Clean Up Time

I guess Renata decided that she had caused enough destruction in Ty’s life for one week.  I took the doggies on a run past his house this morning and it looks like she tried to clean up a little, but the yard is pretty much destroyed and it looks like she had some workmen doing repairs inside the home too.  What is wrong with her?  Ty is such a nice man and she treats him terribly!

Beefy kicked the bags and they sounded like they are mostly bottles.  I am going to let that chatty religious lady who stands downtown handing out pamphlets about alcoholism and drug abuse know Renata's phone number and address so she can spend some time counseling her.

Meanwhile, Renata’s car is gone and I can’t imagine she will want to be there when Ty gets home tomorrow.  There is no reason for her to be there either, since St. Lah Lee stepped in once again to save the day, and take care of the dog. All the dogs really.  I have heard from many, many dog owners thanking me for finding their pets today.

Happy to be in a safe and loving home after the horrors of his week in the care of Renata, the snake.

Feeling Blessed

The foreign family down the street has been out of town this week, but I kept hearing noises from their house.  Finally last night I made Röbert come walk by the place with me to see if he heard it too.  It sounded like distressed animals.  I love animals so much, and this was the family who had Beefeater hidden in their garage last summer, so I insisted we call the police. When the police checked it out the basement was filled with caged dogs, including Dementor.

This picture was from the news this morning.  I am being hailed as a hero!

I have no idea what they intended to do with all of those dogs.  They were contacted and claimed they had no idea what the police were talking about.  Most of the dogs were returned to their owners, who said they had just disappeared this morning.  Strange.  I have contacted Ty to let him know that we will keep Dementor here safely with us until he gets home,  He sure sounded relieved.  I wonder if Renata had something to do with the dog theft ring?

Away He Goes

Last night Merlin got a phone call from his favorite teacher, Mr. Williams.  It turns out that he is going to be a”facilitator” (LOL!  What the hell does that mean!?) at the the nerd camp Merlin is attending this week and he called to offer Merlin a ride to camp.  It is a few hours away, so it was a relief to me not to have to drive him (and listen to him) all that way, plus Merlin was so excited to be going with Ty!  It really is nice that he has taken such a special interest in my child.  Everyone does tell me how much like me Merlin is.

Anywho, we decided to meet at the library this morning to hand off Merlin to him.  It was nice to see Ty and, while I didn’t get a chance to speak to him about Renata, I think that I was able to communicate quite a bit with my eyes.

My two buddies were happy to be together again, and Ty had some god awful sounding audio book to listen to on the ride.  Better him than me!

He did say that we should pick him up next weekend because we won’t want to miss the awards ceremony.  Ugh.  Awards ceremony?  You wouldn’t want to bet on whether I would be willing to miss that, Ty!

Röbert took the other two kids with him to some dog show thing for Beefeater this afternoon, so I have been hanging out, looking at Pinterest pages and making plans for this week while Starling is also in camp (Her art day camp, I couldn’t stand to have her away for a whole week!)  I looked out my back window to check on the progress at Karen’s pool (still disgusting) and guess who appears to have a new bestie?  Apparently snakes like to lie around in the sun with other snakes.  How convenient for me.

Where on earth did she even find a two piece?  She is delusional if she thinks a tan will help!

I have to run and call Cari about this latest development.

Little Things

I feel like i can be honest with all of you here.  You know me pretty well now, and you know that I am married to the hottest, kindest, smartest and most faithful man in the world.  But ladies, do little things about your boys start to bug you every now and then?  Nothing big like he has gross breath or gets caught embezzling or anything, just tiny quirks that get on your nerves.  Lately, a couple of things about Röbert have been driving me nutty!

These shorts.  I mean jorts.  Hideous.  He is a cute guy.  Why Röbert, why?

I almost died the first time I saw him wearing these!

Likewise this shirt thing.  I have no idea where he bought it, but ladies, if you see him out in public in it could you please recoil in horror until he gets the idea?

Who designed this monstrosity?

Finally, his mother has been trying to foist off his favorite chair on us.  Röbert loves to watch sports in it when he is at her house and now she wants it disgracing mine.  I hope he realizes that we will not be watching sports over here!  We only watch high-minded PBS and BBC shows in my home!

Next he's be carting home her lampshade too.

I have just been feeling testy with him lately and I can’t put my finger on why.

Ladies, what little things make you all bothered with your big boys?

 

Happy Anniversary

Did you forget?  That’s okay.  Today is the one year anniversary of my first post on this blog, but you can send gifts anytime, LOL.

I have been through so much in the last 12 months.  And you, readers have been with me every step of the way.

When I started out the blog was just a light hearted lil’ way of showing friends and family what is going on with my hubby and our three angles.

Röbert and I even had a slightly risqué hot tub selfie on my first post.  Hot!

But then not one single acquaintance signed up to follow my blog, so I knew that I had to make it more interesting.  I did this by showing the ways in which I, Lah Lee, make the world a better place every single day.

I make the world better by having a lil' me time on occasion.

In July of last year I made the life changing last minute decision to attend a blogger convention, where I met so many wonderful people.

I had to glam it up for nights out with my new friends!

Unfortunately, because of some late night highjinks, I missed every single session, but I did get to hang out with the special guest of the convention and get a very special photo taken with him.

He is a glamorous tv star but very friendly!

I returned home rested and rejuvenated and feeling like a “real” blogger!

