Skank Ho

Friday night Dean fried fish & some of the our neighbors came over. Suzy got a Margaritaville machine for her birthday last week & she wanted to try it out.
Someone didn't realize there was an on/off switch. For once it wasn't me. I actually pointed it out when Suzy claimed that my outlet didn't work.
After a little miscommunication with some measurements we just about perfected the Grey Goose Slush that's sold in France at Epcot. Sooooo good!!

I've been told I worry a lot. No surprise there. My mom worries all the time about everything so I get it honestly. I've also been told that if I don't have something to worry about I make something up. That is simply not true. I'm so much better than I used to be. I've come to understand that most things are beyond my control & worrying doesn't change that. That being said I'm not sure how this conversation came up Friday night. I'm a bit concerned that I'll die before Dean. I guess concerned isn't really the right word. I've thought about what will happen if I do. Somehow this same discussion came up last weekend when I was at the LSU game. My friends Jill & Allison have never had this conversation with their hubby's. Anyway, I don't want Dean to remarry if something happens to me. My friends are all in agreement that I'm wrong. They all want their hubby's to remarry because they want them to be happy & not lonely, blah, blah, blah. The problem I have with that scenario is this - if Dean remarries & the second wife dies before him who will he be buried by?? Or what if he dies before the 2nd wife? She surely wouldn't bury him by his first wife would she? I don't want to be buried by myself. Yes, I know I won't be there, it's just the thought. My friends all say they just don't want their husbands to have kids with anyone else. Well, we don't have kids. So what happens if he has kids with his 2nd wife then dies? You know those kids will bury him with their mom.  My friend Sheri shared a story. Her grandma died last year at the age of 98 1/2. She long ago buried her husband & a boyfriend. She buried them next to each other & when she died she was buried between the two. My response to this? I DON'T WANT TO BE BURIED BY SOME SKANK HO. Of course thinking back about that I can see where that may be a little unrealistic. I mean after all, I'm not a skank ho & Dean is a really good person so he certainly wouldn't marry a skank ho. So, I guess that's one less thing for me to worry about.



  1. HaHa! I just asked Gary what we should do about this and he said he doesn't want to be buried. He wants to be cremated. AllrightyThen!

    He wants us to use the money we'd spend on a casket on beer at his funeral. oh my word.

    That marg machine looks amazing!! And HUGE.

  2. You are funny. My husband and I never actually had that conversation. But you got me thinking now...No skank Ho is living in my house, that's for sure!

  3. I am rolling in laughter over here! Just how many of those margaritas did you drink before you wrote this?
    We have laughed about this subject before. My husband claims he'd have to become a polygamist if he remarried because no one woman could possibly replace me! LOL! I'm still trying to decide if this is a compliment or something I should worry about! LOL!!!
    Try not to dwell on it too much, Tracy. Thanks for the laugh!

  4. OMG you're too funny! I guess y'all just need to get cremated! ;)

  5. I am Laughing my Boo-Taaay off! You are halarious! How many BEVERAGES did you have? LOL!


  6. OMG Traci. Goodness. Although I do think I myself make up things to worry about. Just admit you do that too and it'll be easier than arguing with people.

    No offense to other women, seriously, but let's face it, any woman that he were to marry other than your own self, yes, she is a skank ho. It's just how us women think. hahahhahaha. Even if she's not a skank ho, to us in our minds, she IS a skank ho.

  7. Traci,
    You are so funny....I have been told to, many times by my family that I worry too much. And I do. But that's just me and it's probably never gonna change. And if I die before my husband, he tells me that he is not getting married again. I bet he will....and I have told him that. I would say our daughter will keep him in check. lol....

  8. Ha ha! You crack me up!!! I've often thought about if I died before my hubby - but my fear is what would happen to my children. Who would be their mother-figure? That scared the beejeezus out of me!!!

  9. So funny girl! My mom knew that another woman would "get her hooks into him(my dad) six months after she died". She was right on the money ~ men cannot live alone after being married! My dad's second wife has since died and was buried with her family. When my mom died, my dad bought two side by side spots at the cemetery. Make Dean promise to do the same should you die first and you have nothing to worry about!

  10. I want a machine like that!!! I'd be using it all the time!

    I actually have a huge fear for when I die! I am not so much afraid of dying, but what would happen after. My ex would get full custody of our daughter (he is not exactly on the mentally stable side and tends to make REALLY bad choices ALL of the time), and that would be horrible. My fiance and I plan on getting married and having a child of our own. But then that's a whole other thing to worry about. My fiance makes pretty good decisions (MOST of the time!) but you always worry as a parent that if he re-marries, how will they treat my child? So I would actually have to be worrying about more than one child in more than scenario and it just scares me to death {no pun intended!}. It's amazing the kinds of things that keep as night, huh?

    By the way, thank you so much for leaving me that comment letting me know that my post still showed up in your reader. I found it in mine, also...I guess it just arrived a few hours later. Although, I'm pretty sure that once the transfer is done with my blog, the posts will no longer show up. So be sure to stop by the new site re-follow if you can! I know it's a pain but you are awesome and I definitely don't want to lose you as a reader {other people it's not as a big of a deal! Lol}. Talk to you soon! :-)

  11. You are so funny, Traci, thinking about these things already. Me, I am a happy go lucky gal so I don't like to think of problems....Christine

  12. How did you know I needed this laugh this morning. Thank you = )

  13. OK girlfriend, others are asking how much did you have to drink before you wrote this, I'm thinking you haven't had enough to drink. I am hubby's 3rd wife, yes 3rd! And I am not a skank ho, but the first two are, especially the second! lol. Hubby says he will die before me because he is 12 yrs older than me. I pick at him all the time when I am re-doing something saying "I am re-doing this for your next wife so that she doesn't have to re-do anything. When hubby and I got engaged he lived in a mansion (as the people around town called it) that he and the second wife built together. I flat out refused to live in it becuase I didn't want "her" house! He put it up for sale and it sold in one week! So gosh, so long and drawn out just to say I don't care if I am not buried by him, but I am kinda like Debbie, I don't want some skank ho in MY house, and she better not mistreat my dog!! Oh my, hubby and I gotta talk about this when he gets home!!!

  14. Omigosh I love your blog! Not sure how I got here, but I'm so glad I did. I'm your newest follower and your home is beautiful!!!
