I feel like I’m so behind!
There’s so much I’ve been meaning to tell you. Things like…
How my friend Carrie won the tickets to the Monster Jam truck show I gave away on the blog so we decided to grab dinner beforehand and then sit together with all our kids (5 boys and 1 girl). And even though the boys were in hog heaven (including Lazy Dad) and even though my daughter thought the show was “awesome!” Carrie and I? Well, we were thinking of all the things we COULD have been doing instead. Like, going to a movie, or eating dessert, or having a massage. Oh and we were laughing. We did that a lot.
Let’s just say Monster truck shows aren’t our thing.
And let’s also say, no matter how gorgeous you are, ear plugs are not fashionable.
I’ve also been meaning to tell you about the super fun murder mystery dinner train ride our fabulous friend Charlotte treated us to!
And how some of the humor was a bit, shall we say, “off color.” And how Lazy Dad being a Pastor and all had to be protected from the women actors who were a bit, shall we say, “off color.”
Finally at the end of the evening. The actors came around and took pictures of us and one of the women once again was a bit, shall we say, “off color” so when she said to Lazy Dad, “hold my leg” as we posed for a picture, Lazy Dad just closed his eyes and said, “I can’t! I can’t!” Which kind of made them think he was weird. So I said, “Ladies! He’s a man of the cloth! He’s a Pastor!” And so that got him out of holding her leg in this picture.
Speaking of Lazy Dad, I’ve ALSO been meaning to tell you about how he’s a camera hog. And a microphone hog. And a attention seeker hog.
He was interviewed by all five TV stations in the Toledo area a few weekends ago when he ran a business expo event for the Holland/Springfield Chamber of Commerce.
Give that man a microphone, a crowd and a TV station and he’s a happy, happy man.
Oh! But I didn’t tell you about the horror of watching it on the news later…..
Lazy Dad and I tuned in to one of the TV stations to watch their report that night. And you know how when the news reports on an event they usually pan the event or even show 2 second clips of the event?
Well this particular TV station did NOT do that.
Instead, much to my dismay, they showed about a 10 second video of me standing in front of our booth talking to our people behind the booth and all the while I’m scratching the side of my face like some FREAK! Even Lazy Dad was like, “why are you clawing at your face the whole time?” I said, “I don’t know! I didn’t even realize I was doing it!!”
Then, THEN! I start to walk away and you see my entire REAR END. I literally screamed in horror and covered my eyes when I saw it on the news!
BUT! Just as I was about to recover from my heart attack, they cut to Lazy Dad being interviewed. And, well, how do I say this nicely…. Lazy Dad’s a bit “light” up top. And by light, I mean, there was a lot of LIGHT on the top of his head as they interviewed him. So when they cut to him being interviewed Lazy Dad screamed in horror and covered his eyes.
Needless to say we are both staying as far away from TV news reporters as possible these days.
And we are looking into therapy.
On a much lighter and happier note, I’ve been meaning to tell you about the fun reunion we had with some of our dear sweet friends from Bible College this last weekend when we were in Tennessee.
We had so much fun catching up and seeing each other’s children.
And if you are wondering why the children are holding GINORMOUS Hershey candy bars it’s because our friend Cindy asked each child around the table, “Which one of your mom and dad’s Tennessee friends is your FAVORITE?”
Some of the kids said she was, but some of them pointed to others. After all of them had decided which one was their favorite, she said, “Okay! Each of you who said I was your favorite gets one of these!” And she passed out one at a time these huge Hershey bars! All of a sudden those that had chosen someone else as their favorite switched their favorites to her so they could get a candy bar too!
Which was her master plan all along.
She buys children’s love.
She’s a master of it.
Okay! I think we’re all caught up!
Now it’s back to the deep, dark basement for me. I’m ALMOST done going through every tub and pile and nook and cranny of it. Let’s just hope people want to come look at our house after all this work. But even if they don’t, my house as never been more organized and looked better! *house for sale bonus!*
