A blog named BETTY

Skack to Bool

I did some back-to-school shopping for BETTY. After all, it's hardly fair to spend on everyone else and leave her out. Doesn't she look fetching? Poor thing hasn't had a new look in ages. Why, it's tantamount to blog abuse. Anyone know a support group she can go to?

And speaking of back-to-school, the shnookies are...well...back to school! It's a pretty big year for all of them, with #1 starting his SENIOR year, #2 starting her first year in high school, #3 being top of the heap in 6th grade, and #4 launching into 4th grade--the signal of her downward trip in grade school. Oh my, I think I lost an inch just thinking about it--I am an old woman! (See how that works? I started out talking about them, but it always ends up about me.)

And speaking of me, I have to admit that it was a heavenly day for me. With the kids back in school and Hubby out of town, I had the whole house (except for the 6X6 area occupied by Boozer) to myself. I savored, I basked, I reveled. And then I went inside and put my clothes back on.

I have absolutely nothing clever to say after that blog except that I just snorted Diet Coke through my nose.

Cool new kicks, Betty!!

nuh uh - I'm going to argue with you that #1 is a senior. nuh uh.

(apparently I'm not going to argue with intelligence or logic)

YAY for back to school! Boo for kids growing up and causing parental shrinkage (snort - ha!). YAY for nekkid-ness!

F.I.N.A.L.L.Y.!!!!! Betty has been filling my inbox, BEGGING for a new look, but I just didn't know how to broach the topic with you. So glad you figured it out without involving me! :)

Your kids getting old means I'M getting old (see, I can always bring it back to me, too!).

Savor, revel, and bask a little for me, I won't know such joys for many years!

Thank goodness for you Erin -- I needed a good laugh and naked joke in my life! Gid answered the door naked today and I didn't even hear the doorbell. I'll send him to hang out at your nudist colony.
