Sorry I’ve been so absent lately. But we got both a Wii and a puppy this week. Not to mention that I still have the rest of the family and am working 6 days a week now. So…while there’s an awful lot to write about, there’s very little time.
Let’s see. Our puppy’s a twelve week old black lab who’s absolutely full of energy and poop. I mean really super full of both. I sure am glad that Kajsa’s potty trained these days. Otherwise, I’d never stop gagging.
Speaking of otherwise (were we?). Kajsa used the word in a sentence yesterday. I was so proud. She just pops up with new vocabulary all the time.
Anyway, we spent all night trying to figure out what in the world we were going to name this little fella. We tried Odin, but Chris didn’t like that since the mythology has Odin siring Thor. And since Thor is our old dog, he thought that would be inaccurate.
My response ? “Chris, not only are they dog’s, but everyone knows that reincarnation always mixes the relationships up a little.” I mean Jeez. How could he make such a silly blunder, anyway? Still, it was a no go. Much to Maya’s chagrin, as that was her #1 pick.
So hours and hours later we arrived at his name. By that time Maya had gone off to bed, but the rest of us were up. I believe the last thing I heard before drifting off was:
So Rufus it is.
Maya was a little concerned this morning because Rufus is the name of Kimpossible’s naked mole rat. And if you know what that means, then you’re one step ahead of me. What we really took the name from is Dogma. If you’ve seen that movie say, 834 times like we have, you’ll easily get the connection.
As for the Wii; what can I say, I totally rock at fake 9 ball. Kajsa’s a champ at fishing. Maya excels at bowling and baseball. And Chris, big surprise, loves shooting things. So everyone’s happy around here. Which is better than I can say for these people.
I hope all is going well for you, too.
