Sometimes on Friday I have to think really hard of an experience from my past in order to link up with MiMi for her F Bomb Friday. Then there are weeks like this week, when I have 3 "mini bombs" that I have trouble picking from. So, you get all 3! Please control your excitement...
Roon and I are redecorating our half bathroom. I spent a couple weeks on the phone and exchanging emails with my little sister, getting her expert opinion about how best to do it. We formulated a plan, after pricing things online, and went to Home Depot to make our purchases. We already knew we were going to have to special order our vanity top, and budgeted based on the average cost of the size and basic material we would need. After sitting down with our "granite guy", and giving our specifications, he gave us the price. $380. What the flip?! Our new vanity PLUS most of the other materials didn't cost that much combined! As Roon would say: "I hope it comes with a hundred dollars taped to it!".
Yesterday, when Sissy and Bubble got home from school, Bubble grudgingly admitted that he had been on "Yellow" that day (discipline system...Black: Excellent, Green: Good, Yellow: Warning, so on and so forth). If my children are on anything less than Green, they have at home consequences. After a fair amount of discussion, we decided that being grounded from his DS for the evening would suffice. As bedtime approached, and Roon was upstairs with the kids, I heard Roon tell Bubble that he didn't think Bubble should be doing something. I didn't hear the whole thing. Then Roon hollered down to where I was working on the computer, to ask if Bubble was supposed to be playing on the DS. Why does this make me oblivious? It is stored in a drawer that is not even 6 feet away from where I was sitting, that's why! What the Heck?!
Lucky? Not so much.
Remember a while ago when I posted THIS STORY? For those who read my blog regularly, and don't want to click and read the story, it's the one involving "Slapstick" and my not so flattering nickname. I received an email yesterday informing me of my monthly visiting route. Take a wild guess who I get to go visit now...
Great. Just, great.
Go link up with MiMi! I mean it!
