Late To The Party…

I’m slow to get around today. I wanted to finish my sewin’ project but I hit a bump in the road and had to stop until I get more fabric. But none the less it’s Talk To Us Tuesday!!!


So Link Up and make new friends or converse and catch up with old ones.

Impulsive Addict and Seriously Shawn are couple of really great gals!

It’s been one of those weeks! A real roller coaster!! On my birthday I had a nasty cold that lasted 4 or 5 days! I couldn’t kick it at all! Contrary to popular belief, I don’t mix my drugs and booze! It’s either booze or cold medicine… so I choose booze.

Do you think that’s why I had that cold for so long?


My hub did come through like a champ and bought me a pretty necklace and matchin’ earrings of garnets and diamonds. He picked them out all on his own. After I turned my nose up at black diamonds, he just took the bull by the horns and bought what he wanted!

A while back, I bought a couch at an auction. It’s near new! And a sleeper sofa!! Well. Last night we decided that it has bed bugs!!


All of my furniture is settin’ outside and all clothes that was in the livin’ room is in my car. Why?

Freezing. Bedbugs are also vulnerable to temperatures below 32 F (0 C) but you'd need to leave the items outdoors or in the freezer for several days… Per the Mayo Clinic!

The upside to this… I get a brand spankin’ new couch. For some reason, I’m not thrilled. I never saw a man move so quickly to throw a couch out in the yard. Roy practically HULKED out and tossed it like a ball! If he hadn’t been in such a hurry to get the rest out and all the carpet vacuumed he would have set the damn thing on fire right there under the red bud trees in the back yard.

I was just so sick to my stomach over it. We both were under our mattress with flashlights and THANK ALL THAT IS GOOD AND HOLY WE DID’T FIND ANY EVIDENCE OF THEM!!!


This is like the time my daughter had head lice. I wanted to burn the whole house down. But just burned her pillows. And I didn’t shave her head but I cried while I combed it every day with that medicine to kill them.

So it’s been a roller coaster… I was gonna buy Roy a Playstation 3 for Christmas but now I get a new couch.

Do you think I may be lookin’ at this all wrong??

So what’s new with you?

I'm so sorry...but I laughed my ass off at your misery! I would've been all set to firebomb the entire house.

Jill said...

That's awsome that the hubs got you some nice jewelry for your birthday! See, another reason I need a man...I have to buy all my own damned jewelry...

Yikes! I don't blame you for not being happy about the bedbugs in the couch!! New furniture is great, but only when you get to choose it on your OWN terms!!

Impulsive Addict said...

EWWW! This was so disturbing. I'm at a loss for words. I guess I wasn't sure that bedbugs were real. Are they? Well, hey, at least you get a new one. Roy is probably less ecstatic about getting it since he no longer gets a PS3.

What a nice bday present! M could learn from him you know.

Thanks for linking up with us my dear! We appreciate it! xoxo

Bed bugs are the one thing in this life that really do scare me, Ugh. Glad you are feeling better!

Stacie said...

Well, if you had gotten Roy the PS3, you would for sure need a new couch, because my husband is wearing ours out sitting around playing video games.

Heather's Happenings said...

Jewelry is always awesome!
Glad you found no bed bugs in your bed. I'll have to remember the freezing thing if we ever encounter them.

Connie said...

When we lived in Utah.....there was a mouse living in my couch and I threw it outside.

Then I gave it to my sister.

Date Girl said...

oh MAN! I would have been freaking the F out too. My skin is crawling just thinking about them. At least you found them quick!! Poor Roy doesn't get his PS3. Maybe they'll have some good after Christmas sales and you can get it then. I know my Match is in love with his PS3. It was the best/worst gift I could have given him. I love that he loves it, but sometimes when he's all frustrated at a game it bugs the crap out of me. If you do give him one, make sure you invest in headphones!!!
