Putting Out The Herd

Hopefully it will not be freezing your fingers cold this weekend, so mom can finish putting up the Christmas lights and the "herd".

Dad wishes he could put a red light bulb on the lead reindeer's nose but mom says no! Sometimes she's boring like that. lol

Tattle Tale Tuesday

Today's Tattle is  a little different than normal. It involves PlusOne and Mom and LOUD FAST TALKING. It even looks a little like this.

Some of you may know that PlusOne is 15-1/2 yrs old. In NH, you can legally drive with your parents in the car if you are 15-1/2 yrs old. PlusOne has driven with Dad. I think it goes without saying that Dad is a lot CALMER than Mom in many things. This is one of them.

Saturday mom let PlusOne drive to karate. It was early (9:15 am) so mom figured it would be okay. Well, the first test came when PlusOne took a left turn onto a busier street. He hadn't pulled up quire enough to see a car coming from the right (over 1/2 block away) when he starting taking the turn. Mom's encouraging voice turned into "FLOOR IT GOGOGOGOGOGOGO NOW SLOW DOWN!!!!!!"
I am thankful I was at home sunning myself in a sunbeam because otherwise I think I would have bailed out!
Mom said the rest of the trip to karate was quite uneventful and PlusOne did very well slowing down for lights and staying in between the lines. She just thinks he needs a LITTLE (read LOTS AND LOTS AND LOTS) more practice with turns. With Dad!

Dog Shaming

Dad found a website called Dog Shaming. It's where the dog owners post photos of their dogs confessing to their bad behavior. Mom and Dad say I belong on that website.

All I can say after seeing the above photo is "How can mom possibly think that the above photo compares in any way to the photo below!

Seriously, mom thinks that posting a photo of the bad things I do is even going to compare to some of those guys? One dog peed on a beach bather. What the heck? Even I am not that bad!

It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

Mom started to put up Christmas lights yesterday. The sky was blue and the sun was shining, but the wind was howling and mom only got the fence lights up before her fingers froze and she came back inside to read in a sunbeam. I warmed her up by climbing in her lap. She liked it, I could tell. She may make another attempt today. We'll see how the weather holds up.

Slow Saturday

I see no reason to go running around like some people do on Saturday, so Lucky and I are taking it slow today. Seriously, why should we do anything else?

Black Friday

Mom doesn't do the Black Friday shopping thing. In fact, she tries very hard not to leave the house on Black Friday. But this year she and PlusOne are going to see Argo. Dad doesn't want to see it, and he is working today and tomorrow, so mom figured it was a perfect mom-son thing to do. That is, after she does some quilting and cleaning around the house, and sleeping late and giving me belly rubs.

Danger Danger

PlusOne complained about a sore throat when he got home from school yesterday so mom immediately called the doctor. The good news is that he FAILED the rapid Strep Test (just like mom did) the bad news is that he has a sinus infection. So he got medicine just like mom that will kill the Strep virus if the full test comes back positive (just like mom's did). Somehow dad has not gotten sick. I think I am gonna stick with him for a bit. What do you think?

Feeling Better

Mom is no longer contagious, so she went to work today. Yesterday I got LOTS and LOTS of snuggles and cuddles in. Mom never got out of her pj's and didn't get out of bed til real late. It was a win win day for sure!

Easy Like Sunday Morning

It's going to be a VERY easy day around here. Remember that cold and sore throat mom was fighting? Well, after a doctor visit Friday and a negative on the rapid  STREP Throat test, the other doctor called to tell mom that the full test came back POSITIVE. Mom has Strep! Woo Hoo. Way to go mom! So, it's going to be a keep mom in bed for as long as possible day. After all, it is for her own good.

Chicken Soup Saturday

Mom and Blondie went fabric shopping and clothes shopping and then came back to the house to quilt. They had a lot of fun and yes, I got my belly rubs. The best part was the chicken soup mom made. It smelled delicious and mom gave Lucky and I leftover chicken, potatoes and carrots. Can you say YUMMY!

Friday, November 16, 2012

Finally Friday!!!

Mom is taking the day off and having a "Girls Day Out" with her BFF Blondie! Mom is feeling better, so I guess it will be a day of shopping, shopping and more fun shopping. Sheesh, you think she could stay home and rub my belly instead? What's more important here. Me or her BFF of 32 years?

Tired Thursday

Why is it that the day mom is supposed to get her Third Degree Black Belt, she comes down with a sore throat and a cold!. She didn't let it stop her from smiling ear to ear during the promotion ceremony. Afterwards, she was in bed early. lol

Tattle Tale Tuesday

Mom wants to know why I can climb ONTO the table but REFUSE to jump DOWN off the table! I tell her it is one of the mysteries of life!

Easy Like Sunday Morning

This feels like a good place to relax. After all, isn't that what Sundays are for?

Last Saturday

This is the last Saturday that mom has to get up at the crack of dawn and get to karate to do her running, sit-ups and push-ups. Mom is psyched. Of course, if PlusOne passes his exam tomorrow, then mom will be waking him up for the same Saturday morning fun starting in January, while he goes for his Third Degree Black Belt. Still, after tomorrow, mom has five weeks to sleep in! (Of course, sleeping in means mom gets up at 8:00 am, instead of 7:00 am. lol)

Supposedly we are supposed to get 60 to 70 degree weather this weekend. Supposedly. I'll let you know if it really happens.

The Mad Scientist

And mom thinks I'm bad??? When he blows up the house I will remember to tell her "I told you so"!

Fall Behind

Lucky and I are psyched that we are going to get an extra hour of sleep today. I bet mom and PlusOne will like it too. I hope you enjoy it as well!

Saturday, November 3, 2012

Almost Done

Mom has one more Saturday after today that she has to wake up extra early, go to the karate studio, run 20 minutes, do 40 push-ups and 60 sit-ups. Only one more. She is psyched. She can't wait to sleep in to 8:00 am or maybe even 8:30! You can imagine why I like her sleeping in. Because if she does, I can too!

Friday, November 2, 2012

Fabulous Friday!

It's a fabulous day because mom is taking the day off! SNUGGLES! And I heard there was a massage table somewhere with mom's name on it. After dealing with a pulled hamstring for the last 13 weeks, mom would like it to GO AWAY! Hopefully, the massage will help. And after mom gets hers, she better give me one!
