A Visit From The In-Laws

My husband's parents came to visit this weekend. We celebrated my and SJ's birthdays together. SJ's is on the 28th, so he will have a small cake and a few gifts then.

SJ picked out what will be his last non-gfcf birthday cake ever. It had Blue's Clues on it. He picked it out because it had a clock on it.

He now says "cock" for clock. When we picked up the cake, he was sitting in the cart yelling, "Big cock, big cock!"

It will be nice when he can squeeze the letter "L" in there.

My husband didn't think he could see a difference in his behavior after letting him have the cake. I thought I could see a noticeable difference.

He seemed less focused to me. Back on his diet he shall go and he is staying there this time.

My Verizon contract expired in December. I called them to make sure they turned off my account.

Recently, they sent me a refund check and a bill for zero dollars and zero cents. Will I be getting bills for zero dollars and zero cents every month until the day I die?

"Verizon, we never stop working for you."

There was an article in the business section today on home staging. This is where you de-personalize your home as much as possible in order to sell it.

You take down personal photos and remove your knick-knacks. You paint the walls neutral colors. The idea is to get the seller to picture themselves in the house.

I had a friend once who had her home staged to sell it. The stager had placed a fake pitcher of orange juice on the breakfast bar.

My friend had a birthday party for her daughter and there was food laid out and also drinks. Well, I thought the orange juice was one of the drinks and tried to pour some from the pitcher. Yeesh.

How intelligent I must have looked.

I'm the person you take to the party when you're worried about how you will look. It is a guarantee that I will deflect attention from you, because I will always make at least one faux pas.

Is it any wonder I am an introvert?

My "Oh Yuck Encyclopedia" popped up. Whoopee!

Today's gross fact is about Australian Social Spiders.

When Australian Social Spiders are born, the mother becomes their food. The babies suck her blood until she is so weak she can't move. Then they barf all over her, turn her into mush and finish eating her.

I told you babies morph into teens!

"The idea is to get the seller to picture themselves in the house." You mean "buyer"? Otherwise, I don't get it?

(But I bet most buyers, trying to picture themselves in a house, would include a big load of laundry and some dirty dishes.)

Oops, Hoss. Yes, I meant buyer.

Once the house gets clean enough to sell, the seller will know they're in the wrong place.
