In 2 days we will usher in autumn. It hardly seems possible because I know I was just sweating away ten pounds a day with all of the flippin’ heat we’ve had!
And still, it did nothing for my fat ass.
So, with a kiss and a smile or a kick in the pants and a shove down the stairs – most likely the latter. –
I wave goodbye to all things summer 2 days early and with that, I begin my “thankful” list.
#1 – I am thankful that I’ll be able to see again after all of the summer eye bleaching moments I experienced.

Okay, maybe not this exactly but pretty close.
#2 – I’m thankful that the cooler temps of fall will make other people’s deodorant appear as tho it’s actually working.
#3 – I’m thankful that everywhere I go now it will smell like pies and cookies baking!
I am soooo serious about this thankful list.
The number of people wandering around in dental floss when what they really needed was a circus tent was astounding!
It’s like they all got dressed in the dark!
disclaimer: I’m not “fat shaming” I’m just saying. Try putting on a bathing suit that fits.

And the stinky, sweaty, smelling people that seemed to always be in line right in front of me or right behind me??? Ugh. Seriously? Do you have nasal issues?? You can’t smell your own funk??
Sadly, there aren’t enough pumpkin spiced candles or pies to be baked that can get rid of the funk.
I just went over my thankful list and just in case you were wondering if it’s possible to be bitchy and thankful at the same time. It is.

I hope you have much to be thankful for today even if it’s bitchy thanks.
You know I always want to hear about it so drop your thankfuls in the comments below and have an amazing ‘Thankful Thursday!’

  1. I love your sense of humor. I’ve been around those funky people too and the ones that don’t know how to look in a mirror after they dress or if they do they don’t see what we see. Good grief.

    Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday, Karen. Big hug. ❤

    1. 😀 Thank you but isn’t it so true??? People walk around smelling like a 7th-grade boys gym locker and they don’t know? And you know, I wonder if when people look in the mirror they DON’T see what we see. Sometimes I look in the mirror and think I need to bring back my whole Joan Jett persona from the 80’s but noooooooooo. I don’t look like Joan anymore. The only time I’ll be in skinny jeans again is after I’m cremated and poured into them! And the dark eyeliner all around my eyes has been replaced with dark circles so I’m good there too. I do manage to get some spike in my hair but nope. I know the realities when I look in the mirror and I choose to dress accordingly or at least in such a manner that doesn’t cause someone to reach for the eye bleach! 😀


  2. Back in the 70s and 80s we all knew who the tourists from Quebec were…..the men were all in bananahammocks and the women in bikinis and let’s just say one would need gallons of eye bleach.


    1. EEEWWWWWWWW! I get that everybody should feel good in the skin they’re in but sometimes that’s a private personal thing or at least it should be..

    1. I so wish I could’ve sent you some! The triple digits are killer. Spring is a great time of year. I’m happy for fall and winter but I sure will miss the beautiful flowers of spring. – Thank you for stopping by, Rhonda. 🙂


  3. I’m so happy that Autumn is so close to being here. Where I live it won’t be cool in the sense that I need a coat but it would be as hot and it’ll start to cool off in October.

    1. I think everyone is happy at this time of the year and then January rolls around and it feels like it stays forever! Winter is my most favorite season. 🙂


  4. Well, your post made my day. It was very funny. I wonder too why all these sweat did not make any changes to my fat ass. Hahaha! 🙂

    Thank you for showing me the way how to be bitchy and thankful at the same time. LOL!


    1. Hahahaha. Yay I’m not alone in the summer sweat work out not working. Maybe the key is to get up off of my fat ass and move. Riiiiight. In triple digit heat. Not happening. I’m so happy I was able to help you out with being bitchy and thankful at the same time. It’s one of skills I learned when I was married. Hahahaha. – Thanks for stopping by, Clarice. – I just said that in Anthony Hopkin’s voice. 😀


  5. I love your sassy humor! I’m thankful for NOT being in the car anymore in 13 days we drove nearly 43500 miles. Although I am thankful for the opportunity to see all the beauty.
