Random Thursday

This morning was going well, until I went into the fridge to put Cooper’s lunch together, and realized that the chicken I had put in there yesterday to thaw, had thawed. And leaked. Down onto two shelves below and into two veggie drawers. GAH. Chicken goo. I hate chicken goo. So that had to be cleaned. Then as I went to put Cooper’s coat on to leave, I realized he needed a diaper change. A poopy diaper change. And of course his father was outside starting the cars.

Then I checked out facebook and began wondering why in the world I don’t live where I can see this out my front door:

Instead of this:

The first picture is what a friend from high school sees when he looks out his front door, somewhere in central CA. The second is what I see. It is 14 degrees right now in Boston.

And then there this excerpt from my life last night: I had peeled a banana for Cooper, and managed to drop the entire thing on the floor before cutting it into pieces. Of course as usual I had three dogs circling below me, waiting for just this opportunity. Buster the man eating beagle got it first. I decided that swallowing an entire banana whole was probably a bad idea for him, so I grabbed his collar and managed to get half of it to fall to the floor. This act is akin to sticking your hand into a pit of hungry alligators. I managed to get that half away before he ate my arm off. I split that half with the other dogs. All of this happened within sight and earshot of the Bob, who was in the living room. He finally said “What?” in response to things I was saying to the dogs.

Me, in frustration at him not noticing my death defying banana grabbing stunt: I could get abducted by aliens in here, 50 feet away from you and you would never know.
The Bob: Would they leave a note?
Me: That is totally going in the blog

  1. I take care of the farm. I am always getting hooked in the extra of it all. I got duck food yesterday and the 50 lb bag exploded all over the back of the company SUV. Typically I use my truck for such things but that is in the shop. The dog peed on the rug. Getting the cats fed and kitty box cleaned, then go to work. Where am I going with this?I guess I just guest blogged in your comments.Oh ALIENS, no one would even know. I’d be like vapor, until critters started getting hungry.

  2. It was universal drop and slop day I think.

  3. Also, snow a better option than a view of wildfires!!!

  4. Sam

    The high tomorrow here is supposed to be 74. (Sorry. Am asshole right now.)

  5. “Would they leave a note?”Bob is my new favoritest person! Anyone who can have 3 dogs, 1 lil’boy and my sister in the house and STILL come up with that…A tip o’the hat to you.

  6. “Me, in frustration at him not noticing my death defying banana grabbing stunt: I could get abducted by aliens in here, 50 feet away from you and you would never know.The Bob: Would they leave a note?Me: That is totally going in the blog”Now this is funny! And it seems sort of familiar. Don’t feel bad, I live in MN and it is colder. I know it isn’t any real consolation, though. The CA scene is not nice. : )
