Thursday Laundry Open Comments

Came home last night to find that CNBC deigned not to allow the public to view the debate, but I found it on Youtube afteward. Stayed up to watch it on my phone, washing dishes and laundry while doing so.

Woke up this morning to find my last load didn’t spin and was sopping wet. So I had to wring and hang my momma’s unnerwares.

Sorry to be so late opening up the Couch. Y’all come on in. I’m sure we have lots to talk about, given the fodder from last night’s debate.

Monday Open Comments

Well, my sister provided today’s OC topic.

Brian is one of the coolest relatives I have. Sister’s son and his wife Angela really seemed to be a good fit, though I’ve only seen them together a few times. Angela’s family (the women, anyway), were a real hoot at her bridal shower.

Congrats to Brian and Angela. This video was Brian’s first year anniversary gift to his wife.

Friday Open Comments – Playing with Cars

Playing with cars

LD2 has reached another milestone!

Yesterday, it was raspberries.

Today, she’s walking.

I can just see Sunshine getting her sister into all kinds of trouble…when two sisters get together and they’re both mobile…

I’ll bet Sunshine teaches L’il Darlin’ how to crawl through the doggie door.

OH, AND TODAY IS LOVELY DAUGHTER’S BIRTHDAY! She lurks, so everyone say happy birthday to her.
