I know that is not a very creative title. And, if you are new to this blog – perhaps just cruising the WordPress tags – then you never knew we were gone. But there it is, and here we are. And here you are reading where we are. At home. At least, we are at home. I have no idea where you are. You could be in the bathroom at the mall for all I know. And it’s okay with me if you don’t choose to share that information.
I am a little light-headed, so this post is going to be somewhat free-wheeling. Our floors are being turned into masterpieces, and part of the process is a sealant that is quite potent-smelling. I am probably losing thousands of brain cells as I type this. I can’t really say that I dislike the feeling. It makes up for the margaritas I’ve been resisting so far on my Spring Break.
My daughter, Dimples, and I went to visit our relatives, The Globetrotters, on Monday to avoid the beginning of the whole floor transformation, which involved grinding and other mystical, alchemical procedures – as well as loss of the use of half of our house. It is quite a switch for the humans in our family to have a Forbidden Section we may not enter in our own house. Now we know how the dogs feel.
Dimples and I had a glorious time at the Globetrotters’, which I will detail in later posts. But we ran out of clean clothes – and did not want the Globetrotters to run out of patience with us – so we made our leave. We returned to a floor Mostly Done. And it is such an amazing difference that I am afraid regular readers of this blog will suspect I am playing a practical joke when I post the new pictures.
The floor still needs a couple of days to dry, so Wonderbutt and Mrs. P.I.B., our irrepressible canine companions, must continue to board until Saturday. We broke them out of jail for a couple of hours today because Dimples and I missed them so much. We took them to the dog park, and then to our own back yard, hoping to wear them out so much that they won’t notice when we abandon them for 48 more hours.
If I don’t succumb to the fumes, I will hopefully have more to report tomorrow. In the meantime, someone please identify this fish that showed an inordinate interest in Dimples at The Aquarium Restaurant in Kemah last night.
