Well, I didn’t post all weekend and I usually do, at least once. John is on vacation and we are trying to knock out some of these household projects. Yesterday we rented a Rug Doctor and shampooed the girls rooms, upstairs hall, stairs, living room rug and our bedroom carpet. That is every bit of carpeting and rugs in the house. Oh, and I even gave the upholstery attachment a try on the chairs in the living room. It worked great! The younger piglet daughter’s room was by far the worst. Mostly because she is guilty of sneaking her wee, small dog up there for sleepovers and not getting up in time to let her out. This particular dog has always had a tough time holding her pee and so… she doesn’t. And her owner just decided she was tired of cleaning it up and there were several pee places that just disappeared and several large soda spills AND a huge-ass milkshake (I’m guessing) of some sort spill. All gone. I feel really good about the carpeting in this house now and hey, isn’t that what it’s all about. Can I hear an “AMEN”?
John went out this morning and got two new ceiling fans and a track light for over the fireplace so H can read her paper without the lamp that should be back behind our chairs, that we need cause hey, our eyes are old and crippled too. The old track light blew up or something, and now we’ve got this shiny new one. Halleluiah! The ceiling fans are because the old ones in the L.R. and breakfast area have shorts in the light kits that we have tried over and over to fix and they just can’t be. So I guess I know what we’re going to do today. Oh, that and torture groom the hairy dog in the backyard.
This is an actual conversation I overheard between two dust bunnies in my house. Imagine Cheech and Chong style “accents”, cause, Yes. they are that rowdy.
Hey, dude! Roll on over here and pile up with me!
Duuuude! I’m on my way!
Yeah, just a tiny bit bigger and we can make a whole new dog!
I’m pretty sure we’re smarter than these dogs.
Yeah, it won’t be long and we can take over this whole household. We’ve just gotta hide behind a piece of furniture and if that crazy-bitch looks back there she pretends she doesn’t see ya. It’s when you break free and go rolling across the floor that you get noticed.
What about that man, dude?
Naww, he’s too tired when he gets home to be picking up anything off the floor. As a matter of fact I’ve noticed that he seems in the business of leaving things on the floor. The crazy-bitch keeps doing these deep sighs and shooting him evil glares.
What about the old lady?
Dude, she’s blind as a bat. She thinks she’s living in a freakin’ palace!
Yeah, well she’s got hot and cold running crazy-bitch. They fooled her into thinking it!
Those girls though. What about them? Do they pose any kind of threat?
Are you kidding me? They live upstairs and while they are very rarely seen down here, I hear they have an entirely different breed of dust bunny upstairs. Carpet dust bunnies.
Dude, I’ve heard those are fierce!
Yeah, well, they’re breeding them big upstairs…
At this point I just stopped listening. I mean hey, I’ve heard it all before.

Hey. This is no laughing matter. You’ve got to keep an eye on those bad boys. There is a conspiracy theory afoot here in my domain. Watch out!

Oh is THAT what those voices are? Lawd knows I haven’t looked under my furniture since 2003. There could be a militia under there. Come to think of it, my dog has become quite the anarchist and now responds only to the phrase “do you want a cookie?” and I’m sure that who she learned it from.
