Tuesday Tangents, man flu…oh boy

MacGyver woke up this morning feeling a little under the weather.  Well, actually, he came home yesterday feeling a little under the weather and continues to feel bad today.  It’s nothing major, he’s just a little run down and feels crappy but in man speak, he’s practically dying.

And I’m over here like,

Stay out of my space bitch

I was sitting here in my little bubble just minding my own business doing some data entry and watching the lovely Tom Payne on Kelly and Ryan.  I got up to go to the bathroom and came back literally 2 minutes later and the lovely Tom Payne had turned into a long bearded fat man with a bow and arrow in the middle of a field somewhere in the mid west.

What is this crap?  Why am I forced to watch hunting shows and gear heads all day?  I hope this is a one day thing or this illness of his may quickly turn fatal.

I went to the dollar store last night because well, I go there practically every day but that’s not the point, the point is I got the cutest little dish towel.

Who says you can’t find quality at the dollar tree, that right there is a gem.

It looks like we’re going to be spared from any major wind or rain from Hurricane Michael and I have to say, I’m extremely grateful.  There is nothing worse than picking up storm debris including trees that weigh a shit ton.  No thank you.

I am saying prayers for all of those who will be affected and I hope that if you are told to evacuate you’ll heed the warning and do so.  Things can be replaced but you only get one life so cherish it and get the hell out of dodge.

hurricane michael

The only good that has come from this hurricane is the temperature change.  It has been so much cooler the past few days.  I have been loving it.  I’ve even waited to run until quite a bit later in the morning and it wasn’t bad at all.  It’s still humid as all hell but it’s nicer.  I sure am looking forward to winter, all three days of it.

When you get sick are you a baby or a soldier?

WTF Wednesday, row, row, row with your mate….

I wonder if there are divorce statistics on Hurricane season anywhere.  During Irmageddon MacGyver and I had more rows than we’ve had in the last five years.  Seriously.  And they were stupid ones too.

Like whether or not he was only trying to save the items in the garage because he only cares about his tools and not our furniture and whether I was saving the garden gnomes because I actually like them or because they were outside and could actually become missiles during the storm.

So not kidding

No, really I wish I was kidding.  And that’s just one example, they got even stupider but I’d rather not embarrass myself further.

Both of us were exhausted.  Remember that we had to prepare for Irma which meant we had days of preparing the houses by storing and then boarding up everything, and then we had to deal with the stress of the hurricane itself, and then we had to deal with the aftermath.  Fortunately, Englewood had very little damage at all but Nokomis and Clearwater were littered with fallen trees and we had some fallen fence panels in Nokomis and since we’re selling it, that home took priority.

A shameless plug for my house for sale here….

The County is actually picking up all the debris.  All you have to do is drag it to the curb but we didn’t want potential home buyers to have to navigate around all of the debris that would surely have been stacked a mile high at the curb.  Also, there was  the issue of time since the county didn’t give a date as to when they would be picking the debris up, so instead we loaded the majority of the trunks of the trees in the bed of the pickup truck and made a few trips to the dump.  That’s why I now have nerve pain in my hand and arm, and MacGyver has back pain.

Yes, we're stupid

Yes, yes we are.

And that’s also why I’m talk typing and why my post is late because it took me 25 minutes to get the computer to recognize Irmageddon, which it didn’t, and I had to type it, and it hurt, and so I suffered for this post, but it was all for you.  Don’t worry though, I argued with the computer.

WTF, it’s Wednesday and it’s not the same when you argue with your computer because all caps doesn’t have the same effect!  Stupid Computer.
