If you haven't seen me around it's because I am just in a funk! I'm just not in the mood to read this week. So please make it easy for me and just post pictures. Let's make it wordless everyday!

I have random stuff to share. (now only if I could remember what it was) If you read my post it notes about "strikes here I come" well that didn't happen! A dear friend of mine at bowling took them all away. Yes she stole them from me so she could bowl her 300 game! Oh yes she did and it was awesome!!!!!!! I was lucky to get 345 for my three games. Yes, I sucked! Well I can only go up from here, at least I hope so.

Traffic was bad so it took me almost an hour to get to bowling, was late for the meeting. I live 25 miles away since I moved into our new home 4 years ago. I may not be a good bowler but it's so much fun to go each Tuesday and spend time with friends. Especially Headless Mom! We went out to lunch which was a nice treat.

After lunch I headed over to the DMV. Couldn't get an appointment and wanted my new license before my next trip. I could have just mailed it in but I wanted a new picture this time. It's been like 10 years. (I also had them add some numbers to my weight, it's not accurate but don't tell them that) So 45 minutes of standing outside in line and another 2 hours inside waiting in a chair I was finally taken care of. I am glad that is over!

Then it was another hour home. Normally I can get back and forth in about 30 minutes each way. No that didn't happen on Tuesday but it's all water under the bridge now, isn't it?

So how is your week going? I plan on going out today to do some shopping at Hallmark and maybe a run to Costco to pick up the steaks for our son-in-laws birthday dinner. He arrived home safely from his 10 day trip to Yellowstone Park and he bought me some awesome gifts.

Now these belong to my daughter. She collects the smashed pennies and so does a blogging friend of mine so I posted these for Kristin at The Goat to see.

Something I realized the other day is that I have to shop for some pants and shoes. I have a trip in late October to Chicago and I don't think my uniform will work. See I wear capri pants and Birkenstock sandals 24/7/365. The only other shoes I wear for long days like Disneyland are a pair of weird green born shoes which are awesome but don't go with anything. (I bought them years ago at QVC on their Shoes for Sales event 1/2 price) So I think I better find some born shoes to wear. I do have two closed toe Birkies that I could maybe wear socks with.

So as you may have noticed I obviously didn't listen to what I just told you because I didn't just post pictures. Do as I say not as I do!

P.S. Skye's recheck tests all came back great.

That sounds like a lot of driving and also waiting around, so I can see how you are a bit frazzled. Yet you did post words and pix. I like the gifts he selected, very cute. Are we on a similar schedule? My dh and I just returned from a big Costco food trip, including steaks.
I posted a cute photo of a skunk today on my blog, if you want to take a look.

xinex said...

Wow, your friend bowled a perfect score? That's awesome! When I was younger and pregnant, I was in a bowling league too. One time I bowled a straight strike from 1 to 8 but missed the last 2, lol. Too much pressure from everyone looking I think, but I scored 236. I could never forget that...Christine

LV said...

You made me tired from your active mind and actions. I used to love going bowling, but I could not even pick up a ball now. Sounds as though you do very well. You really did not need pictures, you tell it very well with out them. Nice post.

Mommy, I'm Home said...

So was it Headless Mom who bowled the 300 game?


The DMV is almost considered to be a curse word here in California. :-)

myletterstoemily said...

but the pictures you did post were great!

Sharon Kirby said...

No pics, but I'll make it short and sweet.

Bowling, "strike outs" happen, too :(
Traffic + California = road rage
DMV + California = waiting rage
Hallmark, love it ($)
Costco, love it (save $)
Souvenirs, awesome!
Shoes, you can never have enough shoes...
YAY for Skye!


purejoy said...

girl… you are way more patient than I at the DMV. sheesh. that's a long time for a new picture. but it is a fun place to people watch.

have missed you and will try to catch up!

i hear you on your shoe choices. i wear Chacos pretty much all day. Or no shoes at all. hate shoes. with. a. passion!

Shell said...

I hate shoes. If I'm forced to wear them, I wear flip flops.

I've been in a funk this week. Funk and crabby were probably my two most used words this week.

Randi Troxell said...

born shoes are awesome!
though really i am with her right up above me... normally i live in flip flops till it gets entirely too cold!!!!

this week has flown by.. which is a great things since i live for the wkend!!!!

Alexis AKA MOM said...

