I just feel blah - I'm on vacation and I feel like I can't be bothered...

What's up with that?

Of course we're doing more than usual - because we have friends who are vacationing in the same city.

And it's fun. BUT...

I kinda just feel like vegging instead of going over to their friend's house for dinner. I mean we had fun when we went earlier this week. Even though one of them smokes like a friggin chimney and our clothes smelled to high heaven.

And I'm sure we'll have fun tonight. But I'm just not really in the mood.

Maybe I'm dehydrated.  Or maybe I need more coffee...

btw - coffee in Vienna is good - berry good!

And that's all I have to say about that...

I love sausages with cheese inside

Snow is beautiful - but cold

The Schonbrunn Palace is my favorite Palace

Mustard is good

TV in Austria and Germany is racy and I like it

Christina Aguilera has big boobs in the video on TV

I can't wait to be stinkin filthy rich

Vacation Time Again!

You gotta love a life where you get to travel for fun so much.

We're off to Vienna, Budapest, and Prague and I can't wait. I'm especially looking forward to Budapest after reading the guide book. They have a lot of palaces and baths AND from reading the guidebook I think the food and drink will be outstanding. One of their specialties is potato pancakes with sour cream! BLISS!

I hope the coffee is good.

I know the beds will be comfortable - it's a Starwood.

This trip instead of eating breakfast in the hotel we're going to go out. I really enjoyed that with SP on our trip and it saves money.

On the road again! Like a band of gypsys we go down the highway!

In my head I'm a really, really, really good singer.

Are we human? Or are we dancers?

I didn't make either one of my goals yesterday. I had some dark chilli chocolate and I didn't exercise.

But...this morning I did sit ups and push ups and I lifted my 5lb weights AND I stretched.
There you go and here we are.
My new goal today is to not eat sweets.  I already feel weak though because it's "THAT time of the month"
Anyway I got nothing else today.
Except it's Thursday - which is my Friday.
Which means that tomorrow is Friday - which is Sunday.
And that Ladies and Gentlemen means I get to....
Oh yeah baby!  Just like Queen Latifa in Last Holiday on the wonderful sheets in the Grand Hotel Pupp.
Wallow, wallow, wallow.
Then coffee...
I can't wait!

Christmas is a coming....

the goose is getting fat, please put a penny in the old man's hat, if you haven't got a penny a ha'penny will do, if you haven't got a ha'penny God bless you!

I love Christmas!

My tree is up and our trip is planned.  Vienna is so much fun this time of year.

Of course I like Vienna any time of year.  But now that I think about it I've only been in the winter.

Hmmmm, we should go in the spring and see what it's like.

It rained last night.  Torrential rain. 

It actually woke me up - but I think that's because it's such an odd sound here in Dubai.  It rains like once or twice a year. Literally. 

I miss rain, and green vegetation.  Of course I don't want to live anywhere it rains all the time (i.e. London). 


That's what it's all about.

I need to have Goals again.  I lost 6lbs and I'm scared I'll gain it back.  I've been reading some weight loss blogs and they are good incentive and motivation.  My favorite is ExHotGirl http://exhotgirl.blogspot.com/.

She is funny!  And she's lost a ton of weight.

So anyway back to my Goal (it's got a cap b/c it's Important!).   No sweets today and I'm going to aim for sit-ups today and maybe 5 pushups.

Go Judith! Go Judith! Go Judith! 

I am my biggest fan!

If I'm not, who will be?

Random Monday

Here are the things going through my head this morning...

Rain drops on roses and whiskers on kittens....

I'd like to teach the world to sing, in perfect harmoney, I'd like to buy the world a coke and keep it company...

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, my new fuzzy vest SP gave me!  I can't wait to talk to her and thank her!


Coffee. oh and


Merry Christmas, Merry, Merry Christmas, from your K-Mart Christmas Store.

Should I try to put photos on my blog?  It makes writing it a bit more effort...

I like photo books.  A lot.

I love my little dog.

And my husband.

I can't wait for vacation.

Weird Dreams

I had a very weird dream this morning.

I dreamed that I was uploading old photos that I had digitized - which makes sense because that's what I was doing before I went to bed.

But I was anxious to have them upload because "someone" was going to catch me. 

Then I was pulling one of those Rubbermaid storage boxes on wheels and it was filled with guns.

How weird is that?!

I think I was trying to get away from the "someone" who was going to "get me" if I didn't upload the photos fast enough.

I guess I was going to shoot them with one of my many guns if they caught me?

I woke up feeling like I needed to do something RIGHT NOW so I didn't get caught.

Can I tell you how glad I was it was a dream?

Reading is fundamental.

I love to read.

So much so I get sucked in and ignore everything else.

For hours and hours.

But not today. Today I'm sewing.

Maybe I'll finish my blouse....

It's so beautiful outside today it almost feels like a crime to stay inside.

It's about 75 degrees - A bright, sun shiney day.

Christmas time is here

I was watching a Charlie Brown Christmas and it made me warm and fuzzy.  I love that show - actually I love all the Charlie Brown shows - so I downloaded them.

I wrote Christmas cards this year - send some to the States with my husband - need to address the rest.  Fingers crossed I actually send them out.

I'm back at work after having 4 days off - can I just say I don't want to be here.  But it's a good thing I am because I would never be on a regular time schedule if I didn't have to get up to go to work.  I can't seem to go to bed before 1am and if I don't have to get up for work - I'm not out of bed until 10am. 

I'm awake about 9am - but I don't roll out of bed. 


I'm addicted.


I need coffee - it seems like there is never enough in my coffee cup and just as I'm getting to feel partially human, I run out.

So now I need to go get more - I'm gearing up for it...

It's going to take an hour or so before I'm actually out the door. 

It's a process.
