Car Smell: An Update

In an effort to eliminate the gasoline odor in my car (going on three weeks now; I think I am immune to it which is even scarier), I read white vinegar helps. One bottle of vinegar later, I bet you can guess what my car smells like now. Not sure which is worse, honestly. Next up: coffee beans. STAT.

Single White Female

As I mentioned, my mom is currently living with me. Although it's going well, there are certain things she does that drive me bananas. And when I write them out, I look like I'm insane.

  • Flips light switches so they are in the "on" position when the lights are off and vice versa
  • Keeps moving the sponge from it's "spot" on the left side of the sink to the right
  • Doesn't believe in leaving the front porch light on
  • Watering the yard for 45+ minutes
But really, 4 ain't so bad. (I'm sure there are plenty more; these were just top-of-mind.)

Went to my first polo match on Saturday out in the middle of nowhere (but hey - great excuse to wear a hat!). Five minutes in, my feet starting burning and I looked down and was covered in fire ants. Which bit no one else, mind you. 6 bites later, I can barely walk because they're between my toes and right where my shoes hit. So flip flops it is this week. Sorry, work peeps.

Easter fail

Went to church on Easter (along with thousands of others - my church even offered shuttles for parking). It was lovely, until leaving and I grabbed an Easter lily off the windowsill of the sanctuary. (We had purchased one in honor of my grandmother and everyone was taking them, so this in itself was not a sin.) What WAS a sin: the fact that the lily I grabbed was tangled with the one next to it, and the second one came tumbling down and almost hit the little old lady behind me. Dirt went everywhere and it was all super embarrassing. I got the hell out of there. (And yes, I realize I shouldn't use hell and church in the same story, but whatev.)

And Bingo was his name-o

We're playing Bingo at work today. For the first time in my life, I get to be a Bingo caller. I may or may not have practicing my best "I-18. N-3." Of course, with it being Good Friday I might be both caller and only player, but at least the prizes are decent. And if my calling skills are also decent, I will next start practicing my best auctioneer calls. Or perhaps square dance calling comes first? I don't want to hurt myself.

So I have been going to an acupuncturist. I think it's all hooey, but have heard it can actually be helpful so what the eff. The first day, she had me stick out my tongue and she told me just by looking at it that I was too acidic. I needed to eat more acidic foods to get my body more pH-balanced and alkaline. (Yes, it's confusing that eating a lemon can make you more alkaline, but whatever.) So I've been trying really hard, taking these barley pills, drinking green tea and eating even healthier than I already did - and still testing acidic. So I desperately went on Amazon and bought Alkalife drops that go in your water, and after only a week I'm in the right pH zone. Weird and who KNOWS what I'm putting in my body, but for some reason it makes me feel better that I actually accomplished something. Bring on the lemon squares.

Good morning, Charlie

Just re-watched Charlie's Angels last night - come on. That's good stuff right there. Plus, I now have the Destiny's Child song (Independent Women Part I) stuck in my head. And now you do too.

(Also good stuff? My finally figuring out how to add GIFs to the blog. #soold)
