Let's Change The Subject

A- I gotta an idea! Why don't we use that old kitchen cabinet hanging in the garage for the bathroom? We can paint it and make it look brand new! And it's FREE!!


A-But, we don't have anywhere to put towels and it's the perfect size.

C-We can go buy one.

A-But, this one is free!


A-Why do you always poo-poo my good ideas?

C-Because moving that cabinet is a bad idea not a good one!

One day later at Home Depot

A- Let's look at bathroom cabinets.


A- Look, here's one

C-Yea, that'll do.

A-It's $101.00!

C-Let's use the cabinet in the garage.

A-Oooooh! That's a great idea! (April suppresses mocking behavior all the way to the check out.)

April's Saturday Brilliance

-Sold children's clothing at Once Upon a Child earned-50.93
-Sold one pair of rejected pants to Plato's Closet-3.10
-Spent 74.00 at Old Navy buying shirts for my husband and a pair of unneeded shorts and a shirt for Isaac because he came to the store with his dad in a shirt 3 sizes too small and a pair of broken overalls and we were going out to eat and well, he looked a bit like no one had put any thought into what he looked like....oh, right that's why I had to buy him some new clothes.
-Convinced my husband to help paint and hang the old kitchen cabinet in the bathroom- FREE!

My Busy Schedule This Week!

-Teach my husband that when I say McGraw-Hill it's in reference to country music superstars not book publishers.
- Work on dance moves for the McGraw Hill concert. And a 5,6,7,8....
- Find outfit to wear to McGraw Hill concert (should I be Faith or Tim?)
- Purchase lighters, body glitter and maybe make a few posters that say "I heart Tim and Faith" for McGraw Hill concert. Yeeehaw!
-Teach my husband the words to all McGraw Hill songs especially the duets so we can work on a routine together!! He's doing really well on their new one when Tim has a bit part that goes "I wanna know, I wanna know, I wanna know..." We have a lot of work to do on this.
-Find a white "wife beater" tank top, tight pair of Wranglers and black cowboy hat for Hubby to look like Tim, oooh and a big honkin' belt buckle, ride em' cowboy!
-Suppress my giddy screams, cheerleader jumps and jazz hands in front of the children everytime a McGraw Hill song comes on the radio.

It's going to be a very busy week, how will I ever get everything done?

Um, while you are dancing in the packed third row, don't step on my blue suede boots or I'll have to be sockin' y'all.

Musical, athletic, AND a keen sense of humor?!

I have some wife beaters that I go jogging in, Clay can borrow one if he needs to. It'll definitely be the right tightness.

I have mastered the art of saying rather sarcastically "What a wonderful idea" When Hubby comes up with something I tried to sell him on weeks or even months before. And he's caught on.
