Tuxie Tuesday

Mom is day hunting today. Silly Mom. She's been cleaning the house like a crazy woman, though for the life of me I can't figure out why - she isn't gonna be here. Clean sheets, clean litter boxes, clean out the coldbox, empty the trash, clean the human litterbox and the inside rain room, fold the laundry (finally) and all kinds of other stupid stuff.


Yeah, she cleaned that too. I guess I got a little carried away.


Millie's Mom Lynne here: WOW! Thanks so much for the birthday wishes! It was such fun to read them as they came in during the day, and throughout the evening last night. When I got home from work, I did talk to each of my family members. It was a great evening, and Millie was right - I didn't get anything constructive done!


I wish I had two things:


1. A recording of KidBean's singing at 6:30 AM. He was so sweet, so charming, and the song was perfect... at first I thought, "who is this? It's not PlusOne. And it's 3:30 in the morning where The PrettyGirl lives, so it isn't her..." Then the singing stopped, and there was a pause. "Is this.... KidBean?" I asked tentatively. "Yes, Auntie! You are right!" It was a real treat I will never forget. Thanks KidBean and MomBean, who made him practice before he called on the phone.


2. A recording or YouTube video of Mr Karate trying to play "Happy Birthday" on his cello (by ear, no music) and then playing and singing simultaneously.Wonderful, wonderful!



Those two magical moments, and all your wonderful birthday comments, including Mr Hendrix's air guitar, and Angus' Operatic aria (how did he know I love opera?) just go to prove that the best things in life aren't things!


Thank you all!


It's Millie again... You guys should go over to check out Roxy's blog today. She has some pictures of Mom as a kidbean... Auntie Karate is such a pest!
