I'm tired. Oh so tired.

Get ready for picture overload......

So this morning I decided to do some weeding. I go out and I pull weeds for a while when the mailman comes by and stops in front of my house and he hands me a small package. I check the postmark and I realize that in my hands I am holding the oh so anticipated Talulabelle's necklace.

I immediately stop what I'm doing, rush inside and after my hands have been washed I tear off the kraft paper. There I see a tissue wrapped box with a couple laurel leaves and a small thank you card.

After the tissue paper was torn off I now find myself a beautiful sturdy red box with matching tie. I undo the bow and I finally open the box, remove some more tissue paper and I finally see it. My necklace. I was a bit confused when I noticed that it was plastic, but then again it never stated whether it was metal or plastic in the ad. I pulled it out and there were a couple links that had separated. I quickly fixed them and was finally able to put it on. It is beautiful, there's no doubt about that. I just wish it'd been metal but this way it is light around my neck. While wearing it though it would bunch up and some of the circles kept flipping over. I added a couple swivels and it helped. I am going to have to go out and buy a few more and add them throughout.

Well my day went on and at around 4pm I get a doorbell ring. I open it to find man standing there with two packages. OMG! The two pairs I ordered on Tuesday had arrived. Super Lightning fast!!! I got the e-mails late last night my orders had been shipped but I hadn't bothered to check them to see when they'd arrive yet. I got side tracked and completely forgot. I tried them on right away and I am in love. They are super hot and I paid almost nothing for the both of them. Woo-hoo!!

After I put my new boots away I went into the kitchen to peel 10 LBS of shrimp.

10 LBS!!!!!

I am so tired. I hate peeling and deveining shrimp. It is just so time consuming. Blah!! After that I went on to chopping the onion, grinding the catfish fillets and soaking everything in lemon juice. Done for now. Tomorrow I just need to drain most of the lemon juice and add the chopped tomato and cilantro. Then I mix it all up and done! Ceviche.

I decided to make it tonight because I anticipate a very busy day tomorrow getting everything ready for my father in laws party on Sat. has taken Friday off to help out. Or get in the way. We'll see.
