  • I made it 10 days without visiting Target and then I caved.  I just HAD to go.  I figured that my happiness was at stake.
  • I spoke to a very nice Bristish man on the phone today and had to keep from busting up laughing at the thought of him saying mobile or flat.  You know what happened?  He asked me to ring him back on his mobile.  I. almost. lost. it.  Bahama memories all over again.
  • Ken discovered the Girl Scout Cookie Peanut Butter Patties.  He is now addicted.  Funny how that can happen when he "does not like sweets".
  • He is the same person that has eaten over half of my peanut butter M&M's.  Odd, huh?
  • I am no longer getting carded when I buy alcohol (hangs head in shame).  *But* I think this is because I only buy wine.  What 20 year old buys red wine?
  • I plan on testing this theory (you know, boost the old self esteem) by going to buy some Purple Passion or Apple Pucker.
  • If this plan works against me, I might have to order more anti-aging face cream and start applying it hourly.
  • The Starbucks by my office is still passing out Christmas cups, and I might be the only person that is happy about that. 
  • I spent 20 minutes Googling the Golden Girl's house yesterday.  We are going to be in Miami and I wanted to do a drive by and get a photo.  Don't judge.
  • You can imagine how disappointed I was to find out the actual house shown is in LA.
  • This is probably the time I should point out that I made Ken drive me by the actual Full House house. (I am a child of the 90's don't judge)
  • He was utterly ashamed when I admitted I had memorized the address.
  • He was even more ashamed when I told him to circle the block and park so I could get a photo.  He refused. 
  • I better stop, I am losing cool points all over the place...
  • Ken had something come up that would interfere with the NYC Marathon.  For the sake of his sanity (and safety), he was able to rearrange his schedule. 
  • Ken and I had an entire conversation via text about Angel, Theodore, and Kya donating money to the Humane Society.  The last text was Ken saying that he is glad we have raised such caring animals. Yes, we are those people, feel free to throw things and laugh at us.  I am fully aware that we need to find more things to keep us occupied...
  • And last, but not least, we had a milestone at our house on Tuesday night.  That's right, Ken went with me to the gym.  I will give you a moment to catch your breath......Yep, he went to the gym and worked out no less.  To say that I am proud is an understatement.
Happy Weekend!

I agree w/you about Target. I must visit there at least once a week.
