I have been prodded.
My friend with the baby – (that is how she will be known until another friend has a baby) – told me in very direct terms yesterday that I need to blog again, it has been TOO long!
So, although it is really hard to write anything that has nothing to do with the work I am doing – I am going to try.
We now have fish. I would post a picture, but I don’t have one yet. I will work on that – maybe.
Ronnie had like 3 fish when we got married, but they just recently moved into our house. Actually, one of the three he had when we got married passed away prior to moving in with the new family. So, then we went and got two snails, (cause I didn’t want to have to clean!) and moved the two old fish into our home. Where our old TVs used to sit. (remember those were broken last year. Both. Of. Them.) So, now we have the fish tank sitting on the TV stand.
Two days later, one of the fish died.
Ronnie said that those types of fish are community fish, so we had to go get new fish.
We didn’t get just one new fish.
We got 5.
So, we then had 6 fish and 2 snails.
Then the two snails died.
Then another fish died.
Now, here we are, with the 5 fish, A rock vacuum, (the new addition to my appliance list), slime coating, antibiotics, etc. etc.
While they are fun to watch, I sometimes find myself asking… why? I mean, even the fun of watching them gets old after about 3 minutes… they don’t do tricks, don’t play fetch, don’t bark to warn us of strange things in the area…. Etc. etc.
Anyway, there – the new post is 100% devoted to fish.
I am still in the campaign – still alive and all that jazz. It’s fun – interesting – frustrating – exciting – and basically a roller coaster every day. I am sure I will have TONS of stories to tell when its all over with. But for today – I will just say – YEA for the fish…. They are the calmest (most calm? Not sure about my grammar there) part of my life right now.
