So I Got Mad and Hit Him

I didn’t really hit Wade. He was replacing the pull-down attic stairs in our garage and got hit with a spring. He comes rushing in the house and I see a cloth on his head and blood on his face. We cleaned him up and determined stitches weren’t necessary – just a butterfly bandage and…

    Get well soon big boy!

    Ouch!!!!!! Rick would understand your pain – he tried to amputate his thumb this week with a brand new blade in his box cutter . . . .

Bart!

Today seemed to fly by. I was somewhat productive – I got the attic cleaned out and the donations dropped off at Good Will. Then I seemed to run out of time. Wade and I squeezed in a work out before hustling to Greenville for dinner with Nate and Michelle. We finished dinner just in…

4 out of 5 thieves choose Homelite

Holly has asked me to be a guest blogger tonight. So sit back and enjoy as I regale you with a story of deception, intrigue, and mostly absurdity. Yesterday we were robbed. But let’s start the story well before that happened so forget I already mentioned it. About 3 in the afternoon I received a…

    That’s insane!! Thank goodness for good neighbors and stupid criminals!

  • Johnna & NickJuly 29, 2007 - 12:07 pm

    NO WAY!!! You’re Nick’s hero, Wade!!! HAHA–so did the police catch the guy?

    AWESOME STORY!

    We have not heard anything from the police and don’t really expect to get our equipment back, but we decided the money investment we lost was well worth the good story.

  • CarolJuly 30, 2007 - 10:12 am

    Wow!!!!!! You’re now my hero as well, Wade. Very brave of you to confront a thief like that and demand your equipment back. I hope the police caught him – although I’m sure he’ll be back out on the streets and up to the same thing in short order. I’m getting visions of a Rotweiller puppy in your future . . . . . LOL

    You do beat all!! You would think after all of these years of being related to you that I wouldn’t be surprised at the crazy events of your life, but I always am. You crack me up. Congrats on a criminal well nabbed!

We’re Closed but Have One for Free

Wade and I both got our chores done around 10:30 last night. He had tried to motivate me earlier with the promise of a Chick-fil-A milkshake (my new favorite). I thought they closed at 10 so when I wasn’t done by then I gave up hope of a milkshake. I finally finished and Wade brought…

Shopping in the Dairy Barn

Wade and I spent the morning at my Grandmother’s house. She has recently moved into an assisted living facility and the family is starting to sort through her house, the barns, and shed. Wade and I decided to put our trailer to good use – we got lots of chairs (not sure what I will…

Family Time

Wade and I left work early on Friday and started the long (very long) drive to Paducah. We left work at lunch, loaded up Madison, and hooked up the trailer with the extra couch and hope chests we didn’t want to store. The drive would have been perfect if we could have avoided Atlanta. We…

The TV Saga Continues

I think the last time I posted about our television I said it was working. Then it stopped working again. Wade decided to take it to a repair shop and get a quote on fixing it. Then we would decide whether to buy a new one. Wade did not tell me that on the way…

Pitter Patter of New Shoes

I have never been a shoe person. I have narrow feet and most shoes don’t fit well. I like Chaco flip flops in the summer and slide on Merrell’s in the winter. Going back to work has forced me to wear “dress up” shoes. Then I realized ballet slippers are everywhere. I just bought a…
