WTF Wednesday, I’ve got a craft room…but it’s not called that

I like to start my Wednesday’s with a nice and hearty argument with my insurance company, just for shits and giggles.  Nothing ever gets accomplished but I just can’t let them think I’ve forgotten that they’re screwing around with me.  No sir, not me, I remind them.  Every. Wednesday. Morning.

insurance is ridicSerious.

Anywho…it’s not all insurance sucks and I’m sick of it and sick and tired of feeling like crap around here.  No, we’ve been gettin some shit done.

Example one.  We finished our gym.

our gymAnd I say finished as in MacGyver finished because personally if it were my space and my space alone, I’d have some awesome wall treatments and the mossy oak wall board would disappeared.  But it IS technically his man cave so there’s that.

Speaking of which, I was really a bit tired of not having my own go to space and MacGyver has an entire freaking garage plus a few outbuildings so I convinced him to share some of the upstairs garage with me.  Y’all have no idea just how hard that was but he finally caved and I got myself what I like to call,

The Hormone Hut

the craft room It’s everything and more.  I haven’t completely moved in yet but that’s only because we don’t have wifi up there but it’s coming soon and who knows I might take up permanent residence in the Garage.

Over the weekend my sister in law and my niece and nephew came to town for spring break.  We got to spend a few days with them before they headed down to Englewood to see the grandparents.  Here are a few pics from our adventures.

I started walking this week and if all goes well I may be able to ease back into running next weekend.  I’m pretty excited about it and a bit nervous too.  I mean if it starts hurting again and I have to take more time off it will probably devastate me but I’ll deal with it.  I am antsy to get back out there though especially after watching the Boston Marathon on Monday.  It always motivates me.  It’s so inspiring.  Well there’s that and also I just ordered two new pairs of shoes, four new pairs of shorts an five new tanks in anticipation.  I might be a little excited….

Oh and WTF, here’s a random Squirrel pic for you…. just because:

sammy squirrelWhat’s the longest break from running you’ve ever had?

Do you have a craft room? 

Do you even craft?

Does anybody craft anymore?

WTF Wednesday, Mystery Solved

We live on a little pond.  It’s quite peaceful to go out and sit on the dock after a good workout.  And sometimes I like to go out there early in the evening and have a little glass of wine.   I love being outside in nature.

natureLast week I noticed fish bones on our dock that had been picked clean.  It was a little disturbing and I wondered if maybe a coyote or a vulture had been hanging out on the dock at night.  Or maybe someone snuck into our backyard and fished the pond while we were sleeping, cleaned the fish and then left.  I know, it’s a stretch, but that’s how my mind works.

I decided to hide out early in the morning before the sun came out to see if I could figure out what it was.  It took a couple of days but then…..I solved the mystery.

Ollie the Osprey I’ve named him Ollie.  Ollie the Osprey.  And so far that little punk has fished about 30 talapia out of the pond!  I’m not sure if he’s just hungry or trying to show us how a real fisherman does it.

WTF, it’s Wednesday and I do love nature.

WTF Wednesday, when your shopping plan fails, improvise with these gems

I was pretty proud of myself for getting all my shopping done over the weekend.  Every store that I shopped from had 2 day shipping or either promised delivery by Christmas.  I ordered items that would all be delivered before the 20th.  The only thing I had left to do as wait for it all to arrive.

But then the emails started coming, delayed shipping they said….

screamingAnd what kills me is one of those very websites is still promising two day shipping on a product that I ordered on the 15th which still hasn’t shipped.  LIARS!

If you’re dealing with issues like this and waiting for gifts that may or may not arrive, here are some alternative solutions that I came up with.

My first choice was this,

helmet head

Bringing whole new meaning to ‘helmet head’

Unfortunately, I have no idea where to order it but if you have more patience than me you could search the internet.  In the meantime, here are some things you can order.

ciastersHow’s that for a passive aggressive gift for the hubby?  You can order them here.

And because I have the sense of humor of a 12 year old boy,

poopSeriously, who doesn’t need this in their life?  This is the best thing ever.  You can order it here.

And lastly, for the man in your life who lives to fish and spends way too much time taking a poop in the morning.  Give him something to do:

WTF?  It’s Wednesday, and who says gifting can’t be fun?

What’s the weirdest gift you ever gave or got?
