Monday Morning

A quiet Monday morning around the house.  Joey is still sleeping.  I got to sleep in and actually was able to.  I'm usually up no later than 5 am even when I'm off.

Becky was here to visit yesterday; laundry totes in hand.  We went to Sam's Club (my old nemesis) so she could open a membership.  Actually, we split it (I'm hoping this isn't a poor choice I made).  I had a Sam's Club membership for many years in Pgh.  I didn't renew it when we moved here because there was no Sam's even remotely close.  Sort of a good thing because I put myself in some large debt at Sam's.  I was so tempted by all the neat things there.  A Sam's was opened here two years ago.  I didn't even think of joining again because I didn't want to tempt my problem with self-control there.

I was very good yesterday but Lordy was it hard.  I don't need any bulk food but Sam's does have some unique "goodies."  Yeah...I resisted.  I did buy some great steaks and boneless pork chops to throw on the grill for dinner last night.  And....of course.....I did buy myself a Steelers hoodie since I have no Steeler things to wear on Black and Gold Friday, which has become every Friday now.

LOL.....I'm calling a J-Land truce between my two Colorado buddies, Deb and David, since, of course, Pittsburgh is playing the Bronco's this coming week.

If you get a chance, stop over at Sharon's Golf and Other Stuff... journal.  She has an entry where you leave a link to your own favorite journal entry.  There's some good reading even if you don't share one.  Great idea, Sharon!

I love the graphic that one of my PSP group buddies made me.  It reminds me of Megan because she was so into the Disney princesses when she was small.

My graphic below reminds me of Megan...no matter how frustrated I get with her, she does have some adorable attributes.  She ends every conversation with the word "smooches."  Just had to put this graphic up.  Smooches to my three museketeers.

How cute with smoochies! Matt says "I love you" every time we get off the phone or leave (even around his friends; I think that's neat).

We had a Sam's Club in New Mexico; Costco here. Both dangerous.

OMG, I love Sam's club too.  Just went there the other day!  But I too have a hard time controlling myself.  Have to stay completely away from the candy isle. lol  I loved that disney tag, I snagged it.  Did you make that kisses tag at the bottom?  That is really cool.  GBU, Shelly

I was wondering how you made the Disney princess icon. I think it's great! I want one for my myspace now. You're a trend-setter.

Chris,  Is there a football game this weekend?  I will gladly join you in a truce.  I will more than likely be skiing........   I loved Sharon's idea of posting our favorite entry.  I have a couple I might repeat.  David
