New Series Starts Tomorrow. And a Musk Ox.

On Thursday I wrote a post for Mama Kat's workshop and from that tiny poem came a hundred thousand requests for more of the history behind the history of la casa de dweej.  And that makes me nervous.

Part of me thinks there are a lot of good stories in there.  The other part of me knows that everyone has a story and I'm willing to bet mine isn't quite as scandalous or crazy or moving as you're imagining it to be.  And I don't want this to turn into a Me Dumping My Schtuff on You All the Time blog.  Gotta keep my eye on the moderation clock, ya know?

So I've come up with a compromise which should make everyone happy- those of you who are clamoring for more of the Schtuff Dumping and those of you who are just here for cute pictures of my kids and the over-use of the word 'turd'.  Every Wednesday, starting tomorrow, I'll post a new installment of the history behind the history.  That way those of you who want it can line up real early like in the morning to get your fix and those of you who roll your eyes at that kind of thing can just skip over this here blog and save yourself a few minutes of meandering down memory lane.



And in conclusion (remember that's how really good writers end things?), here is a little gem from our (free) Saturday excursion to the Kingman Museum in Battle Creek.
I'm sorry...still a bit confused.  So you WANT me to pet the musk ox?

  1. 1. confession - every time you have an announcement i think you're going to tell us you're pregnant again :)
    2. yay! i for one want more history because, even though i've know you since high school, i don't know anything about you before then!

  2. yea! I can't wait for more Schtuff Dumping!
    Please tell me you did pet the musk ox. He looks so friendly, how could you NOT?

  3. @Jules- if I ever announce another pregnancy, I'll makd sure I do NOT use the word announcement ;)

    @JD- Glad you're jumpin' on the Schtuff Dumpin' train!

  4. I was thinking the same, or that you are moving b/c dh got the job he could not resist. You made my heart beat a little faster there for a second.

  5. Love to hear more when you're ready... about the Musk Ox, that is. ;-)


    Dump away, lady!

  6. For the record, I knew exactly what you were going to say when I read this title. Because I've been secretly hoping for you to reveal more details of what I suspect was an interesting childhood.

    And I always get what I want.

    Now I'm going to go want to win the lottery. And have the 4 year old realize that "kaykaykaypee" is not, in fact, a recognized letter in the English alphabet.

  7. What a great series! I am really going to be looking forward to that. And the sign doesn't say "Please don't ride the Musk Ox" so hop on! lol

  8. I am so ready for all dumping of schtuff.

    I wake up around 3 am every day (don't ask) so please post your schtuff in a Patty-timely fashion so that I can run for the coffeemaker and then run back to my office and get my fill of Dweej-dumping.


  9. We like you sooo much, your schtufff is our schtuff! Well sort of!

  10. Wow that was a very interesting poem and very well written! Also, I'm pretty sure they DO want you to pet the musk ox!

    For Love of Cupcakes

  11. Dump away Dweej!!! Looking forward to it, I just know it'd be interesting and I'll love it.

  12. So, did Paul touch the Musk Ox anyway?

  13. Paul? I'm pretty sure he's not the male we need to be worried about around here!

  14. 1. I don't mind the schtuff.
    2. I'm looking forward to La Historia de Dwija
    3. I like the Musk Ox (my daughter saw real Musk Oxen in Fairbanks a few years ago - have you ever seen Qiviut, the beautiful wool made from Musk Ox fur?)
