I'm just going to make it simple and give you a bunch of photos from our day.
Me & Mine 2017
This is my favorite kind of weekend.
Katie and I tackled one of those lingering monsters around the house today... the attic. We didn't do the whole thing, but we pulled out about a dozen containers and boxes and put back about four of them.
I was futzing around with a fidget spinner the other day that I found open at a store. Suddenly I was reminded of something from my childhood.
It's back to the shop I go. Back to the shop I go. Hi-ho the derry-o. It's back to the shop I go.
I can't believe I missed it! Missed what?
While Snippet posts are nice and quick and fun, the downside to them is that you otherwise obliterate a bunch of potential blog posts in one fell swoop.
Why is filling out insurance paperwork so damn difficult and confusing?
There's nothing more exhilarating than a run.
The other day, I went to the post office to send a package. I took out my new-ish Discover card to pay for it but had forgotten to sign the back of the card. The cashier asked me to sign the back so I wrote "See ID" on the back, which is what I do with ALL cards.
Last year, Katie won an Amazon Echo as part of the adult Summer Reading Program at our library.
Today, we attended a grandkids pool party at my parents' neighborhood. My parents head up the grandparents planning committee and they love planning these events all the time and the kids love going.
We just got back from our vacation (more on that later) and we wanted to take our rental car back to Hertz. We technically have the car until tomorrow so we'd be returning it right on time.
If you have not yet seen Wonder Woman, please consider skipping this post as it contains a MASSIVE spoiler.
Ever since Marty started reviewing Oreo cookies and other snack foods, I've been chomping (pun fully intended) at the bit to find Limited Edition flavors that he hasn't already reviewed on his site. I think I found another!
I wear contact lenses. Therefore, when we go to the pool, I have goggles on my eyes at all times. They keep splashing water from wiping the lens off my eyeball and they're UV protected to keep me from squinting in the reflected sunlight. I love them.
I had an interesting dream last night. It starred the characters from Scooby-Doo. Yeah, Nathan's loves are invading my dream state. Once they become LEGO versions of themselves, I know I'm in trouble.
I feel I owe you all a bit of an apology as I feel many of my posts of late have been, well, garbage. More often than not, I find myself deciding on a topic at the very last second and just writing up the minimum I can in a short amount of time just to get something written.
Woo! 3, 2, 1, go!
I know, I know... I still owe y'all a video for the month of June. I've got one envisioned and even have some of the source video. I just haven't gotten to work editing it.
Have I ever told you about my Darth Maul'd Mickey Mouse figure? No?
Do you have any idea how much self control it took on my part to not pocket this bottle of hot sauce from a nearby Taco Fresco yesterday?
I realized something the other day... I never see people rollerblading anymore. Has it died as an activity?
The pool is finally open!!
16 years, cavity free.
In the back of this book I'm reading, I found an order form for software from this company that had created a computer game based on the book.
I finished editing my monthly video but YouTube is hung up on processing it.
It was a sad day yesterday for this coffee drinking fool. Those of you who follow me on social media already saw this either on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook along with requisite lamentation.
Remember years ago when doctors started talking about the reality that is "phantom vibration syndrome"? It's what happens when you swear you feel vibrations in your leg from your phone ringing on silent in your pocket when it really is not.
In the month leading up to us going to the Professional Bull Riding (PBR) event in January, Katie and I tried to find some way to make ourselves more "cowboy friendly."
I was listening to the most recent episode of the podcast Up & Vanished the other day. In this episode, they were trying to fathom the motivation of a person alleged to have murdered his former teacher, Tara Grinstead, a few years after he had graduated and moved on.
I realize that, at 42 years old, I'm just that... old. Not as old as some, but older than many. And, while 42 may be, according to Douglas Adams, the "Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything," it doesn't mean I really know anything at all.
The other day, Katie picked up something new for me to try out, medium roast coffee K-Cups from Trader Joe's.
The other day, I was watching season 1, episode 7 of Stranger Things when a quote from one of the characters caught my attention.
A couple towns east of here lies Cantigny Park. You may recall it from the Tom Hanks film A League of Their Own as the home of Garry Marshall's character league owner Walter Harvey.
