Thursday Thirteen--Stuff I Learned This Week

Since our Rv, which we live in, has been in the shop for a week, we have been visiting our kids. These are things I have learned this week.
1. It always takes longer to get where you are going than you think it will.
2. Every time we stop, I *need* a coke.
3. Every time I get a coke, I Need to stop again.
4. The more times we stop, the more cokes I drink.
5. The more cokes I drink, the more often we have to stop. (anybody else seeing a pattern here?)
6. Leaving one Pomeranian alone with five cats is probably not a good idea.
7. The cats can get into places where the Pom can not go, but the Pom can't find a place that the cats can't go.
8. Kids love helping to strip a chicken carcass, because it is greasy and messy.
9. There is an amazing amount of meat left on the carcass even after you think it is stripped.
10. All little girls raised in the South need to know that *white* meat chicken salad is the only acceptable version to serve to company, although leftover *dark* meat is perfectly acceptable to serve to one's husband for lunch.
11. My daughter Jeana does not know how to pronouce "victuals" and neither does my husband.
12. Two of my grandchildren prefer to watch movies at maximum volume; I'm talking loud enough to rattle the windows.
13. My dil Jamie is a great cook, and if I stay here much longer, I won't be able to fit into any of my clothes.

Your drinking coke and its consequences reminded me of a cute post I read earlier today. If you have a moment visit this blog:
It was really funny!

Correction--I didn't know how to pronounce victuals. Now I know, I just haven't accepted it yet.

I'm crazy about coca-cola, too...and I have the same stop-drink-stop propensity as well!

The victuals thing just cracks me up. I'm working on accepting it, too. :)

Hey, Jan. Thanks for visiting (and thanks, Sue, for pointing you in the right direction) and for your nice comments. I agree with the vicious circle you are in re: Coke and driving. Happens to me all the time.

I loved all the stuff you learned this week. Please stop by my blog when you can and I plan to go back and read your posts. I think it's interesting that you and hubby are living in your RV. This is something my husband wants to do but I'm too much of a stick-in-the-mud.
