Mi Casa es Calor!


Yes, this is a box of rocks. Why? How can it possibly be blog worthy?

Well, after three visits from the heating guy in three days, THESE are the cause of my not having any heat! It seems little fingers have been shoving these down the exhaust for the furnace. The exhaust clogs up and the furnace won't kick on. Which is a good thing, you know the whole CO2 thing.

I only have one child whose hand is small enough to shove these rocks far enough into tube to cause a problem. I think she might get these in her stocking for Christmas.

Being your neighbor who lives on the side of your house where your dryer vent is... I have a "hunch" that you may want to check that vent as well! LOL

So this explains why in your email this morning you mentioned that the next time I see you there would be one less kid!!!!!Bet I know which little hand you are talking about!

Does this mean your blogger ID will now say Mom to 4 Daughter of the King??? YIKES!

I know a couple of little boys who would have been right there helping out if we lived next door:) There's not much in our house that hasn't had rocks or sand stuck in it...

I'm sure there is a perfectly good explanation.
"She" must have had been testing a theory to explain to you, but had a serious miscalculation to remedy first.
After all, your gorgeous and brilliant children would never do anything less than genius level... right???

(now aren't you glad I don't live next door... I could fill you kids will all sort of excuses... hehehe)
