Goggles. Gagging. And Groceries

Wow. That’s a mouth full.

So, I’m digging around in my brain for coherent blog fodder, all the while Tom and Jerry is blaring in the background. McDaddy is sitting just feet away from me on his lap-top.

Exciting life?

Why yes it is.

Here’s a quick run-down of the things I’ve learned this week, because, well, I figure I’m here and you’re here and just because that’s the kind of girl I am. And just because I’m feeling frisky, let’s throw caution to the wind and go with a list.

1. Before going to the trouble of shopping, purchasing, and subsequently returning six (SIX!) pair of shorts to five different stores, you should probably just try them on at the store.

2. The Mart of Walls has the most liberal return policy on the planet.

3. When you upgrade your beloved iPhone to the 4.0 operating system, your battery will drain faster. You will also have a few cooler options.

4. When you upgrade your beloved iPhone to the 4.0 operating system, you can expect the same erratic behavior from Words With Friends. For some reason we can put a man on the moon, but we can’t make Words With Friends work consistently.

5. When you haven’t seen or talked to your BFF for any real length of time in weeks, you will talk her ear off when you finally meet up at breakfasst.

6. The kids bagging groceries at the Foodland couldn’t care less about your eggs.

7. $4.00 swimming goggles are just as useless as $1.00 goggles are.

Not sure about $6.00 goggles. Stay tuned.

8. A week at Scout Camp with older boys is a fine motivator for learning to swim and “doing the cannonball” off of the side of the pool.

9. When designing an “egg drop” project for Scout Camp, a roll of toilet paper with the egg nestled in the middle and then surrounded by bubble wrap is not a good casing for the egg.

10. PetSmart is an interesting place to take your kiddos if you have an hour to kill before a movie. Or if you need to purchase thirty crickets.

11. Seeing crickets sold in a paper container at a pet store is enough to make me gag. And apparently enough to dream about them all. night. long.

What about you? What did you learn this week? You know the drill!

    I swear by trying on clothes, especially pants…we’re all made so differently, sad as that is..and grocery shopping alone…so nice, and more affordable!

    I love the Mart of Walls return policy. Did you know you could return dead fish. Yep!

    And the cricket thing, to funny. As a teen I would have to catch crickets from their big cage in front of our store to sell to the fisherman.

    And I love PetSmart/Petco for a good free outing on rainy days.
