October Update – November Goals 2020

Here’s how my October Goals went….

Publish one post on my blog a week

GOAL NOT MET: No excuse, just got lazy :/

To clean my car!

GOAL NOT MET: It rained a lot here in Florida so nature took care of my car this month. Ha!

Exercise

GOAL (KIND OF) MET: I walk at least 1.5 to 2 miles daily. I do leg and stomach exercises about 3 times a week. Haven’t gotten the yoga mat out yet but have seen a difference in my body with just the changes that I have made in my daily routine this month.

November Goals 2020

To make a beautiful and tasty turkey for Thanksgiving! That is all this month LOL.

Be safe and well!

October Goals – September Update 2020

Here’s how my September Goals went….

To plant oregano, parsley and cilantro in the pots that have dead plants in them #RIP

GOAL MET: I planted parsley and cilantro. I couldn’t find oregano seeds for some reason. BUT, in place of the oregano, I planted a salsa mix which contained, tomatoes, jalepeno peppers and green peppers. Making your own salsa is soooooooo much better than store bought. If you are starting off with a garden, I recommend planting veggies for salsa before anything else. As you can see, the salsa mix have yet to grow but hopefully there will be more progress when I do my October update.

To get more Vitamin D via sun

GOAL NOT MET: It’s just been two fricking hot for me to go out in this humidity. But by the looks of it, the first week in October should be niiiiiiice! Guarantee I’ll be soaking in some sun in October!

Get back to Yoga

GOAL NOT MET: Although I barely did any yoga this month, I did get some cardio in. I have been walking at least 1.5 miles to 3 miles, doing 20 crunches, 20 arm and shoulder exercises and 20 leg squats each day. I’m starting to see a difference in my body already and feel really good.

OCTOBER GOALS

Publish one post on my blog a week

I am soooo inconsistent with this blog! So my goal is, one post, once a week. It’s not like I don’t have stuff to say because there’s always weird crap going on in my head that I feel comfortable sharing, I’m just lazy. There I said it!

To clean my car!

Guys, the inside of my car is a total mess and it needs help. I just put 4 brand new tires on it and got it serviced. It’s got about 91,000 miles on it and drives like a champ, so it’s time for it to get a nice detailing.

Exercise

To continue with my exercise routine that I have now and maybe bump up the yoga.

September 2020 GOALS!

I’ve noticed over the years that I’m always a better, more efficient person when I write my goals down.  When I see them in black and white, it feels like it’s not just in my head, but something I have to prove to myself that I can do. Sometimes I reach the goals, sometimes I don’t but the important thing is that I write them down and try my very best to achieve them.

Each month I am going to post my goals for that month on this blog starting today! Okay, let’s get to the goals!

GOALS

To plant oregano, parsley and cilantro in the pots that have dead plants in them #RIP

It’s been sooooo hot in Florida that every time I go outside my face feels like it’s going to melt off so I have had no desire to be outside at all. My sinuses can’t take extreme humidity so I pretty much hibernate during the summer months and come out of hiding in September (ish).

The plants that have been in these pots have seen better days even though they’ve been watered regularly by the loads of rain that we have had this summer plus them being watered by hand. This month I’m tearing whatever is left of the plants and planting oregano, parsley and cilantro. I’ve grown herbs before and they do very well, it’s just hard to keep with them in the summer so this will be a September project.

To get more Vitamin D via sun

So as I mentioned above, me and humidity do not get along, but I do enjoy sun on my face and not being so pale! My goal is to get out in the sun at least 2 times a week for at least a half an hour. Vitamin D supplements are great for people and especially women, but, there’s nothing like straight up Vitamin D from the sun. As September rolls through, it will start to cool down just a little where it’s bearable, not to mention, fresh air!  Summers in Florida are constant AC. There’s no break! There’s no let’s open the windows to air out the house. Nope, AC 24/7. I am soooo looking forward to opening the windows soon!

Get back to Yoga

Damnit! I LOVE Yoga! I used to go to classes once a week. Absolutely LOVED it. Then my instructor cut down on her classes and mine was one that got cut. I think that may be 4 years ago? Something like that but since then I’ve probably done 8 downward facing dogs and 10 warrior poses in those 4 years! Pathetic. My goal in September is to put time aside to get back on the Yoga train. I am such a routine person that I KNOW once I get on the routine, it will be something that I do all the time. It’s just getting off my ass and doing it!