It seems like I have spent a lot of the last year taking care of Beefeater, our dog who was temporarily living with my terrible next door neighbor.  Poor Beefy was so unhappy that he kept running away from home.  Saint Lah Lee would have to go out and rescue him over and over again.  If I had only realized how badly Beefy was being abused next door, I would have taken him back sooner.  In the end, he is back home where he belongs once again.

Luv ya Beefy!

Luv ya Beefy!

I have also spent a lot of time taking care of my precious children.

Hummus is getting to be so big and he is doing really well with his new tennis coaches.  He can’t remember the rules of the game very well, although they say that will be easier for him once he turns two.  I have been drilling him at night anyway.

He is very focussed and rarely complains about playing 5 hours a day.

Merlin is a genius and a terrific athlete.  Now that he is no longer allowed to play with his nerdy friends, I am sure that he will be popular in no time.

He could be popular, right?  It would be so much better for his sister if he wasn't so weird.

And of course my wonderful lil’ girl, Starling has blossomed into a real beauty this year.

Look at how skinny her legs are!  Lovely!

While she has been fighting a nasty rumor at school (girls can be so cruel) she has made a wonderful BFF named Amber.

I adore these two!

And she and I have had many happy times together.

Just spending time with this bundle of smiles is my greatest pleasure.

Super Gal in every way!

Of course my steady date, Röbert is the best husband in the world.  I love him so, so much and he has never so much as looked at another woman.

My hunk of love!

It has been a wonderful, fabulous, dang-gum amazing year!  I look forward to spending many more with all of my bloggy friends.  Especially the famous ones!

I had a special photo shoot to celebrate my one year anniversary.  Steven Meisel had to cancel at the last minute but a big shout out to Glamour Portraits at the Middletown Mall.  I think they did a great job!

Beefeater is a Champ!

I am tired after our late night Memorial Day festivities.  A lot of people showed up and we ran out of ribs, but it was so nice to get together with all of our old friends.  I just love summer, don’t you?

Mitch was able to make it, and he just couldn’t believe the difference a few weeks with me has made in Beefeater.  Beefy looks like his old self again.  I did mention that I was worried what Karen might do to his boys, who are staying with her for a week or two right now.  Mitch agreed.  They are college boys but who knows what Karen is capable of.  Shiver!

Anywho, I couldn’t resist showing off the ribbons Beefeater has been winning.  That is right, Beefeater is a champion agility dog!

He won this one on Saturday!

He won this one on Saturday!

While I was running with Beefeater for hours every day to help him get back in shape (Lah Lee can not be seen with a fat dog! No!) I noticed how fast he was.  I immediately bought him an agility course for our yard and he is really good!  Then I started watching agility competitions on television and those ladies are not cute.  So I was out, but I decided it would be a good thing to keep Röbert busy since he has a lil’ more time on his hands lately.  He has enjoyed bonding with his dog and they keep bringing the ribbons home!

It must be sad for Karen to watch her old dog, the one she thought would keep her company in her old age, the one she let her marriage disintegrate for, the one she cried and cried over, looking so fit and healthy as he practices in my backyard every evening.  It must be very difficult for her to see how much he loves me and never even thinks about her anymore.  Oh well.  I am an extremely nice person, but don’t make me mad.

10 Things to Know About Approaching a Famous Blogger

I have a very busy week ahead, getting ready for our big gala on Friday night, and  a special photo shoot for a special day mid-week (shhhhh, more about that later).

Now that my blog is becoming supper-popular, I find that I am getting approached by more people on the street who just want to let me know how much they adore me.  While I appreciate it, I want to give a few tips about how to approach a famous blogger so you don’t offend their sensibilities, since we bloggers tend to feel things just a little bit more than your average Joe.

1. If I am doing something important, like barre, do not bother me.  I am busy and deserve my me-time, probably more than everyone else.  If I am just dealing with the kids, fine, hop on over and tell me what you find most inspiring about me and my life.

I am busy here and should not be disturbed!

2. If you don’t have anything nice to say, keep it to yourself.  Bloggers have feelings too and we shouldn’t be criticized just because we have decided to post every single breath we take online.  You don’t actually know us.  That goes double for those meanies on “that” hate site.  You know who you are.

I am a living, breathing human being with feelings y'all!

3. Just because I don’t look like my photos online doesn’t mean I photoshop them.  I don’t even own photoshop.

I am naturally photogenic.

4.  My kids are out of bounds.  Period.  Just because I occasionally might post a photo of one of them to boost page views does not mean you can criticize them.

My angles deserve total privacy except when I  as a parent, choose to expose them.

5. I will be happy to answer most questions, but do not try to make yourself feel bigger by inferring things you know nothing about.  Röbert and I are extremely happily married and have never had any trouble in our marriage.

You can feel the chemistry here, right?

7. Hummus is absolutely fine and does not have a single delay.  Unless you are a doctor I have employed for that purpose, I have no interest in your amateur diagnosis.

Delayed?  He is a tennis prodigy!  How is your 22 month old doing in USTA?

8. If you want to tell me something sad or humiliating you have heard about Karen, I am all ears, but I do not want to hear about how you feel bad for her.

Double points if you manage to mention how dull Renata seems too.

9. Hands off!  Do not touch me or my children.  And especially leave the dog alone.  I have him trained of course, but he has a history of viciousness.

He still has an evil glint in his eye sometimes.

10. Please do tell me how pretty I am, how well behaved Starling is, how enviable my lifestyle is.   When in doubt, or when nervous to be meeting someone famous like me, those are great conversation starters.

You can even tell me how adorable we look together!

I think that covers it for now. I look forward to meeting all of you!
