Things I am Hating Right Now

To balance out yesterdays post about the things I am loving I'm going to share the things that are pissing me off. No none of it political. That could be a book.

Online Mean Girls. I belong to a bunch of crafting groups. This week someone made a post saying after all the hateful comments she received over a mug she made (for herself) that was misspelled she was giving up on her dream of selling  anything. She also added that she had dyslexia. Now I know its a good thing for someone to say "hey that's 'misspelled" but for 40+ people to say it over and over again and point out repeatedly that she'll never sale things with her attention to detail blah blah blah it gets annoying. Now I should add the cup was cute and the misspelling fit because it was a cup about day drinking. I think we need to go back to what southern mamas teach their kids. If you can't say something nice or constructive then don't say anything at all. I wrote her a nice note encouraging her. No way should she let others discourage her over something that insignificant. Hell just this evening I did a mock up of a shirt for someone. It was to say Blayden's #1 fan. I added an extra s. She noticed it said maybe just one s. We laughed and I took the extra s out.

Netflix Originals. Remember yesterday when I was saying how awesome Santa Clarita Diet is? Well it was awesome, and now I am left impatiently waiting for new season of that, Orange is the New Black, The Unbreakable Kimmie Schmidt, and there may be another I am forgetting about.  Come on Netflix don't only give us 10 small episodes and then make us wait a year. I'll pay a few dollars extra for my Netflix if you give me more episodes.

Time Warner/Spectrum every since the change I have had issues with my connection and some channels have such a signal interference its unwatchable.

Our local Guitar Store Emmy is learning the guitar. She doesn't want to be a singer that just sings. She wants to be a "real musician" I bought her an electric guitar. You should see my hallway when I get it done. We will have three guitars hung up as you walk down the hall. It is so much better than bulky cases everywhere. Anyway. I took the guitar to get tuned and restrung. The cost of restringing it was more than the strings themselves. Like double. I agreed to pay it, but that is my last time. I will be learning how to do this myself or better yet Emmy will be learning how to do this herself.  She has really surprised me with how much she has picked up already. Ok I guess this one is a positive and a negative.

Internet Guy Did I mention the guy that started messaging me and at one point asked me why I was so closed off and detached and appear to hate men? This is also the guys that is super into Walking Dead. Well tonight he asked me what has made me so hard. Then preceded to say all of this. I assume the SPECA is is talking about is the ASPCA. I could be wrong but the connotation would be right. I went off. I told him I couldn't talk to him anymore that we just disagreed too much. This is why I need to open a rescue. Which knowing me will probably be more like a sanctuary. I also want abandoned pigs. Did you know that they get turned into the shelters once they get big and aren't cute little pink piglets anymore? People market them as teacup pigs but that doesn't mean they are going to be teacup dog size. I can't have pigs where I live. No swine in city limits (even though I know some posing as humans)  You wanna know why I am so "hard" Because there are humans that don't think animals have feelings or personalities. That they think what can they do for me.


A few things I am loving

There are so many things I am absolutely loving right now. I want to share because I want you to enjoy them too. 

Cards Against Humanity. Its tag call itself a party game for horrible people. I learned about it during my going away party with my old company. You can order it from Amazon and I highly recommend that you do. Its fun. Each deck has black cards that have a partial phrase and white cards that have possible words to feel in the phrases. Its your job to make the funniest phrase with the cards you draw.  I hate card games and I LOVE this one. I have all the expansion packs except the last one.

Santa Clarita Diet. I may have binged what this over the weekend. Its a Netflix original. Which you know is awesome because Netflix is fantastic that way. It has Drew Barrymore and Ricardo Antonio Chavira (Carlos from Desperate Housewives)

Fresh Bread. I bought bread machine and have made a loaf every day. I found a recipe that is just like a kings Hawaiian roll. Now if I could just learn how to slice bread for Abbey's lunch, I'll never have to buy bread again.

Podcast We have finally started to hit a stride. We are getting an episode out a week and I think the quality is improving with every episode. Today's episode is Lovers Lane Murders. We also decided we needed an Instagram account so when we have a picture that ties to our story we have a place to share it. You can find us at haunted_family_podcast. 

