There are days that I wish I could get away with taking a whole stack of donuts. I was on a Celiac diet while pregnant with my son, and I dreamed in gooey detail about Krispy Kreme glazed donuts....OH.MY....gonna drool on my MacBook... Just to show you that men really don't understand cravings...my Loverbrains asked me why dreaming about them in detail didn't help me...uh, yeah...like smelling and licking one would help too?!!
I did one of those super dumb things this morning. I took my two children out to do errands...while my youngest is still struggling with a double ear infection and pink eye. Okay, before anyone yells he's been on antibiotics for 48 hours...so I didn't expose anyone! About half way through he melted down. Poor thing. Dumb MomE! Two totally random things are connected to this teary, clingy outing though so...I digress...
I was hunting the dollar stores for colanders. Why? Well, Loverbrains and I decided to do the Global Bucket method of gardening this year. I especially love the "self watering" aspects of this method. You really should check it out. On the advice of my friend (Hi Kerry) I even hunted around the fast food joints to gather FREE 5 gallon buckets. On a random sidenote: Most places looked at me like I had three heads and one guy asked me if I realized they sold them at Walmart for $3. I said, "Yes, and these are....FREE!!" Anyhew...as you'll see from the website you can either put two buckets inside each other or put a colander in the bottom. Loverbrains preferred the latter method because it forms it's own wick. I went to Walmart...they are $5 apiece...yikes-ers says the Frugal Bobbi...so off to dollar store. I did find them at the third dollar store I tried...woohoo!
On my way out of the last dollar store...the store where I finally allowed my melting down crew to buy toys...I was in one of those situations where I parked next to someone who was trying to leave at the same time. You know, where you have to really hustle your kids into the car so they can open their car door and get in? It was a teenager with a little babe in a pumpkin seat carrier. She smiled sweetly and said she was in no hurry. Then (prepare for randomness ya'll) she said she was surprised I had two...since I looked so young. Obviously, she is regarding me as a peer. And then, in my shocked and frazzled (probably not enough coffee) state...I started to giggle. She looked surprised and I told her that I was 30...yeah...THIRTY!!! She said that I looked just like one of her friends from high school (I think she was in high school)...I sweetly told her "thanks" but I'm not sure I am thankful. Gosh, I hope that I handle my children with more finesse than a teen. I was wearing jeans and a polo shirt...with makeup and hair done, ya'll. Maybe I need to find an older look. Ack...I don't know....how would ya'll have taken it??
What thinkest thou on this random day that's in desperate need of an iced coffee.
Well, my bathrooms and floors are clean....and my random post is complete...and off to make an iced coffee I go....Hope your weekends are absolutely fabulous!!
