Friday Fun

I get this email from my son:

Subject: Where is Bailey?

And in the body of the email this picture:

Can you find him?

That totally cracked me up! Bailey is such a character! When he gets cold, he burrows.  Of course it helps that my lazy sons don’t make their beds because, they claim, that’s how Bailey likes it.

My sons are FAILS! for laziness. But not Bailey, he rocks!

In other news, Wizard left me alone again last night. I had this big plan to go out and get dinner.  But then I remembered I had pasta and fresh vegetables and made myself such a good dinner.  My favorite kind of meal. Add a nice Merlot, and it totally improved my mood after a day of cleaning.

I hope you all have a great weekend!

    Aww. Bailey! He’s hilarious. Now I want a dog that burrows in the blankets. I just have Kira who jumped on the couch where I was laying and flopped her 15 lb butt on my head last night. And Max who played walk through the stickery weeds yesterday and needed major grooming. This morning I want an easy pet.

    Your evening sounds nice and relaxing. Sorry the Wizard keeps leaving you alone, but at least you’re getting some quality me time. =o)

    More alone time. I usually have to go off on a Girl Scout Leader retreat in the woods for a weekend to get my alone time. Enjoy every minute. We women do not take time enough for ourselves. I will whip up a spell or at least cast a wish that this weekend all of my sisters get at least 3 hours strait just for them. Use them as you will ladies.

    Oh as for your ealier offer of sending Ram. To bossy huh. Is that only in the bed room or will he decide what we are having for dinner and when the dog needs out and tell the kids that it is time to clean thier rooms. I am ready to let some one else be bossy if it means I don’t have to do it all. I could use some broad shoulders to unload part of my weight on to.

    I hope to take my three hours and window shop a bit. Christmas is how far away? 8-O

    Bailey is so darn cute. Pee Wee does that too. In fact Cassie has a blanket that’s just for him to burrow into.

    You know I think boys are predisposed to not make beds. My middle one is the only one of my three that makes his bed and only when he’s staying here. He never makes it in his sown apartment.

    Last night’s dinner sound yummy! Hubs is leaving me Sunday through Wednesday. I will be eating leftover scallops I froze from last Saturday’s dinner and then omelets and soup :).

    Enjoy your weekend :)

    B.E., oh poor Max! That’s the kitty right? He does find trouble. On the rare occasion Bailey has spent the night with me, he likes to sleep curled up against my legs under the blankets.

    Kira sounds funny :-)

    Wizard is done leaving me for a while now. I really don’t mind, I usually have my own work to keep me busy. But I’m always glad when he’s home.

    Kat, I remember when I’d have done anything for a little quiet time to myself. In fact, I’ve always gotten up early to have twenty minutes or so before I got the kids up. I don’t function well without some alone time :-)

    Give Ram three days and he’ll have your house running smoothly! Heck, it’d probably only take him three hours. Then you’d have more time for yourself.

    Christmas is coming fast! But I’m not ready to think about it yet.

    Viki, PeeWee sounds adorable. Aren’t we lucky to have them?

    Yeah, I suppose it’s true on boys. But really, I tried so hard to domesticate them :-)

    Ha, you thought ahead for your nights without hubby! Very smart of you.

    Yeah, Max is the outdoor boo. Last month, he came home covered in burrs. I wish he’d just stay home, but he’s a wanderer. And Kira’s our pudgy comedienne.

    Awww. Cute Bailey! The cat does that. The boys have too much fur. They get hot. Luckily.

    As for beds? Uhm…what’s the point? You’re just going to get back in them in about 12 hours. Making beds always seemed like a waste of time to me. ;)

    I’m with Silver, I never make my bed unless someone might see it who doesn’t live with me. Like, my mom….just sayin’.

    Bailey is too cute. It’s nice that the boys leave their beds like that for him.

    B.E., I thought Max was your kitty. I know he’s adventurous :-)

    Silver, shhh!!! Don’t encourage those slacker boys! Beds should be made because Mom says so!

    Erika, hey! How are you? LOL on your mom! At least you care what she thinks, LOL! I tease the boys, but as long as they take good care of Bailey and themselves, I can live with messiness when I visit.

    Bailey runs that house. Just saying… :-)
