Whew!

I feel a little like something’s missing with the A to Z Challenge being over. But I have so many things to catch you guys up on now!

  • Ian downloaded a random number generator app, and Rainbow Catcher was the winner of my April bag giveaway! I’ve already got it cut out, and I’ll e pinning after I post this. Do tell me you like sequins–I have a perfect match for your bag. Just one row, no overkill, I promise!
  • What shall I give away next? I’m open to suggestions!
  • We had pop-up pizza pie for dinner last night. No pics, but it turned out just like Lynn’s did. So yummy! I used some Italian seasoned ground turkey (gotta love clearance meats, y’all!), and we are definitely going to have it again.
  • I learned tonight that I have apparently missed Facebook. I downloaded the app last week for NIAW and spammed my friends with links, then deleted it again Sunday, because who needs it, right? But then one of Ian’s coworkers invited a bunch of people to karaoke tonight, and this one girl had to spoil a perfectly fine comment thread by being a grammar nazi. Yes, spelling is important, but jeez, let it go if it’s a perfectly readable word. I can’t stand that. And when I pointed that out without namecalling, she decided I was being a bitch. I just couldn’t let it go, because if you want to be a grammar nazi, proofread your own comments. So I admit it, I stooped to a high school level on Facebook. Shame on me!
  • Seriously, WTF Warner, yanking titles from Netflix. So annoying.
  • It’s birthday month here! Mine on the 12th, Abby’s on the 19th, and Ian’s on the 23rd. Along with my brother’s, my cousin’s, Cheryl’s, and my parents’ anniversary. Let us make it through!
  • And Maggie nominated me for a Liebster Award! I’ll get to that post tomorrow. Thank you Maggie!
  • Oh! One more thing. Abby has a new friend. The catch? She’s in sixth grade. She’s come over almost every day this week. She’s a nice enough girl, a little shy, but what can I say about that? There just aren’t any other girls her age in our neighborhood. Also, we have a pool. When Ian talked to her mom she sounded happy about it, so while it seems a little odd, at least she and Abby have fun. So, whatevs.
  • That may be all, or I may have forgotten one of the things I meant to say when I started. I’m sure I’ll remember in the middle of the night. I’ll leave you with a picture of Abby sporting her Bubble Guppies shirt, Grandma Inez-made shorts, and new dinosaur bag

      Older child friend = possible babysitter in a few years (assuming they’re still friends). Go go contacts!

      I hear you on being a grammar nazi. I have to control mine…and whenever I DO correct someone, I try very hard to make sure all of my spelling is correct in that post. No good being a hypocrite!!

        Lol, we have a babysitter; my best friend’s daughter is 12 and dying to sit! But yeah, it’s nice to have a possible backup.

        Yeah, I had to point it out when she followed ‘stfu’ up with calling me ‘ingnorant.’ And the lols commenced.

      Hey you, no reflection post on the a-z challenge?

      And there is a ‘road trip’ coming up for those who want to keep playing πŸ™‚ I guess it’s a way to wrap it up with those who stuck with it which is nice.
