Yippee Kai Yay, Y’all!

I am feeling wonderfully well, y’all. I’m finally able to surface from the fog of no caffeine. I swear, I am so pure now. I don’t smoke. I only drink water. I watch what I eat. Man, I’m almost a princess. 🙂

I’m actually surprised that giving up coffee, tea, and sodas was so easy. I don’t have to do the whole coffee thing in the morning or worry about only drinking herbal tea. It’s basically simplified a lot for me, so that’s a good thing. The trick is to continue to abstain. 

Tomatoes and other foods might be more difficult. I have to look up everything before I order it or put it into my mouth. Let’s see, I’ve gone from low carb to ketogenic to anti-inflammation to an anti-acid reflux diet. Good grief.

Stanley has been the best cuddle buddy and the sweetest thing the past few days. We’ve developed this weird habit of watching Too Cute every evening. I ask him if he wants to watch kitties and puppies and he goes to sit in front of the fireplace and looks up at the TV. I’ve never had a dog actually watch TV before, but he will watch for about 30 minutes before getting bored.

He whines a little whenever he sees another dog. I wonder if he’s lonely. If he is, there isn’t much I could do about it unless I get another dog. I’m not ready for another dog. What do you think? What does whining mean?

Have you noticed that San Antonio has been in the news lately, and not in a good way? There was a case of an 8 month year old buried by his father. The story was that he was abducted, but he wasn’t. Another story: a woman gave the Secret Service what for when they came to interview her about saying that the president should be assassinated. Okay, what happened with people having a teensy, bitty, bit of class, y’all? Anyway, I’m embarrassed about some of the actions of my fellow citizens.

In my neighborhood we have a loose chicken. Plus coyotes. Ergo, no more loose chicken. The other day one of the neighbors was hysterical because her pig and her pug got out.

I’m exceedingly boring compared to my neighbors, but I’m still a Dewy Blossom Princess in the Garden of Life. 

What do you think about Gillette coming out with an ad campaign against masculine men? Good grief, talk about shooting yourself in the foot…

Speaking of commercials, I love the Sling commercials with the couple who act like they’re swingers. Fun and imaginative.

And, speaking of TV I have found myself watching Dr. Pimple Popper. Yep, I’m actually fascinated by other people’s blemishes, lipomas, and skin diseases. It makes me very thankful for my good skin. There are many times when I have to close my eyes, but the fact that I’m watching it amazes me.

I could always blame it on no coffee. 🙂

  1. I love Dr. Pimple Popper! I have a bunch of them saved that my daughter and I will watch when Mike isn’t home. He is NOT a fan and gets queasy.

    I love the Slinger commercial. The woman is Megan Mullally and the guy is Nick Offerman. He played on Parks and Recreation…you know she is 60 years old and he is 48! I’m amazed by that. She doesn’t look 60 but those commercials are funny.

    • I used to love tomatoes in everything. No more. However, I can still eat stuff I like, so I’m okay with the whole thing. Whatever I need to do I’ll do.

  2. I admire your strength of character, I do not think I would be comfortable giving up my one cup of coffee and one glass of tea.

    Since I live with a dog who is similar to a stuffed animal, there is no watching of TV, no reacting to any sound from the TV, no playing with any toys, and no wanting to cuddle with me.

    He likes me, he is simply not that into me….he reminds me of Mr Wonderful and we were married to one another.

    • I love the way you describe things, Annette – and your Mr. Wonderful label.

      Poor Lovey, the Sheltie I had before Flash wasn’t in to anyone. She tolerated life. I would have loved to have known what happened to the darling in her early life.

    • I really feel that way, Catherine. I’m so blessed when you compare my issues to a lot of other people. It’s important that I don’t forget those blessings in the day to day annoyances.

  3. Hey Karen. I try not to see to much of the news. It makes me sick to my stomach.
    Not one of my animals watch tv. They do react to the sounds at times. Bark a knock or doorbell. A dog or cat sound on tv. I try explain that it’s just the tv, but they don’t listen. Lol. Hey, I watch Dr Pimple Popper too. The lipomas fascinate me.
    Have a great week.
