it is what it is …

you capture: shapes

I stumbled onto a fun blog by way of my friend Jenni‘s blog friend Erin … sort of like the book, “If you Give a Mouse a Cookie” kind of thing. I was reading one blog, then another, then I saw this photo challenge and here I am!



The challenge of the week is shapes .. and I couldn’t find anything more shapely than this picture of a sno-cone maker from this weekend’s Louisville Bats game.

not bad, not bad at all …

today was grocery day … and for the first time in quite a little while, I went armed with a list and a pile of coupons. I shopped the sale, and cut back on the amount of crap I’ve been buying this summer.

I saved over $50 🙂  not bad, considering my coupon pile has shrunk to next to nothing and the list was LONG.

excuse me while I hide some of my treats … my kids will eat them if I don’t! LOL

dear jon and kate …..

dear jon & kate,

announcing your divorce on TV? seriously? this is what it’s come to?

There are no words. Actually, there are a lot of words, but you’re not worth the time it would take to type them.


it’s open letter day at   check it out for more!

jon & kate .. the end?

I was looking through some old posts yesterday, trying to figure out when I first blogged about Jon & Kate Gosselin. Looks like it was July 8 2008 and I didn’t love them or the show. A year later, that part is still true. I’ve never understood the devotion to Kate….  I am amazed at the lengths some people will go to to defend her and the choices she’s made.

TLC is promising a lame attemtpt to get viewers life-changing announcement on Monday. There’s a lot of speculation that Jon & Kate will tell the world they’re getting a divorce. They need to do that on TV? And it will take an hour? Kate does have a tendency to repeat information 2 or 3 times each show, and if it is a divorce announcement .. Kate will have to sell the viewers on Kate Plus 8, because I don’t believe she’s giving up the gravy train show anytime soon.

Someone let me know how it turns out. I’ll be watching The Bachelorette.

hard to believe …

school starts 7 weeks from today.

a note to Mother Nature

a little rain is good. helps the plants and all .. I get that.

but seriously, this every day rain thing? it’s got to stop. it’s ruining the summer vacation, of which there are only 7 more weeks. I’d like to enjoy a little of it by the pool, okay?

thanks. you’re the best.
