"put that thing back where it came from, or so help me...!"

So apparently my son was "followed" by a kitten at the park today. It's a wee thing, so I'm sure it didn't follow him very far before it got picked up. Fuzzy and grey. I'm not holding out any hope for the kids, but it's coming on night soon so I guess it can spend one night here. Not like we don't have other animals around. Just not many mammals!

Tomorrow: Pierce County Humane Society.

it's all about her

I just had D come and clean up what he'd left piled around my computer: a bowl of salad plus fork from lunchtime (much salad left); an empty bowl of Moose Tracks ice cream plus spoon (empty), and a small bag of gummy worms (empty).

D said, "Hey! Who ate the rest of my gummy worms?"

I told him the last time I checked, there was one worm left, and I did not eat it.

He stalked to the living room and confronted his sister.

"Did you eat my gummy worm?"


"Did you ASK?"


"Did you KNOW BETTER?"

"There was only one left! I thought it was meant for me, so I reckoned I could just eat it."
