The week update

Not much to report this week.  Just a few things.

Ringing the Bells
This past Wednesday, my co-worker and I did our annual 2 hours of ringing the bells.  For those who don't know, this is for the Salvation Army.  We stood outside one of the mall's entrances for 2 hours and ring bells in the hopes that someone will donate some money.  I have to say, people were quite generous this year!  I think that this was one of our best years!!!

Talked to someone this week who I hadn't spoken to in months. Falling out, lack of communication, growing apart, misunderstandings, dishonesty - that pretty much covers what happened.  Regardless, I'm always the type that I want to talk things through.  I want to know the truth. Even if it is ugly.  I can honestly say that in this situation it didn't help as much as I thought it would. It wasn't hurtful in anyway, just didn't end up being what I thought it would.  I'm not sure what I thought that ending would be. But I think now, I can move forward.  A little more wiser, a little more wary.

Fresh Market
Saturday was rainy and ugly which of course was not conducive to me having to run errands. But I did!  One of my stops was to the grocery store, Fresh Market. Does anyone have one of these stores?  I ADORE this place.  I rarely go because I ended up buying a bunch of stuff I don't need!!!  I wanted to make myself a nice dinner for Saturday evening (I've been craving some red meat!), so I went to buy a nice steak.  I ended up with a portobello mushroom and mozzeralla cheese beef pinwheel, a double stuff potato, and a greek artichoke heart salad.  Yummy!!!  But that wasn't all.  I bought cheese, hummus, nuts, cranberries (fresh!), cheddar cheese biscuits, dipping pretzels, pita chips, and olives.  I think that is it! LOL  This place is just awesome.  I love their prepared foods.

I will have to honestly say that I have never been as upset and sickened by a football game as I was by LSU's performance on Saturday night against Ole Miss. We have a quarterback who knows only how to get himself sacked and a coaching staff (making really good money) who do not know how to call a time out. They might as well have just handed the football to Ole Miss with a red ribbon tied around it and say "Here you go. You win."  Today, Sunday, LSU is a complete joke to the rest of the football community because they spiked the ball with one second left instead of kicking a field goal which could have won the game for us.

Thankfully, the Saints had a great game on Sunday and are now 10-0!  First time in franchise history!  Awesome!!!  It is so much fun to watch them!

My Pretty Car
I am so sad!  On Sunday morning, as I was going through the parking lot, a man in a black Honda pulled out of a parking spot and right into the front driver side above the tire of my car.  My pretty new car!  I've only had her 6 months!!!  Now she has a big ugly dent in her.  I'm ok other being so very angry!  I saw him coming right into me but there was no where for me to go and I didn't have time to hit my horn. The other car?  A scratch.  One little scratch!  I can't even describe the sound of the car as it scrunched under from the impact of his car.  Made me sick to my stomach!

That was my week.  Definitely lots of downs but I haven't let it get me down!!!!  That's the important thing!!!! I have ahead for me a VERY short work week.  I only work Monday. Yay!!!  Then shopping, cleaning, and decorating is on the agenda!!!  Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!
