My Head Hurts...

If any of you are vying for the crown of Worst Blogger in the Blogverse, you'll have to pry that tiara from my cold dead fingers.

It's mine, bitches.

Would you like to see our walk-in closet?


Yes. That's a toilet.

The master bedroom is tore up. We've hired a friend to fix it. The master bath is now, uh, our closet.

We close on our second house on Wednesday. Did I mention that I feel like a total money-grubbing asshole buying a second house? Like I'm fucking up the local real estate Sitiation? Well, I do. The bleeding heart? Maybe sometimes I do have it. Though I profess not to be that kind of liberal.

Anyway, closing costs are $6,000. Ramen, anyone?

We've put an ad in the paper to rent it out. The most promising response we've gotten so far has been, "Are you negotiable on the rent?"

I've been working like a bitch. 'Mud Season' is officially over and now we're entering upon 'Wedding/Family Reunion" Season. I'm swamped.

Last but not least, my little Zoey is missing. That's the first time I've admitted that to myself. I kind of don't want to believe that she's been gone for longer than three days.

With all of this happenin', I'm trying to avoid the spontaneous combustion dealymabob. Bear with me. Or don't. Your choice. This blog-bustion has been a long time coming. I'm over being sad and dwelling and shit, but I don't have anything amusing to report. In fact, all I have to report is some relatively overwhelming shit.

I've had a hard enough time keeping up with We 3 Bitches. See, I don't want Bonanza and P-Chef to think I'm all sucky bitch, so The Adventures of Zube Girl is playing second fiddle.

I really miss blogging, but I certainly miss my sanity more.

And we totally miss you! Everyone is entitled to have some off time from blogging....lord knows I've been there!!!

Good luck on the second house!!!

Look on the bright side (I just know how you love that phrase) . . . if you wash your clothes in the tub, you don't have to worry about unloading, sorting & carrying them to the closet :)

My brother's black cat disappeared for a few days recently. Just when he decided he'd never see the cat again, he showed back up. Even though I'm not fond of cats, I still hope Zoey makes it back home safe and sound.

And, well, if you can find me a job in the area, I'd totally rent from you. :)

My cat prince has been missing for three weeks =( Im so worried, I know you must be missing your cat! I hope she comes home soon

Storm said...

I'm hoping and praying for your little sweetheart. My cat Vex disappeared for a week (we'd only had her for a month) before I found her. I spontaneously went to talk to a city rescue team and found out that they had seen her while looking for another cat only the previous day. If I'd gone any earlier, they wouldn't have been able to help me.

So moral of the story, keep good thoughts focused on her and pay attention to any gut feelings you may have. {{{{hugs}}}}

Oh, and congrats on the second house. Don't think of it as screwing with the local real estate, think of it as providing someone with a good home and making money in the process.

Nice. I was thinking of combining my bathroom with my kitchen, but Maggie nixed it. I just figured I could get the whole input/output thing done at once.

It makes perfect sense to me. It's a Water Closet.

PaintingChef said...

You aren't a sucky bitch. Actually? I think I'm the sucky bitch right now.

And ZOEY! Come home to you mama Zoey!! Right now dammit!

Lisa said...

embrace the insanity and run with it! You know you can't really fight it anyway :-)

Crazy Lady said...

Poor Zoey! Come home, baby girl! Your mama is missing you!

Oh, and a care package of ramen is making its way to you. I'm to poor to send it UPS, so it is coming by burro.

Amy said...

Wishing a quick and safe return to Zoey!!!

Doesn't it stink how we feel so obligated to our blogs? During our whole house thing, it preoccupied every thought I had and I felt like it was ALL I could blog about because I couldn't think of ANYTHING else.

Hope everything settles down soon for you.

Gary said...

I think the Pork flavored Ramen is the best. Just sayin.

junebee said...

Think of the second house as a long-term investment.

Hope you find your kitty soon. >^..^<

How can I, too, have a toilet in my walk-in closet?!

justdawn said...

Here, kitty, kitty, kitty...

I miss hearing your daily updates...but if you need a break, take a break! It sounds like you have a million things going on right now...

But for those of us who are obsessed...keep us posted on the important stuff, mmmkay???

Don't feel bad about owning 2 houses. It makes me feel better about owning 4 cars!

Kylei said...
