While doing some banking online and watching Jamie Oliver on tv, I was kind of irked that the interrupting commercial break advertised Kentucky Fried Chicken. Of all the fast food/fried chicken places, this one is probably the worst one. ICK. (And I like fried chicken but not with abused, factory raised poultry.)
Ironically, Jamie was cooking chicken. Fresh, organic, farm-raised, 20-minute chicken. Looked much better than the commercial, if you ask me.
This was the second thing that irked me today, the commercial. The first thing was booger kid on Cynthia’s blog. OMG I’m still shuddering at the gif in my head. 😛
(THANKS, friend.) 🙂
We’re dog sitting today. It’s going to be stupid hot later this afternoon and both kids have games in Timbuktoo which means driving and traffic and construction so I’m trying hard to keep a level head about this whole ordeal. I’m going to leave Molly at home. She’ll be much more comfortable here I think than stuck in a hot car and then at a hot and dusty baseball field.
Frankly, I would have preferred to just book off, but getting out of this house will actually be a good thing for me, since I’m having a hard time getting myself re-acquainted with this life I am currently in.
Do you ever get bored of same old same old?
I don’t know why I feel so down after vacationing in Europe (first vacation we’ve had in 16 years so I refuse to feel guilty about it) but I am just not feeling it. Getting right back into the hectic routine of things to do and schlepping kids to places and shopping and cooking and catching up on household stuff…blah.
You ever fantasize about the kind of break you’d love to take if money wasn’t an issue? I mean, I don’t need a lot of money to get away from it all but doing it without money is not an option since I will not sleep in the bug infested woods during the 40 degrees Celsius heat wave where the mosquitoes are the size of beetles. What would I eat? Roots, weeds and berries? Where would I sleep?
I wish I was back here:
I can just imagine myself decompressing there for a few weeks. Who wants to join me?
Next week I will resume reporting on the vacation we just had and post more pictures. Until then, I will follow my bullet journal’s advice where I wrote these words:
