The Best Place in the Whole Wide World.

You guys probably already know this,
but I have the best MeeMaw in the whole world!
She's literally the most amazing person.
I want to be her when I grow up.
I went to visit her this weekend,
it's about a 4 hour drive from where I live.
and her farm is the most amazing place you will ever go to.
She is such a freaking bad-ass, like, I can't even.
She is 78 years old, and runs a farm.
She has a horse, sheep, 2 dogs, and like 100 cats.
No, she's not a crazy cat lady...she needs them to keep to gofers away.
She also used to have lots of chickens, but the coyotes kept eating them.
She'd let me collect the eggs, and wouldn't get mad when I would accidentally drop them!
These are her sheep.  One of them just had a baby on Easter. I think you can see it in the photo.

I have some photos of her farm around here somewhere!
I guess that will have to be another post!

Ok, well now what?

I was going to do another "oh dear, it's Monday again" gif set.
But, for's not really a normal Monday.
I got laid off from my job on Friday.
So, I guess it's back to life like this post on my previous interviews.
Oh, I sure hope not!
I actually feel like the world is at my fingertips!
I can start over in a sense.
Do I want to go back to school and get a teaching credential?
Do I want to move?
Well, I for sure want to move.
The question is where? or even, when?
What do you guys do for a living?
Because, you know, I'm kind of looking for some ideas.

Single Shaming.

I think I've mentioned on here before that I am 100% single.
I like being single (most days).
I've always said that if I'm married at 30-32 I'll be happy.

But, what I want to write about today is single shaming.
Oh. my. lord. I can't tell you how often this happens to me.

Random co-worker (only 3 days I started my new job):
"Oh, so now that you have this job are you going to find someone and get married and have kids?"
Umm, what?  That's kind of a personal question, and I hardly know you.
And if you did know me then you would know that kids are DEFINITELY no where in my thought process.

Other co-workers:
"So, do you have a boyfriend?"
"No, I don't."
"Oh, well how old are you?"
"Oh...umm...well you still have time."
Hell yea I still have time.  This isn't the 1800's, and I am not an old maid just yet!
That last statement is usually followed up by what I call "The Look".
Which is basically a sympathetic yet quizzical look that asks, 
"What the hell is wrong with you that you aren't married yet?"

Random restaurant guy:
I was feeling really sick so I went to my favorite pho restaurant for some soup.
"Just for one?'
"oh {insert The Look here}, well I will eat dinner with you."
Geez.  Do I have to share every meal with a significant other?

If I waited for a guy to do anything in my life, nothing would get done
...and apparently I would be really hungry.
Boy: "Little Numbers"

I hope they make the day better.
