I remembered to write stuff down this month!! WOOO HOOO!!! ;)

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Joshua – Boboton should be the name of a planet.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Colin has a new found love of Babybel Cheese. He also likes using the net on his head. He looks like a lunch lady!

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

We have gone through about 5 electric can openers in the past couple of years. Instead of buying yet another one I got a manual can opener instead. I left it out and asked Deanna to open some cans for me. Hee hee hee hee!! It took her FOREVER to figure out how it works!

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Deanna and I were watching TV.

Me – That was D-U-M-B.

Deanna – What? I don’t get it.

Me – You know… Dumb, D-U-M-B.

Deanna – Oh! I thought it was a new acronym and I just didn’t know it yet!

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Evil Hank Jr

 

THIS was something The Hubby picked up at a used book store. SIGH… For the full story check out my Use Your Words post.

Believe me, THAT’S a story you don’t want to miss! ;)

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Butterflies

 

We’ve been studying butterflies this month and having a lot of fun (for more on the butterflies click HERE ).

When they finished making their chrysalides , their butts were hanging out. Completely freaked Colin out.

Colin – EWWW!! They lost their butts!! Their BUTTS!!!!!!!

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

I over hear a conversation between Joshua and Deanna. I think I should be worried.

Deanna – Who would you put in a well?

Joshua – What????

Deanna – Y’know, like on “Silence of the Lambs”??  ‘It puts the lotion on its skin or it gets the hose again.’

Joshua – Uh, no one!!!

Deanna – There has to be SOMEONE!!

Joshua – Well, who would YOU put in a well??

Deanna – For like Niall from One Direction. For dislike, that annoying guy that says YEP on “Storage Wars”. (insert evil laugh here)

Joshua – Oh, well……. Maybe Will Smith.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Colin – Are Q and O brothers?

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

We are doing our normal, weekly shopping at Kroger. We have the normal, usual 2 buggies full.

I am trying to make the bagger understand that he doesn’t have to try to fit everything into one buggy because it’s just not going to work.

The cashier pipes up and gets him to listen. He then turns to me and says, “What is this, like a month’s worth?”

Me – Umm… No, it’s like a week’s worth…..

The look on his face was PRICELESS. It never gets old… LOL

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

We did a bunch of crafts on Monday for St. Patrick’s Day.

 

3D Shamrocks Collage

 

3 D Shamrocks – tutorial HERE

 

Leprechaun Houses Collage

 

We made leprechaun houses out of the boxes I won from Pick Your Plum.

I had to make finger paint… All of our paint brushes are missing!!!

I used 1 cup of flour and added water until I liked the consistency. Then I added a few drops of green food coloring.

 

Shamrock Collage

 

Tissue paper shamrocks.

 

 

Merrows by Cailey Pooka by Colin

 

We read Magic Tree House : Leprechauns and Irish Folklore : Research Guide

Then I asked Cailey and Colin to pick their favorite fairy and draw it.

 

St. Patrick's Day Breakfast

 

And that is what we had for breakfast! Green orange juice and green pancakes! The kids LOVED them!!!

 

There you go! The past month in our house. :D

(And Deanna never wants to get up before 9:30.)

 

Yesterday was a good day. We went shopping. Cailey and Colin needed new shoes and they both got the BRIGHTEST shoes they could find!! LOL  Cailey’s rainbow neon and Colin’s are neon orange and yellow! Completely day glow! ;)

Deanna – We need to start our own store called “Burnett Sized – When Family Size Just Isn’t Big Enough”.

**************************************************************************************************

Colin – This family is full of crazies!!!

**************************************************************************************************

Joshua – I hate Thorsdays, they are so unLoki.

*************************************************************************************************

Joshua – It’s a sad day when you type Leonardo in the search box and DiCaprio comes up before da Vinci.

******************************************************************************************************************

Never NEVER NNNNNNEEEEEVVVVEEEERRRR bring up the country of Djibouti around your kids… You will never hear the end of booty jokes.

