When a Problem Comes Along, You Must Whip It

Don't fret, dear friends, there really isn't a problem here. I just wanted to get your attention. I think Steenky Bee may undergo a new fall lineup. I just wanted to let the tens of you know so you're not confused when you stop by.

A few times a week I shall post pictures and stories of Henry and Reese. Our children, especially Henry, have seen their pictures on Steenky Bee and they really like it. Henry thinks he's a pretty big deal. He's charging us royalties on the use of his likeness. Reese is starting diva behavior as well. She'll only take her pink bottle now. Celebrities.

Jeremy's antics seem to get warm responses from friends of The Bee. I shall try to work his words of wisdom and hairbrained schemes into at least one post a week. I would be remiss if I didn't point out that Jeremy is also exhibiting diva-like tendencies. He fights Reese for the pink bottle.

The Friday Five will be undergoing a little bit of an overhaul. From hence forth it shall be known simply as The Five Spot and it won't be posted on Friday anymore. It will appear either Saturday or Sunday. I'm going to keep you guessing, that's my strategy. Well, it's not so much a strategy as it is the fact that I don't know what we'll be doing during the weekends. It's not always dinner and dancing over here. Sometimes it's disinfectant and diarrhea.

(Have you all noticed the "hence" and "shalls" in this post? This is not part of the new fall lineup, I'm just feeling fancy today. But then I just wrote the word "diarrhea" didn't I? That sucked all the highbrow out of this place.)

On Fridays I will be trying my hand at participating in The Spin Cycle over at Sprite's Keeper's place. Basically, Sprite's Keeper throws a topic out there and the participants write a post putting their own spin on it. Sprite's Keeper posts all the links on her page for everyone to see. For more details go here.

Well, that's it. There's nothing more to see here. I don't really know how to gracefully end this post. It's kind of like it's the end of a long phone conversation and I don't really know how to get off the line. So, I guess I'll see you around. I'll call you tomorrow. Bye!

Lately, it's been a lot of diarrhea over here, too, with our pancreatic dog and i'm so glad you spelled it twice because i didn't know how to spell it so i copy and pasted it here, well actually back there because i'm already here. follow me? my grandma keeps my ear on long long phone calls and she never thinks how she's going to end, she just hangs up. i love spontanaeity.

I look forward to the antics and the shenanigans. I'm not sure "shenanigans" really falls in line well with "hence" and "shall", but, like your blog, I think it's fun to mix things up. Interestingly, diarrhea is never a bad place to start, which I know seems odd, but sometimes that is blogging gold!

It's like the networks announcing their fall line-ups! I'm so excited I think I peed a little. Dammit! If you're changing things then I need to change things. That means I have to think and I hate that.

Bee said...

Ha ha! I have a thing I do sometimes when the mood strikes called F*ck off Fridays on a Saturday because I can never predict you is going to piss me off on Friday. ;o)

We'll stay tuned!

sherendipity said...

There must be something in the air, I was thinking of mixing things up a little too. Then again, I haven't blogged much at all lately, so mixing it up translates into "actually making an effort". Blech.
Anyway, change is good stuff. can't wait to see what you come up with.

Sprite's Keeper said...

Wow, I love how you announce your changes! Most bloggers just change it and wait for the feedback to raise them up or stone them down. Rock On, Jen!

DeeMarie said...

Can't wait to see all your fun changes!! Definitely keep posting pics of the kids!!

Tuesday Girl said...

I love a new fall lineup. I will appreciate it as much as my new TV shows

Mama Dawg said...

I love change. Not that you need it, but I love change.

No matter what, I'll keep reading. And commenting. And fighting over stalkers rights over The Captain with you.

I'd worry about the diva tendencies when they start demanding orchids and bubbly in their bedrooms.

HeatherPride said...

Steenk it up, sister! You shall always be wonderful in my book!

(did you see how fancy I got there?)

Kat said...

I love changes. Bring it on!

gingela5 said...

The new line up sounds great! Granted I haven't really read your blog for too long so I probably won't notice the difference! Hope that didn't hurt your self esteem! hehe

Rhea said...

Interesting new line up! Love this post, funny.

Stephanie said...

So, I have an award for you on my blog, because well, you rock. And now everyone knows it. So stop by and pick it up!

blissfullycaffeinated said...

You are so very fancy. Never forget that.

Also? I love that you plan stuff out and have a schedule and everything. That's awesome and so professional.

I envy the Steenk. Oh yes, I do.

beth said...

I'm sure you're going to "whip it good!" Okay, so corny, but I just felt the need to say that the minute I read your title.

Heinous said...

Wow, until the word 'diarrhea' came out, this was the highbrowest blog I've read all day. I too am looking forward to the changes although the old stuff did not suck one bit.

The only thing that does suck is that Devo is in my head now.

I'm thinking since we couldn't interrupt you that it was more like a long voice mail message and you were trying to figure out how to end it. You are much better at leaving voice mail messages than I am. Mine would have been full of Uhhhhh and Ummmmmmm and So yeah's.

Maggie, Dammit said...

I like yer fancy talk. ;)

Jenni said...

And, thanks for stoping by! I love your blog - you are totally going into my reader :)

Jenni said...

Okay, it seems my first comment vanished, so here goes again.

This post is hilarious! My husband announced his truth bomb shortly after we got married/egnaged (I can't remember which.) He said, quite dramatically, "I have somthing to tell you." DUN DUN DUNNNNN! "I hate whole wheat pasta and brown rice and I'm never eating them again."

Because, whole wheat pasta and brown rice are DEAL BREAKERS, right? It was too funny.

Also, I have a long silver hair (I call them granny hairs) on the inner side of my right elbow.
