Photos and Explanations

Remember me?  The person who used to blog a lot?  Yes, well, those were nice times, weren't they?  Between this place, school orientation this week, and dogs who look at me sadly every minute they are kept indoors not a whole lot of blogging has gotten done.  Plus, I find that I have to leave the house at 7am to get where I'm going on time and that puts a crunch on my mornings.  Mornings were my prime blog-writing time.  Until I come up with a solution to this terrible problem, I'm giving you a cop out post.  

This is designed to describe pretty much how I feel about most things social-media-ish these days.  I'm actually TOO apathetic to post these pictures to Instagram.  So here's all the phone pictures that I've taken in the last couple of weeks that could've made it onto social media, but haven't…just because.  

Jett at the Starbucks drive-thru.

They catered Noodles and Co. for lunch the other day.  I think everyone just fell into a food coma and heard nothing that was said all afternoon.

I won some PB2 on Brittany's blog.  It's the perfect addition to smoothies.  If you're a smoothie drinker, pick some up!

How to keep half an avocado good in the fridge for 3 days:  leave the pit in it, wrap it in plastic wrap, seal in an air-tight container.  I was impressed. 

I ordered some necessities from Amazon Prime Pantry (have you tried it?) because the worst thing in the world is going to the grocery store.  The second worst thing is having to buy cleaning supplies while you're there.  Such a hassle.  My only complaint with Prime Pantry is that it took a WEEK for it to get here.  We pay for Prime, so that should be 2-day shipping, right? 
Side note:  I used to like grocery shopping.  I should correct that to "the worst thing in the world is going to Wal-Mart". 

I asked Scott, when he came home from work on Friday night at 8pm, if he could "raise the curtain rod in the unicorn room".  He just laughed and went to sleep.  I did it myself and I only messed up twice.  Much better, right?

Scout is so spoiled.  He will ONLY eat salmon dog food.  He is an Alaskan at heart.  

The man at the library scolded me, for the second time in 2 months, because I didn't know Scott's staff duty number.  Since my library membership is dependent on the army, they won't let you borrow without all the information filled out.  Apparently, I look like the kind of person who doesn't return library materials.
These books were brand-new and free, so I took a bunch in exchange for the embarrassment I had to deal with at the counter.
And today, I made sure to return an audiobook that was due…today.


  1. I keep meaning to order some PB2 to try it's about $12.00 for a 2-pack on Amazon, does that sound about right? None of the stores have it here so I have nothing to compare it to.

    The curtain rod looks a lot better! Good job.

  2. PB2 is great in smoothies. Although I didn't like it much in the mix-with-water form they encourage.

    I'll have to try that trick with the avocado.

  3. I hate grocery is not fun at all.

  4. J and I both chuckled at the Jett in the drive thru picture! I like a good old fashioned "cop out' post every now and again. I was wondering where you were though when I noticed you weren't popping up in my feed. Clearly I'm an awesome friend bc I totally texted you about it...or I got busy and forgot. Yeah, probably the last one. Whoops.

  5. I totally find grocery shopping therapeutic. Now cooking on the other hand...PURE FORM OF TORTURE!!

    I wish I could get Lily to eat food period. She is such a high maintenance dog she will only eat hard food if you HAND FEED her it! And now she seems to be having an aversion to the soft dog food she in she is on a strike from eating it.

  6. I've never tried grocery shopping at amazon but I def think I should try it!!!

    I hope orientation goes well!!

  7. I've used the keeping an avocado fresh trick occasionally...but only occasionally, because avocados are awesome, and I rarely only want half. :)

  8. I was so excited to try PB2, and I didn't like it at all. Wah...I should look into Prime Pantry. We have a gazillion stores near us but you make a great point on the cleaning supplies. I laugh every time you call it the Unicorn Room ;)

  9. Amazon Prime Pantry! I would love to order the stuff I hate shlepping. I'm going to check it out.

  10. My parents dog runs the roost and he'll sit just like Jett as much as he can while Dad drives. Its just adorable!
