Us Against Them

I don't know what it's like at your household but here it's us against them, man against beast, survival of the get the drift. As previously mentioned, the cat and dog got so bad about getting in the cabinets, including the upper cabinets, we had to have someone come in and magnetize the doors.
The rebellion quelled....Until....
They turned to the pantry. But since we, of course, are smarter than mere animals--cough,cough, hack, hack,choke, choke--we started propping a heavy chair in front of the door.
Problem solved.
Unfortunately, the instigator A.K.A. Monster Kitty convinced the dog to move the chair for him so he could make a foray into the forbidden area where the food--human and animal--is stored.  Since the dog is a bit of a schmuck she fell in with the plan.  This happened several times, till we finally came to the realization there would have to be another outlay of cash to solve the problem. 
We had a dead bolt installed. Done and done. Until......
He turned his attention to my couch.
It's war.
You can see how much being in the Penalty Box bothers Monster Kitty.  He occasionally goes in it voluntarily to take a nap and it's where I frequently find  his ill gotten gains, er, treasurers.

What about your house? Are you dealing with uprisings in your household?


And totally off topic, I'm at Free Kindle Books and Tips Today.  If you do popover would you give the post a Facebook like on the blog's website?  It helps get the word out.

Yes, It's Monday

Did all the moms out there have a great Mother's Day? 
It was a good one here.  I got to see the Grands Saturday and then the HH and I went to a winery for Lunner (Lunch/Dinner) Sunday. They had a special buffet that was amazing. There were four serving tables set up in two rooms: breakfast, appetizers, dinner and dessert. 
The HH got the bill and his eyes crossed, though there were a couple of bottle of wines we purchased to take home on it. We topped off the afternoon with a trip to Lowes and the purchase of a sunflower plant. Then back to the world of everyday and laundry.
How did you celebrate your day?
