So here's a question for ya...

How old (or young) do I look in these pictures? (FYI, my hair's in a ponytail in the back. I did not shove all of it up under the hat. LOL!)


Because the woman at the grocery store apparently thinks I haven't graduated from high school yet. LOL! She carded me when I tried to buy cigarettes yesterday. I laughed when she asked me for ID. Certainly I showed it to her, and I don't think any 33-year-old is going to complain about getting carded (and neither am I). But I found it highly amusing.

And in typical Allison fashion, instead of just showing her my ID, getting my cigarettes, and getting out of there, I felt the need to explain that I was wearing the hat because I hadn't yet showered that day. WHY would you tell someone that? [shaking head] LOL! She was laughing and said she didn't see any wrinkles so she thought she'd card me to be safe. I said something along the lines of, "Oh, there are wrinkles there." She said (while laughing), "Well apparently not when you don't shower." Snort! Dear god. I swear to god, if I had a brain-to-mouth filter, the world would be a much better place for everyone (although maybe not as funny). LOL!

So this morning I christened my new smoothie maker. I'm trying to eat healthier, and well, I eat absolutely, positively NO fruits or vegetables. I just can't bring myself to do it. Ick. However, I LOVE fruit smoothies. So when I was at Big Lots the other day and saw a smoothie maker for $20, I couldn't pass it up. So this morning I made a big pitcher of strawberry banana smoothies and oh... my... god... They're fucking DELICIOUS!!! Mmmmm... See? I can eat healthy too if I try. :)

(We won't mention that I had a big bowl of disgusting, sodium-filled Ramen for lunch, OK?)

------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm kind of at a standstill with my organization of the house. The next rooms to do are the bedrooms and the playroom and I just can't bring myself to start on them. The four rooms are going to take me weeks my friends. And frankly, as I go through things, I honest to god, have no where to put or take the things I don't want anymore. So I've decided to wait until next week to tackle those projects. That means today's my goof off day. Both girls are at school, so I've been playing around all day. I guess I should at least dust or something and I NEED to put away the 8 flippin' loads of clean laundry that are sitting upstairs, but that's all I'm doing dammit. And I don't care what you say. You can't make me be productive. :P

------------------------------------------------------------------------

OK gang... off to screw around some more. Have a rockin' weekend!

*giggle* I'm so bummed I never get to go to the pig roast. You'd be a friggin blast to hang out with.

DH got carded for cough syrup the other day. I nearly PIMP!

mamatulip said...

About 28 or 29. You do look quite young, but not young enough to get carded.

Sorry. LOL!

You don't *need* to fold the laundry...you can make it part of the landscape like I do. Besides, Davis would probably be disappointed if I caught up on laundry because then he wouldn't have his own personal mountain to climb.

Emma: LOL! That's because there are new laws that prohibit you from buying a certain amount of particular medicines in a particular time period (a day or two, I think). So they check your ID and put your driver's license # into their system so they'll know when (and how much) you bought. Dork. LMAO!

Katherine: Don't apologize! I didn't think I looked that young either. I don't really WANT to look 18. LOL! But it's nice to know I don't look like an old hag either. ;) I had my glasses on too come to think of it. Maybe that subtracted another few years. LOL!

September: Thanks for enabling me. :) And actually, I didn't put it away. Although I did take the huge mound and seperate into the appropriate bedrooms. So at least now I have 8 little mounds instead of 1 big one (and it will appear to Steve that I actually did something today. LOL!

G said...

defintely not young enough to get carded...but i'd say you look about 27 or 28 yrs old.

and i'm LOL cause i'd rather eat the fruits and veggies then drink a smoothie...seriously EWWWW

Tink said...

I'm only 23 and no one cards me anymore! Oh shit... Does that mean I look old? I love strawberry and banana smoothies. Blueberry and banana is another favorite. Mmmm.

Veronica said...

LOL! I get carded all the time. Last month Chris and I went to San Antonio for our anniversery. After a nice dinner on the River Walk we decided to have a drink at a bar by our hotel. Imagine our surprise when they wouldn't even let me thru the door because I didn't have my ID with me. (I'd left my purse behind in the room.)

And I wish I had a little of your motivation to even want to organize this house. I cleaned out the girls' drawers last month, but that's as far as I've gotten. Their closets are a nightmare. 4 girls plus a clothes horse of a mother is a BAD combination.

You're so cute.

Susie said...

You really do look young!!! But I wouldn't have shared the no shower story unless you looked horrid - witch you don't!! I am jealous - no one checks my ID any more !!

Amber said...

I was going to say 28, 29. Lucky!

:)

Kim: The Mom, The Myth said...

I'd say about 25. I wish I looked that young, I'll tell you that!!

Well how do they know you don't have a family of 15 all with the flu? huh? LOL
