Overdose?


Ok I told you guys that Gup and I went to the eye doctor on our anniversary right? Well I got some new glasses along with a new prescription. She gave me some eye drops for itchy eyes. With as many things as I am allergic to, my eyes tend to itch a lot. Well we fill the script the other day ,and I get to reading about it. It actually says you can overdose on the stuff. On friggen eye drops? How in the world would you overdose on an eyedrop? If you did ,what would it do ? Blind you ?I had to laugh at that .I am sure if there is someone out there that actually HAS overdosed on it, it would not be funny ..but man it is bizarre. It also says not to breast feed while taking them? Are you kidding me? I know women that drink while breast feeding and they are saying you can not put some drops in your eyes? Wow, I never thought about an eye drop making it to your blood stream . This goes down as one of those things that most certainly makes me go… HMMMMMMMMMM??????Has anyone ever heard of this before?

camping out at Wally World

As most of you know, I work at Wal-mart and have for several years( 12 to be exact ..lol).This makes for some pretty funny happenings at times,especially at holiday time.
Today happened to be one of those funny moments.Apparently the brand new game system,X-box 360 is making is debut at one minute past midnight tonight.We got 4 of the good ones with the hard drive and 10 of the not so great ones ( I have no idea the specifics of each ..lol ).At 11:00am, four men( either late teens or early twenties) showed up ,two of them toting folding chairs,sack lunches,and drinks.They were told as long as they stayed in line until 10:00 pm they would hand out numbered cards and they could then roam around until midnight.These guys were determinded to be the first four to get this unit.Ten more people showed up, popped a squat, and prepared to wait it out for the night.When I left work at 5:30 there were more people then we had systems. Management told the guy over electronics department to let these people know that we only have 14 units so they didn’t wait for nothing.Not one would budge.lol They are all waiting , hoping someone will get sick of waiting and fall out of line.It amazes me ..lol I can honestly say that I have never wanted anything THAT badly.I was thinking about it at work today,trying to figure out what I would wait in line for over 12 hours for.Maybe if they had a really nice computer on sale for like a hundred dollars..lol I just may have to get my chair and cooler and go camp out somewhere for that one..lol Is there anything that you have or would camp out at a store for ,if so what was it and how long did you have to wait ?

Pumpkin Fudge..mmmmmmmm!!!!!


I found this recipe in the October issue of my Southern Living magazine. I absolutely LOVE pumkin so I was very willing to try this one out. It turned out tasting awesome but I got impatient and did not cook it long enough, so it was not as hard as fudge is supposed to be. I had a friend from work tell me that some place locally makes pumpkin fudge and gives tours of the place. They said when making pumkin fudge you have to cook it to almost cracking stage because the pumkin is so mushy to begin with. I have the stuff to make another batch and so I will be trying again soon. Well I thought I would share the recipe will all of you so here it is.Let me know if you try and what you think.

Line pan with aluminum foil before you begin to cook the fudge.Once the candy thermometer reaches 234 degreesand the remaining ingredients are added,quickly spoon the fudge into the pan.

3 cups sugar
3/4 C. melted butter
2/3 C. evaporated milk
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
2 tablespoons corn syrup
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1(12-ounce) package white chocolate morsels
1(7 oz.) jar marshmallow cream
1 cup chopped pecans,toasted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

STIRtogether first 6 ingredients in a 3 1/2-quart saucepan over medium-high heat,and cook,stirring constantly,until
mixture comes to a boil.Cook,stirring constantly,until a candy thermometer registers 234 degrees (soft-ball stage)or for about 12 minutes.

REMOVEpan from heat:stir in remaining ingredients until well blended.Pour into a greased aluminum foil-lined 9-inch square pan.Let stand 2 hours or until completely cool;cut fudge into squares.Enjoy 🙂

He that refraineth his lips is wise

I looked at today’s proverb on my page and it seemed so fitting for me today.So much so I wanted to post it .The Lord works in mysterious ways I guess..lol

Today’s Proverb:
In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise.

Have a great night all …..

Skate Night

Last Tuesday Guppy,little one, and I went to the skating rink with the church.Little one had a skating injury a few years back and was shy of skating for a bit ,but it didn’t take her long at all to get back on the skates and get going.We took her skating a little while after she got her sling off her arm and she was real skittish ,which was totally understandable.Guppy just wanted to get her out there so she would not stay scared of it .She would mostly walk around on them unless he had her hand .She has a skating class at her day care which she took ,and boy did it show.Tuesday she was skating around the rink like a pro .It was so awesome to see her having so much fun.She was smiling from ear to ear.She was loving the fact that she recognized some girls from her church class and play practice.We may have to start going on more Tuesday nights.Apparently it is Christian music night and seeing as that is what we usually listen to it is perfect.Little one knows a lot of the songs so she was skating around singing along to them ..Too bad I didn’t bring the video camera.I did get to take some pictures but it seems that my camera is not conducive to dark places with movement ..lol So here was the best of the bunch ..Enjoy and have a great Monday !!

Look at these skates..lol Do these bring back memories?Man we really need to get him a pair of rollerblades.

I am not exactly sure what Guppy was trying to say here ..lol

Here is a pic of Little one playing one of the games….
