In which i fill you in

Ok, first let me say that I’m really surprised at how many people didn’t know what my bumper sticker on my car said.  I guess that it’s been a long time since I mentioned it and I do have a lot of new readers so it makes sense but STILL …


So this is a picture of my bumper sticker:




Ok, so now can I get on with my day? Yeah? Good.  Today I started my day in spinning and I realized that somehow, despite the fact that I work out every damn day, I’m more out of shape then ever.  When I came home from California after Labor Day I was determined to lose 15 pounds and I tried really, really hard for a couple of weeks.


Then I had my stupid mouth surgery so obviously I couldn’t really eat much then but I didn’t really lose any weight either.  The point is that I’ve now been trying to lose weight (kind of) for 4 weeks and I’ve lost 5 ½ pounds, which isn’t awful, but it’s certainly been stuck for a while.


Anyways, I guess that while I’ve been working out I really haven’t been killing myself (who can blame me) and this morning was an “interval” class and it was hard as shit and I realized that I used to work out that hard pretty often and now I really don’t.  This staying in shape shit is hard y’all!!!


Anyways, now I’m home and I’m trying to take care of a bunch of bullshit stuff even though I basically have all week because Kevin is traveling on business therefore I’m abandoned.


The exciting news is that I have planned a trip over Christmas for the 5 of us and I’m pretty excited.  You see, I realized that after this year I don’t know what Andie’s schedule will be since she’ll be doing rotations in Med School and all so I decided we should have sort of a last “hurrah.”


I rented a place and we’re going to Costa Rica and I’m pretty excited except I realized that out of all the details the thing that will be most difficult to figure out is the fish.  That’s right, you heard me, the fish!!


I can put Tucker and Butterscotch in the vets but the fish will need to eat for 12 days.  Last time, I tried those “vacation” fish pellets and they were a disaster.  I don’t have any kids in my neighborhood so that’s not going to work, which means that I will probably have to bring them to somebodies house.


The thing is, they get PTSD when they travel and then spend their time swimming into the sides of the tank, which is kind of freaky to watch.  Who would of thought the most complicated thing about going on vacation was some FUCKING FISH!!!  I had no idea what a colossal pain in the ass having them was or I never would have agreed.


Uh oh… I just glanced at them and I think they’re upset that I feel that way.  I can tell because we have sort of a fish/Lynn ESP thingie going on.


Anyways, let me know if you’re interesting in fish sitting over Christmas.  Other than that I’ve been just kind of floating through life trying to figure out what I should and shouldn’t be doing.


So, in other words, I’m a lazy and aimless shit.  Well, that’s about it with the news of the day except the sun is FINALLY out and the weather is beautiful.  Maybe I’ll actually be a good mom and take Tucker for a walk.


P.S.  I suck …

    I’ve been trying to lose a few kilos too but it ain’t shifting. Maybe it’s something to do with the wine… who knows? I love your bumper sticker by the way and I would sit your fish if I wasn’t on the other side of the world :)

    Any possibility the fish could hang out at the vet’s too? I mean, maybe they could visit the reception area and be office fish. Our vet doesn’t technically take anything but dogs and cats, but there’s some lady who leaves her talking parrot there about twice a year. The thing’s a riot, because it knows the doorbell sound and “rings” it when the staff all go to the back, entirely to see them come hurrying up to find a nonexistent customer.

    We used to have the same problem with our fish till my hubby went to one of the pet stores and bought a feeder that works off a timer. He has to rig it with a piece of wood over the fish tank, but it feeds them automatically like 2 or 3 times a day (or whatever you set it at – he overfeeds our fish)! If you want more details, you can email me at

    I’m an experienced fish feeder and will be glad to watch your fish, but you’ll have to deliver and pick up. Maybe you could schedule your flights through Paducah, KY and rent a car there. Do you have to buy fish a plane seat when they fly?
