Can You Stop The Rain?

My niece, Sylvie(7), gets here today! She's flying down by herself from Oklahoma and will be here for 3 weeks. I can't wait to have her around. She lived with us for around 6 months awhile back and I really miss her!

We'd planned on having pizza tonight and then swimming but it's been raining off and on for the last few hours. I hope it stops soon. The Neighborgirls are here now so the boys are amused and not chirping at me every 5 minutes for something to do.

Sweety was changing his oil in the driveway yesterday. He just jacks up his car and then scoots under it. The jack fell and his car came crashing down - I thought his head was going to be popped like a grape but luckily, he's unscathed. There was a red mark on his back and chest where he got sqooshed but no major damage. When it happened I was shocked and just kind of gasped and he mentioned later that if it had hurt him that I'd have been useless. I told him I was waiting for that adrenaline rush that people get in emergencies so I could lift the car off of him but it didn't come. I'm going to get him some of those ramp things that he can drive his car up on so he can safely tinker under the car. I would really hate to step into the garage someday and find him mashed to death under the Civic.

If I go into the bathroom ONE MORE TIME and there is pee on the toilet seat! I will set the toilet on fire! Agh. Yuck.

We're kicking around the idea of trading my car (honda pilot, suv thing) in for something smaller that gets better gas mileage. We're at odds now over how many doors it needs to have. I want to get a 2 door something and Sweety said we need 4 doors because of the kids. How hard is it to flip up the front seat for them to get in? I figure, I only pick them up from school twice a week so we can go through the inconvenience of lifting up the seats a couple of times a week.

Tiny dog is such an unloyal little bitch. All the kids just came through the living room and she just launched off my lap to go follow them. Stupid dog, doesn't she know they're not going to let her into the bedroom? Ah, here she is back again, looking for some love...


BB(11) got his braces yesterday and he's really hating the fact that he must brush/floss after he eats anything. The EW didn't go to the office while he was getting them on and neither did I. LB(9) and I elected to stay at home and be dazzled by his braces once they were on. BB has always grouched about how crooked his teeth are and now that the braces are on he hasn't stopped grouching about wearing braces. If you were going to hang him with an old rope he'd ask for a new one, I swear.

GEEZ!! That is so scary about Sweety!!!

I agree-get the 4 doors. It may not seem like a big deal-but I bet you anything it begins to annoy you

The Honda Civic hybrids are awesome!

I just really like the look of some of the 2 door cars. I've been eyeballing the Honda Accord Coupe. But I have a feeling that I will end up in a 4 door Civic.

OMG!!! You really don't know how lucky he was! I am a EX EMT/FireChief and this happened in our area and the guy was crushed to death. Didn't mean to scare you but never let hubby under his car unless it is blocked up and secure. Unless he has good life insurance!! LOL

That thing with the car sounds HORRENDOUS! I hope you do get some ramps, my dear...Sweety must have a gyardian angel looking out for him....Thank You Oh Lord!

I guess Tiny Dog is a little 'Love Slut', isn't she? (lol) But soooo cute!

Flossing is a real bear and I'll bet you he will do it every three days if he can get away with it. You may want to get him one of those Water Piks and he should be fine. Got mine for $39.95 at Target. He can be done in about a minute and have healthier gums too.

Get a two door with a roof rack, and tie them down for the ride home. Kids today don't get fresh air like we used to plus I am sure the thrill will appeal to them, at first anyway.

BB is learning first hand what they meant when they said be careful what you wish for...

I would be very careful about getting under a jacked car. It could have killed him. I think if you want to keep him around for a while you might want to just give him the twenty bucks to get his oil changed some place or go have it done yourself on the days you have it. By the way, if he does get injured, you can claim it under your comp and collision.

Sweety is soo lucky. It seems we hears stores all of the time of people being crushed underneath cars that they are working on.

I don't think that you need a mommobile but 4-door cars are nice wen kids are around. You never know how much you get into and out of the car until you have to a two door.

Mike said...

I am glad that your husband is okay...(I just can't say sweety...sorry). That is a very scary prospect. I try to stay out from under cars. It's just never a good place to be.

The Phosgene Kid said...

Jeez - get sweety some jack stands or a coupon for the local "We be Oil n' Shit." The car jack is only meant for changing tires and even then you are taking a big risk.

yep, it's me.... said...

lifts, yes, lifts.
this can happen,
head popping like a grape - OMG - too descriptive.
