Park=fun for all!

So the little mister and i went to the park today, as per our normal bi-weekly trek. And i decided that it was high time that he got to run around the happy little water part of the playground. So one dollar later, there we were! I am not sure what it is about water squirting out of random holes in the ground, but damn, we were there for an hour and a half, and could have stayed even longer. I love watching him have fun, and there were lots of kids there for him to play with. My favorite part was the "lifeguards" on duty giving the littl'un high fives every time he went down the water slide. My least favorite part was the sophomore in high school girl who was so pregnant that her belly button was popped out in a bikini. I am sorry, but the little red bikini in addition to the enormous stomach and "tramp stamp" were the saddest things i have seen in a long time. Maybe it is just me getting old....but yikes.

I have decided that the best thing about the park is the lack of money involved. Gotta love cheap entertainment!

BUY SOME BREAD

Only in harrison....srsly.

Why would a store celebrate their 22nd anniversary?

If you gotta dollar, go and buy some bread from bigg's, it is five loaves for a buck, not real sized loaves, more sub style, but whatever. It will make Jonny Mac less stressed, and we all love Jonny, so yeah!

They have like 30,000 packs, and only a dollar each!

go and get cha some!

Ok, so i am all about growing up and stuff, but does everthing have to change all at once? Fuck, i am feeling inadequate, and adequate, and confused, and tired, and oh just lots of stuff.

Why is it that i have such a hard time being happy for others? I am supportive on the outside, but on the inside i just want to scream! I feel like everything is a struggle for me and for others it just falls into their laps.
ok, that is enough!

anyway, just came home from the gym, and my muscles are jelly, and i just ate a ton of chicken!! crap, gotta go to work soon, i hate going to work when it is pretty outside.
