FREE TRIAL MONTH

Seems I had a bit of a crash n’ burn with the month of January. I’ll try to do better this month.
Apparently by starting 4 days into the month.
#DoOver
QUESTIONS –
***Did any of you get the chance to see the super blue blood moon?
– I missed it. The clouds were all over the place down here in the valley and it was way too early in the morning to go trekking up the mountains.

***What about Punxsutawney Phil’s prediction of 6 more weeks of winter? True or false? Yay or nay?
If that proves to be true it won’t bother me in the least! We’ve had record breaking temps into the 60’s and that is a beautiful thing!

***Are you watching the Super Bowl today and if so, who are you rooting for? The Patriots or the Eagles?
– I know nothing of the Eagles but I’m pulling for them and ONLY because Tom Brady irritates me. The only time I root for the Patriots is when they’re playing the Seahawks and that’s only because EVERYONE out here is Seahawk crazy and they shove it down your throat with a pitchfork. Seriously.
Oh, and PS, I won’t be watching the Super Bowl. I’ll be Netflixing The Godfather trilogy.

***If you are watching and even if you’re not I suppose, what’s your favorite Super Bowl food?
– I like a good batch of chili and some pulled pork sandwiches and random chips n’ dips.
IN THE CRAFTING CORNER –
Too many irons in the fire! Crocheting, sewing, painting, Cricut. One day I’ll get around to taking pics and actually posting them here!

STREAMING –
I’ve been cheating on Netflix with Hulu and just finished watching a great show, now canceled, of course, called Revenge.
It – was – amazing! And now I want to be Emily Thorne/Amanda Clarke because she is badass.

I’m not streaming anything else at the moment. I usually only stream when I’m crocheting, it’s a mindless craft for me so I can watch while I crochet. Right now I’m painting and cutting with my Cricut. This requires my attention so it’ll be Dr. G Medical Examiner streaming in the background. You don’t really have to watch Dr. G to know what’s going on. You can listen. She explains things pretty thoroughly.
ON THE HOME FRONT –
First and foremost, NO FLU! Not here, not with any of my kids or any of my grandchildren and I am SO incredibly thankful for that! I hope the same holds true for all of you! This flu that is going around is no joke! If you haven’t done so already, please, GET YOUR FLU SHOT!

However, despite not having the flu I am sickened. Sickened that one of our local priests – not mine – was arrested and charged with 10 counts of felony sexual exploitation and 1 count of a controlled substance. It’s beyond disturbing to me on so many, many levels.

Also disturbing? The USA Gymnastic sexual abuse cases. What the hell is wrong with people?? Is there no safe place for our children and grandchildren?? It’s so infuriating and kudos to the dad that went after that piece of shit team doctor, Nassar. The deputies should’ve moved a little bit slower and let that dad get in at least one good fist to that scumbag’s head! As my kids posted on Facebook, “Mom, this would’ve totally been you.” Yes.. Yes it would have.

I’ve been spending a ridiculous amount of time cleaning up my computer. Downloading and saving what needs to be downloaded and saved because as much as I hate to see my lit’l all in one Dell – that my kids hate – go, I think she’s on her last leg after nearly 5 years. Now the only decision to be made is laptop or desktop…
Going to make my rounds now. Reading, commenting, sharing, posting. I hope you all have a beautiful Sunday today and if you’re rooting for a Super Bowl team, I hope they win!
MIMI’S QUOTE FOR THE DAY –

I BLAME KINDERGARTEN

This is a repost from 2016. Why?
Because in the words of Danny Zuko in Grease…
I’ve not had a really bad cold or flu this season and I don’t want to start now. This repost says it all and I’m taking some Zicam and heading to bed.
**************************

I’ve been sick. It’s contagious. You can read about the inconsiderate asshole I caught it from here. And ya’ know, the more I’ve thought about it the more I’m convinced that we learned this inconsiderate behavior in kindergarten. Seriously.
I blame kindergarten.
leaves barSharing is a big deal in kindergarten. There was a whole list of things to share in kindergarten.
***Share your crayons.
***Share your paste. – I’m old. –
***Share your paints.
***Share the swings, the teeter totter, the jump rope. Your bat, your ball, your mitt.
***Share EVERYTHING!

Yeah. Thanks, kindergarten.
You should’ve had a list of things you DON’T share.

Here, let me help ya’ out with this one.
Top of the list????
***Don’t share your fucking germs!!!!
***Don’t share your cold.
***Don’t share your flu.
***Don’t share your diarrhea.
***Don’t share your ringworm.
***Don’t share your pinkeye.
***Don’t share your fucking lice!!!

I’m pretty sure parents everywhere would appreciate my list.
What they won’t appreciate?? Missing work to clean up shit and vomit from every member in their household including themselves!
leaves barFortunately, I think I’m on the tail end of this “bug.” It’s moved to my ears and I’ve still got one stuffed nostril and one runny nostril. I’m thinking about shoving a tampon up the runny nostril except what happens if I pull it out and then that nostril is all stretched to hell and doesn’t go back because I’m fucking old and your skin doesn’t bounce back like it used to in your 20’s/30’s??? Then I’m stuck with one big ‘ol, floppy Kevin Bacon, cannon sized nostril!
Not even kidding. Kevin Bacon has the biggest fucking nostrils ever.
See?? GIANT nostrils!
leaves barHere’s how you can do your part and not be an inconsiderate asshole during cold and flu/snotty “bug” season.
If you can, stay home and get yourself/child better.
Cover when you cough/sneeze.
Wash your hands, wash your hands, wash your hands.
Make sure your kids cover when they cough/sneeze and that they wash their hands too!
It’s soooooo important.
Kids pass this shit around like it’s a joint at Woodstock! Everybody gets a hit whether you want one or not!

Schools and daycares are one giant petri dish of all things contagious.
I’m not saying spray your kid down with Lysol but ya’ know…. You spray them with ‘Off’ in the summer time..
It’s a thought..
