I swear in the two or so weeks since I've seen Matthew, he's grown almost 2 inches. I think he lost most of his baby flab too. He is still the little kooka head as always. The things that come out of his 5 year old mouth is funny. I told him that he must have grown at least 3 inches since the last time I saw him, "No" he said, "I'm not 3 I'm almost 6, Auntie Sara." He really didn't grasp the concept of growth or maybe just inches. My Mom, Chris, Polly and Matthew were playing CandyLand and Chris was talking and Matthew just had to say something and he kept interupting, so my Mom told him that he has to wait his turn. Finally with what seemed like hours to Matthew, he exclaims "HELLO! over here, what am I chopped liver!" Where does he get this stuff from?

It seems that just 6 months ago I was holed up in our downstairs bathroom renovating it for my mammy. Well, it also seems that I am once again holed up in a bathroom, too bad it's our upstairs one. I would say that more than a year ago, it might even be two, that my brother Chris thought that in order to jump start the renovation he would rip down all the walls and floor. Like I said, at least two years later I am doing it.

Living back home is turning me into the ultimate lesbian. I can weild a hammer like no dyke's business. Chances are that if you take me home to meet your momma, I'm gonna end up tearing walls down and building a three season porch with matching furniture. Being home makes me want to take a sledge hammer to walls and throw pales of paint on the walls to make it look pretty.

It's not like our house is a dump, it's just that it's almost 27 years old and in need of some updating. One project is over and it's on to another. It's crazy.

This is for Carol, seeing as though she's the only other person with a dog who reads this.

Dog peeves about humans
1. Passing gas and blaming it on me... not funny...not funny at all !!!
2. Yelling at me for barking... I'M A DOG, YOU NUMBSKULL!
3. Taking me for a walk, then not letting me check stuff out. Exactly whosewalk is this anyway?4. Any trick that involves balancing food on my nose... stop it!
5. Any haircut that involves bows or ribbons. Now you know why we chew yourstuff up when you're not home.
6. The sleight of hand, fake fetch throw. You fooled a dog!Woooo-Hooooooo!Oh, what a proud moment for the top of the food chain.
7. Taking me to the vet for "the big snip", then acting surprised when Ifreak out every time we go back!
8. Getting upset when I sniff the crotches of your guests. Sorry, but Ihaven't quite mast ered that handshake thing yet.
9. Dog sweaters. Hello??? Haven't you noticed the fur?
10. How you act disgusted when I lick myself. Look, we both know the truth,you're just jealous.

Now lay off me on some of these things, We both know who's boss here (youdon't see me picking up your poop, do you?).

Geesh, where should I start?

I don't really know where. As everyone knows it's already 2006. Actually, almost the end of the first month. I really don't have resolutions, seeing as I always break them. And this way if I keep it to myself they might just work out.

We had a terrible snowstorm on Friday afternoon/evening that really blanketed the whole area. By Saturday afternoon all the snow was melted from the roads and really wasn't really effecting anything anymore. I just know that what usually takes my Mom 15 minutes to get home from work took her 50+ minutes Friday night. She said by the time she got in the driveway she was dizzy and had slight vertigo from the snow coming right at her. Crazy!

Amy came over Sunday morning so my Mom could get her hair did. Almost turning 30 must be making Amy soft, cause she offered to touch up my hi-lights and maybe add some color. Next thing I know she has three different tubes in her hand and is telling me to pick a color and she'll make it happen. WHOA! who is this person? I picked blonde streaks with a sweet-ass red burgandy color. When we were done washing the color out she told me to sit back down and told me it was time for a haircut. Imagine my surprise! So, instead of a trim I actually got a "do". It's so sweeeeet! I can't wait to show it off. Too bad I'm working all this week and won't be in the city until February 4th. I'm sure I'll still look hot then...
