Why I am a horrible wife

by Lynn on January 28, 2015

I am a HORRIBLE wife
…because I decorated our master bathroom suite like this:

IMG_2368

Blech. Yucky. Ew!
In my defense, the bathroom was 25+ years old.
So, I asked my husband if he’d like to help me renovate.

REASON #2 that I’m a HORRIBLE wife:
I suggested we renovate the bathroom over Christmas vacation.

Er, that wasn’t such a good idea.
My poor husband spent every waking moment working on the bathroom.

IMG_2518

Not exactly a relaxing, fun vacation.
But we ended up with this:

Problem is, he did such a good job.
What renovations shall I ask him to tackle next Christmas?

During one of my archeological digs in Costco,
I discovered the REAL reason behind the extinction of dinosaurs:

IMG_0627

Essentially, dinosaurs engaged in too much sex.
All that’s left of their orgiastic lifestyle  is sensuous slathering sauce.

MORAL OF THE STORY:
In order to survive, species must display a high level of control.

IMG_2555

No matter what the temptation…
be it sex, surfing the Internet, or heart-shaped snacks,
a strong level of self-discipline ensures the survival of the fittest.

IMG_2557

Denying self-defeating impulses
will help individuals to another day.

IMG_2559

In conclusion, I’d like to recruit your help.
Help me stop overindulging in sex, Internet surfing, and snacks.

If I don’t develop some willpower,
my dog is gonna steal my checkbook
and buy gobs of dinosaur slathering sauce.

Why I’m holding my breath

by Lynn on January 14, 2015

 Every time I see my brother’s dog,
I have the following conversation with my husband:

IMG_2389

Husband: “No. He’s too big.”

IMG_2392

Husband: “No. He’s too big.”

I decide to hold my breath until he changes his mind.
And then I see my brother trying to cook dinner with his dog…

IMG_2440

Me: “He’s not THAT big.”
Husband: “Yes. He is too big.”
Me: “I was talking about my brother.”

Bwah ha ha ha ha!

Don’t eat birdseed.

by Lynn on January 7, 2015

It’s REALLY cold right now.
So I decided to stop at the local birdseed shop.
Might be nice to feed the brave little birdies who stay for the winter.

IMG_2810

Wait.
What does the sign say?

IMG_2811

Well, alrighty then.
Remind me to never, ever eat here.

Happy NEW YEAR!!!

I resolve to stop running over my dog.

by Lynn on December 31, 2014

In 2015, I’d like to stop running over my dog.
She lies right behind my desk chair, so every time I back up…YELP!

So I bought her a new bed.
This bed is EXACTLY like her boo-boo bed.
She LOVES her boo-boo bed. It’s downstairs in her crate.

IMG_2357

She doesn’t like her new “office” bed.
In fact, I had to leash her so she wouldn’t keep running away from it.
After a while, I finally picked her up and placed her in the new bed.

IMG_2356

Not happy.

IMG_2358

She left ASAP.
I cajoled. I pleaded.
I sang. I waved treats in the air.

Nothin’.

So I scooped her up (again),
and squished her into the new bed.

IMG_2361

Ahhh.
Doesn’t she look content?

Who melted on my floor?

by Lynn on December 17, 2014

We are ready for Christmas.

IMG_2321

It kind of looks like an elf went nuts in here.

IMG_2345

There are snowmen, everywhere.

‘Cuz I collect ‘em.
‘Cuz they always smile.
‘Cuz they make me happy.

There are non-snowmen displays, too.

IMG_2332

However, I’m a bit concerned.
There is water on my kitchen floor.
Is it from an ice cube? A leaky pipe? Or…

IMG_2347

…a melting snowman????

My illicit affair with Santa Claus

by Lynn on December 10, 2014

My husband isn’t happy about my obsession with Kris Kringle
…or the “elfies” I take with Santa every time I see him.

IMG_2812

This post is meant to assure my husband he has nothing to worry about.
For one, Santa has a LOT more wrinkles than my spouse.

IMG_2814

Oh, Santa. This summer, please use sunblock.
Perhaps we should also talk about Santa’s struggle with his glasses.

IMG_2815

I’m charmed by Santa’s white beard,
but sometimes he waits too long between trips to the barber.

IMG_2819

And then there are just some days when Santa looks…frightening.

IMG_2822

See?
So don’t worry, honey.
You’re the best-looking guy I know.

Love,
Lynn Kringle

How to look cute for Christmas

by Lynn on December 3, 2014

Looking cute is important, especially if you want someone to take you home.
This time of year, EVERYONE wants you to take them home
…and wrap ‘em up in festive paper and bows.
Sounds fun, right?

IMG_2776

After extensive research at my local Costco, I found the secret.
The key to winning someone’s heart is BIG eyes.

IMG_2779

The bigger the eyes, the better.
If you don’t want to spend Christmas morning alone,
make your eyes BIG…bigger than your cheeks, if possible.

IMG_2777

I certainly don’t want to spend Xmas alone.
I want Santa to take me home, but my current appearance won’t work.

IMG_2783

Thanks to a little plastic surgery,
I’ve increased my chances of a merry Christmas…

IMG_2783

Ho Ho…Holy cow I look amazing!

or…

Ho Ho…Horrifying?
