I Don't Want to Keep Up With the Kardashians

Exactly what my title says...I do not want to keep up with the Kardashians.

Now I do not watch Keeping Up With the Kardasians nor do I really follow any of them.  However, because they are in the public eye I do know some about them and know who they are if someone is talking about them. I am more of a Real Housewives girl, that is my secret pleasure.

Today it was announced that Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from her husband of 72 days, Kris Humphries.  For some reason this really burns me.  They spent 10 million dollars on a wedding, the wedding was a televised special and they file for divorce 72 days after they married.  Apparently they filed because they could not agree with one another on where to live.  He wanted to settle down in Minnesota and she wanted to stay in L.A. I feel like they just made a mockery of marriage.  Am I wrong?

Here are some of  my reasons:

1. You have only been married for 72 days, this was not some quickie Vegas wedding or even a quickie wedding.

2.  You spent 10 million dollars on a wedding, just to file for divorce 72 days later?  If I were her parents I would be sooooooooo mad at her. Heck, I would be mad at myself!

3. Things like where you live, children, religion, ect. should be discussed before you get married.

4.  Marriage is not always easy, you have to work at it and communicate with one another. If you love someone you try to work it out.

5.  If you have money like they do, why don't you compromise and split your time between the two places.  Buy two homes one in each place.  This is not rocket science.  

So I have to ask...Why?

A.) Was this a publicity stunt?  After all they did get paid for it to be televised...

B.) Are they really that in to themselves that they do not know how to compromise?

C.)  Do we feel bad for them because they realized they were making a mistake but unfortunately took it too far and did not know how to get out of it?  They are in the public eye so maybe this is plausible, maybe they just had to live a huge embarrassing moment in front of the whole world, whereas others who are not in the public eye could get a divorce and no one would ever know.

D.) Are they morons?

E. ) None of the above ?

F.) All of the above?

So please feel free to comment.  You know what my feelings are.  I would love to know what yours are.

By the way here is my disclaimer.  I am not in any way judging individuals who get a divorce.  Marriage is between the couple that is married.  Their struggles are just that, their struggles and what goes on in a marriage is private.  My issue is the quickness of the divorce, the reasoning (without any appearance of trying to work it out) and the amount of money they spent on the wedding.

Stir Crazy!

Lately I have been going stir crazy and I have felt cooped up.  I attribute these feelings to the lack of socialization  that I have had lately and that fact that I have been cooped up.  I believe that some of this stems from the fact that I now work from home three days a week, due to the bridge being shutdown.  Now I am in no way complaining about working from home because I do enjoy it, it is just that when you work from home you do not see anyone.  Sorry Tinsel but you do not count as human interaction since you are a cat.  Although I do know that she enjoys me working from home.  :-)

Some of the other reasons would probably be that my husband has been sick the last few weekends so we have been stuck inside on the weekends and I am stuck inside during the week, so it was driving me crazy.  Now I know that I can go out without my him and I do but since he was feeling very under the weather I stayed home and took care of him.  Last reason would be that he has classes some nights during the week so I am bored at home.  I really need to find a hobby or sign up for a class!  Again, I am not complaining, I am very proud that my husband is back in school and doing very well.  I am simply stating why I have been bored, ect.

So since my husband knows me so well and knew that I was going stir crazy he planned a surprise for me this weekend.  Drum roll please...

He planned an overnight getaway in downtown Louisville.  Priceline I love you!!!

He can read me so well and knew that I needed to get out so he booked a night at the Hyatt in downtown Louisville.  I guess he planned all of this on Friday before he went to class.  He even went to the florist and ordered a beautiful flower arrangement to give to me on Saturday.

So on Saturday we got up and worked around the house some, went to lunch at the Olive Garden and ran some errands.  As we were headed back home we pulled up to the florist.  I asked why we were there and he said that he had an order to pick up.  I was so surprised that he had gotten me flowers!  They are very beautiful and I absolutely love them.  Then we went home and packed for my surprise night downtown.

We had a wonderful and relaxing night and enjoyed our dinner at the Sports and Social club at Fourth Street Live.  The hotel was right next to Fourth Street Live and the weather was not bad for a quick walk over there.

Then on Sunday we enjoyed breakfast at Einstein Bagels and quick dip in the pool and the hot tub at the hotel.  Then sadly it was time to check out.  However, our weekend adventure was not over.  Next stop Louisville Mega Cavern to use our Groupon.  Since tomorrow would be the last day to use it we went and got our tickets and then went to Chilis for lunch.  He had not been to Chilis for a long time and really wanted to go.  So we enjoyed our lunch and then it was back to Louisville Mega Cavern for our tram tour.

The tour was awesome!  It last for about 70 mins. and you are pulled by a jeep.  It was really neat to learn about the history of the cavern.  I am so glad we went and would recommend it to anyone!

So tomorrow it is back to the real world.  I had a wonderful weekend and I am blessed to have a wonderful husband!  I feel very relaxed and I am ready for the hectic work week ahead.

So I sign off of here feeling less stir crazy and very relaxed.  Now to find a hobby...

Bad Blogger

So I guess it has been awhile since I have posted on my blog.  Bad, bad blogger.  We have had some adventures but I guess sometimes life is so crazy and hectic that I just do not sit down to take the time to update my blog.  Work has been very busy and Mike has started back to school and is busy with work as well

Maybe I should rename my blog to life adventures, not just local adventures.  I might seriously give this some consideration. Sometimes life is an adventure itself.

My husband and I did not really go anywhere new this weekend but we did have a new adventure of sorts.  We took my three little cousins out to McDonald's for lunch after Church on Sunday.  They are awesome little girls with their own little personalities and they are always such a joy to spend time with.  It was our first time taking all three of them out and it was a success.  We had a great time and I think that they had a good time too!  They sure do have their unlce wrapped around their little fingers.  Especially the little one.

That was our weekend, sometimes it is the little things in life that are so enjoyable.
