Stuffing, urine remover, and Leggo My Eggo

I'm in my home office doing some work, Anthony's in bed sleeping, and I can hear Lucky on the other side of the house chomping away on his food. He's never been a quiet eater but that's not something most dogs tend to worry about. He is pretty weird because he always has preferred to eat at night, quite often after we're both in bed sleeping. He's a one of a kind dog.

Blood pressure update: I just took the reading (I own one of those fancy pants blood pressure monitors) for the first time since I started the new blood pressure medication that Dr. Pounds prescribed. I've been on it about a week. It's the lowest reading I've seen in years. The bottom number hasn't been under 100 in a long time. Maybe since World War II. On October 15 it was 169 over 110, the reading I just took was 139 over 94. I guess the new medication is working. There are two side effects I've noticed: 1.) My poops are more regular (there's your too much information TMI moment for today) and 2.) I've been getting less headaches. I was hoping I'd get an awesome super power like x-ray vision or become sexually irresistible but that hasn't happened... yet.

I woke up this morning after what seemed like a super short weekend and had this premonition that something big is going to happen this week. I don't know what big really means -- whether it would be in the world, or just my life. Then, I remembered that every time I've had that feeling nothing out of the ordinary happens. I'm always caught off guard when a big thing happens and never expect it. My excitement was short lived. It might have been because I really had to pee when I woke up.

Sunday was dinner and grocery store day (as always) and I shot photos (as always). Anthony and I went to Whataburger for dinner and Walmart Market for groceries. It was pretty routine. Maybe that means its the calm before the storm (you know, the big thing I am thinking is going to happen). Or, before the pee.

What a sign on Whataburger
at Speedway and Woodland

Anthony wants his food, dammit.

Chicken strips and bacon cheeseburger
plus the obligatory fries

Here's my bacon cheeseburger.
All that's left is the on nom nom.

It's the first week in November and
we're totally in holiday mode at the stores.
You can even get your coffee creamer
in peppermint mocha or frosted sugar cookie

Green Giant Steam Crisp Mexicorn
Or, as they call it in Mexico, corn.

Odom's Tennessee Pride
Sausage and Maple pancakes.
"Taste The Pride" makes me
want to name my no-no parts
"The Pride"

Even Triscuit is in the holiday spirit
with cranberry and sage crackers

Mrs. Cubbison wants you to enjoy
your holidays with some stuffing.

Look more fabulous with bling
Scrubbee gloves.

Clorox Urine Remover
The little pictures on the left side
of the bottle are quite helpful, in
case you need inspiration as to
where you could tinkle and then
use this product to remove it.

HUGE Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
There are two half pound cups
in this package, which sounds
like a date I've had.

You can now make Red Lobster's famous
cheddar bay biscuits at home.
Just add cheddar, water, butter,
and a bay.

Glade "Hit The Road"
Smells like a road on a perfect fall day:
A combination of leaves and tar

Glade Sing Out Loud scented candle
Gingerbread Spice, which makes
you sing like a Spice Girl.
So tell me what you want, what
you really really want.

Time to get the Halloween stuff outta here.
Must make room for Valentine's Day
