Someone Threw Up…

13 Nov

While everyone in my house slept in, I met up with family for breakfast and then on to church with my mom and sisters.

I picked up Brucee from one of his friend’s house.  How convenient.  Brucee’s buddy lives by the country store.  I like the drink Twisted Tea and this country store is the only local store that I know that sells it.  I  bought two packs…

Please know that I buy a lot of alcohol but I barely ever drink it (once every 3 weeks?!).  I just happen to talk about it a lot.

We have a Hallmark store in our town that’s been there for years (1928?!).  About this time, every year, they have their holiday open house.  They have reindeer outside the store.  I managed to walk through some of their pee.


Yummy punch and cookies…

I love their upside-down Christmas tree (sorry, it’s blurry).  It’s not for sale but I wish it were.

I used to like bringing my kids because they’d get the chance to sit on Santa’s lap.

We never stay that long and it’s more of a social thing then anything else.  Good stuff.

Mick decided it was a good night to take the boys for a birthday dinner.  We’ve already had two birthday meals for them.  I wasn’t going to fight it because I didn’t want to make dinner.  Mick chose the same sushi place The Who and I went to yesterday.  We didn’t fess up because we can’t get enough sushi.  Two times in one weekend.  I’m so lucky.  Not so lucky though because on the way home, someone threw up.  Oops.


This Is Not A Food Blog….

18 Oct

No run today.  And, 70 to 100% chance of rain between now and tomorrow night.  I won’t let that deter me.  I’m hoping to run tomorrow morning.  We’ll see.

Shelly’s Current Events:

  • Even though I swore off marathons for the rest of my life, I’m already thinking about my next one (only 2 days to get over the trauma of Sunday’s run).
  • I will finish eating something even if it’s not that great tasting?!  Why do I do this?
  • I hate the smell of the hospital.
  • I love the peanut butter cookies they have at the hospital (90 cents  = POW!!).
  • I’m looking to hire a new Lawn Ranger because the current one never mows our lawn (that would be me).
  • Roo Dog (15 1/2 yr old son) has made the Duncan Hines Cinnamon Swirl Muffins 4 times (yes, I’ve bought 4 boxes) within the last 7 days.  He’s trying to perfect them.  Each time he makes one less mistake.  Good lesson for him on why he should follow the directions.

  • I’ve eaten at least 5 cinnamon swirl muffins in the last 7 days.
  • I’ve been told that I can be annoying.  As if!!
  • I don’t care if strangers think I’m annoying.  I only care what my family and close friends think.  Wait a minute!  A few of my family and friends are the ones that said I can be annoying?!  Sha!