Colin – I bet the grass in brown in Djibouti.

Joshua – I bet it stinks in Djibouti.

Deanna – Dang! I didn’t know Djibouti was so big.

And on and on and on and on……..

And let me apologize to the people of Djibouti on behalf of my heathen children.

********************************************************************************************************************

Deanna – Why does everyone think Joshua is funnier than me???

Me – You’re a different kind of funny.

Deanna – And what do you mean by that?????

phone rings

Me to The Hubby – Deanna wants to know why everyone thinks Joshua is funnier than she is.

Yes, that’s what I said.

Deanna – Wait!! Tell me he didn’t say the same thing!!! What do you mean by different?????

********************************************************************************************************************

Jacob (in his best Arhnahld impression) – Hi. I ahm Deaaanna Da Brows. Muh eyebrows will beat you into submission.

********************************************************************************************************************

Cailey thinks that cat burglars steal cats. Cailey – What if a cat burglar comes  and tries to steal Derpy???

********************************************************************************************************************

Apparently we have a clepto cat. Derpy keeps stealing things dragging them under the girls’ bed. Deanna was seriously upset to find a pair of Joshua’s underwear. Although, Derpy did leave a present of pipe cleaners and crayons in Cailey’s shoe.

********************************************************************************************************************

Cailey bumping into Deanna – Sorry, I hope I didn’t hurt your internal orgals.

(no, that isn’t supposed to be organs ;) )

*******************************************************************************************************************

Jacob just started a new job at the same place The Hubby works. He comes home and says this – I found my toe twin today. You know how I dropped that wood on my toe the other day? So did so and so. He took his shoe off and his toe looks just like mine!

*****************************************************************************************************************

Whenever that stupid Miley song comes on Cailey changes the words, like so:

I came in like a

tennis ball

soccer ball

football

It drives Deanna crazy.

******************************************************************************************************************

At the Christmas party for The Hubby’s work, the owner mentioned a special kind of Christmas bonus this year. Every employee got $50 to give to another employee. They were to go to the office and put down which person they wanted their $50 to go to.

The Hubby gets in the van and says, “I know I’m getting $50 from 3 people.” He then names them. I asked if he gave his to Jacob. “No! I didn’t even think about that!!” Good grief!!!!

******************************************************************************************************************

Deanna, Cailey and I were discussing doll clothes and what they were made of. We mention polyester and taffeta.

Jacob – I thought that was old people pudding.

Me – What?

Jacob – That taffeta word.

Me and Deanna – You mean tapioca!

*******************************************************************************************************************

Christmas Day and I am playing Battleship with Colin.

Me – I, 1

Colin – You did????

******************************************************************************************************************

Joshua – Do you know the actress So and So?

Me – No, I don’t think so.

Joshua – She was in such and such.

Me – Oh, yeah!

Joshua – She is also on the show XXXXXXXX.

The Hubby – Yeah, but she dies.

Joshua – Gee, thanks.

The Hubby – Oh, are you starting back at season 1?

Joshua – I’m not so sure now…..

*******************************************************************************************************************

Colin, with tape on his nose – Do I need Proactiv?

******************************************************************************************************************

Wheel of Fortune is on the TV with a split screen. Vanna and the letter board are on the bottom and the contestants are on the top. Colin – Are those people really big or is that lady really small?

******************************************************************************************************************

So, there you have it, folks! The crazy things that have been heard around our house!!!

Sooo, if you were a fly on the wall in my house this month you would have witnessed LOTS of crying, screaming, ranting, raving and fit throwing and that’s just by ME!!!!

Yes, we have moved… AGAIN!!!!!! Shoot me now.

I tell ya, I should buy stock in packing tape and boxes.

