10 Random Things for a Friday

  1. Tuesday was my niece Emma's birthday. I can't believe she is 3!! What a miracle.
  2. The question of the week is "Wine or Chocolate?"
  3. I found THIS BLOG and spent way too much time on it the other night. It makes me want to write a love note on a random wall. Fav - "Just because today is a terrible day doesn't mean that tomorrow won't be the best day of your life. You just have to get there."
  4. Sometimes I just feel like doing a somersault. Not that I do. Because it is usually somewhere silly like in Target in the clearance aisle or at work walking through the board room. That and I'm not sure I'm even CAPABLE of doing a somersault anymore.
  5. Pepsi Throwback while not a subsitute for Mexican Coca Cola is pretty darn good.
  6. My payroll check this week is check number 40646. Said check is already fully obligated.
  7. When we ate Chinese on Monday Little One ate all of the fortune cookies. Careful to not eat the paper. When I read her the fortunes she told me, "I already knew that. Maybe you should get a different cookie."
  8. My Grandma Rachel died 2 years ago this week. It seems like less than that. But it seems like longer. Amazing how much different things can be 2 years later. I miss her.
  9. Did I tell you about the onion rings we made last week? They rivaled the onion rings we use to get at the Ice Cream shop in Monticello. the BOMB!!! Here is the recipe. If I already told you about them... pretend than I owe you another random thing.
  10. My home has become appliance hell. Something is wrong with my refridgerator. When I take things out of the freezer and put them in the fridge to thaw... they don't. 3 days later the chicken legs for tonight's supper were still frozen. We've messed with the temp and cleaned the fans and it still doesn't work right. The washing machine is on it's last leg but if you don't do full loads it's ok. That and it's leaking small amounts of water from somewhere. And then the dryer started whining last night. Bearing noise I do believe. I need to call Kurt and see if he'll come fix them all. Me thinks this will be an expensive venture. And just to let you know, we are now accepting Lowe's gift cards. Donations go directly to the appliance hell memorial fund. As you plan your giving keep us in mind. It's a good cause.

Happy Memorial Day weekend. As you enjoy the long weekend, remember why we celebrate it.
