Friday Ramblings

I fell head over heels in love with...
...this adorable vampire pig!  Unfortunately, my husband doesn't feel the same way.  Every time he walks past my vampire pig, he just shakes his head and sighs.  I have a thing with pig decor, so he's been shaking his head a lot throughout the years.  I added this vampire pig to my holiday decor about 5 years ago.  Ever since, he's been our little welcome to the Fall season since he comes out on the first day Autumn every year.

If you love this little vampire pig as much as I do, you can find him by clicking here.

I feel powerless because... poor baby boy has a virus with a fever.  Every time he coughs my heart breaks.  Although Nanny keeps telling me it's a fake cough for attention..

I feel really, really dumb when... six year old daughter gives me directions to places I go to often.

I feel even dumber when...
...I make a wrong turn with my GPS on and my six year old says "Mommy, where you going?"

I realized that...
...I'm really uncomfortable writing with a pen.  I know that sounds ridiculous, but I only use pencils or markers.  I wonder if that has some sort of hidden meaning?

I'm FREAKING OUT because... family and I will be boarding a plane in less than two weeks.  It's one thing to fly alone because I can medicate and panic in silence without worry.  It's another thing to fly with your babies next to you.  Please send good vibes and prayers our way for a safe trip there and back!!

I've replaced my red baseball cap with...
...a stylish fedora that I can't take off.  I've learned to protect my skin from the sun in my old age.  Not to mention, it was on clearance for $3!

I'm losing a war with...
...the vines that have taken over our flower beds!  We've cut then down, dug them out, and sprayed them with dangerous chemicals.  Despite our best efforts, the vine keeps returning with a vengeance.   These vines are about to choke out my beautiful cabbage roses and then I'm really going to cry!  Any tips on how to get rid of the ivy?

What are your Friday Ramblings?


  1. OMG what unearthly fugliness is that??? I only find ceramic coons cute, vampire pigs definitely not! I bet it scares the cats away!

    1. hahahahaha I guess that means you're on team hubby with the vampire pig? I won't tell him that though. :)

    2. I almost always support husbands, you women are crazy, God Help them all :)

    3. OMG I've just noticed a candle is roasting the pig's ass!

    4. Lol the vampire pig said he likes it because it keeps his tushy nice and warm!

  2. Vines may go all crazy movie villain and surround you in your sleep. Don't worry though, your vampire pig will save you lol That is rather sad that your 6 year old has better direction sense then you and the GPS. Hopefully the little guy kicks the germs soon. Maybe you need a pig pen, then you can write with it.

    1. The vine is a serious pain point! I wouldn't be surprised if it tried to suffocate me in my sleep. How does it survive several doses of round up, being cut down and smothered with dirt, and bleach?! It must be a supernatural vine out to get us.

      Does that mean you like or dislike the vampire pig?

      Mushy Face giving me directions makes me feel like an idiot. I needed a 7-Eleven and was about to ask Google where the nearest one was. She goes "Mommy, just listen to my directions" in the sassiest voice! I'm like, dude, you didn't get your sense of direction from me because I still use my GPS to get to my son's day care that I drive to almost every day.

    2. Vampire pig is fine by us.

      lol still using it to get there, sad, so sad.

  3. I drink just a little before I fly. It helps with the nerves.

    1. I drink and medicate... and I still feel like I’m going to have an anxiety attack!

  4. That pig is all kinds of awesome!
    I hope your boy feels better real soon.
    I usually have my 15 year old daughter navigate. I am really, really bad with directions.
    I am opposite and am uncomfortable using pencils. I like the flow of pens and really hate the scratchiness of pencils.
    Hope you have a good flight. I always sleep on the plane. Helps ward off my motion sickness.
    If you learn about a good ivy removal method, lmk. I am also losing the vine war here.

    1. I’m so happy you like my vampire pig!! I’m also glad that I’m not the only one so bad with directions. :)
      The vines may win... no one seems to know a secret weapon for them.

    2. It was so bad in London, my husband made me get in the back seat and had our oldest daughter do the navigation. Even with Google Maps in front of me, I still get all mixed up.

  5. "Every time he walks past my vampire pig, he just shakes his head and sighs." That's so funny. Sad... but funny!

    In your... old age... Really? That's funny too. Sad... but funny :D

    Hello Jax!

  6. Vampires is not at all like in the movies or books. Sure, I understand. You are young you have the whole world open to you. You can be anything that you choose if you apply yourself and try hard to work toward that goal. But being a Vampire is not what it seems like. It’s a life full of good, and amazing things. We are as human as you are.. It’s not what you are that counts, But how you choose to be. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity, I can help you solve any problem you are having
    (1) If you want your ex back.
    (2) If you want to stop having bad dreams.
    (3) You want to be promoted in your office.
    (4) You want women/men to run after you.
    (5) If you want a child.
    (6) You want to be rich.
    (7) You want to tie your husband/wife to be yours forever.
    (8) If you need financial assistance.
    (9) If you want to stop your divorce.
    (10 If you want to divorce your husband.
    (11) If you want your wishes to be granted.
