FF: Unfortunate Discomforts

It has been an interesting week here in the Flag household.  Why don't I share a few little peeks into it with you?

~I took my daughter to the mall to meet her "friend" who makes my daughter involuntarily smile and blush simultaneously. I also dropped my son off with her.  It seemed like a smart mom thing to do, and he was happy to come home and report everything he saw.

~My friend took a TERRIBLE picture of me.  Terrible.  And then she sent it to me via a cd.  Just so you know, I would not do that to you.

~I have this miserable sun/age spot on my face.  The dermo says she can remove it for $$$$.  Instead she sold me a cream for $$$ which isn't doing much to help.  Then, last Sunday, a friend asked me in a whisper if it was a bruise and did Checkered hit me.  She was serious.  NO!  He did not hit me.

~Another friend noted that I was reading Laura Ingalls Wilder's books (motivated by my night on the prairie, no doubt) and she went and borrowed a copy of Jennifer Weiner's newest book so I would have something "good" to read.  As much as I love Jennifer Weiner's writing, I think I enjoyed the Wilder books just as much.

~Not one.  Not two. But three mosquito bites on my backside this week.  How?!

~And finally.  Don't ever trust me if I say, "I love limes.  Go ahead and take a big taste of one."

Now I need to head out and do some blog hopping.  Why don't you ride with me?

Your friend was a brave one to ask if your bruise was a domestic issue. That's a tough one to ask. I don't know if I could ask. Blessings be that it wasn't that at all.

I do hope that you get the mark to go away without too much $$$ involved.

Laura Ingalls Wilder :) I loved those books. I wonder if I could get them on my Kindle? Thanks for the suggestion!

Younger siblings make for great informants. I know this.

I think we all think pictures of us are bad. We are our own worst critics.

Age spots give you character. It defines you, and gives you a uniqueness that others don't have. Smile.

I like a lime in a drink. Only in the drink.

I have some sun damage too. Do you think the derm would give us a group discount?

Just last week I was thinking about plastic surgery (since I'm living in the land o'plastic!) and seriously if I was a bazillionaire, I would totally have some work done. Sun damage - gone. Boobs - reduced and lifted. Cellulite - sucked out.

I would also have a lazy river around my property. And a huge aquarium stocked with jellyfish - they are just so beautiful and peaceful to watch. And....

I cannot believe a friend who presumably knows you well if she is able to ask such a question to begin with, would think that Checkered gave you a bruise on your face. I hope you find a solution that does not cost $$$$ for it. Oh your poor son being the chaperone - I hope he was rewarded :-)

You are a hoot...
Siblings make the best P.I's in town.
I had the brown patches removed a few years ago, my derm charged me $100.00. I did look a bit beat up for a few days though...

Maybe you got the mosquito bites sleeping in the nude? hahaha

Fun, fun post. I wonder if they tried to pay off the little brother? oops, just kidding. :-)

so what did you say the explanation was for those mosquito bites you-know-where??? ;-)

Fun, fun post.

I think it's so funny that your son was willing to be a spy. From the sounds of it he enjoyed every minute of it.

I love the lime picture!
