I just had to share a few things that have happened in the last 24 hrs. or so that have made me laugh pretty hard:
1. A few days ago I lost one of my diamond earrings. I got them as a Christmas present from Scott a few years ago, and I have not had them out since that very day. Well, the other day I was drying my hair and noticed one was gone. :( I looked everywhere and found the back in bed, so while I have yet to find the earring, I know it is in this house. Chances are it will show up somewhere in 10yrs or so! ha! Anyways, last night I got in bed and stuck my hand under my pillow to adjust it and felt something small and hard...MY EARRING...I was SURE of it. I grabbed it and ran to the other room to turn on the light. I turn on the light and what am I holding???....a tortilla chip crumb the exact size of my earring! aahhhahahaha! Abby was eating in our bed a few days ago, and I guess she left that behind for me. So, as I am standing there in the pitch black house, holding a crumb, I got so tickled by what was going on, I could NOT stop laughing. I laughed for a good 10min., I bet. Oh, such is life......and I still have not found the earring! haha!
2. Yesterday, Scott walked into the kitchen and saw that the vent had grabbed one of Abby's balloons and it was hovering in mid air, since the heat was on. He yells for Abby to come and see. She comes over and quickly goes to get all the other balloons in the house (we always have balloons, it has been Abby's toy of choice for almost 3yrs. now-ha!). So, there they both stand witht the balloons floating above the vent and Scott says to Abby, ''wow, look...it's MAGIC!" Abby looks at him dead serious (almost with pity, as in, how could Dad be so dumb) and says, 'no, it's not, Dad, it's because of the air!' hahahaha!
3. And, one last story. The girls and I were out last week a day or so after the winter storm and the sidewalks were still SO slick. We saw a man and his 2 teenage daughters walking out of the restaurant. The girls went and got in the car and he was on his way down to the store. Well, he hits the first slick spot and down he goes. Not hard, just on his butt, but enough to make me stop and ask if he's okay. He is laughing and says, 'yes, I'm fine...I bet my girls are just LOVING this.' Sure enough, I look over and there sits his 2 daughters in the warm car, laughing HYSTERICALLY at him!! I had to start laughing with them, because I could just see Abby and Olivia doing this to Scott, and I could just see me and my sister being the same way if we saw my Dad bite the dust like that-ha! This was almost a week ago and Abby still mentions the guy that slipped and fell EVERY day! haha!
