Random Meanderings

This post rambles.
No direction.
In no particular order.

My washing machine decided to give up the ghost on Sunday.  I knew it was coming, it hasn't been feeling quite like itself lately.  I went to Sears where they had a pretty good sale on their appliances and got a print out of the models I wanted with the prices from the associate.  Then I went to Lowes.  They matched the price, offered free next day delivery, free pickup of old machines plus a gift card worth 10% of the purchase price.  Bought these:
Whirlpool high efficiency something or other.  Too many options and blinking lights and strange noises for my taste but I'll get used to them.  I'm really looking forward to the day when we finally catch up with the Jetsons and stand under a laser beam where we are bathed, dried, makeup'ed and clothed.

I received my free Valspar paint sample in the mail that I ordered last week.  Have you heard about this?  Valspar is offering a free sample of paint in a kit that includes a mini tray, sponge rollers, and other paint chips that compliment the paint sample you've chosen. 
I chose Ginger Sugar.  It's a pale yellow.  Valspar is giving 100 of these away including free shipping every day.  I'm not sure how long this promotion is going on so be sure to stop by the website and check it out.

I've been drinking one of these smoothies every morning.  They're really filling and tasty.
Ground Flax seed
Almond milk
Greek yogurt

I've been feeling a little out of sorts this week.  Not sure why.  Maybe I'm going through mental paws.  I'm tired and want to sleep a lot.  Not much energy.  Not liking myself.  Now you know somethings wrong if I don't like myself because, seriously, what's not to like, right?  This sign hanging in my entertainment center pretty much describes how I've been feeling lately.

I think I need horror moans.

Yes, I take those horror moans...I'm way post mental paws. Love the sign. The lunch next week will cheer you right up. (Please talk normal as I am NOT really the English teacher type. ;o)

Oh, forgot to tell you L.O.V.E the washer and dryer. The paint color is soothing and cheerful.

LOL! You're a funny gal today, Holly! Sorry about you not feeling so well. I have days like that too! Hate 'em!
Your sign is cute and the paint sounds great. I love Valspar paint! :)
Thanks for popping in to see me.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

I love getting new appliances. Lucky girl. I'm out of it too. Can't keep my eyes open. Not really awake till 12 or 1. Take two naps in the morning with Madelyn and that still doesn't help. Maybe it's in the air. We'll get back into it. =) Miss ya!

ain't for city gals said...

I'm passed the mental pause but girl I feel for you if you are just starting! I gave up the hormones but wish I had not..give us lots to talk about at lunch!

Connie said...

Yippee about the washer and dryer. I know you've been wanting to do this for some time now. You'll love them, tons of lights and all. Im still thinking I need a degree in rocket science to work mine LOL

Im out of it today too. It must be going around. MY excuse is my husband txt messaged me 3 times, starting at 3am - to let me know he was at the airport and on his way back home. Nice of him to let me sleep til my alarm went off at 7am eh? LOL

Tabitha said...

Genn said...

I hope you feel more like yourself soon!

Your smoothie looks so good! Why didn't I think of adding greek yogurt to mine?! I make them almost the same way except with protein powder, and no greek yogurt. Next time I'll try your way!

Hey, I missed this post! Sorry you are feeling puny! Hope that blah's pass soon! I have been in Mental Paws for 10 years now. Ooo...almost 11. I had a total hyster at 40, which threw me right in. FUN times!!!
Hey, the smoothie looks so yummy, but wanted to let you know...there is a worm in your fruit bowl!!!!
