Talk About Getting Distracted

I set out yesterday, with a list in hand to run errands. First stop - buy gas !! Ouch !!!!!! That was a blow to the bank account ! After a several other stops, I knew what I had to do . Took a deep breath and pulled into the grocery store parking lot . I think I heard a "little moan" from my debit card when I pulled it out to pay. I can't decide if the little "squeaking" sound I keep hearing today is a battery going out in a smoke alarm, or my wallet, after exposing it to the high cost of food and gas.

Okee DoKee..........Let's move on to my productive day today. After having coffee and a fruit and cereal bar this morning, I decided to get off the computer and get some things done.
Vacuum downstairs - Check
Dust - Kinda sorta
Clean 1/2 bath - 1/2 of a check. We will get back to that. OK ?
Update pictures of Grands in frames while waiting for bathroom floor to dry - Now that is what got me distracted !!!!!! I never did get the Grands most current pictures in the frames, as I pulled out a container of pictures that I took at a wedding over three years ago with a one time use camera. I glanced thru them, remembering a beautiful wedding, luncheon, and evening reception afterwards. I remember taking this picture so well, as I was leaving the luncheon. It was a gorgeous day with blue skies, warm temps and this was the view as I walked out of the club house.

Click on picture to enlarge.
Ok...........Back to reality. I scanned the picture, so not real good, but in real life, it was a beautiful view.
Let me "splain" the rest of the day. I took the photo upstairs where the scanner is, and after scanning it, then decided to look at some other pictures I had on a CD and uploading them, then deleting some pictures I did not think I had further use for. Well.....You get the picture!
Hope you got more accomplished today than I did - I am so easily distracted these days !

I think you did more than I did, Glenda. My daughter is here visiting and I took her downtown to go shopping. I want to plant and work in the garden a bit but the weather was so nice so Rochelle and I just lounged and had tea on the deck....Christine

Well, you sure accomplished more around your house than I did. My mom is coming tomorrow and I should have cleaned...maybe she won't notice.
The price of gas here has me rethinking my little trips:(
Gorgeous landscape picture!!

You are too funny !
I think now that gas prices are so high, I will lose weight because
I will have to use my grocery money to buy gas ! I am hearing the pain...especially because
it cost me $70 to fill up my Suburban ! Grrrrrrrrrrr :o)

I did laundry, cleaned the bathroom and did some dishes. Not that much but I'm happy that I got that done!

Aren't the prices awful? I don't really pay a lot of attention to food prices. There are just 2 of us and I tend to buy what sounds good which means fruits, veggies and chicken...with a few other things thrown in. Last night I was at the store and was going to grab a jar of Hellman's Mayo (just a normal size) and it was over $6. What? I live in small town nowhere. I'm really seeing a difference at the check out...and gas? Ugh.

Distracted? Who me? Never. That is why I'm reading this at almost 11:00 p.m.!

Donna said...

I NEVER get distracted!!! LOL
I start one thing and another thing and nothing gets done! At least you got something accomplished!
The gas prices do me in!

I get easily distracted too Glenda!
I start a project, then go to another.
I think this time of year, when I am so anxious for spring tends to make me feel that way.
Pretty pic and view!

I once saw a T-shirt that said, "Some people say I have ADD. They just don't understand......oh look...there's a chicken! Ha!
Anyway, you sure got a lot done for being distracted. Kudos to you. : )
Happy weekend,
Mary Lou

I like the part where you say about dusting---kinda sorta.

I'm lucky if I get that far.

I hate dusting.

Don't do so well on the vacuum part either.

I'd rather clean that 1/2 bath.....

Oh, I flit from one thing to the next, these days! LOL I spent the day looking things up so I could book our trip to the furniture market next month. I was in the midst of choosing seats when the husband called and said we should go on different days! wow- he caught me just in time. So I researched again & bought our tickets. Then I booked a car, changed the dates for the hotel, and spent the rest of the afternoon just vegging! whew- what a day. LOL
Tomorrow, I clean the upstairs!
