When Your Husband is Defeated by a Four Pound Cat.

The kids and I left this weekend to come down to Kentucky to stay with my parents for a week. I’m photographing my friend’s birth and her due date was Saturday. So far no baby! This is her third birth. I’ve photographed the other two. Have I ever mentioned how much I love births?? Tyler had to work on Monday and Tuesday (today and tomorrow). He’s planning on coming down on Wednesday. So the way we have our ridiculous kitties set...

And Now For Something Entirely Adorable:

First, apple orchard this weekend! Second, baby guinea pigs! I let them have another litter to replace the one that Igor murdered. I think it’s healing for the girls to have something new and sweet. Shortly after birth: One day old: Two, almost three, days old: Group shot! Four total…FOUR! I think all are boys. From left to right their names are King Xerxes, Lucky the Runt, Uncle Mordecai, and Prince Precious. On the right there is Ada’s guinea pig Prince...

A Visit From Splinter.

For f*cks sake I am never touching anything with milk ever again. I am so miserable. It takes forever to get out of my system. WHY! The charcoal does help the immediate gas bubbles and cramps, but I still feel awful. I’ve still pooped 80234 times in the past two days. I’m relieved to know it’s milk though. I mean it’s obvious, the same thing happens each time I stupidly try to eat it. Two hours after eating it I feel...

Snow Dog! 0

White Stuff.

It really snowed! Leave it to Ada to lock us out of the house when it’s 10 degrees outside with a foot of snow on the ground. We were going to go out and play for just a few minutes. Our old Victorian door knob has this strange lock where you push a button on the door jamb area of the door to turn the lock on. It stays locked and you can open the door from the inside, but once...

I can’t believe this happened.

My Accidentally-Knocked-Up-Kitty gave birth to her kittens too early yesterday. Too much sad. Way too much sad. There were four of them. She tried to get them to nurse and she kept looking at me like, “Why is this not working?” She was purring so loudly, licking them, cuddling them. Ada kept telling her, “I’m so sorry. I’m so, so sorry.” Rosie is still holding out hope that there are more kittens hidden inside of her that will be born later,...

RIP Mouse. 0

RIP Mouse.

The mouse was successfully dispatched the following night. Rosie got up in the morning and went in the kitchen.  I heard her scream, “A dead mouse!  Inside our kitchen!” She grabbed my phone and took a picture of it and brought it in bed to show me.  Indeed, it was a dead mouse on the kitchen floor. Ada got up to look at it, screamed and ran back in the bedroom to tell me it had tiny eyes/legs/toes and A REAL...

Spring Tease & The Mouse. 0

Spring Tease & The Mouse.

We have a mouse in our house!  This has never happened before here. It came in the dryer vent hole, stole my collection of saved garden seeds, and made a nice nest behind the dryer in the corner.  I saw no signs of it and had no idea it was there until our dryer broke and we got it repaired the other day.  When we pulled out the dryer, there was the evidence! I wondered why my cats had taken to...

Hound Beast, Win or Fail?

Oh, Hank… I cleaned out the fridge last night and didn’t get a chance to take it out yet. He ate half a big container of expired yogurt, a box (4 sticks) of expired butter (wtf I’ve never had butter expire before…had a really short date), he also ate half a bowl of really old Panera broccoli and cheddar soup, half a thing of old roast beef deli meat, some wilted spinach, a few bananas, and who knows what else. Bonus: Most...

Meet-Up and Duck Face Amos.

How do I keep running out of time to post here?  I love writing down thoughts and sharing pictures on my blog, if not for any other reason than I enjoy looking back at it years later.  I’ve been doing this for quite some time, since maybe 2002.  I’m too tired to look back and check the date of my very first entry, but it’s been years! I can’t seem to catch up on anything lately.  I need a pause button.  Or maybe a part time...

Photos of Our Typical Day.

Do you realize the summer is nearly half over now? Soon it’s going to be time for Rosie to start Kindergarten.  We’re homeschooling, so she’s not really going anywhere, but we have to keep an attendance record for the state. I have to send a letter to the board of education stating our intent to homeschool this August!  For real, it will be official.  I will have accepted the responsibility. What a huge responsibility it is!  We’ve been doing schoolish things already–we’re...
