With it being Fiscal Year End at work, my life has pretty much consisted of wake up… work all day… eat supper… CRASH! 🙂 Stress over-load has turned me into a zombie (which is must better than a screaming, crying wife, so Nate really does owe me one). 😉
Although Nate did mention yesterday that he misses the chatty, bubbly Nicole. In fact, he might even miss the Nicole that’s constantly pulling out her camera to snap a pic for her blog. Okay, okay. I made that last part up. So what if I whip my camera out while we’re shopping in Bed, Bath, and Beyond? He had found a motion-sensored toothpaste dispenser. Seriously. Who knew they even made those? Someday, we’ll show that pic to our grandchildren and say, “This was the first motion-sensored toothpaste dispenser we ever saw. We used to actually have to use our muscles and squeeze the toothpaste ourselves.” Our grandchildren will probably look up from their 3-D televisions and reply by saying, “What are muscles?”
Honestly, I took the pic, because I found the contraption to be so ridiculous and entertaining. Please tell me that people aren’t so lazy and in such a hurry that they can’t just squeeze out their own toothpaste!
Anyway, getting back to the chatty and bubbly Nicole that Nate misses. I assured him that she will be back soon. I imagine that vacation (here in two weeks) will bring an even chattier and bubblier Nicole back. So he should enjoy the quiet now. 🙂 It won’t last long.
Other than walking around like a zombie and shopping in Bed, Bath, and Beyond, I haven’t been doing much. Sarah and I went shopping for a bit on Saturday, but neither one of us brought our cameras. She has a cold and I’m a zombie, so we didn’t take any photos. You should thank us for sparing you. 😉
I did take pics of the (drum roll please) canned pumpkin I found in the grocery store!! It’s a wonder there were any cans left because there was this girl taking as many as her arms could carry… Oh, wait, that was me.
Just kidding! But I did buy four cans, because there is a pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins, and another pumpkin pie just waiting to be made. (Nate said that if I run out of pumpkin, I could always buy a fresh one and use that. I told him that the day I have time to cut open, seed, cook, mash, and drain a fresh pumpkin for a pumpkin pie will be the day that I have too much time on my hands).
Well, one week left of Fiscal Year End. Two weeks to vacation. Let the countdown begin!!
