I'd have a beer right now but I'd probably bust my teeth!

I have had quite an interesting 24 hours.  In no particular order:

Fell off of the couch while playing Wii golf not once, but twice!  (Alcohol WAS a factor)

Ripped half a toe nail off, OUCH!

While mowing got stung repeatedly in the calf by a ground bee/ yellow jacket, which then got stuck on my sock.  I ran across the yard, throwing my shoes and socks off and now I am pretty sure my neighbors think I am crazy!.

Twisted my ankle by slipping in the mud mowing up the back hill.

The Benadryl I took for the bee stings kicked in while I was grocery shopping.  I was asked several times if I needed help shopping.  I wonder how bad I really looked.....

Got soap in my eye while in the shower.

Gums swelled up when I flossed.

You get the gist!  So, as I said before I would really love to have an ice cold Blue Moon right now, but I am afraid I will somehow bust my teeth out with the bottle.  I know, I'll just pour it in a glass and enjoy.

At least I know tomorrow HAS to be better!

Family Vacations

Each and every year since I have been married the hubby and I go on a family vacation/reunion.

He is the youngest of 5 and our entire blended family comes to stay in one house. Brothers, sisters, mommers, nephews and wife.

If we weren't so close knit it would be sheer hell.

We spend the week playing Shanghai rummy, Scrabble, Trivial Pursuit, Zombies, etc. Good thing we all like playing games!

Stress comes and then leaves as soon as it comes. No bickering, no arguing, just trying to figure out what to eat for dinner with a minimum of 4 vegetarians at any given time.

I got lucky to marry into a unique/ open family. I can't imagine what a family vacation would be with my side.....

Count your blessings while you can!

I went out earlier today to get some spring cleaning supplies and storage containers. Since Dollar General is right down the hill I decided to go there. I picked up my supplies and headed out the door. I was carrying 3 storage boxes when the wind seriously picked up.

So, there I was walking to my car when the lid flew off the top storage box and WHAM hit me right in the face. Seriously, why me?!?

Apparently it was really funny for the other customers in the parking lot because they just looked at me and laughed. I'm just glad I didn't break my glasses.

I will never dye my own hair again!

So...... Three weeks ago on a Friday I decided I was tired of my hair color and ever growing roots and I needed some new color. I usually dye it a medium brown/red but this time thought "why not dark brown!?!"

I head off to the local Target and pick out an expresso brown, came home, and began the hair dying ritual.

Not really a ritual but a routine. I change into a pair of black yoga pants and black shirt just in case the dye drips. I mixed the color together and follow the directions on the package. Applied hair color and set the timer for 20 minutes, the time it says on the box.

12 minutes later the hubby walked by and asked if I was trying to dye my hair black. I said "um, no" and then looked in the mirror.

Now anyone who dyes their hair knows that it always looks darker before it is rinsed out, but this was alarmingly dark. I decided to not chance it and rinsed my hair.

My hair was BLACK. And by BLACK, I mean BLACK!!!!!

Oh shit!

Stop by later this week to see what happened next!

I need to get back to my roots!

I have been away for far too long. Cursed Facebook! I got in such a habit of updating things there that I forgot how much I enjoy blogging.

Enough said!

More accident prone antics from yours truely!

I have become a wii addict. I just can't stop playing. Being a physical sort a game system all kinds of things can go wrong when you are accident prone like me. For example:
  • Fell off the wii board while playing Shaun White snowboarding game and twisted my ankle
  • Got waaaay into mariocart and lost my balance and fell over
  • tossed a wii mote while golfing. Fortunately it went back instead of through the TV!
Just to name a few. Good times, good times!
