Magical

Photos, because...it's almost Wednesday. I have already lost my phone five times this week, it is the first day in a week I haven't had a fever (just weariness! yay!), I didn't sleep last night because of dog mouth noises and fever-sweating, tonight I had to declare an All Dogs Must Go In A Crate While We Eat Dinner Because I Have Had It rule, someone asked me today if I am joining Weight Watchers (this is after I let the nurse on Friday weigh me while I wore my boots and heavy winter coat, because I have been feeling so comfortable/happy with my body/appearance), I'm tired of tripping on snow/ice when I walk to my car after work, and Monk ate the wrapper from a package of raw chicken today.

So! A brief photo essay a few of the things I love most.

Dogs:
















The Roll, getting situated in the sun.






















Monk has a pointed skull and Cab has one limp ear. They also bite each other's teeth. It is weird. And clicky.





















Oh no! Where is Monk's head? Monk!

Also: my husband is handsome.
















This is my side of the couch. It is where I sit and write these terrible, terrible posts. Tonight The Roll laid on my arm, while I was wearing sweat pants, my husband's Ramones shirt, and a hoodie with hearts. Also: a cat hair covered fleece blanket. The best part of my day is when I put on pajamas, get settled in my corner of the couch, and am pinned down by a large purring moron.

I made my husband take a picture of us, because I declared the moment to be "magical" and "perfect." Please note we are in the blue glow of Swistle's blog post about her kitties. I think I need a kitty intervention.

Also, isn't The Roll's head sort of huge?




















See? Fuzzy head, couch, pajamas. It is magical.

















And, no. He's not at all creepy and enormous.






















Two huge, thick-skulled, whiney jerks. That let me hug them, hard, whenever I want.

Also, sometimes I find pet hair inside my purse.
















I have a good husband,
black sheeped

EDIT, EDIT. VERY IMPORTANT EDIT. I can't believe I almost didn't notice this horror:

I love your photos. And your captions. And you and your husband as a very sweet couple.

I was going to leave a comment about how adorable The Roll is, but then I realized that the WHOLE FAMILY is adorable! <3

Hi. You look so happy in the picture with "The Roll." It made me want to go home and put on jammies and cuddle with my version of a cat (my poodle).

I was thinking the head looked huge! He looks like one of those no-neck gangsters from the Sopranos! Cute.

Hee!

That's exactly how I feel, too.

That DOES look magical. I think the glow is actually coming from YOU.

Yes- we have an over-abundance of cat hair in our house as well—especially on my fleecy pants, blankets and comforters. Damn cats……I love your photos!

Who unsolicited-ly asks if someone is going on Weight Watchers? What a dumb thing to say.

Listen, woman, you are making me want pets. I need more dependents around here like I need more below zero days.

Also, your pets have awesome names.
