Week in Review & Pretty Pintastic Party #157


TGIF! I hope everyone had an amazing week and is ready for the weekend! We’re back with another weekly Pretty Pintastic Party, but first let’s sneak a peek of the week – in the rearview mirror of This Scattered Life.

Our new series: “Diane’s List” has officially launched! (A tad bit later than expected). Check out our first Customer Relations nightmare featuring GE Appliance Store. And if it moves you to share your own consumer related story, we would love to hear it! The good, the bad, and the ugly – published at your discretion of course – or just for my viewing pleasure.

I hope everyone had a great Mother’s Day! Whether you are fortunate enough to still have your mom, have a slew of your own children, are just starting to think about MAYBE trying to conceive, you perform a mothering role to someone else’s kids or your own fur babies. Nurturing can be tough business and we all deserve a great big hug!

We went foraging for morels on Mother’s Day. We found 17 black morels total. And by “we” I mean that my daughter found the first one, and then her boyfriend found the rest. WHILE MY HUSBAND AND SON WERE SEARCHING FOR ME. Yep, lost in unfamiliar woods for 2 hours. More on that later.

In other news …. last week I was wearing flip-flops — today I am wearing winter boots and even the public library closed “due to inclement weather”. The power and Internet have been on/off all day, and the coffee shops are filled with people trying to get some work done.

Have you ever seen anything so crazy just before Memorial Day?? This photo is from early in the day – it has been coming down steady since last night!
