Ladies telling me how to live my life and making happy plans.

Do you use a Mac? Once you go Mac, you never go back. My Mac laptop has a SIRI button right next to the delete button. I accidentally wake up SIRI several times a day because apparently I delete a lot. She asks what I need and I usually say: I was kidding. And she always responds with: I knew that.


My car has one of those cell phone charging beds in the arm rest. I generally leave my phone charging while going about my life. When I get home or wherever and put my car in park the lady who lives in my car dashboard always tells me in her nicest voice: Your cellular device is still in your vehicle.

Listen lady, I knew that….but really, deep inside, I forgot and I appreciate you helping me. Can we install something that will remind me to bring my shopping list to the grocery store. Or, to say, not forget a sleeping kid in the backseat? Not that I’ve forgotten a child in the car, but I know it happens.

Did I tell you there is gonna be a wedding?

I’m jazzed about it all.

Can we start using the phrase Jazzed more because I really like it.

Last week THE DRESS was purchased. And now, even more good news; after much hemming, hawing, whining and debating, a venue has been decided on. You do know, that I was doing the whining part. I’m a pro. And then, to keep the good momentum going *Cue dramatic wedding background music*: A date has been chosen.

Country dumpster fire be damned, we’re on a planning streak now.

Gosh, I wish The Office was still making new episodes.

Whatcha doing this fine weekend?

Lolo has a birthday next week and since her (online) class schedule is gonna be full, we’re going to get together sometime this weekend for dunch or linner. (early dinner? Late lunch? who knows, we’re wild and crazy lately)

That’s all the nonsense for me. Wishing everyone a great weekend doing whatever it is you do when I’m not around.


The one where nature made me ugly cry.

I started this post last week with some positivity and excitement in my heart.

A very happy and exciting event this (last) week was that I’ve been seeing my Polydamas flying around and I’ve got a boatload of babies on my Pipevine. Remember the last time I tried to video she/he, it didn’t pan out so well for me. I compared the butterfly to Sasquatch because I couldn’t verify she existed. But, on Sunday afternoon, I turned into an award wining cinematographer.

So, where’s my award? Kidding. Two showed up, surprised me and really made me look like I know what the heck I’m doing! Kids, dont’t try this at home, I am a trained professional.

That was last Sunday.

Yesterday, things were different.

–Insert Debbie Downer background music here–

Yesterday, I shed tears.

The polydama caterpillars ate every leaf.

I know. I know that’s what they’re supposed to do. And I’d hoped that I had enough vine for everyone at the table, but that didn’t happen.

Every piece of green on that vine was gone and there were still hungry caterpillars looking for food. The kitchen is closed…no food to be found. It hurts my heart seeing the hungry babies. *sigh*

There is no other food source for them and I tried to locate some Pipevine, but none of my local nurseries carry it.

I can’t even bare to go out there today and check on them.

I know the state of our world is a dumpster fire right now, but this, this is what was keeping me staying patially sane.

Yes, the plant will most likely grow back, but before it’s a full sized plant, the butterflies will most likely find it, lay a billion eggs and the vine won’t be able to support them all.

People keep telling me this is how nature works, but people, do you not realize I AM NATURE. OK, maybe I’M just TRYING TO CONTROL NATURE.

Ok. That’s enough of my pity party. I promise. Today is a new day let me see what other type of caterpillar I can starve.


I hope everyone had a pleasant July 4th. Our Callie is still recovering from all the freaking people who love to shoot fireworks; I need to get her some CBD or Vodka. Happy Independence day, let’s light things on fire! ‘Merica
