Raccoon Run

cute

My husband and I walk every morning at 4 am. Our neighbor man leaves food out for one eye Bob (a old raccoon) and the stray cats in the neighborhood so we have seen Bob multiple times and he is completely preoccupied with eating.

When I see a raccoon I think of this cute little furry animal.

My husband thinks rabid animal.

This morning as we are headed out the the street from our house we hear a noise and coming into our driveway is a raccoon, Oh my god I have never seen my husband move so fast he took off and was through the gate before I could move. He left me as raccoon bait, ha. I watched the little guy, he heads to the backyard and is gone. No injuries.

I at this point tell my husband that the threat is gone and he comes out of the gate and we head down the street. He spots 2 more raccoons and says oh hell no there’s a whole family we are not walking today and forces me go back in the house to get our exercise via you tube. I at this point am laughing so hard I can hardly speak and he keeps saying to me repeat after me, run means runs.

The adventures never end…..

Wedding decisions 

Ok I’m old and it has been 26 years since I got married in a 30 dollar dress from Macys. Today I an watching say yes to the dress on tlc and these brides take all their moms, friends, critics, etc. And they are spending thousands on a dress. The friends always have an opinion and don’t like what the bride picks, really?  If you are getting married everyone elses opinion does not matter, pick the dress you love even if you look a hot mess. 

I can tell you from experience the price of the dress has nothing to do with the marriage lasting, clearly by the divorce rate in the US. I love that you want to look beautiful on the big day but that 5 grand could be the down payment on a house or payoff a credit card or car loan making marriage a whole lot easier.

I know way to practical but real people have bills and the struggle for most of us is real. Stop letting your friends dictate your choices as most of them probably wont be around in 10 years anyway, real talk..
