I’m going with Prompt #1.
10 Reasons why you’re better off without him….or her….or it.
- You don’t love me the way that I love you.
- You’re empty inside.
- The good moments we spend together are fleeting at best.
- You look good on the outside, but looks are deceiving.
- You take more than you give.
- You’re never around. You think once a year you can sweep me off my feet, but I require more than that.
- I can’t afford you! Good grief, you burn through my money in the blink of an eye.
- After we’re together, I feel bad about myself.
- You don’t care about making me feel bad, either. You just sit there and mock me, relentlessly.
- You’re not loyal. You cozy up with women all over the place and I’m supposed to just take it.
Wow. I was planning on writing about someone something else entirely, but when I got going something else entirely just poured out. I’m guessing some of you can relate.

Die, Girl Scout Cookies.
I need you dead and gone.
I literally ate 3 thin mints while on the treadmill today.
My judgement has been compromised.
And I am ‘supposedly’ training for a half-marathon and participating in not one, but two fitness challenges as well.
Not. Looking. Good.
But my frozen Samoas only come around once a year, so how can I say no to that?
Clearly, I cannot.
And this, my friends, is the tale of why I will never again wear a 2-piece bathing suit. Because I have the willpower of a…dang. What’s the rest of that sentence? A person with no willpower?
I’ll have to have a cookie while I think about that for a minute.
Little bits of randomness that I’ve been thinking about, but none are worthy of long enough for their own entire post.
- That killer whale who just killed a trainer at Sea World? Apparently he’s a serial killer. Maybe we should stop saving the whales.
- A couple of weeks ago I won a giveaway over at Cinnamon Hollow for Country Bob’s All-Purpose Sauce. I’m not generally much of a sauce gal so I had my reservations. I’d say that it tasted comparable to A-1. Most attractive to me, however, was this statement in the company literature: It would be nice if we could claim responsibility for the success of the company, however, credit must be given where credit is due. Proverbs 16:3 says, “Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.” We have placed true ownership of Country Bob, Inc. in the hands of God. “Christ is our CEO” and He is an Awesome Boss! Now that is a company I want to support!
- Despite how it must look to my readers, I do not have 42 appliance garages or a kitchen the size of a cracker box. For some reason this just always ends up being my food snapshot locale.
- I’m on a DIY/go green kick. To be perfectly honest, it’s more about saving money than saving the environment. (I’m not even going to go there with my issues on saving the planet) In that vein, I’ve been using natural products like baking soda, peroxide, and white vinegar to clean, and I’ve been making my own laundry detergent. Do you have any other tips you could share?
- I love HGTV. I’m a DIY kinda gal anyway, and I love real estate so I especially like the house-hunting type shows. I find myself wanting to shake some of the buyers, though. Why can they not see past ugly paint colors? Why are they unwilling to put any work into a place? Have they no imagination??? This makes me crazy.
- Chris’s company gives out bonuses at the beginning of the year. Very sadly, this year not so much. I, on the other hand, continue to reap bonuses from my job every day.
- I have the best job in the world.
- Girl Scout cookies. Everywhere. If you need some, please come to my house. I need them to go away.
- I don’t think I ever told you this, but I did post it on Twitter/Facebook. And I told everyone at church, too – because I’m klassy like that. My parents bought me a leg lamp for Christmas. You know, the leg lamp. My husband hates it. Because he has no sense of humor, and is easily embarrassed by me. Nonetheless, it did hold the appropriate place of honor in our [front] living room window this past holiday season. And because I love it so much (and I’m super klassy), it’s still in the living room, though now on a side table instead.
- When I was a kid we had a neighbor that told my mom she’d always wanted to have a room in her house for all of the things that she knows are tacky, but loves them anyway. I feel exactly the same way. Leg lamp would love a room like that, methinks.
- I’m frustrated with our school’s PTO. They have zero communication (don’t even announce meetings!), overpriced fundraisers, and are not at all accessible. I’m writing a letter to suggest some changes, but I am still in need of some GOOD fundraising ideas. Got any for me? Overpriced wrapping paper needs to die.
That’s all I’ve got. It’s not that NaBloPoMo is wearing me down; quite the contrary, actually. I’ve been surprised that it’s been easier than I anticipated. It’s just that I am sick – again – still. My whole body aches, as it has off and on for the last 3 months. Spring can’t come soon enough.
No great stories to share, just a few random tidbits.
-This week, I learned that I cannot say no to Girl Scout cookies. But as soon as the Samoas in my freezer are gone, I am cookie-free once again. I promise. Let’s just hope they run out after cookie sales are over. At $3.50 a box for 15 cookies, they are bad for the wallet and the butt.
-I learned that I can still roller skate pretty darn well, even though it’s been 20+ years since that was attempted. In fact, I had so much fun that I’d like to make it a regular part of my schedule. For the kids’ sake, of course.
-I learned that I love Sudoku. Annie got a Nintendo DS for her birthday, and the Brain Age game is a lot of fun! Unfortunately my brain seems to be older than me (currently 44), but the creepy cartoon head assures me that with daily training that will improve.
-I learned that Annie is pre-engaged. To her good buddy Chase, apparently. So far I approve. He’s absolutely adorable, very polite, a christian, very nice parents, and he has never pulled his green light. What more could a girl ask for?
-Finally, I learned that there are a few words that I will simply never be able to spell correctly. ‘Apparently’ is one of them. grrrrrr.
That’s all I’ve got. If you’d like to share what you’ve learned, or read what others have learned this week, click the logo above to head over to Musings of a Housewife. Thanks to Jo-Lynne for hosting!
