Rooms by A, Tacos by E


We're finally doing some serious work on our back rooms. I'm really looking forward to being able to live in our entire house, and not just the front half. My husband took off today and tomorrow so that he can get something done, not just get started and then have to quit, like happens on most weekends. Right now we're fighting carpenter ants and termites. This house hasn't been lived in, really, for years now, and since there was a leak in the back, the little bugs have been having a perpetual feast. Luckily they've been more interested in the paper fiberboard stuff than the actual 2X4s, with a few notable exceptions.

Grandma T watched the kids for a while today while I helped A work. When they came back this evening the first thing Zaya said was, "Mommy! Grandpa branded a cow!" He was so excited, and has told me about it several times since then, too. I asked him if the cow liked it and he said, "No! It mooed and mooed and mooed! But then Uncle C gave it some 'happy juice' and it was all better." Apparently Uncle C decided to call the fly ointment that they spray on their backs "happy juice". We already have Uncle C to thank for a lot of disinformation here in our happy little home. He has also taught both of my little darlings to flash the peace sign and say "peace out" when they leave him.



Just a little notice to everyone who isn't watching the World Series. Jacoby Ellsbury stole a base tonight (game two of the above-mentioned World Series) so Taco Bell is going to give everyone in America a free taco on Oct. 30 between 2 and 5 pm. Just so you know. Hey, a free taco is a free taco, and it occurs to me that someone who was very hungry, very poor, and quite unscrupulous could easily hit all the Taco Bells in their city for a free taco if they mapped out their strategy ahead of time. I'm not even sure we have a Taco Bell within a 45 mile radius of our little town, so I'm not planning to implement this strategy myself; just an idea.

Wow! Termites, Happy Juice (with a peace out) and Tacos. You have one busy house, my dear. I don't envy you with all of the remodeling you are doing. It looks like a whole lot of work. Good luck, and show us photos of the outcome, okay?

We don't have a Taco Bell in our town, either. Bummer. We do have a taco joint down the street, walking distance, though! Dangerous for pregnancy cravings........

What's an uncle for if not to corrupt young minds? It's like being a grandparent, only you're younger.

Mmmm. Tacos. Crunchy ones, not those bogus "soft" tacos.
