If I posted something, huh? I know I have to post the Cherry Blossom pics, but I am still overwhelmed at the thought. Maybe I will have Wallene guest post for me. :) Thank you for your nice comments on the last post. She is told that a lot because she really IS a happy kid. And my baby sweetheart.
I have been good and have kept up with reading, commenting and visiting facebook, but there is not a whole lot going on in the pond these days that is exciting. [To you guys anyway. :)]
I do have a few things that made me go "whaaat?" this past week.
1. My blood tests came back with good news except for two areas. One area was my vitamin K which was a bit low. I found this a little odd since I eat a lot of [dark] greens and cabbage, but, okay, I will be a good girl, follow the doctor's orders and pick the prescription she called in for me at Rite Aid. For 5 pills and insurance paying some of the total the prescription cost $30. FOR FIVE FREAKIN' VITAMIN PILLS. THIRTY DOLLARS. Jeesh.
2. I know they have been dooming and glooming that the price of beef was going to go up with the price of corn and gas, but holy angus steak batman. I am shocked! One of our favorite meals is pot roast. It used to be a cheap roast that we slow cooked to make it oh-so-moist-and-tender. Well, one of those puppies won't be darkening my crock pot anytime soon. I checked the price today and for a roast that would feed our family of 3, with one added lunch for Dad [i.e. it was small], was $23! Are they kidding? Food prices have sky rocketed as a whole, but that has more than doubled in price in just over a month. I should've stocked up when I could get them for $10 each. We bought chicken and pork instead. It is a good thing we eat very little red meat, but when you want red meat, you really want red meat.
3. While shopping today I actually saw a father swat his kid on the rear end with a roll of wrapping paper. He wasn't playing around either. The kid kept whining about something and the father told him to stop. When the kid didn't stop the father whacked him, twice. Great. Now the kid was screaming bloody murder. I know the father didn't hurt him, but honestly? If they are getting on your nerves then take them home. And leave the wrapping paper here. [Although once home he might use his hand. :shudder:]
That's about all for today - hope everyone had a nice weekend and there is something upcoming this week that will put a smile on your face.
See ya' on the flipside!
