Feel Good Friday Fragments & Breadsticks

If you're new here, by most Fridays my brain is fried so I go over the blogworthy notes I've made all week because I have CRS, which mostly turn into half-baked thoughts or rather Fragments, so that's what I do. And if I'm pissed about something I'll write a letter, which has in the past resulted in free PJs from Target & an attitude from American Girl. Today I'm also listing things that have made me happy this week. And I we're not even talking cocktails or happy pills because that's obvious.

Mommy's Idea

*I do not like cantaloupes.  Yuck!  Watermelons & honeydew, I'm good with, but cantaloupes make me want to puke. Just thought you needed to know that.

*I love getting free samples in the mail! Almost as much as good comments.  My cousin-in-law has introduced me to a new site that gives away a free sample of something every day! I am so pumped! It'll be like Christmas in my mailbox!

*Kate at Surrounded by Penises posted this & I'm totally stealing it because it's too funny & my kids keep asking to see it!  BTW, Kate is so funny & she has 5 boys like under 10, so you know she's ALWAYS got something going on over there & she seems relatively sane. So please stop by & visit her, tell her I sent you.

*My child (Baby Girl) who usually sleeps till mid-morning, has for the past 2 mornings been getting into my bed at like 6:45 AM.  She doesn't seem to understand that I'm trying to stockpile some sleep for when school starts back.  Plus I HAVE to stay  up till 11:30 to watch Chelsea. And she has recently learned the fine art of lying.

*I asked Bo who my favorite little boy was & he response was, "Me!" "But actually I'm a short kid." (I guess that means he's no longer a little boy.)

*My children consumed 9 packs of Cheez-It Gripz in 4 hours.  And they wonder why I won't buy snacks for school yet.

*I had a good time doing 2 Truths & a Lie yesterday. If you want to weight in on what I'm lying about, check it out. I'd love to read what you think!

RN Mama is hosting Feel Good Friday this week, so I joined in with her.

5 things that made me feel good this week:

1. that Bo wipes off everyone's kisses but mine

2. that Baby Girl got jealous when I was playing with my cousin-in-law's baby. "I thought I was your baby!"

3. that both Sassy's 1st grade & 2nd grade teachers have contacted me about her "issues" & offered to help in any way possible.

4. that several people, including my friend Kristy have offered advice & that after sending an email to the church, 3 people contacted me offering a typewriter for Sass.

5. all the people that love & are ordering my BFF's cute signs

Now that I've got the happy out of the way, here's what irritates me.

Dear Pizza Hut #31008,

I would like to call sometime to your attention.  It's called your menu.  If you'll notice it has breadsticks on it.  However, every time I try to order some, which btw is all my son prefers to eat, you are out.  How do you run out of breadsticks?  You have also been "out of" personal pans as well, which Sass prefers.  WTH?  Pizza & breadsticks, how hard is that?  Especially the bread sticks. Just take the large pizza dough & cut it into strips.  Seriously.  And to make the cheese sticks, sprinkle some cheese on top.  How hard is this?  That's kind of like Subway running out of bread, which has happened at Subway #31030.  Yet I continue to order from you.

Not a satisfied customer

Hey there! I am visiting from New Friend Fridays at The Trendy Treehouse!! Great blog!!

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

what a fun post. Don't know what to comment on first! Pizza hut- got it. We went to one and it was TERRIBLE too! I don't know what happened, but...ewww....

Babes Mami said...

I love the swagger wagon!!

Jennifer said...

I can't believe you haven't seen the Swagger Wagon before.

#3 is a super yay! I love that and it says so much about how she actually is in the classroom. They must see something in her or they wouldn't have offered to help.

RN Mama said...

Thanks for linking up with me today, you're the best!

I'm speechless about Pizza Hut. I hate to say this, but Pizza Hut's breadsticks aren't even that good, how can they possibly run out?

One time when I was pregnant Shawn and I went to Burger King, and they were all out of fries! What? A pregnant woman needs her french fries!

Sarah Wyland said...

Isn't pizza and breadsticks Pizza Hut's job??? That's crazy!

Tracie said...

I'm glad that Sassy's teachers are getting involved already. I can't keep food in this house while the kids are home. I get why you wouldn't buy school snacks yet.

Joy said...

I had posted that video on my blog a little while back cause the first time I saw it I about peed my pants!

if you like freebies sign up on Vocalpoint.com they send me freebies ALL the time and they are great freebies like full size bottles of Pantene shampoo!

Kameron said...

How hard is it when all you make is dough based items?? I'm pretty sure many of the employees there are not smart enough to work that one out anyway!

Jessica said...

So are you gonna share the web address for the daily free samples place or are you hoggin' it all to yourself? ;-)

Secret Mom Thoughts said...

Our subway has run out of bread too. Simple things people, c'mon.

