Last night was one of those nights when I just couldn't take it anymore. Fritz would get his little fingers wrapped around a strand and pull with all of his little guy might. Ouch!! My hair had gotten so long that it was almost to the point of getting stuck in my armpits. Been there done that in 2002...not so good. So I told the Hubs to get his hair cuttin' scissors (he does his own) and whack off a few inches. Thinking that 3 or 4 would do well enough. I should have known better and NOT repeated my mistake from a vacation a couple of years ago when the Hubs got a hold of my hair with scissors then.
So instead of my asking for just a few short inches.... hmmm... maybe 7 or 8 came off! I think the Hubs had too much fun. "Besides," he said, "I love your hair short!"
Yep, should of known better. But, I have to admit, it does feel great to get those hair pounds taken off. Now I just need to adjust the color.

Also on the card was for a free loaf of bread, sweet treat or slice of pizza from a local bakery that is sooooo yummy-filled with all of their baked goodies. Yippee for us! What a good day out and half of it was free!
I had to have the Rosemary bread. I have been craving spaghetti so this is perfect for a good dinner. And the smell is so earthy and herb-y, I am salivating just thinking about it sitting on the counter. Hmmm... I might have to sneak a piece.

So off came all the clothes I had on 'cause Mom said something about how funny would it be if I was just in my diaper with the boots on. Isn't there some naked cowboy dude in New York? I don't like to be a copy cat, but what the hay! You only live once right? Although now looking back maybe I shouldn't have let Mom take my pic dressed as I was. I mean how many times is she going to bring that one out to embarrass me??

I have done the Random Facts (nice ones) in a previous post, but now I thought it would be time to spill some of the beans on the not so (nice ones). How fun are these?
- People who when they eat leave food all over their faces. So disgusting!
- Clowns. I'm not afraid of them I just don't like them. Anytime I see one, I want to punch them in the face!
- Socks left on the bedroom floor.
- Drivers who talk on cell phones AND smoke at the same time. I mean, come on! Isn't the cell phone dangerous enough?
- Dirty dishes in the sink. I have a hard time going to sleep when my kitchen is dirty!
- Missing caps from pens. If one is missing and not to be found I have to throw the pen away!
- Bubbles left over in the sink from washing hands/dishes.
- Soap scum that dribbles down from the dispenser.
- Crumbs left in the butter dish. Yuck!

I am actually working on an art piece at the moment as well with my "special" mixed media. Shhh.... it's a secret, can't tell.

So where, do you ask, does the picture above of Boo come in? Well, besides Boo always trying to find the sunny spots for his catnaps, this time of year is also for one of his favorite pastimes. As my naked feet are exposed, Boo has a tendency to sneak up on me and give kitty kisses to my toes! Well, rather he licks them. Sounds gross but actually it tickles more than anything. I guess it his way of saying he loves me!

When Mommy was first letting me eat solid baby foods, of course we had to try all different kinds to see what my likes/dislikes are. She hasn't found much that I don't like! Give me some fruit any day man, and I am a HAPPY camper! Love me the fruit! And yeah, I guess I like the veggies too, they ain't too bad. I do get an idea of what I am in for when Mommy opens up the container, and if she makes that funny face at what is coming to my mouth I get a little suspicious. Especially with Peas, yuck!!! They smell soooo gross. I can't believe that Mommy makes me eat something that she herself will not eat (she hates peas with a passion), but actually I don't mind them that bad.
But.... Carrots are a different story! OK, OK, I will admit I have been known to eat them from time to time but honestly they are not my fave or anything. Usually Mommy has to strip me down to my diapy if she plans on giving me the carrots as I have a tendency to put up a fight when I smell that orange goo coming my way. I kick... I stomp my foot... I try to whack the spoon out of the way... I even turn my head (yeah, that one doesn't work at all 'cause then I just get more crap on my face). Now I have noticed that my Mommy loves carrots. She likes them plain, with ranch, or her favorite way with peanut butter spread on them (yeah, sounds gross huh? Then again I don't really know what peanut butter is or what it tastes like). So I guess she thinks that I must like them too since she does. I don't want to disappoint her so I just go along with it and shut my mouth-well I guess opening it would work better but not as much fun!
As you can see in the picture below (if it is clear enough for y'alls computers) I had successfully gotten a couple of spoonfuls of the stinky, yucky carrot goo all over me! Mommy sure had fun cleaning me up afterword. Yep, she even told me she did!!
See ya next week folks! Fritz signing off...

