A new pet??

Is it a tree frog? A parakeet?  A gecko?  A dog? A cat? A rabbit? A hamster? Sea monkeys?  A Hermit crab? A pet rock? A sugar glider? A chinchilla? A pig? A turtle?
nope, nope and nope!
Those were all good guesses, but NOPE.

yes, our new "pet" is a snail.
*rolling eyes*

honestly, i didn't think too much about him when the kids brought him inside the other day. they bring all sorts of creatures in, and want to keep them. so, i found a jar for them to make him a little home and they set it on the kitchen counter. surely, they'd forget about him within a few minutes and then he'd be sent back outside to where he belongs.
wrong again.

two days later, i found my dear daughter letting him take a stroll across my kitchen table
no joke.
i kid you not!

so, i guess its official, and he won't be going anywhere soon.
as a matter of fact,
he had a new little friend join him this morning..

i think we should give them names...
what'd ya think?

iggy and squiggy?

(thanks sweet twitter friends, you've nearly written my whole blog post today with all your guesses!)
 i honestly didn't even know what a sugar glider was and had to look it up. they are kinda cute.

Drinking: coffee...only i lost my cup...where did that go?

Reading: i think i've forgotten how.

Wanting: something to eat. im hungry.

Looking: at the little boy in pink training pants who is carrying around a package of crushed saltines in his mouth...i sure hope it doesn't open up and spill crumbs all over, but it probably will.

Playing: mind games with a toddler.

Wasting: the day away...sitting here at the computer.

Sewing: nothing...i should really start a new project, huh?

Wishing: someone would make me a whopper of a salad. i told you i was hungry.

Wondering: what i should do with the half rotten raspberries the girls picked yesterday.

Loving: my three yr olds mop of curls.

Hoping: that i rains. don't ask me why.

Marvelling: at the mess on my kitchen floor...didn't it just get mopped yesterday?

Needing: to switch the laundry, again.

Smelling: nothing...thankfully.

Wearing: my favorite camo pants..YAY! they fit again.

Following: a trail of cracker crumbs.

Noticing: that its lunch time.

Knowing: that i have to get up and find something to feed the monkeys

Thinking: about running away..ok, maybe not...or maybe just till after lunch.
