Because them mustaches are as contagious as lice with the men in this house. It's remarkable that this beautiful child of mine hasn't a hair on any other parts of his 45-pound body, aside from his head, yet can grow a full mustache in less than 10 minutes. Remarkable.
Or is it?
So many things are making me happy today. Things like boys wearing "stylish mustaches." Or the unbelievably glorious weather. Went for a 50 degree walk with Chipper this morning and kept talking the whole way about how bloody gorgeous it was out. I'm certain she was in agreement. (Did I mention i have but six weeks left with Chip? Oh, that will be a post for another day, let me tell you.)
A side note: I scrapbooked about, yes, you guessed it: Chip. I can't show it to you, because it's for my column in November/December (I know, we work way ahead of the calendar) but…i thought: Man, I hope the Smiths don't think it's weird. Although the journaling does mention that it might be weird, because she's not my dog and all. But hey, famous dog! Who doesn't want that?
More happiness: i took the sliding doors off my little laundry shelf, in my less than modern basement, so I could clearly have a place for my detergent, bleach, dryer sheets, and rarely-used iron. And it looks like this:
And honestly? I feel like I just remodeled my entire basement. MAN! I love being a simpleton.
Other happy stuff: My mom and dad are somewhere on the Eastern edge of Nebraska on their way to see us, beginning tomorrow! I love that i get to spend time with them, cook for them, and show them that I really have turned out okay, despite the whole punk rock phase of my late teens, smoking, and having gay boyfriends.
Afterall, they are my MFRs—most favorite Republicans.
So I mightn't post for a few days (although I say that, and probably won't mean it) so don't think I dropped off the face of the earth.
I did think that it might be fun to answer some "viewer mail." Because a lot of times, you fabulous folks will post questions, and i don't answer them and it's not that I don't care…well, maybe it is that a little…(I kid, because I love…). You know, like someone posted, "You never talk about Lost. What's up with that?"
So, here's the deal: you have a question? related to whatever's on your mind….you know, like scrapbooking, or things that you need to know that I may be able to answer? then post it here. I know Ali did a Q&A once. Seemed kind of cool. So, i'm trying it. Sound good?
And I will compile them all into one lovely post in the next few weeks.
