Thursday 13 v. 64 - Thirteen Life Tidbits

Thirteen Tidbits from Carmen's Recent Life

Here's what I've been doing over the past few weeks, things on my mind, etc. I know it's a day early, but will be too busy to post later.




  1. Booked our trip to GREECE. Woo hoo!

  2. I've been shopping a lot for summer sale stuff. I've got to have at least 7 days of summer clothes for the trip.

  3. Going to a work event with "the guy"(his work, not mine.)

  4. I Re-arranged my living room. I can't find a configuration that I like.

  5. Got new curtains and couch pillows for the living room.

  6. Went furniture shopping with "the guy". I think I found a drop-leaf kitchen table, but can't get motivated to spend the $300 for it, even if it is a really good deal (table and 2 chairs for that price)

  7. Posted the UVA football schedule on the fridge. I'll miss the first home game due to the trip, but I'm looking forward to my first year of season tickets. Believe it or not, all the home games except one fall on weekends when "the guy" is working. Don't tell me things don't happen for a reason.

  8. Still working out. It's really hard on days where the temperature tops 100 like it has this week, but I've got to keep on keeping on.

  9. I'm thinking about buying a new car. The new Toyota Highlander got a redesign for 2008 (I have a 2004 Highlander). Everyone keeps trying to talk me out of it, I don't know why. If I can keep my payment the same or less, what's the big deal?

  10. Went to see the Bourne Ultimatum. Wow! What a thrill ride. And Matt Damon looks HOTT!

  11. I've been really sucked in to Big Brother 8. I think it's terribly unfair that someone on the outside hired a plane with the sign that blew America's Player Eric's cover. You'd think Big Brother would keep that kind of stuff from happening - they'd want America's Player in there as long as possible.

  12. I got my hair cut. I'm not real happy with it. What part of leave the length do they not get? I'm thinking of getting my hair highlighted again (I haven't done it in a while) because it's getting so dark! Still no grey, though. Yay!

  13. I've been getting eaten alive by mosquitos. I'm a Carmen buffet to them.

I'm a buffet for the mosquitos too so you're not alone.

Have fun in Greece!!

P.S. I'm already naturally tanned, what with being spanish and all, so that bathing suit would just hide my monstrosity. :)

kailani said...

People always tell me not to get the first edition of a new model. They say it takes about a year to work out all the bugs. However, if you want it, you should get it! How cool to have a new car!

Just Me said...

That's great that you're going to Greece! How fun!
I say, buy whatever car you want!! Why do other people even care what you drive anyway??

Have a great Thursday!!

Renee said...

With the recent gas prices I really want one of those flex fuel or hybrid vehicles. Dropping $50 for gas is heart breaking.

Good for you to still be working out. My eliptical is collecting dust.

Melli said...

Bet "the Guy" wishes he were a mosquito! (did I just SAY that?) LOL! I'm nost speaking to you for going to Greece without me... I just wanted you to know... Yea... I can be petty like that sometimes... You'll have to kiss up big time to win me back! I'm probably not worth the effort though... not as long as "the guy" is in the picture! ;)

Goofy Girl said...

Sounds like you've been keeping yourself busy! :) I'd say go for the new car if you can do it!

Red said...

Lots of things going on in Carmen-world at the moment, eh?

Glad to hear you are so happy about the guy... see? We all kept telling you, "He's out there" and what do you know? He was! Have a great time in Greece... we're still waiting to see you here in the UK, though! Is that ever going to happen?!? ;D

Cheysuli said...

I'm looking forward to hearing about Greece! How long? Where? How exciting!

Virginia, like the state! said...

I've been wanting to see Bourne Ultimatum! Hopefully I'll get to see that this weekend! Sounds like things are continuing to go well with the guy! Work events and furniture shopping, oh my! :) Yea!

Janet said...

"a carmen buffett" hehehe ;-)

What's an "America's Player"

Anthony said...

OK, so here's a dopey question: How can you get a haircut and "leave the length"?

OR, when is a haircut not a haircut?

mar said...

Janet and Anthony read my mind...

Pink Chihuahua Princess said...

If you are a Carmen buffet, then I'm a Pink Chi Princess buffet. Those critter eat me alive even if I'm just outside for a few minutes.

I just got my hair cut and permed. It sounds as if I'm happier with mine though.

Yay for booking Greece!

Hootin'Anni said...

Oh ya baby!! That Bourne Ultimatum was grand wasn't it? It was an 'edge of the seat' kinda thrilling ride!! And the camera effects on the 'car chases' showing from the driver's view? Awesome.

So, he's still 'the guy' and no initials for us, huh?!! Okay be that way. *giggles*

Darla said...

Oooh, have a great trip!

I think we'll be seeing Bourne Ultimatum next week. We finally saw PotC3 tonight. *sigh* There are a few drawbacks to being in Europe all the time. :)

colleen said...

Greece! I've never been and look forward to seeing some photos if you post some. Okay, you put me to shame. I'm going out to jump on the trampoline now.

Norma said...

I'm posting this in 2008 and since you've stopped blogging, things must be going well with you and THE GUY.
