It’s that time again.
Life wasn’t as thrilling this week, so forgive me, but I’m going to fill the void with graphics.

I spent almost $100 this week at the hair salon. Can I call it a salon when it’s in the same strip mall as the grocery store? For those of you with gutter minds, I am not referring in any way to strippers. Although, when it gets dark, I hear some crazy things happen behind that building. ANYWAY….I think we are all going to have to go “stranded on an island” or “caveman” style to save money…….OR…….We could take a stab at trying to cut each other’s hair. I’ve got some scrapbook scissors that could work wonders.
The Cute One had another therapy session. He is working on standing unassisted and getting off of furniture the right way. Apparently, falling off isn’t correct. Someone should alert the drunks.
I’ve been burning a hole in my YMCA membership card this week. It’s taken a lot out of me since I’m not accustomed to such activities. I’ve had to prioritize, with the bit of energy I had left at the end of each day. Since I am legally obligated to take care of my children and I’d go more insane if my house went to complete crap………..the computer was not high on my list.
Thing 1 and Thing 2 have a very large social studies packet to complete for school. They were given a week to finish half of it, but they were moving too slowly. I bribed them with extra video game time this week. Shocker! It worked.
I guess I worked myself sick at the Y. I had some crazy “not quite” 24 hour bug. On the upside……It probably helped my weight loss goals a bit.
Update: SO…….Despicable Me, who owes Cowboy money, finally paid him half of it (what they claim is half….doubts about that) . Despicable restated they aren’t responsible. Really? YOU SEE……They passed the buck. They gave SuckUDry (per them: known to be untrustworthy and owes them money…HMMMMMM!) our property. SuckUDry sold it and kept the money. SO……Even though the deal was made with Despicable Me, we get paid when SuckUDry pays them. Here lies a valuable lesson when you want to screw with someone. Promise to do something, involve a third-party to lie, steal, whatever………AND THEN……Claim no responsibility. It’s like the people who pop out kids and then pawn them off on others to raise. I bet those kids don’t blame their real parents. After all, they passed the buck. It’s not their responsibility. What a convenient way to live!

Buck passing is an Olympic sport.
It should be. I bet those folks are great at passing the torch.
How interesting to hear from you. I am blog reading now and have you next on my list.
You should be the first on on Follies!
Well…let’s go see.
I found bribery to be the best incentive ever!
It is. I wouldn’t mind being bribed with something myself.
What a hoot.
Thanks. Sorry about the pollution though.
I like the title of this posting,
in fact it would look good as
one of my own 🙂 lol Hey just
kidding Lorre 🙂
I will call back soon, I doubt that
I will be able to catch up but the
adventuring will be fun 🙂
Sounds good and I understand. Don’t worry about it.
Your frenzy would be something entirely different, I’m sure.
