THANKFUL THURSDAY – Not in a house! Not with a mouse!

Good Morning and welcome! To you and to March!
Spring is in the air! Okay, maybe not this morning. It’s currently 24 degrees and we’ve got about 5″ of snow on the ground and more on the way thanks to Fux-a-tawney Phil seeing his shadow out in Gobbler’s Knob, Pennsylvania. Jerk.
But, spring is definitely on the way and you can smell it in the air and I’m thankful for that!

Today is Dr. Seuss’ birthday! If he were alive today he’d be 119 yrs. old! How crazy is that?
I’m thankful that we had Dr. Seuss in our world. I think all children everywhere had at least one if not all of his books on their bookshelves including at least 3 generations in my own family. Unfortunately, much like many other authors, some of Dr. Seuss’ books have made it to the banned pile and will no longer be published. Yep, seriously.

It’s total bullshit but sadly, it’s the world we live in now. I don’t know who has an issue with Dr. Seuss but I can guarantee you it’s not the kids reading his books because the kids that age aren’t examining “racist imagery,” they’re looking at bright pictures and learning rhymes. Holy hell… Just leave the fucking books alone.

Anyway, you can read about it here, “Six Dr. Seuss books will be discontinued because of racist and insensitive imagery.”

P.S. – My favorite Dr. Seuss book is this one…
Oh, and P.S.S. – I came across a really cool Dr. Seuss site. It’s called Seussville. You should check it out.
Oh and P.S.S.S (if there is such a thing.) – What’s your favorite Dr. Seuss book?

So, what’s on tap for everyone this Thursday? For me, it’s dr. appts. and tons of errands. It’s definitely going to be a long cold day but I’m thankful for the dr. appts. Sheesh. I don’t know if we have a shortage of medical staff or what but the wait times to get in to see someone are ridiculous. I have friends and family battling serious illnesses right now and some of them don’t have time to wait.  – How about where you live? Do the wait times to see a dr. seem longer?

I can’t believe we’re almost to another weekend. I swear it was just Monday… Anybody have any plans for this coming weekend?
I was hoping to get a little downtime but I’ve got some personal commitments that need to be seen thru and I’m thankful to be able to do so.

In other news – I turn 60 next month! What the actual hell??? When did this happen?? In any event, I’m very thankful to have another birthday!

Who else has a birthday coming up?? Be sure and share in the comments!

Happy Thankful Thursday, everyone! Make it a great one!

Missed Connection Monday is brought to you by your local Craigslist. These are real “love notes” that strangers leave for other strangers in the ‘Personals’ section on Craigslist. Or as I like to call it – Your local serial killer hunting ground.

You were waiting behind me as i was picking up my kid at the babysitters friday afternoon, your hoodie said beautiful disaster I could not disagree on the beautiful part. It’s be nice see there every friday.

****Dear Beautiful Disaster the author of this “missed connection.”
You’re a fucking creeper.

****Dear Beautiful Disaster in the hoodie, find another babysitter!

Britney it’s been a few years since we talked I was going to mail you your necklace. It came back in the mail and I didn’t have your # then totally forgot until I just found it. I’m so sorry. I had the best night with you and want to find you again. Email me about our date so I know it’s you and we can get in touch

*****Dear Britney I Have Your Necklace,
In your own words… “it’s been a few years since we talked…” You haven’t talked, you don’t have her number or her address, maybe she’s done this thing in life that we like to call… moved the fuck on! You might want to try it.

You complimented my facial hair and it started a little debate about barber vs groomer. You always have gold framed glasses and the cutest freckles. You are absolutely breath taking and I really really would love a chance to get know you. If by some small chance you see this and the feelings are mutual I would love a chance to take you out.

*****Dear RTB,
Omg. I can’t believe it! This may be the first love connection in the serial killer hunting grounds! She likes your facial hair, and you like her gold-framed glasses and freckles. 

Well, RTB… Let’s play a game of I Spy. I spy another couple of cuties that wear gold-framed glasses and I’m sure they have the cutest freckles… Might not be a bad idea to get some DNA tests before you take her out.

And to the complimenting, gold frame-wearing, cutest freckles chick. If RTB doesn’t work out. Here’s another guy with facial hair that you can compliment.
And BONUS! He wears gold-framed glasses too! You could be twinsies!

(When will people get a clue???)

So, I’ve been MIA, and here’s why. Sometimes I forget that this year I’ll be turning 60 and so I do some crazy things like trying to move some bottled water. I know, right? It’s like everything in my life now qualifies as an extreme sport! Fuuuuckkkkk
FYI, one case of 40 bottles of water weighs over 40lbs. I had 3 cases… And guess what?
Wow, does that suck!

Oh, and of course, this had to happen. Omg. I don’t know which is worse, the sneeze or the anticipation of the pain that you know is coming.

So, I’m nursing my back. Doing the whole ice/heat, Tylenol/ibuprofen treatments. I’m spending some time off of my feet and taking some time to heal. I know I’ve said this a million times in the blog but holy fuck, back pain sucks!

On the plus side, I’ve been reading a lot and of course watching the fucking man baby, Princess Harry. That’s a whole other post tho. I need to get myself horizontal for a bit. And I’m still coming around to visit your posts so I can catch up with all of you!

Happy Monday!
