in the kitchen.
As you know we’ve had some pretty interesting experiences since my husband TJ had foot surgery. Well things have not changed. Last week after returning from another one of TJ’s doctor appointments I was
trying to get our dog Charlie tied out so he wouldn’t trip TJ but instead
Charlie close-lined me and this time I was left writhing in pain on the concrete floor of the porch.
TJ wheeled himself over to me on his knee-scooter and offered a hand to try to help me up. The neighbors must think we’re a bunch of nut jobs over here! Thankfully only my pride was hurt (and my ass too) but I’ll
be fine. People are now rallying for my husband to start blogging but that just isn’t going to happen. There isn’t enough room in this house for two bloggers!
Rice is Nice
I’ve had a cell phone for over ten years and have never damaged or lost a phone. And to add to my unique record I always carry my phone in my back pocket which is just asking for trouble. The odds were in my favor to break that record.
On the same day I fell down, I dropped my cell phone in the toilet. It was one of ‘those days’. After cleaning it off I immediately put it in a bag of rice because I have seen sooooo many FB posts saying that’s the best thing to do. It worked! After a couple hours my phone was back in
working order. Rice is nice!
Going to Bed Hungry
The other night Will passed on supper, said he just wasn’t hungry. I asked him several times and gave him plenty of opportunities to change his mind but he still claimed he wasn’t hungry. He went to bed around 8pm and at 9pm he yelled for me as I was walking down the hall.
“Mom I’m really hungry.”
“You decided you didn’t want supper and its way past your bedtime. Go to sleep, you can have a big breakfast in the morning.”
“Fine but there’s something you should know. My Grandma Wagner says that no kid should ever go to bed hungry….. AND she’s your
I hate it when my kids use my mother to try to guilt me!
Yesterday I received two emails from the school in Iowa our kids attended last year. The emails stated there wasn’t any money
left in their lunch accounts and that once the amount was under the minimum of $3.00, which was set by the school district, I was required to put more money into the accounts immediately.
Why has it taken them so long to notice the lack of funds in the account? Why haven’t they noticed my kids are not at school?
Things that make you go hmmmmmm.
