Home Alone

Mrs. Shife and the kids have left me.
But they are coming back.
We had new hardwood floor installed in our dining room, and then the rest of hardwood re-finished so it looks fancy like the newly installed hardwood. Unfortunately that process involves relocating a whole bunch of furniture, stinky chemicals, lots of noise, and basically a home environment that would leave Mrs. Shife, Kyle Bunga, and Hayden Belle not too happy. So they went on an airplane ride to visit Grandma and Grandpa, and Tank and I were left behind to take of things at the house. Since the process involves stinky chemicals Tank and I had to sleep outside in our backyard because I didn't think it was a good idea to inhale more chemicals to further deplete my thinning brain cells. And huffing some hallucinogenic chemicals can only lead to questionable and regrettable decision making.
So I pitched a tent.
I will let that sink in for a minute to see where your mind goes.
If you literally thought I pitched a tent then good for you because that is what I exactly did so Tank and I could breath some fresh air, enjoy the star gazing, and peeing on trees. Note to self: Turn off sprinklers next time so you don't get an early morning shower at 4 in the morning.
Now if you figuratively thought I pitched a tent then ... What the hell? How dare you think I would talk about boners on my blog. For the love of bassets, you know I like to keep things clean around here and never talk about inappropriate stuff. Yeah I had to chuckle a little bit at that last sentence too.
Anyway enough of my shenanigans. Maybe I did inhale a little bit too much of those chemicals.
The family is back tomorrow so I have to pick up the house.
Hope your week has been a good one, and you have a great weekend.

P.S. And here is a video promoting a new show on TLC, http://youtu.be/njtjKYgS49s. This really gives me hope for the future of America, and yes this sentence was sponsored by sarcasm. Oh and the video is safe just scary because of what they are putting on TV these days.

I even miss his pouty face. 

I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.


  1. What??? No pictures of the floor? Well thankfully you didn't put a picture up of your tent raising.

    I don't know how I knew what that show was going to be, but I knew it. I've seen the commercials and there is no way in Hell I would waste my time on it, even if I was still passed out on that bathroom floor and that was the only thing that could save me.

  2. I've never seen Kyle pout before. He does it well, don't you think? Do we get to see pics of the floor?

    Thanks for your recent comment.... er ... I have removed the gap between the two words ... maybe that will make a difference....whaaaaaaaa

  3. You said "pitch a tent" and my mind went straight into the gutter. Sorry bout that.

  4. Okay! I'll be moving to another country now! Thanks for that video clip. Yep. You've helped me make up my mind.

  5. I'm too old to pitch a tent these days, although I still give it a try occasionally. :-)

  6. sounds like an excellent adventure that will give you and tank the opportunity to forge a bond that will never be broken.

    i'm thinking of suing shameless for copying our family and not paying me a royalty.

  7. I had no thought in my mind of a boner when you said you pitched a tent (I thought you meant you just threw it) so, you know, thanks for that lovely image. :)

  8. I was watching Honey Boo Boo today. That looks unwatchable.

    I would much rather have a camp out in my back yard with a basset hound slobbering all over me than watch that crappola.

    Hope you and Tank enjoy your QT!

  9. PS: How much did they pay that guy to appear on a show where he admits to sleeping with that woman?

  10. I'd be for putting Honey Boo Boo and Snooki in a Metal Cage Death Match. I'd watch that.

    Or maybe make them clean out a house featured on Hoarders.

  11. Honey Boo Boo was reminding me of something, oh yeah, any trailer park in the USA.

  12. HAHAHA I knew that was going to be honey boo boo child even before I clicked on it, they show her on the Soup all the time with her go go juice.

    Sleeping outside so outdoorsy I am a priss I would have gotten a hotel room.

  13. "Honey Boo Boo?" What. The. Four-wheeler. I swear this stuff just finds you Shife. Goofball.