We moved from a city and house that I loved to a town and house that I DON’T love…. Trying to be diplomatic here. ;)

We are in temporary housing, read TEENY TINY HELL HOLE. Most of my books and all of my crafting/sewing are still in boxes. WAH!!!!!!!!! But we managed to fit it all in the house, sort of.  On the bright side, since we aren’t unpacking everything we are already done! LOL But the draw back of not putting stuff in storage? Yeah, we will have to repack it all and move it all again. SIGH….. Did I already ask to be shot? Can you shoot me again? Put me outta my misery!!!

The kids are all doing very well with this move. THANK GOODNESS!!! You see, we used to live here about 8 years ago. We have tons of friends and some family in the area and that helps greatly!

Oh, you are going to LOVE this. We live in such a tiny town that we (ME) had to install the cable, phone and internet ourselves! CRAZY!!! We kept calling and calling trying to get someone out here to hook us up. Apparently they only have 1 or 2 installers out here. Eventually they told us to just go in to the local office, pick up the equipment and do it ourselves. Niiiiice… We did it, though. We have cables and cords running all over but at least we are connected!

Apparently we have MICE!!! MICE!!!! BLECK!!!!! I saw evidence of mice when we first moved in but I was very hopeful that it might have been old evidence… Not so lucky. One of the cats caught and killed one the night before last. Can anyone say EXTERMINATOR???? YILES!! I swear, if I see bugs, I’m out and I’m leaving everything behind.

During this entire move all I have heard is WHY do I have SO many books??? Wah, wah, wah, nag, nag, nag. Wimps. LOL

So, I bet you want to know the juicy details, right? WHY did we move again??? Well, here ya go. The owner of the last company was a lying weasel. It took him 6 months to get our insurance and we never did get our HSA card. Then there were all the perks he promised that he never went through with. The Hubby was supposed to get a $15,000 bonus this month. All of a sudden the owner starts talking about how there will be no bonuses. WHAT??? Then there was the company vehicle that never really happened. Oh, we had one for about 2 wks and then the owner asked for it back because someone else needed it. WHAT???? Then there was the odd behavior and strange rumors. Is the company going under? Is the owner on drugs?? He started stiffing some of the parts providers (one of those providers is a good friend of The Hubby’s). Yeah. CRAZY!!! On top of all of that, he stiffed Jacob his last week and 2 days of pay. We may have to get the labor board involved. The Hubby was afraid this would happen, he had watched him do it to a couple of other employees.

I am so thankful that The Hubby has so many job opportunities. We are never stuck in a bad situation. It involves moving long distances but we don’t have to take crap. ;) Besides, living in so many different places builds character. You get to see more of the country, meet new people, expand your horizons. Trust me, I should know! I’ve lived in 6 different states (or is it 7)! I’ve moved more times than I can count. Shoot, I went to 11 different schools when I was a kid and that doesn’t count bouncing back and forth between the same schools. LOL

Wish me luck!

Sooooo, this month has been rather dull. NOT one single person has done ANYTHING remotely silly or funny. WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON AROUND HERE????? Maybe they are just getting better at hiding it from me??? Maybe we have the 6 weeks of school burn out???? Not sure but something HAS to change!!!

Don’t worry, I do have something to post, although it’s not our normal craziness…. Instead I have CUPCAKES!!! Hmmm, that might be even better than our normal craziness.

 

 

 

Cupcake Days 5

 

 

 

First we made zombie cupcakes from a kit we got at World Market.  A word to the wise, make sure you have powered sugar…. The green stuff that comes with it is NOT powdered sugar and the icing will taste like dog doo…. Yep. Definitely BLECK!!!!

 

Cupcake Days 10

 

 

 

 

Cupcake Days 11

 

 

Next we made Jack Skellington cupcakes! These were so much fun!!! And since the icing was store bough, they were very good! LOL

I used a regular chocolate cake mix and cream cheese icing. Then I used black Wilton Sparkle Gel to draw on the features.

 

 

 

Cupcake Days 12

 

Last we make Jack O’Lantern cupcakes! I used food coloring to make the cream cheese icing orange and the same black Wilton Sparkle Gel for the features.

