Six On Sunday, Version 20

1. Gum.  I love gum. I love gum the way smokers love cigarettes.  I was chewing AT LEAST a pack and half a day… which is a lot of gum. I had a Come To Jesus with myself, and I am proud to say I quit gum cold turkey on Wednesday. At 4PM.   I have been gum free for one hundred hours now. (Not that I am counting.) Seriously, while this might sound silly, it is a really big deal to me and I am very proud of myself.


Irons. Loyal readers will remember that last week I tried hot rollers. This week,  thought I would try the ol curling iron. I have not used a curling iron since the early 2000s when I would curl the ends of my hair under (this was also when I thought I was blonde). I am more gifted with the curling iron than the rollers, but there is still a steep learning curve. Also, does anyone know of a good hairspray that won’t make my hair a sticky, hard, nasty mess? Is there such a thing?

It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood…

3. Desperate Housewives. I might be 8 years late to the party, but here I am! It’s football season, so I have a lot of time to watch whatever shows I want to watch (because Thomas is watching football). I watched DH in 2004 when it first came on TV, and lost interest, or got busy, or forgot about it… I don’t really remember. Thanks to Netflix, I can watch it whenever I want to!

Old School (this is the season I am currently watching)

4. Keeping Up with the Kardashins. I know. In the history of stupid TV, this show and its manufactured drama would win.  Thanks to football season and Netflix, I can lower my IQ and watch this train wreck anytime I want to!


5. Grocery Shopping. Is such a pain in the you know what. Every Saturday, Emma and I head off to Trader Joe’s, Walmart, and Publix.  Three separate stores. That’s six times in and out of the car seat, three different carts, three different check out lanes filled with candy. After we have finished all the shopping, I get the prize of putting it all away. Yay! All in all, it is a marathon two plus hours.  Not super fun on a Saturday, but way more fun than underwear shopping. (FYI, Victoria’s Secret is that she is a sadist.)

6. Apple Picking. We haven’t been yet this year. Last year, we waited until the end of October, and by the time we got to the orchards no apples were left. Instead of picking apples off the trees, we picked  them out of bins in the gift shop. It wasn’t really the same.  Also, I would like to make an apple pie from scratch…







  1. I never liked gum. Sure, I’d have some occasionally but it was usually just for the flavor. I’d suck all the flavor out and then spit out the gum lol

    The Kardashians! I love them. So much drama and I love every second of it.

    And that pie? Wow, I never wanted pie so badly before. Looks so yummy :)

  2. I could never get into gum. I chew it for a couple of minutes and then spit it out. And I go through a pack in, like, five minutes. But I probably buy a pack of gum once every two or three years, if that. But I could never quit tea so I understand the addiction part…ha! Congrats on 100 gum-free hours!

    Also, I’ve been thinking of getting a curling iron lately. I can’t do anything other than flat iron my hair but a curling iron looks kind of similar, maybe?

    • If I ever get any good at the curling iron, I will pass along tips. Thanks for the encouragement on the gum. It sounds like a no brainer, but has been difficult

  3. I got that addicted to gum when I was pregnant but luckily the addiction went away as soon as I had the baby.

    LOL @ Victoria’s secret, I totally agree!

  5. I’ve been a gum chewer in the past. I do now on occasion–but can only chew half a stick at a time–a whole stick feels like bubble gum and I end up blowing bubbles, not so professional.
    I hate grocery shopping. Mostly because I hate spending the money, but also because it’s such a chore and I have to go every week. And I certainly can’t send the hubs to do it–we’d have only junk food or expensive food I wouldn’t know what to do with.

  6. I’ve discovered that a straightening iron actually curls my hair and keeps it much better than a curling iron or rollers. I usually don’t even have to spray it, and my hair is very stubbornly straight.
    Ugh, 3 separate stores? You’re a trooper. I usually can just handle one store, and barely that!
