2020 MISSED CONNECTION MONDAY – Wild Hair

❤ “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 of Craigslist. Or as I like to call it –
“Your local serial killer hunting ground.”

YOUR NEW HOUSE
Was doing sone work on your new house and we made eye contact and you smiled. You seem lonely and I think there may have been something there. You were a beautiful blonde bombshell. If you think this is you tell me where you were building
***The only thing I have to say about this is…
Next on ID, Nightmare In Suburbia.

Seriously, this one gave me the creeps for real. The guy knows what this woman looks like, where she lives AND the layout of her home. Bonus. He’s already making up some psycho imaginary scenario about her seemingly lonely life.

This would be my response…
 MATURE FEMALE AT FRED MEYERS

***Awwww…
Dear Random Guy at FM,
It’s very sweet of you to notice. I did just get my hair cut but I’m really not into the whole “serial killer hunting grounds of Craigslist.” Thanks anyway.
Sincerely, Mimi.
PS – I drive a lot of people crazy.

Happy Monday, everybody! How was your weekend?
Mine was unplugged for the most part. I did have to check on kids back east and Miranda up on the mountain.

The photo below is at Miranda’s ranch yesterday.
We got about 3″ of snow here in the valley and they’re calling for a week of snow. It’s still not cold enough to keep it around for very long which is fine by me. I love the snow but January is usually such a frigid, gray month that seems to drag on forever.

Totally missed posting on Friday because I started decrapifying my bedroom closet. Why is that everything seems to grow tenfold once it comes out of a closet??? Seriously, cleaning closets make the biggest cleaning messes! I’m surprised at how much crap a person can get into a closet!

Anyway, so the decrapifying continued on and consumed my whole weekend because I may or may not be a hoarder of dresses, socks and crafting/sewing shit. I’m well over 100 on my decrapifying challenge.

❤ Aaaand, speaking of decrapifying… Seems we need to decrapify our beloved Luci. The vet did a complete head to toe exam… again… plus blood work, x-rays, and an ultrasound.
$184 later…
Our dog is full of shit.

With age (she’s 14) her spine has curved and that curvature combined with her just not being nearly as active as she once was, plus, a recent round of anti-biotics, it appears that Luci’s “plumbing” has gotten clogged. She’s taking a 1/4 tsp of Miralax twice a day. It’s a slow go but at least it’s a go!

❤ How are all of you surviving the crazy weather?? My kids in Michigan all got different weather. The one up north got dumped with snow (of course) and the other two down state, one got ice and rain, the other got nothing. Go figure.

Okay. I need another cup of java joe and then I’m heading to all of your blogs to catch up!

MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY –

CURRENT SITUATION…

Seriously. I’ve been awake for hours and the only thing I’m ready to do is to drink more coffee!

Late nights and early mornings…
In the words of Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover) in one of my all-time favorite movies, Lethal Weapon…
When Mel Gibson was soooo hot and before he went off the rails a bit.
CURRENTLY I AM…
Reading –

Watching –
Listening to –
An 80’s soundtrack that my future son-in-law made me.
This song actually made the list. So many people overlook this gem!
Fun song. Great beat. Easy to dance to. I’ll give it a 96…
As I date myself with an American Bandstand reference.
Bonus points for me! It’s from a Soul Train performance! Ha!
Again, dating myself but it’s okay… Those were good times with or without clothes!
Wishing –
I could get all of my shit done – also known as craft projects – so I can take a lit’l bit of a breather!
Eating – Low carbs and high protein.
Makes perfect sense to me.
Feeling – Like I could eat an entire chocolate cake. ALONE.
Enjoying – “Every breath I take… Every move I make…”
Needing – My hair, nails, and eyebrows done!
Drinking – Water. Lots n’ lots n’ LOTS of fucking water!!!
Loving – That the holidays are right around the corner.
I’ve tried to catch up with everyone. If I haven’t yet I’m on my way!

Been busy but managed to get a mini vacay in via ranch, dog, cat sitting.
It was heavenly. Seriously. Heavenly.

I always learn so many new things when I spend time with Miranda and her family…

Like ranch kids know exactly how far down to dig – with MAN size equipment – to bury a dead cow so “something” doesn’t come out and drag it off.
Miranda and the hubs and the 2 boys could host their own National Geographic show and never have to leave home! Not even kidding.
Okay, folks! Back at it! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful week with good vibes that carry into the weekend. I’ve missed you all but I’m back! I think…
MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY –
Be well.
