A Blustery Day

I was watching the weather and decided to ignore the advice on "stay in side wind gusts will be between 70 -100 mph" I thought that it would be fun to go to the mall instead. I loaded up all four kids and headed to the mall for story time at the library. I promptly at 11:30 only to find out that story time was at 11! So we checked out books and did some shopping. When it was time to leave I packed up the kids only to find that Natalie had exploded all over her clothes and therefore got a new outfit at Old Navy. Once again got the kids ready to go, opened the door to the outside and experienced several gusts of wind. The first took Natalies blanket and landed it in a muddy puddle. The next took the clothes that I had in the back of the car that I am donating to good will. I chased them down and also recovered a helmet that had escaped. I quickly loaded the kids in the car and then chased down my new double stroller that had run away. I then spent the next five minutes trying to figure out how to fold the stroller up but the wind was so strong and my hands so frozen I just couldn't do it. And this is why I drove all the way home with my double stroller jammed in the back of my car unfolded. Next time I think I will stay in.

A completely different world

I must say being in Alaska is quite different. I love it here it is so laid back. I do have to comment on the roads though. In Pennsylvania a fleet of trucks would plow, salt, and sand all the roads at the first mention of snow or freezing rain. I guess up here they just don't care since we get so much all winter long. We have gone from feet of snow and -20 to freezing rain and 30 degrees in a matter of days. Let me just tell you what this does to the roads... any one have ice skates?!

I have a butt crack

After taking Jereme to school this morning Jordon began to whine over and over again in the car. "Mom I have a butt Crack"......humm...what does one make of that. "What do you mean" I say. "I have a butt crack that you pull pants off of." I think for a minute and assume that he must have a wedgie. I tell him to hold on and that we are almost home. While getting him out he turns around and yells "Look mom I have a butt crack" showing me that his pants were down past his butt the whole ride.. LOL!

Dear Previous Tenant

My sister recently took over your old apartment, so naturally I offered to help her clean it. I know that we all live different lives and have our own ways in which we do things... but come on. The amount of cat and dog hair that you left behind is innumerable as the sands on the beach. I am haunted by the fear of running across a furless animal in the future since I know I just vaccumed it all up. Speaking of hair.. how does one get so much hair stuck to the inside of the fridge? And speaking of stuck.. what is with that washcloth frozen in an ice block stuck to the bathroom window? We have many hours of cleaning left to do and so I felt it necessary to thank you for all the work you have created for us. Oh and by the way if you are looking for your Jack Daniels, broom, 12 glasses, santa in a sleigh, toilet brush, 20 disposable razors, ex-lax, and all other items that are too many to name you won't find them here. We have donated them to the Alaska Waste Lands.

Thanks again

Lady with nothing else to do.
