Wine & Cheese ~ 73rd Serving

wine n cheeseWelcome to Wine & Cheese, my weekly, Wednesday whine session.

Every week on Wednesday I devote a blog to whining. Despite being a really happy, positive person, I do have things that annoy me at times.

I never let anything grate on my nerves for long but thought it would be fun to vent them periodically in my blogs.

I also feel that good things, the cheese in life, should be acknowledged as well.

WINE

😦  I want to whine about poop.  Not my poo, I am just fine, all regular and fluffy floaty like.  I want to complain about animal poop.  Specifically MY animal’s poo.

I have this dog, a cute, floppy eared, FAT Yorkie, named Penny.  She is 10 years old and about 4 pounds over weight.   She was my daughter’s side kick for her entire existence until this past June when she took up residence with me in the Knight’s palace.  I also have my cat, and one of my niece’s cats.  And also, a rescue kitten.  All the cats were rescues, and technically the pooch is too as she had to go live with someone other than my daughter.  4 critters = loads (as in many) of poo.

My cats.  They share a litter box even though I’ve read and been told that they each should have their own.  I’m unsure how you assign a cat to a particular box.  The kitten came with her own and the big cats immediately took to using her kitty commode.  I don’t buy into this each needs their own, I think it’s a scam to get cat owners to buy more crap catchers than they really need.  The cats scatter litter out on the floor of the bathroom in the lowest corner of the house.  Even the lidded boxes are no match for my little litter warriors.  So I finally ditched the lid, and everyone is using the same box.  Sort of.  One of the 3 seems to prefer going on the top edge of the box as opposed to IN the box.  One has taken to going on the floor about once a week.  I’m not sure if that is because there was a line and  wait at the potty and they couldn’t hold it or what.

My dog.  I grab a bag and paper towels, being a responsible pet owner, and when we walk I pick up the little bombs she likes to drop. In. Every. Yard. We. Pass.  REALLY? If I give her too much retractable leash that is exactly what she will attempt to do.  And last night, while taking a quick walk (we had to shorten it due to rain), she who had eaten cat food a few too many times behind my back, decided when I wouldn’t allow her to go in every single yard, she’d cop a squat in the middle of the street and drop her little poopoo land mine right there.  This would not be a major problem other than she looks dumb as a brick except that thanks to the cat food the dog has the trots.  As in runny poo.   SERIOUSLY DOG????? How the heck do you pick that up?  I had to kinda wipe and fake it cause there was NO getting that mess up.  Thankfully it was mostly dark already and not under a street light.

CHEESE

🙂  Mom had surgery for her cancer of the appendix (I know, we’d never heard of such a thing either but leave it to one of my family to get the quirkiest one we could find), and she is home already and doing great.  4th round with this so hopefully it takes a flipping hike because we’re all over this little issue, especially mom!

🙂  In cleaning out dad’s house for him to go into a nursing home I came across his old seminary stuff from high school, including letters he wrote home to his mom.  I cannot wait to find time to sit down and go through it all!

🙂  It’s Wednesday, half way to Friday.  THAT is something to be happy about.

🙂  My books are slowly yet steadily coming along.  I love it!!!!

🙂  and now, for dessert…fluffy floaties explained, in this all about poop edition of wine and cheese.

WINE

😦  Hey YOU!  Driving the BMW on 75N this morning in northern Kentucky, with JMORE on your plate.  Try that rear defrost option and clear that window off so next time you decide to squeeze into the high speed lane in front of me you can SEE that there wasn’t even assured cleared distance between me and the car I was following (I know that part is my fault) so there was no room for you, causing me to brake.  The semi behind me had to brake too and he was WAY the heck too close to my bumper.  Obviously driving a BMW doesn’t mean you have much gray matter in your skull.  Did you actually test for that driver’s license or find in a gumball machine?  Dorfwad!

😦  My doggie has mange.  SIGH…She is one hot little mess.  The poor baby.  I have some all natural, Neem items coming today from SwissJust that are excellent and made for treating head lice in humans.  I researched it a lot and found that this Neem is also recommended for treating mange without harsh chemicals.  Pray for Penny, she is miserable, I need this to work.

😦  For a brief moment this morning I thought perhaps the TV & cable at the office had putzed out on me.  It was on, then suddenly it went off, no power at all.  At first thinking it was a power outage, I noticed my fan was still on.  Hmmmm…I looked under the desk and saw that some how I had knocked the plug out of the power strip for the TV AND the cable box.  Go figure.  Of course the box goes through an entire re-boot cycle after the power returns. Grrrrrr.

