It Doesn't Matter...

Hi Lovelies,

I had some trouble this week with what to blog about. There's a lot going on but at the same time there's too much to choose from.

So I'm going with some small observations that I noticed this week.

It doesn't matter how many times your dog bites a bee and gets stung in the mouth. They will do it again.

It doesn't matter how many times you tell your child they're an adult now. They don't want to be.

It doesn't matter how many times you tell your roommate that she can't have a squirrel. She will ask.

It doesn't matter how many times you tell your friend that the racket with the wires holds electricity. He will still stick his finger in it and get shocked.

It doesn't matter how many times you tell the guy from Portland ( Benny ) not to eat the blackberries. He still does.

It doesn't matter that the mailman comes everyday. The dogs still scare the crap out of everyone barking at him.

It doesn't matter how many times you say you want to do something. Just do it, times a wastin!

It doesn't matter how many times you tell the ones you love 'I love you'. They will never forget.

Well that ended on a sweet and sappy note!

Be Brave and try new things!

See Ya

Bedbugs and Payback!

Hi Lovelies!

We've had a full house in the past couple of weeks. T, Craig and the baby were staying with us for a bit because the apartment building they lived in had a bad case of bed bugs that were using Peanut as a buffet. They got rid of the bed, had an exterminator come in that told them (thank goodness) that the bugs were confined to the bed. Oh happy day!

We're lucky we have enough space not that it mattered because we would have made room for them anyway. As they searched for a new bed Sese's boyfriend decided to get her a Hedgehog...a hedgehog! Ok she's cute I'll give her that and with Salt CONSTANTLY asking for a Squirrel  (don't ask) this could be bad! She'll show up one day holding a feral squirrel over me in my sleep with a giant smile  "I caught one!"

After having so much time with Peanut I'm sure his Nana was going through withdrawals without him around. Since he's back at home now, the rest of us are going through the withdrawal symptoms but we can laugh at his dad until he comes back again. Craig likes to trick people...all the time... so we turned it around on him this time and captured it on video. Unfortunately I didn't get all of the set up but the outcome was so worth it and I got that at least!

Craig tried to spike a bottle of water with salt so that when Choo got up in the middle of the night he would get a mouthful of salty water. He came up after Choo had gone to bed and asked me if he would get mad about the joke. I told him to leave it and that it would be fine. After he went downstairs I went to the fridge and dumped out the salt water then refilled it with fresh water.

In the morning I told Choo what happened and he said it was funny because he was going to drink out of it but there was so much salt in it the water was cloudy. He just thought that someone had put Crystal Light in it so he put it back. Choo started considering payback and it went on from there. At first we were trying to figure out how to pack his Slurpee straw with cinnamon and I figured the punishment should fit the crime so salt was the main ingredient.

When Craig came home T offered to go get him a Slurpee while he took a shower. She came back and the salt was added to his drink then we all sat patiently as we waited for him to seek refreshment.

There's lots coming up this month so I'll have more to share!
