This is what we woke up to this morning. Very pretty, a little cold for me and thankfully no snow. We keep hearing we are going to pay for having such great weather, but I keep hoping we continue to have this mild winter with no huge snow storms. The beginning of the month was freezing temperatures, in the negatives and I did not like that at all. So here is hoping we continue to have 40 and 50 degree weather this winter.

This is how I found Katie the other day. She went to her room upset and put herself in time out. Apparently it was to much for her and she feel asleep. I think this little girl is to smart for her own good.

Feelin' Crafty

I was feeling a bit crafty on Friday and decided to make a little art. I had bought these cabinet doors a while back but had never used them. I saw something similar to this in blog land but didn't like it as much so I came up with my own idea and decided to do I am a child of God around the edges. I think they turned out pretty cute. If I were to do it again, I would have painted the door white and then put the color on top of it and stressed it a little. Live and learn right.

Oh the things they do.....

When I walked out of the office I found this......
and this........
which led to this......
and this.

I remember doing this as a child in the hall way leading to my bedroom. The pencil marks were the same height as me so I couldn't blame it on anyone else although I am sure I tried.
We got it all cleaned up thanks to magic eraser.

Retired Husband

After I retired, my wife insisted that I accompany her on her trips to Walmart.

Unfortunately, like most men, I found shopping boring and preferred to get in and get out. Equally unfortunate, my wife is like most women - she loves to browse.

Yesterday my dear wife received the following letter from the local Walmart:

Dear Mrs Harris,
Over the past six months, your husband has caused quite a commotion in our store. We cannot tolerate this behavior and have been forced to ban both of you from the store. Our complaints against your husband, Mr Harris, are listed below and are documented by our video surveillance cameras:

  • June 15: He took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in other people's carts when they weren't looking.
  • July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in Housewares to go off at 5 minute intervals.
  • July 7: He made a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to the women's restroom.
  • July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an official voice, "Code 3 in Housewares. Get on it right away." This caused the employee to leave her assigned station and receive a reprimand from her supervisor that in turn resulted with a union grievance, causing management to lose time and costing the company money.
  • August 4: Went to the Service Desk and tried to put a bag of M&Ms on layaway.
  • August 14: Moved a "CAUTION - WET FLOOR" sign to a carpeted area.
  • August 15: Set up a tent in the camping department and told the children shoppers he'd invited them in if they would bring pillows and blankets from the bedding department to which twenty children obliged.
  • August 23: When a clerk asked if they could help him he began crying and screamed, 'Why can't you people just leave me alone?' EMTs were called
  • September 4: Looked right into the security camera and used it as a mirror while he picked his nose.
  • September 10: While handling guns in the hunting department, he asked the clerk where the anti-depressants were.
  • October 3: Darted around the store suspiciously while loudly humming the 'Mission Impossible' theme.
  • October 6: In the auto department, he practiced his 'Madonna Look' by using different sizes of funnels.
  • October 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browsed through, yelled 'PICK ME! PICK ME!'
  • October 21: When an announcement came over the loud speaker, he assumed the fetal position and screamed "OH NO! IT'S THOSE VOICES AGAIN!'
And last but not least:
  • October 23: Went into a fitting room, shut the door, waited awhile, then yelled very loudly, 'Hey! There's no toilet paper in her.' One of the clerks passed out.

I hope you got a good laugh out of this one as I did.

Just got an update from the Goss Family. Abigail could possibly be going home on Tuesday or Wednesday. She is out of the PICU and on the oncology floor. She is off all antibiotics and and doing better. She still has a lot of sores in her mouth but nonetheless, she may be able to join her family at home soon. Please continue to pray for her and her family.
