As we were walking through the mall the other night, Hubby stops, turns to me and says, "You DO realize that shoes are your kryptonite, right?"

I have no idea what he's talking about, but they're having a killer sale at Nine West!!

Stale Status Updates

So Hubby's beloved Macbook Pro has been suffering from the dreaded "green screen of death."  Being a PC gal myself, I *THINK* that's the same as the infamous "blue screen of death," but who cares?  It all equals the same thing - I haven't been online in a few days to update my Facebook status (the horror).  Hubby got the desktop up and running, so I sat down tonight ready to go.  But then I realized something....FB users generally have the attention span of a gnat.  Status updates are the equivalent of old-school Henny Youngman type comedian's one-liners.  Who ever clicks "read more" anyway?  I rarely do.  But since we all know I crack myself up, I came here instead.  No one reads this blog anymore, but that's OK.  *I* can go back and read it, and since I laugh to keep from crying (no seriously, I do), re-reading this someday just MIGHT make me look back on this week of hell fondly.  But I doubt it....

So here, in no particular order, are my "Wannna-be/Should have been" FB status updates from the last several days:

1) Why is it that when you have been given several gift cards to Lowes, the only items you need are at Home Depot?

2) Dear 500 pound woman riding the handicapped cart around Walmart - Steer away from the Twinkies, Little Debbies, bags of M&M's, jumbo bags of cheese puffs and family-size BBQ chips that are filling your basket!  Seriously, would a fruit or vegetable really hurt you?

3) So you grab the "easy to install" shelving unit in Home Depot and the installation instructions say "additional hardware needed for hollow door installation" and yet it doesn't specify WHAT additional hardware is actually NEEDED??  I'll tell you what I need...more wine.

4) I have an issue with spices - I have too many of them.  So shoot me, I love to cook.  There is no need to point out that I haven't used several said spices since 2010 just because you saw the purchase dates that I dutifully mark them with.  Luckily, they have the spice racks/shelves that fit our cabinets at Walmart!

5) My Hubby texted me this afternoon to tell me that I really need to go back to work.  Apparently I can't stay out of Home Depot and Walmart and am straining our budget.  Seriously?

About Me: I'm the mom of three: #1 Son (20), The Princess of Wails (17) and their baby brother - The Baby (6). I was a grad-student working on an MA in history until we were surprised - I mean blessed - with The Baby. I'll get back to it...someday (the thesis, not the kid - I have no choice concerning the kid). I am one of only a few people I went to school with who is actually using their history degree in my career (and to think my Father called it Basket-weaving!). I live a very hectic life amongst massive clutter. I call it a good day if we have managed to get home at night without losing one of the kids (no matter how hard I try!). Friends say I have a humorous take on life's happenings. The sad part is that what I write about is true. I laugh to keep from crying.
