Did your parents yell at you for leaving the front door open when you were a kid?
My Dad did…constantly: “What are you doing? Air-conditioning the neighborhood?“
What about staring into the open fridge? “Are you taking inventory?” (why, yes I was)
proud embarrassed as heck to say, that I have spewed out the same comments….crud. I AM MY PARENTS!
Those things always come back to bite you…..
Life is all about learning. Right?
Right. And life is about biting you BACK. You know, for not listening to your parents.
We learned a new lesson this weekend.
Before leaving the house, it is imperative to make sure your fridge door is CLOSED. Yeah. We SHOULD know this. And who would have thunk it? IT was open all weekend.
So, we were air conditioning the HOUSE and taking inventory of the fridge…all while we were GONE.
Approx 40 bucks worth of groceries had to be tossed. Oh, how I loathe waste. And I will be
scared anxious to see our electric bill. ugghhhh.
It is always something. I suppose I should be thankful…we did not have lightening hit the house this time. That 40 bucks is really just a drop in the bucket compared to what lightening did to our house a few summers ago.
Florida=Paradise. I swear.
Oh, and close the front door for heavens sakes People!
Did anyone see that Oprah show a few weeks ago where families gave up all their electronics?
I know not everyone is a fan of Mrs. O…I don’t LOVE her, but I do like the topics she sometimes covers….
The families gave up computers, phones, I-pods and TV’s for a week or two.
Time for the family to enjoy each other while NOT hooked up.
Well, I could totally do that. Really I could.
But NOT this week.
This past week I got two new toys.
I got this for Mother’s day. Well, I was given a different one, but me being me, I took it back and got the one I have been dreaming about:
So far, I am having a good time with this little baby. 12X zoom. ahhhh. I lurrve it.
It is BLUE and still small enough to carry around.
Even Ozzie likes it…cause he does NOT have green alien eyes with this camera!!!
I have been playing with the new toy in the yard…..just loving it to pieces!!!
And I am proud to say I have joined the revolution. The text revolution that is.
I have had the phone for about a week and so far I have sent about 25 texts.
Really, it took me a week to send 25. ;0
I have this phone in blue also.
I suppose blue is my favorite color…this week. Yet I am STILL a green girl at heart!!!
All thanks to
My Sugar Daddy The Coach. Thanks honey.
Really, everyone should have a
Sugar Daddy wonderful husband like I do.
Anyone else stimulating the economy??? How about your electric company????
