2020 – OCTOBER HERE WE COME!

THURSDAY – OCTOBER 1
*****
What’s the scariest movie you’ve ever seen?
October, the beginning of all things pumpkin spice and all things scary.
FYI, I am not one of those people who dig the scary stuff, especially scary movies.

This is a perfect example of me watching anything even slightly scary.
I do aaalllll of these things and I may do them a hundred times in one night!
The scariest movie I’ve ever seen I first saw when I was about 7 yrs. old.
It terrified me then. It terrifies me now.
What were my parents thinking??¬† They thought it was so funny that I was so scared. I remember my mom telling me repeatedly that “it’s fake, it’s fake” – thru her laughter – and then she asked me,
“Oh, what are you afraid of???”
Seriously? I’m fucking 7!
This is what I was afraid of!
I grew up in Michigan. We had birds lined up on wires every day!


FRIDAY – OCTOBER 2
***** What’s your favorite NOT scary movie?
Well, it being the Halloween month I’ll go with a few I watch every year.
But…
My all-time favorite not scary movie is this one and I watch it a bazillion times a year. It’s just a cool movie.


SATURDAY – OCTOBER 3
***** Happy 3rd Birthday to this sweet girl, Miss Evelyn Rose.
And Happy Anniversary to these two lovahs… Tommy & Laci.


SUNDAY – OCTOBER 4
***** Happy Birthday to my beautiful baby girl.
Also, thoughts floating thru the universe for my sister who passed away 2 yrs ago today making for a bittersweet birthday for my daughter…


MONDAY – OCTOBER 5
***** In the crockpot.
Pork chops and tomato soup.
I’d never eaten this before my DIL made it and at first, I was all, eeewwww. Then. I tasted it and I was all yummmm.

Here’s a recipe that I found on Pinterest closest to how my DIL makes it.
(Minus the onion and tapioca.)

TUESDAY – OCTOBER 6
***** Something around the house.


WEDNESDAY – OCTOBER 7
And on the 7th day, Mimi rested…


I hope all of you are well.
Anything thrilling and spine chilling to report?

I’m taking a break from my personal FB and Instagram – again. So much nonsense going on and lately, I’ve had enough crap in my own day to day real life.
I’m still on Twitter but mostly just craft stuff now. I was getting politically out of hand over there and I just had to stop and shift my focus, which is what I’m doing at this very moment.

Since my sister died 2 years ago this week the whole beginning of October is an emotional rollercoaster for me now.

I love the start of fall but my sister died.
It’s my granddaughter’s birthday but my sister died.
My son’s wedding anniversary but my sister died.
Then, my poor daughter…
Happy Birthday, your aunt died this morning.
My daughter also got rear-ended in traffic that morning.
She was okay but talk about shittiest birthday ever…

It’s a tough time for me. I don’t do well with death at all.
Physical pain I can take.
Pain in my heart and soul? Not so much.


I hope you’ve all had a great week and I’ll be coming around to catch up!


MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY –

(T)RENDING – Blogging A to Z

Trending. The world according to Facebook and Twitter.
TRENDING on Twitter –
#Lemonade – Apparently when life gives Beyonce’ lemons she¬†makes a new album.

This is what the rest of us make.
#UFC 197 – Not.A.Clue but apparently Daniel Cormier is a pussy.
And of course, #GoodnightSweetPrince
TRENDING on Facebook –
***Death

Michelle McNamara: Crime Writer, Wife of Comedian Patton Oswalt, Dies at 46
Wilmington, Delaware: Teenage Girl Dies After Being Assaulted at High School, Officials Say
And, Prince: Family, Friends Attend Private Funeral for Musician, Publicist Says
Also trending? McDonald’s introduces the “Grand Mac” and the “Mac Jr.”
****Okay, here’s the thing. The “Grand Mac” is supposed to be bigger patties on a bigger bun.
Really? Because if you’re old like me you’ll remember when the original “Big Mac” had bigger patties and was on a bigger bun. – I just wanted to throw that out there…

Currently, the new “Grand Mac” and “Jr. Mac” are only available in Ohio and Texas. I don’t know if that’s because they’re just doing a blind test run or if they’re trying to drum up business for their local heart surgeons.
Here’s the calorie break down –
“Mac Jr” – 480 calories
“Big Mac” – 540 calories
“Grand Mac” – Weighs in at a whopping 890 calories!

Or there’s the healthier choice loaded with protein. This one is available on local roach coaches food trucks everywhere.
Another “T” word? TODAY
Today I will finish the mess I started yesterday.
Today I will stalk blogs.
Today I will finish an art project I started yesterday.
Today I will finish the laundry.
Today I will officially be caught up on the A to Z Challenge!
Today I will drink, much, much, much, much coffee because I need it!
Anything thrilling and spine-chilling planned for your Sunday? I hope whatever you’re doing it’s as fun as it can be or as peaceful as you need.
Happy Sunday and happy last week of A to Z’ing!
