Good Things

Bog boots.  They are kind of pricey, so I couldn't afford to get the entire boot (these are slip ons that only come up to my ankle).  Waterproof and comfortable, these boots will last me a very long time.

Where Am I?

It is raining mice and men today.  Has been all through the night and will be through tomorrow.  When I got up at 6am to take Roxy out, I thought for a moment that the last five or so years had been a dream and I am still in Western Washington.  There is water everywhere.

Sleeping On A Cloud

Who knew that a new, king-sized mattress would bring such joy and happiness to my life?

Oh my goodness, I have never looked so forward to bedtime in my life.  And I think Randy and Roxy feel the same way.

Last Friday, Randy, Roxy and I loaded ourselves into the truck and made the approximately one hour journey to Mountain View to pick up the head board and foot board for our new bed.

I ❤ My ,,,

Anybody who knows me knows how I love my electronic gadgets.  If I didn't have Randy to talk some sense into me, I would break our bank with updating my phone every time a new model came out.

In fact, right after Verizon replaced (for free) the mistake of the Xperia Play, they came out with a new Razr model.  

Randy ended up hiding my car keys so I couldn't get to our neighborhood Verizon store.

Irish Cream Bars

When Randy and I were doing our grocery shopping for Thanksgiving, I realized that I had had not picked up any Cool Whip to go with Randy's pumpkin pie.  We were already at the checkout when I left Randy there with a panicked look on his face dashed off to the frozen food section.  He really dislikes it when I take off when we are so close to the cash register.  Not because he may have to pay, but because I may get lost and never make it back.  I can barely find our car in the parking lot, so he attempts to keep me in sight at all times.

Lucky for us both, I didn't have to do much searching.  WalMart had the Cool Whip prominently displayed at the end-cap of their first freezer aisle.  Holy Moly ~  there are a lot choices for Cool Whip.  Regular, Light, Fat-Free, Reduced Fat, Sugar Free, just to name a few.  That doesn't even include the flavors that are available.  Way too many choices for a fake whipped cream product, if you ask me.

So Far, So Good

Well, it is day four of the new year and time to rethink the practicality of those resolutions.  Actually, I didn't make any resolutions this year.  I haven't for quite some time.  Why set myself up for failure?

Well, I am trying to give up sweets.  Again?  Still?  That has less to do with a New Year's resolution and more to do with a daily resolution.  I am on day four.  There is a unopened package of pretzel M & M's taunting me from the pantry.  I didn't like them the last time I bought them, so I have no clue why I put them in the shopping cart.  It's like an invisible force that makes them jump from the shelf to my hands.
