Happy Friday Everyone?

I did not have a good day.
I had NOT a good time in traffic, NOT a good time at work, NOT a good time in the stirrups.

This day got my blood pressure up to 130/80 and gave me a splitting headache. We won’t even dabble in the anxiety.


me in the afternoon

I made it home. I hugged my girls and kissed their precious cheeks. I lay in a pile of my furbabies and had all the lubbins. I worked the jigsaw puzzle with one hand and ate some cold pizza with the other. Eventually my husband came home and held me. I took Sassy to a party, picked up dinner, put on my comfies, ate that dinner, and then an amazing thing happened — Bubba and Simon have come to visit!

(It’s okay that I’m writing this — they’ve gone to the liquor store.)

Anyway, if you’re hangin on for a funny, I’m not sure I’ve got it, but, with evidence of restaurant food lingering on paper plates, and what with it bein nine o’clock and all, Bubba asked, “So I guess Simon and I should go get our own dinner tonight?”
We nodded and smiled.
Adult children are so cute.
Then I said, “Orrr, you could go buy all the groceries for the whole week! I’ll cook somethin up for y’all when you get back.”

They declined.

I have super big plans for the weekend, and by big I mean, yeah, I will buy groceries…


The rest of the time, I will be engaged in a serious attempt at what people call relaxing. I’m not good at it, but goddammit, I try!

Have a great weekend!

  4. Um, my wife is at the grocery store right now. She was afraid to leave the dogs in our son’s care until I got home. Things are a little strange around here right now. Hope you have a great weekend.

    I hate it, too. Horrible waste of time, except I like the food I get. I need to get off this computer and get some fur baby lubbins, too.

    I must be a freak cuz I like grocery shopping. Shame about your Friday. Fridays should be a happy prelude to The Weekend. Mondays should be the day of suck. I am sure it will get better. The humidity is going to drop so that has to help. Doesn’t it? Well Happy Saturday.

      I hadn’t even slept when I read your comment at FOUR AM. Today is wonderful. My life would be infinitely more entertaining if I loved grocery shopping, so I’ll envy you that!
      Happy Saturday to you! 😀

    Sorry you didn’t have a good day, but it sounds like it improved later on. Ugh I hate grocery shopping, and doing it on the weekend… even worse. I LOL’d at Smeagal hehe! I might have to steal that meme for my own purposes, Precious. 🙂

    Cold pizza and puzzles! Glad you found some fun, even if it did come late in the day. Grocery shopping…blah! Same ‘ol, same ‘ol stuff. I think that’s why I throw in a bunch of random this and that, just to keep it interesting. And take a lot of photos there…haha! Mucho hugs and wishes for a fab Saturday! 🙂

    We loves the grocery shopping, precious, because we meets our friends in the aisles. Small town. Staring all All The Things is a form of meditation; very relaxing. But the stirrips! Ugh! Don’t haffa do dem no more. TMI

    Hope this is just a vague memory of a very horrible day washed out with the Joy of Bubba come home and there was humor in the boy’s comment, question about food and what he must go to get it. . . . 😁
