Hey People…it’s 29* outside. Yeah. That’s COLD>
Now…it’s Colorado. So it’s been way colder. And I’m from Montana so I’m pretty sure it’s colder there and we have the sun keepin’ us super toasty and for that I’m sorry. I have no weather control. If I did, it would always be 50* in the morning and get no warmer than 75* in the afternoon, cooling down to a lovely 60* in the evening. The skies would be clear so we could see the stars and sometimes in the morning we’d have fog and some drizzle just for delight. Because I love that weather.
I know Mom, you don’t like that. But you’re in MT. You can have any weather you dream of. I’ll dream of fog and drizzle in the mornings that leads to brilliant Denver sunshine.
I’m going to run on the treadmill because this ice cold might make my head yell. The high is 39*. Pretty bad when the morning starts out 10* away from the high. Gosh, it is really pretty though. The sun is screamin’ beautiful and it’s clear as heck. We’ll see. Maybe I’ll wear a hat.

I made Sean breakfast this morning. I am on just a little sleep and a not friendly migraine. It already feel better but it was rough in the night. We’ve taken Sean off gluten and dairy for the next two weeks so I made him some hash browns, eggs and sausage. It turns out I made him hash blacks, eggs over scrambled, and sausage. I can usually make breakfast. I am totally off today.
I spent the day at the the mall yesterday and the mall I was at (I’m in Denver…they have MALLS… )actually had a store for Teslas. A whole store with Teslas (the electric car that is so so fabulous but also cost as much as my house. I’m not kidding) in it. This was my first clue I should not be shopping there. When we first got to Denver many years ago we went to Cherry Creek Mall and just entering that place we felt like we needed to have our credit card scanned…we imagined a voice stopping us at the door. (read this in a very sexy woman’s voice) ~We’re sorry. Our sensors indicate you do not carry enough credit on your card. You are denied entry. Please try again later. Thank you for visiting…Cherry Creek Mall Denver~.
But of course, that’s totally out of the realm of possibility, right? (nothing is at this point…I mean, we just elected Donald Trump. God help us). Well now I’m at Park Meadows Mall and there’s a Tesla store! The basic bare bones car is $75,000! Holy freaking cow. And yes. It’s amazing. Consumer Reports gave them a score of 103 out of 100 and then had to revamp their whole scoring system. They’re in a league of their own. Amazing.
I went on far too long about this. The gist is I went to another little store and bought my friend her Christmas and birthday presents and after that…everyone else gets Dollar Store gifts. Everybody? You can blame Monica Sue. They were too cute to pass up.
I actually don’t feel overwhelmed by Christmas this year and yet….I totally should be. NO CLUES what I’m doing. Just wingin’ it.
I was looking on Craigslist yesterday and found some GREAT barstools. I messaged the guy to buy them and he said they were totally still available. I asked how tall they were up to the SEAT. This is important. He said he was at work and didn’t know.
He said, “Someone else inquired about them this morning but didn’t get back to me yet. They wanted to know the same thing. I don’t have a tape measure but I’m 5′ 8 and they are a little under waste high.”
Okay, people make spelling errors, spell check on phones, etc. I’m totally going to not judge him on “waste” high. Probably. But um…WHAT? Okay…( please say in that incredulous ~I can’t believe he said that~ voice). How the hell is that even REMOTELY accurate??
He talked about using them at an island and they were also waste high. Hm. Waste was repeated. I will now judge him slightly.
So I inquire…are they counter height or bar height? I’m looking for the magic number of 24″. Stools that height just disappear on Craigslist. So frustrating. I joke that I’ll have my Marine son in VA measure himself. He’s 5’8″. He won’t think that’s weird at all.
He says he’s not a Marine but it should work fine. (what?)
I think he drinks. Or, it’s Colorado, maybe he does something else.
Before I go to his house I AGAIN ask him to measure. His house is not close.
He replies, “2 feet is shorter than most chairs” (sigh)
I say, “No, it’s actually a standard counter height for stools but some are bar stool height so the seats are 29″ and that’s a little too high for my counter. And me. I’m short..LOL”.
He comes back and says to me, “My 26 inch bike rim was smaller than the height you wanted. I’m guessing it’s larger than 24 inches” (Dude, you’re killing me)
At that point I told him he obviously has someone else looking at them and he should go with them. He said no, but I said I really need the 24″ stools and unless he measures and finds that magic number I really appreciate his time and to have a great night. Sean said we should take a picture of Sean holding the tape measure and I said, “if I was a man he wouldn’t be freaking treating me like I’m 12 years old and I don’t know how to measure something. It’s stupid. I no longer want the damn stools”.
I’m not desperate. I have bar stools currently. I just want to update a few things. And that is my drama for the day. Bet that kept you on the edge of your seat!
The cold wind will hold me off…but otherwise running at 5am, cold or not…best feeling ever.
