Peanut Butter Crackers and Dr. Pepper

Mmmmm, I feel like I am back in college. Peanut butter crackers and Dr. Pepper were the staples of my life back then. I really miss peanut butter - used to eat it all the time. But now my rendezvous with the sticky goodness are few and far between because Kiddo has a peanut allergy. And, since EVERYTHING I eat is met with "bite, puweeze?" I have to steal away to hidden places just to have a much needed snack. So here I sit, hiding my crackers under a notebook and popping a whole one in my mouth every time Kiddo looks away. Last one....mmmmmmmm!

Kiddo is snacking on some "nee nee" which is Kiddo Speak for macaroni. No Kraft for this boy, only Momma's homemade will do. Just thought you'd want to know. ;)

So, do you ever go out to run errands, etc and have the feeling you have somehow driven though an invisible portal to the Twilight Zone? I guess in our little town we have "freak days" or something and I keep missing the flyer. A few days ago I had to run to the local grocery for a few things and as I was driving through the parking lot I saw some pretty amazing individuals! One gentleman in particular, who appeared to be in his 60s or older, was lumbering through the parking lot, wearing his dark wash denim hiked up almost to his armpits. Peeking above the black leather belt that was strangling his rib cage was a navy blue t-shirt. On the shirt it simply said "COLLEGE" in big, bold, white letters. ummm....ok. A few parking spaces away a woman emerged in sweat pants and what a could only be called "dressy" flowing top. Not exactly how I would put that outfit together! I don't know, maybe HEB shoppers are just fashion challenged.

Saturday night I was able to get out of the house and go with my neighbor to a bunco game. Now, if you have never played bunco - you should. It is really fun. Imagine 4 tables with 4 women each, throwing dice and trying to rack up points before the bell rings. It can get pretty crazy depending on the people involved, and though this particular group does not partake, most bunco games are "enhanced" with fruity adult beverages. I think this group does just fine with getting crazy - no alcohol needed! Since it was our October game, we all had to dress up, so I often found myself sitting across from some interesting characters. The group is extremely diverse, ranging in age from 20 something to 80 something, and we all had a great time. Thank you to my neighbor, S, who talked me into going with her for the first time a couple of months ago. I will be an alternate any time! :) Hopefully no one minds, but here's a pic of the group...

I am the foot-taller-than-everyone-biker chick on the right (in case you can't see me ;) ). Don't they look like some fun ladies?




Anyway, so while I was out, Kiddo and Hubby had some wonderful bonding time together. I don't know exactly what happened, but suddenly they are best buddies. Hubby even gave Kiddo a bath and put him to bed! Well, I guess I should clarify, I was witness and resident coach to the bath/teeth brushing/ear cleaning before I left and Kiddo was asleep in our bed when I got home, but at least he was down for the night. Hubby forgot to feed him dinner, but that was no biggie - Kiddo would have asked him for something if he was hungry enough.

Well, I guess I should get back to editing pictures. I just thought I would share.
Until,
D

I like your boots!

I'm so accustomed to freaks living in an urban area that they have to be really outrageous or scary for me o notice. My mind often drifts when I'm driving alone though and occasionally I drive right past my intended destination.
