Not the illegal kind but the kind from outer space kind. We have had several UFO sightings in Texas this month so it has been possible. I have been ONE SICK GIRL. For reals. I do not remember much at all about last week. I do know that CPS did not come and take my kid away but that is about all. I slept. Then I slept. And I slept some more. Out of 7 days in a week, I wore make-up only 3. That should tell you something.

This is what 5 pounds of rice looks like when it spills on your pantry floor. That happened last Tuesday night. Tuesday January 15th.

Please note that it is all over the electrical cord that is attached to the vacuum cleaner. The vacuum cleaner that would be used to clean it up if I did not have to make a bigger mess wrestling it away from the rice.

Please note, when rice is left on the pantry floor for one week.....nothing happens. This picture is from Tuesday January 22nd. Damned mice did not even come and cart it off. This would not be a good science fair experiment.

Bebo only really got frightened once and that was last Saturday. There was nothing at all to eat in the house so I braved a trek to the grocery store. He had left me alone for just a few moments. When he returned he looked at me....then at the basket...then back at me.....

Bebo *eeerrrmmm Mom do we need to go ahead and go?*

Me *no, just let me get a few things and then get me out of here Bebo*

Bebo *eeerrmm...no really mom ~glances at the basket and then back at me~ I think we need to go ahead and go*

Me *NO just left me get some stuff. What is wrong with you?*

Bebo blurts out *MOM! WE DON'T HAVE A CAT!!*

My basket was filled with 8 large bags of cat food. And no, we do not have a cat. Bebo thought that I had totally lost my mind on his watch and he had just left me for precious minutes.

I explained to them that they were on clearance and I was picking them up for Marty.

Bebe felt much better after that.

You would have thought that the aliens would have at least left me a souvenir t-shirt. If they had, it would read *I was abducted by aliens and didn't even get probed*.

I feel MUCH better this week.


  1. glad you're feeling better, and congrats to bebo on his win for the long hairs. i hope he enjoys the fruits of his labor. i do expect to see pics

  2. I was wondering where you went to - and now I know... you were sick. I am so sorry.

    That rice... wouldn't it be nice if the rice man came to pick it up for you?

  3. Honey! You poor thing! I'm glad Bebo was with you at the store.

  4. This sounds more like the body snatchers to me! Hope you're feeling better. I know I am. I can always count on you for a chuckle. Hugs.

  5. Oh sweetie, I do hope you are feeling much, much better.

  6. I'm glad to hear you are feeling better (and sorry to hear you did not get probed!..snicker, snicker). You know, if the mice had come to get the rice, they would have little poo trails behind and that is worse than rice to clean up.

  7. OH MY. If it makes you feel any better, the same thing would happen here (i.e. mess left for a week.)
    But shucks. Sorry YOU were sick and I'm glad you are better.

    P.S. LOL at the cat food...

  8. I am sorry you were sick. There is nothing worse.

    Wonderboy and I watched Larry King talk to folks about the UFO's and we wondered about you, Bebo, BabyGator and Rach. I am so glad that none of you were taken. You're not missin' anything with the probing business. They never use anything interesting or that vibrates. ;)

    The rice is understandable. Although I would dock the rat's pay this week for falling down on the job.

    And if Marty doesn't need the cat food, we'll take some over here. LOL.

  9. LMAO. They didn't probe you because all you had was freakin' CAT FOOD. Everyone knows aliens don't eat cat food. Sheesh. *snickersnort* I would have loved to have been a little bug in your brain listening to whatever you were thinking to yourself when you put the cat food in the cart.

  10. Glad you feel better, Mindy!

    The aliens must've got lost while looking for Roswell! Time to fire TomTom, DougDoug or whomever he is!

    I puffy heart Bebo for being concerned about the cat food!
    That made me laugh out loud. I must ask, however, does Marty have a cat??

    But, you and I differ on the rice mess. Why can't Mr. Bebo clean it up?? Are his arms broken?

    I am very glad that you are feeling better.

  12. Sorry to hear you were so ill. Hope you're feeling much better now. It's so rude of those aliens to abduct you and not do any interesting experiments. :P

  13. I knew you were sick when you kept calling me and saying now Baby Gator don't call me cause I am going to lay down. I got a phone call like this three or four times a day. Please note, I was not the one calling!

  14. Did you let Bebo drive home?

    Cuz, that can scare the sick out of a mom, let me tell you.

  15. Does Marty have a cat???? Oh gawd, that is a three week series of posts at least. What cat DOESN'T she have? And don't even get started on the dogs...

    You know, this is the second week in a row I am having to threaten to kick yer posterior. You have now given me your illin' germs!

    We keep this us and people are gonna talk...more so than they already do...

  16. I am so, so glad you're feeling better.
    And I sympathize about the rice. I spilled about half of a box of detergent (the 40/42-use size) in the laundry room. Luckily a lot of it fell into the washing machine. That was one sudsy load.

    ((Mindy)) Those are get well hugs.

  17. I hate, hate, hate being sick. I'm glad you're better.

  18. I'm so sorry you were sick and glad to hear you're better.

  19. Glad you're feeling better. I'm still not back 100%. Not even as far back as I thought I was. One more meeting and I can go back home. When I saw the doc, I explained that one of my symptoms was an overwhelming desire to crawl in bed for 3 days. The problem with that is like you, I'm the mom and everyone else was sick too. Here's to health for all of us!

  20. glad to hear you are better sweetie .. and that you weren't really abducted.

    something in the post :)
