6-8-12 Friday (Shipping And Handling)

Sunday is a blur so I’m guessing we didn’t do much.  If it weren’t for the date/time stamp on the photos I would have forgotten that I had ironed the “Twin Room” drapes and Jim hung them.  I think this room is also complete!

We bought some new stuff for the dining room table.  We got these candle thingies (2 packages) on clearance at Kirkland’s.  We got the table runner a couple of weeks ago from Pier One.

Monday: So I run out of stamps and think to myself, "self", because I often call myself that, "I can just order them online and then they'll leave them in my mailbox." Genius. I go to USPS.com, set up a user name and password, click on my stamps, checkout and they want $1.25 to ship them. What? You come to my house almost everyday. You want me to pay $1.25 to ship them. I don't even pay shipping on Amazon.com. You suck.


After work on Tuesday I stopped at local grocery store Harris Teeter for the stamps.  Not only did they sell stamps but they had a special.  Buy a book of stamps and get prefabbed peanut butter cookie dough at regular price.  What a deal, I couldn’t resist.  I bought some.  I came home, we ate dinner and had fresh baked cookies.  Why am I over weight again?  Strictly rhetorical.

Thursday, Jim spotted a deer in the back yard.  Naturally I squealed, grabbed the camera and snapped photos as if it were Bigfoot or something.  I can’t help it; I just love this stuff!

There, now you saw it too!

Friday night, wait for it…  We used a restaurant.com certificate for Mexican food with Deanna and David.  Afterwards, another certificate of sorts for bowling.

It’s not important who won (obviously I didn’t) so we’ll leave it be.  OK?  Oh… I drank beer.  Only the second time in my life.  The first time was during my visit to Pompano to see childhood friends.  I didn’t get drunk; I had a glass.

We knew we were in trouble when David showed up with his own bowling ball and shoes.  Oy.


  1. But you win because your ball matches your shirt. I mean the bowling ball........

    1. Jodie, I actually had nothing to do with that. They have a sizing ball at the counter, you pick and then they give out a ball. It was weird that there isn't a selection sitting around.
