Stop Mocking Me

I've had it. I've been mocked. I've been teased. I've been tormented. I'm not taking it any more. Every time I walk in Alexis' room, Humpty Dumpty laughs at me. The old lady who lived in a shoe mutters under her breath. The fork and the spoon chant "still not done, still not done, still not done". Apparently, it's not enough that only one of the murals is complete. Apparently, the fact that there is a sky on one side of the room, but not the other, is a problem. Apparently, I can't start painting the words to the nursery rhymes then leave it unfinished. I do solemnly swear that I will finish painting Alexis room within the next 48 hours. If I don't, I shall arm every character with a wet noodle and stand in the center of the room as they all lash me.

Hot and Random

1. Despite the fact that I heard Demetrius tell me, the thermometer in my car told me, and the fact that I could FEEL it for myself, Alexis proceeded to tell me that it's hot about 4,000 times today. Thanks, kiddo!

2. The tiny aquarium has it's overpriced fish now. Actually, it has two overpriced fish. We really need some sort of mental help.

3. I had the most bizarre lunch experience of all time today. It was one of those things where you had to be there to fully understand just how weird the whole thing was, but I will say that I've never seen so many people quit and get fired in such rapid successsion in my life. The manager dude locked the place when it was down to just him then proceeded to call the owner to say that he quit, too. We still sat around and ate our food.

4. Alexis just got yelled at by Daddy for getting into things. She proceeded to toddle over to me, in tears, pointing at Daddy and saying "Bad Daddy". She is so definately the smartest kid of all time.

5. Here's another old video that demonstrates just exactly why Alexis gets whatever she wants. Whenever she wants it. BTW, she's trying to sign it as she says it, but didn't have the manual dexterity at the time. She's pretty close these days.

Is that the Sale Price? Including Decorator Discounts?

That funny chick over at Precarious Tomato already blogged about this, but I can't seem to get it out of my head. So I feel the need to share with all my bestest internet friends. This house is just a little bit too far away for us to go look at in person, but seriously, the thought did cross my mind. Make sure you look at all of the pictures. You won't be sorry. Well, actually you might be sorry. Most likely you'll just be speechless and very, very confused.
