We have now added one new human and one new puppy to our collection of beings that we live with. Our zoo gets bigger. I’m totally happy about both additions.
The first one you know about already. It’s my mommy, Rocky. <insert huge sappy grin here> She seems to be settling in well and we’re having a great time burning up the roads and shopping and all that great stuff. We have trashed a whole giant container of coffee so far this week and we’re making a whopping dent in the mail order coffee I’ve been storing up for months. Honestly, I’m going to crash like a 747 eventually, but for the moment I’m having the time of my life!
The second addition is a bulldog/hound-dog mix. It’s a big fat rolly polly little thing that is absolutely darlin to look at and it makes my uterous clench just to hold him. He is satisfying all my maternal instincts at the moment. I have to keep a minute by minute check on myself just to keep from going to get his two fat little sisters and bringing them home too. That’s just what we need, two more dogs. I’m fast becoming the crazy dog lady of the hill already.
My Dearest Husband has declared this puppy HIS. He named him Jeremiah Johnson. Only MDH is allowed to feed and water him. This is because the rest of us overwhelm all of the animals with our eternal presence and MDH is left out in the cold because he works at night and sleeps during the day. This limits his ability to be around during the normal “playing with the animals” hours of the day. Therefore, we are not allowed to associate with JJ unless it is in MDH’s presence.
However, as I stated previously, MDH sleeps during the day. <insert evil grin here> That big fat rolly polly little baby needs things during the day sometimes! I’m sure he does. (looks all innocent and stuff) He cries. He’s a baby and he’s lonely. If he doesn’t get some company he will fail to thrive. This is not good. Hence, for MDH’s sake and for the sake of MDH’s baby puppy, I make the huge sacrifice of spending a lil old bit of time with that fat baby for him. I only do it because I love him. I wouldn’t do that for just anyone!
His Highness The Buddha and Princess Bella have both gotten great grades on their report cards. Or is it progress reports? They send me too many grades home. I can’t keep up with what is what. And they feel compelled to change things too. Used to be that you got letter grades. A’s were good. E’s were very bad. Now S’s are good. E’s can be good too. Maybe E’s are bad, who knows? All I know is that Princess Bella’s teacher was all smiles and all her grades were either S’s (I assumed from the smiles that these were good) and A’s. And The Buddha’s name was in the newspaper for honor roll so I also assume that his grades were good, although I have no earthly idea how in hell he does it.
I feel a party coming on. Not for any reason really, just because I want one. I think this one will be a hill party. We have lots of kids up here now. And my mommy is here to help me get it all ready.
And OMG……I found two, count em, two grey hairs in my head! They were really pretty ones. Not all dirty grey, but white grey. I kinda like em. I liked them so much when I found them that I pulled them out and saved them in an envelope for all time. I think I will leave the replacements there when they grow back in. I’m fifty years old now, after all. I guess it’s time for my hair to start getting a little grey in it.
Once it goes good and grey, I’ll go ahead and lose some weight because I won’t need the fat to fluff out those pesky wrinkles around my eyes anymore. And I’ll stop wearing my hair in a pony tail too. It was time to stop doing that anyway. I only did it because it pulled the wrinkles out of my face and I had so many of them that I was almost wearing my face in a pony tail with just a little bit of hair hanging of the bottom of it! THAT was just getting creepy.
However, I have started to think that maybe I need to start wearing my rear end in pigtails.
