Roxie here. I’m writing a post once again to help Mom. She’s been busy with other things the last two weeks, so someone has to bail her out. You remember that she and Dad decided to paint the kitchen last November and what a mess the house was in for weeks? (They’re really slow. Like watching paint dry.) Well, you’d think they’d have learned from that experience. But no way!
Mom got the bright idea that since we did such a great job on the kitchen, and since it’s winter and we’re all stuck inside the house anyways, we should paint and add bookcases to the FruFru Room. (Dad calls it that because Mom hangs lace curtains in the windows.) So this place is once again in chaos. I don’t know where all their energy is coming from, but I’m pretty sure from the looks of them that they should be taking more naps at their age.
I’ve attempted to help the project along by supervising, but once again all I get is aggravation. “Roxie, Dammit, get away from the paint!” “Roxie, Dammit, bring that brush back!” “Roxie, Dammit, that’s a bookcase, not a ladder!” “Roxie Dammit, get down from that ladder!” I just can’t win!
Has anyone else noticed when Mom is involved in a project she always refers to me by my first and last name? And I wonder why my last name is different from ZuZu Sweetie Pie? And why don’t I have a middle name? Roxie Sweetie Dammit or Roxie Cutie Dammit or Roxie Snookums Dammit? And let’s not forget the book! I still don’t see any move toward writing a book about me.
And to make matters worse, it’s been snowing. And if that isn’t bad enough, Mom has decorated the place with snowmen. I can’t find a chair or a window that isn’t already taken. Some of them even dance and sing. Why would anyone dance and sing about cold white stuff clinging to everything? I’m seriously thinking of putting myself up for adoption to the first blogger who makes me an offer I can’t refuse and comes from a place that always stays warm!
I’m going to try to take a nap and dream of the days when we could all go outside and sit in the gazebo. Mom should be back on line soon, but until I get a better offer, I’m here for you. Take care and stay warm!