 

 

9

 

Last Saturday I took Cailey and Colin to the Lowe’s Build and Grow.  They have been having SO MUCH FUN at these little workshops!!!! On Sunday, Joann’s will have a Monster’s University make and take. I think we HAVE to go to that one, too.

 

 

If you want to see what else we’ve been up to in this month check out What We Did Last Week  and Busy Homeschooling Days.

OH, BOY!! Do I have some GREAT stuff for you this month!!! I remembered to write it all down AND I kept up with the list!! Am I on top of things or what???? LOL

 

 

 

 

Let me set the scene for you….

Deanna has gone out the front door to put the trash bag in the can. I am sitting at the dining room table typing away on my laptop.

She opens the front door to come back in the house. She then slams the door and has a look of absolute shock and horror on her face like she has just seen a horrible accident.

Me – Are you OK? What happened?

Deanna – I almost DIED!

Me – OMGOSH! Come here! Are you OK? What HAPPENED???

Deanna – I was.. I was… ATTACKED BY A SQUIRREL!!!

Me – Wha?????

Deanna – OMG!! I think it was rabid.

Me – WHAT happened???

Deanna – I was just minding my own business and taking the trash out. I heard a scratching sound but thought it was a stray cat. I tossed the bag into the can and then a NINJA SQUIRREL jumped out. It almost got me. It jumped on the tree all upside-down and ninja-like! I could have DIED!!!

Me – *hysterical laughter*

Deanna – What’s so funny???? I was nearly killed by a psychotic squirrel!!!! LOOK! It’s still out there??? What was it doing in the trash can anyway??? Squirrels are herbivores! It was DEFINITELY rabid!

Me – We do eat vegetables on occasion…..

Deanna –  Not that often.

The next day –

Deanna comes running through the door.

Deanna – It’s still out there! It’s trying to get me! I saw it trying to get into the chimney by my room!!!

 

 

 

Deanna – Every since I had that dream about Big Bird, I just can’t look at him the same.

(She apparently had a nightmare that Big Bird tried to kill her.)

Me – At least you didn’t dream that you had to shoot Dan Aykroyd with a crossbow in a biker bar!

Hey, he was trying to kill me!!!

 

 

So, I’m scrolling through Facebook and I happen to see a similar ecard to the one above. Only, this one didn’t have the German on it. I had to look that up.

ANYWAY, I start shouting “ICH LIEBE DICH!” Scared Deanna half to death. It was awkward for a moment.

Afterwards she got into the spirit and we freaked the rest of the house out. ;)

 

 

 

Cailey loves all animals and I do mean ALL. She came in from outside one evening with a handful of slugs! She was having a good ol’ time playing with them…. UNTIL she realized how hard it was to get all the slime off of her hands.

 

 

Deanna and I were watching America’s Cutest Pet when she says, “OMGOSH! I am so dumb!”

Me – What?? You’re not dumb!

Deanna – Oh, you have NO idea! You just have NO idea about what I almost did!

Me – Well, now you have to tell me.

D – No way!!!!

Me – Oh, yes! You can’t just say something like that and leave it hanging. Nuh, unh! You better spill!

D – Well….. SIGH….. OK….. I saw that cute little kitty and I ….. umm…. was getting ready to try to call it out of the tv….

Me – *hysterical laughter*  FLY ON THE WALL!!!!!

 

Jacob and Joshua were playing Timesplitters.

Joshua – I kept shooting and shooting! I couldn’t figure out why I wasn’t getting any points! THEN I realized…. I am ON the red team!!!

 

 

 

Joshua – I still can’t get over the name that Live gave me. SIGH….. Crabbyblock ***????? REALLY????

 

 

 

Setting the scene –

Cailey and Colin have a friend (we’ll call her K) over and they are running all over the house playing. I am sitting at the dining room table (yep, on my laptop) and Jacob and Joshua are in the living room playing a game.

K – Spell i puppy.

Cailey – I p u p p y. HUH???

