Mimi the WEED FIEND! (hahaha...it rhymes!)

Mom and I took Mimi into the backyard to show her all of the cool blooming things going on. Mom is really proud that she hasn't killed her Lilacs (yet).

While Mimi was admiring the Burning bushes, we noticed that she started "picking" at something...
"What the heck, Mimi?"

Mimi then confessed that while she LOVED living in Arizona and having gravel and cactus in her yard instead of grass and plants....she really missed WEEDING and said that she found it THERAPUTIC! (WTF?). She then ASKED mom if she could keep weeding the back flowerbeds!
"Ummm...Mom? Is Mimi for REAL?"

Mom told her to "knock herself out" and even gave her a trash bag so she could continue her "weeding therapy"...

Wow....if Mimi thinks that weeding is THERAPY...she's going to be in TIP TOP mental shape when she goes home!!!
Just LOOK at this pile of pent up angst and issues!!!!

Mimi even continued her "Therapy sessions" into the NIGHT!
Wow...the things we do for mental health!

I went outside to make sure Mimi could find her way back to the house in the dark.
We aren't sure how this "Weed Therapy" works...but Mimi seemed to really like it!

If anyone else would like a session of Weed Therapy...just let us know! We're sure we'll have PLENTY more in a week or so!!!!!

Whoa! Mommy would like to know if we can borrow Mimi for a few days? We have weeds in places where no weeds have gone before. We're sure Mimi would find our yard very therapeutic. We won't even charge her anything!

Pug love from,

If Mimi needs more therapy, just let us know. I'm pretty sure the momma could help her out!! Humans, they are constant wonders!!!



BRUTUS said...

The dandelions are growing five times faster than the grass here. We could use about 10 Mimi's I think!

Lots of peeps find weed therapeutic.


Seriously, Mimi can get some serious peace of mind in my backyard.


Yoda & Brutus said...

hahaha!! We are laughing at Pearl's comment!!

We have plenty of weeds in the flower beds so if Mimi needs more therapy she is more than welcome :)

Mom has been trying to figure out how all the weeds popped up so fast in her flower beds :(

Also - wanted to let you know that it was ok to that you borrowed pictures - we like to share :)

Pugs & Kisses,

What kind of weed are you guys giving to Mimi to get her to weed your yard from sun up to sun down? I'm just sayin'... Seems kinda fishy to me.

Either that or Laura is pulling the old, "I promise to let you lick the icing bowl if you weed the garden" trick again. She's a cold hearted &#$@*! I tell ya! Mom is convinced we need a family vacation out to Indiana just to get one of her red velvet cupcakes!

Your bud,

PLEASE, send Mimi over here! Mom would love you and her forever! After last summer with nothing but rain, our weeds overgroweth!

"Weed therapy?"

Isn't that something they do in California, not Arizona?


Becky said...

I've done a little weed therapy a long time ago and it didn't have anything to do with my yard. Now it's just the daisy weeds and dandelions that I do. The weed fiend was a real eye cathcer!

Apollo said...

Wow - looks like Mimi has enough potential clients that she could start a business. It's scary to think about what she'd do with a weedeater!

Sequoia & Petunia said...

Haha no we will let Mimi keep weeding we pass!

Rachel said...

Sadly, I share the same mental malady as Mimi. I actually weed my neighbor's flower beds because mine are too small for all the therapy I need. There is something about it that is just incredibly relaxing. What can I say? I'm a crazy lady....

Stacy/Brutus/Miley said...

Uhg, My mom does the same thing....