CHEESE

🙂  The Restock Fairy was able to get even with the Knight for his failure to put a new roll of toilet paper on the roller when he used the last (see this confessional post if you don’t know to what I am referring).  I, in my tiara and wings, used the facilities in the master bath, and left an empty roll for him to find.  He was downstairs playing his drums and it was before dinner.  I knew at some point he would be the one to discover my dastardly deed if I could just hold out and not give in to my OCD desires to make that right.  FINALLY he started up the stairs and I waited to hear it….finally he called out for his Princess.  He came all the way downstairs, teasing me and laughing, to get me back up there to perform my superhero duties.  YAHOOO! WIN for me 🙂

🙂  It would seem I have another superhero power.  One so amazing that my wonderful Knight tells me he has extensively studied it.  Wow, must be utterly fascinating to him, right?  I snore!  Yes I do, I really snore!  Who knew it could actually be so outstanding that he studied it in depth!  He told me so!  He swears it doesn’t keep him awake, that he happens to be awake already when I snore, and that it isn’t so loud that it keeps him awake or anything.  Oh and with it comes the gift of falling asleep very quickly.  It seems I can break records for drifting off, and I’m always asleep before him, even when he is in bed and asleep before me, I beat him to dream land.  I don’t snore constant, per the snore student, no this master of the talent only does it periodically.  This despite nasal strips.  Guessing maybe I have issues?  Yes, I know, I DO have issues, but I meant with my nose and breathing.

🙂  Can you believe that my honey does not have a Snuggie??? Claims he wouldn’t be caught dead in one.  I, being a convert to the cult of Snuggie, am proud to say I own 3.  2 name brand, one spin-off.  He loves to snuggle, so he best be preparing to be caught curled up and breathing in one as we snuggle this winter.  I am sure I can find one that is printed for Michigan (his one and only fault – being a Wolverines fan).  Then I can have a 4th one, Ohio State, to sit on his lap when wearing it because Ohio State shall indeed crush Michigan this year, so the Buckeyes Snuggie needs to be on top of the Michigan one.  😉

😦  I really have only one whine today.  Yep just one, singular complaint.  I wish people driving around would come to realize that sunglasses are not a fashion accessory.  Sure, you can buy some really dazzling pairs and match them to your outfit, shoes or even your underpants.  But they are a NECESSITY when driving into the sunrise in the morning.  Because if you don’t have them on, you hit the brakes because you cannot see.  This causes the dreadful chain reaction of others hitting their brakes to avoid hitting you.  In some cases they are in the next lane and hit their brakes because they fear you might change lanes.  The guy driving in the lane next to that person and one or two cars back sees the brake lights and panics and hits his, unaware of why you two are braking but not wanting to be involved in whatever unseen danger is lurking feels he should join the little brake-light-engaged party.  Behind these folks others are forced to now brake and within seconds ya’ll have managed to bring hundreds and even thousands of cars on a major highway to a halt!

You sick, cheap-ass over achievers in stupidity need to exit the highway and go to any local gas station/stop-n-rob and buy some sunglasses.  Priced to move from $5-$55 you can get yourself some eye protection and get back on the road and join the ranks of those of us with brains who prepare for that big, bright orange ball in the sky each morning.

Meanwhile, I think the ‘high speed’, passing, far left lane should be reserved for those folks sporting protective eye-wear.  Those of us smart enough to actually be prepared for the morning blinded by the light arrival of sunshine should be rewarded for our choice to be ready for this event so WE can at least be moving!

Doesn’t matter if your choice of sunglasses makes you look like a super model, Lindsay Lohan after a serious bender, or those ‘birth control’ versions that will ensure you are unlikely to get laid anytime soon, just WEAR THEM!

CHEESE

🙂  I am in SUCH a great mood!  Mostly because I have opted to be.  My entire morning routine was messed up and out of sync and I just didn’t care.  I ROLLED with it!  I have no foundation on because I forgot to use it! WHO CARES! no one here warrants my concerns about how my face looks.  Music played in my head and I danced as I put on my face and then sang to the CD in my car all the way to work.  Off key and sounding like a buffalo caught in a trap I belted out several great songs all the way to work.

