Constant cravings

"mmm...did somebody say steak?" I have been craving protein lately, most specifically juicy steak. And oranges. Go figure. I've been to the store for meat 3 times this past week. But yesterday I hit the jackpot! Mr. Mott had called from Home Depot needing my assistance with a large lumber purchase/hauling. So back out in the heat I went.

Turns out the wood was too big for my car too, so we had to call for backup. While we waited, a man was circling the parking lot talking to people. If you've ever visited the Midtown Home Depot, then you've probably been harassed by all sorts of different people in need. Ryan mentioned that he thought he heard the guy saying he needed gas money, so I put my downtown savvy big girl panties on and braced myself for the inevitable. Turns out it was the Street Meat Guy. The street meat guy comes through your neighborhood usually going door to door trying to sell you meat out of a freezer in his truck. Kinda sketchy huh? Totally! I would typically send this kind of flesh solicitation packing if both my parents and my sister hadn't had good luck with this very thing. And my need for beef is only getting worse, so I listened to his schpeal. Claims he ran out of gas on his route and had to turn off his freezer. So not only was he stranded in the Home Depot parking lot, but his precious meat was thawing in the 110 degree heat index early evening sun. He needed gas money, I needed meat and a sweet bargain was reached. 8 sirloins and 8 butterflied filets for $15! Can I get a "HELL YEAH!"

Thank you Street Meat Guy! Its steak night at my house for a couple weeks anyway. Hope you made it home

Everybody was Kung Fu fighting!

I was just telling her grandma yesterday that even though I've felt our daughter move and kick from the inside, it couldn't be felt from the outside yet, but shouldn't be long.... Well a few hours later *BLAM*! There it was, her kung fu debut. I only felt it twice last night, but today, she's a karate kid kicking machine!And here I am just sitting here at my work computer with my hands in the waste band of my pants, givin my belly the death grip with a goofy grin on my face and teary eyes. I'm sure it's quite the sight, but no one's said anything yet :D

Mommy Brain

I've heard of this phenomenon and thought it was a joke, but its totally real. You try to yell at your dog, but use your husband's name instead (dirty look) or drop your brand spankin new expensive smart phone 3 times in less than 5 minutes (another dirty look). I swear the thing JUMPED right out of hand. Thrice! Today I have finally accepted that I am living in Crazytown, population 1 1/2.

I came to work this morning without any eye make-up on and left my phone at home. BUT I got 2 loads of laundry done and put away, rearranged above the kitchen cabinets, got the flowers watered and the pups fed all before 9 am. So I feel I am faring pretty well in this half-witted OCD nesting world I am stuck in. I might have forgotten my best friend's last name, but at least my closets are organized.
