Random Thoughts From Kellie's Brain

~I cleaned out my freezer today. I threw out Christmas '07 cookies, a bag of mini shrimps (that I don't remember buying, but had an expiration date of April 08) and one lonely, freezer burned, mini bagel...


~The moving company we are using sent over a surveyor this week to estimate our household goods...

~If you think you are a good house keeper, then you should invite a random stranger into your home and let her look in all your cabinets, closets, and drawers where you usually hide things before company comes over.

Then you won't feel quite as smug about your housekeeping skills.

~When your husband nudges you while blogging and says "Honey, did you know that there aren't any graham crackers to dip into milk (one of his favorite after running snacks)", the correct answer would not be, "Well, there is the box of organic Oreo-esqe cookies, that I bought a month ago". 

He will look at you with every bit of seriousness, and say, "That's not funny."

~Man!, I shouldn't have thrown out those Christmas cookies...

~Those organic cookies are terrible.

~I eat graham crackers only when I am desperate for something sweet. As a last resort.

~I do enjoy Annie's Graham Bunnies though.

~My cupboard (and fridge) is almost bare. There is no chicken, nor beef. We are out of cheese, tortillas and vegetables. There is one piece of salmon, and since we ate omelets for dinner tonight, we are down to 3 eggs.

~We are completely out of dog food.

~ I never eat dog food as a last resort. 

~Just in case your wondering...

~You know what has forced my hand to get to the store?

~I have only 3 coffee filters left....

~Why is it when you unplug your computer for three measly hours, you think of 5897 things to write about...but when you are sitting in front of the screen and have a few minutes to blog, you can think of NOTHING...

~Honestly, I'm in the middle of a really hard situation right now that has been weighing heavily on my mind for several days. Which is why I am probably having a tough time writing...

~I tend do that when I am thinking things through...

~I can't think and write at the same time.

~ Well, I can. 

~But things always seem to work out for the better when I think before I act.

~Tomorrow?

~I act...

~That will be hard too.

~But then maybe...just maybe, I'll be able to post something a little more organized!

~But then again, maybe not!

;)

La Vida Dulce!

Well, you desribed MY pantry and fridge to a tee before my drama-filled shopping trip yesterday.

I'm sorry you're going through some heavy stuff. I will pray.

I love random thoughts...SO, glad the dog food will remain untouched as a last resort (that made me laugh)....and if coffee filters is what it takes to get you to the store...so be it :) I am thinking of you as you pray through this situation on your heart...I hope you have a great Wednesday!

Girl! Do you really believe those sell-by dates? They are just a plot to make us throw food away too early! (: Hey at least it wasn't an '07 date!

I am off to Costco today because I have 1 egg in the house and a freezer/pantry full of half-of-a-recipe ingredients. IRG!!! Speaking of house keeper skills...after all these years, why am I not better at this menu planning thing?!?! I am writing a list RIGHT NOW!!!!!!

Saying a prayer for your "situation", dear friend.

Darcie said...

Well, at least you're doing well in the whole "eating down" thing. :)

Yay for food that is almost gone when you are getting ready to move! Yay for not resorting to dog food! And Yay for humility that comes with having others sort through all of your closets and drawers - eek!

On the other hand, whatever it is that is weighing heavily on your heart - boo! - but I know. I often start posts about these things then just leave them on my screen for days...like right now, writing about my grandma's funeral...

Nicole said...

Ah moving...so much fun. We really ARE going to do that meet up before you leave. When is the departure date again?

Janel@Dandelion Dayz said...

Oh, Kellie. I am sorry you are going through anything that is a bummer right now. I know how it can be hard to write and think. I can't do both either! I love your random thoughts though.

Oh, I would hate to clean out my freezer right now. ugh. Or try to sell my house. ugh ugh.

Praying for lots of peace for you girl.

I love "random thoughts" blogs. I also agree with you on the bunny grahams, they are pretty tasty.
I started drinking coffee again, I knew that I could'nt stop for very long.

Lindsay said...

LOL I am cracking up about the not eating dog food. When I was a kid and my mom went away for work my dad would say we were going to eat dog food the whole time! I hope you get some coffee filters!

Praying for your day and the tough stuff.

did you really post at 2am? or was that an auto-eblogger post? Cuz even that is early for you...

praying for your situation... and graham crackers with icing from a can -- or marshmallow fluff, or peanut butter, or marscapone cheese... yum. But have you tried Trader Joe's Graham Crackers? You find them on the shelves above the open freezer items... quick, get them now before you move across the country...

and oh yeah -- many blogging thoughts throughout the day but when I sit down to write it seems I'm all about whining lately.

Hang in there -- and perhaps an italian ice (cappuccino flavored) is in our future...?

I enjoyed reading your thoughts because I can relate to many of them. The pantry - I end up going to the store everyday because I keep missing things. I guess a list would help.

I am laughing about you wishing for those old Christmas cookies!

Chel said...

What a great, funny post! If you haven't already, come over to my blog & leave me a question in the comments. I'm gathering questions - anything you might want to know about me. :)

Michelle@Life with Three said...

I only eat graham crackers as a last resort, too! I cracked up when I read that! And, you are absolutely right about having 15,000 things to write about when you're not sitting down at the computer, but the moment you sit down -- complete blank. I can' stand that!

I hope you'll be able to sort things out -- I'm sending prayers your way.

Jackie @ Our Moments Our Memories said...

Right now, it is 10:22 p.m. and I am starving. I can't eat this late at night...but even the organic Oreo cookies sound good to me. :)

Hope you get some resolve soon with the issues you are dealing with. Praying for you!
