Good thing it was decaf!

Yesterday i decided to finish up the painting in the kitchen. The ceiling & wall coming into the kitchen from the stairs needed to be patched which meant I would have to redo the stripes. I had put the base coat on & now needed to put the frog tape on to do the stripes. Of course I didn't have enough tape so I needed to go to W*lmarts. I was in my workout clothes & hadn't showered but figured I would fit right in with the Saturday crowd. I put on a coat & scarf, pulled on a hat & off we went.

Popster dropped me at the door & went to get his truck washed. I ran around, picking up some groceries as well & headed for the "speed" (not)checkout. I was behind this strange looking character who had on glasses with the thickest lenses I have ever seen. He was so hyper & could not stand still. The line wasn't going anywhere & before long he started yelling at the top of his lungs "WHY DO YOU HAVE ALL THESE REGISTRIES (yes that's how he said it) IF YOU ONLY HAVE TWO OPEN?"  He then picked up a magazine & held it about an inch from his eyes swaying back & forth.  Then it was back to yelling or mumbling.

The funny part of the whole thing was the only thing in his cart was a giant container of decaffeinated coffee!  Can you imagine what he'd be like with a shot of caffeine???

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BIG BROTHER

Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.

MISTAKE #1

I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.

MISTAKE #2!

About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me something.....how did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in August......to wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.







Needless to say at that poin…

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"
