Just walked by my now-incarcerated neighbor's house; there was a cop standing outside, supervising the packing up of a young couple who've been living there while the owner's in jail.

The girl/woman has been hugely pregnant for months. She is tiny, yet with an enormous belly, over which she stretches camisoles and long bra tops. The boy/man has fixed the jailbird's motorized bicycle, which has been annoying everyone for weeks.

Another guy, wearing overalls and using a pronged cane, was also in the yard. Does he live there, too? And who was the guy cleaning up the yard yesterday? To whom does that great moss green 70s-era truck belong? I'd like to have it. Also, the weird semi-headless cement chicken in the front yard: what's the story?

Anyway, Mr. Overalls was nice to Sadie-Kate.

I hate auto correct that was supposed to say "didn't come up".

I'll be checking belfort, it's not too far from me!

Springy, I will look into la-z boy as well.

How do people with kids do it?! I'm pooped and it's only 6! Can't imagine corralling little ones at the same time.
You did all this in one day? Wow.

Goshdarnit, Carrie Underwood's husband is adorable and seems like a really sweet guy.

Default 2 words that strike fear in a condo owner - special assessment

F.M.L.
I feel your pain. In 2009, my "special assessment" was about $4k to replace siding and balcony walls.

We also had the option of purchasing new balcony sliding doors for $3k.

The condo owners should confront the association. There is no way you should be expected to come up with that kind of money on such a short notice.

Oops. Today, instead of saying "her" (in reference to a friend's stalker) I said "whore." Freudian slip?

My weekend in a nutshell:

- Saturday night my youth group's convention had Senior Night, and one of my roommates (the convention was held at a hotel) warned us that she'd be back around 4 and would come in quietly so as to not wake us up. 4:30 in the morning I get frantic knocking on my door from the staff because she was supposed to be back in her room an hour and a half before and they couldn't find her. So I got about 3 hours of sleep and zombie-d through all of yesterday and most of today.

- Apparently at some point on Sunday morning someone made me really emotional about the seniors leaving and I started crying and said something to the effect of "I have so many emotions and I just don't know what to do with them." I do not remember any of this.

- The longer I am a part of this Israel advocacy program the less I agree with them because they are just SO pointedly right of center. I am almost dead center/left of center most of the time and I don't speak out a lot of the time during our meetings out of fear of being disrespectful, but organizations like OneVoice speak to me a lot more than ones like AIPAC.

- I feel achey and exhausted from lack of sleep and allergies. Going to bed around 9, probably, and spending all the prior time writing an essay about Toni Morrison.

My fat thumb will make mistakes.
Thanks. He's such a happy baby. He's only fussy if he's hungry, sleepy, or wanting to be held. He's a huge cuddlebug.

My coworker now thinks I'm nuts for laughing at that. Yes it's a window and each pane of the comic is the kitteh looking thru each different pane of the window.
Thanks, missbanjo! Sometimes I have trouble with the obvious.
And the tentacle looking thingies are the kitties whiskers.

I've slept on it, and yesterday's decision has made me sad.
