ANOTHER FUNERAL... and Fat Mayo!

There was an untimely death in the family.  Actually the deceased was a fish, and to hear Becca tell it... it was a murder!  Her male guppy was found floating in the tank after school will all of its fins and tail completely nibbled off.  The interrogation continues even as I type this.  The guppy has been replaced with another fan-tailed male, but he and his new bride have a home of their own, Becca set the small tank up to risk any future canabalism.  For the new guppy's sake I hope the female isn't a 'black widow'.

While at the store to finalize the adoption of the newest addition to our little aqua-community we also bought sandwich fixings.  (Becca was not amused when she inquired what was for dinner and Art replied 'fish' with a wicked grin).  We were already at the register when I realized that I had forgotten to pick up some mayo, so I sent Becca to grab a jar.  'MAYO! Not that Miracle Sh*t...' I specified.  When she returned with the mayo, I immediately noticed that it was Fat Free.  'What are you trying to say?' I asked suspiciously.  I grudgingly paid for the fat-free mayo to save time, but you can bet when I got home I scrounged around like an addict until I found some 'fat' mayo, and scrapped the sides of the jar for my fix!

Day 1 of my 3-day use or lose vacation is almost over.  I slept all morning, and played all afternoon.  Tomorrow I suppose I should try to do some housework... I wonder if there is a Dummy's Guide To Housework that I can download.  I think that will be my first plan of action for the morning... go online and research the art of 'housework'.  Yeah, thats definitely a plan worth having!

Poor fish.  Poor Becca. Hey, have you tried the Flylady's website for housework?  http://www.flylady.com/  My daughter swears by it.  I read the entire site, and my house still isn't clean.  But at least she has a sense of humor.  Kay

Lol...maybe you should just get a turtle or something! We have this giant goldfish and an obese dwarf frog who share a tank and everytime we bring home a new "friend", they end up murdering the poor thing. Good luck with yours, I hope there aren't anymore casualties!
