The Shots Heard 'Round the World

Warning: The following post contains images of bug bites that may be disturbing to some viewers. In other words you may not want to look at this while you’re eating. 

If you follow me on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, you’ve probably noticed there’s been a flurry of activity in our lives the past few weeks. Two weekends ago Brian and I attended BloggyCon ’14 in Sandusky, Ohio. In the middle of last week, we drove to Birmingham, Alabama for Brian’s first grown-up interview. We remembered that the last interview he had was in 2001 at a bookstore in Athens, Georgia. He was hired to remove stickers from the textbooks. That interview probably went something like this:

Interviewer: “Son, have you ever sniffed Goo Gone?”

Brian: “Not that I recall.”

Interviewer: “Well, today is your lucky day.”

I’m pretty sure he was high on Goo Gone that entire summer.

BIG News & BloggyCon

If I’m being 100% honest with y’all, I’d have to say that I reluctantly went to BloggyCon ’14 at Cedar Point this past weekend. Veeeeeeery reluctantly. So much so that I was tempted to call the event organizer and just lay out for her all of the reasons I didn’t want to go:

  1. We just moved from Kansas to Georgia.
  2. My husband will be jobless in approximately two weeks.
  3. I came down with a severe cold the day before we were supposed to leave.
  4. We planned to drive 768 miles to Sandusky, Ohio and back again. Because, you know, we haven’t spent enough time in the car lately.
  5. Cedar Point has always been on my bucket list, but I wasn’t going to be able to actually enjoy myself there.

[Well, that’s a negative attitude. Why couldn’t Katy enjoy herself at one of the happiest places on earth?]

Try not to sing the theme song from The Jeffersons the rest of the day. Just try.

Note: If you’ve never heard of The Jeffersons, you’re too young to read this blog. Please return to your Snapchat. (I recently had to ask a younger individual what Snapchat is, and she SCOFFED at me.)

Granted, I’m even too young to remember anything about The Jeffersons except the theme song. But it sure is a catchy one.

[Seriously? Katy has been AWOL for over a month, and she opens up by talking about The Jeffersons?]