🙂  I have a wonderful man in my life!  We’re kinda like the Brady Bunch, but different!  He has 3 kids, just like Mike Brady, only one is a girl.  And he isn’t a gay actor portraying a straight man.  And we aren’t married.  I have moved in with my 3 babies.  All are girls, just like Carol Brady’s were, only mine are 4-legged furry types.  2 cats and one Yorkie dog.  And we don’t have a housekeeper/cook like Alice, so I’m not standing around snapping green beans, pretending to be cooking, while wearing a cute dress and pearls.  But that also means we don’t have the creeper butcher, Sam, dropping by to hit on our housekeeper.  But we’re a blended little bunch just like the Brady Bunch.  I LOVE my life, I’m happy.

🙂  I learned how to do a direct sales party online, so now I can do them for anyone across the country, expanding my client base.  That expands my income which hey, who can’t use a few more bucks?

😦  I really have NO tolerance for stupid drivers.  On the way in today, on the highway doing 70mph, I watched a semi barely avoid running into the rear end of a car in the lane 2 over from mine.  I have NO idea what the moron was doing, but he found himself on the tail end of the car in front of him and without looking swerved to his right barely missing the car as he shot into the other lane to his right.  Fortunately there was no one in that lane or he’d have caused a major accident.  Seriously people, put the damn cell phones down, books (yes I have seen people driving and reading books or newspapers!), makeup (really ladies, no one at the office needs to be that impressed that it’s worth risking your life and mine – paint the face at home or in the parking lot at the office) and just DRIVE!

😦  While I do love summer, not real fond of storms.  Severe ones could happen today, and I dislike that.  Yet we need that kind of weather here at work.  Severe storms mean lightening that causes house fires, and wind damage.  We get paid to fix the damage left behind.  We need it but I don’t have to like it.

😦  Missing my honey.  Long hours this week mean we see each other as we’re crawling into bed at night.  Though if I have to chose between times to be apart, I do prefer to sleep next to him at night, I feel much safer that way, than be alone over night.

CHEESE

🙂  Got to see some of the Tribe last night from the direct sales circles.  Love my gal-pals and it just motivated me all the more!  And I signed up for another direct sales business…jerky!  WOOHOO!  I couldn’t help it, $12 to start another business was too good to pass up and I know SO many folks that love good beef, buffalo and turkey jerky.  They even have jerky for cats and dogs.  LOVE it!  And yes, if you want to sign up under me, I’d love to have you in my downline, just go to my site and follow the links!

🙂  It’s COLD in this office and I am so happy about that.  No complaints, as outside it is SO humid.  I don’t mind, but as one of my favorite weather forecasters here in Cincy said, outside it is “air you can wear”.

🙂  I got my new jammies in my Avon order.  I know that is crazy, but I really do LOVE jammies.  Modest, fun lounge wear styles that I can sport while I take the dog out to pee without giving the old guy next door heart failure.  I may buy a second pair of these, they are so cute.  Coca-Cola ones from Avon.  They will be in an upcoming brochure for those wanting to buy some.  🙂

🙂  It’s dinner with the Divas today.  I enjoy my family and while I’m bummed that I cannot be there with my honey, it is nice to have my Diva time with my mom and sister.

😦  I have got to find a way to help Kentucky drivers realize that it is perfectly acceptable to do the speed limit.  I don’t mean exceeding the limit and speeding, I mean getting the vehicle up to that limit, achieve that which is posted!  10 mph under is just flat out uncalled for, really! Come on, give it a try, it’s liberating!

😦  I had the non-bucket list experience of being on the ferry during a severe thunderstorm.  I could see the sky was turning very dark grey, nearly black, as the storm was moving in, but I really did think that I’d be on the other side of the river in the blue grass state when it hit.  I was off just a bit in my estimation,  it hit just after the ferry had pulled away from the shore and was on it’s way.  Windy, the rain was coming down so hard you could barely see from one end of the ferry to the other (it only holds 3 rows of about 6 cars each to give you a feel for it’s size).  It rocked quite a bit too.  Being one that gets motion sick, this is not a real treat, especially combined with fear of water I cannot see the bottom.  I was pretty sure we were all going to die.  Obviously I was wrong.

😦  I often say in winter that I am NOT going to complain about the weather in summer, as there is nothing I hate like being cold.  But humidity is another issue.  I really do not mind high, hot temperatures one bit, but humidity so thick that you feel like you are walking through warm pudding sucks!  I am not happy.

😦  I am so tired of this hot flash crap that goes with menopause.  I swear my core body temperature is comparable to that of the surface of the sun.  The boyfriend found that highly amusing when I said it.  I did not find it amusing when he had set the A/C up higher one day.  70 degrees, my adorable Knight, no higher.  Even that is pushing it.

CHEESE

🙂  Every morning I get a sweet, sometimes funny, but full of love text from my Knight.  I lock them so they don’t get deleted and want to figure out how to save them to my computer.  I just love them.

