This post couldn't possibly be any more random.

Ah, yes, I only tell you about the BIG poo stories, but there are oh so many more little day-to-day ones. Lots of little pee stories, too. Like the other night, for instance. Unfortunately the overnite diaper (not a typo, Huggies Overnites are spelled that way, thankyouverymuch) was not positioned perfectly over "Mr. Willie", and the floodgates opened. My husband checked on our boy sometime during the night, found him swimming in pee, stripped and changed the sheets, and then put him back to sleep. All while I slumbered peacefully in the other room, unaware of the situation. Sweet, huh? The funny part came in the morning when I found my child sleeping under a tablecloth. Apparently Papa was unable to tell the difference between a twin flat sheet and a tablecloth.

Um yeah, I didn't quite accomplish either of the two things on my "Tackle it Tuesday" list yesterday. A big ole NADA for me. Zip. Zilch. Nothing. But I do have an excuse -- yesterday ended up being quite the wild goose chase, having to acquire a few items and paperwork needed for final approval to be a "backup plan/break-giver" for a foster parent friend of mine. And have no fear -- I now am the proud owner of a kitchen fire extinguisher. Safety is my middle name, oh yes it is. And besides, my failures and bravery to tell you about my failures, well, that just makes me all the more endearing, right? Well, even if it doesn't, I'm going to tell myself that it does.

Want to hear something funny? The other day my mom was talking about blogs and Internet sites like Facebook and MySpace, and she was commenting on how shallow and self-centered she thinks it all is. She was saying how she couldn't believe people have their own websites where they talk about themselves and their interests, yada, yada, yada. (Insert evil daughter laughing here: Mwahahaha). And all the while I have over 120 posts under my belt so far. I totally wanted to laugh. But instead I just nodded my head and said "hmmm" a whole lot. Obvious she is clueless to my Internet life.

Anyone hungry for a little greyhound sandwich?

Or how about this cuddly guy?

It's a darn good thing they are so cute. It helps me forgive all the potty accidents, excessive barking (cough, cough, Minnie Pearl, cough, cough), and general mayhem that goes down thanks to these three.

I saw this post on ohdeedoh today.

Interesting, huh? A real live dollhouse!

I finally got around to taking a picture of our new picket fence. (Keep in mind it has already soaked up 9 gallons of stain, not kidding, and could probably use a few more.)

We love, love, love our new picket fence. Now we have a place for the boy to run around without a.) falling in a pool, b.) stepping in dog poo, and c.) getting hit by a car. What more could a girl ask for? Well, maybe some cute shutters. And a custom screen door. Maybe some windowboxes. And how 'bout a couple of Adirondack chairs on the lawn? Preferably in blue, thanks. (You know my husband just loves me to pieces. The neverending-human-honey-do-list. That's me.)

And before I forget, I must wish a very Happy Birthday to Amy today! Hope it was a fantastic birthday! Here's a fun little birthday video I found just for you:

Thank you, Valerie!!! I LOVE my birthday video. That's too cute!

I had a wonderful birthday and am taking off of work tomorrow to party with my husband all weekend. This birthday party just keeps going and going and going... Lucky me!

Thanks for the shout out and for remembering me!

BTW: We're planning to be in Wonderland over Labor Day weekend. Hopefully we can get together.
