they pay to kiss your feet

since there's no one else around, we let our hair grow long and forget all we used to know. then our skin gets thicker from living out in the snow.

one rocky weekend

so, rocky came over. and he terrorized gus. poor gus. rocky was so cute walking up to our house. only he was not the dog in the picture. no way. he was a fat pug and he sounded like a pig. but he was cute and fun and then he saw gus. and in the hour he was over, he chased gus at full speed around the yard, around the house and around the couch. he also would go behind gus and push his face underneath him so that gus' hind legs were over rocky's ears. then, while sporting the LARGEST red rocket i have seen, rocky licked poor gus' private parts.

we are not getting rocky.

we do have bees living in the walls of our house. good thing we're getting new fiber cement siding. we were walking the siding guy around the house and noticed a hole in the cedar. and bees were going in and out of it like they owned the place. gus is allergic to bees - remember the puffy face episode a year ago? so, we sprayed bee killer into the hole and patched it closed. (when i say 'we,' what i'm really saying is 'nick.')

so, the problem seemed to be solved until saturday night when i noticed a bee on the wall of the bedroom. and then another. and then another. and then i heard the buzzing. inside the wall. we had trapped the bees and they had nowhere to go but to find a tiny hole somewhere and enter our bedroom to die.

so we slept elsewhere and i had nightmares about bees and what they can do. i mean, haven't you seen "My Girl?" McCulley Culkin was toast.

so, yesterday, we bought caulk. and we caulked anywhere on the windows where a bee could get through. and so far today, we've only found one inside. i am SO ready to get the new siding.

    So sorry to hear about Rocky! What a bummer. He looked like such a cutie! But if you and Nick are serious about adding another family member (and trust me, it's addictive!), seriously consider the Midwest Pug Rescue. Such a great cause with wonderful dogs!

    Oh, and okay, the bee thing scares the crap outta me. Ick!!
