All I can say is I can't move. We've managed to paint our rental...I have paint in places I dare not mention. I can't lift my arms above my shoulders. But...the blasted rental property is about to go back up...and hopefully will be re-rented soon. Dust buffalos galore! And to top it off...we had our first scorpion in the house. I've lived in Arizona for more than 20 years and have never had a live one in the house. Yep...live and little - the worst kind. Being DEATHLY afraid of them...I put Maddie on her bed just in case it decided to run through the house, put a glass bowl over it...and then got my hairspray. Yeah...hairspray...to make them move less quickly...better yet...not at all. And there it laid stuck to the floor for 2 hours until George got home and handled the rest. Oh yes...I also put a REALLY heavy book on the bowl for good measure. YUCK!!!!!!!!!
We managed to squeeze in some dress-up time and fun with her pup Angus. And then ended our day like any other lately...playing back to back games of Maddie's "favorite game" Hungry Hippos. She squeels with delight. We play it about 5 times nightly. It's the whole "jungle" business alive and well. Her old "favorite song" Tom Dooley has been put to rest and replaced by "Keep Trying" by Barney. All I can say is that I just didn't want that scorpion to "keep trying".
