Furry Black Creature Invading My Home

I have a new creature in my house.
Look at it.
It's the black furry one with the irresistible eyes and the softest ears and the cutest muzzle that gives the sweetest, gentlest of kisses.

It keeps my feet warm while I am sleeping and plays joyfully and lovingly with my boys.
It makes me smile.
 It is a girl.
 Her name is Lola-Roo.
And I love her.
********dear husband,the fact that I said I love her in no way relieves you of taking her outside at the crack-a-dawn, cleaning her messes, fixing the fences or teaching her to walk on a leash without removing my arms from their sockets.


Farewell my Home Companion!

I recently got a notice in the mail that my subscription renewal to Mary Engelbreit Home Companion Magazine cannot be fulfilled because it is being discontinued. I am so sad. I am sososososososososososo sooo soooo SOOoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo sad. They are replacing it with the Martha Stewart Magazine. Eh. Siiiigh. Oh Martha, if only I loved your Magazine like I love my Home Companion but it does not even begin to compare. I'm sorry Martha I really am but I want my Home Companion.........sniffle. This sort of thing happens to me constantly like whenever we go to a restaurant specifically because I am craving something and they just happen to be out of the ONE item I am craving. This is an ongoing source of amusement for my husband because it seriously happens EVERYWHERE we go. Same for everything else. If I find a fragrance I like, they will discontinue it, a hair product, a lotion, a line of make-up......better not catch wind that I like it or they will take the sonoffagun off the market. By the way, Zaxby's no longer serves chicken salad. %$#@!!! But my Mary Engelbreit magazine? WHY MARY? WHY do you forsaketh me??I miss you already.


Think my Arse Is Growing Moss

I think in my former life I was a bear. Or some other creature that hibernates in winter. I mean seriously, I ran myself ragged in the months of Oct. Nov. Dec. preparing for all thing winter and ate absolutely everything in sight as if putting it away around my belly and arse for emergency storage. In January I slowed down and now I am at a complete stand still. If I didn't have to go to the real job I just might sit still long enough to grow moss. Like a tree sloth. I'm tellin ya, Spring better get here quick or I am in trouble.
Mad-Boo has done her part to get me motivated to do at least a little something and involved me in a game of BLOG tag. The RULES of this Blog Tag Game are simple: Choose the sixth image out of your sixth picture folder from your computer and blog about it. Then tag six more people to do the same! But I am a rebel and a bit squeamish about the excessive 6's if ya know what I mean. I'm also one of those kids who used to change the rules to suit my personal needs. So I dusted off my files and chose this random pic. It was taken in the SPRING when all the lovely flowers were blooming at Look Out Mountain, Chattanooga, TN. On SPRING break. These are my precious children showing some brotherly love. In the SPRING. Did I mention that?

Ok now for the tagging part. I choose:


You're it! Whew. I'm gonna go lay back down now. I SO need a laptop.
