Despair, De Pooch, and the Dark Side

Happy Friday Night, Y'all!

I KNOW you aren't reading this on a Friday night, right?
It is actually like Saturday afternoon and you are recuperating
from a fun and exciting
possibly after consuming refreshing beverages
and dancing the night away with your sweetie-

You're reading this on a Friday?!?!
No Way!!

I'm glad I'm not the only one at home on Google Reader on a Friday night!)

Even if I wanted to- I couldn't go do anything
go anywhere
see anyone...

Before I tell you why,
let me see if you remember these guys?

Can you hear the song?

Gloom, despair, and agony on me
Deep, dark depression, excessive misery
If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all
Gloom, despair, and agony on me

I thought of this song today as I
finished giving my oldest son
(AKA Middle Little)
his inhaler.
Because we went to the Dr yesterday
because of a cough

summer cold?



It was 109 degrees yesterday as we rode to the DR
and one of the Squirrels has pneumonia!

So we are home.
IN the house
for the WEEKEND.

NO Waterpark.
(sad face)

So this is why I thought of these sad old men on their porch...

"if it weren't for bad luck.... "

Take a look at this picture of Truman-
He looks terrified-
and I think it's funny!
He was laying on his back next to me on the couch-
guess I caught him off guard:)

 I better get a nice one on here too-
just in case he peeks over my shoulder-
I LOVE this one

He looks like he is just
contemplating the meaning of life-
maybe he is wondering what life is like
on the other side of the porch.

He could be missing his "girl"
(Chickadee is staying over with someone)

or he could just be trying to take a nap....who knows?!?!

I am going delirious!!

I need adult company!!

(Not that kind of "adult" company)

This is how I spent my afternoon:

That is a nice little truck if I do say so myself,
and I do.

We also made a plane-fighter-hover craft-thingy:

That was ok.
I could handle that.
This is where I had the problem:

Why is this a problem?

ALL of these little guys have weapons.
He knows WHO belongs to WHAT- Heaven forbid you put the wrong arms on
somebody- Cause he knows the difference!

And when setting up a battle like this-
under any circumstances
put a Jedi against a Jedi
or a Sith against a Sith
(Although you can put Anakin up against the Emperor-
as long as you are saying he did it BEFORE he went to the Dark Side....)


I hope to see you all tomorrow during the Blog Hop and Swap-
you are going to have to find me.......
(It's a really good teachery post too- I worked hard on it)
So make sure you go looking for me!!!


  1. I was going down memory lane there for a second with that gloom, despair, and agony on me!!!!! Been a long time since I heard that...can't say I've really missed it either. lol.

    I'm excited to see all the blog hopping & swapping tomorrow! :-)

  2. So sorry to hear about your son. That sure is one fine looking truck!

  3. Hahahaha love the Lego dilemma. At least you spent quality time together. Can't wait for the BH and S tomorrow!

  4. I love your post!!! Hope your son feels better soon.

  5. Sorry about the illness. I hope he feels better soon. girls love them (big secret). They won't even go down the aisles at store if anyone else is in the aisle, because they are for boys and they get embarrassed looking at them. Yeah, the girl line is not a favorite here. We have some. Those weapons drive me cray cray. I can not ever get them unstuck. Help me if they put something in the wrong place and the things get stuck together.

  6. So that Lego scene made me think of....
    "Let's do this! Leeerooooooooooy Jeeeeeeeenkinsssss!!!!
    Hope Middle Little has a speedy recovery.

  7. And now all I'm singing is "Where oh Where, are you tonight? Why did you leave me here all alone?" =)
    Sorry for the littles being sick. That is not a fun way to spend your summer.

    1. "I searched the world over and thought I found true love...."
      We LOVE Hee Haw-
      we used to DVR it on the RFD channel- but new shows got in the way!
      He is getting better- we'll get outta here eventually!

  8. So glad there are others who remember and SING Hee Haw songs! Cracks me right up!! I'm sure a dose of Hee Haw would make your little feel better...or maybe worse...Hope he recovers quickly!

    Peace, Love, and First Grade

  9. I was out of town so I missed this - get healthy over there!!!!!

  10. Greetings from TX! I LOVE your organization system - I always go to find a book and wish I had a good system! - and I LOVE Tammy, so this was a fun visit. I actually read it yesterday, but I didn't comment in. Then I read Kim's JOYful "rule of 3" suggestion and I came back to say "hi!"

    Summertime smiles,

Thanks for leaving some "Nutty Chatter!"
