-I have left the keys in the front door numerous times. The worst is when it is overnight and HF comes home to his sleeping wife and children and keys in the front door. He is never happy about that. This describes a typical night in our neighborhood: One night one of my neighbors was over hanging out and as I went to open the front door to see her out, a group of guys ran past our front door yelling, "!@$# You!" to who knows who. We were scared to death and she didn't venture home across the street for at least another hour.
-After washing my face, I used mouthwash on my face instead of my regular toner, which also happens to be blue. Let's just say my face was extra clean and rejuvinated.
-Our 2 year old went upstairs to our bedroom and picked up one of HF's two wallets and tried to shove it in the back of his diaper, just like daddy does (not in his diaper, but his pants. . . ) and became very frustrated that he couldn't get it to stick. It was one of those hilarious moments that maybe only the parents think are funny. Business idea: Diapers with back pockets?
-I've mentioned HF using more "coarse" language since entering the academy and becoming an officer. His latest? "Dumb Cuss". Let me use that in a sentence. After HF told me a work story, I asked, "Why did he do that?" HF said, "Because he's a dumb cuss that's why." I stopped him there and said, "Dumb Cuss? I've never heard anyone in my life say that before. Where did you pick that term up from? One of your work buddies?" Please tell me in the comments if any of you have used or regularly use that expression, or if you know where the expression comes from.
-CJ UPDATE!!! Sometimes you gotta praise Facebook and the things you can find out. CJ is currently claiming to be a reserve detective for HF's department (whatever that is. Don't think one can actually be a reserve detective). Wait. There's more. She is applying to the FBI to become a special agent. And that is a fact. I will keep you updated on anything else I find out.
-Once I mentioned to Happy Medic that if girls that chase Cops are called Badge Bunnies, then what do firemen call their "followers". He responded, "Kids". I still laugh about this.
-Another new pw blogger! Cathi at My Pinktastic Life.
-Our 2 year old has taken up headbanging as a hobby. He bangs his head in his crib at night, and now there is a dent on the wall above our bed where he banged his head. It actually put a dent in the wall! Either our wall is poorly built, or he has a really hard head. The most recent head banging damage is on a tile underneath one of our windows. It cracked the tile in half. The doctor said head banging is "mostly normal". Great. Take a look for yourself at the damage (I couldn't get a good picture of the dent in our bedroom, but this is the windowsill tile): He did this with his head!
-We are getting the house ready for Mama Mia's visit (My Italian mother-in-law). She will be here for Christmas and New Years. We have lots planned for her entertainment. This is the first year in our entire marriage that HF has had Christmas Eve through New Year's Day off! He's one lucky cuss. No. We are all lucky cusses.
