Pumpkin eater

Ok, ok, I know I’ve been kind of a cheater blogger. My Saturday post wasn’t anything more than a video (but, let’s face it, my kid’s freakin’ hilarious), and last night’s blog was a cop out very last minute moment of inspiration. But ever since I screwed myself by saying this would be a daily blog, I’ve had to just keep on truckin’. Because no one’s a bigger task master on myself than….myself. But I kinda dig that in a way, because it is forcing me to sit and be creative every single day, even if that creativity comes out as a post that simultaneously includes the ideas of Silly Putty and porn (that shut the comments right down, I’ll tell ya). So this is good. This is all good.

Another bonus of blogging is that it’s inspiring me to take on other projects. For example: this weekend, the Lorso and I enlisted my sister to take the Bug to the park and lunch while we had 3 whole hours to ourselves in the house. This, like, never happens. So, what did we do with our glorious freedom? We rearranged our furniture! We know how to have a good time.

This was great fun for me, as I love shaking things up every so often. Not so for the Lorso. He is a creature of habit, a friend of familiarity. He is also the one who moves most of the heavy stuff when we do this kind of thing. Like the time I was 6 or 7 months pregnant and wanted to rearrange the living room, (which included a couch, a loveseat, a tv stand, and a bookshelf), and after he spent an hour heaving and grunting and shoving the furniture until it had been rearranged into every possible configuration, I looked at it with my head cocked to one side and my nose wrinkled and said, “Hmmmm. No, I think maybe the way it was was just fine, now that I’m looking at it.”

Ok, so maybe I see where he’s coming from with the not liking change thing.

This change turned out ok, though, and the Lorso and I are still on speaking terms, which is an added bonus. Although, hang on, now that I’m looking at the living room, maybe it was better the other way…
