Really Random Thursday - Episode 164: The Betrayal

Any Seinfeld fans out there? Besides Stephanie ;-) If so, you may appreciate my little variation of one of my favorite episodes.



I had the pleasure of visiting the doctor. As my husband would say, "Not too goooood!!" I'm now in the market for a particular dietary supplement. I'll be burping up fish every day.  Not real happy about it.

I'm even unhappier about having to lose 20 pounds!

I just don't understand...what am I doing wrong????


 Whew!! The first day of school is finally over. All the kiddos safely on their way home.
 But no kids "bus left!" Nope, not on my watch. After a stressful first day of school, there is nothing better than partaking in my favorite beverage...a glass of wine cleverly disguised as a cup of coffee.

Oh, how I LOVE my half and half


It's going to be a LONG day. Regardless of the rain and construction, I REALLY need my large MickeyD's sweet tea to get me through the day.


My sister, Rene', was kind enough to share her recipe for black beans. I've been wanting to make some for quite awhile. Of course, here in south Georgia, we serve up a little bit of beans with ALOT of rice. Too bad I don't have any cornbread to sop up the pot liquor!!


My husband and I had to take a quick trip to the emergency room to check on his sister. Thankfully, she was doing well except for a case of dehydration. While there, I had another conversation with my dear MIL regarding a particular family sewing machine. Oh boy was my blood boiling, blood pressure through the roof, steam coming out of my ears was I a little perturbed. Long I love to tell, but trust me, you don't want to hear. Fortunately, I had this gem I picked up at Publix waiting for me at home.


It's not often I dig into my groceries while still in the parking lot. But SIX hours to get my laptop/docking station hooked up...REALLY???


How clever am I to take a picture of all these wires before summer break. Hooking up my computer should be a breeze!

What a hot mess!!!


I am so excited about this upcoming school year!!! I'll be in a new room, which I love!! I love the beginning of a new school year. So many possibilities, plans, goals. This is going to be a great year. I'm even going to decorate my room (haven't done that for years)! We are going on a Speech Safari! Fortunately, I have my granddaughter helping me during pre-planning.

And my goal for the year.....STRESS FREE!! Don't can happen ;-)

I'm linking up with Cindy's Really Random Thursday.

  1. Thank you for giving me a smile with my coffee and creamer this morning!!

  2. Love it! Hope you have a great school year - the classroom looks fun :)

  3. Yay, Michelle! This was very fun to read first thing this morning. Thanks SOOO much for linking up. (Except it makes me miss you a lot....)

    P.S. Life IS a Seinfeld episode!

  4. I LOVE your Seinfeld! I would be a super model, too!! Have a great school year. I used to be a teacher and still get that "new school year" feeling!

  5. love the Seinfeld reference... My hubby never watched that show and he just doesn't get half of my sayings and references as a result.

    Fish oil isn;t so bad, but you gotta get the right kind.

    I love the Really Random Thursday blogs. I know that your children will enjoy their safari adventure. Have a great school year.

  7. Sorry to say I don't get the Seinfeld references, but love your post! I can relate to the supermodel poster;-). Good luck following the doctor's orders!

  8. OMG. I'd be anorexic if stress burned calories. Haha! I love your Seinfeld approach. That's great. How clever. I really need to start back on my diet. I'm going the wrong way.