When I walked into the store I spied a glorious color popping out and calling to me. AHHH... Strawberries! When I was pregnant with Fritz I rarely craved anything. Chinese food was occasional but I had so many food aversions during my entire pregnancy it was hard to eat really anything! I had two other cravings that were quite enormous. One was beer! I am not much of a drinker, a glass of wine here a beer there, but of course being with child this really wasn't an option. How funny to crave something that I normally don't eat/drink. I did succumb and treat myself to half a beer twice. Man it tasted soooo good. But the other thing I craved was, thanks to my friend Monica (who I worked with side by side for a couple of years) was Strawberries! She would bring in these perfect absolutely beautiful Strawberries and I would stare at her with drool running down my chin every time she would pop one in her mouth. Monica of course was so kind and would always take pity on me and hand over some of her treasure. After the first few I couldn't get enough! I think I must have ate well over a couple hundred towards the end of the pregnancy. After Fritz was born and Fall/Winter set in, I didn't have the craving anymore and out of season Strawberries are not that appetizing.
So as I am standing in the store to grab some flour I impulsively grab a box of some yummy goodness. I was so excited to eat these that even putting them in a drab old bowl would not do. I busted out one of my Grandmothers candy dishes to do the job. Somehow I think they tasted better this way! I also wanted to grab some Moet & Chandon that I have chilling in the fridge, but alas, still on cold medicine this probably would not have been a wise decision. Hopefully next time I grab some awesome fruit like this I will bust that bubbly out and have myself a real treat!

The outside air was cool and crisp, not cold and dreary of late. Wanting to hear the birds singing more and more I listened for awhile until I noticed all was quiet again. Oh darn. Oh well. They have gone back into hiding as the dark ugly clouds started rolling in for a winter storm on its way this afternoon.
I guess I will have to wait a few more days/weeks to have those beautiful spring mornings come alive.

When Daddy got home from his long week of work, I missed him sooooo much! I was so excited to see him that I couldn't even go to sleep that night thinking about all the things that I was going to tell him and all the things that I had planned for us to do! But alas, after a couple of hours of Mom and Dad trying to get me to go to sleep I finally gave in and went to dream land. The next day Dad and I played lots and Mom got things done around the house that she can't do while watching me. It was a good day but I kept noticing something that I didn't like seeing. It was a big black bag sitting next to the book shelf in the computer room. I have seen it before and have tried to talk to it to ask it what it is doing there (never responds, not nice!) but decided I had better things to do with my time. Ignoring it for a day I saw Daddy take some things out of it and got even more excited than when he comes home for work. Was he taking things out so he could stay and play with me all week?? I pondered this for quite awhile until just before bedtime I noticed that Dad was putting things back in the big black monster. What? Why? NOOOOOO! He was going to leave for work again, I just knew it! Well screw that! (oops, sorry another bad word-Mom is going to have to find some soap I guess.
So off I went army crawling all the way over to see if I could do something about this horrible situation. I didn't want Daddy to leave again so I thought maybe if I could hide his bag he wouldn't be able to leave! Yes! A perfect plan!
I crawled and crawled and launched myself off the tiny step leading down into the office area, tugging on the bag but it wouldn't budge one inch for me. I guess even if I had been able to move it where would I hide it? Besides, Daddy had his eye on me as he was working on the computer and I'm really not that sneaky yet. Give me a few years and we will see...
Dad started looking at me trying to reach his bag and told Mom that why doesn't he just take me with him this week to work! So he puts me in his bag to go with him. Oh Wow! This would be the best! I mean, I love my Mom but we are getting a bit sick of each other already spending all day long together and only having Daddy on the weekends. I wanted to go soooo badly, but Mom said something to Dad that I didn't catch and then Dad took me out of his bag. Oh well, maybe next time just me and Daddy can go somewhere special together.
'Till next time.....Fritz signing off.
P.S. Anybody know of a good pawn shop so when I am able to "dispose" of the bag next time I can get some cool cash??

I haven't finished the blanket from last weeks post (my attention span for longer projects like that is not so good). However, I did start a new scarf (pictured below). The picture does not do the color justice. It a much brighter spring green than the Easter egg/sea green in the picture. It will be a very long skinny double wrap around scarf with room leftover to hang below the hips. I love long skinny scarves like this for anytime during the year. I also make thicker warmer scarves for the winter months.