Visiting from Feel Good Friday and I love your post as well as your attitude, we have a lot in common, when my kids were in grade school, the principal almost jumped into a locker every time he saw me because he knew I was pissed about something. I move a little slower now but can write one helluva letter if push comes to shove.


wife.mom.nurse said...

5 things ... #1 love it! Boys are so funny that way :)

Way cool with the free samples.

Fun :)

Foursons said...

Pizza Hut used to have the BEST pizza, they kinda stink now though. Way overpriced and doesn't taste very good. I hope you get some coupons out of your letter!

Thanks for linking up!

Lourie said...

I do my shopping on Fridays...by MOnday all the good stuff is gone. It's annoying really.

Adrienne said...

This is hilarious! That video had me LOLROTF! I also have this weird satisfaction from getting free stuff in the mail. Check out www.allyou.com
they have a free sample everyday, and if you missed it you can go back on their calendar and order it! HEEEYYY! :)
Thanks for the comment love on Shell's BFF this morning!

rite said...

PS i also host a weekly blog hop... feel free to check it out!

brainella said...

Personally, I think honeydew melons are like eating a sponge. Bleah.

Seems odd that Pizza Hut never has bread sticks -- maybe they are conspiring against you! :)

Kenna said...

I do not like cantaloupes either!

I loved this post alot! Totally made me laugh alot! I needed that thanks!

Pizza Hut takes way too long to deliver, plus there is doesn't even taste that good.



Shell said...

How do they run out of breadsticks?

That video cracks me up!

Kate@SurroundedbyPenises said...

Thanks for the linkup and bloggy lurrrrrve...If I "seem relatively sane" then I'm doing better than I hoped hehehe
I do not heart cantaloupes...4/5ths of my boys will eat them...I cube 'em up and skewer them on a kabob stick. They'll eat anything off a stick, I swear :)
After I saw the swagger wagon video, I went to the Maine DMV website to try to get it for my license plate......someone beat me to it...dammit.

Sandra said...

Went to visit Kate at Surrounded by Penises...how could I not visit a blog with such a terrific name! It's kind of like my dream anyway...only the penises are doing yardwork, cooking for me, cleaning my house, scrubbing my toilets...you get the idea!

Debra said...

Too funny. Our McDonald's was out of lettuce one Saturday at about 4o'clock one summer a few years ago. So, no salads. I threw a fit (like that would help) and 'nicely' mentioned that they should check the Safeway down the street. They just tore that McDonalds down this week. Coincidence?? :)

Rebecca Dot Com said...

Happy Saturday! proud follower now! come follow me back! enjoy your day and weekend! lets keep in touch!


ladyguinevere28 said...

Its only Pizza hut who would do the order from another city and deliver it to another city. Plus there is no delivery charge. Its really affordable. I did it with my beau. i am following you now from friday followers. Hope you could return the favor. its http://www.ladyguinevere28.blogspot.com and http://www.singlemotheronthego.blogspot.com

Enjoy your weekend. Thank you


The Drama Mama said...

#1 I love that video.
#2 I absolutely HATE it when I really want something and they tell me "we are out of it". I usually say, ok fine. Cancel my order then (but then again, I have dietary restrictions, so...). Still it's SUCH a disappointment.
#3 Those are some great things to feel good about!

Kelly said...

I am visiting from Miss Janice's blog. I am a mom too, (ages 6 & 10) and think your blog is too cute. I am a swagger waggon owner. My pizza hut has never run out of things. Crazy!

Okay, nice to meet you.

highheeledlife said...

Congrat's on winning Miss Janice's give-away ... I just had a quick peek around your corner of BlogLand ... fantastic !!! I will be visiting again .. and have ecome a follower so I don't miss any posts... Cheers .. HHL

Stephanie said...

The Subway by my office runs out of wheat bread ALL THE TIME!! So annoying!

Tales From My Empty Nest said...

I can't figure out what is going on with my computer. I am listed as one of your followers and where I manage the blogs that I read, your site is listed with the correct address on my list of favorite blogs.... yet your posts NEVER show up anymore on my reading list each day. I have tried and tried to figure out what could be wrong and I can't figure it out. I guess I am going to have to manually click on your site each day to see what you are doing. I have missed hearing about your sweet family. Never a dull minute in this techno world, is there? Hope you are doing well. Love & blessings from NC!

Liz Mays said...

I have to admit that if Pizza Hut did that to me, I'd still come back again and again and again. I love my Pizza Hut.

Free samples every day. Going to the mailbox would be the best ALWAYS!

Messy Mommy said...

No breadsticks? Unacceptable! They're my fave, only with cheese of course.

Love the video.

Jane said...

Oh no! Pizza Hut is never the same without breadsticks. They should seriously look into that. My daughter would truly be heartbroken. lol!
