Today...I...wenttoWal-mart. Phew, there it is, out in the open. But I promise, there was a good, sound reasoning behind my sacrelige. And besides, when you look like this (pretend there is an arrow pointing down at the picture) then you know you TOTALLY fit in at the devils store. First, about this hat, and look Mags is sporting. Her Auntie Julie came over to watch her and was wearing this hat. Maggie was totally taken with said hat and insisted on wearing it around. It was quite funny, and you have to admit, she looks cute, if not a touch on the white trashy side.
Ok, so how did this blasphemy come about...ME in Wal-mart when I JUST posted about how I hate that store and won't go. Well, it's like this. We never made it to the store yesterday due to Maggie having melt downs and me having a little "tummy trauma" if ya know what I mean. So, today, after a lovely morning of playing outside, Maggie napping, etc. I got up the courage to load all 3 kiddies in the car. Do you have any idea how freaking annoying it is to squeeze my big bootay into the far back of the van so I can buckle Brooklyn in. I have to do this and try not to kill Maggie with my said large booty backing out of the van so I can then buckle Maggie in. Well, trust me on this, it is VERY annoying and awkward. So, I got them all situated and was heading toward Target when I began to think about what I needed to do. I also needed some grocery items and would need to go the store for that too. As I pondered the situation and the possibilities and the fact that I'd have to do the booty squeeze a total of 4 times (in and out) by going to 2 stores, I quickly deducted that I'd rather eat razor blades, so what were my other options. Sadly, the only store that fit the bill of me only needing to get out once was Wal-mart. I took a deep breath, changed my course and off we went. All in all, it wasn't a bad experience. I got what I needed, possibly saved a dollar or two and was on my way. So, there you have it, I defected, but only this once. I'm sure you can see how it was necessary to do so. And Dixie, you can stop rolling your eyes. I can't help it if you are freakishly attached to that store.
Speaking of Dixie...it has been brought to my attention that I did not give proper shout outs and kudos to her for the oh so clever sign off of "armchairs and honeybees." Little does she know that I TOTALLY gave her credit for it when my sister Jenny laughed out loud at it and thought it was so funny. The thing is, many a year ago when Dixie was off at Ricks and I was slaving away here in AZ, we would write eachother letters. Well, for whatever reason, she signed off one of her letters that way and it began a very hysterical exchange between us on every letter. I have always remembered and used many more times the "armchairs and honeybees" signoff. So there you go, hope you feel properly shouted out to Dixie.
In an effort to properly document 3 of 3 t-shirts, I TRIED to take a picture. However, Maggie was having NONE of it. I tried everything, and this was seriously ALL she would give me. I begged, I pleaded, I cajoled....NOTHIN. I ask you, HOW am I to properly exploit my child in modeling, beauty pageants, TV and movies, so she can make me millions of dollars if she REFUSES to cooperate? I now know that the reason such ugly babies like Mary Kate and Ashley Olson made millions in TV was because ugly or not, they were totally willing to do WHATEVER grownups told them. For reals..think back to the hideous show that was Full House, remember that UGLY baby? Yeah, those twinners made their parents LOTS of money. Oh Maggie, why can't you just behave? Clearly she doesn't recognize the goldmine she's sitting on. Tee hee hee
Well, this is getting way to long, and I have other things I want to cover, but I guess I'll have to save it for another time. Oh except this....
KUDOS to Lana for totally getting the Strong Bad quote in my last post. You now have my love and admiration forever and ever and ever. Not that you didn't already have it, but it's just increased.
