Labor Day weekend





Truman is still familiarizing himself with all the different places he can get to in here! And, if you'll notice on the picture where he's all stretched out, he's maybe retaining his 'boyish figure'...after all, he's only eaten maybe half a bowl of food since we moved here! Of course, there are quite a few spiders here, so maybe he's snacking on those? Naaahhhhh, they're big & so scary I saw one turn around & look at him, and he turned around and ran! That's okay, I got it for him...

Seriously, when Tif & Talan were here the other day, I was in the living room with Talan, watching him crawl for the first time ever!!, Tif was in the kitchen getting a cream soda pop, & I faintly recall hearing her say "Dear God, that's the biggest spider I EVER saw!" If I hadn't been all gaga over Talan crawling, I might've paid more attention!! Duhhhh...

And I'm happy as heck that a guy came from the phone company today (Frontier phone co)...he hooked service up outside at the main line, then came in & checked all my phones to make sure they all worked. Yeah, he was eye candy too, and that didn't hurt any...hehe...we actually had a nice conversation about our favorite ice cream flavors...seeing as how I felt I had to give a perfunctory explanation of why I had a second refrigerator in my bedroom (he was checking the phones, you dirty minded people!)!

Well, my neighbor from across the street from my old house sent me a FB message today...he's moving in here, 2 apartments down! That's funny! I'll be able to be a neighbor without him having to shovel my sidewalk & take my trash out & everything! And Truman's gonna love having his old friend come over to pet him!

The apartment management is going to install shower bars in each bathroom next week. WooHoo! And I got my first piece of mail addressed to me at this address today. The squeeze bottle of honey I ordered from Mayden the beekeeper! I take that as a big sign of good luck!

BoUnCeS!! LibbY!

You sound upbeat and happy! That makes me upbeat and happy too.

I don't like spiders. But one of my best friends won't kill one. She has a "spider catcher." No joke! She catches them and takes them outside.

I have my entire house sprayed every three months by Terminix. I can't stand anything creepy in my house. I'm starting to icth now....

tlp...i want to do that, but i don't want to poison truman! mom & dad's friends in michigan lived on lake st clair, and every time we'd go up there & stay for a weekend, i'd scream from somewhere in the huge house (i was about 8, mind you!) cuz they ALWAYS had spiders, & the mrs wouldn't have any killed, cuz that would be bad luck...if i got bitten & died of a spider bite, wouldn't THAT be bad luck?? humph...

I'm glad you're enjoying Talon's crawling, because he won't crawl again until he gets married.

Libby said...

LOL@ Dell!

Spiders luv me. Especially jumping spiders. You know about THOSE, don't ya? I have the same problem here, they're everywhere but I don't want to use poison because I have the Gini the daschie and Daisy the cat so I subject myself to spidey venom. ARGHHHHH.....

You sound good! =)

If a spider bit you you would get super powers maybe you can surf the web (har har) faster.

Libby said...

Meg said...

Libby-Girl;
We are living parallel lives. I just got my first mail at my place too--all crapola bank statements and such (snore), but I heard from some relatives that B-day gifts will be arriving. Woo-hoo! Love the kitties. What fun roommates! I'm so happy for you, sweetie. You deserve an easy seamless life.
