Mixed Bag

I have been such a lazy blogger lately. I lay in bed at night, which seems to be when eloquent, articulate posts start to culminate in my head (but somehow, my brain can't convince my body to get up and write).

So I present to you a mixed bag. There's so much more. But here are the highlights.

First of all, I am extremely excited to announce that I've been asked to join the SpouseBUZZ team as a contributing author. I can't express how honored I am to be able to surround myself with the authors and readers that make SpouseBUZZ what it is. Really, there are no words that could come close to telling you guys how awesome I think this is. Very exciting, indeed.

Total change of subject. Brace yourselves. This is what my arm looks like, 24 hours after my first tattoo removal treatment. It's comical, really, how badly it hurt. I was screaming combinations of cuss words I'm sure no one has ever heard before. And in between, I'd apologize. And then continue to scream:

Tucker was having the same kind of day:

And Chevy, the cat, is getting shaved bald this week. Hair balls have been a daily event at the Scout household, and it's going to stop. Add to the mix a dog in heat (who is getting spayed soon), and another dog allergic to everything on the planet (who is now on steroids). I think I'm very close to losing my mind.

In a strange turn of events, Scout's ex-wife called me out of the blue and said, "So, do you want Scout Jr. for the summer?" UM. HELL YES! So I will be a full-time mother of two very shortly. I can't wait. :)

Hello Erin! I've had your blog bookmarked for a few months now and I check in at least a couple of times each week. I actually found you and ABW through the SB comments. I'm looking forward to "working" with you!

I sent this to my sister for her "anti" tatoo file. Whew! I think there must be an easier way . . .

Hill Country Fare moist hairball formula really works. I have tried others that did not. It is in a small orange foil pouch at the H.E.B. with the cat food. I give the cat 7 once a week. The cat is 11 pounds with very long hair.

Ha, I am picturing the scene in 40 Year Old Virgin when he gets his chest waxed. Is your cussing that comical? Heh.

Charlie's getting shaved Saturday too...

A power sander probably would be less painful.

Um. OW!!!!!!

I cannot believe how big Tucker is already. :)

Good luck with the pet craziness as well as the ex-craziness. Don't know how you do it.
