So then he reminded me that he has my medical proxy giving him permission to pull the plug. For some reason I can never win with him. He also likes to put things on the high shelves so I can't reach them. then he stands back and laughs at me.
You just didn't beat him enough when he was a child... Next time he puts something up high, threaten to climb up the front of him to reach it.

That was the height of wit for my baby brother, all 6' 4" of him, until I climbed up the front of him...must of been the knee to his chin that brought him to his senses. After that he didn't think it was fun to hold things out of my reach.

In my world everyone is taller than me. Even all my kids. I will remember your words. And I was so nice to him tonight. I gave him the leftover whipped cream. Next time I will eat it.

That's the way to go mommie Teach him it dosen't pay to give you a bad time. And make sure to eat that cream right in front of him.

Steve and I went to the shops this morning and bought another Wii U game, Call of Duty Black Ops 2...we also bought some more lovely tinsel for Christmas next year, all half price

We then went out to lunch at Noodle Box, that was delicious!

This afternoon we have been playing Call of Duty and now about to get our buffet organised

Happy New Years Eve

I can't find either of my two scrapers and I now have a huge scratch in my windshield from the wiper. I sat and cried for a few minutes because I was looking forward to finally getting to church and it was too late to get a ride.
Turns out the windshield scratch isn't bad but the blade did break the arm which will have to be fixed at the dealership. We didn't want to do a lot on this car until the estate was settled because we plan to get it to trade-in shape and get me a vehicle that is better suited for me. I drive Dad's 95 Sunfire which is low to the ground and not easy for me to get in and out of, nor is it good for long drives. I would rather be up higher and so we will get a used SUV or van. That way we have a good camping vehicle and if I do get back into cakes and/or catering, I have a proper vehicle for hauling my stuff. There was also a tiny hole in the windshield fluid container so it was seeping out - why I didn't know I was out! It looks like we may be getting a new vehicle sooner than we think and financing it, or sinking more into this one.

Bummer about the wiper arm.

Before I bought a car, I rented Toyota Echos. The seats are nice and high off the ground (and surprisingly roomy inside). I betcha a Yaris would be comfortable for you.
