April: A Month of Shenanigans

Most of 2022 has sucked (for me) but April was a great month. We traveled to California, met some online friends and had many, many adventures.

Yesterday, Mr. and Mrs. Moth came to stay the night and get into some real shenanigans with us. We hit the bowling alley in town on the request of Mr. C&M who was randomly craving attempting to bowl again. We did this YEARS ago and he was absolutely awful at it, and I made fun of him a lot. But if you play a lot of Wii Sports and now Switch sports, apparently it CAN translate to getting better at real bowling because we didn’t have to put up the bumpers this time. The Moths hadn’t played in years either (although Mr. Moth had played more recently than any of us) and they declared this was extra good fun and we need to do this on the regular.

We attempted to go to a Mexican restaurant that I had heard really good things about but unfortunately, they were not doing any dine in on the day that we decided to show up. We selected a decent looking burger joint that exceeded our expectations and also had margaritas.

Cranberry Orange and Mixed Berry. Delicious but lacking in alcohol I felt.

After that we went home and played Switch Sports bowling which was just not nearly as exciting as real bowling anymore. πŸ˜› Then, things got really competitive, and we played some Mario Party. Moth’s present game is always on-point, and I received some mighty sweet new swag:

April Reading:

I reviewed Half a War.

4 out of 5 stars – I won this book in a giveaway hosted by Tammy at Books, Bones & Buffy. When I couldn’t decide which book I wanted, I asked Tammy to send me one of her favorites and she was kind enough to oblige. I thoroughly enjoyed my ride through space to unravel a murder mystery on the outer edge of the galaxy. I haven’t decided if I will review it or not but here it be. I recommend checking it out.

The end of April also brought my school semester to an end. I did WAY better in Intro to Probability and Statistics than I ever dreamed I would. Math isn’t my best subject. I can do it, but I hate life while I do it. I actually enjoyed this class, so I think that says something about both the teacher and my dedication to learning. I have not had more than 3 weeks off of school at a time since I started back last summer so this round, I’m taking the summer off and continuing in the Fall. I am super excited to have the summer free to do literally whatever I want. (Still have to show up to work though unfortunately.)

What adventures do you have planned for this summer?

Here’s Zelda for your extra dose of cute:

  1. Wow, it’s amazing to me that your biggest issue was the lack of alcohol. I’m glad you had a good Aprilβ€”I hope May is just as good!! (only with more alcohol;)

    1. I’m just not sure there was ANY alcohol to be honest. I didn’t feel anything after drinking it and I don’t drink all that often. A bit of a lightweight. It tasted damn good though.
      Fingers crossed about May. I hope May treats you well too!

      1. Well… I’m told the best alcoholic drinks are the ones you don’t notice the alcohol in at all:)

  2. I don’t think I ever knew your cat’s name. Or see a close-up picture of her. She does exist!

    Okay, and I totally laughed out loud at “we didn’t have to put up the bumpers this time.” Your poor spouse! LOL. He’s a total treat. I have to say, every time I bowl my back muscles hurt the next day. That crap will get you if you’re a vigorous bowler. I think Nick typically needs a stretcher. He took bowling three times in college (reasons unknown to me) and gets a bit competitive. However, if that’s your jam we can do it in the future.

    2022 has to get better. It HAS to. Well, except tomorrow when I have both a dentist appointment and a minor surgery to get some skin removed.

    1. He was SO bad the last time we went bowling and got so mad he never wanted to play again. (We last went 12 years ago??) This time he did pretty good thanks to his video game practice lol. I tend to get competitive too. I shit talk Rob a LOT but I’m always on Dani’s side. πŸ˜› We would definitely be down to hit some bowling with you guys. Nick will have to take it easy on us as we have no training. πŸ˜‰

      I really hope 2022 does get better! ❀

      1. I can’t picture Rob getting so mad that he refuses to ever bowl again! But maybe Rob of 12 years ago was a totally different human. I know I was.

  3. I’m so glad you had a great birthday month! ❀ We had an absolute blast celebrating with you guys. And I agree–the margaritas were tasty, but definitely lacking in the booze department. I'm so pumped for you to have the summer off from school! πŸ˜€ Gonna have to get into ALL the shenanigans.

  4. Zelda has a fine nose for booping β™₯ Those margaritas look amazing. It sucks they didn’t have enough alcohol though. What’s the point of a fruity drink if not to hide a butt ton of alcohol in it?
