There are SO many squirrels in Lincoln. Nathan was reading the Dangerous Book for Boys and one night I looked over to see what he was reading about and the title said, "How to Hunt and Kill a Rabbit." I asked him if he could apply the same techniques to squirrels. What?!?! If he hunted and killed them, we would eat them! I have heard squirrel is delicious!
This was a fast one...just got his tail.
Looks like she thinks she is going to fall off the earth if she doesn't hold on.
Someday...Well they are in our back yard right now...just in pots. Right outside our living room window.
Nice big window and two cute little White Pine trees.
She past out.
This was another day, entirely...but, everyday she's so cute!
Well, anyway, usually we do our grocery shopping on Tuesday nights but, Tuesday, we had a bad day. Something along the lines of bills being wrong and having to make multiple phone calls and explain the situation 50x’s to 25 different people…ya, had to explain it twice to most of them. Okay! I’m exaggerating, but you get the picture. THEN, our air conditioner leaked, for a couple of days, and we just realized the leak, Tuesday, right before we were going to leave for the grocery store. We decided to clean up the mess and go shopping the next day…which was today.
(flashback – background info)
Back in the day when I started this blog…Nathan was kind of “anti-blog guy.” He wouldn’t read it at first…I had to beg him. Then, he came around. And then, I started begging him to read other peoples’ blogs. He would tease me and call them brags instead of blogs and now he’s all up in the brag…I mean the blog reading frenzy. He has found a lot of friends from his past and even friends from his past that don’t have blogs…he TOTALLY wishes that they did!!! I also have a HUGE list of blogs I check everyday for new posts and he reads all of those too! Well, the ones of people he has met...that's where he draws the line.
So, now that I can “brag” about our shopping trip…here I go.
I haven’t bought ice cream since we moved here. I know!!! That’s like 6 whole weeks! It was the thing I went totally overboard on while I was pregnant so, I had to cut back for awhile. OH THAT MEADOW GOLD TIN CAN ALLEY!!!! (They don't have Meadow Gold here...BUMMER!!!) But, this shopping trip I made sure to put ice cream on the list (we try really hard not to buy things that are not on the list.) I actually put rainbow sherbet on the list…its fat free you know, that's how it got to stay on the list, I totally got away with it! But, once we were on the ice cream isle and I saw all those creamy delicious frozen recipes of goodness! I started begging Nathan for some ice cream. Sealed the deal when I found HIS favorite…Peppermint Stick (they usually only have that around Christmas time). Since he got his favorite and technically ice cream WAS on the shopping list…I got TWO flavors for myself!!! Ha ha! I am SO tricky! Plus, I gotta find a new favorite.
That wasn’t even the part that was the greatest thing to brag about. We were right on budget when we checked out, again!!! We are doing GOOD! Buying the ice cream and stayin’ on budget! YESSSSS!!!!