Weather I am usually complaining about the cold and snow but our entire winter has been like fall or spring. I think I have only had a coat on a handful of times. Today I actually had my windows open. I hope this doesn't mean that summer will be hot. Kentucky is so humid. I can't stand being sweaty and sticky.

Speaking of Kentucky a few crazy things are happening here so be prepared for an update post later this week.


Super Bowl Weekend: A post barely about the Super Bowl

Not to keep talking about food but I have something odd that is happening and I wanted opinions.

So the longer I am single the more out of touch I am with others. At times I think I am coming off as hostile. Ok who am I kidding its not juts me that thinks this. This was brought to my attention this weekend when a guy that has been messaging me (see I don't even know if this means we are talking? I think probably not) He asked how my day was. Well this was my day....

I had an issue with someone complaining about this shirt. She was accusing me of not donating to the cause and profiting off the plight of others. First of all I am Lakota, those fighting are family.  Second of all, the listing says I am donating what does she want a screen shot of the donation made? Third of all, Heather came up with the design and I just made it happen. To top it off she didn't even buy the shirt just wanting to complain. Fourth of all she was complaining on a fb group my sister belongs to and she had me blocked so I couldn't defend myself. Thankfully Heather and Hannah handled her. All of this drama came about because she told Heather (on their mutual group) that she was a botanist but Heather corrected her on asparagus. Yes this insanity was because she was trying to say she was a botanist but thought there was only one specie of asparagus. This embarrassed her and she went off. No clue why she chose me. I don't even care about asparagus. Although sugar snap peas is another story. I could eat them by the bucket load.

Same day. I dropped Emmy off at her friends house. They just moved here about 2 years ago from Russia. We had a little language barrier. It was kinda comical. Super sweet people though and Emmy had fun and their daughter is precious.

Also same day, I came home to see two girls having a lovers quarrel in the ditch beside my house. One was sitting in the ditch (basically in my yard) and the other was standing over her yelling, spitting, and waving her arms. Then spitter stomped off and ditch girl got up crying and ran after her. I really wanted to shout as I got out of my car to just let her go that spitting is nasty. 

 So I told him all of that and he asked if I was ok. I was confused and asked why I wouldn't be ok. Its not like I got spit on. Also every evening I get asked what we had for dinner. I have no idea why this question makes me feel like I am standing in front of the class unprepared with no pants on. I mean how hard is it to say, we all ate cereal with a side of ice cream?

Now add to this He was talking about The Walking Dead, which I have never been able to get into. I tried considering the creator is from Kentucky. Anyway, this conversation happened.

So people who are not socially awkward and may possibly spend super bowl with people instead of cute furbabies like this......Am I being insane? Or as he said defensive and closed off.
Also isn't my super bowl date a cutie? Sadly his owners love him and I didn't get to steal him.


Final Whole 30

Oh hi there. I must have dropped off the face of the earth for awhile. But I appear to be back. Here is a story that may illustrate my current mental state.

Yesterday, Emmy and I were running to the grocery store. A store that is on the same road as my house and maybe 2 miles away. 3 at the very most. So we pull out and pass the place. I realize it about a half a mile later. So we turn around and pass it again, another half mile later. So we turn around yet again. Finally we made it to the grocery store. All the while Emmy isn't saying anything she is just watching me drive up and down the road.

I walk into rooms and forget what I am doing, I forget names that I should know. Today I got asked a super easy work related question and could not think of the answer. I think I need a mental break.

So you know I was doing the Whole 30 diet. It was hard. I had some crazy cravings for stuff I'd never even want under normal circumstances. Which makes me think its probably not super healthy and I doubt I will be doing it again. I think it is just too restrictive. Plus the kids are busy with all their stuff and I am doing two regions of work (temporarily) Its just not the best time to be adding anything.

So I spent a lot of time thinking about food, shopping for food, dreaming of food. One day I stumbled on these. I will go right ahead and tell you I didn't buy them or try them. They may be delicious. But, they looked like a cross between plastic play food and vomit so I just couldn't bring myself to buy them. But I wanted to share them with you in case you are in the market for plastic puke that may or may not taste great.
