Groundhog Day

So, I was sitting here writing my PostADay, just minding my own business, typing away, than my dogs outside start barking like mad dogs, my daughter is screaming at the window yelling at me, “WHATS THAT MOMMY!!!”

I drop what I do and I scoot on over to the window, look outside and there is an animal in my yard! This thing is chasing my cats, WHAT IN THE WORLD! I grab my camera and just wonder myself right on the porch. I watch him for a second, then realize there is a beaver in my yard!

I take the camera back in the house, grab my phone, my heart is racing through the roof, my hands are shaking, and I start calling Lisa! I am like panicking.

Lisa, “Get the water hose and squirt him!”
Me, “Lisa, I am NOT getting off this porch!”
Lisa is laughing
I start laughing
~The groundhog runs after the cat~
~I scream~ “OMGGGG!!!! He is chasing my cat!”
Me: “Lisa, WHAT AM I GOING TO DOOOOO!!??”
Lisa: “GET THE WATER HOSE AND SPRAY HIM!”
~Watching the little bugger, he is only about 5ft away from me, the water hose is like 15 ft away from me~
At this point the groundhog is walking around my flowers, and I walk to the edge of the porch~
Me, “Heyyyyy lil creature.”
~Groundhog walks closer to me~
Now lil stunt guy is beside the house, about 3 ft from me.
Me: “Lisa, I think it is going to go under the house!”
Lisa, “Well, Tell Savoy when he gets home.”

My cat doesn’t know what to think! (Either did I)
Around this tree is my next project 🙂 Another flower bed!

Well, I eventually called Hubby and well, he didn’t seem as surprised as me. I now have a groundhog under my house 😮 A groundhog that doesn’t seem to like my cats.

I had this post already in my draft box yesterday. It got so busy around the house that I didn’t have time to post 😦 I, however, thought the groundhog to be a beaver instead. It sure looked close to a beaver, and plus I have never seen a groundhog! ha! Yeah, hubby was amazed I have been sheltered from such.

A Date Night

Hubby and I ventured out yesterday (Friday). Before we went out I was working in my yard. Hubby kept telling me I need to hurry we have bad weather coming through. Well, BLAH! I wanted to get all this done, since I have more of my flowerbeds done, now I just need to get to weeding out grass. While I was planting some more monkey grass, hubby was helping with making the holes bigger, and dividing it up so I can just place it in the hole and cover it up. I got halfway done with my 22 holes and it starts thundering, the more times it thunders, the closer it gets. I was hurrying up, throwing the grass in the hole, getting dirt and placing it in there. I don’t think I have moved that fast in a long time. When I went to stand up, it felt like I was going to fall over. I don’t guess you need to be leaning over for too long, ha!
Anyway, we got half of them in Hubby ran Jade in, gave her a bath. As I walked to the house I could feel my phone falling from my boobs. UGH! My hands where full, a drink, wow I can’t even remember everything I had, hahaha! Yeah, so I stopped in the hallway and told hubby to save my phone. (I forgot I put my phone between my boobs). Hubby starts joking around about it and tossed my phone in his chair and took back off to help Jade in the tub. I got me something to eat (since I didn’t eat breakfast and I took my diet pill, not a good combo), filled up my drink, grabbed my phone and went outside to wait for them to get out of the bathroom so I can get my shower and get ready to go to the movies.
As I sat outside I looked at my phone, tried to turn it on, because it often just goes off by itself. I had no luck getting it to turn on. At this point I feel like everything isn’t going right. My phone is being stupid, my flowers are not all planted, and I still have to get a shower before the storm moves in. I watch the clouds and try to fix my phone, taking it apart, putting it back together, beating it, lol! I finally stood up to take it to hubby. While I stood up, the chair I was sitting in fell off the porch, due to a little gust of wind and my legs pushed it back since I stepped back before going forward.
I gave my phone to my hubby and he put my sim card in his phone, handed me his phone and tried to fix my phone. (No Luck with my phone, Hubby says it has gone loopy! and for good this time) Sigh.
I finally get a shower, get out. I don’t even flat iron my hair. As I was drying my hair the storm started. You could hear the wind howling, lightning popping and the thunder rolling. I got half of my hair dried when I went to look out the living room window, right in time to see the lightning hit in the yard. It was a nasty storm, you can see pictures of what it did to Life’s Little Slices garden since she just lives 5 miles from me.
We get to Lisa’s house; leave Jade and head on our way to see X-men. I have to say I liked the movie. It brought everything together from the other movies. Some parts were corny, but what movie now-a-days doesn’t have corny crap in it? It was definitely a lot of action, and it was really worth it for me. After the movie I ask hubby where were going to eat, and he takes me McDonald’s, so I super size it, LOL! JK!! He did take me to McDonald’s though.  Not much on my diet, but I did only eat half of the burger, and half of the fries. 🙂 So, I did pretty good.
How was your Friday or your week?

