Lessons from my parents

So, this is something I received by e-mail, not original to me...although it sounds like my family! :)
25 REASONS I OWE MY PARENTS

1. My parents taught me TO APPRECIATE A JOB WELL DONE.
"If you're going to kill each other, do it outside. I just finished cleaning."

2. My parents taught me RELIGION.
"You better pray that will come out of the carpet."

3. My parents taught me about TIME TRAVEL.
"If you don't straighten up, I'm going to knock you into the middle of next week!"

4. My parents taught me LOGIC.
"Because I said so, that's why."

5. My parents taught me MORE LOGIC.
"If you fall out of that swing and break your neck, you're not going to the store with me."

6. My parents taught me FORESIGHT.
"Make sure you wear clean underwear, in case you're in an accident."

7. My parents taught me IRONY.
"Keep crying, and I'll give you something to cry about."

8. My parents taught me about the science of OSMO…

April Recap

Hello, Friends!
I did not fall off the face of the earth, but maybe just the blogosphere for a bit.
So much has happened since my last post. Let me update you a bit.
On April 10, my only brother Ken got married. All three of us were in the wedding along with my sister-in-law from Tim's side of the family and my niece. Jonathan was so happy because not only were my parents there, but Tim's parents were there also. Jonathan loved that we all stayed in a hotel and that he got to swim in the pool. Here are a few photos from the wedding:


Then, Jonathan turned 9 this year on April 15. So hard to believe that time goes so quickly! Since we had just spent a pretty penny for all of the wedding stuff, we ended up just having a small party with Jonathan and two of his friends at Chuck E. Cheese in Roanoke.


While we were in Roanoke, we stopped at Krispy Kreme and let the boys pick out their doughnuts for breakfast the next day. Of course they opted to eat a hot one that night.


We ha…

A little April foolin'

Sooooooo, if you know me, I cannot let April 1 go by without fooling someone...
I posted this on our copier in our office (note: I stole this idea from someone else).
I e-mailed my co workers and told them that someone had upgraded our copier while they were out, and they left instructions. When my co-worker "K" came back, she needed to make a copy and was standing at the machine saying her name. The more she said it the louder she got. She said, "It's not working." So I told her she needed to follow all of the steps...and she did...a few times.
So she said, "I feel funny talking to a copier." Since she couldn't get the "voice recognition" to work, she gave up and did it the old way.
Meanwhile, another co-worker and I were in tears in my cubicle from laughing so hard. He finally told her "April Fools!" and we got beat, but lived to tell about it!
