Gil's 55th birthday

My dear Gil celebrated his 55th on Friday. His wish was to visit the Georgia Aquarium. It's been open for several years now, but you know how it want to wait until the crowds die down before you shell out those dollars and go look-see.
Since it was Gil's birthday, he got in for free. Not only that, ke got a big round button to wear on his shirt,saying as much!
If you know me at all, you know there is nothing I like more than having my family members get attention showered on them on their big day. Why, I do believe that my husband & kids dread me being out with them on their birthday.
As we visited the various exhibits, each G.A. employee who crossed our path smiled brightly at Gil and exclaimed "Happy Birthday!"
It was fabulous!
After seeing this wonderful landmark, we had a very late lunch at The Varsity. Then we sought out a little shop I wanted to see. Didn't buy anything. I just wanted to see the shop.
All in all, a fun day!

It's 2012- New Year, New Me?

Not so far....
I'm off work today for the holiday. Don't plan to do anything except clean the house , especially after last night's harrowing season premier of "Hoarding: Buried Alive.
The homeowner/ mother ( I use the term "mother" quite loosely since this creature was not a mom to her 2 teenagers. She merely occupied space in the roach & spider infested hovel her children were forced to live in)
Dad had moved out & Sherry had custody, presumedly so she could collect the welfare & food stamps, along with her disability. You see, Sherry is lazy. I'm sorry, I mean she's disabled. She informed us that she has 13 illnesses. At least that's what I think she said. It was difficult to focus on her words due to the sheer anger forcing steam out of my ears every time she opened her mouth.
Since I basically can't talk about this creature who bears a striking resemblance to the critters that took over her home for another minute, let me suggest you watch it yourself.
Google- Hoarding: Buried Alive Roaches.
( I have a new iPad & haven't learned all it's tricks yet, sorry.....)
Spoiler alert! It DOES have a positive ending.
