Thursday things Organizing and the Eggcorsist.

Over the weekend MacGyver and I went to a few neighborhood garage sales because that’s just what we do.  Anyways, we came upon this lady just standing in the street holding a baby and looking quite perplexed.  At first I was a little worried about her but then when I asked her if she was okay, she said that she was and that she was just confused.  I asked her why and she just pointed an said she had no idea how to pose her Granddaughter.

That was the point I looked over and saw the scariest lawn of my life.

Disturbing!

Somebunny threw up Easter eggs all over the yard!  What the Hell happened?  They need an Eggcorsist.  I mean seriously, who decorates like that?  It was crazy.  They had thousands of eggs everywhere and at least 10 blown up bunnies and super sized eggs.  It scared me.

When we got in the car and drove off MacGyver said I’m glad you only decorate like that at Christmas.

What?  I do no such thing!

And then MacGyver said that six Christmas trees and 10,000 twinkle lights may just be a bit over the top and that’s all he was saying but for the record, I don’t go all that crazy at Christmas time and I hardly decorate at all for any other holidays so there!

Anywho….

Have you been buying a ton of Easter candy?  Surprisingly I’ve been really good this year.  I’ve only purchased Reeses peanut butter eggs but that’s a staple.   MacGyver asked me to get Peeps one day but I refused.

Don’t be a Monster!

In honor of Easter and sibling’s day which was Monday and my recent trip to Tennessee and one of my favorite things, bunny ears, here’s a couple of pictures from my Tennessee trip.  (Happy sibling’s day to my brother too!)

Me and Angie

MacGyver took this picture and I had no idea that my sister was doing this.

He immediately took a second picture.

And she had no idea that I was doing this, but isn’t it funny how sisters think alike.

Before we went to Tennessee MacGyver and I bought new flooring for our Den/Tv/Theatre/hangout room.  Currently it has some stanky green carpet, and I hate it.  The dogs love it, hence the reason I hate it.  It collects dog hair and it smells.  I am constantly cleaning it and it consumes far too much of my time.

In fact in keeping with same theme I’ve been purging many things in my house that take up too much time, i.e. dust bunny nic knacks, and my mom is coming to town soon and we’ll be having a major garage sale.  Somebody is going to make out like a bandit because I’m getting too damn lazy to clean.  The man cave is chock full of my shit.

Last night I had to clean out the den so we could begin the task of replacing the flooring which meant I had to clean out my she shed to have a place to store stuff.  That’s when I located some things I didn’t know I had, Easter decorations, and I hauled them straight up to the garage sale pile.

Easter Decorations

And then I turned around and came right back downstairs because there was no room.  I’ll put them up for sale right after Easter.  Or after I finish the 12 step in Over Decorators Anonymous.

Do you tend to overdecorate?

Are you an Oganizer or Unorganized?

Thank God it’s Thursday

Life gets crazy around here sometimes.  So crazy that I don’t even have time to write on my favorite day of the week and my wtf Wednesday post gets postponed to Thank God it’s Thursday and for the record, I am.

Not to bitch or anything but I’ve spent about 9 weeks working on a project that really should have been finished weeks ago but I’ve spent the last week redesigning the home page because someone can’t decide what word to use in the damn tagline.  It doesn’t sound so bad until you realize that I’ve redesigned it 53 times!  Fifty.  Three.

kill me

Half the people I’ve ever known decided to call me yesterday….WHILE I WAS ON A CONFERENCE  CALL!

And when I didn’t answer, half of them decided it would be a good idea to text me.

I really hope I make it to the airport with at least one matching outfit or at least two matching pairs of shoes.

And now for the conundrum, I just found out that the Knoxville Marathon is the day after the wedding and it’s also the only day that I have to spend with my sister other than wedding day stuff.  I hadn’t planned on running but I’ve never run the Knoxville Marathon and it’s my hometown……my soles are burning…

The Happiest and the Fattest

WalletHub just released their findings of the 100 fattest cities in America.  The top 20 are all in the South!  Actually, 24 out of the top 25 cities are in the South and that’s just disgusting.

The winner of the fattest city in America is Jackson, Mississippi and the state that came in at the bottom of the list is Seattle/Tacoma/Bellevue, Washington.

Recent findings from the article

If you want to read the entire article, you can read it here.  It’s very interesting.

WalletHub also did a study on the happiest places to live and I compared the two to see if weight had anything to do with the results.  You’ll have to see for yourself but the suicide rate was alarming.

I wish they would have included weather in the study because I think weather could be a factor as well, don’t you?

Go read those two articles, seriously.  Good stuff and full of information.  Of course maybe it’s just me because I love all things statistical but I was entertained for at least an hour this morning.

What do you think is one of the biggest reasons Americans are so overweight?  I’m not going to win any popularity points for this one but I’m gonna go ahead and say it, we’re lazy and a lot of us eat shitty.
