My Life in a Nutshell

This is a video of me and my guy hanging out in the living room. When your child has little to no interest in toys, you learn to make your own fun. The flaccid, taupe-colored item that looks like a wet rag is Stinky Dog. You can tell when Stinky is speaking or singing, as his voice is a few octaves below ours.

Erik loves all animals except for my Gracie-Cat. Seeing her when he comes home from school actually makes him agitated. They steer clear of each other, which works pretty well. However, Erik has decided that Gracie does not meow but emits a sound best described as "ROUNCH." For this reason, instead of using her name, he calls her "Rounchy." My cat is the only feline I have ever known that can be infuriated purely verbally. The ending of the video reminds me a bit of the tragic documentary Grizzly Man. However, there were no animals or children injured in the making of this film. Sadly, I am another story entirely. This is why I keep Bactine on hand.

That made me laugh out loud. I love Stinky's rendition of "If your happy and you know say ruff ruff."

This video is the antidote to grumpiness. LW and I keep watching it. And then I notice how impeccably clean your house is and go hide under my covers.
