The Small Things in Life

Yesterday, I received a free sample in the mail. One of my favorite words is free. The package contained Kotex maxi pads. Two of them were overnight pads, approximately the size of school buses. I was looking forward to seeing if they worked. And then it hit me. The most exciting moment of my life in the last month was me looking forward to test driving a maxi pad. Does this mean I am easily pleased by the small things? Or does this mean my life is pitiful? I'm on the fence with this one.
Last month we took the chance to do a family thing and went to Lake Tahoe. Dave Ramsay would not have approved. But we had a great time.

We went out to eat at a buffet and Azure saw some crawdads. She asked what they were. I told her you suck the juice out of their heads. Her reply was, "awesome!"

A man behind us snickered. I told him you really do suck the juice out of their heads. He wasn't laughing at that. He was laughing at her reply.

My little tomboy...


Not much is going on here. We are impatiently waiting for school to end. June 17th is the day. Everybody has had summer fever since mid-May. Hurry up and be done, school!

I envy your maxi pads! I love free stuff! heehee
I once read a book about the elderly and one gent stated that
his life consisted of looking forward to two things-the mail and
eating- that's my life exactly.*sigh*

hehehe Azure Rocks! That must have been a fun family trip! Dave Ramsey would not approve of anything I plan to do this summer
either. It's been getting to the
point that our souls are dying from
lack of FUN so we're making up for
lost time this summer.

Roxanne - I hear you. As eager as I am for them to get out, I am just as eager for them to go back.

Chris H - You're done with all that, huh?

Bearette - Definitely a yay for nursing. That was the best part.

Ms. L - Are you calling me old?
LOL We were doing the same, withering from lack of fun and we just had to do it. Picnics and free stuff are great but sometimes you want to have the vacation that only some $$$ can buy.

co-worker of the Hubs" You don't

that onto a pillow sometimes,lol

Lael - I must have the stupid today. I am going to have to ask you to explain that expression.

Mackey - It does bring to mind a person driving a large maxi pad with wheels down the road, doesn't it. Just don't tailgate!
