**********ok now the second thing... story*******

Bubs and I were home alone this weekend...
AHHHH the thought...
Hubs had a nerd convention out of town
WAY out of town...
and so he left his little family all alone...(guilt trip ... yes... I am a brat)
ALL alone...
so...
no biggie
I am not a big chicken (yes I am)
I was happy that he got to travel with his
Turtle Crew to the outskirts of Texas
(not really I am selfish and like him all to myself... but I do share with Bubs)
Turtle Crew???... Yep I knew you would ask...
see

he is the blue one...
Leo
see I married a full on NERD!!!
I think it is pretty cool...
he and his buddies made these and they travel all over Texas for all kinds of events...
last weekend they were commissioned to go to Laredo for a collectors event (aka Nerd Convention)
because my nerd loves doing this I had to say
Go Ninja Go Ninja Go (cue Vanilla Ice)
and send him off with his Turtle Crew

so any who... it was just Bub and I...
home alone
and so we decided to watch a movie...
it was pouring outside and watching a movie was PERFECT
so we put in




it was soooooo good...
we were watching every minute of it...
it was hilarious
informative
suspenseful
and THEN...
with 15 minutes left...
right when you find out if the babies live or DIE...
the electricity goes out...
WHAT!!!!
so now I am home alone...
the rain is pouring
and the electricity is OUT...
oh and did I mention my mom and dad who live like 5 blocks away...
well they are gone too!!!
nice!!!
OH and did I mention right before the electricity went off...
I noticed my phone only had... 20% left
TWENTY PERCENT!!!
 I felt like the dumb girl in all those horror movies...
oh and to top it off...
I had to use my phone's flashlight to find other sources of light... (down to 12%)
and
I could only find the lantern... that you have to crank to keep lit... stupid battery free lantern
and then Bub had his giant flashlight from like the 70s...
seriously we found it at a thrift store... and it is so old the plastic (not even glass)
the plastic is yellowed
and even though it has brand new SIZE D batteries... it still only works at certain angles...
so I have a forever dimming lantern... and a YELLOWED sometimes it works flashlight
OH and I am a chicken... a big fat chicken...
so I lit every candle in the house too...
so my house smelled like a bath and body store...
except on crack...
if there was a flavor called cucumber melon vine ripe tomato peach bellini sugar cookie...
that would be my house... it was BAD...
so now I am home alone (ok I have Bub but he is 6)
and the lights are out...
what lights we do have are wonky and stinky
and my phone is now at 7%
I quickly send a text to my hubs and parents...
letting them know of my situation
and knowing they know I am SCURD... really really scurd
no one replies...
NOT ONE OF THEM...
Bub and I play a few board games...
we started getting headaches...
I wasn't sure if it was from our in and out yellow light or from the over abundance of aroma
it had been about 2 hours since the lights went out...
my phone was dead
and so I blew out all the candles
and we hightailed it to bed...
of course we went to MY bed...
all of us...
me, bub, and the 3 dogs...
did I mention my dogs are big chickens to!!!
they should BOCK instead of Bark....
and they were barking at every little noise... thanks girls
and so there we were... laying in bed...
all 5 of us... this is not normal
and eventually we all fall asleep
ZZZZZZZZZ
at about 11:30 (almost 4 hours after the lights went out)
voooosh.... all the things that were on before the outage... come back on...
and it was loud and BRIGHT!!!!
Bub stayed asleep
I got up and went to the front of the house... then I see
headlights... shining down my sidewalk...
and then I see someone walking up my sidewalk towards my house...
MY HEART skipped a beat until I saw a streak of PINK hair...
it was my mom... she and dad were checking on us.
thanks mom... we survived...
I stayed up til like 2 because let's face it I was still a little scared... ok I HATE being home by myself
and I stayed up until I couldn't anymore
the next morning...
BUB finally woke up and insisted we watch the movie again...
and we did...
again and again and again
I LOVE this movie
LOVE LOVE {puffy} heart LOVE it...
I want to show it to my kiddos...
when we cover our life sciences
it is rated G so I could...
BUT there is just one thing...
it shows bear boobies...
big bear boobies
I have no issue with that...
Bub even questioned if that is where the milk comes from...
I was super excited he knew this... YAY Bub
BUT I could just see bear boobies being an issue...
sad BEARY sad
what do you think???

ok so that was very random...
but thought both were worth sharing...

  1. Wait what movie was it? you can't leave us hanging like that! I don't like it when my hubs is away either - but sometimes he's night shift. The dogs always end up in bed with me then too! I think I totally would have freaked out to see the head lights and someone walking towards the house! I'm off to make sure I know where all of my flashlights are! But I still want to know the movie!

  2. I had my phone "light" shining in your window...and you SCURD me when I saw you walking toward the window. LOL How could you see my beautiful pink streak? I tried to be brave for you when you were little during frequent thunder storms when we were back in The Sipp all alone cause your dad was on a remote assignment with the Air Force. It was very hard and I had hoped you wouldn't be afraid...I still get scurd.....so you come by it honestly. I think flashlights are overrated...ours never work when we need them to...even with fresh batteries and the bit of being like a "high beam" is a sales ploy....that darn flashlight has yet to throw a "high beam" out into the yard so I can see that crazy red dog we know as Daisy. LOL OH, did I mention I love the Turtles? LOL

  3. A few years ago we took the 5th graders to see the Disney movie about the baby monkey. A few of the kids asked what kind of movie we were taking them to, because it showed monkey private parts. I told them that it was a G rated movie.

    I took my daughter to see Bears when it came out. We enjoyed the movie. I love the Disney Nature movies.

  4. I'm such a chicken about being home alone, too! I turn all the lights and tvs on for comfort. I love that your hubs does all the "nerdy" stuff! How fun!