And that’s all ! I’m starting small so they will be attainable. If I can’t do this, I might as well hang it up!

I’m Back

Well it’s been a while since I’ve posted on my blog and during that time there’s been some crazy crap going on. Covid-19 has taken over our lives and has also taken some lives unfortunately. During this time, I’ve done a lot of thinking and realized a few days ago how much I hate that I’ve neglected this blog for so long. It wasn’t really on purpose because most of my posts are about trips I’ve taken or concerts that I’ve been to and since that is not happening right now in our world, I never thought to go back to my roots of posting my savings, my supermarket trips, how to save money, my garden, couponing, stock piling, food, drinks or anything else that does not involve concerts, sporting events or travel in general. Soooooo, I’ve said all of that to say this, after a long hiatus and beating myself up, I’M BACK!

Also, during this time, I have been working hard on Stacy’s Patio Tunes and learning so much about the radio/music business. When I was a kid, I always wanted to be a DJ. In fact, that is what I wrote as my “what I wanted to be when I grew up” answer in my 8th grade yearbook!  It ONLY took me 30 something years to actually DO something about one of these dreams of mine but someone took a chance on me, Cate Meighan, and after I had messaged her inquiring about how I could become a part of Boom Radio, which was totally out of my comfort zone by the way, she messaged me back, gave me the opportunity and I’ve been learning from her ever since. I’m forever grateful to her.

I also cannot forget to mention that we bought a few acres of land in North Georgia and I guarantee that there will be posts and videos as soon as we are able to get up there. This is our experiment to see how rogue we can go (with Wifi, of course!). We are not leaving our permanent residence but if the world keeps getting weirder and weirder, you never know!

Hope everyone is well and staying safe!

See ya soon!

4 Reasons Why I Am Not Going to the Motley Crue Stadium Tour

Some of my friends and people on social media have been asking me if I am going to the Motley Crue, Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett stadium tour so I decided to make a list of 4 reasons why I will NOT be spending my money on this tour.

1 – Although I am very much a fan of Motley Crue, Vince Neil lost his voice decades ago. I’ve spent my money to see them over the years and have left extremely disappointed. The band is great and they put on an awesome show, it’s just Vince. It’s a shame. And if you are reading this and saying “you’re wrong, he sounded great at the concert that I went to”, stop lying and let’s be honest, they should have gotten John Corabi to sing on this tour instead but what do I know?

2 – As much as I am a fan of Def Leppard and Poison, I have already seen them and although I have enjoyed their concerts in the past, I kind of wish that they went on tour without Motley in a smaller venue. I would drop good money just to see them play and attend meet and greets. Jumping on this stadium tour with Motley I think may do them a disservice because I know that there are people out there that feel the exact same way as me. As for Joan Jett, I’ve never seen her perform before but hope to see her at another time.

3 – I am unsure who did the planning for this tour but I think that it’s ridiculous that they are coming to Florida in the dead of summer when it is 100+ degrees and not to mention the fact that it storms every day in the summer. Very poor planning if you ask me. For example, NASCAR has been running, or shall I say ruining, their July races in Daytona for years and every year it’s hot as hell and every year it is delayed because of rain/thunderstorms. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that they should change the schedule around a little, but since they haven’t I guess they don’t care about their fans as much as lining their pockets. Same rings true for this stadium tour.

4 – Last but not least, didn’t the Crue have their final tour back in 2014-2015? Oh, and by the way, I didn’t go to that one because I knew better! I know that many other bands do this all the time and announce that it is their last tour only to come back years later to announce ANOTHER last tour and so on and so on and you know what, shame on them too! Not to mention that they suckered their fans to come to this last tour to only come back and want more of your money to listen to Vince unable to sing, AGAIN!

As I wrap this up, I didn’t post this to discourage you to NOT go to the concert but I wanted to share my feelings as to why I won’t be going to this concert. If you’ve never seen Motley live and decide to go please do not expect Vince to live up to any expectations that you may have of him. On another note, Nikki, Tommy and Mick are still amazing to see live so if you can get passed the horrendous singing, you may enjoy this one! I hate to be a Negative Nelly but when it comes to music, I call it like I see it!

Till next time, I’ll see ya soon!
