Today I am thankful for…

  • My daughter.   She challenges me every day.   She makes me smile.
  • A hot shower.
  • Toilet paper
  • My mother’s love for me.

What are you thankful for today?

Dear Pothole Street Department,

When it snows 5 inches, that is when it is time to get out the snow plows and the salt.

Plow my street then.

Do not wait till 4 days later when everything has been packed down into ice, and plowing does absolutely no good whatsoever.

Also, if it snows only about an eighth of an inch, like yesterday, my street doesn’t need plowed and salted 3 times.


I could do a MUCH better job


Now, on to the questions.

  1. When did you last feel you were required to jump through meaningless hoops to get something you wanted?
  2. What kinds of hula hoop memories do you have?
  3. How do you feel about basketball?
  4. What do you think of hoop earrings?
  5. What’s your favorite Whoopi Goldberg movie?


1.   Yesterday when I was doing my taxes.

2.  I stunk really bad.

3.  Blech!!!

4.  I love hoop ear rings, but not the humongous ones.

5.  I don’t much care for Whoopi, plus she doesn’t have eye brows…ewwwwwwwwww!

Do you remember around the middle of last October when I showed you this.

Then the next day we purchased this, because Superman had to have a way to work, but it spent the next 3½ weeks in the shop.

Around the end of December we purchased this, because the boy’s car decided it just couldn’t take living any more, so he was using the green car, Superman was driving this, and all was right with the world.

Last night I got a phone call from the boy…

and oh!   you know where this is heading.

He hit a deer.

A big deer.

I told him his next vehicle had better be an M-1 Abrams.

PS.   He is just fine.

Today’s TWD selection of Cocoa-Nana Bread came from Steph of Obsessed with Baking.

And I didn’t make it.

I just couldn’t get passed the whole chocolate bread with banana’s in it.

It just kind of makes my tongue go ewwwww, however if you like the whole chocolate/banana combo, go check out Steph’s blog, she has the recipe.

Instead, I’d like to show you one of my Christmas presents.

Gigantor Reeses Peanut Butter Cups.

They are seriously 4″ in diameter and 1″ thick.

And they will take even the most serious chocolate lover an entire week to eat just one.

They make me happy that chocolate and peanut butter go together.

My girl is just fickle.

Fickle, fickle, fickle!

Over a year ago, she insisted that she have short hair, and would I please, please, please cut it for her.

So I did, then I took her to my hair dresser to fix my botch job.

Then she wanted the style changed, and she wanted bangs, and would I please, please, please cut it for her.

So I did, and promptly took her to my hair dresser to fix my botch job.

Then she decided that she wanted a different look, but I learned my lesson~~I’m quick like that~~and took her straight to my hair dresser.


Now she wants to grow her hair back out.

I wonder how long it is going to take after she grows it out for her to want it short again.

A friend of mine posted a “I’m thankful for ” ….on her blog, and I thought I’d do the same.

Today I’m thankful for

  • hot water
  • the fact that it is raining and not snowing
  • Reeses peanut butter cups
  • clean laundry
  • and last but not least, you Internet.

What are you thankful for today?
