THE GOINGS ON


Well it's official - I'm back in lonely world once again. My mom just left yesterday morning to go home. We were lucky to guilt her to staying an extra few days. No I don't feel badly that I did it. LOL. Unfortunately it RAINED all week-end. I don't mean itty bitty little rain - we hit the record high for our area from the last 150 years!! Dang seriously - I'm sick of rain! We haven't sat on the new deck since it was finished. We have a gang of robins in our backyard eatting worms. It's like old school back there... busting a beak in their slimy asses.

We did manage to make it over to Calgary Zoo on Friday - before it started to pour. Lucky. The afternoon was a wash (literally) so mom and I hit the mall where I bought yet ANOTHER purse. OK seriously - intervention time. I have 12 now I think. I also bought a new wallet. It was funny, mom told me "go ahead, it's not like Jarrett will notice anyways." I told her oh yes he will. She assured me husbands NEVER notice these things. The next day we're in the car, he looks over and says, "When did you buy that? Did you buy that yesterday with your mom?" LOL. I TOLD her!!! He just shakes his head, asks how many is that now, shakes head again. I told you purses are like crystal meth to me.

I also picked up some shorts, some cute tank tops, some Vichy stuff... I was even nice enough to use one of my 2-for-1 deals and bought my sister a tank. I can be very nice when I want to be. I've also found that I love Starbucks' strawberry and creme smoothies. Like a lot!! Not good (for my ass I mean). Saturday, Jarrett took us all out for lunch, then we went and got my deck umbrella. He hates it - that's fine. I love it! LOL. I know, I know it's "just" an umbrella. I also bought some minature rose bushes... stage yet another invention. I heard Jarrett grown from afar, "Dang, MORE flowers?" I wish I could do a grand total of how much I've spent this year. But in my defense... most are perrenials ok?

Yesterday was kinda sucky. It poured - the kind of weather that is only fit for sleeping except you have three kids that don't respond to weather in that way. After they gave daddy their presents, we went out for lunch, then party shopping for the twins' big birthday bash this coming week-end. We postponed it until now - since some friends of ours couldn't attend until then. We even hired a clown (blah clowns creep me out). So they choose Curious George as a theme (shut up Janis lol). Hopefully the weather holds out. My dear darling husband will be gone 3 days this week. This sucks - I can't sleep when he's out of town. I get all psycho and imagine all the bad things that could happen to him and to us. I have issues didn't you know?

Well I should go. Kierra just walked by and she stuff herself into Karis' tights. I don't know how she did it... she's talented I suppose. Better to fix it now before she trips and hurts herself. Nice talking to you again!

What if the clown strips? LOL.

Noemi said...

I am as guilty as you when it comes to purses... I understand the need to buy such irresistable little things when you see them LOL

Glad you had a good time with your mom. We missed you here in blogland!

Mom not Mum said...

LOL That's a lot of purses. I certainly don't have 12 purses but dh did notice when I bought the last one.

Sounds like we all had rain - ugh!

Chrissy said...

My hubs ALWAYS notices! There is no escaping or sliding things in with him, so I can relate to you!

Burg said...

LOL!!

It so cracks me up when the cram themselves into the smallest thing they can find! It's not quite so funny when their dad does it though..

Catwoman said...

Yeah, my hubby notices those things too. And the line "this old thing? I've had this FOREVER!" no longer works... Sigh.

A stripping clown? I'm so there!!!!!

Oh, and your deck looks FANTASTIC, by the way!

I hate buying purses, mostly because I need such huge ones. I have to lug around so much, so I need lots of little separate pockets for keys, pens (I had one leak in my purse once...NEVER again), meds, mints, the list goes on and on.

I always look like I am on the way to the airport......

I can't say I own 12 purses, but they always seem to be the first thing I find myself perusing whenever I'm shopping. I guess the search for THE PERFECT BAG never ends, huh?

I feel exactly the same way when my mom leaves.

I'm pretty much a one purse kind of gal. I use it until either a strap breaks or there are so many crumbs on the bottom that it clogs the hole in my cell phone that is for charging. This just happened and now my cheapness has cost me a new phone. Tell hubby my story if he ever gives you a hard time about how many purses you own.

Slick said...

Bout time we got an update around here.

12 purses? Now Elle...what in the world...

My husband notices every purchase I make too. Sucks cuz I can't get anything passed him. I bought a new purse Sunday. I'm so thrilled. The last new one I bought was three years ago.

I also bought three new dresses and paraded around in them. All he could manage to say was "You need a tan." What a guy.

I'd hate to be able to magically total all of my landscaping supplies: mulch, flowers, plants, edging, weed blocker, fertilizer, etc. Scary.
