My weekend with Linds... but not really

Normally when my life gets stressful I take off and go to see Linds for the weekend. She always makes everything all better and I don't know how the heck she does it. I can't exactly do that anymore and I really needed it this weekend.

It turns out that there is an at home version that will suffice until I can get the time off work to have a for real one.

I started the day out with a Donut and a diet coke. A double D day if you will..

I took a super long bath with lots of bubbles, and candles.

I went and got a pedicure. (turns out I forgot I had a gift certificate.)

I went shopping, I bought the shirt I am sure Linds would have told me to get. It is more her than me but it does look fabulous on me. It's like I could hear her saying I deserved it.

I also bought a pair of shoes she would hate but that would defiantly be part of a weekend with Linds.

I went out for chinese food then came home and watched a movie in my pajamas.

It wasn't exactly the same because well i wasn't laughing until I hurt. But it did make me feel a little better about life in general. Thanks for the good times!

Oh I almost forgot... In order for it to be authentic I also listened to a lot of my favorite inappropriate non-country music. Yes Linds I even put in the summer of 04' soundtrack.

The greatest shopping adventure ever!

When did the DI go down hill? In college we went all the time! I have tons of things from the DI. But me and Katy went the other day to pass the time and we didn't find one thing that was worthy of a dollar! Check out some of the great things we found!

I think Steph might want this lamp actually.

I really really wanted this doll and Katy said no!
I guess it would be better if I just crocheted one for myself.

This is the jelly kind of candle with marbles in it! I wish I knew someone to buy this for!

Holy crap I found some great patterns! You're all getting one of these for your birthday.

Don't forget to pick up your Kenny Rogers CD on your way out!

Okay and I don't know what this is... But you could have it for 4 dollars!



I have never really liked milk very much. It isn't that I don't think it tastes good I just never crave it like most people. I never think man I could really use a big glass of milk. NEVER!

When mom died everyone was bringing truck loads of food to the house and we had a ton of milk. For some reason that week I could not get enough of it. When I went back to school a few weeks later I decided to buy milk for the very first time. Unfortunately I had never done this before so... When I took the groceries into the house I forgot the milk in the trunk. I just wasn't use to looking for it and I had a ton of camp chairs etc. back there to keep it well hidden. When did I realize I had milk in my trunk? Oh a good month or so later when it started to smell really really bad.

So to say the least I was not cured of my milk hatred like I thought I may have been. That smell still torments me. I may need therapy. I'm not kidding.

Anyway strangest thing... Last night at enrichment we were baking bread and they had a gallon of milk and the craving for it just hit me like a ton of bricks and I was on my second marvelous glass when the foulest odor I have ever smelled in my life wafted by my delicate nose. I had to run from the room to hide my gagging. To whomever the author of that traumatic smell was... Thanks for ruining milk for me! Secondly... Why couldn't you just leave the room for a second?

One more thing that bugs!

All of my comments were deleted from my last blog before I could read them. If you commented. Please comment again!


Things That Bug!

There are three things that will make me mad.

1. Being sushed

2. People picking on the people I care about

3. Okay I swear there was three but I can't remember what it is right now.

But there are few more things that just bug!

* I don't like it when I finally get a day to sleep in and can't sleep past 7.

* Why are bad smells always stronger than the good ones?

* If I wear white I ALWAYS spill something on myself

* I really don't like it when people tell me to smile. I smile ALL the time. If I am not something is really wrong and you aren't helping.

* How come my bed is more comfortable and always the perfect temperature when my alarm is going off for the third time.

* I also am really bugged when adult people chomp their gum!
