Warhol Went on a Trip

I play with our gecko Warhol almost every evening. He started doing this thing where he comes to the door if he sees me. He's like a dog that wants to be played with. 

If I open the door, he's right there.

Cute: Yes, but I messed up and left his front doors open on his tank. 

I fell asleep, and woke up to Isaak freaking out. "Mom! What did you do? Warhol's tank is open, and I can't find him anywhere! Where is he?" 

I was half out of it. 

Mica was looking all over the living room for him. Isaak was looking in the kitchen. 

Mica said, "Isaak why in the heck are you looking in there. He couldn't of gone too far!"

Isaak thank goodness found him. He was under Mica's chair in the kitchen. My little gecko wanted to travel. Who can blame him? So do I. 

I'm so glad he was found!

Sunny's tank has been left open as well, but he has a top tank. Leopard geckos climb, but not up on the glass. Sunny couldn't get up to the top of his tank even if he wanted to. 

Have you ever lost a pet? Did you find him or her?

Have You Ever Felt Judged for What You Felt Was Right?

A place I was at on Friday - I made a comment about a guy that was whistling. I said happily, "I always wish I could whistle like you can. I tried so much when I was little, and I just never could put together a tune." His response, "Maybe if you take that mask off you could." One person nearby started laughing and said, "That was good!" 

Here's the thing...they don't know me. I have two relatives that have compromised immune systems from Trisomy 18, I have parts of my nose that is missing from a nose surgery, asthma, allergies, a close friend that just passed away from Covid leaving a 14 and 17 year old behind, and many family members that were or in some cases are nurses that stand with science. I'm wearing that mask for others really more than myself. 

I'm not a Karen that says things like, "You know you really should wear a mask." I just walk around with mine on. I know I can be a carrier no matter what. If my kids have to wear a mask to school, Travis has to wear a mask at the dental lab he works at, I feel that I should do the right thing and wear one too. 

So far I haven't had to get a Covid test at all. I hope to stay that way, for as long as I can. 

I can't shake this feeling that I'm being judged for wearing a mask. Was that comment, or the giggles after necessary? Am I just being too sensitive? To me jokes can be funny, but that didn't humor me. It made me feel bad, for doing what I feel is right all weekend long. 

I found this campaign. I thought it was pretty good concept wise. Even if you aren't a masker. It still has a great idea that's taken in to more than one piece in the campaign. The client is Mucinex.

Have You Started Holiday Shopping?

 On the news I heard that one should start their holiday shopping now. Why? Because there is going to be a lot of shortages this year. I typically shop year round anyhow. 

I found the perfect  stocking stuffer for one of my teen boys! It’s a nail manicure set. I think it’s going to Mica because he takes out preferred nail set all the time. He gets ingrown toe nails a lot. So…time for his own. Plus Isaak got a gold one a few years back. 

It comes with 16 nail tools. I love that it folds up to make it travel size. We’re not going anywhere now, but will in the future. 

There’s also pockets on the inside to store things like q-tips, cotton balls, or a cleaning cloth comes to mind. 

It’s also great that some of the sharp tools have plastic covers on them. I’m all about safety, when it comes to Mica. He’s a big kid, that’s awkward. Ha! 

Where to get this set: 

You can pick up this set on Amazon. It is $13.99. Right now it’s marked to have one day shipping. 

What kind of things do you typically purchase for stocking stuffers?
