A Mish-Mash and Kitty Kats

Our world changed in the past several years.  Do you think the following headlines (which I saw today)  would have been conceivable in 1975?

  • Fans bid Michael Jackson farewell
  • Al Franken sworn in as MN senator
  • US Wants a Strong Russia

My best friend thinks she might be pregnant at 40.  She is terrified and close to refusing to go buy a pregnancy test, thinking avoidance will make it NOT SO.  She forgot to take her BCP one time in a bazillion years.  I’ve already given away the crib and changing table she gave to me.  Life is funny, isn’t it?

I hate ants.  We have these little black ants that make nasty little larva nests in the most crazy places–you come across them unexpectedly while you’re doing things like weeding the flower bed or moving a rock.  Once I had ants trailing on my kitchen counter and I followed them to the phone that sits there…they had made, overnight, a nest of a bagillion larva on the hard countertop under my phone in the kitchen.  I almost puked.  Another time, they made their way into Woob’s portable stereo in his room and laid eggs there.  Last night I was outside sitting in my little Target brand aluminum lawn chair and kept feeling something ON me.  Turned to see that a bagillion little ants and their eggs were trailing into and out of the hollow part of the chair frame.  Again, almost puked.  I have never seen anything like this, and upon telling our exterminator, he can’t say that he had either.  I want them to DIE.

We are the new parents to two tiny little cutie pie kittens.  We haven’t named them yet, nor have we determined their genders…

Its funny that now that we have a ‘real’ child, as opposed to a furry baby, I don’t feel as smushy towards itty bitty kittens as I used to.  Maybe naming them will help.  For the record, Woob wants to “borrow them back” to where they came from. 😉

  1. Awww – New kitties! How fun. Maybe we should get them together with our little Mei Tai if we can ever get the boys together for a play date! I’m thinking if we bring along the cats, a pool party might not be the ideal activity….

  2. Your Woob sounds too cute!

    ants boo. I had to move from a long time rental (nearly 7 years) because we had a huge ant invasion. When it rained- they poured in our electrical plug in holes. Gag. I can still remember wondering the black line was coming down the living room wall. I used to say,
    “Glad you’re wearing black- ’cause you’re going to a funeral… ” Squish.
