Everyone is talking about it, so I figured I’d join in.
~~ The WEATHER. It snowed last night. That’s right. Snowed. Hello weather, read your calendar. It is Spring already. Frustrating.
But what frustrates me more is that people are actually wanting the death penalty for Punxsutawney Phil. Seriously??? What can be more stupid than basing your weather forecast on a rodent. A RODENT! But now you want to kill a RODENT for being wrong? America you are STOOOOPID!
In that same
vain vane vain I have a beef with Pothole’s street department.
This year Pothole, Ohio has received 2 major snow storms. These each dumped a good 8-10 inches on our sad little town. There were no snow plows going up and down our street, but today…TODAAAAAY when we get a whole 1½ inches, the plow came scraping loudly down our wee street at five minutes till five AM! There was NOTHING. TO. PLOW! Help a tax paying citizen out. Explain the logic on this.
~~ I washed my make up brushes yesterday.
~~ The boy got a new job.
~~ I cleaned off my computer desk.
~~ Last but most certainly not least, between the girl and I, we have eaten 2 packages of Reese Peanut Butter Eggs. YUM!
Have a great week Internets.
Happy rainy Monday Internets!
~~ Thursday the girl took me and her to a nail salon to get our nails painted. I normally don’t get my nails painted because they are thin, polish chips, and it all looks ugly by the time the polish has been on for 3 hours. Why bother? Anyway, it is now Monday and my “I’m not a waitress red” nail polish is hanging in there. No chips and just slight wear around the tips. I have GOT to find out what they use for a primer coat and a top coat. I think that is the key.
Ack! I just looked at my nails to admire them and my right ring finger has a chip.
~~ I got a box in the mail this week containing some beautiful red variegated boucele yarn from my friend Cara. It is so lovely. I also received a beautiful silver bracelet that she made. It looks gorgeous on me if I do say so myself.
~~ I ordered some fabric from JoAnn’s fabric online…on Feb. 9th. Yes Internets…FEBRUARY 9TH. I have yet to receive it. I have emailed, and called and emailed again. sigh….I don’t think it is going to get here in time for me to make what I wanted to.
~~ The girl wants me to make her a dress. I made her tons of dresses when she was younger and she wore them all out. But this one has a zipper. Oh! Internets! How I loathe the zipper!! How I don’t want to make this dress, however, I have told her I would. Why…why…why…did I agree??? Oh yeah! I love her, that’s why.
~~ A lot of information has been flying around the Internet about Common Core standards. Please…I beg of you…take some time out of your day to learn about it. It is a bit lengthy, but it is so very important that every. parent. is aware.
~~ Proverbs says “laughter does good like medicine”. I believe it. I have been heartsick over an ongoing issue for some time now. I haven’t been sleeping well. Last night we watched Thou Shalt Laugh. This particular segment had me laughing so hard tears were running down my face and my cheeks hurt from laughing so hard. I slept so well last night. I blame it all on laughing.
~~I rarely watch commercials. I can’t stand, them so I DVR everything that I want to watch. Saturday there was nothing left in my DVR que, so the girl and I watched some live tv. And I had to endure the commercials.
It never failed. There was a weight loss commercial immediately followed by a chocolate/restaurant commercial. Every. single. time.
Oh the irony.
~~Superman has started taking the boy across the street to Boy Scouts every Monday night. The neighbor boy is so excited about it. He never stops talking. Ever. Even if there is nothing else for him to say he makes stuff up. I never thought so much noise could come out of someone so small.
~~Girl Scout season is in full swing here. I ordered some, and now I’m just waiting for her to deliver them. Thin Mints….they are the filet mignon of the cookie world.
~~Friday the boy, his wife and their girl came over.
We made cookies together.
The girl got Jax some red sparkly shoes and a sparkly skirt.
It was so wonderful to spend some time with them….unfortunately about 10 minutes after this photo was taken, the girl got jot with a mild case of food poisoning. I felt so bad for her. She was just. so. sick. But she made a rather quick recovery. I like to think it was all due to the loving care of her mother, but it was most likely the Gatorade that I forced her to sip every 5 minutes. Nope…it was all me, ’cause I’m just that fabulous of a mom.
Next time we’ll finish those cookies.
Hello again Monday.
~~Not much going on around here…It snows, it gets warm, it gets cold, it snows….never ending cycle. March 21 I’m waiting for you….
~~Grace my cat is sick. I don’t think she is going to be with us much longer.
~~I heard from my soldier. He has lovely handwriting. Wish “I” had that lovely of handwriting.
~~The girl and I are going to watch our DVR’d episode of The Walking Dead tonight. Seriously! Last weeks episode had the girl and on squealing and on the edge of our respective chairs the entire show.
Happy Monday y’all!
This past week flew by.
Went to my parents house yesterday. Had a blast!
I was looking at my mother’s hands. She has old hands. I asked her when she started getting the dreaded age spots. She said about 20 years ago….and I’m 20 years younger than her. Hello lotion, I’m your new best friend.
My dad went to Georgia for some training for work. He left yesterday. He texts like a typical man.
~~Hope you have a good flight daddy.
~~How was your flight?
♠ Rough flight. Squally kid beside me.
~~Sorry you had a bad flight.
♠ At least the kid fell asleep
♠ On shuttle to hotel
♠ They don’t have a room for me. Said I have to pay for the room.
Side bar….the room had already been reserved and paid for.
So, we women sat wondering why they couldn’t find his reservation, upset that he would have to pay for the room etc. Half an hour later I get this.
♠ They found me. I’m at the wrong hotel.
Dear Bayer Corporation in Germany, distributed by Glaxo Smith Kline,
$20 for one pill?!?!?!
Thuh-won-teeee dollars for one pill??????
Let’s see…either I purchase groceries and gas or medication. Help me decide Bayer corp/Glaxo Smith Kline.
My friend Deb posted her random Monday.
She suggested that we whine.
I generally don’t do that here on the Internets. The people at home get to hear it. I’m going to give them a break, so for your reading pleasure I’m gonna whine.
~~ Weather! It is cold, then it is warm, then it is cold, then it is warm, then it is cold, then it is rainy, then it is windy, then it is cold. Please! Make. Up. Your. Mind!
~~ Neighbor’s dog! My neighbor has a rottie. She is an affectionate dog, but she doesn’t listen. They also don’t have a collar or leash on her. So she runs wild when they let her out. Runs wild all over the space that Chloe does her business. Which in turn makes Chloe very upset. So upset that she has to sniff every. square. inch. of. grass. before she does her business. Which in turn makes me have to stand forever outside~ because I’m a good dog owner, have a collar and leash on Chloe at all times~in the weather (see above).
~~Speaking of dogs and their business…Superman doesn’t pick up Chloe’s business till there isn’t a spot for her to go on….argh
~~ Gas prices. Nuff said.
~~ The dishwasher. I tweeted about this before, but seriously people. There are 3 adults living in this house. Why does it seem like I’m the only one that knows how to load and unload the dishwasher? I KNOW that I have shown each one of you how to do so
~~ I tried to place a hold on a book at the library online last night. Seems as though my library card has expired. EXPIRED??? Why? why does a library card expire??? It just shouldn’t happen. Now I have to go all the way to the library, and renew my card. sigh.
