Pumping in Plastic – My Gas Station Germ Phobia

Wellness Wednesday

Hello Friends, I hope all is well in your world.

I bet if you asked the question “where is the “Happiest Place on Earth”,  most people would respond Florida, right? But how about if you asked this question, “where is the germiest place on Earth”

I don’t know about you, but for me it’s at the gas station, but it’s not the gas station’s bathrooms, it’s the gas station’s gas pumps! With a 100 mile daily commute I am at a gas station at least twice a week filling up, just follow me on Swarm/Foursquare to get an idea.  And it’s because I’m there so often I sometimes wonder about the person who used the tank handle before me and if the gas station attendants regularly clean the handles. pumping with plastic

 

Just the thought of touching all those germs from the millions of hands grosses me out to the max!  That is why I keep plastic gloves in my glove box, after all, that’s where gloves are supposed to be kept – right?  I also have a box of gloves hanging by the back door at home so I can grab a few if I run out of the ones in the car.

I know people have stared at me at the pumps, but I don’t care and I feel better knowing that I am not getting or spreading germs at these pumps.  Afterall, with all these viruses and diseases being spread around it’s better to be safe than sorry.

What say you, do you have a germ phobia?  

Stay Blessed ~ No Stress in 2014!

Tree Trimming Toddies

Hello Friends Merry Christmas Eve!

Do you remember the days when we would decorate and trim the tree on Christmas Eve, then we started the weekend after Thanksgiving, then moved it up to Thanksgiving night,

and now it’s like what…the day after Halloween? treegoldM2

If you are a regular follower of mine then you know that I didn’t start decorating until Saturday….so now my tree is going to stay up until Valentine’s Day!

I recently visited my favorite liquor store, Pockets Discount Liquors…no let me stop lying because if you also follow me on Foursquare you know I’m “The Mayor” of Pockets!  Although I’m mainly a wino wine drinker, I do know others who enjoy something a wee bit more intoxicating so Sanjay and I came up with these “Tree Trimming Toddies”

Pockets Discount Liquors

Ignite the Night with Rum Chata and Fireball Cinammon Whiskey

HAVE A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Lunch from Los Machados

Hello Friends, I hope you are having a good Sunday

Yesterday after car shopping we stopped at Dutch Country Farmers Market to drop off the vacuum cleaner hose for repair.  After checking in on Foursquare, I unlocked a Loyalty Badge and was awarded 1 lb of FREE Chicken Tenders from Stoltzfus BBQ.  It was definitely a pleasant surprise and was going to be a perfect match for The Ghost Hot Sauce that I had just purchased.

Tired and hungry we drove over to Los Machados Mexican Restaurant  for a take out lunch.  This was my second time ordering the Texana Salad and it’s delicious; lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers and red onions are topped with large succulent shrimp, tender and perfectly seasoned slices of beef and chicken.  I added a few drops of The Ghost Hot Sauce to the salsa dressing and BOOM it was on like popcorn!

Hubby ordered the Vegetarian Delight #10; veggies cooked on the grill, served over a bed of rice and topped with cheese.  Tayair had the Enchiladas Supreme; 1 chicken, 1 bean and 1 cheese and beef enchilada topped with lettuce, tomato, guacamole and sour cream.  This family style, authentic Mexican restaurant is colorful with a fun atmosphere and the next time we’ll dine in so that I can order from it’s impressive bar.

OOTD – 1980's Belt

Hello Friends and Happy Monday.  I hope you all had an enjoyable weekend with a chance to relax.  If you follow me on Instagram or Foursquare you know that I spent mine cleaning out desk drawers, shopping at Costco, Walmart and upgrading my Blackberry to a Smartphone at Radio Shack.  This morning I spent way too much time trying to decide on a belt and eventually settled on one that I’ve had since college, sometimes it pays to keep things.

Remember when I purchased the the pencil skirt and top from Target (here).  The shoes and cami were purchased at Ross.

Linking up today with Tough Cookie Mommy – hop on over and read a new blog.

Save A Lot Bargains

On Friday, my son and I went to Save A Lot, a grocery store that I pass everyday on the way home but have never stopped. They had some good bargains especially in the produce department. Tayair thought it was weird that we had to pay a quarter to get a shopping cart, but understood the concept when we returned the cart and got the quarter back. This is not a fancy store nor is it “ghetto” as some people posted on Foursquare but the price is right for certain items as shown below:

These turkey links were awesome on the grill!

Bouillon cubes – 2/$1.00

Ground turkey – $2.99

Bar-B-Que Sauce – $.77 cents

My FAVORITE veggie!

Bagging your own groceries is another way the store saves you money.

I will definitely be back!
