A Lion’s Tale

ImageOnce upon a time I read a study on why guys are so aggressive with remote controls. The study said it was because guys are lions. Since then when DH flips channels too far and the TV gets stuck in no man’s land and we have to turn everything off to get it back, I nod my head and think, “Yeah. Lion.”

That’s what I say about his aggressive driving, too. Honestly he’s a great driver. WAY too aggressive…I mean, Dallas aggressive, which would be fine if we lived in Dallas, but we live in Wichita Falls where everything is 15 minutes away unless you get stuck at the light at our corner in which case you can add 15 minutes to your travel time because that light sucks…but yeah, way too aggressive. And I just sigh to myself and say “Lion.” Okay. That’s a lie. I sigh quite loudly and grumble “LI-ON!” and it doesn’t change anything because that’s just the way he is which is okay most of the time unless we’re on Kemp Street on a Saturday and I wonder of we’re going to live because OHMYGOD there are too freaking many lions on the street on Saturdays in Wichita Falls.

Today we were on Kemp Street. On a Saturday.

We didn’t have a choice. The furniture stores are on that street.

And the lion in my life needed a new chair because the old one was kaput.

The good news: We lived.

And we got the new chair.

I thought it was for him. Now, I’m not so sure:Image

I love my lion. And the dog who USED to be mine. ❤

2012-2013 The Year of Change

For a regular blogger, this last year held a ton of distractions. It’s easy to see those distractions in my light number of posts.

From filling our empty nest with a teenager and a dog to building a house, it’s been quite the journey. My plan is to blog A LOT more from here on out.

If you follow my Mary Beth Lee profile on Facebook, you’ve seen these photos. If not, I hope you enjoy.

ON Graduation

ON came to live with us Spring Break 2012. She graduated June 1 this year! WOO HOO!!!!

Emmie

Emmie came to live with us last June. I love her like a baby. I’m serious. I’m a dog mom. She’s a rescue. She had a rough life before us. Now she has the easy life. It’s weird because I’d been a cat mom for 18 years and didn’t plan on having a dog. I ❤ Emmie.

Then there’s the house

The slab. We were so freaking excited.

Garage door. This is so funny. We got the WRONG garage door, but we loved it. Cost us $1k, but it was worth it!
