Weekend Update

Are you sitting on the edge of your seat?!

There is a 0.05% chance that this will be either entertaining,interesting, or informative.

But, let's carry on, shall we?


The SNOWSUIT arrived!:
 (It is definitely one size big, which considering it is already late February is PERFECT.  It will fit for next year & it has the extend-a-size feature so it will easily fit her through 2016.  Totally worth it!!)

The cats stole my chair... again:
 (See?.. You are riveted. You can't look away from Big Boy's humongous cat torso, can you?)

Tonight was haircut night.  Baby's hair is suddenly down to her butt:
 We went through this phase with Kid at this age, too... 
where they are just SO into their hair being sister-wife length.  
I mean it practically looks like the world's longest mullet:
(nope, just a trim)

Not 3 days after I encouraged Kid to write a humor piece for her writing project on our super fish... 
the most immortal of grocery store goldfish
who always appears dead
but NEVER is...
he up and died.
 I can't say I'm sorry.  
I've been wishing him dead for 2 years.  
I am OVER goldfish.  
Cleaning the tank is the worst chore on planet Earth.  

Mr F finished re-painting our kitchen the same wheat/yellow/gold color that is in our entryway.
Why didn't we think of this 3 years ago?  It looks a gazillion times better with those cherry cabinets I'm stuck with.  I'm done trying to fight the kitchen's 1992-ness.... I'm just working with it now.  
Especially since I have a strong urge to sell the house.

Also, Mr F stayed up until 1:30 last night researching barn weddings... 
People, it is totally doable.  

And I'll leave you with this little nugget:
Baby walked out of the room this afternoon and said to Kid...
"It makes me nervous when mom looks for houses...."

world's longest mullet LOL!

and the wishing the goldfish dead for 2 years. I wish our cats would run away.

Mrs Furious said...

Her hair grows so fast it is insane... and it is driving me crazy now that it is big kid hair and actually tangles.

I am so glad the damn fish is dead. I'm over dumb little pets that are my sole responsibility but give absolutely nothing back emotionally. It's just like an ongoing science experiment not a pet.

I'd also like Tiger to run away.... maybe he can be a barn cat?! ;)

Brenda said...

I was totally riveted by Big Boy. I always am.

And the fish... God help us all. Why did anyone ever decide that goldfish would be a great pet for children?!?! But I do hope the girls weren't upset.

Mrs Furious said...

As a true testament to how absolutely uninvolved anyone really was with the fish (despite their vehement claims otherwise) no one has noticed! It's still floating there... since I know a formal burial will be required and the ground is frozen. I haven't come up with a plan for that yet.

Mrs Furious said...

Big Boy should have his own blog. Or TV show.
One day I'll blog about how he acts when Mr F comes home from a trip... He is so emotionally involved with us, that he seems human.

Brenda said...

OMG, you have got to be kidding! Well, we lost a cat in the winter and Gary actually set up a space heater surrounded by some kind of heat-proof tiles out on the lawn to thaw the ground in the desired area. Maybe for a fish you could just use a hair dryer? :)

One word: cryogenics. A nice piece of cloth, a ziplock baggie, and a back corner of the freezer.

Mrs Furious said...

Oh I am serious. We have grave markers and everything.

Good call, Mother. Cryogenics is the only solution.

Brenda said...

Oh, I was OMGing that no one had noticed, not the burials... We have our own pet cemetery here too! :)
