RIP Sheila G. Zebo 06.03.20-12.17.20

 RIP Sheila G. Zebo 06.03.20-12.17.20

After a valiant struggle, Sheila (of Pittsburgh) died peacefully in her sleep of SNOVID, surrounded by her family, who lovingly referred to her as SheZebo.
She weathered many storms in her short life, and is survived by her partner Al Di Grill, and numerous ottoman, rugs and other outdoor patio items.

Her loving partner, Al D. Grill

While she was struck down much too soon and still in her prime, she provided countless hours of comfort both day and night to her family during the pandemic. Family fondly remembers the hours spent in her shade, while floating in their Aldi pool listening to the Hamilton soundtrack.

Viewing hours are between dawn and dusk, and a service will be held Saturday 12.19.20, when she will be sent to her final resting place in the recycling bin. In lieu of flowers, please send Aldi Peanut Butter Cups-they were her favorite.
For the Ham Fans lol: Sheila did not give away her shot to keep us all satisfied, and she was non-stop. When I saw her collapsed, the world turned upside down, I felt helpless and I asked myself what did I miss? I screamed stay alive! I should have told her to meet me inside and that would have been enough, and now I'm so blue. I should not have said no to this as our deck was the room where it happened. She was our right hand man and like a hurricane she had blown us all away. We know you were our obedient servant, best of gazebos and best of women. If we take a break, then wait for it-she'll be back! Sheila, history has its eyes on you and what comes next. We thought the world was wide enough and that we had more time with you. Raise a glad to Sheila, who taught us how to say goodbye. We will tell your story.

Aldi Fight Club

What in the name of all that is holy was goin on at Aldi this morning?!?!  I showed up at 9 am and the line to get in was like 30 deep!  I figured it was panic buying bc there isn't that much exciting in the ad (my opinion anyway lol)

There was nobody in the AOS-which worked for me lol  And I only bought 2 of the chocolate raspberry coffees (you're welcome! 🤣) Altho I did help myself to the Starbucks peppermint mocha too hehehe  

PEOPLE WERE SUPER GRUMPY & MEAN Y'ALL!!  Like just bitching and making snide comments to others.  Some old lady tried to sass me-you don't know me! lol I ain't got time for that nonsense, I kept on trucking. This poor old lady was struggling to pick up something and the guy next to her wouldn't even help her.  I yelled out "M'am do you need help?" and was gonna help her, and *finally* the guy helped her!  Smh.  Like I almost cried how mean people were being to each other-an Aldi employee was even snippy to somebody!!  If that was my first time there, I might have assumed that is the way people are and not want to shop there again.

And then when I got home from Aldi, even my cat was a jerk to me-I was washing my hands, and he snuck up behind me and attacked my leg!!   

In his defense, I was singing lol  Ironically, I was singing "Happy Birthday" to him, because when I wash my hands and I sing it to myself I feel self-centered, so I usually sing it to whatever cat is nearby lol

The cats somehow changed the bathroom scale from pounds to kilograms. I tried a million times and I cannot figure out how to switch it back.

To be honest, do yourself a favor and weigh yourself in kg.  It makes me feel like a super model lol


Oh great.  I noticed that Google Street View updated the picture of our house.

It just so happens the Google car came by the week we had remodeled the bathroom, and there was a bunch of garbage out at the curb.  

Now we look like the junky neighbor until the Google car comes around again in five years!! lol

Four times in the past week or so he has been napping totally chill on one of our laps, and then allofasudden completely out of nowhere he jumps up like five feet in the air!  

Photo credit: me : )

Then he walks around super jittery for like an hour afterwards!  So bizarre.

I need a new cell phone so bad because mine no longer holds a charge so it always gotta be plugged in. At this point it is basically a landline with really bad reception.

Photo credit

However, I refuse to get a new one though because the new iPhones are ready to drop and I heard a rumor that one of them will be purple!!!

Photo credit

So until they drop, here's me sitting next to a wall like it is the olden days.

I am soooo grateful for left-handed scissors!

Photo credit

I know it doesn't seem like such a big deal; however, once you develop blisters from using right-handed scissors, you definitely appreciate being able to cut things without the ache and pain!

And I love that God knit me together left-handed..I assume it serves a larger purpose than just making sure I always sit at the furthest left outside corner of a table so as not to "bump elbows" with everybody else sitting at the table lol

I ask my Google assistant what time it is so often she started telling me it is time to get a watch!
She also started not-so-subtly putting ads for watches in my Facebook feed.
Photo credit

I told her if she didn't knock it off I was going to replace her with Alexa and Siri.

So here I am, with no internet, sitting in the dark, wondering if my Google Assistant hacked into the electric grid.

Well played, Google Assistant, well played.
