Sir, Can I Get a Picture Of Your Lovely Hat?

4 Mar

Today’s day started with two early soccer games for my middle son.  We had to be on the road by 6am to get Roo Dog to his 7:45am game.  I’m a morning person so it wasn’t horrible.  Plus, I never have to drive.  Mick prefers we get to our destinations safely so he always opts to drive.  I should be offended but I know it’s true. 

Very comfortable.

After Roo’s game, the three of us made a stop at IHop on our way home.  Conversation with Roo flowed…

I’m not a huge breakfast person, so I had lunch instead.  I was excited for my loaded bake potato soup and my 1/2 of a pot roast sandwich.  It was super heavy and stuck to the bottom of my stomach.  Mistake.

Roo asked, "you didn't really just take a picture of your food, did you?".

Other bloggers post pictures of their food and it make me drool.  My pictures look gross.

My wonderful husband (he looks a little bloated in this picture).

While eating, my eyes kept going back to this guy’s hat. 

It was a purple/pink knit.  I’m not sly because I swear the people at the table were giving me the “stink eye” as we left the restaurant.  Now, I wear stupid crap all the time.  If I wear stupid crap, I figure people are going to take my picture.  They don’t but they could. 

Not sure why Roo didn't want to eat his breakfast hot dogs?! Blech!

My FIL’s been out of the hospital since Tuesday, Feb 28th.  He’s living it up in a new rehibilitation facility.  It smells and looks very nice.  It’s nothing like the creepy hospital.  We watched a little of the State BB game with him before heading out to Chili’s for dinner.  Why Chili’s?  I had a gift card.  Who Girl and I always order a meal each and then switch halfway through.  Deelish!  Us two gals enjoyed Sante Fe Chicken Wrap and Crispy Shrimp Tacos (heavy).  I love splitting my meals with someone else. 

After leaving the restaurant and dismissing the boys (we drove two cars), Who and I went to Marshall’s in search of a new table for my bedroom.  Instead of a table, I found a faux leather rectangular ottoman that opened.  Nice, I can put our blankets in there instead of stuffing them under the bed.  I only want dust bunnies under my bed.  I didn’t mean to wander through the rest of the store but I did and I found a Kenneth Cole purse for $35. 

My cheap Acer computer (2 1/2 years old) died yesterday (after I dropped it on the floor).  Junk!  Who Girl tried to convince me to get an Mac like hers but I’m too cheap.  I hate buying insurance and I know I could ruin the replacement computer so I didn’t want to spend a lot of $$.  I ended up getting another cheap computer.  I got a Lenovo (made by IBM). 

When I got home at 8pm, I jumped on my elliptical for 70 minutes.  My feet were numb but it counted as a workout.  YAY ME!

I was craving something sweet so I had a bowl of Fruit Loops.  Yes, I have that kind of crap in my house.  Actually, we have a lot of junk in our house.  To even it up, I had a super healthy piece of bread with all kinds of crap (oatmeal, wheat germ, quinoa, mouse turds and who knows what else) slathered with super natural peanut butter.  Good stuff. 

Tomorrow, 7pm will come and go.  I’ll be sitting in my car in a parking lot (as my boys will be at soccer practice) while others enjoy the Zumba class that I can’t go to because I bought a punch card without looking at the days classes would be held.  SMART ONE ALERT!!!!!!! (that’d be me)

Silly Me…

THUNK THUNK THUNK!

That’s my elliptical machine for you.

At 7pm, I did 70 minutes on the elliptical.  It should have been a crime because Michigan was strangely warm for this time of year.  It was 53 and sunny and I chose to be inside.

I ended up taking Brucee to a 3:20pm movie.  We saw Underworld.  Loved it!  Come on.  You had to expect that.  I love everything I see.

I do love vampire crap.  I do.  I do.  Not so much Twilight vampires though.  Twilight is too thirteen year old for me.  That’s just my opinion.  I did like the books in that series though.  I know I’m not consistent with my opinions.  So it is.

I took Brucee to the movies because he’s sad that his candy and popcorn days are over for the next 2 to 4 years.  He gets braces tomorrow morning.  Poor little bugger.

What the heck and I going to do for the hour and 1/2 or so that it takes to put those suckers on him?  Marshalls?  Ulta?  Target? Maybe…

CONFESSION… I’m a reality TV junky.  Tonight I watched Dance Moms.
