A couple random things about the past few days...



1. Well, our week long trip to Baltimore only lasted 9 hours! Boy did Jelly miss us. This is what he does to his blue blanket we keep on our bed if he is feeling emo...


He puts it in his mouth and then turns around in a circle until it is all coiled up. He kneads the blanket as he is doing all of this. 

This is what the blanket looked like when we got home:


Note: It was spread out FLAT when we left.

Don't you think it looks like a dolphin diving through the waves? Jelly creates ART, people!


2. My relationship with Paul has been taken to the next level. We were stuck in traffic foreeeeever on Tuesday and I had to pee so bad. As in, I was going to pee my pants unless I found a bathroom within the next five minutes. Unfortunately, there was no bathroom! So we pulled over in a neighborhood, Paul blocked the view, and I peed in a coffee cup in the car. I HAD NO OTHER CHOICE!!!!!!! Paul says he doesn't judge me. When ya gotta go, ya gotta go.


3. I had a cup of Autumn Squash soup from Panera the other day. Oh my gosh, it is so good. Heaven in a bowl! I like to dump the little bag of chips that come with it into the soup. Real healthy, I know.


4. Speaking of health foods, I have determined that small Blizzards from DQ are too big for me. Obviously, America has a skewed vision of what is a "small" because a small Blizzard is actually quite large! I need to start only eating half and then save the rest for the next day. Because if I eat the whole thing, I am past the point of satiation.

A small is huge!


5. On Tuesday morning, I hit the road at 4:15 am and ran five miles. It was pitch dark and there wasn't a single soul out. I didn't even see any cars. About a mile into my run, it started to drizzle ever so slightly. It was warm and peaceful. It sort of felt magical.

6. At work on Thursday, I came back from lunch to see a "surprise" laying on the floor behind my desk...


It looked very realistic. I mean, look at those two little nuggets beside the big turd. Also, I work at an elementary school, so it is not out of the realm of possibility to find puhp laying on the floor.

However, before I flipped out, called a custodian, and put my classroom on lock down, I remembered that I work with quite a lot of jokesters and immediately called out the culprit!

It was pretty funny though!
Have you ever had to find a creative way to pee in traffic?
Tell me something RANDOM!

  1. I can totally relate to having to use the bathroom. Just this past summer on the way to Steamboat I had to go so bad so we pulled off and barely ventured from the road so I could go in the trees while Rick blocked me from any cars going by. But you know what, I didn't even care if people saw me. Its a level of desperation that unless you have experienced it, you don't get it.

    OK, this is totally random but I hardly sweat and never have to wear deodorant. When I workout I do sweat so my body knows how to do it, but day to day, nothing and why put deodorant on if I don't need it?!?

    Sorry, Meg & readers if that is TMI :)

    Have a great weekend. We are heading to the mountains to camp.

    1. Have a great time camping!

      It is not TMI- you are lucky that you don't sweat much other than exercising. :)

  2. Hahahah the car thing has totally happened to me and Adam before! Luckily it was at night so he pulled off to the side of the highway and I did my thing hoping that no one's headlights caught me :)

    The towel thing is so crazy, that is art! I can see the dolphin! I bet it's sooooo cute to watch Jelly wind up the blanket while kneading it!

    1. Ah glad I am not alone with the whole peeing in the car thing! I knew it was bound to happen at some point. It was my own fault for drinking so much coffee.

      I knew you would love Jelly's art, and yes, it is ADORABLE watching him do it. We have caught him several times and he looks so embarrassed.

  3. I'm impressed that you could pee in the cup - I'm awful at that!!
    Random fact from me - I sleep in spurts so I read/sleep/read/sleep - it is rare for me to sleep all night long.

  4. I love cat art lol! I have been at the place of desperation in the car, I hate that feeling. I chuckled at Paul doesn't judge :) What the hell were you doing up at 4:15 a.m.?? That makes me tired just thinking about it lol I love the joke, laughter is good for the soul.

    1. Oh 4:15 is because we had to be in Baltimore by 7:30am! We were like 45 minutes late due to traffic... hence, the peeing incident of 2014. :)

  5. I am impressed your aim was that good where you can pee in a cup in a car!!! Nice! I hate that feeling though where you are seriously going to burst and have nowhere to go. I think your cat has major talent. I'm going to tell Pepe and make him jealous. :)

    1. Oh it was not fun at all but I think if you are ever put in the position where it's either pee on the seat of your car or pee in a cup, you will have INCREDIBLE aim!

  6. LOL....this blog post made me giggle several times! Matt asked me why you peed in the cup in the car and I immediately ran to the computer to see what he was talking about. Now I know! I was predicting you were at a doctor appointment and didn't want to use the doctor washroom....I was so wrong! lol.