This is M.A.M. They are serious about their group. They do not like intruders or people gettin' in their business. They are a force to be reckoned with.
M. is for Melba Eugene (in the middle). She is the senior of the group at nine years of age. Although she has recently shed some serious pounds she is still the monster of the family. Any new people coming over to meet her, the first sentence out of their mouth is "Wow, that is a BIG cat". Melba is at a healthy weight at around 14 pounds although she is probably at 16 or 17 now. She is often called 'big fat paperweight' as she doesn't do much but lay around and beg for food. She was a farm cat originally and now her and the other two are all indoor cats. With her soft light green eyes and leopard spots on her tummy she is one of the most beautiful cats I have ever seen.
A. is for Alfalfa a.k.a Alfie. With her black and white body she is the smallest and youngest. Alfie is a little over three years old (so still very much the kitten in the family). We got her at the local shelter (Bozeman, MT) as a nine week old kitten. My husband says that she "duped" us, as in, when we were looking at her she was crazy about us and didn't want us to ever let her down. After she came home with us that all changed. But slowly and with patience on both of our parts she is becoming more and more a lap/lovey cat.
M. is for Murphy a.k.a. Boo. Boo is another shelter cat (Boise, ID) who stole my heart the first time I saw him. When he was a kitten he would always try to sleep under my chin. Now at the age of seven he still manages to get his big fat orange body under there. Although he doesn't understand that he no longer fits! He is my cuddle bug, always trying to sleep curled up by my chest with my arms wrapped around him (very nice in the cold winter months), or talking to me when I see him telling me he wants a belly rubdown.

I have a secret. Not many people, wait, make that no one knows. I would love to be a dancer. After watching a dancing program on TV tonight it brought back all those desires to shoot across a ballroom floor like a firecracker. Feel the heat and sweat and aching muscles of a fast Cha Cha or the simmering seduction of the Tango. Even the slow romantic Waltz with a silvery long skirt swirling around my moving legs. I would love to be able to take lessons in any of these. Test my strength and my bodies limits. Maybe someday I will do this and sign my name up to learn something new, something I have always wanted to do and become. But for now it will just be my little secret.

As I am typing this it is on our very brand new (only 3 hours since it was set-up) keyboard and flat screen monitor. My old keyboard would skip letters even if I hit the key. Very frustrating. The monitor is so much larger compared to my old big box one that I am having a hard time focusing as there is just too much more to see! The picture below is the new and improved computer desk. Love it!

It snowed all day yesterday stopping only for awhile during the early morning hours, then picking up again for people headed off to work. But this snow was gorgeous! It was the thick, wet, heavy snow that sticks to anything that it touches. The above picture is the tree above our house and although the picture does not show the real beauty I couldn't help but snap one. It seems to always snow on my Birthday.
Also, and sadly, there was a natural gas explosion in our downtown destroying one complete building and damaging two others. The blast was so powerful it threw a car parked in front of the building destroyed to the middle of the street. Luckily (they believe as it is still too early to tell) there were no casualties. Now our beautiful downtown will sadly have a missing hole for awhile. I am just glad that nobody was injured.
As far as my Birthday celebrations?? Who knows? I am thinking I will go get my hair done (haven't had that since May of last year) and I thought I might go to a movie by myself at the theater. I have never gone by myself and have always wanted to. I have eaten at a restaurant alone but have never had enough courage to sit in a dark theater to watch a movie. Hmmm.. I am thinking a chic-flick sounds nice!

Above is a picture of a baby blanket, non-gender specific, that I have been working on. I wanted to use multiple colors that could go with a lot of different nursery themes. The yarn is so incredibly soft that any baby would love to cuddle with it. And I hope to have it done by this time next week!

Hi there! My name is ***** a.k.a. Fritz. My mom decided it was time for me to start this blogging thing... Not too sure what a blog is but oh well! I will do as I am told (ha ha.. that's what SHE thinks anyway).
I had a pretty good week, but I need to get something off my rather small chest. I don't get what the prob is when my mom starts to freak out about my binkies. I mean, there are always hundreds of them sitting in their designated "B" bowel. (note picture below)
So what do you ask is the problem? Somehow they always disappear! If I don't get to have one after my food, let me tell you, it ain't a good thing. I have to have one, it's my fix, ya know? So why does Mom have to freak out so much when she doesn't have one on hand? I can wait(kinda). I will just cry at her until she gets one. Not such a big deal, right? I especially like to have one placed gently in my mouth right before bedtime. It's the best! Me and my binky have the best time together when we are ready to hit slumber land (um.. not the store-I can't drive yet, sheesh!). So as Mom and Dad were putting me to bed last night-Dad was holding me-every thing was in place. Had my blue blanket to snuggle with-check. Had a fresh diapy-check. Favorite binky-check, you wait... What?!?! Where the heck was it!!! Mom says something about seeing it pop out of my mouth and Dad says he has no clue where it went to. It was pretty funny watching Mom looking under the blanket, all over the floor, in the crib and it was nowhere to be found! Mom kept staring at Dad and his cool orange shirt (it's one of my fave's on him-I like the bright colors, man) when suddenly she starts laughing and pointing at Daddy. Now by this time I am confused and getting a little perturbed that they haven't just given me a replacement one already when Mom reaches inside of Dad's shirt and pulls out my Binky! Dad was just trying to hide it from me I guess. All was well after that.
Until next time... Fritz signing off.
P.S. I still haven't told Mom that I chucked one of the binkies under the couch!
