A Whole Lotta Nothin Goin On...

My dad is still in Nicaragua, on his "Man-cation".  Apparently, he has no desire to return home anytime soon.  For those of you who just started reading my blog and are new, my dad left to his homeland in Central America, back in November, a week before Thanksgiving. It was his first time back since he came to live in the United States.  He's seventy years old, actually, tomorrow is his birthday, so he'll be seventy-one!  He was only supposed to be there a couple of weeks.  I guess he's having a better time than he expected because, he's still there!

I am still sicky. Haha, my nieces and nephews come up with all these "cutesy" words and I'm around them so much, I start using them too. -hence the use of the word, "sicky".  Which can be a little embarrassing when you tell your boss that your "toesies" are cold or "Pass the chippies" , or like today, when he asked me, "How are you feeling Yvonne?" and I replied, "I feel a little yucky..."  Anyway, in case you're wondering, I am still sick, but not as bad as I was this past weekend and I'm well on the road to recovery, thank you very mucho!

Procrastination.  That should be my middle name.  I always put everything off.  I've been doing this for years! It's something that I promised myself I would become better at NOT doing, this year.  Results? Well, here we are in week two, of month two, of the new year and I haven't done crap!   Ok, ok, I have done crap, just not the crap I'm supposed to be doing. Ay! Baby steps I guess.  No really, I have to get better at not procrastinating!  It's just a matter of re-prioritizing and just doing it.  Agree? Of course you do!

Moving on. 

The humidity is back.  How do I know? Ha! My hair told me so, that's how! I walked around all day with my curlies in total frizz mode and then some!  Texas weather, gotta love it!

And on that note, I'm off to see a pillow about some sleep.  Wish me luck!

I hope you have a good night sleep and a good hair day (code for better weather) tomorrow.

I think that's great that your dad's enjoying himself in his homeland.

I'd take any form of warm weather right now. Even if it involves humidity... Sweet dreams.

Hope you're back on your feet soon. I haven't had warm enough weather for my "curlies" to frizz...but I completely feel your pain because my hair afros out like you wouldn't believe.

My brother lives in Texas now (Houston). He keeps asking when I'll come to visit, and I keep putting it off because I *hate* humidity so much. But, alas, he's getting married there later this year, so I'll just have to bite the bullet and make do. :)

Glad to hear you're slowly getting better, Yvonne. And kudos to your father for having a good time and refusing to quit! We should all be so lucky.
