I Love Tape

How many rolls of tape does it take to make a paper gun and a pair of paper binoculars with a scope?

Apparently three.

Yes, that's three.  That means that the amount of creativity that exists in our house equals about a gazillion rolls of tape per week.  I kid you not.

When he was done he started me a new shopping list.
He included a picture just in case I needed a little help.

Cat Lady

The Mister asked me about ten times if I wanted to go with him to pick up his dry cleaning today.  I finally agreed and as we were pulling up he says, "This is why I wanted you to come with."  He points to these signs hanging in the bushes outside the store.

He went in and got his shirts and I snuck out of the car to snap a few pictures.  Just as I'm shutting the car door he comes out.  He looks at me with knowing eyes.  I look of guilty, I'm sure.  He says, "YOU DID NOT!"  I say, "I sure did!  You can't make this stuff up!"

Our questions are,

Who is the cat lady and does she know that they call her the cat lady?

Is she slitting open big bags of kitty chow for all the neighborhood cats at the local dry cleaners?

Why the dry cleaners?

Talk amongst yourselves....

This morning I'm getting the kids dressed for school and Breckyn claims that her pants don't fit.  They fit yesterday but today they are too tight.

How does that work exactly?

I checked, and she was right.... what the?

Kids literally grow over night apparently.

In the boy department we have other issues.  They put on a pair of jeans and it has holes in the right knee.  I make them take off the jeans and to put on ones without holes.  Only to find another pair with a hole in the right knee.  We dig deeper to reveal several more pairs of pants with holes in the right knees and finally come upon one without a hole.  (...and why not the left knee?)

So, do I repair the holes and make it work? 

Do I pretend that it's cool to have holes in your right knee only? 

Do I go out and buy another pair? 

The odds are if I go and buy a new pair next week they will be in a bigger size.  Indecision has plagued me and so my boys are wearing holy jeans for yet another day.

Insanity I tell you, pure insanity.

Confessions of a Nutter


I have always wanted to shave my head.

Too weird?

Well, fine. 

But if you think about it, how cool would it be to just shower and go?  You wouldn't have to worry about conditioner because no one could tell if it was shiny and smooth.  No extra time in the bathroom with curling irons, products and blow driers.  You could wear a hat any time and never have the feared "hat hair."  People would notice your face a lot more because they have nothing else to stare at.

The way I look at it, it would be the key to a hassle free world.

But then again, I'm a little nutty.

What's your secret wish?

Snow Days

We got snow-- lots of it.

The kids woke up to school canceled and snow drifts half way up the door.  It was kid heaven.  We busted out the hot cocoa and cinnamon rolls to celebrate the perfect day.

So today I'm playing cruise director in my own home.

Do you need an activity?

How about a snack?

I'm your sucker!
