Used Book Winners and Things I've Learned Thursday

I used to pick my two winners.

The numbers chosen were #6 and #27.




Congratulations to Mary (I'm not sure what her blog link is) for winning: Mudbound by Hillary Jordan


Congratulations to Erin of The Motherload for winning her choice of Suddenly or In a Perfect World - your choice since you've already read The Help.

This means that The Help and whichever book is still isn't chosen by Erin will be one of those up for giveaway next month along with two other books as well.

Thank you for participating. Winners...please drop me an email with your name and addresses.

Things I've Learned Thursday

1) Black eyed pea soup is mmmm, mmmm, good!

2) Guy athletes in winter sport competitions spit a lot. Why is that?

3) A chicken gizzard is a second stomach of sorts. Here it was I thought all this time, I was eating an "innocent" body part of a chicken but no...I'm now scarred for life. I don't know if I'll ever make giblet gravy during Thanksgiving again.

4) There will always be someone or something bugging me while I'm in the bathroom. I feel like I have my own potty entourage. They all dance when I come out like I'm a celebrity.

5) Dates have romance and sex lives. Who would've thought??

6) TV Boo has such an interesting job working as an editor at a news station. I had fun sitting in the anchor people's chairs and practicing my news spiel. I just knew it was the moment I had been waiting for. Unfortunately, I don't think they really saw my natural ability.

7) I'm very proud of my Son in Boo's success in teaching others how to get paid to exist. Not wanting to sound like an advertisement, if you have the desire to work and get paid for something that you love, he will give you great insight on how to make that happen. Check it out here.

8) Dogs have the worse timing when they decide they are going to barf. Humble chose to barf while we were enjoying a nice, yummy dinner. So much for having an appetite!

9) I am so tired of hearing my Wii Fit groan when I step on. For once, I'd like to hear it say, "Good for you for even having the courage to step on in the first place. So you ate a bit much, well, at least you enjoyed it!"

10) I totally cracked up when Boo got ready for work and I reminded him that he was off of work that day. That's like one of those peek a boo surprises from God!

What have you learned?


Mari said...

I'm laughing here because I just got done hearing my Wii fit groan at me! I have heard "great!" a few times, but usually it's just that groan.
FYI - cats barf at inopportune times too!

Nezzy said...

I have learned that the aroma of my homemade chicken noodle soup from the kitchen is makin' my tummy rumble. I have learned that I always look forward to poppin' over on Thursdays to read "things I've learned Thrusday!!!"

God bless and have a great day!!!

Menopausal New Mom said...

I so hear you on the dog barf one! What about my 3 1/2 year old who lovingly barfed all over me yesterday while I was trying to eat a quick lunch.

Pretty good timing eh??

Frau said...

I found Sophie barf that no one else in this house saw...My Wii fit is the Devil. What have a learned so much.

Mandy's Life After 30 said...

Oh, that black eye pea soup sounds good. Care to share the recipe? I'm soooo with you on the dog barf! You know what my crazy pets are like... they are worse than my two year old~

Heart2Heart said...

Congratulations to all the lovely winners of your books! I am sure that they will bless them immensely!

I haven't gotten that brave just yet to step on the Wii fit even though my kids keep begging.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Joanna Jenkins said...

That "Date" window sign is a crack up.

And what IS with all the spitting-- in any sport. What are guys thinking?!?!

The weekend is almost here! yeah.


Ina in Alaska said...

When one of my dogs begins the barf process I loudly say, to no avail, GO OUTSIDE GO OUTSIDE GO OUTSIDE!!!!

The date window is funny.

I have not learned a thing today but if I did, I forgot it already :D

Elle Bee said...


My cats seem like they're always barfing--GROSS!

Diva Ma @ Mommy Fabulous said...

LOL Girl The key is to get on the Wii Fit like you are excited! Almost jumping on. I found that when I hop on like I wanna be on it, she says GREAT!

lagirl/Sweet Tea said...

Girl, I have learned that I KNOW NOTHING. Nothing at all.
Check out my tomorrow Blog.
I'm looking for input.

Buckeroomama said...

Does the Wii Fit ever NOT groan? I haven't stepped on in a while.

Veronica Lee said...

I learned that I had gained several pounds during the Chinese New Year break. Must be the reunion dinner!

The flat grey fish in the pic is a promfret.

Danica said...

Oh my goodness my cat threw up the other day while we were eating dinner and I was grossed out! UGH Nice timing as yous said!!!

I have learned that the sun DOES make me happy!

Suz said...

Interesting that of all the things you said, barf got the most comments. Why is that? I think the groaning Wii Fit came in second.

I liked telling Boo that he had the day off was the best. What did he say? Or can you publish that?

Together We Save said...

That picture is to funny... Dates who knew.

Rona's Home Page said...

Even when you work from home 4:30 am is still too early to get up for work! Ugh!
I still do most of the housework despite working a full time job.
$100 doesn't go far at CVS!

Farila said...

I have learned to look forward to your lessons and have a laugh out of it..
Wonder why only male athletes spit a lot though...

Kwana said...

Congrats you've won an award on my blog today.

The girl with the flour in her hair said...

Ha. I love them all. Number 4 really made me laugh. I get that here too. Potty Paparrazi! (Or however you spell that) At least they don't have cameras...

And my dog always throws up where I am sure to step in it on the way to the bathroom in the middle of the night.

Ace said...

That just makes me want a Wii more. Maybe all that groaning would inspire me.

And laughing about never being alone in the bathroom. The same daughter who won't even try on a shirt in front of me thinks nothing of barging in and having entire conversations with me. If it isn't the people, it's the dogs. If I don't get the door latched tight they will push it open and sit in front of me gazing adoringly at me. I wonder if hermits actually get to do their business alone?

SMJ said...

I'm cracking up at your potty entourage, never thought of it that way...but I do believe I have one too!
TV Boo sounds like she has an amazing job, very cool...must be a Smart Boo at that!

Arizona Mamma said...

Ha ha ha! Totally feel you on the bathroom thing. I can never pee in peace.

Sherry said...

I'm roaring over the Wii fit are so funny!!!

I've learned lately that letting go and letting others "do" has tremendous benefits to all.
