Okay bargain hunters, are you ready to see what’s up on the clearance rack today? Great! But first, let’s make a quick stop in the
Customer Service Department
I have three pieces of business to discuss with you all. None of them are funny or entertaining, so I will reward you for reading with my 7th grade class picture.
- I posted Friday’s Family Work link-up on Thursday evening. About ten minutes later the server crashed, locking out all of the blogs on my entire network. and did not come up until late Friday. If you missed it, please check it out here.
- Tomorrow is a big day. Nicholeen Peck, author of author of Parenting A House United: Changing Children’s Hearts and Behaviors by Teaching Self Governement, is stopping in to teach us some of the very powerful principles that are contained in her book. I am not exaggerating a bit when I tell you that learning the self government principles she teaches has had a transformative effect on my family (for the better). You don’t want to miss this post. (Subscription options at the top of this page.)
- Tomorrow is also the day I randomly select the winner of the virtual room review. Enter here, if you haven’t yet.
Anyone need a spaghetti dispenser?
Facebook fans got an early glimpse of this beauty when I posted it to Frantically Simple’s page. I saw this sign hanging in a public restroom last week. I had to take a picture with my old-lady phone, text it to Walt and have him email to me from his iphone. For you.
Note the crayoned caption.
So that’s where spaghetti comes from… Who knew?
Here is a small sampling of what I’ve googled in the last week:
Clip art garbage
UTI older dog
Substitute sucanat for brown sugar
Homemade floor cleaner vinegar
My life is too exciting for words.
Here is a small sampling of what others have googled to find me:
School PE Sockless - I never tried that, but who am I to judge? I make my own deodorant and put powdered eggshells on my face.
Hoe many days in August - How many days in August is my #1 search term. Hoe many days in August is new – I’m choosing to believe the person is an ambitious summer gardener.
Make yogurt – odd smell - That might have less to do with yogurt and more to do with sockless PE. I’m just sayin’…
Where to buy nightingale dropping face powder – Nightingale wha-? I have no idea where to buy that, but now I want to. Not to use. Just to know. Add that one to my google list.
Grocery: Bananas and Nuts
My parents were here for a weekend visit. Need I say more?
Actually yes, I do need to say more, because when a lady who looks like this:
absentmindedly begins singing
country girl, shake it for me, girl/shake it for me, girl/shake it for me
in a semi-operatic voice from the back seat of my car, well, that’s just something that must be shared with the world. The singing (and waving her arms in 4/4 time) was after she leaned up and started plucking the long old-man hairs from my dad’s ears but before she realized her song lyrics could be considered a bit risque and she was forced to counter them with mock-swearing.
I’ve decided that my last post (September 5) in the Family Work series should be a fun one.
What’s more fun than a prize to giveaway?
