Yesterday, while we were putting away our Christmas stuff, Carolynn dropped a White Christmas snow globe and it broke. I was sad to see it go. I had that for a long time. I got it in an Avon catalog probably in 2000. Carolynn felt bad. It was an accident. A couple of weeks ago, we were in the Wal-Mart picking out one new ornament for the tree. We try to get a new one every year. We picked one out and Carolynn got it off the rack. About 3 seconds later, we heard a crash and there was Carolynn looking down at the broken ornament. Luckily, they had another one.
We had another tragedy here in the house today. We left for a while, only about an hour and a half, and when we came back, we discovered Gibby had chewed the hand off Catherine’s Sharpay doll. He had also chewed up the boots she was wearing, which actually belonged on Catherine’s Hannah Montana doll. When we leave, we make sure all the bedroom doors are closed, because when Gibby is mad, he chews stuff up. Gibby always is mad when we go somewhere and do not take him. I had taken Sharpay away from Catherine as punishment for not cleaning her room. I forgot it was in the living room. And yes, in case you were wondering, Gibby has lots of toys and chew stuff. He usually chews those when we are home.
Today is my last day unemployed. Tomorrow morning I begin a new career. Today we are cleaning up. I went over and used my dad’s printer (ours is not working) to print out chore charts. It seems to be helping. I wanted to be sure that it was up for this week since I will be gone. The children still have another week of vacation. The McDonald’s has David working 6 days a week now. It should be a pretty busy week.
I made tuna salad for sandwiches to take to work for my lunch. I hunted down my travel teacup to take too. I have my kettle ready to turn on in the morning. I have my clothes all picked out and my alarm all set.
This is going to be a new start. This is going to be good.
