It very peopley out there on Friday the 13th!

Happy Friday the 13th y’all!

13

That scene still freaks me out to this day, even though I totally know what’s coming, it still freaks my shit out!  Other than the movie, I like Friday the 13th.  Typically it’s a lucky day for me and so far this year, same.

I got this present in the mail yesterday.

I’ll tell you all about soon but I’m pretty excited about it, especially the coloring book. I mean, who doesn’t want a coloring book about marathon training, right?  Duh!

Also, we have a new bird on the pond.  I’m not sure if he’s decided to move in permanently but it’s been 3 weeks and he’s still here so I’m thinking he’s decided to call our pond his new digs and I am beyond excited because he is beautiful.

And if that weren’t enough to make me feel lucky, October and November are traditionally the season of community garage sales around here and today, THERE ARE TWO!  I don’t know how I will find the time to go to all of them but I must.

The only thing you have to remember is that when you go to a garage sale on Friday the 13th, you cannot second guess any purchase, you cannot!

WORD!

If garage sales aren’t your thing and you didn’t get presents in the mail, it’s still your lucky day because check out the best T shirt I have found yet for any introvert out there.

So as you can see Friday the 13th is a very, very lucky day.  And if you don’t believe me, ask Taylor Swift, she loves Friday the 13th. ………… See, I didn’t feel like I had enough content for you so I had to throw in some Taylor Swift, look what you made me do.

And with that, I’m out.  They pyrex is waiting people!

Happy Friday, 13th and all!  Is it lucky or not, what do you think?

What are your plans for this weekend?

Costumes are mandatory round these parts!

Halloween is fast approaching.  Last year, after Halloween was over Mom and I went to TJMaxx and they happened to be clearancing out all of their Halloween costumes for dogs.  I was beyond excited.  So I picked up a pig costume for Hank and another costume for Boomer though I can’t remember for the life of me what it was.

When we got to the checkout, the lady said that the pig costume was on clearance but not the other costume.  Because you know, dogs wear costumes all the time for like, no reason.  Whatever, crazy lady.

stupid people

So, I bought the pig costume only and figured I would deal with Boomers costume this year.  Anyway, I put the pig costume on Hank to try it out recently and let’s be honest, he hated it.

I would show you a picture of him in the costume but he would probably bite me.  The hate is real.  So I kept asking the dogs what kind of costumes do you want?  Just give me an idea.  Anything?  But they just kept staring outside at our pets.

I tried on some of their old costumes and they didn’t mind them but they didn’t get excited.  They just kept looking out the door and gazing off into the front lawn.  I was at a loss.  And then Charles P Cock came up to the door.

And it occurred to me that the answer was right in front of me.  They want to be one of the guys!

The dogs love their costumes.  (MacGyver might be a hard sell.)  We’re all gonna be peacocks this year.  Every damn one of us, even the woodpecker.

Happy Friday y’all!

Planking, Running, OMG, I can’t breath.

I have never been so happy to see Friday in my entire life.  I lie.  You know I say that every Friday right?

Because at the end of the week, this is me….

This morning I got up and did what I’ve been doing for about a week now, I planked.  Yeah, I’m up to 2 minutes now.  Go me.  It may not be much but I’ll take it.

Plank

Two of the longest minutes of my life…..

And then I went for a run.  Unfortunately, I only made it for 2 miles because for some reason I’ve got this nasty cough thing that’s been happening the last few nights and also for the past two morning when I’ve gone out for a run I’ve been really short of breath, like really bad.  ME!  I’m not out of shape y’all.  Something ain’t right with this picture.  By mile 2 I was a sweaty out of breath mess.

Proof

horrible out of breath feeling

What is that cowlick thing happening? I ran for 23 minutes and I literally could not breath!

Not pretty.

I might have to go see the doc this afternoon and check it out.  The last time I was feeling short of breath I blamed it on my thyroid and I actually had bronchitis.  I recently heard that people around here have been getting sick due to all the trees down and all the debris from the Hurricane.

There’s that and the fact that MacGyver and I dug a lot of nasty trees and shit out of our canal so God only knows what kind of bacteria and crap we came into contact with.  I mean, it’s true our house down in Nokomis is on the water and it is a nice area and all but the canal is brackish and as my brother describes it, it most closely resembles motor oil.

Brackish Water Canal

See? Motor oil!

So yeah, I probably have typhoid fever or Malaria.   Let’s hope not.

What are your plans for the weekend?  We’re taking down another tree because, well, I don’t know why, we just are.
