Things you never thought to wonder

Squirrel Poop is Green- like grass. Ew.

Now on to what I have been up to:
I have been on a bender lately. Spring Cleaning season just happened to coincide with a chunk of time off for me this year so, for the first time in three years I have gotten the clutter in every part of the house under control all at once. I have spent the last couple of weeks de-cluttering and deep cleaning every room in this house. Every room except Hubby's "Study"- I'm no delusional masochist! We also got a new Vacuum a few weeks ago when I realized that the cordless 12 volt stick vac was kicking my big vacuum's butt. It was time to retire that poor thing- 13 years is alot of heavy abuse for one little Eureka. So, armed with my new rockin' Vacuum, I have cleaned and cleaned and I finally feel like I own my possessions instead of my posessions owning me. We ended up donating 7 bags of clothing/shoes/handbags and a truck-bed full of other Household Items to Goodwill. Even our Garage got the spring cleaning treatment- which is when I learned what color Squirrel poop is. Luckily, I did not have any
close encounters with it (unlike Hubby).

Now the real challenge is going to be keeping it this way. eeek!

Holy-crap. This video is very cool- it is an eagle's eye view of flying. And I REALLY mean that it's the view as seen FROM THE EAGLE'S BACK. If you've ever wanted to know what a bird sees from up there, have a look.

Very Cool.

Rosemary Triscuits

Me: (to Hubby) These things have too much dang seasoning on them!! If they had just put some actual rosemary in a regular triscuit, they'd be good! Instead, it's like a crap-load of "seasoning powder" with a little bit of triscuit thrown in! These suck!!! URGH!!

Hubby: ( giving me that "you is ca-ray-zay" look) You seem really worked up about this. (Mental Subtext: Please don't hurt me I didn't make the triscuits)

Me: I'm not really worked up, I'm just annoyed!!

Hubby: Well, you sound really worked up about it...

Me: I always sound "really worked up" about things that I'm only annoyed about- you should know that by now (mental subtext: now that we're in our 12 year of marriage and 14th year of kissing each other)!

Hubby: .... ( Imagined mental subtext: "Okay, I'm walking away now because you are scary")

I am scary-sounding sometimes about things I'm really only annoyed about. I have been told this since approximately 6th grade when a surprisingly astute fellow-sixth-grader told me I often sounded angry when I said things, so maybe I should watch that. I don't know when I sound overly-angry. I only know I'm doing it when Hubby gives me that Look. Oh well, for the record, I DO try!

Tiny Art Director

I just ran across this website "Tiny Art Director"

If you have ever spent any time with a child at all, and especially one who is four years old or younger, you will understand. Apparently this a site run by an artist who posts his daughter's "Commissions" and her reaction to them. By the time I got to the Poo-poo airplane, I was laughing out loud. And yes, I should be in bed by now, but that has nothing to do with it!
