We signed the papers today, we're damn near homeowners. Friday's the big day, and you know what they say: "When god takes a kitty's eyeball, he gives you a house and a mortgage." We're in the midst of a Jewish holiday, Rosh Hashanah (the New Year), and Max and I will celebrate by furniture shopping. Which is really the only thing we've been doing for the last 2 weeks. But holy crap, have we found some amazing stuff. It's OK to furnish an English cottage in mid century modern, right?

Speaking of disgusting things you don't really need to read about, we were at IKEA over the weekend, and Samson got fussy. No, really. I'm not joking. So I did my normal thing where I give him every thing from my purse, his diaper bag, etc, to keep him occupied. And when he ran out of things to open, close and chew on, I gave him one of the paper IKEA tape measures. And the next day I found the number 28 in his diaper. Seriously. I'm sure I'll find weirder things in his diapers in the future, but that was awesome. It was all I could do to stop myself from taking a picture.

oh man, I laughed out loud. And it was a hearty from the gut laugh. I so get it.

That is AWESOME!!! You should have taken a picture... I have to admit that as a mom of 5, I have taken pictures of grosser things.
Congrats on the house(and making it to adulthood and the husband and the baby... since I have not talked to you in 15 years!)

I agree you should have taken the picture. Congrats on the house, it must be really exciting. Paul showed me pictures and it is so beautiful. I can't wait to visit.
