2020 thoughts

Let’s just be serious, 2020 has been a shit show. It has brought to light a lot of interesting things. 

  1. I tell my dog at least 150 times a day how much I love her
    1. This got me to thinking, I don’t even tell my husband I love him this much
    2. I think this is because he would not appreciate me saying; “I love you fat piggy” and rubbing his belly
  2. Since working from home for 7 months, most days I look like a 10-year-old boy
    1. My hair is super short and a baseball cap is my daily attire
    2. I do not put on any makeup
    3. Friday’s have become my day to get up and get dressed in something other than jammies or workout gear, I put on makeup and even lashes just so my husband knows he lives with a Woman
  3. The last 4 years in the United States have been ridiculous at best
    1. This is not based upon the political climate so don’t come at me sideways
    2. People have been given the go ahead to be openly racist
      1. I have never in my life seen such back-wood ignorance openly on public display
      2. I guess the positive of this is we now know for sure who is racist 
      3. The orange man who lives in Washington DC has encouraged this behavior (fact)
      4. I now more than ever am inspired to be part of the change 
        1. Equality, accountability, access to serves, equal pay, criminal justice reform, care, dignity, compassion and in general humanity for others 
    3. Innocent people or color are being killed with zero accountability
      1. I never thought in my lifetime I would see what my parents told me was allowed to occur in the 60’s but here it is in full color
      2. murder is murder no matter who committed the crime, police qualified immunity must be removed, prosecute  
    4. Covid (and the response to it), needless deaths 
      1. Had this been taken seriously by the leadership of this country this would have been under control by now
    5. The lack of empathy and care for others
      1. I have become much more patient and understand that none of us know another person’s journey so don’t judge what you aren’t living
    6. The deterioration of a moral compass
      1. My mom from a young age taught me to be honest and treat others as I would want to be treated, easy
  4. Smoking weed has increased by 9000 % I’m sure
    1. In the state I live in THC is legal and the dispensaries are packed
    2. If you have to stay home, I guess why not be high?
      1. I do not smoke weed but more power to my stoner friends and family
      2. There are certainly proven medicinal benefits to THC
        1. So spark up that blunt and have a great time but know that you reek

My issue is the smell, my sniffer is super sensitive and I can smell weed at 500 paces (can you say skunk)

  • Let’s be clear, This smell is not a pheromone 
  • I prefer to smell like Flower Bomb and YSL 
  1. Thank God we are not alive during Prohibition
    1. My budget for gas in the car has all but been eliminated 
    2. The budget for alcohol has increased by 100%

I took the batteries out of the clock because at this point is always 5 o’clock

Holy Menopause Weight Gain

  • My hormones have no idea what is going on
  • My waistline is not cute at this point
  • When you can’t button your pants, this is a problem
  • Hello work out pants
  • I joined weight watchers and am down 9.6 lbs as of today
  • Ugh side note alcohol is not helping with this situation

I took some before pictures, oh hell NO 

 

Family/Fun/Fashion

It’s a dogs life

How naïve I am, I was certain once my son’s had left the nest that my life would consist of the man (who I call Daddy (don’t judge) and I being able to just pack up on a whim and go, ugh WRONG. And yes I am referred to as Momma to my kids, dogs, and the man.

My little rescue dogs, Daisy and Peanut have put a kibosh on that idea. Daisy is a 12 year old dachshund/terrier with a whole lot of energy and no clue that she needs to not rip and run like she’s a puppy or her arthritis will flare up.

Peanut is a Pug/Chihuahua who is afraid of her own shadow (someone was mean to her) with a heart murmur and rotten teeth, can you imagine. She is the sweetest little girl but not very bright.

So this week Daisy has been running up and down the stairs like a racing dog and of course began limping on her right leg, so off to the vet for some anti-inflammatory meds and glucosamine, good lord. The huge glucosamine tabs I crush up and mix in with half an egg for her (so spoiled) twice a day. We were going to have peanuts teeth pulled but no Bueno because they can’t put her under due to her heart murmur so stinky breath will remain and I guess they will eventually fall out, yuck

We also travel to our youngest son’s college football games every weekend and thank god my oldest lives close or we would have doggy travel companions on every road trip. They love their boy sitter because he lets them sleep with him which is not allowed when we are home.

I have decided that I want a dog’s life. Let me eat, sleep, and have someone clean up my mess. If I don’t like you I can bark at you or pee on your leg and it is all good. Guess who’s who

summertime rambling

1. Why after 7 people have been attacked in the water by sharks in North Carolina would you be dumb enough to swim in that water, HELLO do you still not get it, sharks are in the water and they think you are a big sea lion
2. Is it really necessary to post every detail of your life on social media and ask stupid random questions just to get a response?
a. believe me no one cares where you are having dinner
b. I don’t give a rip about your random questions
c. stop fishing for compliments: oh you’re so beautiful, if he loves you he will step up, you should be more than friends, SHUT UP ALREADY we are adults (well sometimes)
3. Pot was just legalized in Oregon this week and is also legal in Washington State and Colorado. Here are some random thoughts and questions
a. Will crime now decrease because we will now have a whole gang of chill, relaxed folks?
b. Will fast food and grocery store profits increase because of increased munchies?
c. Does anyone really believe that now that weed is legal a whole bunch of people will run out and start smoking?
i. News flash I didn’t smoke before and I’m not gonna start now, duh…
d. Why in the hell did people in Oregon feel the need to gather on a bridge to celebrate?
e. Why does the news team covering the story ALWAYS interview the most nonintellectual dude in the group as a representation of all weed smokers?
i. interview the smart guy- not the one with no teeth wearing a tie dye skirt, good lord
f. If the government was smart they would see the trend and legalize it at the fed level, tax the hell out of it like they do cigarettes and get rid of our deficit, maybe I should run for office, ha
4. So its a few days before the 4th of July and I have to wonder how people who can’t afford food for their kids can afford to buy thousands of dollars in illegal fireworks. Jimmy has on shoes with holes in them but that mortar you set off sure was great.
a. It’s 100 degrees outside and the grass looks like hay in all areas so why would you set off fireworks and take the chance of setting EVERYTHING fire, including homes, this to me is ridiculous
b. Why is it necessary to set off mortars for 3 days after the 4th of July? Are you truly celebrating freedom? Do you even know what you are celebrating, just asking as my hunch is probably not.
c. I wonder if those people who set off the fireworks that sound like bombs have any idea what the impact is for the animals around them. I imagine they don’t care but for me it’s important to consider how scared most animals are (mine included) and do everything I can to not contribute to their trauma.
d. If I had my way, which means nothing, the only fireworks allowed would be snakes, smoke bombs and those little tanks and chickens that scoot on the ground, ha don’t have to worry about those getting away from you
5. Glamping fun- there is a place right outside of Dayton Oregon that we went to over the 4th this year where you can rent the funnest (I know not a word) vintage trailers that have been completely remodeled. It for sure could give me the I need a trailer bug but then I remember everything that comes along with owning a RV and all the costs for maintenance so if you all ever get the chance go visit The Vintages, so relaxing…. And everyone in a camp ground are always so friendly. This trip we were walking and saw some people from Idaho that our sons used to play with their kids when they were little, what are the chances..

6. Uber- my husband said he could never be an uber driver because he wouldn’t want anyone farting in his seats, ha I am still laughing 

7. Is it strange that my favorite color is brown? I just painted an accent wall in our bedroom and what color, yep brown gotta luv it
