Life in the Fish Bowl


Haiku Friday

Haiku Friday
58 degrees.
I'm all about cold weather,
But not in my house.

If I was so smart
I'd have turned the heater on.
Just call me dumb ass.

The heat is pumping,
This blanket is snugly warm
Punkin still snoozes.

Fa la la la la
The Christmas season is here
I love, love, love it!

A week clean and dry!
Yes! After all of this time
Punkin gets his tracks.

Potty training bribe
Sitting in my living room
Since August. Unused.

Now no poop, no pee
Except in the proper place
For seven whole days!

He gets his new tracks
I can decorate the tree
They'll keep him busy!

Oh, Thomas! You rock!
Henry, Edward, James, Murdoch,
He loves you all so!

Bribery and's the only way.

It is 22 degrees here in northwest Indiana, but the sun is shining.

To encourage potty-training for my granddaughter, my daughter-in-law used a video (or maybe it was a book or both) of a Canadian character called Calliou.

Yay for the 7 days of proper waste deposits! My dad did what you did. AC was on. It was 41 here. HELLO!! Freaking freezing my piggies off! And, I ditto the Thomas sentiment.

It's cold as hell here today and yesterday it was 70. The world is ending, I really believe it.

It was cold in here, this morning, too, but not 58 degrees cold. BRRRRRRR..

Love your 'kus!! ;)

Yay for finding the perfect bribe! We're using chocolate on Emma and it's starting to work - whoohoo!

Bren said...

Great haiku!

We got the freezing cold too! I love some good snuggling weather.

Hurray for Punkin!

Hooray for the kid! Hooray for bribery, which has its place in my world, to be sure.

Toni said...

Congrats on potty training success! It is colder here too. Was 62 degrees in my son's room at 2am this morning! Yikes: time to raise the thermostat here!

Steph said...

Woohoo for successful potty training and for new tracks! Enjoy decorating your tree.

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

That's great! You've got some serious Haiku skillz!

Jaysus. I will readily admit that I am insanely jealous of your POTTY-TRAINED KID. Who cares that you used bribery?

My kid won't go near a potty...even though he fucked with my head early on by peeing a few times without being prompted.

Like you, I've got the damn Christmas bug! I shopped like a maniac yesterday. I'd NEVER done Black Friday before yesterday!
