The morning started off with Freak-Dog, who will be three years old next month, seeing herself in the mirror for the first time and trying to attack her reflection.
Brilliant, I tell you.
This is what we deal with if she sees another dog while were out on a walk. Or in a car. Or one that passes by the house.
Kirk is now in charge of choosing all pets from here on out. I pick lemons. Cute, brain-damaged lemons.
- I wish Nate would eat potatoes. What kid doesn't love mashed potatoes?? Or twice baked potatoes?? Scalloped? I don't understand it. If we force him to eat a bite, he'll gag and, well, you get the idea...
- Selling my sewing machine at a garage sale a couple of years ago was S T U P I D. I paid a measly $20 for it and because I couldn't figure out how to thread the bobbin (sounds like a yo-yo trick) I completely gave up. I'd really like to take a sewing class now - because I'm having to hem my pants with that iron-on tape stuff. Actually, I think I should be hand-stitching hems - but we're talking about track pants (is that what you call them?? the nylon-y pants with the stripes down the side that I love because they have an elastic waist?)
- I'm clinging to the chance that we'll see snow this weekend. CLINGING - I'm not ready for winter to be over, and frankly, I'm a little peeved that we bought a season pass at Meadows and there hasn't been much skiing.
- We've lived in HR for EIGHT months. That's crazy. I can't believe how quickly time passes!
- Apparently, Russian Tea Cakes and peanut butter Chex Mix aren't calorie or fat free. Who knew? (See above comment about the elastic waist pants). Also, I guess they're not meant to replace meals nor to be grazed on constantly BETWEEN meals.
- This is a great column that articulates my feelings exactly about the behavior of some on Tuesday. I'm NOT an Ann Coulter fan but in this instance she nailed it. Please take a couple of minutes to read it; the second page in particular.
- Hayden is taking a class next term called "Reducing Your Carbon Footprint". Oh yes.
(pause) I start cracking up whenever I think about it :)
Couple of thoughts on this:
First, I don't ever want to hear that schools don't have enough funding. If there's time and money to teach a class like that, then you have PLENTY of funding.
Second... I'd be happy to have my kid be instructed on reducing his carbon footprint as soon as the Al Gore's and Oprah's (9 homes/private plane) of the world unload their numerous homes, fleets of cars, private jets and entourages. I think it would be a fair statement to say that the Miller family of Freedom Loop are doing far less damage to the environment then they are. So, in the meantime, mind your own beeswax. Enough of this "do as I say, not as I do" nonsense.
Third... Hayden's other choice was Water Aerobics. He chose the lesser of two evils.
- Tomorrow I will be having my most favorite lemon drops (with a shot of Chambord) and sushi - I cannot wait!
