I apologize for not giving you a video blog today.? I know that is what you look forward to on a Monday morning.? You wake up and say, “ahh, at least I’m not making an ass out of myself like Elle.”? Truth is it rained on Saturday.? The rain didn’t prevent me from video taping my day, but my demeanor did.? That and I didn’t shower until 11:45.? I’ve tried to video tape myself on rainy days.? It isn’t a pretty picture.? My affect is extremely flat and my brain capacity flies out of my butt.? There is video around somewhere of our trip to Ikea and the Dim Sum restaurant that (although it wasn’t raining) illustrates my point.? I just won’t post it.
To sum up our Saturday, the trusty husband mowed the grass.? I did some measuring for our new raised vegetable beds.? I ordered a load of topsoil and we drove down to the Tagro facility and shoveled shit compost.? All before lunch.
In the afternoon we made a trip to Costco where I slowly gouged my eye out with a plastic spoon.? *Note to self: shopping cart still needed for child at Costco.*? We went to the vegetable store to pick up something for dinner and tried not to list the child on Ebay repeatedly.
See, not really worthy of a video.
I was treated to a wonderful morning on Sunday with my girlfriends.? I needed that.? A lovely brunch full of chocolate and bacon.? No Neal, there were no bacon truffles.? Excellent conversation and a few glasses of wine.? I couldn’t ask for anything better.
I came home to start work on aforementioned raised beds and this morning I woke up to sore muscles and sunshine.? Which means… shoveling dirt.? I asked for the dirt, I must shovel it.? All 5 yards.
So since (I know you are dissapointed) no video I will make it up to you with a video later this week.? But instead I will video the boy.? I’ll conduct an interview with my 3 1/2 year old so you can bask in the glory of his cuteness.? Only problem is I don’t have questions.? This means I need your help.? If you could ask the boy a question what would it be?? I will use your questions as the source for my interview.

I hear you on the yard work! I’ve been raking leaves like a mad woman, and although Q loves going outside with me, it’s hard to get up the motivation to rake the back yard. The sad thing is that I raked all but one small part of our (back) yard last fall – after most of the leaves fell! You couldn’t tell that if you looked at our back yard right now.
I have a garden question for you: we have bunnies (why do people adopt rabbits and then let them loose – do your homework and either keep it, give it away, or eat it) in our yard this year, and since we’re putting the house up for sale, I want to be able to show off the yard. (You can stop laughing now.) Any ideas for “rabbit-proof” flowers? So far they’ve been content with the grass, but we don’t really have anything blooming yet – a couple of shoots that will eventually turn into day lilies, but they’re only about an inch out of the ground. Thanks!!
When do you want to spend the night with babada and dedu again????? Are you gonna eat all of mommy’s peas when they start growing in the garden? Have you been playing nice to Julius and Isis? What is your most favorite food? PS: Smooches and more smooches!
I swear I had that same idea and interviewed Livi last week- then I accidently taped over it after viewing it…. dang it…. so now I have to start over.
