Hey friends, how was your weekend? Last week felt like it just crawled by, and then the weekend seemed to end before it started. We spent Saturday doing what we do every week – decrapifying our living room. We accumulate ridiculous amounts of crap over the course of the week, like junk mail and the countless papers Kaitlyn brings home from school – look Mama, I made a row of “T”s, look Mama, I got a star on my math paper. I appreciate that teachers want us to see what’s she’s doing in school, but the amount of paper is ridiculous. And recyclable
Chris also helped Kaitlyn pick up and re-dress all of her American Girl and similar-sized dolls, and I finally learned why little girls are always taking the clothes off their dolls and leaving them naked. According to Kaitlyn, if she’s making up a game or story and the doll doesn’t have the RIGHT OUTFIT, the one it does have needs to come off. I mean come on, who wears their best party dress to bed, right? I’m also happy we have this big plastic tub/basket thing that all the dolls fit right into. Geez, that Fancy Nancy doll at the front left of the tub? I reviewed that on MomReviews and hosted a giveaway back in 2008! I’m happy that Kaitlyn is so careful with her dolls.
My dog has been acting strange lately, it has me a little worried. He’s always been high-strung thanks to being raised literally in the middle of nowhere by my MIL, before we took him in shortly before her passing in 2006. He has always been overly attached to me, following me from room to room and even trying to get into the bathroom with me, but lately he’s seemed, well, upset or something. And then on Saturday I made tuna salad and put some of the tuna juice in little bowls for him and the cat like I always do, but when I called him to come and get it, he wouldn’t move. So I walked up to him patting my leg, saying “come on, Elvis”, and he still wouldn’t move. So I reached out to pet him and he ran into the bedroom and jumped on the bed, shaking. I have no idea what was going on in his doggy head! Kaitlyn, being the little nurturer that she is, decided he looked “cold” last night, so she did this, and Elvis just laid there. He’s eating normally, going potty normally, so I think he’s fine. Just a little spoiled, maybe.
Tomorrow is Ryan’s 16th birthday! I couldn’t believe it when he told me that all he wants for his birthday is $15 to contribute to a Kickstarter Fund. Seriously! There’s this web comic he follows and practically lives for called Homestuck, and the Kickstarter Fund is to get a video game made based on the movie – in two years! And THAT’S what my son wants for his 16th birthday. As for driving, he is completely not interested. So at least we aren’t thousands of a dollars for a car Who’s got two thumbs and is a completely awesome person? THIS GUY!
So, that’s what’s going on around here. How are all of you?
