The Fly Lived

Yesterday was an active day. Lee tried to kill a fly with his tennis shoe. The window behind the fly exploded. Ron screamed "nooooooo"! I ran down the hall toward the mayhem. Lee hid behind the door. Cassie chased after Lee. Ron ran out of the room and immediately started praying loudly. (I think he was thrilled to finally have something exciting to talk to God about, OR he was trying to tell his story before Lee got a chance to pray). Everyone watched me out of the corner of their eyes. I was speechless. I sat down abruptly on the bed and stared at the wild outdoors, which was no longer distanced from my bedroom by glass. (Yeah, I know there's a joke about the "wild indoors" somewhere ... ) I think the speechlessness disturbed the kids more than anything. This may be the first time they've seen me truly speechless. Its rather rare. (Note to my husband: QUIT LAUGHING :)

We didn't punish him (or them) because it really was an accident. We just called the local glass company. They came out today. I KNEW they were coming out today. I didn't know they were coming out at the crack of dawn without calling first. The first I heard of it was Lee (age 4) running into our bedroom and announcing "there's a man I don't know at the door". He repeats this sentence often for the drama. My husband and I look at each other. He vaults to his feet and mutters "get dressed, its got to be the glass guy" (or something very similiar). I couldn't hear him because I was looking for clothes. Then the phone rings. Its the glass guy. From our driveway. I'm not kidding.


Ohhh....what a pain!!! That would be so freaky having that window shattered for the whole night. At least it's fixed, right? :)

What I wouldn't give to be a fly on the wall in your house. (I might even land on the windows sometimes - just for excitement.)

Other times you can wait around all day for those people to show up. Good grief, how dumb is that to get there so early!

And your poor boys! How funny that the kids started praying. At least it shows that he knows where to go on time of trouble!

This is good that people can receive the mortgage loans moreover, it opens new chances.
