Today I had to go to the police to get some finger prints for the new company I will be working for. I had to get finger prints for the last company I worked for so I figured no big deal. I have policophobia! I am not sure what caused this. When I was little my parents would tease me and say if I cut the tag off my pillow the police would come and arrest me. You know the one that says do not remove upon penalty of law. One time they had a police officer friend of their's come over after I had removed the tag as a joke. Go ahead laugh! It is funny. I have also had the police come to my house twice and say that my car was involved in a violent crime. Only to find out that they read the license number wrong. So with fear and trepidation I went to get my finger prints done. I paid the meter for over an hour just in case so I won't get a ticket. It only took 15 minutes. I was nervous as I crossed the street. There was no light so I had to jay walk.(also afraid I would get a ticket for that) I don't know why I get so nervous. I have never received a ticket and have nothing to hide. Why is it the people who have nothing to hide get so nervous around police? I am just glad it is over. The police women who did the prints had to tell me to relax several times. I told her about the pillow thing. I made her laugh. I think I made her day.

We spent this past Saturday with Darla and Henry' having a yard sale. We did pretty well. Michael and Chris love going over there. As soon as I told Chris where we were going he got excited. Darla always has soda in her frig. I have never felt safe letting the kids ride their bikes in our neighborhood. So it is a real treat to get to ride bikes at Darla and Henry's. Last night we went to Taco Bell for dinner. Then we worked on Christopher's campaign posters. He is running for school Treasurer. I also made some cookies for Chris to give out. Look how nice the my $5.00 table came out. John did such a great job on it. I also found some cute new pillows for my sofa on clearance. They have a nice denim cover that comes off and are stuffed with feathers.

I guess I have been lost in my own little world. Sorry, it has been so long since I posted. Right now I am greatly disturbed. John is watching a Jeff Foxworthy special. Kenny Rogers and Jeff Foxworthy are holding hands and singing Islands in Stream. How scary is that? He is sitting on the sofa laughing his head off. Anyway, we have been working around the house. I found a solid oak dining table at an auction for $5.00. John has been refinishing it. I have been decorating my house. I have been working on Michael's room lately. He loves maps. I wanted to get him some map wallpaper but couldn't find any I liked. I also hate the idea of having to take down wallpaper some day. So I found a old atlas. I taped a bunch of maps together to make my own wall covering. I really liked the way it turned out. I covered the whole wall like wallpaper. It is attached only at the top of the wall so when we want to take it down it will be easy. The best part of it is it only cost one dollar for the atlas. I will post some pictures of it soon. John is now watching an infomercial. John should not be allowed to have the remote. He does keep me laughing.
