Lookout! It's catching!

Matthew's sick. Great. I infected him with the NYC winter sickness of 2008. He says at least we're getting it out of the way before the wedding. He's a trooper.

We managed to go to IKEA today before he really started feeling sick. Got some household stuff.



Most important - a holder for Duke's poop bags to keep by the front door. This is what life is all about, folks. Accessibility to poop bags. Lovely.



Second most important - cappuccino cups so we can have proper coffees made from our new espresso machine. Heaven. Little cups and little saucers. Too cool.


Third most important - cool new wine rack. Will be hung on a wall of our choosing in the kitchen. Trying to figure out how/where we can work out a bar situation. We entertain a lot (every time I say we "entertain" it makes me feel like a home ec textbook from the '50s) and a bar is an essential feature. We set one up on a table in the living room now, but ideally we'd love to have something a little more permanent in the kitchen.

poop bags, cups & saucers and a winerack. All sound equally essential to me!
Get well soon Matthew!

oh man, I need to get that poop bag holder. Have you ever ran out of poop bags? Not a good scene.

Patti - Yeah, pretty essential items in our household, for sure!

Survivingmyself - Totally! Running out is the worst. Worse still - putting one in your pocket, going out for a walk, reaching in to get the bag when said "business" is ready to be picked up only to find that the bag had fallen out along the way. Then it's a mad scramble to find a suitable piece of random trash to to the scoop. Eww!

HA! What's even worse... when you go to bag the poo and you only realize there's a hole in the bag when you feel it. *shudder*

Hope you get well soon! Everyone around here is sick too...with the stomach virus, colds, flu etc. Yechh!

We have that same bag-holder from Ikea lol...we put plastic grocery bags in it, and use them to empty cat litter....So I guess it's a poop bag holder for us too! heheheh. Sheesh.
