jericho is falling...

apparently, life is falling down all around my home while i am gone... while the tadpoles are thriving - i will probably be home before they hop away, hooray! - new frog eggs were laid while i was here, and although i told curtis to scoop them, he forgot/didn't, and now there is a new generation hatched. which means when i get home, if i want to fill the pool for the girls to swim, i have to murder hundreds of princes! (you know, frogs turn into princes if you kiss them) i don't think i can do that. life is sacred, even slimy tadpole life. sigh...



also, it appears that satchmo, in a fit of boredom and as a cry for attention, ate baby beauty, our blackmoor fish. i can't tell you how sad that is. i have been nuturing baby beauty with great joy. now he is dead. sigh...

and to top it off, curtis says the house is an abominable mess. and i am coming home on sunday. anyone want to make bets on whether or not he will remember/have the time/have the energy to clean it - even though i asked? oh dear...

If you didn't have a cat I would so volunteer to clean. I don't have that much to do. But I like breathing ... :-(

that is the nicest thing anyone has said to me in ages! in this case, it's definately the thought that counts! :)

Oh and I forgot to tell you, too ... I start back to school August 4th, but next week I am FREEEEE ... if you and the girls want to go swimming in a bigger pool to save the tadpoles.

For the record... Curtis did clean the house fully and completely, changed the sheets on the children's beds, and even had supper awaiting in a crockpot for his travel weary bride and children. Just felt a need to set the record state.