🙂  Got my hair cut yesterday.  Not sure why, but that always makes me feel good!

🙂  Farts – they are funny!  Sure, they can be smelly, and even deadly.  The Knight claims to fart tulips.  Personally, I fart fairy dust, fun fairy dust.  The ex-hub used to discipline our kids if they broke wind around folks – do it in the bathroom or your bedroom.  Okay I’m big on being polite if you have to fart, walk away and let it go, then stand there a few so you don’t drag it back into the fold with you.  If you are in the store, with someone, be kind and send them away if you plan to crop dust the aisle.  Farting is funny but please, use some courtesy.  I am beginning to think my ex husband is such an uptight crab because he doesn’t blast one off more often and manage to find the humor in it.  A rather involved discussion of farting had me laughing so hard my sides hurt last night, thanks to some high fiber energy bars I purchased at the grocery store, and then dinner at Buffalo Wings.  I made the mistake of asking why the Knight’s meal was call The Triple Threat.  Seems it is a triple threat to one’s digestive pressure release valve.  The jokes continued and kept me up later than I wanted to be awake.  But laughter keeps us healthy!  The act of farting itself was NOT a part of the discussion.  I’m still laughing this  morning.

😦  The A/C at work is still not fixed.  Today it is beyond steamy in here and SO humid. I will need a shower before I can get within 20 feet of my Knight.

😦  I am not a fan of storms, and there is a chance of some strong ones tonight after midnight.  I’m not as bad as my sister, who literally gets under her bed during storms, but close.  But bad storms can equal some excellent contracts for us at work.  We live for fire, water and serious wind damage.  I’m so torn.

😦  Fruit flies suck.  Monday when I arrived at the office, I noticed a trash can that wasn’t emptied last week.  When I moved it, a swarm of fruit flies emerged. SIGH…2 days later they are mostly gone, except for a few rogue little fliers that are driving me bonkers.

CHEESE

🙂  I had such a busy, long day yesterday.  When I arrived home I was greeted with the most amazing smells.  The Knight had made breaded pork chops, mashed potatoes and a killer salad for dinner.  And it tasted equally wonderful, OMG was it good!!!!  I am so blessed to have been found by such a wonderful man.

🙂  I was a bit worried that all the great eating and ice cream at night was going to impact the scale, but nope!  While it is now creeping downward, it is still on the down so that is cool.

🙂  I am getting a dog!!!  Not only did The Knight allow my cats to join me when I moved in, but he is allowing me to take my daughter’s dog!  Adorable little Penny, the yorkie. She spent a weekend with us and his kids liked her too, so she is relocating to become a Kentucky girl like me!  Tell me this man is not amazing! He hasn’t even met my baby girl and is willing to have this doggie as a house mate.  Even her daddy, who adores his daughter, wasn’t willing to keep her precious pooch.  I just love this man!  Nothing short of wonderful!

🙂  I gave my Knight a special ring tone and text tone.  When my phone goes off with the alert of a text from him, I get all warm and fuzzy.  Waking in the night to discover him there, next to me, is just awesome.  Yeah, totally head-over-heels in love.  🙂  I am so blessed!

😦  S-I-G-H….I need brake fluid in my car.  This really is not a big hairy deal, I can do it myself.  It’s just the idea that I have one more thing I need to address today when I’m just not in the mood to add anything to my already overly busy day.  As one of my favorite, long ago Saturday Night Live characters, Roseanne Rosannadanna would say, “It just goes to show ya, it’s always something!”.

😦  I am sleepy for some reason that is beyond me.  Goodness knows I’ve had enough sleep the past 2 nights.  Guess I’m still catching up?  This yawning has to stop before something devastating happens like my mascara runs.

😦  My cat came up to the bedroom this morning after the Knight departed, crying her heart out for Noel, who stayed behind in the Diva Den.  Noel was like mama cat to her when she was a kitten, so she misses her a bunch.  That makes me sad, though I know she’ll get over it.  She has Ditzy to keep her company.

CHEESE

🙂  No better way to start the day than waking up next to my Knight, and starting out the day with laughter.  He makes my laugh every day, and that rocks.

🙂  Got to work on time thanks to creative dining!  I put my oatmeal in a tiny container and ate while I was driving to work.  Not to worry, finished before I got on the highway, then sipped coffee on the way in.

🙂  I have the office to myself today.  Can you say rocking it out to whatever I want to listen too?  At the moment I’m simply relishing the quiet!

