Random Check-In

Gosh, it's hot. Like, unbearably hot. I even clipped Buster's overgrown butt-fur so he would cool down a bit. That poor, furry dog.
Saturday was my birthday, and it was a very nice day. I'm beginning to think it might be awhile before I get back to raucus parties (which I adore, especially if they are of the costume variety), but as long as the alternative is a beautiful day with my favorite boys, I'll be happy. I had a Rotary work party to attend in the morning, at which I worked my ass off hauling fence panels and weeding, and then I had lunch out with Tony and Charles. I got an afternoon nap and some gardening in my own yard done. We barbequed and then watched a movie after Charles went to bed. All in all, a wonderful Saturday. Oh, and I made cupcakes. I guess the cupcakes were the only real indication it was my birthday. My gifts included lovely flowers from Loris and DeAnna, spices, a cookbook, and a composter from my folks, and a few CDs (Prince, Elvis, MGMT) from Tony and Leland. I'll save wearing a party dress for next year, assuming I feel good enough about my body to buy one.

Charles pulled himself up from a lying down position on Saturday, all the way up to standing. He tucks his knees and scoots a bit on his belly. Time to babyproof!

Oh' my goodness, you have a big boy there!! It is so good to see you doing so well. You sound tired, but happy! Good for you!

Re: Buster's copious butt hair... if you don't have one already, get yourself a Furminator. They are awesome for dogs with that nasty undercoat. You'll swear that you could cover another dog with the amount of fuzz that comes off your animal.

Oh, yes. I use the furminator weekly... and I usually begin by telling Buster that I need to make a new throw pillow. Disgusting, but that's about how much hair I get in one brushing.

Happy birthday! I myself am going to my first raucous party this weekend since I got pregnant with Michael THREE YEARS ago... an out-of-town bachelorette party for one of my besties. No costumes, unfortunately.

OOOH! What Prince CD did you get? The new set? You'll love it!

On my 30th (!) b-day next year I'm having a huge 80's party, which will combine raucous-ness, costumes AND Prince. You're all invited.
