Molly, a.k.a. "killer", a.k.a. "47", a.k.a. "Molls", a.k.a. "Cat"

The view that I have from my driveway. This is my neighbors house. If you remember my last post, you know what I'm talking about.
Hard to see, but the point is actually the top of the blow-up nativity scene that is bending over.

Front view of the Nativity scene.

Close-up of the blow-up disaster. Notice Molly in front. She's always involved in whatever we are doing. She was hiding behind the decorations to try and sniper the dog as he came by.

My neighbor's house from the road. Don't worry, they were at church praying for me. lol

Catching Up

Well, I've had a lot going on lately. This blog is going to be a bunch of random things and I'll probably still leave things out. ; )

  • Whoever invented the inflatable Christmas decorations is rich! My neighborhood has suddenly become invaded with air-filled santas, snow globes, and bears. This would be okay if people decorated in moderation, but that does not happen in my neighborhood. The "church" neighbors have so much crap in their yard. They have the 4' snowglobe that has an 8' santa and a bear attached to it. (remember they are inflated) They also have a leaning blow-up nativity scene. It looks like it is about to do a nose dive into their front lawn. This could be okay, but the blow-ups are separated by lighted trees and reindeer. It's bad, really bad. Did I mention that the inflatable objects create a good bit of sound?
  • I don't know if I am mentioned this, but we have nicknames for our neighbors. The TV people (watch tv in their garage), The church people, The fat people, The foreigner, and many of our neighbors are lovingly referred to as the dirtballs. Well, one of the dirtballs lost their house today. Hubby was outside hanging Christmas lights and heard sirens. He turned around and saw smoke billowing out of their roof. I feel bad for them. It's never a good time to lose your home, but especially around the holidays. Luckily, no one was home and the puppies made it out okay. We drove by and the entire place appears to be gutted.
  • Had my favorite for dinner, El Patron. No Tecate for me tonight. I'm not feeling all that well. I've been fighting a cold for about a week. I notice that I tend to feel worse on days that I don't drink. hmm...that could be a science project. Does drinking mask the symptoms of a cold or does it heal the symptoms? lol I'll start drinking again tomorrow and see what happens. Stef, he grabbed my ass on the third step from the top. Just in case you were wondering.
  • BACHELOR PARTY!!! Is it okay for guys to go out, get drunk and look at boobies? Maybe it's the redneck in my but my answer is "hell, yeah!" (cue Gretchen Wilson) Bubba's bachelor party was last night. I guess they had a good time, hubby rolled in around 3 AM. But, my sil-to-be is pissed off. I really wish she would just get over it. My brother was in desperate need of a night out. He's a good guy. Cut him some slack! I don't think she's been in a strip club. If she would go, she would feel better. Most strippers aren't anything to look at and they only want the money. She'll get over it OR she won't get married next week. Still love her, just love my brother more. : )
  • My brother's bestman is also one of my ex-boyfriends. So at the bachelor party last night he (the ex) kept telling hubby how glad he is that they can get along. Not really sure what all that was about since there was a good year in between them. But that tells me he was good and drunk. He's usually a happy drunk. My response to this story was, well not something you want to hear about it.
  • The less than a brother will be (gulp) married!!! I really am okay with it now. I guess it's because I don't have time to not be okay with it. I spent ALL day with my mother today. We started the morning with coffee around 9:30. I didn't get home until around 6. We worked on things for Lucky and Baby Ryan. We then started setting up for our "party" on Friday night. We picked up tables, put out chairs, ironed tablecloths, tied ribbons on minature Godiva liquer bottles. Whew! I'm worn out. I guess it is just a preview of what the weekend is going to bring. But, I'm off work on Friday and I'm going to get a manicure/pedicure to give myself some pampering. I really need a massage, but that's going to have to wait.
  • Would it be weird for me to take a vacation by myself? I would love to just go away for a weekend and not have anything or anyone to worry about. I got a glimpse of this when I went to Nashville for the weekend. It was nice to do my own thing and not worry about what anyone else wanted or didn't want to do.
  • AND last but not least...Friday night...We went out with my boyfriend and the marine. We met at the Saucer and I managed to talk some guys out of their table. (I'm good like that.) By the end of the night, my Woody came up to meet us. We also ran into a friend of mine from high school with one of her friends. She sat with us and we played a bar game called Kill, Marry, Fuck. I'd never heard of it, but I'm a little out of the loop on drinking games. It made for a very interesting evening. I haven't spoken with everyone yet, so I really hope that everyone made it home safe and sound. My boyfriend is now married. I'm sure you remember the Detroit wedding. He hasn't changed a bit. He is the same crazy guy he's always been. Thank goodness b/c I was truly worried about him.
  • Finally just want to send a shout out to my girl. Send me an email with your phone # and I'll send you that pic. And a shout out to my lurkers. Have a great evening!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and was able to reflect on what they are thankful for.

I am thankful for so much. I am thankful that I still have a job when in the past few years, so many have been laid off. I am thankful for my family. They are wonderful and supportive. I am thankful for my friends. They are my extended family and support me. I am thankful for little Ryan that is still "baking" in Lucky's tummy. I am thankful to have a roof over my head, clothes on my back, and food in my stomach. I am thankful to be an American where I have freedom and rights. I am thankful to be a woman.
