Tree is up! I can’t believe it’s almost December.
Early airport morning.
In other weird news, I woke up with a black tongue this morning.
I blame the Pepto Bismol chewable tablet I took last night.
I forgot to post this the other day, I dont know how I forgot omg
a few days ago when I was sitting outside of a doctor’s office with my dad waiting for the door to open, while waiting made conversation with an 80-something year old man named george and his wife ruth. we talked for a bit about the weather and hummingbirds until george looks at me with the oldest expression he could muster and asks “do you recycle? would you like three empty beer cans and a clothes hanger I found in the road to throw out?”
to be nice, I told him that I would did and would recycle it. but when he told his wife to go get it from the car, I saw her giggle and shake her head. I was a little bit confused when I saw her digging around and I saw something red in her hand. he apparently hid it behind his back while I wasn’t looking, and he gave me the biggest smile when he presented it to me. “here you go, this is your three empty beer cans and a coat hanger! do you still want to throw it out?”
apparently he’s been making them since ‘78 and gives them out to any person that he thinks deserves one. I thought this was the cutest thing ever 8A8
Nate Silver is back. Well, for a minute.
My biggest takeaway? My husband isn’t getting a paycheck.
And if he’s not getting paid, there are tons of other people who are not getting paid who don’t have the luxury of having a spouse with a job, or having savings, or having a financial situation that makes it ok to not get paid for a week or even a day or however long this stupid stupid stupid situation is going to last.
And that makes me really mad at the jerks who are continuing this bullshit and really sad for the people who are struggling to maintain with lack of salary.
Act quickly to protect your life.
Stay away or be swept away.
Warnings from the National Weather Service this morning regarding the massive amounts of rain in the Denver area.
We ate at this iconic Denver restaurant tonight. Now we’re all fighting for the bathroom. Kind of kidding. But it was quite an experience!
Call it a hunch, but I don’t think we’re going to run out of chives. Ever.
Volunteers help baby sea turtles get to the ocean safely.

Run little guys!
I’m all for people helping them, but what on earth did these turtles do before humans were there to help guide them to the ocean, which I’m led to understand is an instinct they’re already born with?
Do I just sound like an idiot?
I’m being bad at posting again.
I passed my real estate licensing exam in August. Yay!
I threw a BBQ for 20 people I’ve never met before but had a connection with through a national group and it was awesome.
I’m going to Buffalo this weekend.
This shutdown can suck it bc husband isn’t getting paid while he’s not employed and Congress is really making me angry. I feel like children would be better suited to run our country sometimes.
I’m also probably going as Frida Kahlo for Halloween. It’s going to be awesome. Just FYI.
There are more updates I’m sure, but since I’ve been so lame at posting, that’s the quick and dirty update.
Just in case anyone is wondering, it’s still raining in Colorado.
