Big Medical Words / Deep Thoughts About POTS / Uncategorized

Unless you live under a rock, I’m sure you knew that today was the total solar eclipse (or for us the 92% eclipse).  This made plenty of people completely lose their minds.  Some people drove hundreds of miles and paid thousands of dollars for a spot to sit and watch the 5 minute eclipse in the path of totality.  Some people paid insane amounts of money for eclipse glasses. A few notes about this: Every […]

Won any Free Cruises Lately?

It seems like every time I answer a call from an unknown number I am either winning a cruise or Fred with the IRS wants to talk to me about an urgent matter.  I saw an article today that may just be of interest to you. If you happened to get a call with a robotic voice telling you about the cruise you just won, it could be worth up to $900 to you.  A […]

Carly & Evan fell in love last season in paradise.  Of course they are getting married in paradise too.  Plenty of Bachelor family is there to celebrate.  Nick and Vanessa, Kaitlyn and Shawn, Jade and Tanner, and plenty of other well-known singles.  The ceremony is beautiful and perfectly weird.  There is a Shaman and shell/horn blowing and smoke christening.  It was very ‘Carly & Evan-ish’.  They were beaming. Papa Chris gathers all of the cast […]

Bachelor in Paradise Recaps / Uncategorized

I decided I would go ahead and recap these episodes too… since I’ll be watching anyways.  The format is a little more fun.  Multiple guys and girls.  Less structure; more alcohol.  If you’re new to BIP, here’s how it works: The resort area is filled with guys and girls of bachelor alum.  There is a bartender for unlimited drinks.  Every once in a while a date card will show up for one of the guys or […]

In May I agreed to run a booth at a swap meet type parking lot event in August.  This weekend was the event.  Before I agreed, I enlisted Monica to see if she would help and bring her merchandise too.  I knew I would need a babysitter. Plus she is the best at packing a cooler.  Since May, I’ve been working on all of my ‘semi-good’ days to make signs, refinish furniture, and collect treasures, […]

Bachelor in Paradise starts soon, y’all. Surprise! Rachel is with Chris to help host the LIVE (but not really) finale.  Spoiler alert: all that means is there is more talking in between the actual show clips. Our last TO BE CONTINUED was in the middle of Peter’s date when he was telling Rachel that he wasn’t sure he would be ready to propose to her in a week.  She is crying.  She is so confused.  No […]

Funny Farm Stuff / Uncategorized

Farm Animal Update It’s been a bit since I did a little post about my animals.  The ducks are doing a great job learning to quack.  It’s pretty stinking cute.  Essentially, you don’t know for sure on the sex until they are fully grown.  I got nervous recently because both Lucy and Ethel got a patch of bright blue so I was worried they might be Ricky and Fred.  Turns out with Mallards that both […]

Cooking with POTS & Pans / Uncategorized

Breakfast + cookies= probably gonna be good.  My aunt found a great deal on blueberries yesterday and brought me a bunch!  I froze some and left the rest out for cereal and baking with now.  I posted a picture of one on my Facebook this morning and the people want the recipe.  This recipe comes from the blog Sally’s Baking Addiction, which is a favorite of mine for recipes!  She rarely disappoints. I didn’t plan on posting […]

Alex is back in an ubsurdly crazy suit.  Dean is back with valid questions for Rachel.  Whaaaboom is Whaaabooming and all is right in the world.  I mean wrong.  All is wrong in the world. It’s the night of bleeping bleeps. We start with the flashbacks of the best drama this season held.  In case you forgot, that included Lee and Kenny, Whaaaboom and Blake, DeMario with the surprise visit from the scrunchied (now) ex-girlfriend, […]
