“More important than learning how to recall things is finding ways to forget things that are cluttering the mind.”
(I didn't know that Mrs.Butterworth had a son.)
I have bruised "snuggle pups" thanks to my brilliant decision to run without wearing proper running gear. I can't imagine what they'd feel like if they were actually full grown "snuggle pups". Normally I'm not thankful for being stuck with the runts of the litter but this time I'm pretty thankful for what I don't got.
Jacek had to pick out a toy to take for show-n-tell yesterday. He picked a new monster truck that his Aunt and Uncle had bought him for his birthday. On the way to school he asks, "Why didn't I get the other monster truck for my birthday? Ya know, the one with high torque?"
I turned down the radio a bit thinking I must have misheard him. "What'd you say bud?"
I want a monster truck with high torque!"
"What's high torque?", I questioned
"I dunno, something that makes you high and I want it!"
Don't you just hate it when you're all like spring cleaning and stuff and find so much stuff to get rid of that you end up with all this space that you now need to fill back up again? I just hate that!
I'm thinking this 3pc. bistro set would fill that space perfectly.
I just hate having reasons to go shopping!
I have a giveaway going on right now.It's a book, Three Cups, that is geared toward teaching children about money. Check it out HERE. There will be 2 lucky winners!! Good Luck!
-----And my double dip-----
1. Have you ever had a celeb sighting?
I don't think so although when we lived in Raleigh, NC Dawson's Creek filmed an episode there. My husband and I saw it as a feature on the 11'oclock news and (no kids back then) we were out the door and in the car. We drove around and around and yes, AROUND the location. Laughing our butts off and pretending we were seeing famous people..but I think we only glimpsed someone going into a trailer on set...so close!
2. What temperature do you keep your house?
It was set at 68 until we couldn't afford our electric bill anymore. It took me awhile of layering on layers but it's been between 64 and 66 ever since.
3. Do you notice dust at other peoples homes?
When I first read this question I snorted out loud. I was at a friends house last night and we were in the kitchen talking. (She might not be happy with me for writing this next line) I glanced up and above her was a fairly large cobweb gently swaying in the breeze she was creating below it. I laughed to myself because I have a similar kitchen cobweb in a corner that I could reach if I tried really hard but since I don’t want to, it’s still there… I suppose I could have told her that it was there but I didn’t. Partly because I think that may have been rude but also because I don’t think she’d really care. I wouldn’t care if someone pointed out mine so I doubt she would. In fact, I think she’d say, “whatever”.
4. What's the worst job you ever had?
I worked for the meanest woman in the world. She made me cry. She made me doubt myself every single day. She made me have anxiety attacks. She made that job the worst. She was a big catalyst in my decision to up and move from NY to NC. Being older now and looking back I CAN NOT believe that she would treat another woman the way she treated me and several others. I don’t know if she got a high from squandering and belittling us but she was really, really good at it. I just facebooked her...she adopted a child. I guess she can't be all that bad then, huh?
5. What is your most sentimental possession?
I have a faded stuffed animal owl that is more light blue then purple. It has hung from the rear view mirror in every vehicle I have owned since my Grandfather passed away. I won it at a carnival when I was 12. I gave it to him because the owl's beak had been sewn on upside down and I didn't like it. It hung from the rear view mirror of his Cadillac for almost 8 years.
