Pre-Holiday Weekend Bullets

  • I did not, in fact, quit blogging. But I have some serious writer’s block. Or its just depression. Staying home with nothing much to do sucks the life out of me.
  • I have had some bad car mojo and it seems to be contagious. I had the van fixed (it was the timing belt and it was over $600). The day after I picked it up, Bear’s car stopped working. Hers is the fuel pump. It will cost over $600 to fix, so that will have to wait. Then yesterday Nannygoat and the grandbabies were rear ended at a stop light and their car was pretty much crushed between and SUV and another vehicle. EVERYONE IS OKAY. So that is good. But Nanny only has the one car too (for her hubs to get to work and her to take Ladybug to PT and OT) and I think the car is a bit beyond repairing. She had liability only insurance so we have to hope the lady who plowed into her has good, fast insurance.
  • The boys men left yesterday for a MANONLY camping weekend. First time they have done this. I am not sure I trust Mr. Vixen, MacDougal, Lloyd and Sparkles alone together in a forest with fire and beer, but I suppose all I can do is cross my fingers.
  • All us girls are going to get together tonight to hang out GIRLSONLY style. But since we are old, married, poor folk with two small kids in tow, I imagine it won’t be nearly as exciting (or dangerous) as MANONLY camping.
  • A giant green worm thing attacked one of mah baybeeee tomato plants! Ate the entire thing in one day before I noticed. Needless to say, there are no more bugs of any kind in my yard now.
  • The rest of the garden is looking pretty good, so I will get some pictures this weekend to share.
  • Ladybug spent the night with Grama and Papa last weekend, so there will probably be pictures of that too.
  • I am working on some aprons too. Gotta get ’em done and posted.
  • Hope everyone has a wonderful, safe, and enjoyable Memorial weekend.

  3. I completely understand your frustrations! I’m dealing with unemployment also. Dear husband is gainfully employed, though his work is up and down along with his paychecks. Knock on wood, we don’t have the car issues, though we had a bout of flat tires due to pot holes and a new driver. Anyway, hang in there, we’ll get through this together! Blogger support! YEAH!

    A girls night only sounds like fun, hope you enjoy your weekend! Oh and good luck with the garden, we’ve been working on ours as well.

  5. I hate the hornworms! They are evil little scourges who can eat half a plant or in your case and entire plant in one sitting. AGGGHHHH!!! I scream like Lucy in Charlie Brown for you. I hope you ladies have a nice week end without the MEN.