Hear It Often

Day 17: A song that you hear often on the radio

You ever turn on the radio and just started singing. You already know the song, know all the lyrics, then within 15 minutes they are playing it again! Like seriously, there is not enough songs in the world that you have to play this song again. They can’t wait another hour, or 2 hours. They play it just 15 minutes after playing it. That is awesome isn’t it?

Five Question Friday

1. What is your favorite summer time activity?
I love spending time with family/friends, grilling out, swimming, and just having fun, and of course, reading 🙂
I really like big gatherings, music blaring from the patio, a campfire, kids laughing in the background, and hearing lots of chatter.
2. Do you have one laundry soap you stick to, or do you buy whatever’s on sale?
I usually like anything that will make my house smell fabulous. I am also allergic to some laundry soap, so I have to be careful about switching all the time. Right now I am using Xtra.

3. What is your favorite dinner to make in the summer?
Hot dogs, kabobs, Grilled vegetables.. anything grill related?
On my dogs though I just like ketchup on the bottom and mustard on the top but on the side of the bun 🙂
4. Do you have any talents?
I played Clarinet for 6 years. Now I can grow flowers, plus its a hobby too.

5. If you could instantly be an expert in something, what would it be? Why?
I would love to be an expert in making my blog successful, not making money, but bigger and getting to enough people. I would also think I would like to be an expert with computers, we all have them, and who needs to call someone else when You already know whats wrong 😉

No No No, I dont want to hear it!

Life is hard

Sometimes in life we are dealt some hard cards. The cards that you hold in your hand for years to come, never knowing if you should get rid of them, or keep hanging on to them.

I have been dealt with a lot of cards in my life. I always come out on top, always looking at the positive instead of the negative. Can you imagine how life or your friends would be if your life is full of nothing but Negative? The sad brought on everyday, or the smart ass comments that they say 24-7. I have noticed to make your life better for yourself, you have to figure out who you are in the beginning. You have to find your inner-self before you can get rid of the cards that you are dealt.

No one ever said that this life is easy, and that you will never go through hard times, or times that you will never cry.

So, for today. Figure out what makes you happy, and sit and just relax on that thought. Let the smile come to your face, as you feel what you are thankful about, or just call a friend/family to make you laugh. Everyone needs a time in their day to smile, laugh and feel good about themselves.

 Joke for today

A young man was walking through a supermarket to pick up a few things when he noticed an old lady following him around. Thinking nothing of it, he ignored her and continued on. Finally he went to the checkout line, but she got in front of him. “Pardon me,” she said, “I’m sorry if my staring at you has made you feel uncomfortable. It’s just that you look just like my son, who just died recently.” “I’m very sorry,” replied the young man, “is there anything I can do for you?” “Yes,” she said, “As I’m leaving, can you say ‘Good bye, Mother’? It would make me feel so much better.” “Sure,” answered the young man.
As the old woman was leaving, he called out, “Goodbye, Mother!” As he stepped up to the checkout counter, he saw that his total was $127.50. “How can that be?” He asked, “I only purchased a few things!” “Your mother said that you would pay for her,” said the clerk.

Guilty Pleasure

Day 13: A song that is a guilty pleasure

So, I know we all have this guilty pleasure of knowing all the lyrics to a song that might get you the “look”. Here is my guilty pleasure…

Some people might say Hanson, Savage Garden, and Natalie with Torn, but mine is New Kids On The Block. My mom had a VHS with them recorded on it, along with Billy Idol – White Wedding. I have loved them every since that tape, LOL

Whats your guilty pleasure that you sing to, but wouldn’t do it around your friends/family?
