There are still kind people in this world!

There are some truly kind people in the world still. You know the kind of people that stop what they are doing to help a stranger.

And then when you thank them they say glad to help sweetheart. Have a great day!

I was at home depot trying to match a paint sample the employees weren’t being helpful. Just kept saying we need a sample big enough to get in this machine!

After the third time she said that, this man stopped his cart turned around and said do you have a fan book of colors?! Girl says yes. He says good! Let me see it.

He walks over to me and says let’s take a look. He tells me he has a pretty good eye. So we look.. he finds the perfect match. I thank him for taking time out of his busy day to help me. To which he replies glad to help sweetheart. Have a great day!

I turn back to less than helpful employee which is now a manager instead. And I say thank God for that man since I didn’t have the right size sample!! She says oh he’s a contractor. He’s here every morning. He doesn’t usually talk to anyone.

Well he did talk to me. And I’m forever greatful.

Don’t eat at RODRIGOS

image

They discriminate against people with Life threatening food allergies.

We have been eating there for 15 years. Waaaay back to when they were called Don Jose. And my children were 2 and 4 years old. And have ALWAYS brought in food for kids.

Well tonight we were asked to leave. Oh I did after I gave them a ear full. And my husband vented.

I will NEVER eat there again.

I can’t say what I want to. Because I’m a better person than that. But I will give you a clean version. SCREW YOU RODRIGOS!!

Oh!! And everyone I know will soon know you discriminate against people with special needs/ food allergy children!!

Ok breathe… The children are fed. Now to figure out what my hubby and I will eat.

Summer fun on the weekend

We had a great and slightly weird weekend.

It started with going to the Aquarium of the Pacific. The boys and I have been there a few times. My hubby had never been.

We had an awesome time there. We then went home and made reservations to stay in a cabin at a camp ground. This is where it got weird.

We arrived Sunday after looking at some open houses in that area. My camera kept screwing up. Wouldn’t video tape a certain home. Hubbys camera battery died in that home even though it was fully charged when we left our house 2 hours before.

Both videos I tried to take have weird clicking and then shut off. I tried to tape whole house. I never shut off video. Camera kept doing it.

We had a great lunch at Benny’s

image

While in city we also looked at the old mill. People claim its haunted by a 16-18 Year old girl. All looked good to me. Its an abandoned building.

Its old town section is adorable.

Well then off to camp ground and a scared to death pup as soon as we entered the cabin.

image

Pup wouldn’t let my son set her down. She was shaking and shivering violently. As soon as hubby got there I told him something on here she’s scared of. He turned place upside down.
We found rodent droppings. We got in car and drove home! Thank God my pup has a good nose.

So our mini vacation went wacko. But we’re not going to die from some rodent virus. And for that I’m greatful. We set out for an adventure. We got one!

Maybe it was the super moon that created the weirdness.

Monday found us at ShoreLine Village, The Korean friendship bell and a picnic lunch.

It was a wacky weekend. But it was fun!

Bandaid please!

So I left school today after work with woodchips  stuck in the bottom of my shoes not just one shoe, both shoes. And it went all the way through the shoe pokeing on my foot. So when I came home I got out pliers and a screwdriver.. clearly not thinking straight because what did I need a screwdriver for? Anyways I took the pliers and the screwdriver and was prying on my bottom of my shoe trying to take out the wood chips. I quickly found out pliers were not going to help so I then took the screwdriver and attempted to pry a woodchip out of  the bottom of my shoe thinking that if I could get it out just a little bit I could grab it with the pliers.  Well I’m pretty sure you know where the story ends, it ends with a screwdriver slipping and stabbing my other hand…

Beware.. My husband is on cook duty for dinner

And as usual its quite a ride! He was to make turkey meatloaf. He took out the milk and said matter of factly, its expired. I say ok check for another gallon.

Then I see him smelling and measuring out the milk. What are you doing? I say. He says I’m going to use the milk! I say um no. We don’t use expired milk. We’ve tried that already. We all got ill.

So he huffs and puffs and goes to the store to get another gallon. Problem adverted…or so you’d think. No its just the beginning of this story.

Onto mixing the ingredients. He takes the ground turkey, adds the egg, milk, bread crumbs and puts it into a loaf pan. Then he places it in the oven. I go to look and see how he did to see the meatloaf mix package on the counter UNOPENED.

I pick up the package and say did you forget the mix?? He says omgosh! So ya.. then out of the oven the meatloaf comes so we can add the seasoning.

After its back in the oven. He says Thank God you noticed that. That meatloaf would have been nasty.

I say. Ya think?! LoL maybe we will eat sometime tonight.
