stormy--'s Diaryland Diary


The Day I talk way too much about M&Ms

It's about to storm. Finally. I never thought I'd be wishing for a storm, but after two days of intense humidity somethings gotta give.

I was just out there using my spreader to spread anti-bug granules everywhere. I was out there for about 45 minutes or so. When I came in I had rivers of sweat dripping down my face, my back, and even between my boobs. I got undressed as I made my way through my kitchen and immediately hit my shower. And now it is so dark outside that it seems like it's the middle of the night. I just hope my power doesn't go out with these strong thunderstorms.

Tomorrow's my birthday. Yep. Another year older. I'm not one of those people who are ultra sensitive about their age. The way I figure it no matter how much I like or dislike the age that I am I'm still going to be it. No amount of whining or complaining is going to change it.

But still.... Sometimes I get a little down thinking about all of the plans I had and how a lot of them haven't come to fruition yet. That's the part about aging that makes me really sad. I just hope that I have enough time left in my life to do all the things I've always wanted to do.

No big plans for the big day. Normally my sister makes it a point to visit me for a few days over my birthday. It would be three to four days of nonstop fun and little if any sleep. The stories I could tell.... One time my sister, a friend, and I got all gussied up and went out to celebrate. 36 hours later we were three states away having breakfast at an IHOP with four members of a band we went to see. We actually had to stop at a Target to buy toothbrushes, deodorant, and changes of clothes. That was several, several years ago. Hard to believe I was ever that young and stupid.

With this virus out there, my sister won't be coming up and there'll be no going out for me. Not that we'd do anything like we did all of those years ago. My idea of a good time nowadays is ordering a pizza and binge watching something on Netflix.

But I think I will go out tomorrow afternoon. I'm going to take myself out to lunch (car side pickup) and then I'm going to a grocery store for a cupcake. I just want a simple cupcake that I can bring home and decorate with some peanut M&Ms.

Oooo.... I think I forgot to mention that the last time I was at the store I picked up a bag of brownie fudge M&Ms. Supposedly they're new and they were on sale. Didn't take much to persuade me to put a bag in my buggy. Actually, it was kind of hard to talk myself out of putting 2 bags in my buggy. But I never had them before and the new flavors of M&Ms have just been kind of ... meh. For instance, caramel M&Ms. For some reason they're just all wrong to me. Nothing compares to my favorite peanut ones. I also like, but not as much, the peanut butter ones. And, if there's nothing else, the original ones are classic. Plus they go great on ice cream.

Haven't tried the brownie fudge M&Ms yet but I'll be sure to keep you updated.
