WTF Wednesday, What if you naturally fidget, then what?

What’s crack-a-lackin?  Only the best thing ever.  Will and Grace is coming back to TV.  I could just die.  I am probably far too excited for this but I just love this show.

And if Will and Grace wasn’t your thing, maybe Roseanne was.  It’s also coming back.  And the best part is, they’re bringing back the original Becky!

It was 96 degrees here yesterday.  I’m not sure if that was a record or anything for May but it was crazy hot.  I ran anyway because I’m crazy like that.  I didn’t run when it was 96 degree’s though.  I’m crazy, not stupid.  I don’t know how anyone can run when it’s anywhere near that temperature and the sun is beating down on you.  Not even dogs wanna run in that temperature!

Bitch, I said ain’t runnin!

When we were out on the boat over the weekend we were cruising past the Venetian walkway and it must have been around three in the afternoon and I looked over and saw a man and woman running out on the trail with no visible water on their person, none.  They looked to be running at a pretty good pace, if I had to guess I’d say at least an 8 minute mile, if not faster.


Maybe they were used to running in this weather but they should’ve had water.  Take a water bottle with you because the water fountains may not always work and an ounce of prevention goes a long way.

Am I the only person in the world who thinks fidget spinners are stupid?

I’m not changing my mind on this one.  These things are a colossal waste of time.  What if you’re a natural fidgeter?  If you have time to play with these things you need to get a job.  I don’t care if you ARE eight years old.

WTF it’s Wednesday!  Go drink some water and throw down the spinner.

WTF Wednesday with woody and a spoonbill crane

It is so hard to get anything done with a pecker in your lap.

Woody Allen Jac

They thought you meant something else!

Woody Allen Jac is gettin big!  He hangs out on my lap for a bit sometimes but mostly he stays in his cage because we try not to handle him too much.  Unfortunately he imprinted on me quite rapidly even though we tried really hard not to let it happen.

But it was impossible because this is totally me…

Snow White

We’ve had a bit of a drought here and because of the lack of water all kinds of wildlife has been making it’s way into our backyard to drink from the pond.  Recently we’ve had a pink spoonbill crane which we’ve never had before.

We’ve also had screech owls!  I didn’t get any photos of them because they only come out at night but they’re so cute.

Don’t worry, I haven’t kept any of them so far.

My Mom and Shakespeare left yesterday and I’m just catching up with work today so I really didn’t have a lot of time prepare a long post today but I wanted to share the photo of Woody with you and I also wanted to share this photo with you that I saw on Pinterest in the funny feed earlier in the week because it cracked me up.


Now, if that doesn’t make you laugh out loud, nothing will.

WTF, it’s Wednesday, laugh a little, the week is half over!

WTF Wednesday, Stress Kills and Florida Blue Steals

It’s been a little hectic and crazy over here but then, isn’t it always?  And as if we didn’t already have enough going on what with the two dogs and the rescue woodpecker, this guy showed up yesterday morning and tried to join the clan.


I relocated him back to the pond pronto.  I have no time for any more additions to the brood.  None.  The shop is closed.  Momma is tired and besides, there’s just not enough hours in the day for all the things on my calendar, it’s enough to drive a person insane.

Last Thursday I went in to see my doctor about the twitch in my eye that refuses to go away and my crazy low heart rate.  Even though I’ve been there before, with the way the healthcare system works these days, you have to check in with a concierge and then you go to the waiting room.  My appointment was scheduled for 1PM in the afternoon and I was told to arrive 15 minutes early for check in so I got there at 12:30 because I’m anal retentive and obsessive compulsive.

Apparently so is the rest of the world.

Doctors office

Is this the future of health care?  Because I felt like I was in the checkout line at the grocery store.  It was ridiculous.

I finally got to the waiting room of my doctors office at 1:05PM  at which time the attendant said to me, ‘oh, you’re a bit late.’

And if this situation wasn’t already messed up, guess who my insurance is?  Yeah, you guessed it.  Florida fucking Blue, because, Go me!   But I guess I should thank my lucky stars that I’m not Kristin Longberry because if they charged me $142,000 dollars a month for the shitty service I get, I’d probably have a heart attack for sure!

Anyway, I finally made it into to see my doctor and she looked at my eye and listened to my heart.  Yep, there’s definitely a twitch in my eye and yep, my heart rate is very low.  So, she referred me to a new cardiologist and gave me a prescription for xanax.  And then she told me not to stress out.  I just looked at her and said, ‘Do you have any idea who my insurance company is?’

Turns out she did not because the new cardiologist didn’t accept Florida Blue and she had to refer me to another one.


And that’s where I’m going this afternoon.  However, immediately thereafter, we’re headed to Nokomis and I’m taking a vacation.  Stress free.  STRESS.  FREE.  Just me, MacGyver, Mom, the Dogs and the Woodpecker…wait, did I say stress free?

WTF, it’s Wednesday!  Who’s your health insurance company and how much do you love them?
