Funny Signs

I came across these signs on the Internet this morning and they made me laugh. Hope they make you smile too!

Do you think police are giving out a lot of tickets for not stopping here?

I'm glad my children don't play here!

A Little Bit of History

Here's a little bit of history you probably didn't know about...

The second civil war started when the small states in Europe were fighting the big one. Then it moved over to Asia and Japan bombed Pearl harbor, so the US entered the war and bombed Nagasaki. Then Japan surrendered on a boat. And Canada signed in the wrong place.

This account was given by 6 year old. I heard him saying this to his friend yesterday morning. I think it may have something to do with our visit to Pearl Harbor while we were in Hawaii last week.

The other day my 8 year old was teasing my 6 year old. Finally my 6 year old had enough and said, "Stop it! I'm getting annoying!"

Like the good mom that I am, I chuckled. I'm pretty sure he meant to say that he was getting annoyed, but I didn't say anything.

In other news, I finally did it. I got my hair cut. 11.5 inches. I donated it to locks of love which is great because I found a swanky salon that gives a free hair cut when you donate your hair. I did the same thing 5 years ago. A $50 haircut for free! Well kinda for free. I have to wait another 5 years to get another free hair cut.

I Still Can't Figure It Out

My bluetooth. I know it's only one button. But I can't figure it out. I hung up on my sister today. Twice. And I ignored my husband's call. When I finally pressed the button I heard it ringing. I'm sure I hung up on someone else in my phone book. So sorry.

Now for my lame excuse for not being here. I just got back from Hawaii. I went with my husband and kids for 7 days. We met my husband's family there for 4 days. They traveled from Japan. I'll try to post some pics later. Not that anyone really wants to see me in a bathing suit, so I might just post some pics of the kids.

I know that's only 7 or 8 days accounted for. I also hurt my back. I was out of commission for almost a month. I was taking so much medicine and had two shots in my spine. You know someone is in a lot of pain when getting a needle inserted into her spine sounds like a good idea. And the second shot seemed to have done the trick. Oh, I also got a fashionable back brace. It's about 2 feet long and fits like a sharp corset. I heard you will be able to purchase one for yourself this fall at Nordstrom's.
