See ya!

Well, we turned someone away from seeing the house today. The realtor called at 5:00pm and said they'd be by at 6:30pm. That's usually when we eat dinner, and since I figured I didn't want dinner smells in the house, we'd wait until after they left to eat. So I got the house all ready and got everybody outside so the house would remain in a ready state for more than 3 minutes. We all sat out there until 7:00pm, when I declared we were going inside to eat. Sure enough, the doorbell rang at 7:30pm. She started in by apologizing for being "a little late," which is when I cut her off and advised her she could come back at another time. We were in the middle of dinner and bedtime routines with our kids. Honestly, she could have called and said they were running late, and I would have been fine with that. But we are not so desparate to sell our house that we bend over backwards and let people treat us with disrespect. We are sellers in a buyers market, but we are still people with lives. Maybe we lost a sale, but we still have our self respect. :)

Let's pretend

Today Colby came up with a game: "Mom, let's pretend we're animals at the zoo and you're the guy who takes care of the animals and feeds us lunch."

Gee, that should be a real stretch of the imagination. :)

Burger King- BOO!

Burger King now features the Simpsons movie on their kid's meals, along with a generous warning on the bag: "This movie is rated PG-13. Some material may be unsuitable for children under the age of 13." So knowing that it's an unsuitable movie for children, they still go ahead and market it to....children. Fantastic.

Shouldn't be this hard

In this modern day and age, why should it be so hard to find Peter Pan birthday party supplies? I mean, you can find anything else under the sun including Tinkerbell and Captain Hook partyware, but poor Pete just doesn't get any respect.
