Adulting Can Kiss My Ass

Good evening. I hoped to be blogging from my co-pilot chair on the way to our spirit home.  Instead I’m at home because responsibilities suck and Lord B and I decided to cancel our trip. Red Dress Run for us this year. Our tutus and my devil horns are still packed away in the closet crying silent tears of sadness. This is the sucky part of owning a business and being the HMFIC. When it’s busy, it’s all on you and you can’t just take off....even though I REALLY NEED to GTF out of town for a few days. I’m super thankful for all of the orders and I wouldn’t dare complain about all the business coming my way right now.  But still, I am human and a bit of a brat so you know I’m going to complain just a little bit!  But it’s all good! We have a trip planned for my birthday weekend which also happens to be Southern Decadence so I can’t wait!  I’ll still get my NOLA fix 😀

The Tolbert business meeting was held last weekend and the music this year at the cook off is going to be amazing!!! I can’t wait! And....we have such a killer camping spot so that we can sit up at camp and still hear the music perfectly. I’m really looking forward to going this year. 

Speaking of Tolbert. I organized a North Texas Tolbert Chili Group in an effort to organize more Tolbert and Verde CCOs in the N. Texas area as well as make chili cooks more aware of the existing Tolbert cook offs in this area. The response has been fabulous and I think everyone is really excited to have an organized group in this area to bounce questions off of, post cook offs and help organize more cook offs. You can find us on FB by searching for the North Texas Tolbert Chili Group. The group is public so anyone can see cook off posts, results, etc. 

I’m going to sneak in some Yoga tomorrow and Saturday morning but expect to be slinging spices all weekend. Marching practice is in full swing so I’m back to being TJoL&D’s car service. I don't feel like we had much of a summer break. She was either at the band hall helping out or at band camp. And if she wasn’t at either of those places, she and I were sleeping in a parking lot to get barricade for Twenty One Pilots. I bought floor seats and that was her Christmas present. But 2nd row (where we were the last time she saw them) wasn’t enough and this time she wanted on the barricade. Well, the little shit talked me into sleeping in a tent for two nights and guess what - she got barricade. And really, y’all know how much I love my kid so I’m not really bitching about her. But damn! It took me a week to recover from that shit. And I’m not exaggerating when I say I ended up in the hospital for two days after that experience! I’m serious! That messed me up. But anyways. Twenty One Pilots fans are not like Radiohead fans. I may have pulled a girl's hair for pushing in between me and my kid 😇

I’m off to bed. Poor substitute for co-pilot seat while Lord B drives like a bat out of hell to get us to Ruby Slipper for breakfast. But I’ll manage 😛

Spreading my own special brand of kindness and joy!

Happy Friday!  Just a quick post to let everyone know I'll be closed at the end of the month while I go on a birthday trip.  I doubt I n...
