Steely Dan - Any Major Dude Will Tell You
I’ve always loved this song.
This reblog is for Henry, I often refer to him as “major dude”
Today. Oh, today, today, today……
Was soooo long. I went to work to deal with emotional 3 yr olds and then went birthday for Henry. Every line I stood in took the longest. Everywhere I turned I was behind some dirty looking, slow moving ass in polyester pants with scraggly hair. I was tired and hungry. Then I see the college guys in their phys ed attire and I forget where I am……..
I’m just an over worked & underpaid mom trying to get from a to b in a timely fashion. I’m so happy it’s Friday.

I love you, I love you, I love you xo
This cat has been hanging around the barn for couple of weeks now. I originally thought it was my neighbor’s, who was in the hospital, so I fed it. I found out it’s not his and the other neighbor, who moved, abandoned his black cat. So….. this is the home of wayward/misfit cats. They won’t leave because I’ve planted the seed and fed them. I am a co-dependent jerk. Why did I feed them??! The dog goes crazy when they are at the back door. Husband is not happy about it. The kids named them, Fuzzy Balls & Blackie. Fuzzy Balls is nice but Blackie is a dick.
It feels like a cat farm around here.
Today was a good day. We saw the Nutcracker for the first time…. what a fantastic experience. Henry loved the music and little Maxine enjoyed watching the pretty ballerinas. Our seats were 2nd from the top (I’m terrified of heights) but once I got past the woozy feeling, I felt relaxed. It felt good to sit still for a while. Topped it off with Greek food for dinner.
