Claw Machine Update

Long time no blog.

Yes, it saddens me that I haven’t been on here at all in the past couple weeks, but I am so tired at the end of my days anymore, I just don’t have it in me.  I’m not sure if anyone has noticed, but I’m sorry for those of you that enjoy the blog and haven’t had anything to read here lately.  I have a lot that I want to write, but I haven’t had the time.  The twinnies will be two years old in September, and they have been practicing for their ‘terrible two’ stage on the regular.  They practice the biting, the fighting, the hair pulling, the hitting and the word ‘no’ like champs.  Ah…I am a referee.  I just need a black and white striped outfit and it’s a legit set up.

I wanted to do a little update on the claw machine post because I recently went down to the beach to hang with my friends for a night.  The hubster gave me a 36 hour pass to unwind by myself and I didn’t ask him twice.  I headed straight for my homeland, and went and saw my bestie, Stella.  We ended up going out to our old hangout spot, The Cork Bar and they have a claw machine in there now.  My friend Debbie is funny about claw machines, because she says that she always gets something out of them.  We had a long talk about this after I wrote The Claw Machine post and so when I noticed it in the bar this visit, I challenged her skills.  The first time was no dice, but the second time she did win a toy.  It was a talking, ‘Annoying Orange’ and boy was it annoying.  It was a loud voice laughing, and it said a few phrases too.  So, basically I was being punished every time I had to listen to it.

I just wanted to let her have her moment to shine because she believes in claw machines and I guess I will admit that some people are good at them.  I’ve never been a believer until that night though.

This post is dedicated to all those that know how to work a claw machine.  ;)

    Two things. First, I like blogs that are follow-ups because I like when the story goes on! Second, I did notice that you had been “away” from the blogging for a little while. This actually made feel better about my own need to rest sometimes from writing (I am not alone). Take heart: You haven’t lost it–you’re just too busy living the life you will later have time to write about (take quick notes!)
