Fun Things

  • I have a heel spur on my left foot. Oh the pain. There is nothing so humbling as walking like a very elderly person at the ripe old age of 36. Just the first few steps, then the pain sort of numbs a bit.
  • My favorite soap lady, The Foil Hat, has the nerve to decide to call it quits. AND, we don't have the extra money to make the kind of order I want to make. (The kind that would get me through the next fiveyears. Go on, go buy some!!
  • Okay, this one IS fun, except for the topic. Because it would be fun to win a prize. Pioneer Woman has a contest going and it doesn't involve coming up with a catchy little caption for a photo.
  • McCain and Obama both stink. Obama with his smugness and McCain saying the same thing over and over made for a really bad debate. I just keep saying, "Is this what America has come to? Is this the best both parties could come up with?" I still really love Palin but I finally watched some of her interviews and they are REALLY bad: TOTALLY poor-Carolina-beauty-pageant-girl-that I won't-name-because-I-think-she-is-finally-forgotten BAD. I will still support her with my vote and a sticker on my mini-van.
  • I finished Something Borrowed and Something Blue by Emily Giffin and I can't wait to finish the series!! First though, I have to finish a book I will mention when I finish it.
  • Lilly locked my keys in the van today at my Mom's. She did it on purpose too-the way my van is wired makes you have to work really hard to lock yourself out. She couldn't tell me why she did it, but assures me it is a once-in-a-lifetime thing that will never happen again. (At least the "on purpose" part, I hope).
  • I'm sorry Hula, but I gotta say it, loud and happily: I LOVE FALL!!!!! We do so much fun stuff this time of year and I love sweatshirts (especially my gray one-the one I posted about) and I love being cool at night!! I love the lower humidity!! I love bonfires and campfires. I love no bugs-or at least fewer bugs. FALL, YOU ROCK!!

Interesting tidbits make for a good post. I know a good soap lady when you need one. Hope the heel spur is better soon.

* I totally understand...If someone sees you walking like an elderly person, just tell them that this walk is all the rage with the runway models in Paris.;)

* I entered that Pioneer Woman contest too. I really, really want to win it too. I probably won't, but I want too! I'm tired of losing.

* I love, love, love Emily Giffen! I just know if I ever met her we would be great friends. Once she realized I was NOT a scary stalker type.;)

* I love the fall too! I love not breaking out into a sweat when I take Allie out to use the bathroom. And the colors. And the Peanuts Halloween special that will be coming on soon.;)

God Bless,

I understand I'm in the minority on the fall thing. It's my flawed way of thinking. I'm working on that...slowly...and stubbornly. I did smile at the turning leaves the other day before I could help myself. Does that count?

I'm so sorry about your spur. Maybe if you get one on your other foot you can be a cowboy......
As for fall....I LOVE IT!! I will say it loud and proud...except for the part about not being able to afford to go to the pumpkin patch : (
Bad Lily Bad

I'm with ya on McCain/Obama. The choices stink.

And the worst thing about fall is that it leads to winter, which turns into January, aka colder than a dogs butt month.......ugh!!

I do love fall tho, just wish it didn't lead to 4-5 months of bitter cold.....
