it has been quite a week, hasn't it? lots of big news on the sandy front today (power back on! marathon canceled! benefit concert!), but instead i thought i'd share the news in the holbrook house... you know, clearly unimportant news in the grand scheme of things but what does this look like to you, cnn or something?
here first, are some of buster's favorite shots from the week:
soooo.. today i bought stroller hand muffs. stroller hand muffs i said, isn't that genius!? tubes of fluffy things for your stroller handles so you don't get stroller hands. you know stroller hands? stroller hands are the worst. when they get all chappy from the wind? i swear, it's the most excitement ever. (i also bought a cup holder for the stroller today. it's suddenly really swanky to be my stroller.) (i'm being lighthearted here, but shoot, this does excite me.)
and here's something else exciting! brandon told me last night that he plans on letting his beard grow while he's out of town on his training assignment, and oh hallelujah! orange beards for me! i've missed that orange beard pret-ty badly since brandon graduated and got all 'employed' and 'respectable' on me.
last bit of news for the day: thanks to huck and his exposure therapy methods i can now sit through an entire showing of dumbo without crying. (twice a day, this child!) (too much duh-doh!) just now i started to ask huck if he wanted a snack, but he interrupted me and said, "duh-doh? ohh-tayyyyyy." so. gosh dang it duh-doh! (i am drawing the line at the fox and the hound, though. NEVER AGAIN, FOX AND THE HOUND.)
and for random non-news, i was thinking about the canceled marathon and the way the park usually smells like stale post-marathon vomit in november, and then i remembered this post from last year at this time.
also i realized today that it's been a million years since i shared any babble links, and so even though it feels a little wrong this week to talk about silly things like high fashion baseball caps? here they are anyway?
would you wear: high fashion baseball caps?
and on the great beauty experiment:
sally hansen stick on nail polish strips (are raaaaad)
lastly and most importantly,
there's still a lot of recovery work to be done here in nyc
and a lot of people (and their pets) are without basic necessities.
you've all seen info on how to donate to the american red cross by now i'm sure,
but if you'd like to, please also consider donating to the humane society of the united states.
we can't forget the furbabies!
(and if you're in town and would like to donate time to the park clean up efforts, you can go here.)
