Would you drop well over $400.00 at a Williams Sonoma store on condiments, spices, mixes, etc. without ever checking any prices, not watching the items being rung up (having NO clue on what items cost) then sign the bill without blinking an eye... we're NOT talking all-clad or any electric item...we're talking small package goods! I'm forever amazed at people's shopping trends...

"little girl" getting a pedicure while I'm waiting (or another adult) because it's her turn... that just bugs me...I know they are paying customers - I know it's really not their fault... someone had to bring them to the salon ... and I don't have a daughter, so maybe I have no business commenting... BUT - I'm forever amazed to see these squirts whose feet can't even reach the water being pampered. My first pedicure was the day before I was married... by a professional that is, every time before that was a grandmother or my mother "painting our nails"... And the last time I had a pedicure, the "little girl" next to me, maybe all of 8 years young, was on her cell phone!!!!!

One of the perks in working at a University is 1/2 day's on Fridays in the summer months... today is the first... out at 12:30 - just wonderful to get a "hop, skip and a jump" on the weekend. I know, many are closed ALL DAY FRIDAY in the summer, and yes, that would be great, but I'm grateful for what we have!!!

PS... A Toyota Matrix...small (good for a tight parking lot on campus and good on gas)... also rather cute (to me)... I'm happy.

Family Feud. Buy a new car (yes, we can ALL AGREE there is something VERY nice about a new car and driving it out of the showroom, no one else's "gump"... etc.) OR me saying, that's insane, we can get a good deal on a used car... We "usually" agree on big purchases, we have been "buttin' heads" this week...
And how can we complicate this... letting a 21 year old boy share his thoughts... I don't want a car payment...but yes, of course, I'd love a new car. My husband does not want "someone else problems"... I'm positive there are "good" used cars out there. Today our son went to check out 2 cars... took both to a mechanic we trust (not an oxymoron in this situation)... he said a big NO to both... You see, if we purchase a "used" car, it's the one our son will drive... A LOT of family negotiation going on right now... I'm really NOT a big car person, I want a safe and reliable car, my husband wants me to drive a new car, his is only a couple of years old and it's important to him (not to me) I'm VERY interested to see how this all pans out...

Summer. It's when the "fun begins". It's starts with coming home from college with ALL HIS STUFF... I love our son unconditionally... he brings great life and laughter into the house...BUT... I can do without the STUFF. Gearing myself up for sleepless nights, huge grocery bills, messy room ... but lot's of love, so it's all worth it - just takes a while to get back to that routine, again! Happy Mother's Day!!!