Then the giggles start.

Jacob – What?? i-p-u-p-p-y???  (his voice holds a note of bewilderment) i-p  u-p-p y??? (you can hear his eyes rolling at this point)

Jacob to Joshua – That’s not even close! When we were kids we were cool. It was spell I cup. HA! MUCH better!

Me – *hysterical laughter*

The boys continue on in this vein for quite a while.

 

 

Joshua – Googley Elmo invented the radio.

Me – What?????

Joshua – Yeah, Googley Elmo.

Me – Marconi invented the radio.

Joshua – Yeah, Googley Elmo Marconi.

Me – OH, you mean Guglielmo Marconi.

Joshua – That’s what I said. Googley Elmo!

 

 

 

We are traveling back from Hilton Head when we see the above sign.

My Dad – Hey! Look! There’s the Bat Cave!

Colin – Na na na na na BATMAN!!!!

 

 

Sooo… Jacob and Joshua were playing against each other on Just Dance 4 the other night…. They actually got into an argument over who did better. Joshua seems to have skunked Jacob on Rick Astley’s Never Gonna Give You Up, while Jacob trounced Joshua on Selena Gomez’s Love Song. Yeah…. It was a strange, strange night.

 

 

The Fog at the Cabin in the Woods on Friday the 13th…. That’s where you can read the full story. Here are some of the parts that I left out.

 

Me, practically standing in the creek while yelling up at my phone – JOSHUA, IF YOU CAN HEAR ME, WE CAN’T GET OUR CELLS TO WORK. CAN’T CALL YOU!!!

Me, putting the worms on the hook for Cailey. Yes, I can bait my own hooks. I just don’t like to if I can keep from it. BLECK!!!!

Me, the look on my face the ENTIRE time we were there…….

Deanna  when she realizes no cell phone reception also means no wi-fi.

Cailey and Colin when they realize no cable.

Deanna’s face when she realizes that I was NEVER exaggerating about the humidity in Nashville.

The Hubby’s face when my mother-in-law pulled out a TON of baby pics of him and started passing them around. My fave was the one with him on the toilet. ;)

Poor Cailey at my mother-in-law’s house when her dog realizes that she is the only one scared of him. Poor Cailey was shaking like a leaf! Thor wouldn’t leave her alone.

Oh, and Thor looks like this

He’s at least part Min Pin.

 

 

 

Sooo, it was a little late when we started heading back home. Deanna was riding up front with me and we may have had a little too much caffeine…… Everyone else was asleep, which just proves my theory that they can sleep through ANYTHING!

Anyway…. We were listening to the radio and getting a little loopy and silly. We did the opera voices to “We Are the Champions.” Pretty soon things got out of hand and we started changing the lyrics to all the songs to stuff about pie. Yeah, pie….. Deanna outdid herself. ;)

 

 

So, did you make it through all of that? Still with me?? Then you most definitely want to check out the other blogs on the list. They are AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!

Sooooo…. I usually try to keep a running list of all the kooky, crazy, nutty stuff my family says during the month. Ummm… Well…. This time I forgot. Yep. I kept telling everyone to remind me to write the stuff down. You think they forgot on purpose??? Naw…. Surely not!

Anyway, since I have no list and I have the memory of a gnat, I decided to go with what has been on my mind all month. HOMESCHOOLING!!! We started back on Monday (read about it)! SO much work goes into getting everything ready for the new school year. YILES!!!! Here I can show you some of the fruits of my labor.

 

I am MUCH more hands on when it comes to the youngest 2 kids. They have never been to public school and like to do things as hands on as possible. The older kids have always wanted me to throw them a book and leave them alone. HAH! THAT doesn’t happen very often. ;) Well, I might throw them a book but it’s a living book and NOT a text. BLECK!!!!

ANYWAY!! Here are a few things that the younger kids have this week.

