I Don’t Like Mondays

I Don’t Like Mondays!
 Monday I Can't Even
I don’t like Mondays is a theme in our house every week. The kids, especially J-Man hates to see the weekend come to an end. I think J-Man’s cat George expresses the feeling pretty well.
I don’t mind Mondays. It’s my day off and everyone else usually goes to work and school, leaving me all alone. This would be me if one of my kids stayed home sick on a Monday. 

Pippa is a 1 year old female domestic medium hair mix who came from a community rescue to Lollypop Farm to find her new humans.  She’s affectionate and well behaved.  Pippa likes other cats and dogs and would love to come home with you!

Did You Need Me To Move? Meow Monday

Last week was spring break in the BMB household. Sadly, only 2 days had spring-like weather and we were back to snow flurries on Easter Sunday. Since the kids were on break and I wasn’t, I decided to take a blogging break.

We had some fun, got caught up on some TV shows we had on the DVR and found a prom dress for Sissy. Yay! We played Bingo at the VFW with good friends and enjoyed the break from rushed mornings and stressful homework evenings.

J-Man is now looking forward to summer vacation! It still may feel like winter in July at this rate, but at least he won’t have school.

The kids are back in school and I’m shopping online getting some things done around the house and attempting to get back to my blogging.

Rosie is trying to prevent me from shopping and blogging.


She’s looking pretty comfy right there on my keyboard.

This week we are featuring Romano as our Lollypop Farm Pet of the Week.


Romano is a 2 year old male domestic shorthair mix. He’s a handsome guy who’s looking for a new home to call his own. The other pet in his previous home was picking on him so he’s in need of new digs. Come meet Romano at Lollypop Farm!

My Top 5 Cringeworthy Words

These are my top 5 cringeworthy words. I hate them and every time I hear them or read them on social media, I do a mental shiver and usually say “Ewww” out loud. 

1. Lover: Everyone all together now…. Ewwwww! I can’t be the only one that hates this word. If someone posts it as a status update on Facebook, as in “I’m having dinner with my lover.” or, even worse, in person when you meet them for the first time, and you hear “This is my lover” Ewww, ewww, ewww! I get that when you reach a certain age the words boyfriend or girlfriend can sound a little weird, but there is really no reason to ever use the word lover. Grab a thesaurus for pete’s sake. I’d even prefer “friends with benefits” to hearing “lover”. Ewww!

2. Kumquat: Yes, I know it’s a small citrus fruit, but really, what can you do with them? It’s not like you’re going to every say to someone, “You know what I could go for right now? A big glass of Kumquat juice!” or even better, posting on Facebook, “My lover is so thoughtful. He knows how much I love Kumquats!” Ewwwww!

3. Fart: Okay, I have to blame my mother for this one. Growing up in our family this was the “F-word” and saying it would bring down the wrath of mom on you. Besides being the “you’re going to be in so much trouble for saying the F-word” it was also something that ladies didn’t and still don’t do. Really, my mother said so. 

4. Brain Fart: See above. Even if you add the word brain in front of it, it’s still the “F-word” and if ladies don’t do that, then certainly brains don’t do it either. 

5. Polar Vortex: Last winter was the first time I ever heard that term. We had a bitter cold winter and once it was over, I never wanted to hear it again. Fast forward to this winter and the term Polar Vortex was thrown about and we had the worst winter ever. If I ever hear Polar Vortex again, it will be too soon. 

What words do you hate?

Wordless Wednesday: Chef Mickey’s

The theme of this week’s Wordless Wednesday is Photo Flashback.

The very first time we went to Chef Mickey’s it was 1991 and Chef Mickey’s was located in Disney Village Marketplace, now known as Downtown Disney. When we visited Walt Disney World Resort in 2005, Chef Mickey’s had moved to Disney’s Contemporary Resort.
Chef Mickey's


This was J-Man’s very first trip and he wasn’t a big fan of Chip. Sissy sure had a lot of fun though!

National Puppy Day Meow Monday

National Puppy Day

Since it’s Monday, you can usually find a post devoted to cats. But when it falls on National Puppy Day, all bets are off. Here my 3 pups when they were puppies. Toby is an 8-year-old lab/chow mix,. Perry is a 4-year-old shih tzu/pomeranian mix, and Miss Molly is a yorkie and is almost one. They were all such adorable puppies! 

national puppy day

If seeing all these cute puppies all over the Internet on National Puppy Day has you thinking of adding a puppy to your family, please adopt from your local humane society. They have wonderful puppies and dogs who would make a great addition to your family. Both Toby and Molly were adopted from Lollypop Farm, our local humane society. We are so lucky to have our 3 wonderful pups!
