<p>Marla’s pregnancy (and subsequent maternity leave) coincided nicely with her work schedule, so she ended up with about seven days off. Once the baby was born, I pushed her to run on her treadmill as much as possible to bring up her Athletic skill.<div align=”center”><img src=”/images/2009/11/1102-01.jpg”></div>
<p>”It’s dark and empty in here! I don’t like it!”
<p>”Then run faster so you can get a raise so you can afford carpeting and paint and torchiere lamps.”
<p>Speaking of home decor, I’m a lot happier with the second draft of Marla’s Venture Brothers bathroom:<div align=”center”><img src=”/images/2009/11/1103-01.jpg”></div>
<p>I also had her boost her work performance by inviting her boss over for some chit-chat. When Marla gave her boss an “Amusing Greeting,” this is what that translates as.<div align=”center”><img src=”/images/2009/11/1102-02.jpg”></div>
<p>I have no idea what’s going on here. “Amusing Greeting” seems to be making fun of Paris Hilton? Well okay I can get on board with that, I guess.
<p>While I kept slaving away over their Venture Brothers bathroom decor, Kay and Marla continue day-to-day life in their little FEMA trailer. <div align=”center”><img src=”/images/2009/11/1102-06.jpg”></div>
<p>Eurgh, that oven makes me queasy to look at.
