IN OTHER RANDOM NEWS

.
.
.
Good evening, and welcome to another post of random, insignificant news in the life Rexburg, Idaho.
.
.

.
.
1. Well, this is all that is left of my tulip bouquet.

.

.

Obviously, even these guys aren't gonna last much longer. Hopefully the ones outside will be blooming before the end of the month.

.

.

2. I love the view of this tree from our kitchen window. I have an entire collection of random pictures on my computer that I've taken after stopping in the window to admire its splendor. Sadly, the camera fails to capture its wild beauty. Every single photo seems to look like a regular 'ol tree.
.
.
.
.
3. I laughed out loud today when I realized my pile of dirty laundry is currently as tall as I am. Literally.

I did not include a picture of this for several reasons: a.) It's embarrassing and b.) It is too difficult for me to look upon without feeling very, very tired.
.

4. These are the neighbors dogs...the neighbor's dogs who are allowed to roam free and poop when never and where ever they happen to feel the urge. Unfortunately, that urge seems to arise too often, on our lawn.

I hate their stinkin', discourteous guts.
.
.
.
.

We've discovered that yelling, screaming, throwing things, and making loud noises doesn't work. They simply return the moment we leave. So, our strategy has changed. We will now earn the dog's trust, lull them into a false sense of security, and then...
EAT THEM FOR DINNER!!!
.
WAHAHAHAH!
.
.
Okay, fine. We're still working on the details of our diabolical plan. All suggestions are welcome. And don't automatically rule out anything that includes a paintball gun, a bazooka, and/or shovels.
.
.
P.S. It's best that you don't mention anything about how cute they are. This situation has rendered us unstable, and at this point, eating YOU for dinner has not been entirely ruled out either.
.
.
.

.
5. Oh, and in other random news...the other day, we were given a car. For free. As in with no payments. As in a '98 Miata convertible.
.
.
.
.

Here's Andrew having just driven it home from work that first day. He doesn't look all that pleased now does he? I think he's in love.
.
.
I'm not sure what to do with it. I mean, we can't drive it. It deserves to be in commercials and Hollywood movies...not transporting us to buy bread and milk from the local, small-town grocery store.
.
.
But I'm sure we can find some use for it. How about a country drive in the spring? How about a summer star-watching date with my sweetheart? And why do I have this sudden, passionate desire to take a drive down the Oregon Coast when school gets out? Cow-a-bunga, baby!
.
.
.
.
Anyway. Until next time, this has been another post of Other Random News.

Confession: I read your blog EVERY new post, within hours of it being posted. And I never comment, but I always want to and tell myself to. It's entertaining and uplifting to follow your blog! Plus I think you're one of the coolest couples ever. So... I wanted to say thanks for the recent bedtime story -reading it I felt like I was there. And I was screaming with you(holy cow!) until the muskrat was seen running down the street. And I think it's pure awesomeness you two have a new free miata on your hands! And I hope you're feeling better today. And it sounds like you used your spring break wisely and perfectly. And since you're a teacher I'm sure it's killing you that I've started every sentence with "and". I'm done now... I'll try to be better at commenting. :)
