NOTHING like finishing up preparing 7 different doughs to bake the next day and having your sink clog on ya. NOTHING like scrubbing your tub in the bathroom with no windows and having the power going out on ya. NOTHING like being told the plumber will come between 3-5 PM, then getting a call at 4:30 and being told he is running late. NOTHING like getting a call asking if you want to fill in for your mom and work Sunday which will then pay for the plumber call (score!) NOTHING like hanging a sign on your craft room door that says, stay out, wrapping presents, then sitting in said room eating candy you bought for stockings. Yep NOTHING like it!
At PetSmart the other day, a couple came in with their little girl dog. She was licking and sniffing all over Frankie and Gracie said, "Wow Frankie, I never saw a girl so interested in you!"
Grace: "mom, why is iguana illegal? Me: frowning at her "what?!"....then it hits me " you mean marijuana?" Grace: "ya marijuana..."
Grace: we love the chilli at the school cafeteria! it comes from the milk factory! * strange look from mom and dad* Grace: ya the same people that deliver the milk deliver the chilli!
Gracie: "mom can i go downstairs and get on the computer?" Mom: "Ask your dad" Gracie: (exasperated) "Why can't i just be a free american and do what i want!" Mom: "go ask your dad if your allowed to be a free american"
"have you ever heard of tornado alley? it's where alot of tornados go alot, not many people live on that street anymore"
So I just wiped my face down with witch-hazel and frankie walked up and kissed me on the cheek, I said ewe! Witch hazel, he sputters and says I'm not sure that's good for you, I said its all natural, and in all his frankie wisdom, he sarcastically said, ya, so is poison ivy!
From Frankie; Mom is like a bloodclot in the flow of life. Get her in a crowd and she stops it up. **This came after i evidently took too long after church talking to another lady....
*queen bee was located on the window sill INSIDE the house, dad sprays with hairspray, then picks up with spoon and takes to the toilet to dispose of it. Frankie: now that's what i call a royal flush!
"i can't believe they didnt' let me see the animals! they know that i love animals! why wouldn't they let me see the animals?!"
