Time for the March TUSAL update.
This afternoon, I tossed my ORTs jar on the bed while Lucy and
Ethel Pumpkin* were playing and snapped a few pictures. If you look closely, you can see a few threads in the bottom of the jar. The poor thing is not getting much action due to a lack of stitching on my part.
And yes, that is a different jar. For the third month in a row. After I knew there would be plumbers and work men in my bedroom to fix that leaky pipe behind my closet wall and they would see several jelly jars full of threads on my book shelf and think I was insane, I decided to combine the contents from all the jars into the large canning jar that I picked up last month at the thrift store and just use the one above for 2011. They can still think I'm insane, just not as much.
By the way, they plugged up the holes in the walls and re-painted them and they look fantastic. You can't even tell it was patched, or whatever the term is. Not sure when they will be here to install the new floor but we're halfway done now.
*My sister and I had Lucy at a new vet and when we mentioned we also had a dog named Pumpkin at home, he said we must be huge Peanuts fans. At first, neither of us knew what he was talking about. Probably because Linus and his Great Pumpkin story was never one of our favorites.
And, in semi-related news, this is hilarious:
P. S. Thanks to Sheila for the reminder it was time for a TUSAL update.
