Hedging our Bets

It's been a busy week here.

Bones got his braces off. He said his teeth feel big and slimey.

We got a hedgehog last night. His name is Shrub. We had to drive out into the sticks to pick him up. Way out. Way. Out.

I walked into the house, having traveled backroads for 30 minutes (T drove since I, evidently, don't drive anymore), and they had a kangaroo in the living room.

Who has a kangaroo as a pet? He was a baby... about 2 feet tall. What's up with that?

"Come to my house. We have hedgehogs, kangaroos, ..." Odd.

Anyway, he is home and the boys are very happy, bonding with him. He's not exactly warm and fuzzy.

It's been busy for me at work and in my volunteer life. I was about to beat my head on the desk the other day over something so amazingly absurd when I said to a co-worker, 'There is a tree outside that he needs to be hanged from...'

And that is when he told me this amazingly funny quote that I have to get from him again, something about there being a difference between disliking someone and disliking someone so much you want to strangle them, stab them, drag them back to their house and burn the house down around them and it was that difference that saved most of the people in our society.

Holy crap.

So lately I've been saying, 'That strangling, stabbing, burning the house list is acquiring names..."

I have to get that quote and I'll put it out. It's my new favorite saying.

Ringo is home from college. He seems to be content to sleep, eat, and go to the gym. He's good. He leaves in 10 days to go back.

He's not dreading it... but he's enjoying being home.

Busy. I'm busy without having kids to worry about getting back into the school zone. I can't imagine how busy you must be about now. LOL.

Yay on Bones getting the braces off!

Yes, we must have pics of Shrub.

Kangaroo? Really?

Okay I need to get back to work.
