I forgot to say how we would spend Christopher's birthday. Tonight we will eat at Taco Bell. It's his favorite. Then we will go shopping for video games. We will end the evening watching the Lost episode I recorded.

Happy Birthday Chris

Happy 14th birthday Chris. I love you baby. I can't believe my baby is fourteen. I thought this picture captures Chris' personality real well. He is a great kid and a lot of fun to hang around with. Chris and John often have foam dart battles with their guns. I had opened the attic to get something. Chris took full advantage and used the attic in their game.

Fire Caulking what was I thinking!

There is a reason that John looks like this everyday. John told me that they needed someone to do fire caulking at his job. He told me the lady that usually does it couldn't be found. Her name is Cricket. How cruel are her parents. Anyway, I thought if she could do it surely I could. So, John talked to his boss. The boss told him to let me try it out first and then he would hire me if I could do the work. He is a very very wise man! John described the job like cake decorating. You just climb the ladder (I know you don't use a ladder when cake decorating for all you smart alacks) ,squirt the caulk around the hole, and take your spatula and spread it around till it is smooth. Sounds simple enough right. So I drive an hour and twenty minutes to get to the job site. When I got there I met up with John and his boss Chief. Those who know me well know about Chief. I will just leave it at that. They proceeded to confuse me by telling what a fire wall is and a bunch of other junk. All of which I just nodded my head and acted like I understood. Then John carried my ladder to the spot where I would work. Oh, I forgot to tell you about my gorgeous outfit. Old jeans, John's tee shirt, a hard hat(my hair stuffed up inside I felt like a boy) , and work boots. I climbed up the eight foot ladder and realized how short I am. I would need a taller ladder. Great more of a ladder to move around. I have to say I hate hard hats. They make your head taller so you do hit things. If I didn't have the stupid thing on I wouldn't run into stuff near as much. Between the hat, the heat (no air conditioning),the horrible talk of the men around me, and my knee killing me from going up and down the ladder I quit after two hours. Poor John had to listen to me whine longer that I actually worked! My friends all had to listen to me too. Sorry about that. So my career as a fire caulking girl is officially over. No, I didn't take a picture of my outfit. Some memories need to be forgotten. The moral of this story there is a reason why Cricket couldn't be found and my husband is an amazing man!

Today John is working. I sure wish he was home. The kids and I watched Charlotte's Web and ate taco salad. Chris and I made some little Easter cakes for my Sunday school class. It was a lot of fun.

So far we have had three people look at our house. Hopefully one will make us a nice offer. Everyone has said how neat and organized the house looks. It is good to here because at 5:30 in the morning it gets annoying straightening it up before I leave. I have to say John and the boys have been a great help. Pray that we will get an offer soon.

Getting the house ready

We have been very busy this weekend getting the house ready. We have not had anyone look at it yet. Hopefully soon we will. We have been taking advantage of the time to get things done. We woke up on Friday at 6:00 to get started and worked till about seven that evening. John stayed home from church today to get more done. We worked till about seven this evening. Last night I made a cake for Tim and Evelyn. Tim helped us with some dry wall in our bathroom. What a blessing that was. Pray for us as we continue to work on things. Also, pray for the sale of our house if it is the Lord's will.
