Just shoot me ....why don't you!

One of the things I have become very good at is never completely finishing anything I do.  I guess I must look at it as "insurance" as in that I am "needed" to finish whatever it may be!

Anyhoo I had not completely finished decorating the christmas excuse was I couldn't decide whether or not to put on garland or maybe drape ribbons on it so consequently I left it until I could decide(that's my excuse & I'm sticking to it).

Yesterday I had a revelation as to how I wanted to do it & off I went to Michaels.  I am very "anal" about always locking my car & also about putting the keys in my right pocket of whatever I'm wearing.  I wandered around the store for about an hour & collected up all the components I needed to finish the tree & also could not resist going thru the yarn dept only to find there's a sale so I'm totally "psyched" because I got the perfect yarn for some projects I had in mind.  I check out & am carrying my 3 bags of "loot" which I proceed to throw into the passenger seat. I was totally "not in the moment" because I thinking about "stuff" I'm going to make. 

I go to put the keys in the ignition only to discover I have NO KEYS!!!   Part of being anal is when I'm leaving a store I fish out the keys & hook them over my finger so I can hit the button to unlock the car without having to put down whatever I'm carrying!  Now I am sitting in my car & don't even remember unlocking the freekin car cus I was so busy gloating over my bags of loot!!  I tore my purse apart,  I checked every place in the car, on the floor, under the seats....NO KEYS!  I then get out of the car & crawl around on the wet ground looking under the car, walk all the way back to the store....NO KEYS!

Now I'm getting frantic as I don't even know where my spare key to the car is,  so I go back to the car & tear everything apart again including the bags of "loot".  I had bought glittery ribbon &  dried german statice which is now all over the front seat of my looked like a bomb of glitter & fluff went off.  After searching the bags 3 times I found the keys tangled up in the yarn!

Now 20 mins  & a complete meltdown later I drive home!

I you need me I'll be laying on the couch sucking my thumb!



  1. Oh good grief. I hate losing my keys it's really unnerving.

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.


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


About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me 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 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…


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

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!"

Love Val