 

Rocks 006 Rocks 008 Rocks and Minerals 005 rocks and minerals 007

 

 

In these pics, C&C are doing more experiments on rocks (click for the unit study) using our Young Scientist Club kit #7. In the top pics they are testing whether or not the rocks are magnetic. In the bottom 2 pics they are doing hardness tests.

 

 

 

Collage Israel

 

 

Israel Study010

 

In the next pics, we are doing our Israel study.  C&C made the Israeli flag out of construction paper in the top pic. The bottom is a picture of our Little Passports Israel package. They love those SOOOOO much!!! After reading and doing the activities (and trying to catch a flying dreidel), they signed on to their account and did the activities there.

 

 

Collage Bears

 

We’ve also been doing our bear study this week. Cailey made hers a bear family while Colin made his scary!! LOL

 

 

Collage Mosaics

 

Making mosaics was another activity in the Marco Polo for Kids book. We tried making mosaics last year for Ancient Greece and they did NOT enjoy it. This time I decided to go for something easier and had them color pictures instead!

For our Marco Polo unit click HERE.

 

We have read a TON of books this week! SHEW!!!!!

SUCH a busy first week but so much FUN!!!!!

 

If you want to see the other pics from this week click HERE!!!!!

 

 

Now, don’t forget to check out the wonderful, marvelous bloggers that are participating this month!!! I promise you won’t regret it. They are FAR more entertaining that I am! LOL ;)

Fly on the Wall ~ July


 

It’s that time, again!! YIPPPEEEE!!! Fly on the Wall!!! Thought up by the marvelous Karen at Baking in a Tornado!

This month I decided to do something a little different…. Just a little. As you may know Jacob, our oldest son, has moved back home! YAY!!!!!! And since then we have dredged up a bit of an old family tradition. We call it “The Music Game”. In The Music Game, The Hubby will play a song and the rest of us have to name the band and the song title, extra points if you know the year. We do songs from almost all genres and spanning at least 6 decades. The older kids LOVE it and the little ones love to listen along.

So, if you were a fly on the wall at my house over the past month, here are a few songs you might have heard.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hope you had fun!!!! These are just a few of my favorites that we have heard while playing The Music Game! ;)

It definitely helps with the kids’ musically knowledge. Maybe one day I will do a list of their favorite classical pieces. LOL

Don’t forget to check out all the amazing bloggers on the list!!!!

Evil Joy Speaks

There’s the line-up!! Be sure to check them all out. They are some seriously funny ladies. ;)

Oh, boy! Do I have some good ones for you!!! LOL

Here lately anytime someone does something funny or silly, the rest of the gang will yell, “Well, THAT’S going on the Fly on the Wall!” Even The Hubby has gotten in on the act. ;)

Apparently Deanna wants to go to Poohru. Like Peru only I bet it doesn’t smell very nice…..

I would like to introduce you to Donny Jepp. Yep, that one was me….

This one should be titled, “The Night I Almost Died!”

I have VERY short legs. My PJ pants tend to go over my feet. Now, add in the fact that I tried to step over a laundry basket and I bet you can guess what happened. I went flying through the air while carrying my laptop. I landed on one of Colin’s toys and rolled! The laptop was fine. My shin was NOT. I still have a knot there.

SIGH…. I could trip over nothing…..

The Hubby was impressed, though.

SIGH…. I may never live it down.

Colin – I can see sooooo great!! I have the eyes of a tiger!

So, I went to pay our rent online. Apparently they want to charge $56!!!!! TO PAY THE RENT ONLINE!! WHAT??? I don’t think so…. I drove it out to the management company. Yeah. That’s CRAZY!!! I almost had a heart attack!!

Pudding was the source of a great debate in our house over the past few weeks. Yes, pudding…. The Hubby thought that ALL pudding was sugar free. He just wouldn’t hear otherwise. Well, we all know what happened next, don’t we. I just HAD to prove him wrong. I bought a few packs of sugar free and NOT sugar free. LOL

Cailey – It must be sooooo cool to have your own site!

