back in middle school, a friend and i often quoted the following scene from the movie "dumb and dumber", adapting it to whatever middle school stress we were experiencing. "i forgot my lunch! i didn't understand our math homework last night! OUR PETS' HEADS ARE FALLING OFF!"

while i didn't really care for the movie as a whole, i found this scene so comical in it's pathetic-ness. the way jim carrey falls to the floor when he comes in the door. harry's totally disheveled appearance. the extreme melodrama of it is so great, because, well, sometimes i'm a little dramatic.

and as i sit and ponder tim and i's life, as today is our anniversary, that quote and scene sums things up pretty well for us. i'm joking of course, kind of, but we have had a pretty wild last couple of months and i have taken to sometimes whining and sometimes raving that line when i'm feeling particularly overwhelmed.

i feel like we're still trying to find our footing after the "everyone got sick and both of our cars broke and had to be replaced in a week" circus that was the end of november. then the busyness of the holidays. then continued car issues. and work and life and our pets' heads falling off.

but we're in this crazy adventure together. sometimes tim's harry and i'm lloyd, sometimes i'm harry, in mannerisms and appearance. i would say  here's to hoping this next year of marriage is quiet and peaceful and uneventful, but considering "give birth" is tentatively penciled in on the june calendar, i don't think that's going to happen.

cheers to our little circus and another year!


  1. This is funny.

    I think my brother had every single one of the Ace Ventura movies memorized. I actually have some terribly incriminating photo evidence of this, but since I would incriminate myself as well I am going to restrain from sharing.

    I appreciate your correct use of the apostrophe in pets'.

    1. thanks. it really strained my brain to make sure all of those apostrophes were right : )

  2. Okay, apparently I am really confused. Wasn't there a bird whose head fell off in one of the Ace Ventura movies too? I just realized your clip was Dumb and Dumber. Sorry for all the comments.

  3. This made me laugh, thank you. It's your good sense of humor that will get you through this crazy life.
