Marvelous Monday with Lexi!

#MarvelousMonday with Lexi: July 23rd edition

Happy marvelous Monday everyone! As you can see, I saw my groomer, Miss Ashley, last week. She hooked me up with a fabulous new hairdo and topped it off with this gorgeous pink bow.

You aren't going to believe what Mommy bought me when she went grocery shopping last Friday; blueberries. Well... They aren't ALL for me but she is sharing a few of them with me by mashing them up with my pumpkin and adding the blueberry/pumpkin mixture to my food. I don't like eating the blueberries by themselves but they are so awesome with my pumpkin!

I also get to hang out with Mommy a lot this week because she's off Monday through Thursday. This is a good thing as she was running into problems at work. She says a lot of people have been particularly rude and downright weird lately. It's as if they go to the grocery store to put other people down so they can feel better. It must be a "human thing" because I don't understand what she's talking about. When I'm feeling unhappy, I want to be left alone or I seek out others for scratches, pets, kisses, and loves. 

She's also having issues with co-workers. One of her co-workers wasn't a good cashier so he was moved to carry-out and bagging. He tried to tell her that he was moved because he was so good at his job. Mommy didn't tell him otherwise, she said that the person who is training the arrogant ass can break it to him. Then, last night, one of Mommy's co-workers accused one of the carry-out guys of stealing from her when he emptied the wastebasket at her register while she was on break. She said he took her cigarettes and money while she was on break. Mommy saw him empty the co-worker's wastebasket and he didn't take anything. Mommy also noticed that the co-worker was carrying her pack of cigarettes when she returned from break and wondered how the carry-out guy could steal her cigarettes when she had them with her.

Mommy told their manager what she saw but the manager made some kind of flimsy excuse about "not knowing the whole story," and he didn't stop the carry-out guy from buying the other cashier a pack of cigarettes to replace the "stolen" pack. Mommy's very upset that the manager allowed the other cashier to accuse the guy when the evidence clearly indicates that the accusation was false. Mommy's pretty sure that the other cashiers are going to bite her because she stood up for the carry-out guy, but she's not sorry she said something because it was the right thing to do. 

Uncle Mike says Mommy worries too much about what other people think and Mommy says that work is hard enough without being bitten by co-workers. Mommy is going to talk to her doctors and see how she can bite back, without drawing blood, when they bite her. I think Mommy should take me to work with her so I can tell her when to bare her teeth to resolve a problem, and when to just lift a leg and pee on it. Mommy is such a silly human sometimes and I often wonder how she managed to survive as long as she has without me!

Currently Reading

When Mommy isn't finding trouble to get into at work, she's writing or reading.

ZORAIDA GREY AND THE VOODOO QUEEN by Sorchia DuBois on Goodreads
Magic may save Zoraida’s skin, but what about her heart?

Zoraida Grey needs help. With the witchy Logan clan holding her best friend hostage in a haunted Scottish castle, she can’t trust anyone—certainly not beguiling but dangerous Shea Logan. And Al, her overprotective boyfriend, doesn’t believe in magic.

Only one creature strikes fear in the blackened hearts of the Logan witches. Trouble is Jock disappeared five centuries ago leaving a trail of destruction across the Gulf of Mexico. Now he’s stepped into a steaming pile of Voodoo.

Can Zoraida drag wayward Jock back to Scotland? And what’s she supposed to do with two men who promise completely different futures?

A Scottish wizard, stripped naked and painted blue—a Voodoo priestess bent on immortality—a yacht-load of Caribbean pirates. What can possibly go wrong?
Mommy says that she is almost halfway through this book and she will be finished with it soon. That's good because she has promised to finish another book before its release day.

Wags and licks!