We were all sitting out on the porch one evening when we heard Deanna scream bloody murder. Loki had just peed on her leg! ROFLOL!! She was completely mortified. We thought it was hilarious! ;)

I LOOOOOOOVE Yankee Candles. I mean LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE them!!!! BUT what is up with the pushy sales ladies??? OH MY GOSH!!! Joshua and I were at the mall when I decided to just stop in. Now, I have been in candle withdrawal. 2 moves in 6 months doesn’t leave a lot of extra for candles, y’know. But I wanted SOMETHING. They were having a sale on tarts and I figured I could justify that. ;) But the lady just would NOT leave me alone. Joshua called her a candle pusher! ROFLOL!! It’s enough to make you want to order them online and never set foot in one of the stores. Do they work on commission????

This is very close to what the 2nd floor and stairs looked like one morning. Apparently the girls’ room was just as bad judging by Deanna’s screams.  There was also yarn involved. I say, dog = TP, cats = yarn. It just makes sense. ;)

We were all sitting watching TV when I noticed that Deanna was petting one of my black socks…. I asked her why. She freaks out. Apparently she thought it was the kitten. No, she wasn’t wearing her glasses. It reminded of a movie where a lady thinks she’s petting a cat only it’s a rat instead.

Hmmm, would that be terrible?? Noooo….. I think it would be great. Hee hee hee hee!! ;)

The kids and I were talking about a bunch of crazy stuff that’s happened in the past. They encouraged me to share some of it with you.

See, Hubby! It’s THEIR fault.

Oh, who am I kidding, he doesn’t even read the blog. ;)

About 10 years ago The Hubby and I went on a trip. He was going to check out jobs in New Jersey and Virginia. We stopped one night in a small town in Virginia to eat and get a room.

We decided to go to Shoney’s. Yummy!!!

The Hubby loads up his plate and sits down, ready to dig in. He takes a heaping spoonful, “Hmmm. Banana pudding!”

The next thing I know he is spitting it out all over the place. “Iss nah puddin!! Iss nah puddin!!!”

Nope! Not banana pudding! It’s BUTTER!!!

I am DYING!!!! I can’t breathe!! I look over and our server is dying. The lady at the buffet is dying.

It was a very long time before I could get him to step into a Shoney’s again.

Last year the girls and I were at a church picnic. The Hubby calls and is freaking out. He went to smell the bottle of CHLORINE and nearly passed out!!! OH MY GOSH!!! I freaked out!

He completely missed the warning on the side of bottle in GINORMOUS letters.

Why would he smell it you ask??? He loves the smell of chlorine. EWWW!!!!

Good grief.

Years ago Jacob was reading something for school.

Jacob – Momma, what’s a dork knob?

Me – A what?? Let me see that.

Jacob, that say DOORKNOB!!!!

Jacob (about 12 years old and playing a video game) – I’m moving so fast only your eyes can see me!

– I’m so good! I have acid reflexes!!!

Ok. I think I will save the rest for latter.  ;)

May Fly on the Wall


Welcome to a Fly on the Wall group post. Today 13 bloggers are inviting you to catch a glimpse of what you’d see if you were a fly on the wall in our homes. Come on in and buzz around my house.

 

Buzz around, see what you think, then click on these links for a peek into some other homes:

First off, this is what I have probably looked like this past month –

And the house still looks a little like this –

Now on to what you might have heard!

The Hubby – What does that sign say? Alvin Heights???

Me – OMGosh! You should realllly wear your glasses! It says ASIA KITCHEN!!!!

We started watching the North America series on Discovery Channel. At one point it shows a bobcat trying to catch a mole.

Colin (hysterically laughing) – LOOK!!! The bobcat is playing Whack – a – Mole!!!!!

Afterward the bobcat starts playing with the dead mole.

We were watching another episode of North America, this one with mountain goats, the other night. The little baby mountain goat was too scared to cross the river.

Colin – Mommy, sometimes you just have to get over your fears.

