Things That Make You Go Hmmmm.....

Is anyone else as sick of the politics bullshit as I am?  I am so tired of hearing about it all.  All of the candidates that are still in the race suck.  ALL of them.  I just hope that whomever ends up becoming president doesn't screw our country up even worse than it already is.  (and I'm not placing the blame for our current condition on any one president, current or former - there's been a lot of mistakes made in the last 20 years or so, on both sides of the political aisle).

ENOUGH about politics WTF was I thinking even bringing it up!  LOL  I'm just really tired of all the negativity and moronic shit I've heard from both sides.

Kita pees like a boy dog sometimes.  It's the funniest thing to see - she'll sniff out a spot by a tree or other object, walk just a little past, back up until her butt is almost touching the object, squat a little and lift her leg like she's gonna do a girly pee, then straighten up her leg and aim her butt at the object, peeing on it.  She likes to pee where the boys have peed, marking over theirs to show her dominance.  I have never seen a girl dog do this before.

My riding lawn mower has almost seen it's last days.  *Someone* (NOT me) was riding it to cut the grass on the outside of the fence and got hung up on some kind of metal bar that was coming up out of the dirt, and the deck spindle broke apart, and one of the pulleys is bent all to hell.  Thankfully the parts don't seem to be too terribly expensive (less than $40 for both), so maybe we'll be able to get it running again.  Of course both of our push mowers are out of service at the moment, so Brian had to borrow the neighbor's old push mower to finish cutting the grass.  I think he's gonna work on getting our push mowers operational again, too, as they are easier to use in some spots than the riding mower anyway.

And we're probably gonna have to get a new weed eater, as I may have burned it up the last time I used it.  It's an electric one, and I was weed eating a lot, and then I started smelling smoke and looked and sure enough it was smoking.  I don't know if it's cause it's old and worn out, or if I used it too much without letting it cool periodically (I don't think that's it, as I've used it for as long prior and didn't have a problem).  I set it out in the yard that night so if it ended up catching fire, it wouldn't burn down our house, and I haven't tried it out again.  Maybe this weekend. 

And now for some great news - I've been nominated for Employee of the Quarter at work!  There's a brunch they're holding in a couple of weeks where they will announce the winner, and  I can't wait to see who wins.  I honestly wasn't expecting to be nominated for this, but am tickled pink at the honor. 

I'm hoping we'll get our garden fence up tomorrow, and then can plant our garden this weekend.  We're 2-3 weeks behind last year, but we did have some really cold weather in the last couple of weeks, so that's ok.  Our garden would have continued producing another month last fall if we had let it go on.  This year, our garden fence will be permanent (we're putting it up ourselves, to keep the dogs out), so we'll be able to plant fall veggies like collards and such.  Yummy!

Y'all have a great weekend!
