Greetings From La La Land

I’ve made it through the first week of summer vacation and I’m feeling better than ever. Perhaps it’s because I am easing into it by having the kids in camp this week, which is pretty much like having them in school, only they come home tired and psyched and don’t have any homework. I enrolled them […]

Natasha Wang Keeps Getting Mistaken For Me …

… it happens all the time. I had recent uptick in my Process of Elimination project after a rather lengthy hiatus. You’d want a break, too, after getting rid of crap every day for a year! There is part of me that resists finishing projects, I’m not sure where it comes from but suffice to […]

Litter Kwitter Modification

I am blogging from a woman’s “retreat” up in the mountains. I’ve always struggled with girly retreats because I don’t think I’m feminine enough. While female, I don’t get into super girly stuff and girly stuff is what most ladies’ retreats are all about. I think the condition of my feet should be indicative of […]

I Made You A Thing For Your Birthday, Dad!

It’s my dad’s birthday and again I have deprived him of his greatest wish … to have something to hold over me for a whole year. That thing being me forgetting his birthday. Sorry Dad, not this year. I made something for your birthday! You can stop avoiding the telephone and email. I know you get a notice […]

And Just Like That … They Grew Up

I love having friends that get me. Like My Pregnant Friend or Mistress of the Timpano or her preferred moniker, Awesome Sauce, which is by far the most appropriate. She is completely awesome. She’s preggers with her first baby and has come to me for advice. Crazy, right? So I brought up the very important […]

Litter Kwitter: Amber Alert!

That Fucking Cat has been doing great with the Litter Kwitter on the green setting, which is essentially a modified litter box set to fit inside the toilet. But she’s getting the hang of it. Aside from occasionally turning around and peeing off the edge onto the floor (grrr) she’s accepted it as her place […]

Litter Kwitter: Day 1

A long time ago I said I was going to toilet train That Fucking Cat. Then the holidays hit and I didn’t think it would be a good idea to take one bathroom off-line while I had guests staying with us. I finished the clumping litter she uses in her regular box and decided that now […]

Happy To See You (7377-7391)

I was about to craft a cynical post about stupid shit that makes me cranky, my milieu if you will, but then I got some really good news and I just couldn’t work up a good head of hatred and anger. Not when my friend is HAVING A BABY!!! I love babies, which may come […]

2013 In Review (7361)

I got this annual report today from WordPress. The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog. Here’s an excerpt: The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 90,000 times in 2013. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about […]

Will It Shred (7357-7360)

I’ve had quite a weekend, nothing fun I assure you. My dad and step-mom are arriving shortly so I need to get this up and go. Tabby is still in England so I have Chiquita. I’m in love with that stupid dog. This video is for her. Sorry about the strange framing. Chicky is having […]