🙂  Lunch = sushi!  Left over but still OH so good.

😦  Really?  Some douche canoes (aka crack heads) stole the compressor for our A/C at work last Friday evening.  It is going to be 88ish today, so that just stinks.  Thankfully the place next to us got it on security video and the local law enforcement folk were able to catch them.  It takes a special kind of stupid to do this under a camera that is catching you, your significant other, your car, your license plate AND the fact that you have your kids in the car.  The over achievers of dumb are now locked up and their kids are with child protective services.

😦  When loading up my car this morning with breakfast, laptop, water bottle, a change of clothes, etc. (you’d think I was going on a vacation rather than to work) I noticed that my one tire was very low.  This tested my good mood just a bit as I had to take a small detour to the gas station and check and fill all the tires.  I should be thankful that  this is yet another task that I can handle as a female, but darn it, I got my hands dirty!

😦  On the way into work  I heard that 75S was closed due to two tractor trailers doing a little late night mambo on the highway.  Seems it was so intense that they burst into flames.  Who knew that a truck waltz could get so hot?  As I anticipated, traffic on the north bound side had to creep past the carnage on the other side of the concrete barrier to play lookie-loo.  I was getting a tad irritated with the other drivers holding up my progress, then as I got closer I saw that one of the semi’s was a fully loaded Bud Light truck.  It was then I realized everyone was slowing down to pay respects.  A moment of silence should now be observed for this horrible, tragic end to all those innocent, un-enjoyed bottles of beer. *hangs head, closes eyes*

CHEESE

🙂  I am still smiling from my weekend with the boyfriend.  I feel like Maria, in The Sound Of Music, singing in the gazebo, “Somewhere in my youth, or childhood, I must have done something good.”  I’m almost afraid I’ll wake up and this will all be an awesome dream.  God brings about such amazing things in HIS time.

🙂  I’m smiling because I am headed to see him after work today too.  Not going to lie, this day is going to just drag past me because I cannot wait to get to him.

🙂  I am down 11 pounds!!  This of course just makes me so happy, as my choice of jeans for work grew by 3 pair.

🙂  It was brief but I was able to get a snuggle-hug from my snuggle-bug grandson last night, see my son, my daughter and my daughter-in-law and granddaughter.  Little things mean the world to me.

🙂  Waking up before the alarm this morning, snuggled in deep in my blankets, fan in the window keeping the room cool, birds chirping, and my first coherent thought being that someone loves me.  What a wonderful way to face the day.

😦  Really???? Chili cook offs in Farmville2?  Not like I have nothing better to do, with feeding a bazillion animals, raising crops and harvesting them before they wither in the fields, making things, and recently the addition of buffalo that I did NOT ask for, now I have to make chili?  What was I thinking letting myself get sucked into this game?

Every week on Wednesday I devote a blog to whining. Despite being a really happy, positive person, I do have things that annoy me at times.

I never let anything grate on my nerves for long but thought it would be fun to vent them periodically in my blogs.

I also feel that good things, the cheese in life, should be acknowledged as well.

I’m even going to throw in a bit of dessert, a piece of virtual chocolate, something that made me laugh or smile just a bit more than normal.

Sit back and join me now for the 63rd serving of some wine and cheese!

WINE

😦  I wish the weather would make up its mind and pick a side…Team Winter or Team Spring.  I think things are off by about 3 weeks here, and so when it would normally be WARM every day, we’re still getting a few chilly ones with frost warnings at night.  While I love the smell of a fire burning (in the fire place) I am over the cold.  My sinuses would probably throw a party.

😦  I love the smell of fresh cut grass, but my allergies are not at all impressed.  Yep I am a hot mess and keeping Kleenex in business.  Very sexy, I know, but then no one sneezes with quite the delicate charm as me.  Time to double up on the Zyrtek.

😦  I have nothing else to complain about.

CHEESE

🙂  A lack of things to complain about is a good thing!

🙂  The weather today is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G, warm and breezy, blue skies….heaven help me to come back to the office when I run out at lunch, as it is going to be a real temptation to keep on going!

🙂  I’m out in front on the Diva Den Biggest Loser contest, down 7 pounds as of yesterday and yes, I am gloating.  *princess waves*

🙂  I have stumbled upon the Court Jester, he is attractive and very amusing.  More to follow on that. *wink*

🙂  Yummy lunch today!  Subway 6 inch chicken teriyaki with cucumbers, spinach, black olives and onions.  No cheese, no sauce.  Baby angels dancing in my mouth!!

DESSERT
