Bobcats Too, Oh my!

Amy's Friday Five: This is where I share with you the 5 things I have learned this week and you just might learn a little something about me at the same time.

I have to hurry, last night I wasn't feeling so hot and went to bed and this morning I should have already left to pick up Grammy at the airport - a two hour drive one way. Of course the girls are not wanting to get out of bed. I could tell them what we are going to do(that would get them moving )but it is a surprise!

So five things I learned this week:

1. That (thanks to Mama Kats Writers Workshop) there are people like me who love their pillows and the smell of rain on concrete. I am not alone, Yay!

2. That we have bobcats too! Great because wild piglike animals, sun spiders, moths the size of birds, 6 different kind of deadly snakes, mountain lions, obnoxious owls and coyotes are not enough in the Land of Nowhere! We actually have a lot more but those ones annoy me.

I thought we were being robbed but turns out that is was a bobcat in our backyard. I think he had a dinner date with a frog! It didn't turn out so well for the frog.

3. I don't miss migraines. Nope I don't. It has been awhile but I have a visitor, she doesn't come that often, and this time she brought her friend, Migraine. You know who can take there "have a happy ." and cram it up there you know where. I am not so happy!

4. People love funny stories. My husband thinks it is because he is just that awesome. So awesome he didn't wake up last night when the Bobcat was hunting in our backyard! Did you see my comments yesterday? I think it probably helped that Lady Di rolled called first on SITS. Lady Di is way funnier than I am so I hope they come back.

5. Again thanks to Mama Kats WW, We have an epidemic of sleep walkers in the world. I'm not sure how safe we are at night. Maybe it is a good thing I have no neighbors and live in the Land of Nowhere. :) If you got the time go visit all the peeps who responded to last weeks prompts. Funny Funny!

There you have it - my Friday Five. Did you learn something this week? Do share.
Have a great weekend. I'm off to the airport.

** guess what my hubbie just found in the backyard - a snake. Lovely it is supposed to be snakeproof. Guess I learned that it isn't!

Migraines...uggh no fun, I am working on one right now as a matter of fact!
I don't mind the snakes or moths or owls or big cats...but why why WHY is there always a spider in the mix! HATE THEM!

Kristin said...

I learned the true meaning of the word frenemy. Booooo. And the hubs didn't wake up when I was screaming my head of about a roach. Is there something in their DNA that let's them sleep through EVERYTHING?

Migraines are the worst...and the thought of a snake makes my head hurt even worse:) Those slithering little creatures creep me out.

BTW...I love the smell of rain on concrete...especially during the summer.

monica said...

I too love the smell of rain on concrete! The finding a snake in your backyard is not good - how did it get in there? Maybe the bobcat (are you sure a bobcat?) brought it in.

Have fun with grammy in town!! I can just here the little screams now of excitement!

ModernMom said...

You live in a scary place with all those wild creatures! I don't know if I could handle snakes AND bobcats!

Migraines...oh we could chat for hours about that! Hope you feel better soon.

The Blonde Duck said...

I hate snakes! Ugh!

Have a good trip!

Lady Di said...

Hey, tell grammy I said Hi!! At least you have one visitor right now you like :) Good Friday Five, talk to you sometime this weekend.

Trudy said...

Ohhh...I hope that migraine is better, I know too much about them myself!

Amy said...

I learned that people on the plane get upset way to easy at children.(Not mine)

If you pipe up on the plane about this you get a free drink.

If you put glue in a hole on a mirror it won't work.

Turtles love worms.
