Weekly Wrap-Up: The Rainy Itchy Edition

You can hear this being said in our house any time there's rain the forecast.  That and "Oh nooooo."

You can hear this being said in our house any time there’s rain the forecast. That and “Oh nooooo.”  Thank you Family Guy.

I for one am glad May is done!  I think we saw every type of weather imaginable last month.  Snow, cold, sweltering heat, torrential rain, severe thunderstorms, tornadoes.  The last week was particularly maddening with having to be stuck inside for an entire holiday weekend due to torrential rain.  Last year we had drought, this year we have flooding.  What gives?

Welcome To June.  So far I have been spending it trying not to itch my head.  Don’t worry, no head lice or anything like that here.  Just more complications from my ever lovely neck and head stuff that’s going on.  I won’t gross you out with the details…

I will, however, let you know what I did this week, just in case you were wondering.

Monday Memorial Day Oversharing  I was so tickled to participate in the Oversharing series at When Crazy Meets Exhaustion for many reasons, in particular I think Stephanie is the bomb and I got a day off!

Tuesday Twisted Mixtape Tuesday: Car Tunes  A list of what I belt out in the car, complete with videos.

Wednesday Wordless Wednesday: Wonder  One of my all time favorite pictures of my little girl.

Thursday  Lots of Pain, So Far No Gain  I thought I was so cool agreeing to co-host a blog hop with friends.  Apparently I do not know what to do to co-host a blog hop.  Neither do I know what to do about my pain…  Not that there isn’t always great stuff written for Theme Thursday, but this particular one had some very entertaining posts!  This week’s theme was what drives you crazy.

I was out of chocolate and I was miserable. Not a good combination, which added to the crazy. And this meme made me laugh.

Friday FTSF: Favorite 80s Movies  I was supposed to pick my favorite movie of all time.  No way I could choose.  My list was long, then I narrowed it down to a few of the best from the 80s.  I got such great feedback from this that I’m thinking about writing a sequel.

Stuff I Really Liked This Week

10 Bad Father’s Day Gifts for 2013Divine Secrets of a Domestic Diva She truly has the best gift lists!  I bet you can’t wait to run out and buy some bacon bedding!

I know there was other stuff that I really enjoyed, but this week has been such a blur that I can’t even remember what I had for breakfast this morning…

Best and Most Disturbing Search Terms

Naket Grils We don’t have none uh them naket ones.

Life is short naked-Short naked WHAT?  Tell me!  Don’t leave me in suspense!

Hypnotized pee pants giggle I really want to know what’s behind this one.

I wear glasses now So do I.  ????

Next Week

I start Physical Therapy, so hopefully I will be back to my somewhat amusing self in no time… I’m pledging the fifth for the most part on what I’m doing this next week, though I do solemnly swear that Friday will be my latest Secret Subject Swap post.  YIPPEE!

Maybe this is the type of exercise that will help me?

Spring: A Performance Review

From: The Management
To:  Spring
CC:  Mother Nature, Winter, Summer, Autumn

Dear Spring:

I would like to take some time to discuss your job performance beginning May 1st, 2013.

I woke up this morning, May 2nd, to this:

IMG_1809 I did some checking, and I was dismayed to see this:

Stupid weatherUpon further review, I then found this:

stupid weather 2Last year at this time your performance was much better.  As a matter of fact, you exceeded expectations.  You were superior in almost every way.  Here are two examples of things that we were doing last year at this time.

Picking weeds, um, flowers.

Picking weeds, um, flowers.

Your performance the last couple of days is simply unacceptable and fails to meet the minimum standards that we strive for. After much consideration, I’m putting you on probation for the remainder of your contract.  If you fail to meet expectations, I have no choice but to let you go.

So if I were you, I’d get to work…

Sincerely,

The Management

Now that I’ve got you all worried about what poor Spring’s fate will be, hop on over to Theme Thursday at Something Clever 2.0 and see what’s going on over there this week.  I am not participating today, but there are some other great bloggers who are!  Now I’m going to hide under my blankets all day as the snow shows no signs of letting up…

 

Wordless Wednesday: Snow, Snow, and MORE Snow!

IMG_1737

We are literally days away from Spring Break.  And?  We get a snow day.  Tons and tons of snow piled up on us.  This snow’s redeeming value is that it looked really neat the way it stuck to everything.  But come on Mother Nature, show us some signs of Spring!  Here I post this the day after I got stuck half in and half out of my driveway…
