Shooting Hot Ones…March Cookie Madness


Yes! I DID hide the Girl Scout cookies, okay?! I will admit it. I bought them for me, and you said you didn’t want that kind anyway. “Eww, why didn’t you get the Samoas???” you said…… Wait…so, if you don’t like the kind I got, then why would you start eating them up so fast? There’s only like 4 rows of 5 cookies! So they’ve been taken care of LOL Stop looking for them. Hahahahaaaaaaaaa!

God Hates Fags Protest of a Protest

Dear Readers,

Okay, so a couple good friends of mine from church informed me (via facebook) of some rumors about a church in my city, sister church of the Westboro Baptist Church, planning on protesting a local fallen solider’s funeral today, Sgt. David Chambers. I wanted to go there to be a part of the coming together of a human chain around the family to shadow them from the group during the funeral and graveside service. This would’ve been my first personal experience with a hateful group such as this.

By the grace of God, the group did not show up near the funeral sites on this date. But other groups really do show up and protest funerals across the U.S.! Protesting the very people that have fought and died for their inherent right to have a protest. I was choked up and outright disgusted at the thought of anyone actually going through such lengths to get the hateful message across. How especially disrespectful to do that at a funeral. I’m glad I did not get to see that today.

Today the family and funeral attendees only saw a large number of supporters as the funeral line arrived at the church and proceeded to the burial site. Many expressed their gratitude for us being there. Veterans, soldiers, civilians, & children lined the sidewalk with flags in hand, “God Bless America” signs, hands over heart, and hats off to Sgt. David Chambers, one of many who have died serving this country for us to have the freedoms we enjoy everyday.

Pets Outside of Wedlock…

Okay…

I’ll be the first to admit, we’ve done things out of order… before we were married having 4 “kids” and all….. BUT we wouldn’t have had it any other way. LOL We got to experience the joys of pet-parenthood before we actually made a permanent commitment to each other. So now we reveal… this little known fact about us… this dirty little secret of sorts… to the world!…….we have had hermit crabs for 3 years!!!

Yes, hermit crabs.

We’d pass the 10 gallon tank back and forth every month or so. Well, Thomas did keep them when I (Stacey) lived farther away- but they all stayed alive somehow when they were living with him alone! LOL We started off with 2, then grew to 3 and 4. We have a 30-gal tank now that we are married and live together…So we can accommodate 4… But unfortunately right before the Christmas season, we lost one to natural causes. *Sad time*…Well now, Let me introduce you guys!…

The Yellow Jackets Are Coming!!! The Yellow Jackets Are Coming!!!

So here we are yesterday at January 6, 2013 (it’s been winter for a while) and it happens again… I’m in the extra room relaxing (I have strep throat right now) and BAM! a yellow jacket dives off the ceiling out of no where in my direction! I shriek as loud as possible and get Thomas. This is supposed to be over……..

So, our apartment was taken over by bees… well… yellow jackets… this past Fall. *Cue Nikki Minaj’s “Beez In The Trap” song instrumental*

This is something to tell our kids, ha. I mean really, yellow jackets? It was like a horror story every night. Can you imagine??? I mean yellow jackets in the most intimate parts of our home…. at the most intimate times….”Hey babe, is that an earplug in the bed OR A YELLOW JACKET!?!?! AHHH!!!”, sitting on the toilet, *buzzz* “IS THAT A YELLOW JACKET?!!?! AHHH!!” , chillin watching TV- yellow jackets swooping down from the ceiling unannounced!! Ridiculous!

We were lucky to not get stung though. Probably, hundreds got inside our place. We isolated it to the bathroom finally. So we basically barricaded the door, sacrificed a bathroom for months (we have two).  The bee-guy finally came, late as fire, and told us that they were coming in through a tiny crack in the window that maintenance claimed they sealed for us already weeks ago (they really sealed our window shut, not the crack on the side). -_-

I figured they all died for the winter at this point. And the pictures and video we do have is not even the worst of it. So, we cleaned up every one of the bees and for now we have our bathroom back, but we don’t know if they’ll be back next Spring………………the Queen may still live within these walls……………………

Obviously, at least one big worker-one has survived thus far into yesterday. Freak occurrence?

Shooting Hot Ones! [2 December Quotes]

A couple funny things we’ve said to each other last month to recap lol….

——————————————————————————————————-

1) (Stacey comes home with groceries, Thomas playing video games. 10-15 minutes later…)

Thomas: “Yes!!! There’s food!” And begins looking through the cabinets and the fridge.

Stacey: “Hey Thomas, you know you can get groceries too, they don’t just show up at the house…”

2) (After Stacey explaining clearly to Thomas the wonders of her PMS schedule for the first time)
Thomas: “That’s why I love you. I love it around here! You make things so exciting!”
