kads, that sounds like a lot of fun. it would be neat in a few years to get one of those shirts framed, as a gift.

and thank you everyone. i don't know what to say. i'm just so glad that lefse took the time out of her very busy schedule to come meet me since i couldn't even get out for a lunch break. a co-worker got injured on friday, so i was flying the network solo on saturday. so she came to me, and it made my weekend. thanks lefse. the blessings and smiless were all mine.

Kades, you are one lucky lady and that little one is luckier still. Sounds like an idea I'll be borrowing for my little ones next time I see them. Now I just need to buy 5 little tiny t-shirts and 1 extra huge 1 too. Already have the paints. Thanks for sharing such a sweet story.

Buckster, life is too short not to take experiences and turn them into memories. As I told you, I love memories. Effort? > To meet you, believe me, no effort, but total enjoyment. Remember how we were talking about all of us DC'ers meeting up in one common place, wish it could somehow happen. That would be great fun................

Kades, your story took all of the rascallyness right out of me. I used to do such fun things with my kids when they were children. They were truly a blessing to me. I am touched whenever a parent takes the time to truly have fun with their children. That's one of the most important ways to let them know you love them. Of course, proper discipline and order, and teaching them accountability are equally important. But unfortunately, many adults forget how to play, or at least how to play at a child's level. I am certain that you made Cade's day. And in my book, that makes you someone special, a real cut above the rest.

Well, it wasn't the last thing, but since it happened as I was taking a bath, getting ready for bed at about 6:00 this morning, I couldn't tell you about it then! lol

I was taking a bath, and as usual the kitties (who now both look like girls! grrr) came over to watch and sniff the water. I picked each of them up (separately, so I wouldn't drop one in!) and as I held each of them, I slowly dunked their tails in the water. They didn't notice, and their tails got really wet. When I put them down on the floor, they were okay until they both were "attacked" by long wet snakes! They went berserk! They were running in circles to get away from their wet tails--I thought they were going to fall over from dizziness, but they didn't! It was so cute!

Knowing that I'm off 4 days. These people feel bad that one of the paid holidays is on a Friday,which is our closed day anyway, so, they are closing Monday too and paying the ones with those benefits. I am not one since I have not been ther long enough anyway, but, I don't care. Does not bother me right now. I have 4 days to get my head together again. woohoo

I am going back to the storage place. I may be making a mistake, but, nothing is permanent, right?
