Dear Target:

Why, when I go in for one can of $24 baby formula, do I walk out with an additional $250 worth of merchandise? WHY? You've succeeded in making me your bitch several times in the past...must you continue to do so?

Although I *am* pleased with my new purse.

J-Man, my 4yo Target addict, wanted me to get this purse in orange but I figure khaki and white is more versatile and will take me in to summer. The orange one IS adorable though.

J-Man and *E* are being baptized this weekend. My daughter wore the same baptism gown that I wore as a baby. I couldn't decide if I wanted *E* to wear it or not. After I found these cute outfits, I decided that the boys would stick to boy clothes. This way Boo can pass the gown down to HER daughter(s).

J-Man's Baptism outfit:

*E*'s Baptism outfit:

Boo is wearing a cute pink skirt with matching shirt and shrug. Trying to pick out shoes for her was a pain in the ass. They had NO dress shoes for girls. We had to settle on these ~ which shouldn't be TOO bad because it is supposed to be in the high 50s here this weekend.


I'm in a funk tonight. You know how I know this? Because I can't stop listening to the "Comfortably Numb" cover by Aaron Lewis. Seriously...I want him to sing me to sleep ~ IN PERSON ~ every single night. Just sing. Nothing else.

(that last part was a lie...)

Is there anybody in there?
Just nod if you can hear me.
Is there anyone home?

Come on, now.
I hear youre feeling down.
Well I can ease your pain,
Get you on your feet again.

I need some information first.
Just the basic facts:
Can you show me where it hurts?

There is no pain, you are receding.
A distant ships smoke on the horizon.
You are only coming through in waves.
Your lips move but I cant hear what youre sayin.
When I was a child I had a fever.
My hands felt just like two balloons.
Now I got that feeling once again.
I cant explain, you would not understand.
This is not how I am.
I have become comfortably numb.

Just a little pinprick. [ping]
Therell be no more --aaaaaahhhhh!
But you may feel a little sick.

Can you stand up?
I do believe its working. good.
Thatll keep you going for the show.
Come on its time to go.

There is no pain, you are receding.
A distant ships smoke on the horizon.
You are only coming through in waves.
Your lips move but I cant hear what youre sayin.
When I was a child I caught a fleeting glimpse,
Out of the corner of my eye.
I turned to look but it was gone.
I cannot put my finger on it now.
The child is grown, the dream is gone.
I have become comfortably numb.

Get thee over to iTunes and download this song. Then join me in Funkville. I've got the Chardonnay.


Nesa sugar ~ Ariel is alive and well. In fact, she left me a mouse face on my back patio the other day. Yep, a mouse FACE. Nothing else. No body. No top of the head. Just the FUCKING FACE. Do you know how fucking NASTY that is? I couldn't bear to touch it to throw it in the pond, either. It just sat there and stared at me each time I let my dogs out.

Then one time I let my dogs in and the mouse face was gone.


Anyways, Ariel says Hello.

She's a sweet one, that cat.


I'm off to grab a glass of wine to see if my funk will get the fuck on with itself.

I hear you in regards to Target. The night before last I went in for JUST a can of lysol and spent over $80. How does that happen?!

I think you need to go back and get that orange bag. It's fun and that's what summer is about.
Go get it!!

I can completely relate on what you are saying about Target. That's why Target "window shopping" trips don't happen very often. They go from "window shopping" trips to "breaking the bank" trips. The purse and outfits are very cute. We've had several mice in our basement the last couple months that the cats have caught. Only a few have they left where we can find them. The rest must get away and die somewhere else. The dog usually finds them and we have to pry them from his mouth. Now that's nasty! I'm not a big fan of our dogs mouth anyway as his favorite food is kitty poop but add in prying a dead mouse out of there and it's plain revolting!! LOL!

It's a conspiracy that Target has. It's impossible to NOT spend a lot when you go in there. Cute clothes for the kiddos. As for Ariel's little gift, I'd have been gagging massively. Thank God Gracie's the strictly indoor type.

There was a hot orange bag at Marshall's that had me salivating. I, too, can live without an orange bag.
