Two things, quickly:
One, you guys are awesome! My 600 blog post party is HUGE! Thanks for coming, and thanks for inviting your friends. You still have until tomorrow at Noon Central Time to join in if you want to win one of the gift certificates! Just go comment on this post!
One problem, though, now there are all of these new blogs I need to go check out. When am I supposed to do that??? LOL
Two, did you know that it is Ragweed season here in Iowa? You wouldn’t know it by me! I am so so so excited this year — I’ve been using Flonase (Or is it Nasocort?) and Wow. Virtually no sneezing. Considering the fact that Ragweed is the one thing that I am the most allergic too — this is…unprecendented.
OK, three things — we went grocery shoppnig last night and I was worried that I’d miss the swimming finals last night. Shouldn’t have worried, and was so glad we got to watch. If you are the other teams in that pool, are you trying your darndest to beat Team USA, or are you secretly hopeful that Team USA wins so that Phelps can make history with 8 gold medals?
Did anyone else, though, wish that they had shown some other sport instead of the 15 minutes of men swimming back and forth and back and forth in the 1500M finals? Hello? That part is really boring! Just show us the finish!!
That really is all for now. We’re off to a family picnic.
LOL I found it boring as well…. I made coffee, returned, went potty, returned, washed up dishes, returned, Im telling ya!!!
I think they all secretly cheered for the Phelps victory:) I SO enjoyed watching dana torres win hers, but sure wished it had been gold. Just so she could retire with it on her resume! What an inspiration she is to 40 something women!
Happy Sunday, good luck with blogs, I cant keep up either.. my reading is hit n miss these days.
Mary Jo Jones says
I have been soooooo enjoying your blog…and today I learned that you are from Iowa too! What a wonderful state we live in…thanks for all that you share!
It is so nice of you to have us over, I love the color of your blog, Ocean Mist is so serene, and your quilts are magical.
what should I bring, I know !Egg rolls.
Congratulations on your 600 post
That coverage of the swimming was very boring, but so was the 2 hours of watching the women’s marathon. I wish they would show some of the other sports that are going on. Good luck with all those now blogs to read.
Sharon Dixon says
I was thinking the same thing as Carie about the marathon….cut to something else, PLEASE! Oh well, that’s what the remote is for, I guess.
Suzanne, when I started using Flonase, I was able to get off of allergy shots. And I’m glad you mentioned it because I usually start using it around the end of August so I’m prepared when ragweed season starts at the end of September. So thanks for the reminder.
