If you're new around here, Fridays are pretty casual. It's the day of the week I post about whatever I feel like posting about, and there's not really any rhyme or reason to it whatsoever.
Speaking of which, that's my new welcome mat. I love it, and it makes me happy. It's the little things, y'all.
And speaking of things that are making me happy: walks with these two.
You guys, I am losing my everlovin' mind over here. Yesterday morning, my husband comes back in the bedroom to kiss me goodbye, and informs me that he just turned the burner on the stove off. As in: I LEFT THE RIGHT REAR BURNER ON THE STOVE ON ALL NIGHT LONG. Are you kidding me?? It's fine, he says. It was only on the lowest setting, he says. Thank God we don't have a gas stove is what I say. Please, someone--anyone--tell me you've done this too. Oy.
We're all still alive, as of this morning.
So...no worries, I guess.
I just have the fire department on speed dial now.
And I'm so not looking forward to the electric bill this month.
But look at us. We're a happy little family despite my inadvertent attempts to burn the house down around us while we all sleep peacefully.
If our social worker is reading this: I'm sorry. It's all just a joke. This didn't actually happen, and I would never leave a burner on all night with children in the house.
Pray for us, y'all.
I'm not even sure what to segue into after that confession. How about some Link Love.
- Jim Gaffigan : Am I the last person in the world to discover just how hilarious Jim Gaffigan is? You can watch his full shows on youtube. For free. Cody and I watched this one this week, and I was laughing so hard I actually choked at one point.
- Funny Texts Between Parents and their Kids : And some of these almost made me pee my pants. Hysterical.
- Six Brothers Welcome Home their Baby Sister : I can't even handle the sweetness. Just stop it.
- Open Letters to the Church : Yes. This is exactly how I feel about this. I don't write about this kinda stuff myself because why? but this person got it right.
As you can see, we are serious about our shag over here. Apparently, it's time for another haircut because can you see his eyes? Yeah. Me either. But isn't he just so stinkin' cute?!
In other news, we've started taking Colonel out in the canoe. At first, I think he thought we were trying to kill him. But it only took a few minutes for him to be all over that thing. He likes to lean over the side and drink the lake while we're rowing merrily along. Or bark at the slalom bouys as we pass by them. Like, seriously bark at them because maybe they're capable of attacking us.
But for being half-poodle, this guy is not keen to swim. The first time we took him out, Cody jumped out to see if Colonel would get in the water with him.
But he was so distressed until Cody got back in the canoe. Bless him.
