Valentine's Day Weekend: Went to Oklahoma with The Geej to visit my dear friend Julie and her two kiddos, two cats, and dog. Had a great time just hanging out. Her kids are so great, and she's such a good mom. Made me realize how much I miss them when I'm not around them.
The week after Valentine's day was pure nuts:
Monday: traveling back from Oklahoma. The Geej took this photo from the plane, btw.
Tuesday: federal jury duty. At 7:45am. Ugh. Went to the gym and worked out.
Wednesday: back at work with back-to-back meetings all day long. Came home, and my GORGEOUS new oven had been installed by the magical fairies from Lowe's.
New oven:I mean seriously, I know the photo's dark, but how much better does this look? And it cooks like a dream.
Sunday: continued work on the bathroom. Searched all over Austin for mirrors for the bathroom. Ended up finding them at IKEA, which is 31 miles from our house. I also purchased a new light fixture for the kitchen while I was there. Got home and realized that 2 of the 3 globes in the light fixture were shattered. Did I mention that IKEA is 31 miles away? When the hell am I going to have time to go back up there and return this thing? Grrrr...
Monday: Worked. Left early to go fetch The Geej from my mom.
Tuesday: Worked. Left early to take The Geej to her dentist appt. (She was SO brave and awesome!! Waaaaaay different than 6 mos. ago when she wouldn't let the hygenists clean her teeth b/c the noise of the brush, water squirter, and spit sucking thing freaked her out too much.) Met bunch of girlfriends out for drinks and dinner and more drinks. Got home way past my bedtime.
Which brings us to today. Fairly normal day, however, I have another all-day training thing at work tomorrow, and I have to be there an hour earlier than normal. Also, I have to do this pre-work and bring 3 copies of it with me to the training session. Have I done the pre-work yet? Um...no. Am I super freakin' tired? Yep.
So you see, dear friends, it has been a bit crazier than normal in my world. But normalcy is slowly creeping back into my life, so expect some more regular posting from me for the next few days.

Do all little children go through their "kitty kat" phase, or does it just seem that way?

2. You also won't be surprised that I discovered this video during my daily visit to Cute Overload.
2. I'm not sure which is my favorite, "We're in Hawaii!" or "Double Head!!"
3. This will probably be the giddiest, squealiest 1 1/2 minutes you spend today.

I brought the Geej here this afternoon via Southwest airlines, and we'll be here hanging out and bonding until Monday. We have a movie planned tomorrow, and a museum on Sunday. There are two kittehs and a dawg to play wiff and some cute kids to laugh at and some good conversation to be had.
Photos--and VIDEO--to come.

It starts out slowly...but when she gets to the graph of the industries that make up Iceland's economy and then launches into the song? Holy mother of GOD! Very, very funny.
I heart Kristen Wiig.

Well, go ahead and scroll down then. Read it. Look at the last photo. I took it last night.
Okay, now look at THIS: Can you even BELIEVE this shit? I lie on my left side when I'm sleeping a lot, and last night, every time I tried to roll over and get comfortable, I was like, "OUCH!" When I woke up this morning, It was totally swollen and huge and gorgeous (as you see above). I can barely lift my freakin' arm to do things like wash my hair or put my shirt on. BH is threatening to make a suit for me out of bubble-wrap since I'm so damn accident prone.
On some happier news, please check out the inter-species encounters going on in our house: That's Diane saying, "Hello? Dog? Are you there? It's me, Diane."
And here's Doug's less conventional approach at interacting with the dog.
No, we don't allow them to mingle...yet. But I foresee them getting to hang out at some point in the future.
Speaking of the cats, we pulled 11 cat toys, a battery, a chunk of broken glass, and a quarter out from under the oven tonight.
