Monday Musings: January 23, 2012

A brief conversation while taking Munchie Boy to his Religious Education class...

Munch:  I had the best weekend, ever!
Me:  How so?
Munch: It all started Thursday with the bowling and pizza party. Then there was a Friday night swim meet. On Saturday I went to the Monster Truck Jam, and today Dad took me to Dave and Buster's.
Me: Wow, that is a great weekend! And now you get to top the weekend off in Ms. Donna's Religious Ed. class.
Munch: I don't think that counts.


Dear Target,

I had the most delightful shopping experience in your store this past Sunday. It began with finding some good bargains on your clearance rack and on funky socks. Then, as I was going through the grocery aisles, one of your associates said to me, "Hello there, young lady!" I chuckled but was quite pleased nonetheless. Then another associate walked me to the aisle I needed when I couldn't find a certain item on my list. (Hmmmm...maybe I was looking a bit feeble). And as I approached the checkout lanes, I had several cashiers vying for my attention! I felt like a celebrity! I will definitely shop the local Target again on an early Sunday morning!

A frugal and flattered 5th!


Dear Bethany,

No one's mind will be changed today. That's okay. I admire your dedication to the sanctity of human life, from conception to natural death. I'm proud of you. Keep on marching. 

Mama 5th


Thanks for the White Chili recipe. The only modification I made was subbing cheddar for Monterey Jack. It was well received by Mr. Sister. And that is always a plus!

A well fed 5th


Dear Work,

Since I stayed up for the game, do you think it possible for me to come in at 9 instead of 6:45am? No? Oh well, it was worth a try!

A red-eyed 5th


Dear Hip,

Stop it. Now. It's time to ease up on the pain. After all it's been since July. You are frustrating both me and my Physical Therapist (who has been working diligently, on a weekly basis since September get you to let go). 

A hobbled 5th


Dear Work,

P.S.  How about 8 hour shifts instead of 12. I think my hip would appreciate that.

A hurting 5th


That is all.

My boys would be jealous of the Monster Truck Jam. I should let them see one, but I have terrible visions of fiery crashes and flying truck parts... and who wants to drive to Pittsburgh in the winter?
Hope your hip feels better soon.

oh but you are a jam is fun...this is the first year we have not gone in a while...

Sounds like Munchie Boy had a fun weekend!

The last time I was in Target the service was terrible. Maybe I should have told them I know you? I'll try that next time!

Tracy said...

your hip, my knee.... and that 6:45 work time is annoying! Mine isn't that early but still up before the chickens.

I love early morning Target runs. It's like you have the whole place to yourself.
