Tattle Tale Tuesday

My mom is a slacker. She hasn't been commenting on my fellow pug's blogs, she hardly posts anything to our Pug Group on Facebook. She leaves Lucky and I alone all day, comes home for dinner and then leaves AGAIN! I think I need to trade my mom in for a better model. Any takers?

Random Monday

Lucky is truly Queen of the Hill.

The scarf Memere painted for PlusOne's Fundraiser. (If interested in something similar, let mom know.)

And humor to make Monday seem not so bad. :)

Easy Like Sunny Sunday Morning

Yesterday was nice, sunny and warm, a welcome change from the yukky weather we've been having. Lucky and I enjoyed a sunbeam for as long as we could. Then we climbed on Mom, Dad and PlusOne, watched some Big Bang Theory and Justified! She is so psyched it's back! Lucky and I couldn't care less, as long as we have a lap to snuggle in.

Spoiled Saturday

I am so glad we are spoiled pugs! We have had snow, freezing rain, slush, sleet and a whole bunch of yukky weather. But inside our house it is nice and warm, safe and sound and full of treats and love. We have Dad, mom and PlusOne to cuddle with us and pet us. This is totally the life.

Truthful Thursday

PlusOne read "The Hunger Games" a few years ago. Now that they are making a movie out of it, he said mom had to read it too. And fast, because he wants to see it right when it comes out. So mom is reading it. She is now on the second book, "Catching Fire".

It is not a happy book, it is awful and scary and makes mom crazy that something like this could happen. And mom has to finish it soon. She can't put it down. She has stayed up too late reading it. Then she has to read the third one, "Mockingjay". I think mom's going to be tired for the next few days. At least I can cuddle up to her while she reads.

Tattle Tale Tuesday

I have a shocking Tattle Tale for you today. As you can see, even Lucky is stunned by it.

Mom doesn't really care about football. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? I know, I know. You are SHOCKED and STUNNED by this fact. What can I say? She's my mom, and I love her, but, to not care about FOOTBALL? When we have the BEST QUARTERBACK EVER???? Sigh, I have to go hide my head in shame.

Dad Had Room For Us

Dad had room for us in the recliner, as he watched his football game. Auntie and dad are happy because the boys named Pat are going to the Super Bowl. Lucky and I were happy because we were nice and warm next to dad!

More Snow?

Yup, we had more snow. Not a lot, just a couple of inches. But we really d0n't need or want just a couple of inches every other day. Because then it adds up! I hear there's a big football game today. I wonder if there's room in dad's lap for Lucky and me.

Snoozing Saturday

The best thing to be do in the best place to be!

Fabulous Friday

Why is it fabulous, you ask?

Because we're going to have more SNOW! That's why. And yes, in case you were wondering, that IS sarcasm.

Fabric, Fabric Everywhere

You know what was really no fun? Mom wouldn't let me roll around in it. Big Bummer!

PlusOne has his Algebra mid term today. Mom is worried. Oh, they've studied, done practice tests, gone over homework and problems together. And mom is so worried she wants to hurl. It's going to be a loooooong day.

Success - And A Dilemma

Mom found the perfect color for the backing for her lap robe. She could have gone yellow green, which would have calmed the quilt done (not what mom wanted) or pink and made it BOING! Three guesses which one she picked.

Even Auntie approved.

Now, for the dilemma. She found this flimsy (an unfinished quilt top) in her quest to organize her fabrics (more on that later).

As you can see, it is Asian fabrics. Mom can make it 4' x 5' but she doesn't know what to do with it. Or who would want it.

Anyone got any ideas?

It's Done

Mom received this commission last year. The top, of flimsy, is done. Today she is going to her and Auntie's favorite quilt shop for a backing. Mom wants a hot pink, but not too dark a hot pink. I just want to know when I can quality control it!

Mean Mom

She brought home roast chicken and didn't SHARE. How much meaner can you get.

The Dreaded "S" Word

That's right snow! Hey, let me back in the house! NOW!!!

I am not going out in that!!!

The Bathtub Is Safe Again

Remember this guy? He plagued the bathtub for quite a while.


Peace was restored

Thanks to the Naval Force of PlusOne.

It is now safe for us to take a bath. (Why on God's green earth would I WANT to take a bath? In the middle of WINTER no less. I think school is getting to PlusOne.)

Thank You Very Much

Now Go HOME!

You may not know this, but today is the Presidential Primary. The First in the Nation Primary. The one where if you don't come in 1st or 2nd, you might as well quit because you won't get the nomination primary. (Yes, that is a true fact, honest! We NH'er's know how to pick them.)

So we have been deluged by media and candidates and ads and candidates and press and ads and you get the idea? Mom watched the news Friday night (her first mistake) and there were 6 political ads within 15 minutes. Sheesh, I tell you, sheesh! Have the primary, count the votes, then go home! But thank you for all the attention. Too bad it wasn't for someone really important, like me! lol Are you sick of hearing about New Hampshire yet? lol

Monday, Monday

Auntie, Memere, Pepere, Ninja One, Little Ninja and Ninja One's wife came over last night for dinner. Mom made ribs, broccoli and mashed potatoes for dinner. For dessert there was two slices of toasted Angel Food cake with Lindt chocolate in between. Everyone was stuffed, except me. Though mom did give me some broccoli to keep me from climbing INTO the dishwasher to lick the plates clean (not that I didn't try).

Here is Memere and Little Ninja. Memere was enjoying him. So was mom. I am not allowed to bark at him. I still do, though, lol. After all, I have to live up to my name, don't I?

Yesterday was PlusOne's first People to People meeting. It was a social, to get to know the other delegates. PlusOne finished the Information Bingo first, and received a nice P2P sticker. It had questions like "owns a cat" (cat? cat I ask you? No pugs among the bunch of them, phooey) "has an older sister" or "eldest child". There were 25 of them. Mom always said PlusOne was a talker, and could talk to just about anyone. Well, that proved it.

Mom was surprised that some of the students hadn't started Fund Raising yet. Mom wants it over and done, paid for, with no more worrying. PlusOne said "that's because you're mom!" Yup, that's my mom. "Get it done now, no last minute fooling around for us!"

Have a great Sunday everyone.

Saturday - Cuddle Time

Hey mom, where are you going? It's Saturday, time to cuddle! Get back here and cuddle with us!

My Handsome Boy

Lucky here, and I want to show off my handsome boy in his tuxedo for the Christmas Concert. He plays cello.

Aren't I Lucky to have such a handsome boy? Who loves me more than anything?

I'm just saying.

I've got it made, don't I? ~Lucky

Two Dog Night Defined

Not a Three Dog Night, because, of course, there are only two of us.

Three Dog Night
It refers to being cold. Often when ranchers or cowboys were out on the range they would have to sleep with their dogs to keep warm. A one dog night was a night when he had to share body heat with one dog, two dog night was two dogs and a three dog night was an extremely cold night where he would have to share body heat with three dogs. “how cold was it on your trip?” “It was a three dog night”.

Mom pulled the covers back on PlusOne yesterday morning to find Lucky stretched out against PlusOne's back and me curled up against his stomach. I think that is what you call a win win situation.

Tattle Tale Tuesday

Here is why I am never taking a bath, ever again!

Yup, that's never with a capital "NEVER"! Can you blame me?

Back To Work

This is how mom feels about going back to work today. I can't say I am thrilled about it either. No more cuddling and being under the blanket all day while she reads. No more getting out of bed really late. No more belly rubs and ear scratches all day long. Yeah, I'm not happy about it either.
