Pierogies and Parcheesi

Recently, my aunt and uncle from Missouri visited us in Upstate, NY. As we do every year that they visit, we had an awesome pierogi dinner.

This visit, after we ate a hearty meal of pierogies, kielbasa and other yummy things I can't remember as I was in a food coma, we played a game of Parcheesi. This was my first time playing this game. If you have never played, it's like the game “Trouble” but with more strategy. If you've never played Parcheesi OR Trouble, then Google it!

On this very night of Pierogies and Parcheesi, I happened to win the game. Not only did I win, but I CRUSHED my opponents.

So it was a fun night at my grandparent's old farmhouse and I look forward to a rematch next year!

Bad Drivers!!

As I was walking through the parking lot at the grocery store, I watched as a young woman pulled into a parking spot, not looking up as she was driving, and finally noticed me before she hit me.

She then put her cell phone down.

Ironically, she had a Baby on Board sticker on her window. And a baby in the back seat of the car.

I have several issues with this woman. She was on her cell phone while driving. And she was on her cell phone while driving with her baby in the back seat!! She has a Baby on Board sticker on her car and I honestly don't agree with those because (just like the Watch for Motorcycles signs) the DRIVER has to be careful as well as other drivers. So just because you have a sign on your car warning drivers that you have a baby in your car, doesn't mean that YOU can drive stupidly.

I'm done with the stupid part of the population.

Dressing Room Blunder

Recently, my husband and I decided to head up to Khol's, as I needed some shorts and sundresses for this terribly hot/humid summer.

Normally, my only mishaps in the dressing rooms are not being able to get a shirt or dress off; I get stuck, I laugh out loud, end up getting the garment off of myself without tearing it, and all is well.

This time, however, was almost utterly humiliating. No, I didn't get anything stuck this time.

I tried on a few shirts while still wearing my pants, but I wasn't wearing a bra because the cute little sleeveless top I was wearing that night did not need a bra with it. So, after trying on all of the shirts, I grabbed my purse and the clothes and opened the door to the dressing room. Just as I stepped out, I realized I had no shirt on. Yep, nude above waist. No bra. No shirt. Naked. BOOBS!!!

I quickly ducked back into the dressing room, locked the door and laughed hysterically. Oh yes, it doesn't take a lot to amuse me. If there were other women in that dressing room, I'm sure they thought I was a nut case and perhaps I was. Perhaps I was.

Thankfully, my husband and I got through the rest of the night with no other mishaps.

It Happens

Remember the scene in the movie “Home Alone” where the boy (Kevin) is walking alone and carrying two grocery bags.....and then the groceries fall through onto the ground?

Yeahhhhhhhhhh....that was me at the store today.

Good times.