The narrator – Sometimes you just have to get over your fears.

Colin – HEY!! He copied me!!!!!

 

 

 

Colin – I am so hungry I can feel the stomach acid eating away at my insides. (He’s 6, BTW….)

 

The day the movers came it was raining. No, it wasn’t just raining, it was a mini monsoon!! Naturally….

Anyway, the movers only really had one choice when I came to unloading our stuff. They were going to have to block the street for a little while.

Now, that being said, this is NOT a main thoroughfare. It is NOT a dead end street. It is a VERY small, quiet, neighborhood street. There MIGHT be 20 houses on it but I doubt it.

So, the movers put out the orange triangle things and the fun begins.

Most people calmly turned around went another way.

Some did NOT.

One “lady” (and I use the term VERY loosely) – ***BEEEEEEEEEEEP BEEEEEEEEEEEP BEEEEEEEEEEEEEP*** (She is just laying on that horn for all it’s worth like the movers are just going to drop our couch and move out of her way.)

Me – So sorry! But you will have to go around!

The “lady” – What the !#$%??? Why the !#$% did you block the road? I go down this !#$%ing street everyday!

Me – Well, today you will just have to turn around and go another way. Sorry.

The “lady” – ***BEEEEEEEEEEEEP BEEEEEEEEEEEP BEEEEEEEEEP*** (She then throws trash out of her window.) You are a !#$%ing @#$%^&!

She continues on in that way until she turns around.

I think what ticked me off most was her littering!! There was just no call for that! LOL

Deanna has gone on a diet. Now first let me say that I do NOT condone it…. I have been trying and trying and trying to tell her to just cut out the junk, add more fruits and veggies and exercise more… She is a teenage girl so you can probably figure out how far I got with that…

She and Joshua have a bet going. If she wins (by staying on the diet 3 weeks) she gets to shoot him with an air soft gun. If she cheats on the diet she has to buy Joshua a game.

Can I just say that I am now sick to death of Joshua running to me and asking if XYZ is OK for her to eat?????? OH MY GOSH!!!  I swear he must ask me 10 times a day!!!!

Thankfully there is just one more week to go!! I hope we can all get through it without taping Joshua’s mouth shut!! LOL

If you’ve been following along you know that we spent 2 weeks in 2 hotel rooms…. SIGH….

Joshua – Oh, no!!! Dad is going down to the other room to use the bathroom! I was getting ready to go down there and play a game. I guess I’ll just have to wait now.

The next day The Hubby went back down to the 2nd room…. As he came out of the bathroom Joshua says, “It stinks in here,” in a very depressed tone. LOL

One day the hotel decided to check the fire alarms in the rooms. Over and over and over again. We were about ready to hurt someone by the time it was over.

One day (still while staying at the hotel) Joshua comes up from the vending machines.

Joshua – I am NEVER getting on that elevator again! I swear it’s possessed! It made this awful noise!

He then tried to imitate it.

The next day I talk him into going down to the laundry with me.

He was right. The elevator was DEFINITELY possessed. It took a few days before I could be convinced to ride on it again…. It sounded like the elevator from hell!!!!

I realized yesterday that I made a BIG mistake in my sewing room/library….. I accidentally covered all the outlets with bookshelves!!!!

I was in a bit of a panic for a little while until I saw that if I pulled one of the shelves out just a tiny bit, I could fit my hand behind there and reach an outlet. SHEW!!!

Some days I think my brain is on vacation. I just wish it would take the rest of me with it!!!!

The Hubby was going down the stairs the other night and we hear – OUCH!! What the HE&&???

Colin – My booby trap worked!!!

The Hubby – I hate Legos.

And now for some of my favorite LOLCats! ;)

As usual I pretty much forgot a lot of the stuff that happened. I even added stuff to my iPhone this time but instead of writing what happened I left myself keywords…. With my memory that didn’t help very much…. LOL I still can’t remember what “wainbows” means!!!
