What do Seattle’s Best Coffee, P. Diddy, a flat tire and Marie Antoinette have in common?


Ish. Here follows a few photos pulled from some happenings over the last week. Ish.

I had forgotten about these little stories that have peppered the last week. I’ve had a bad case of the writer’s block, so I am especially thankful for photo-taking technology.


I had some flight issues which resulted in a $10 food voucher at the airport. So, this is what I got:

Seattle's Best Coffee and a breakfast sandwich
The story has less to do with the food and more to do with… I don’t actually know.


I picked up my son from school one afternoon. We had some time to kill so we wandered downtown and got ice cream (well, HE got ice cream, I got coffee!). We walked along the waterfront in the sunshine, and the sun was so bright! (((HOW BRIGHT WAS IT???!))) It was SO bright, even with sunglasses the sun was blinding… Here’s proof!

That kid. He’s good people.


I got a flat tire. Turns out there was probably a nail in the tire.

But the nail fell out.

Gosh. Are you feeling the tension building in the storyline here?

Yeah. Me neither…

But before I could get the van to the uber-helpful fellas at Les Schwab, my friend Lisa… MRS. FIX IT helped me get my tired pumped up enough to get the van down the hill. I couldn’t figure out the air compressor. ON A CCOUNT OF THE FACT I HAVE NEVER HAD TO TURN ON AN AIR COMPRESSOR.

How hot is she???

Lisa. Mrs. FIX IT
Sorry fellas, SHE’S MARRIED!


My mother-in-law had a yard sale. Imagine my surprise when I found this little Marie Antoinette figurine up for sale… ejector head and all…

Speaking of yard sales…

Wake up in the mornin' feelin' like P. Diddy - Ke$ha
Actually, I did very little to help get ready for the yard sale, but there’s just something about getting ready for a yard sale that brings out the “hungover” in even the NOT hungover.


Well folks…. here begins another week. Today marks 40 days until my 40th. So, YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS?

Neither do I.

Maybe I should start pricing canes on eBay? I could really bling-out a cane… I just know I could.

Did you have a good week last week? Have you ever blinged-out a cane? DO YOU OWN A BEDAZZLER?

I don’t own a bedazzler. Nor a bull horn.

What was I writing about?

    You are a riot! And that Marie Antoinette action figure is just something else, huh? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi Jenny,

    That’s the best doll I’ve ever seen — Ejector head action! Yes!

    I turn to my Mets bobblehead, “Why can’t YOU do that?”

  3. Girl, do not be talking about being old. 40 is not old.
    You hear me?
    40. Is. Not. Old.
    It can’t be.
    *I’m 44* SHHHHHHH.

    *Stomps off*

    • YOU are not old. I am AGING. And I am not a fan of it. AT. STINKING. ALL. Wish we could go get Botox together. Not that YOU need it, but I see a few emergent wrinkles of my own that might respond well. OH. And someone on YouTube commented about my crinkly forehead.


      • Well, we are both AGING. But so are our kids, so that is irrelevant. And lets not talk about forehead wrinkles. Or the wrinkles around my eyes.

        And if someone on You Tube commented on your laugh-lined forehead, clearly, they are a stalker, because they must have paused the vid and STARED at it to see any.

        And we WILL get botox together. Or drinkies. Very soon!

    You, my friend, are quite possibly the best blog-writer ever!

    I just counted 7 days until I’m 41. Just to let you know, after the initial, “I look good for 40” few weeks, it sucks. Ooooh! You just gave me an idea for tomorrow’s blog post. Thanks!

    • I can’t believe I have not replied to this until now…. BEST BLOG WRITER EVER???!!!! Can I put this on my testimonial page? I don’t have one, but you make me want one! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Wait, can I come interview you on camera? Will you say that on camera? Will you????!!!!

      I am not at all dramatic.

    Random. Never have I read a blog post of yours with more randomness. That says something.

    Oh…and at my last yard sale I made $18.
    All day in the blazing sun.
    Running after four children (ages 7 to 1 1/2).
    And I still had SOO much left to bring home.

    Can you say “Huge Waste of TIME!?” I am over it. I really am. I am not bitter. I’m just sayin…okay I am done. No more yard sales for me. I will just give my crap away. =)
