Amazing Memories

I love Monday Listicles and this week's topic is from Ducky's Great Brain. Trying to recall ten memories from this week was much more difficult than I thought.

1. Last night when I popped open a Coors Light and StinkBug said, "Wow Mommy, you and Daddy haven't drank BEER in a LONG TIME!"




2. On Wednesday, feeling more comfortable at a halfway house for women recently released from prison than at the classroom Halloween party where I was supposedly Room Parent.

3. Spending Sunday afternoon at the park with friends while the kids played kickball and the grown-ups enjoyed uninterrupted conversations.

4. Friday when I found the perfect mug for my BFF




5. Last week when a WONDERFUL health department employee returned my calender which had been missing for nearly SIX WEEKS!

6. When I had a root canal on Tuesday, came home and took 800 mg of Ibuprofen and slept the day away. One of the best naps of my life!

7. On Halloween when StinkBug, Peanut and I set off as many Christmas musical dogs, frogs, santas, penguins, monkeys and reindeer as we could in the aisle at Kmart and were given the stink eye by a young associate.

8. Wine and laughter on a Friday night.

9. When we were sitting around talking about weird stuff we had in our cars and I won because I said "I have a trombone, a copy machine, a never used kitty litter scoop and a playdough tool box."

10. When I was trying to write my Monday Listicles of amazing recent memories and I couldn't even recall what I'd made for dinner a few hours earlier.


I am hooking up with my rowmies and my columnies over at Yeah Write in hopes that group motivation will propel us through NaBloPoMo.

Visiting from Listicles...haha, I am not even worthy to compete in your "weird stuff in the car" contest :)

Stacie @ Snaps and Bits said...

Wine and laughter are the best! Love the mug ;)

Cocalores said...

Agree with Stacie! I just cannot for the life of me figure out how a root canal has made it into the top ten memories! (Must have been a hard week - ha ha!)

Bee said...

Love, love, LOVE #7!!! That totally sounds like something I'd do. My husband often says he can't take me anywhere.

Diane said...

I had two root canals awhile back and each time the dentist prescribed Halcion (basically a sleeping pill) because I'm a Nervous Nellie. I pretty much passed out and slept the entire rest of the day away both times.

You should really turn number 9 into a post because I'd love to know why you have that stuff in your car! Lol.

Love the sock monkey mug. :)

I always let the kids stop in the aisles to push the buttons of every single annoying musical contraption for every single holiday. Just because I won't ever buy one doesn't mean I can't annoy the people at the store. Maybe one day they'll stop stocking them and we won't ever have to see or hear them again.

Glad you got to have some wine after the root canal. Wine and friends make everything better.

I always love your lists! I have to schedule a root canal. Boo!
Good luck with NaBloPoMo!

Your the second columnite I've read today using the Listicle. Plus, one of my yeah write rowmies used this today. I've never heard of it before. This is the beauty of NaBloPoMo: learning new things from other bloggers. Thanks for sharing!

cynk said...

Ugh: nice grammar on my comment. That was supposed to be "You're."
*hangs head in grammar shame*

Haahaa, this list was hilarious! I thoroughly enjoyed it:) I am now totally inspired for NaBloPoMo.

Gina said...

Your 8, 9, and 10 are perfectly hilarious! I like you memories or in the case of 10, that your memory is like mine!

@dkotucker said...

Haaahaa...way to go Stinkbug! Loved number 1.

Great list...can especially relate to number 10 too.

Shannon Fisher said...

Thanks for visiting! My husband and kids have a few choice words to say about all the weird stuff in my car :)

Robbie K said...

It was impromptu which made it even better. I had been feeling a bit out of touch with ppl and it's just what I needed.

Robbie K said...

It was my FIRST root canal so it will always hold a special place in my heart :)

Robbie K said...

It was incredibly fun-especially since there were many people running in for last minute costumes and candy.

Robbie K said...

Thanks for the idea-I will DEFINITELY turn #9 into a post :)

I don't think my new dentist is as generous with the meds as my old one was.

Robbie K said...

I admit I was doing it to be a bit obnoxious b/c it irritates me very much that Halloween isn't even over and they are marketing Christmas.

Robbie K said...

Thanks on all accounts :)

My root canal wasn't as bad as I thought it would be but they had taken care of the infection and taken out nerves the previous time.

Robbie K said...

You should totally do #mondaylisticles. One of my favorite things about link-ups is finding new people and finding new link ups.

Robbie K said...

Thanks I am to entertain :)

Robbie K said...

Thanks :)

What does it say about me that I had to go back and read my memories so I would know which ones you were referring to?

Robbie K said...

It was hysterical!

Robbie K said...

You SHOULD! The topic for next week is already posted so you can start writing NOW!

I am going to turn #9 into a blog post due to popular demand :)

Jessica B said...

Great, funny list! Also, thanks SO MUCH for the sock monkey mug link! You just helped me find the perfect present for my super hard to shop for niece - she's a sock monkeyaholic. Can't wait for the #9 post... :)

Sisterhood of the Sensible Moms said...

You must have some great parents in your class. Yikes.

I love that you clarified that the kitty litter scoop had never been used. Snort! Ellen

Robbie K said...

Thank you! I am a sockmonkey fanatic!!!! And I'll get cracking on #9 post!

Robbie K said...

It was quite awkward. I'm the new kid on the block.

The never used kitty litter scoop is from my crazy cat lady costume!

AudreyN said...

Funny list! I love that you won the random things in your car :) And a nap all day sounds wonderful!

Stasha said...

You are probably a state champion of the weird on the car stuff!! Awesome list, love that mug, she will be so happy!
