Here's what my front yard looked like today when I looked out of the living room window:
When we had the Christmas tree up for a few days, I looked at the ornaments and realized that we were missing some of the boys' ornaments that had been given to them, mostly by CH's parents. I went downstairs and looked through the endless sea of tubs we have, but they weren't there. I looked in the cabinets in the man cave; they weren't there either. We decided that either they had accidentally been thrown away, or would eventually show up. Before OS went back to college, he cleaned out a closet in the man cave. Guess what he found? They were in a box, along with a very sticky candy cane. One of MS' ornaments had broken, but I just super-glued that baby back together, and it was as good as new. And, as an added bonus, CH found a clothes hamper that had 4 pairs of my shoes in it! I cleaned them off, and they're ready to go! It's perfect, because a couple of pairs are black and one pair is brown, and I wanted to get some more black and brown shoes that aren't slip-on. PERFECT! And, they still fit! Maybe with the money I just saved, CH can get a surprise for me!
And, just to totally and completely randomize this post, here's a commercial that cracks me up:
So typical of little boys!
