Vaporized Prunes

Low-key weekend. Knobby finished the soffit work in the kitchen . . . now I’m sanding down wood putty and getting it ready to paint.  Looking forward to putting the kitchen back in order. While his tools were so convenient, I was able to convince him to hang some hooks in the Laundry Room . […]

Doctors Appointment and Random Houses

I have this annoying sinus headache.  It’s more of an ache on my head than a headache. Take your tube of lipgloss, push it into the arch between your eyebrow and your nose, and that’s how it feels. Sinus pressure. Yay. —- Went to the pediatric urologist today . . . an appointment I’d been […]

Speculation

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here . . . I’m suddenly wishing I hadn’t done that bit of revenge-shopping this past week when Knobby stayed up very very late playing video games. That’s what happens, you know, when the husband decides to sit at his computer yelling into a headset microphone at his friends in […]

Almost Done

Poor Minion had to go for shots on Monday, and his little chunky thighs are still marked and bruised.  Sad face. He’s now 16 pounds, seven ounces, and is seven inches longer than he was when born.   She wants us to start real foods in a week or two.  We stopped on the way […]

Just Six Little Buttons

So . . . If you look to the left in this picture from the last entry, you’ll see the kitchen.   Then this weekend happened. “Just six little buttons in the wall”, he said. I was tired of all the remotes at the door.  You always had to stick your arm out of the kitchen […]

Evar.

I’m tired. You’ve been asking for Minion pics. I’ll keep things short. Tuesday, had to go for an outpatient procedure at the hospital.  Hospital feels like an eternity away, Knobby had important meeting, I had Mom come over and watch Minion.  Drove myself (I know.  Whoa.), everything went speedily (especially for hospital time), was driving […]

Pleased as Punch

*Yawn* Knobby has been on vacation for nearly two weeks now.  Lots of little house improvements have been made. House has been automated.  He’s made an app for our phones which can turn lights on and off, uses Sonos habits and other tricks via the Nest thermostats.  Replaced light switches but we can’t really see […]

Red. Hot. Mortified.

This past week, The Thorns’ landlord contacted us and asked if there were any objections to renewing their lease. Knobby and I basically agreed that they were still dumb as dirt, but they had nothing specifically egregious enough to warrant refusal. Then, it seems, The Thorns were just so darn HAPPY that their lease was […]

Documentary

Some of you have been complaining that no new pictures have been showing up on Minion’s website lately. That’s my fault. I’ve been hogging the camera while I’m documenting all the family pictures and papers and whatnot. Meanwhile, here’s a little something to quench your Minion thirst. Hotel Life: And BubbleBeard and his Sophie Love:   […]

SpikeStrips. That’s What We Need.

Our yard was in sad shape until this weekend. It made me twitchy.  Three weeks of warm weather neglect while we were away.  Weedy grass taller than Ava, and I don’t even want to talk about the “garden”. I don’t really like the garden.  It is a fenced-in space that Dad installed for Mimi.  I […]
