I Love Being a Rebel...

Hubby and I had lunch at McAllister's sandwich place today...I ordered a BLT without the L...Hubby ordered a panini. Both were really good but WAY too much! SO, I ate half of mine and wrapped up the other half for Hubby to have for his supper...WHAT!!Hahaa...Yes I Did To! I re-toasted it under the broiler, after slathering both sides in butter, and it came out better than straight from the store. Long story short Hubby wanted to know what I was having...?? "Well, I believe I'm having an Ice Cream supper tonight..." Should'a seen his face!!Hahaaa...And I did! Vanilla ice cream with Big Red poured over it...Shameful I know BUT I Really felt the "Rebel" rising up in me! Ain't I something?LOL....Night all!

Silly Stuff on a Thursday!

Cleaning Poem

I asked the Lord to tell me
Why my house is such a mess
He asked if I'd been 'computering',
And I had to answer 'yes.'
He told me to get off my fanny
And tidy up the house.
And so I started cleaning up...
The smudges off my mouse.
I wiped and shined the topside.
That really did the trick...
I was just admiring my work....
I didn't mean to 'click.'
But click, I did, and oops, I found,
A real absorbing site.
That I got SO way into it....I was into it all night.
Nothing's changed except my mouse
It's very, very shiny.
I guess my house will stay a mess...
While I sit here on my hiney....

Hope you're all have a more productive day than I am!!LOL...
