last night, circa, 6:30pm. the last of my come-and-take-ali’s-books-away visitors had gone. the husband had gone. i had gotten out of the shower and was all, hrm, where’s Emily? i searched the entire house. i mean, i even searched the furnace room in the basement. and then i panicked. and then i may have cried. and i may have said the f word. the husband laughs when i call him “um, yeah, she went to my sister’s for dinner. hahaha” oh yeah. that’s really funny.
what is funny, however, is the almost-fully grown-in adult tooth that is hiding underneath her front tooth.
she is officially dubbed SHARKGIRL.
what is also funny is the $14 i the husband found in my peacoat for 11 years ago. the one i haven’t worn since the first year we were married. the one i, of course, still had hanging in a closet in my basement.
ali the packrat is not even a bit surprised that we were able to fill more than half of the industrial-sized garbage bin that is currently taking up way too much space on my driveway. and the nannies…ohmigoodgod, the nannies! they have asked if they can go CRAWLING through the bin for hidden treasure. i swear if no photo evidence comes of this hilarity, i will shed tears. big giant bitch-titted bob from Fight Club tears. can you imagine a dozen nannies jumping in and out of this thing?
this weekend also marked the purge of ali’s books. this is the table after about HALF of the books had already gone. and we aren’t even going to talk about the hundreds of books that i KEPT and couldn’t part with…
and then, of course, this weekend marked Shavegate 2009. we took Indiana to petsmart to get a standard shi tzu three inch cut. you know, to make him look like this:
but instead of 3 INCH, they, for some reason, heard #3 BLADE. which is 1/2 an inch. GAH! cue the weeping. my puppy is BALD.
but, alas, he is still superIndy to me…
just like his best friend and big sister, SuperBella
now, i’m off to spend my $14 on something really important. like coffee. i need it.
