Discoveries

As the mercury approached 80 degrees this afternoon I rejoiced to the high Heavens made several new discoveries:

Bright White Feet + Flip Flops = Seared Corneas

Year 42 has not been kind to my thighs.

All of the veins in my legs seem to be clamoring for the surface.

Capri Pants are the only thing I will be wearing this summer my friend.

I like lasagna and chocolate. Just not together.

Wine is good. This is not a new discovery, but it's worth repeating.

My daughter IS capable of cleaning the bathroom. Well.

The flooring we picked out for the new family room is amazing!

My dog reeks smells worse in the summer than in the winter.

I am not nearly as hateful MUCH kinder to my family when the weather is pleasant.

What new discoveries have you made this weekend?

Mental P Mama said...

Rain+driveway+worms=barf. Let's not talk of our moods. K?

I re-discovered that my ambition returns with the sun! I must be one of those "winter hibernation syndrome" people! What ever the case, spring is my long lost friend!

A child's laugh is my most favorite sound in the world.

Year 41 has not been kind to my belly.

Monsters vs. Aliens sucked.

Movie popcorn and coke is the greatest. Thus the belly.....

No new discoveries but acceptance that I will not be the winner of the Southbeach Diet but I love my pleasingly plump self anyway! And I love you too BHE! (got any too big for you capris?)

Let's drink another beer!

Grandma J said...

Nothing new, just the same bland weekend.

I decided years ago I would no longer sacrifice fun and bathing suits just because my body wasn't perfect....because no one cared and I was the one missing out on the fun.

Busy Bee Suz said...

I love your discoveries as well....I have two words for the veiny legs: SELF TANNER. I swear by it!!!

Midlife, menopause, mistakes and random stuff... said...

Girl I like lasagne and chocolates as well.
We ain't even gonna go into the "thigh issues" that I've acquired......
And a bottle of wine? I'll have two thanks :)

Very funny. I cant wait to get back to FL where the sun is out and the weather is pleasent! My vacation to MN (if you can call it that..) has me yearning for my new home. :) BUT i'm tanning before I wear shorts. My legs are ghostly! I think capris are going to be my friend for a while too :)

Amy said...

I have discovered that you have some crazed sense of humor! Your seared corneas had me snorting over here! :)

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

Capri pants are the new shorts. And flip flops evidently are a hazard because I experienced the exact same blinding sensation today when I attempted to wear mine outside.

Great posts! Sometimes I feel like my legs look like a road map and all I will be wearing is capris as well.
I discovered that I am not a very good party planner or host while in full blown PMS! LOL!

Suz Broughton said...

I discovered that spring is really, truly on its way. I can't wait.

PS once you go "all capris" you never go back...

SSG discovered she has something in common with Gwynnie Paltrow, come over and check it out!

SSG also learned that her spring cleaning addiction may not be a cleaning addiction at all and that it is FADING away much to her garage's dismay.

Karen Deborah said...

did you really have to bring up white legs, veins and all of that? Actually I discovered that I had been "missing" the back of my leg shaving and found these 3 or 4 very long hairs on the back of my knee that I first thought were threads or something....needless to say I remedied that horror the next morning.

My Metabolic Rate is Stuck said...

The longer I sit and Blog, the wider my butt has grown!
NO KIDDING! :(

Caution Flag said...

I discovered that it is snowing and my furnace is dead.

Keetha said...

I re-discover, like I do each year, that I actually like spring. It's the sweltering miserable July through September that I don't care for.

BUT this year I've decided to look forward to the good stuff: Easter egg hunts and Mother's Day Sunday dinner and Fourth of July with the family and homemade peach ice cream and suppers of corn bread and sauted squash and fried okra.

And crap. Now I'm hungry.

Capris have been my BFF for eons and I dont care if my legs are whiter than an Irish lass's .. I prefer pale to skin cancer ..

I've discovered that I feel an emotion kindred to hate for people with sunny weather.

I haven't seen the sun in so long that I'm beginning to hallucinate. I thought that I saw the "northern lights" shining over a glacier yesterday. It SNOWED here!!!! Where is my boogerwoods spring?????
