Inside Ricki – A Diary-ish Thing

Caught in the car wash –

I had a very dirty, Mad Max Camry so I decided to stop at a super cute brand new car wash.

As I was pulling into the car wash – a kid guided me onto the conveyor and before I completely pass him – a cute blonde girl comes running out and pointing at my drivers side rear area – he boy shrugged it off and I looked at them like ??? what??? They didn’t stop me so I kept going.

I go thru the drive thru – car in neutral, no brakes  – then at the end – and my car won’t move forward.

Next thing I hear the loud grinding and shutting down of something mechanical.

I open my car door, get out and turns out a dog leash had been hanging out the back door (what the blonde girl saw) and it had hooked on the teeth of the conveyor, and was completely looped over 2 teeth plus was under my tire!!

It was soo tight I had to get back into my car twice to back up far enough for it to slack up.

Third try – I got out again, opened the door, finally unhooked the thing – – the ground was crazy slippery, no one was anywhere and I didn’t hear any bells or whistles going off. So I drove forward out of the washer.

Before I left the parking lot -I decided that I needed to say something to the staff – in particular the blonde girl who pointed out the potential issue from the very start.

So,I pulled around and the same kid who let me in the car wash, opened the drive thru window.

Perfect! -I said  ” Hey, that girl was right – I totally got stuck in there– but it’s cool because everything was fine– but –  she was right and deserves an A for the day.”

The kid kinda stared at me for a second – maybe waiting for me to freak out on him…and apologized.

No harm, no foul – and TOTAL GIRL POWER!!

Inside Ricki – A Diary-ish Thing

If you have ever visited a a pet store – you may have seen their “dog treat bar” – ya know . Self-serve dog treats that you pay for by the pound.

Well I had bought some that looked JUUST like animal crackers and Gia seemed to like them.

I put them in the cute bag (like the Brach’s hard candy ones from Eagle Grocery store back in the day) and left them at my ex’s after the weekend

I got a call yesterday afternoon from my ex and he was laughing sooo hard….. I could barely make out “I ate dog treats”.

Even though the bag had a Petco logo on the front – and cute clear cellophane with blue paw prints all over it – he smashed majority of the bag before he realized.

Of course I asked if they were good and he laughed saying “not bad”.

There must be great stories like this out there – share them!!

  • More Christmas Shopping Done – I did more Christmas shopping!!!! Christmas in July!!! EEEEE! I got my siblings Caty, Nicole, Charlotte, Anna and my Mom DONE!! I just now have to remember that I bought this crap and not buy more for them. – :{ I need to re-work my list and see who I have left. I don’t think many – My youngest siblings Nico and Zac are easy because they just want gift cards for Game Stop or call of duty or fancy socks. Boys these days….My stepdad is kinda hard – but I usually figure something out.

    I wonder if I can get everything brought and wrapped before September!!??

  • But honestly, the reason I start soo early – is that I want to create a nice moment for those that I love with a gift that they will love – and that were a deal for me. Ya gotta budget when you have a big family 🙂
  • Have you started your shopping? Do you hate me for getting started already? What are your ways to save money?

Inside Ricki – A diary-ish thing

For the past several days while helping a friend recover from surgery,  I have been cleaning a pool.

It is not a task that i look forward to – in fact – cleaning out the skimmer baskets, is what I hate it more than anything.

It never fails that there is a deceased critter of some sort in there all yucky and …..just ew.

So much ew – that when I take the top off of the skimmer well – I don’t like to touch it – so I found a busted plant hanger metal rod thing and used it as a hook to pull the covers off – then used it to hook out the basket and carry it over to the woods to dump out. It worked like a charm!!

Even though there were 4 dead frogs, many spiders and beetles, a dead lizard or newt and one mouse or shrew who wasn’t having a great day.

Then it was decided that I better vacuum the pool too.

When you do this you have to put one end of the hose in one skimmer and plug up the other skimmer with a bathtub looking plug….but even though the debris was out of the baskets, it still felt yucky in there and I didn’t want to stick my arm in.

So – I racked my brain figuring out how I can do this without touching. DING DING DING – BBQ tongs – Hell yea!!

They worked perfect!!  See I’ll get it done with a little help from tools.

Well over the weekend,  I had a dream (er…nightmare) about all of the frogs I have been pulling out of the pool the past couple weekB.s…and it bothered me.

So I googled and found a product that will save ALL OF THEIR LIVES – Frog Log.

Be watching for this to be the latest addition to a pool near you 🙂

Inside Ricki – A diary-ish thing

It felt like I was having the birds and the bees conversation for the first time the content wasn’t nearly as lewd but it scared me just the same….

Gia and I went to get dog food at a pet store and whenever there are kids around that want to pet her –  I always let them say hi, because she really isn’t around kids that often and she needs the socialization. So these three kids probably like 10, 8 and 5 years old came running up really fast – they started petting her everywhere and she was taking it really well.

Then the seven or eight year old looks at me and says “she doesn’t have a tail…what happened to her tail????”
I couldn’t tell him that the breeder CUT her tail off when she was a baby…..
I stood there with 6 eyes staring at me for an answer….. Uh…..I felt like this was a moment that their parent should explain to them……it was a very uncomfortable moment that could potentially be tragic for the kids  and I didn’t feel it appropriate for me to be the one to tell them the truth.

All I said was “that is how she came”. Thank god I don’t have kids. WWBD?? (what would brando do) How would you explain that to your kids? Would you want a stranger telling them??
