Random Tuesday Thoughts: Rakes and Rocket-Dogs


My son is really starting to speak clearly. Today, while waiting for his french toast, he looked me squarely in the eye and said forcefully, "Eat. Me!" Awesome.

I feel guilty as hell. I dropped the kitten off at the butcher's vet's to be spayed and have her front paws declawed. I don't even agree with the practice of declawing cats, but she can climb over our privacy fence and we live on a busy road, so in the interest of her safety...There's something wrong about spending hundreds of dollars to drop off a perfectly healthy animal and bring home a convalescent. The guilt is killing me!

Has anyone else noticed that Sonia Manzano (Maria on Sesame Street) doesn't age?! WTF?! Plastic surgery? The blood of virgins? I'm just sayin'...

I'm feeling like a frickin' genius today, because not only did I check the weather yesterday to determine whether or not a frost was likely, but I remembered to pull the plants inside before going to bed last night. This morning, sure enough, there was frost on our windshields. Crisis averted! Go, me.

Speaking of plants (and when aren't I?) the Linder's parking-lot nursery has opened for the season across the street. They are carrying three (3!!!) of the plants that I requested (needed) last year, but at the time could only find online for a kajillion dollars. In bulk. I bought one of each the other day, and I am trying really hard not to go back to pick up 6 more. They call to me, and I am tortured by thoughts of them being sold to someone else. I=fat kid, Ajuga reptans v. "Chocolate chip"=cake.

I can't stay inside any longer. It's too fun watching Walker whack things with his little plastic rake while Katie rocket-dogs through the yard and Dom basks in the kids' play-tunnel. I'll come back tonight and read all of your great RTT posts. Promise.
