It Was a Day Of Much Celebrating!

Yeah, Okay I know. Tax season is officially OVER but I had to throw this picture in to say YIPEE!! I'm done with taxes for yet another year and there are no extensions filed, which means no taxes to do a bit later:) Can life really get much better than this? Tuesday was a great day as I mailed and E-filed the final returns and then went to lunch with a friend in celebration. (I'll find any reason to eat food you know). But while I was gone to eat, this was delivered to my house:



Actually, the only thing the delivery had in common with the above ad was that it was a mattress. It is a queen size mattress and a new one. I will make my own urine and slobber stains & smells alright? OK, that was gross and untrue. I will refrain from either. . if possible.

I have not had a new mattress for sooooooooooo long that I didn't realize they were supposed to be this soft, sturdy and comfortable and without the indent of my body in it. (and boy is my indent BIG:) My husband Bob (I told him that was his new internet name)and I are used to a king bed and mattress, so this queen thing is going to take some adjustment. I am a light sleeper and don't like ANY noise nor do I want anyone touching me, breathing on me or looking at me funny at any point. Yeah, now you are laughing that I downsized! Well, we had our first "new bed" night last night and I actually can say with a grin . . . . . I slept really bad and so did Bob. Don't ask me why I'm grinning. It is probably that I am delirious from lack of sleep! It's going to take a while to adjust to this all but I'm hopeful. Who needs sleep right? I figure, as long as I am comfy while I lay there awake I'm good! *sigh!*


In other good news, my Ty-Ty was in the bathroom brushing his teeth and proudly & loudly announced this to me. "Mom, the dog is potty trained!" In my head I start visualizing Ty holding the dog over the toilet as he went, so I responded "Oh he is? How is that?"
Ty yelled back "Well he came into the bathroom with me and lifted his leg right at the toilet and peed all over it! That makes him potty trained! He's a good dog huh mom! Should I go get him a treat?" All that I could say was "Sure thing honey". Sometimes it's just easier not to argue when you are dealing with a young child! Hope your day is filled with good news too!!

Isn't life great? No more taxes, new bed, and the pee is near the potty. What more could you ask? MUM

Yay for no more taxes. Sorry about the no sleep. Just get yourself some of that stuff that starts with a M. I forgot the name ( i want to say melanoma) but that is surely not right. Hope you are getting excited for your Big Day!!!! Turning 29?

Hooray for tax season being over! Yippee for getting a nice new mattress! :)

Boo for dog pee all over the bathroom! Ewww...EWWW! :0

PJ said...

Ha! Love that ad...ewwww!

Good luck adjusting to that new mattress. In a week you'll be sleeping like a baby...babies never sleep through the night you know.

Uh, the dog...well, have fun with that. Cute, funny, and a little stinky.

Good luck with your doggie. Congrats on the taxes and the new bed. You know how jealous we are that you got a new matress?! WEll just imagine our faces totally green. haha

You didn't get a sleep number bed?
:sob:

Jill said...

Hey, my boys are potty trained, and they pee on the floor by the toilet also!
(anyone heard of AIMING?)

Jean Knee said...

I will gladly add an authentic urine smell to your mattress for only $4.95

Jen said...

I am so glad taxes are done. We spent forever on turbotax and finally decided to have an accountant do it. Our return was better, so he paid for himself. I was glad.

Potty trained dog? Ha ha!

I found it!

THIS cracked me up this morning.

My mattress is soooooo old that it has sinkholes in it. My butt gets sucked in and pinched by the springs on a nightly basis. :( I went to go flip the mattress over but the other side has holes in it, too!

I birthed my 6 year old son on that bed! We can't get rid of it. It's a family heirloom.

Hey It's Di said...

Jean Knee- I would love the added urine service you are offering:)

Elastic- That cartoon CRACKED ME UP! I need something with a memory but not sure I want it to be the mattress:0 And NO don't get rid of the heirloom! You MUST always have it beneath you:)

Ninja Scott- No, we are losers & so there will be no sleep numbers here:(
