One of these things just doesn't belong...

I am happy to announce that #2 in the list (of uncool things that may have occured in my day) did NOT happen. And for THAT I am GRATEFUL! All of the other things were unpleasant, but #2 would've scarred me. Just so you know, here are the players in the incidents mentioned. Sam tried to slide down the windshield of the van. Wyatt Henry shattered the van window while mowing the law. Lizzie and Ben (who can't swim) were in the lake and then blamed me for it. (That's a story for another day) I will at least give Ben credit for donning a life vest before getting in the lake. Even if it was much too big. The washing machine is indeed malfunctioning so I do have to stand outside and hold the hose while it drains.

But look now, at least I'm not carrying all the laundry down to the lake and banging rocks on it. Let's keep it in perspective, right? Also, Ben and Lizzie didn't drown or get bitten by a water moccasin, Sam didn't crash through the windshield and the van window is now fixed. Wyatt H was very sad about the whole window thing and helped me clean all the glass out of the van. He even suggested that we might as well clean the van out while we were cleaning the glass out, so there you go! Our friends are very understanding and offered us a rain check on cooking out and swimming. AND, since nobody picked #2, I think I'll let everyone buy me coffee, So I'm good!

So when do we go? For coffee that swimming in the lake with too-big life preservers. ;)
