What I Know For Sure - 23rd Edition

1. Maggie has strep throat. She canceled my hair appointment today but had the girls at the salon mix up my red hair color for  me. I picked it up and did it myself at  home. There may be a reason you have to have a license to do hair. Presently, I have monkey ears and it appears someone killed  a monkey in my bathroom. I can't care because my hair turned out great.

2. Caroline is also sick. When I had her yesterday she started running a fever. She would holler I need a rag on my eyes. I need a rag on my hand. Whatever hurt needed a damp cloth. At one point she was sporting 3 rags.

3. When you are constantly over-booking yourself it is not wise to plant a gazillion pots that need watered daily.

4. The truth hurts. It may not hurt as bad as slamming your head on an open cabinet door( and truthfully, that hurts like heck) but nonetheless the truth hurts.

5. I am a huge fan of Jeffery Lewis. I adore a smart acre who has great design sense. He reminds me of someone.

6. I had to get 2 broken teeth fixed this week. My dentist patched them with more filling and saved me mega bucks. No one tells you old teeth happen. I think George Washington may have tried.

7. Everett graduated preschool this week. (sob) In the program he said when he grows up he wants to be a train driver at the zoo. I think his plan is genius. He always goes 100 mph and is part animal.

8. My girls and I are doing an antique show this weekend at 3rd Sunday Market in Bloomington, IL. It is at a fairgrounds with lots of fair food. This year there will be no mini donuts for me because I don't want Porta-Potty mini craps.

9. I can never type don't correctly. It always comes up don;t. I only misspell that one. Can't, won't, etc. I type correctly. 

10. You should always keep your promises. Promise me you will.

11. Word verification for blog comments is killing me. I do not need the grief. I can't want to work that hard. Just make me type don;t.

12. Drinking 64 ounces of water daily will make you look and feel betterIt will also keep you looking for a Porta-Potty.

13. There is nothing funny about hitting your funny bone. Well, except for what people say when they do. Next time holler... I need a rag!

14.  A bad Elvis impersonator is better than no Elvis impersonator at all. There was one at Dad's today. I saw some swooning. And some snickering. My funny sis, Linda said "Don't be cruel."

 15. Make it a habit to do nice things for people who never find out it was you. You can start with me.

16. Listen to your children. And remember when they are quiet, trouble is brewing.

17.  Someone tried to scam me this week...but I am sharp. I know better than send money to book a time share in Nigeria. Or send money to rent my timeshares to someone else and then they will rent it to a third party and mail me huge money. If it sounds to good to be true... it is. 

18. Why must I keep re-learning that too much watermelon is too much watermelon? I am not looking for a cleanse but I found one.

19. I need a pedicure and a manicure but I am too busy watering flower pots.

20. Bleach cleans up hair color in a sink. I haven't tried it on my ears. I am now taking appointments and buying bananas.


  1. I love coming here.

    You crack me UP.

    I really think we could sit aside each other in rocking chairs and talk about nothing all day long.

    Do you say hose pipe? I need to know.


  2. I love you. That is all. And everything. I thank the Lord that you happened upon me ole blog. xo

  3. Sounds like it's been kind of rough out in your direction? (Or is it just me?) Sure hope everyone recovers in time for the Bloomington show....and that you can find someone you trust to water your plants that day. And, by the way, you;re not the only one who can;t type don;t!

  4. I need a rag. For my heart.
    Hope your girls feel better.

  5. oh bloomington/normal! my son lived there for several years, attending the college. we made that drive many times. wish i knew you then.
    i hear ya on the teeth issue. after our hawaii adventures i get to be a queen!
    okay, really just getting my broken tooth crowned. it's my first 'crowning' of any kind so feeling i might as well celebrate.
    my continuous mis-typed word.. hte....others might spell it the.

    64 ounces huh?
    maybe i'll work towards that goal, but after this weekends road trip moving "the baby" to her new apartment.

    happy weekend with prosperous selling!

    p.s. now on continuous play in my mind is hte (i told u) song..don't be cruel.

  6. i saw that elvis on instagram and i had no idea it was you! hilarious. i have yet to identify who's who on instagram. confusing. i need to drink more water. maybe that's why i can't lose weight...or the cupcake or the cookies or the lack of exercise this week. what can i's been an off week! wish i was there for third sunday market. i've always wanted to go there! went years ago and got the coolest bench. have fun girlie.

  7. I just want you to keep typing up these lists. I wish you would write one every day and I could wake up and find it in my mailbox. You make me smile.

    Don't be cruel--bah!

    I typed don't correctly on my first try. Don't hate me.

  8. I don't know where to had me spitting coffee on the computer this morning! I AM laughing at your misfortunes, Miss Janie and I am sorry...kinda. The ears...the Elvis...Have a good Friday and have fun this weekend.

  9. I sure did enjoy that - you made me laugh - hope the little ones get better! Love, sandie

  10. through it all, you maintain your humor! it's a wonderful gift! i hear you on the broken teeth and i hope your little one feels better soon.

  11. You is kind. Thank you for the nice comment. #18 - that's been a problem for me as well. Just can't stop. I hope the adorable Miss Caroline is feeling better.
