Bits and Pieces (Part 1)

I have twenty "draft" blog posts.  Posts I started to write but never finished because I either wasn't feeling it at the time or got distracted by a butterfly.  I'm going to finish some of them (because they are good ideas and worth their own posts, but before I delete some of the 19 drafts I thought I'd share some of the tidbits I had saved. This may take a few posts over a few months (don't want to bore you with my incomplete thoughts) I haven't touched them (other than to copy and paste them) so they are in their original form...


(no title) - June 2012

Monday night, during the Flood-ette of 2011, I ventured out to the store to get some stuff for lunch. I came home with a few pasta Healthy Choices (I'm not the biggest fan of microwaved meats) and 3 Velveeta Shells and Cheese that I can just pop in the microwave at work. I'm thinking these are going to become my new lunch staple.

I seem to go through food fads. I believe this started when I was a wee little one and loved a slice of cheese warmed up on a plate in the microwave. Yummy.

The first summer I was allowed to stay home alone I lived off of mixed veggies, the off brand oreos that have one chocolate cookie and one vanilla one, and Fresca. Every. Single. Day.

This summer the lucky winner is Sundae Cones! They must have nuts. And Walmart, cheeting by adding waffle cone bits to the nuts on top does not count. I'm also now loving the carmel centered ones. Yummy times .


Things I look forward to finding out when I get to Heaven... - October 2010

1. Which individuals who committed haneous crimes and then repented are actually there?

2. Is there macaroni and cheese?

3. Does Grandpa know that Mark really didn't win that football game last year?

4. What happened to Amelia Earhart?


Brand Loyalty - April 2011

As I was enjoying some peanut butter toast Monday night I thought I sould let you know that Meijer has the best peanut butter in the world. Nothing else compares. That got me thinking, there are lots of brands I am loyal to.

1. Meijer Peanut Butter - But you already knew that. Seriously, though, it's better than any name brand peanut butter out there.

2. Aquafresh Extreme Cleam Whitening Action Toothpaste

3. Caress Tahition Renewal Body Wash

4. Ocean Potion Moisturizing Aloe Lotion - This is a must have when we go to the beach.

5.  Meijer Split Top Wheat Bread

6. Tropicana Pure Premium Orange Juice with Clacium - I used to be a "Low Acid. No Pulp." gal, but that turned out to be too sweet for me.


Dreams - January 2012

I have been having CRAZY dreams the last several weeks. Most of the time they are entertaining an usually involve people I know doing things they shouldn't (in order to protect the innocent from my crazy pregnancy dreams, I won't mention names). I think I secretly wish my life were a soap opera.

So I usually wake up the next morning and think "Phew, glad So and So isn't having an affair with So and So" or sometimes I'll dream that C and I are no longer together (which completely bums me out in my dreams) and I'll awake in the middle of the night to find that yes, he is still there.

But this last week has been a bit disappointing and I'm blaming on this cold and my inability to sleep at night.  Monday night I had the most disappointing dreams ever.  There were two of them.  The first involved C and I standing in line forever to buy elk meat.  We don't eat animals that weren't in Charlotte's Web. But there we stood, in line, at church (?) waiting for some elk because someone shot a 9 foot tall elk (which was apparently the largest one ever) and had some extra meat to sell.  But by the time we got up there they were out of the regular elk meat and only had elk sausage made out of the bits and pieces of the bad park of the elk. Oh, and they also had a deer that had not been skinned or whatever it's called.  So we passed.  And I woke up disappointed.

But then I fell back to sleep and the next dream was worse.

All I did was go to Kroger before work to get something to have for lunch. That's it. Just a Lean Cuisine.

Tuesday night was a bit better, still not as exciting as what I've grown accustomed to the last two months, but as least I did more than shop for a frozen entree.

I quit.
