Just some more stuff

I've been having these big ol pangs of guilt for most of the afternoon cause Jethro went all floatey and joined that big aquarium in the sky. It wouldn't be bothering me so much except that I've been slightly ungracious about having to clean his nasty little home a few times already, even after saying to the other humans in this house, that Jethros were NOT my responsibility.

I wonder if I put too much of that water purifier in there the last time I cleaned that thing?


Didn't the month of October pass in a flash? Just when I get the hang of writing the 10th month on everything, it's another month and I have to start all over again!


The other day while sitting in that doctor's office waiting, the girls and Zach were being almost angelic by sitting quietly while watching The Grinch That Stole Christmas movie. Then Krysten turned her little head and looked at her mom and I and said, "I want to be a serial killer when I grow up."

I gotta tell you, for the first time in my life, I was totally speechless! 6 of the kiddy crew will be in my care tomorrow because school's out and the parents have doctor's appointments, so I'm going to try to get Krysten alone so I can ask her if she knows what a serial killer is. I think they've been watching too many of those scarey movies!

Awww poor Jethro...don't feel guilty, though, fish die so easily, no matter how much you take care of them. Oh dear, that was a strange thing for Krysten to say out of the blue...I'm anxious to hear what she thinks a serial killer is!

How old is she? It's probably nothing but it is a bizarre thing to hear. Hopefully you get to talk with her. :)

Wow, that was wierd. She probably has been watching too much TV.

Like the new look!! Snazzy.

I'm glad you're going to talk to Krysten. Sometimes those kind of comments are just to see what reaction they get, but it never hurts to sit down and talk. Good luck!

In case of future goldfish -

Goldfish require very little. A simple bowl filled with spring water and a little fish food every day is plenty. They don't need fancy tanks and air pumps and such. Just clean the bowl every week or so and change the water.

I have a goldfish who has lived happily with this arrangement for five years (his tankmate survived for four).

Maybe she meant cereal killer?

I'm with Summer. I know I could knock off a few bowls of Honey 'n' Nut Cheerios without guilt.
