Sweet Poison

So my hubs and Chloe and I
we have a way of eating at the same establishments
all the time....over and over.
It's's's cozy.
We have FAVORITE meals
We get to KNOW the servers and managers
There is something so small town comfy about walking in
a restaurant and everyone smiles...and says hi...and calls you by name.
Now.....there is a phenomenon that occurs with this that is causing me
a little stress recently...just a wee bit...but stress none the less.
I have been trying to drink less SUGARY drinks.....more water.
Well....not til' I embarked on that journey did I notice the problem
with the servers KNOWING me.....when I sit down at my very favorite
restaurant...a sweet tea almost beats me there. When I sit down at my
favorite Mexican restaurant a Pepsi beats me there.
When we are all done with our go cups....filled to the brim with poison
arrive with freshly wrapped straws for our journey.
I LOVE that they know me....and that they want us to be happy
and I love the little smile on their face when they have our drinks on the table before our booties hit the seat....they think they are so clever.
I just can't make myself say....ohhhhh....yeaaaa....I wanted water tonight.....I can't crush their accomplishment of knowing their customer.....I just can't. today top it off.....our happy happy fun super special Mexican server at our ONLY spot for Mexican....brought us complimentary dessert.....are you KIDDING me ???
You server people are awesome....and I do I do appreciate your hard work....and your ESP abilities
And because I can't stand to tell you otherwise....I'll have a tea and a Pepsi and dessert if you like.....and I'll drink my water at home.

have a happy day

Oh life can be tough
days can be hard
laced with ups and downs
beating myself up for not spending enough time with Chloe today
tearing myself down for blowing too much money at Target everyday
wondering why I can't get the second half of my hallway painted...dangit...just do lazy pig

normally I would then say.....repeatedly letting myself down for drinking way to much Pepsi and eating garbage....but not anymore.....I am eating a marathon runner's diet in comparison.....and you probably are too.....thanks to this LOVELY site....I'm not beating myself up for my diet anymore.
Warning....that link is not for the let me know if you see anything you like.

oh geeeezz

white stuff

we really have no clue
how to act
being that this was one amongst
only 3 snows Chloe has had the privilege of
enjoying...and being by far the largest (7 whopping inches)
she just had to lay in
feel it
get to know it
"hi white stuff....I am Chloe and I like you"
and seeing as we are clueless as to what to do in
the white stuff that is too dry to make a snowman (who knew)
or snowballs
the crafter in me said let's color
I mixed food coloring in squirt bottles
and that almost.........almost mind you made me wanna go out too
I HATE ....well...don't love COLD.

I chose to watch safely and warmly from my 72 degree
dry home
even our poor animals have
no clue how to act
Daisy just could not pick up
that she had to pee......IN the white stuff
upon seeing that Chloe had painted yellow on the white stuff
in the sled.....Ms. Daisy thought maybe she could fool us
she stepped ever so carefully up on the sled
"ha...looks like pee....they'll never know I didn't do it......ruff ruff"
all done"
not so fast blackie
go git
and like the rest of us
Daisy eventually grew accustomed
and whined to go out so she could nibble on some snow

What do you do when you have zero big hills
you sled down your road

and you enjoy it

and you hope for more white stuff
which just may be
this coming weekend
or so I hear
hmm....maybe not so bad
now that we kinda feel like we know you
white stuff
( no silly comments from you peeps who LIVE in way more than 7 inches.......this was major for us....MAJOR I tell you)
let me think we conquered it......k....
have a happy day
