Really, you can talk about your life and stuff on any post. But this is a post specifically ENCOURAGING you to talk about your life and stuff. The sun is never up, Courtney is struggling with anxiety, at least half of us are exhausted with Xmas work, we need a place to gossip and chat and feel community.
Dog story!!!! Albie Dog has discovered the wonders of blankets. He runs around and is all irritating and bouncy, and then you wrap him up in a blanket and plant him on the couch and he goes right to sleep. Sometimes he even wraps himself up, a couple days ago I came out of the shower and could not find Albie anywhere. I finally figured it out. Can you find the dog in this photo?
Baby story! My nephew is generally a happy little fellow now. One of you (maybe Catherine?) suggested that he just wanted to grow up, and I think that is true. Now that he can busily walk all around and put things where he wants them and just generally organize the world to his pleasure, everything is hotsy-totsy for him. Not so much for his parents, who have this never ending energy battery running about the place.
I should say, he thinks he can do everything himself, but he actually can’t. For instance, one of his favorite games is putting the lid on things. But he can’t take lids off. So he puts the lid on something, then trots over to a parent and shoves the thing at them so they will take the lid off, and then he happily puts the lid on again, and then trots over to a parent to take it off, and so on and so forth as the hours of your life drip through your fingers.
For instance, my sister just made him these lovely yellow socks:
And he promptly took one off and tried to put it in a container so he could put the lid on:
Okay, that’s my happy stories! Unless I am forgetting something. No, I think that’s it. Happy dog, happy baby, happy family.
Now, tell me what’s up with you!
