auction houses and gas station pizza!

our day started at 6:30 am. i was the motivated one today as it was officially and finally auction day. we whisked the kids off to the burtch's place and got on the road. me and mrs. floyd, barri and little guy. it was quite an adventure.

i just simply love buying things that are so cool for so little money. somehow it justifies (in my head) actually spending money on myself... which i hate doing. first of all because its practical usually, and secondly if its not i probably got it for a great deal.

fortunately for me i found a replacement gift for the green bead necklace dealio that was so nearly mine. a "cameo"? yeah its a gaudy huge pendant with a face on it. but actually for costume jewelry its very low key and i quite like the look of it on her beautiful self.

so after a few hours of my crazy biding frenzy ( its just so exciting ) we headed back to town for a quick nap and recharge before heading out to the aldriges for the mush anticipated gas station pizza and trappist monk beer. well the monk stuff was not anticipated but definitely a welcome addition. today was overloaded with fun and friends. i wouldnt have it any other way. my little ones are knocked out in there just getting all rested up for their next big day in this ridiculously short life.

its movie time here at 11pm and the night is still young. what a day.

I never was, am always to be,
No one ever saw me, nor ever will
And yet I am the confidence of all
To live and breathe on this terrestrial ball

and the answer is? googling allowed


  1. I'm clueless, but then again, you probably already knew that. 8-P

  2. "I never was, and always to be,"...So it's always future
    "No one ever saw me, nor ever will"...Hmm, if it's always future then that works.
    Remainder says we expect it to be there. I'm going to guess "Tomorrow" but I'm probably wrong as I am terrible at these things.

  3. Nice necklace score! Yes, the green one would have been yours if the drawing was based on hilarious couples that I wish I was friends with in real life because they leave comments that make me laugh so hard my sides hurt by writing hilarious, fictional stories about Pigs- because yours was the BEST. I shoulda rigged it, but then Chris would never have forgiven me... She respects me for my integrity- just ask her.
