Discovering Donna

Wait- Did I actually have FUN???

Posted in Life by Donna on June 23, 2009

There is a suprise for you.  I had a fun weekend.  That has so not been the case lately.  It’s hard for me to feel like I’m having fun.  Now I did have fun when I went to the Reagan museum.  But this was a nice weekend all around.  Saturday we took Greg to Forever Hollywood to watch The Graduate and had a picnic.  It was suprising to see how many people turned out.  Sunday we did NOTHING!!!  That was even better!!!  Friday I went to the doctor and had my follow up and I now have a plan.  Sort of.  It’s a rough draft but it’s better than nothing. 

I’m thinking I might even have fun this weekend too.  Not sure what all is planned but I’m going to enjoy it.


How about you?  How is your life?

Name that Emotion for $100, Alex

Posted in Life by Donna on June 9, 2009

So I am feeling something lately, what it is, I don’t know.

I can say it’s unhappiness, dissatisfaction, frustration, depression, etc.  But I can’t say that it’s specifically one of those emotions.

I want more of something but what that something is I don’t know.  I feel like the only real thing to do is change me first and then go from there.  Ok- So I started with the hair, incase you don’t already know, I’m a blonde.  So my next adventure is to get the female issue somewhat straightened out and then get my weight straightened out.

But past that, I’m a blank.  There is so much I want to do but I can’t just put a finger on it.

Do you ever just have one of those days?

Warning–Female on Her Soapbox

Yes Folks, that’s right, I’m on my soapbox AGAIN!

Today’s subject:  People who just don’t give a crap about others property.

Example #1:

(This is an actual conversation)

Teenager: *leans back on chair at kitchen table and it creaks and sounds like it’s about to break* not to mention it’s right in front of a window 3 stories high–

Adult-Dude- how about you not lean on that for me.

Teenager-Why, it’s not yours

Adult-Actually it is.  It was given to us by your parents.  So you break it you buy it.


Adult-It sounds like it’s going to break, one already has, please put all four legs on the floor.  That was your great grandmothers.

Teenager-No it wasn’t.

Adult-Fine, it was your grandmother’s your father’s mom.  So have some respect.

Teenager-But she wasn’t my grandmother.  So much much?


Teenager- You said you break it you buy it, how much?

By this time, frankly, I’m livid that I’ve been disrespected in my own home, but more so livid that he’s chosen to disrespect his own family.  I let it go for the time being, I advise the hubby who says he can’t do anything about it, that’s a dad issue.  He does however tell the teenager, how upset that I am for being dissed.  So he comes back and apologizes but the sincerity is not felt.  He said what he did with a very serious straight face and then comes back and says he was only joking.  Yeah right.  I’m still livid over that, but I’m letting it go.  After this blog post that is

Situation #2 not giving a crap about other’s property.  And Ladies, this is to you!  How about when we have a restroom that is shared between two offices on one floor we flush???  It’s just one extra step in the whole process.  It seems every day I go into the bathroom at work and at least 1 toliet has not been flushed and it’s only been peed in.  Please ladies, they provide seat covers and everything imaginable in there for us for free.  The only thing I would ask is you show them the same respect you would if you go into someone’s home.  I mean seriously, would you go to your mother’s house or best friend’s house, use their facilites and not flush???


Ok- so what say you about this?  Come on, let’s hear it!!!

The progress of the lists

Posted in Life by Donna on June 7, 2009

I haven’t really updated that much in a while have I?

I’ve been to Dave and Buster’s (not impressed) and to the Reagan Library (very impressed).

I’m also trying to decide how much I want to revamp them again.  Learning to love you more is no longer taking submissions so that would be something I would look at changing.  I just have this idea that I want to do for my life and for the list-It’s just a matter of actually doing it.  Maybe it would be good to map it out first…

What do you think???
