And the fun continues…

I’ve never been much into astrology, but I do like to read my horoscope every now and again. And all I can say is, ever since Mercury hid in my 12th house (whatever the hell that means) I have been having some crappy luck! But the crappy part? is hidden inside the good stuff, just like Mercury.

Crappy part: rain storm, mud hole, dog with Montezuma’s revenge

Good stuff: soil now perfect for laying beautiful new sod, the fact that someone else is laying the beautiful new sod

Crappy part: major leak in sprinkler system (God knows how long!)

Good stuff: the landscaper is also a sprinkler guy, so has been working on it all day

Crappy part: The landscaper has been working on it all day. Of course, that means having to turn the water off

Good stuff: I’m off to do a little shopping, so no worries about the water. It’s only for half an hour, right?

Crappy part: It’s a bigger job than originally thought, this little leak. Water off for the two hours I’m gone. Dog leaves Montezuma’s revenge in her “house”. While cleaning, accidently get ‘revenge’ on my finger (EEEEWWW!) totally not realizing the water is still off!!

Good stuff: You know, there really is nothing good about getting dog poop on your finger when there is no water to get it off. Thank goodness I drink a lot of bottled water and keep it on the counter. Thank you Jenny Craig! Did you know it takes at least 3 pumps of antibacterial foam soap and two 20-ounce bottles of water to get a tiny spot of dog poop off your finger?

Oh wait, I did think of something good in all that…

I have a full bottle of vodka and one lime.

Hello, Happy Hour.


  1. Oh you are to funny! Sorry about all your crappy luck! Wishing you a much better weekend!

    I keep baby wipes and anti-bacterial wipes in both our trucks side door panel. Sometimes I get OCD real bad and can't touch anything like gas pumps and grocery carts and I never touch doors or elevator buttons and so on and so forth. Sorrya this wasn't about me. I get side tracked like that. Forgive me.

    Sunshine and smiles.

  2. Great post! I'm sorry you had such luck lately. It does provide us with something to laugh about! That's my good part.

  3. Well - Look at that! It's after 5 over there! And it's all going to be done this afternoon...

  4. Good luck, I'm sure the day will get better, especially if you crack open that bottle of vodka.

  5. Dog poop is like plutonium, you only need a little bit.

  6. OMG - You are my missing twin, what with the house disasters, the dog poop on the digits and the vodka!!! Love ya!


I would love to hear what you have to say!
