrics are a bit... stalkerish. Nothing worse than stalking and begging a man. I can't hate. I haven't ever stalked a dude, but I've done my fair share of begging, when I didn't know any better. But I love the sweeping melody, and Vesta got a voice like WHOA! She sang the hell out of this here song!

My cassette tape broke about 10 years ago. Sigh. The full CD is a special rare collectors item now. Vesta's debut, that contains the song, usually goes for about $200 on ebay. (Trust, i've bidded on it in the $100 range. Some freakin' vultures always come in and drive up the price and swipe it! UGH!)

I'll get it one day! I'm just glad someone posted the song on youtube. So I can listen to it whenever I want!

Whelp!

That's it for today. I am going to get up and get ready for work.

I may post all week. I've been consistent. I like my daily posts, don't you?

If time permits, I will!

You have a great week!

On Purpose!!!!

  8. Have you called that hotel directly to see if they have some sort of special? Like maybe a birthday special. LOL, but really sometimes when you call them directly they might have something that isn't normally advertised.

  9. I remember looking for that album for you a few years ago but no such luck.

    Regarding the hotel look up discount codes on the 'net. I look up codes everytime I'm about to order or buy something from in-store. lol
