We couldn't figure out how the dog bones were disappearing so quickly. Turns out Tallie dog is able to use her paws to pry open the closet door when it is not latched. Then she uses her keen little nose to lift up the lid of the container where bones are stored. After that it is all over.
hmmm....this might explain the extra pounds she is carrying too. Must be that and not the scraps of food Husband feeds her. Can't be the food Bugaboo drops off his tray either because while Tallie eats just about everything, she draws the line at mushed up baby-food peas.
In other news, ..... Tomorrow I am out of work for part of the day to chaperone a field trip for Munchkin. Whose bright idea was it to put me in charge of a group of 5 and 6 year olds? I smell disaster! We are going to an apple orchard. We'll pick apples and pumpkins. It's been raining today so I foresee mud in my future.
Talked with my mother yesterday. Now there's a downer. After the typical whining on her part (getting old, gotta drive to see her parents, they're getting old, not sure how much longer they'll be around, they're sick, what if she gets sick, she has no sick days) and passive aggressive questioning on her part (oh is he still in your bed? oh is she giving you trouble with homework? oh is he still out of work?) we hung up. It is nice to see her passive aggressive bullshit for what it is. And to realize I don't have to play her games.
Husband had an interview today. It was arranged through a temp service. The interview went well but the company has a hiring freeze. Apparently this plant can hire temps but not full-time employees until the freeze is lifted (hopefully January). So it is a possibility that Husband could be hired, then laid off again in January. He decided not to take that risk, given he wouldn't be employed there long enough to get unemployment benefits if he were laid off again. The work at daycare is complete so he's at home now. With a rather large "honey do" list. He's going hunting this Saturday and I'm sure he'll be ready to get out of the house by then.
It's typical fall weather here. Turned the AC on Friday evening. Turned AC off Sunday morning and opened the windows. Woke up this morning freezing and debated turning on the heat. Drive to work with heat on. Drive to lunch with AC on. Drive home with windows open.
Bugaboo has separation anxiety issues. Munchkin didn't hit that stage until later. She was walking when she had her spell at around 18 months. Bugaboo just creeps - army crawls sort of. Daddy is fine, unless Mommy is around. Then only Mommy will do. Ninety percent of the time I love it. But there is that 10% when I just want to go to the bathroom in peace! Nothing really like a little snuggle bug who reaches his chubby arms out to you and then lays his head on your chest and sighs a big sigh of contentment. And holding him as he slept in church was sheer heaven.
I went to the gym on Friday. I'm sore today. I'm also up 1.4 pounds in 2 weeks. I think I need to couple working out with eating less. But Husband is doing the food shopping and keeps buying Breyers ice cream. No one can resist Breyers. Plus he thinks "diet" food is too expensive. So he tells me to just ignore the junk food. As if I could do that? Doesn't he know that I wouldn't be in this state if I had willpower.
And with that, I'm outta here. My day is done. Off to pick up Bugaboo and see if Husband got the dog-proof locks......I mean child-proof locks.......on the cabinets.
