BYOC: A Day Late and a Dollar Short

Hey kids! Howz your holiday weekend shaping up? Mine? Okay, I guess. William is off for four days. He is underfoot until he goes back to work on Tuesday. Lord grant me patience. lol

I have been doing much better with the food, lately. I am also drinking plenty. Of water. I need it! It is hotter than the hinges of Hades around here. And it is a little humid today making it even worse. Blech! I don't mind the heat as much as I do humidity.

So, what else? I am doing laundry. Four loads. Good times. Did a little running around, yesterday. I am still mentally obsessing over a purse I saw in Ross. It was so pretty. And only thirty dollars. I am dying for a new purse. I really, really want to go get that one. If it isn't gone, already. In fact, I am going to head up there, later and see if it is still there. I have most of the asking price in cash, William has agreed to contribute the rest. So, new purse coming up. If it isn't gone.

I just want something new. Horrid and selfish, when the budget is so tight. When we have to buy a new battery for the other car. And I am already beginning to feel really bad and guilty about it.

I don't know.

Okay, so on to BYOC, I suppose.

1.  Let's stick with the pictures/exercise and shoe topic and post a picture of (or describe) your work out shoes.

BRB. I need to go grab my camera and fire off a shot of my shoes. 

Okay. I'm back. Here you go:

Yes. I have huge ass feet. :p

New Balance 580 running shoes.  Love these. They are sooo comfy and light and have a wonderful spring.

2.  Again with the summer/hot theme of the week....what does your current swimsuit look like?

You hear that noise? That is everyfuckingbody on the face of the planet laughing like a pack of hyenas at the very notion of me in a swimsuit.

3.  Do you lay out, fake bake, sunless spray tan or use tanning lotion?

I get a little sun when I go walking and I get a little golden. If I want to amp up the glow, I use sunless tanning lotion. My current fave is Jergen's Natural Glow in Medium/Tan. It gives really nice colour, is moisturizing and it doesn't smell as fonky as a lot of sunless tanners I have used. There is still that "tanner smell" but not nearly as bad as some. My batwings don't look nearly as obnoxious when they are nice and tanned. 

4.  Describe your week in blogland and in real life.

Already covered real life, above. In blogland, I am still being a neglectful ass of this blog. Not because I want to. I just don't feel as if I have anything substantive to say. I try to post, freak out and run. *sigh* I am such a weirdo. 

So, there you have it kiddies. BYOC. And what I am up to. Not a hell of a lot of anything, really. lol 

It is Fourth of July Weekend. I am really looking forward to the fireworks on Monday night. It is fun to sit out on our front deckony and relax, watch all the crazy ass traffic and ooooh! and aaaah! over the fireworks. 

Okay, I should run along. I need to get dressed. 


  1. Nice shoes!! I lay by TC's pool once a week and I mowed today for over 2 a nice tan right now!

  2. Well, at least you're keeping up with water. What have you been eating that's so good and on track? Take care, happy holiday weekend!

  3. You're getting in plenty of water. Better than I seem to be doing. sigh

    I have been working on a project for over 3 years for a major shoe company. I have several of their running shoes amongst others. I never would have given them a try otherwise. But, I'm glad I have some good ones for running.

  4. As long as I've known you, you've had periods of quiet when it comes to posting. Not often but it can definitely go days without hearing from my ShermieGirl. How long have we known each other now via the internet? 5+ years? 4? Are you still knitting? I know the purse lust. I often have shoe and purse lust. Sometimes furniture lust too. Art lust. Beyond that, I'm so low maintenance it isn't even funny. In fact, it is rather sad. I'm now dealing with one of Michael's SILs telling me I need to dye my hair because it makes me look old, especially when up in a bun. Which it often is because of the freaking humidity and heat here. Sometimes I'm sorely tempted. Then I remember the scalping and growing out process. And I remember the new gray roots showing up in about 3 days tops. Who wants to deal with white roots every couple of days? No exaggeration either. Every frakkin' couple of days!

  5. Love those shoes! Saw them when I got my cross trainers they had them in lime green too! I wanted crosstrainers though for the side to side support that works so well for Zumba. So glad to hear from you! Miss you when you aren't posting. :)

  6. I miss you so much when you don't blog!
