All Creatures Great and Small, All Things Tar-jhay and Tentacly

It's been a while since we made it to the fabulous red and white aisles of Target, so we've been running low on many household items. I've been redistributing Kleenex from the fuller boxes to the empty ones for so long that there were about four tissues left in each box. (We don't actually use Kleenex though. The favored brand is Puffs, with a special container of Puffs Plus With Lotion set aside for illnesses. They're sort of slimy for regular use, but God's gift to noses when you're sick.)

I'd also been pouring liquid hand soap from container to container in an effort to keep all sinks afloat, so I dropped by the soap section to pick up lovely, lovely refillable Method soft soaps. And what do I see? The much longed-for, blogged-about SQUID SOAP!

I now have my very own Squid Soap. I mean, Q has his very own Squid Soap, um, just as soon as I'm finished pulling the stretchy tentacles.

After two and a half months of being basically useless for errands, I had 45 minutes of bliss strolling Target. Better than therapy, I tell ya.

In other sealife news, Lady O was kind enough to send me a link on crib bedding that she thought I really needed to see. Is this perfect or what?

Swimmy and I must have this rug. And these pillows. And blanket.

Speaking of Lady O, please send condolences her way, as pet Oreo has gone to ratty heaven.

I covet the Squid soap. But I think you've just sent Jenny screaming from the blogosphere. Plus, she may never set foot in Target again.

That bedding is fabulous! You, uh I mean Swimmy, deserve nothing less!

My kids LOVE the squid soap. Who knew a red dot would make it so much fun to wash up??

I almost bought the Squid Soap. I'll have to reconsider!

Love the bedding!! Very cute and appropriate.

Glad to hear your feeling better. Gotta love that honeymoon pregnancy phase.

Oops. Make that YOU'RE. D'oh.
