You know your hair is long when....

The other night Art and snuggled up to go to sleep and this was our conversation.

me: you're on my hair
art: oh
me: you're on my hair
art: sorry
me: you're on my hair
art: I know I am sorry
me: well get off of it
art: I am trying but I am not sure what to do
me: oh....I am on my hair

It is bad when you realize YOU are the one in the wrong. Sorry for blaming you Art. was good for a laugh.

New Chapter

Life is full of changes. We are starting a new chapter in our lives. We went to Cascade this past weekend. Oh my gosh...I have never seen so many bugs. When we closed the cabin Art put a bug bomb in the basement and it worked well. But we both grabbed a vacuum and in no time we had it all cleaned. I scrubbed the rest of the house down and boy if I do say so myself, it looked good and even better it felt so clean.

We even planted artificial flowers in the front yard. Art commented that we were Wavie gardeners. For those who don't understand Art supplies my mom (Wavie) with artificial flowers and they are planted in her gardens at her house. She has a knack for making them look real and her gardens are beautiful. You can see from the photos, I didn't inherit the knack but it looked cute none the less. I am sure the deer will have it destroyed by the time we get back up there but it was fun.

So what is the new chapter I mentioned you ask. We met with a Realtor and we are selling the cabin. It has been a bitter sweet decision but after much prayer we are moving on with a new chapter in our lives. We look forward with much anticipation to the beginning of this chapter. But until the time it actually sells we are going to keep going up and enjoying it.

In Honor of Stupid People

A friend sent this to me and I thought it was to good to not share.
In Honor of Stupid People . . . . In case you needed further proof that the human race is doomed through stupidity, here are some actual label instructions on consumer goods.

On a Sears hairdryer -- Do not use while sleeping.
(That's the only time I have to work on my hair.)

On a bag of Fritos -- You could be a winner! No purchase necessary. Details inside.
(the shoplifter special?)

On a bar of Dial soap -- "Directions: Use like regular soap."
(and that would be???....)

On some Swanson frozen dinners -- "Serving suggestion: Defrost."
(but, it's just a suggestion.)

On Tesco's Tiramisu dessert (printed on bottom) -- "Do not turn upside down."
(well...duh, a bit late, huh!)

On Marks & Spencer Bread Pudding -- "Product will be hot after heating."
(...and you thought????...)

On packaging for a Rowenta iron -- "Do not iron clothes on body."
(but wouldn't this save me time?)

On Boot's Children Cough Medicine -- "Do not drive a car or operate machinery after taking this medication."
(We could do a lot to reduce the rate of construction and auto accidents if we could just get those 5 & 6 year-olds with head-colds out of the cars and off those bulldozers.)

On Nytol Sleep Aid -- "Warning: May cause drowsiness."
(...I'm taking this because???....)

On most brands of Christmas lights -- "For indoor or outdoor use only."
(as opposed to what?)

On a Japanese food processor -- "Not to be used for the other use."
(now, somebody out there, help me on this. I'm a bit curious.)
On Sainsbury's peanuts -- "Warning: contains nuts."
(talk about a news flash- What did you expect?? )
On an American Airlines packet of nuts -- "Instructions: Open packet, eat nuts."
(Step 3: say what?)

On a child's Superman costume -- "Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly."