First off yeah on Skye's test :)

I've been in a funk too with check emails .. lol as you've noticed I'm reply to ones two weeks ago :)

Yup once had a lovely DMV guy look at me and say in his booming voice "Are you sure that is your correct weight" while doing the mean girl up & down look. Shove it dude add 5 (or 30).

The boys love the smooched pennies :). We always get them done at the zoo.

Trish said...

Hi Debby...was on vacation and then my computer got a bug so I have been out of touch for a while.
Why can't a trip to the DMV ever be
quick!? I know you breathed a sigh of relief when you finally m ade it home. lol
Happy shopping!

That corgi :) said...

glad Skye's tests came back okay; congrats to your friend on her 300 game!! it does sound like fun to be on a bowling league; we were on one years ago and I enjoyed the fellowship/friendship more than the bowling sometimes :)

LOL about the license and your weight; I have a standard weight I put on (which I am rarely at these days). It is ridiculous though with the lines at the DMV and I fear it will only get worse unless they find out ways to have the state bring in more revenue


Headless Mom said...

How funny Karen is to think the 300 was by me! ;-) And no, it was by a former teammate of ours. Figures, huh?

Mara said...

We have to supply them with a new (black and white) photo every ten years, which they will then turn into something that goes on my driving license. And having to put your weight on it? Ridiculous!

Just Be Real said...

Funk are okay Debby. You seemed to be busy besides feeling this way. Thank you for sharing. Blessings.

Colleen - the AmAzINg Mrs. B said...

It's so funny what one thinks when we first look at the pictures :
Love the Yellowstone stuff..
The pennies? My first thought was what GREAT award-belt-buckles for "Rodeo Barbie" they'd make..if they made a "Rodeo Barbie'!

Well, you can take the girl out of Arizona, but you can't take Arizona out of THIS girl, huh?

Have a great week-end my friend and give Skye a hug from Lulu & Braxton (actually, a butt-sniff would probably be more accurate, however....)

Christina Lee said...

My son just got his first smashed penny at the zoo and wants to collect them! ;--)

Trennia said...

I know you said,your not in the mood to read this week, so I'm making this short and sweet!So happy Skye's test came make with great!

Kirby3131 said...

My Friday Fragments this week is nearly all pictures! Funny that you would request it and I did it without knowing.

LOVE the smashed pennies :) The detail in them is just so cool. Thanks for posting them just for me lol It's all about me you know!

I hope your funk doesn't last too long :) and CONGRATS to your friend who bowled a 300. That's incredible!

Lynn said...

Glad Skye is doing good.
I bowled 41 once.

I can't imaging getting enough strikes to get 300!

Katherine said...

Don't you just LOVE traffic? So annoying.

Yep, I'd say you'll need some different attire for Chicago.

I was dated a guy who was a huge bowler. I was there the night his brother bowled a 300...the place went CRAZY!

Amy said...

we all have times like this. I went to Yellowstone when I was younger and had a great time. Have a nice weekend.

Amy said...

P.S. I am so happy for little Skye.. Yeah..

Valerie @ Frugal Family Fun Blog said...

Oh, I'm happy Skye checked out okay! Can't believe your friend bowled a perfect game!!! That is AMAZING!!!!!

Have a great weekend! xoxo

Holly said...

I haven't done much reading this week. It's just been too busy! (like any other is different. ha!) I hope to catch up this wkend but who knows!

Technodoll said...

Yey for Skye!!

I also haven't been in blog mood the past week, I'm soooo behind on all my faves that I'm afraid I'll never be able to catch up.


Hope I'll be forgiven and not forgotten... :-/

Good luck shopping!!

secret agent woman said...

I bought a pair of Skechers tone-up sandals (I believe Fit Flops are similar) and they are cool like regular flip flops but so comfortable.

I've been lagging on blog-reading - just busy lately.

jayayceeblog said...

Glad to hear your baby's tests came back great! That sounds like a long day with all the driving and the DMV. Wow, somebody actually bowled a 300?!?! I am so impressed. My scores are more like yours, but lower. =)

Unknown Mami said...

Good luck on the search for pants and shoes. I really need to get a new picture for my driver's license and I live very close to the DMV, but I can't bring myself to actually go in.

Sonya said...

sorry you are in a funk. I get that way sometimes. Mostly about writing my posts.

I used to collect those pennies. I have no idea where they are now. Probably got thrown away in several moves. :)
