We love our woolly bullies...even when they flooded our house!

New Mexico Christmas

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, bloggy friends! We spent Christmas with my parents this year, drinking Costco eggnog (delicious) and playing Mexican Train Dominoes. We didn't even bother to decorate our house, lazy folks that we are. Actually, I did put out a holiday hand towel. Does that count? (Totally counts.) Christmas (2020)  It's unusual for SN and I to spend a New Mexico Christmas at home, all alone. As much as I'd like to say we made the most of it, celebrating another COVID holiday with just the two of us seemed a bit...old?  Repetitive? Pointless? We had our tinsel in a tangle. At first, it seemed like Christmas was just going to be like any other day. Another boring quarantine breakfast followed by another boring quarantine lunch. But then... We were visited by Santa's reindeer! What do you mean that's just a normal deer outside our window? It's clearly Blitzen. Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow,  Olive and Bernadette were consumed by holiday m

Christmas Memes and More

Inspired by the popularity of my other memes posts, Funny Memes and Dog Memes , I have a new collection of memes for you to enjoy. I waste my life on the internet so you don't have to. Christmas Memes and More Fair warning that some of these are in poor taste. Isn't that usually the funniest meme?

Thanksgiving Procrastinators

Thanksgiving snuck up on us this year. SN and I had been enjoying a relaxing week in Fort Walton Beach, FL right before the holiday. Thanksgiving was not on our minds. Prior to our getaway, I'd sent out a Thanksgiving invitation, then put the holiday on the back-burner. There's nothing 'harvest' about Fort Walton Beach. No pumpkins, no chill in the air, no mulled apple cider . Actually, everywhere we visited was already decked out with Christmas decorations. Actually, as long as I'm starting sentences with 'actually,' I might as well correct what I said earlier. This was a relaxing week in Florida other than the fact that we were both working full time while there. I'm getting off topic though. And here you thought you were going to see some Thanksgiving photos.  It's hard to think about Thanksgiving when you're at the beach.  We returned home and SN mentioned getting ready for company. It was still so far away - no need to think about that now.

Working Hard in Hawaii

Sexy Nerd's job requires him to travel almost every week. He flies so many places so frequently, half the time I'm not even sure where he is. I just asked him if he saw the zebra balloon in the air over Albuquerque yesterday morning and he said no. I asked if he'd seen any balloons and he said no. Incredulously, I asked how that could possibly be, as there are hot air balloons everywhere right now. He hasn't seen any balloons because he hasn't been here. Oh, right. Is Sexy Nerd in Washington D.C. this week? Napa Valley? Instead of being home, the poor guy is always stuck sleeping at a resort or dining at a gourmet steakhouse. Poor, poor Sexy Nerd. Recently, his work made him go to Hawaii. Don't you feel sooo bad for him? I hated for Sexy Nerd to feel homesick, all alone in a tropical paradise, so I tagged along. Yes, I am the best wife ever, obviously. Ted's Bakery, one of our favorite restaurants in the world. We even bought our wedding cak
