2 Girls and their toolbelts

3 of the Pack went with HH to work yesterday (yay for homeschooling!!!). Little Brother, Mouth, and Blue Eyes. It was a long, quiet day here at our little nest :P Beans and Baby Sister were very out of sorts. And lonely. And bored. It was a looooonnnngggg day.

Made me think of the near future, as the Pack grow up and fly away from our little nest. Things seem off balance when we are missing even 1 of the Pack for a single day. It will be a huge adjustment when they start flying away. I fully expect to be getting a full time job. The quietness will drive me crazy!!

Mouth and Blue Eyes have been telling me about their day working with HH... THEY BOTH GOT TO WEAR TOOLBELTS!!!! This was a HUGE deal I guess. I know, they are weird. The funniest part of their excitement for wearing toolbelts? They were both so very happy that they wore cute outfits. "The toolbelts looked SO CUTE with our outfits mom!!!!" And they had to compliment each other on how cute they looked with their toolbelts. Multiple times. Thru out the day. On the jobsite. I guess (hope?) the guys got a kick out of the two of them :)

SO yesterday. while working with HH. Mouth walked to the trailer to get a pliers so she could take some electrical do-dad off the wall. There was an extension cord laying on the ground. She saw the cord. She knew it was there. But Mouth, being Mouth, tripped on the cord. And of course had to get her feet all tangled up in said cord. And stagger around and trip and finally did a barrel roll down a hill, getting all the more tangled up in the cord. When Mouth finally came to a stop. At the bottom of the hill. She yells, "YEP!! I'm fine! Everything is good here!!!" The guys just shook their heads, smiled and kept working. And Little Brother just looked at the guys, rolled his eyes and shook his head, as if to say, " girls. good grief."

*Fun Fact? Little Brother thinks he has extensive knowledge and experience with all things that have to deal with girls and therefore has the right to roll his eyes, shake his head and let out exasperated sighs when his sisters perform acts like the above mentioned...

My girls are becoming quiet skilled in the construction department. Beans is putting cedar shakes on the house right now. Baby Sister is putting polyurethane on the many many feet of tongue and groove knotty pine. Mouth and Blue Eyes and I will get the addition cleaned out today and hopefully get the rock on the walls. Before HH gets home tonight! We shall see how this works out.

I saw it all! Beans just THREW herself off the stepstool!!!!(she's putting cedar shakes on the house.) She didn't lose her balance, stagger around, arms flailing in all directions. Nope. She threw herself off. It definantly looked planned, premeditated you could say. ;) lol :D *no injuries, she landed on her butt. and sat there and laughed :) *

I had a really long, funny, humorous, darn right witty blog post to post. Then I left the computer whilst I was chatting on the phone. I guess a smart person would click that little "SAVE NOW" button on the bottom of the page. Cuz it would be a crying shame to lose a full blown funny, humorous, darn right witty blog post. I have never claimed to be smart.

*Fun Fact? losing a full blown funny, humorous, darn right witty blog post to cyber space does not put me in a good mood. I may stomp my feet (if I wasn't a cripple and stomping my feet would put me in a black hole of pain and tears and wailing), grab my hair, cry, scream, yell, shut my computer screen, vow to never blog again... just a little tid bit of information that you may find interesting for those of you who think I am calm, cool and collected. ;)

Beans (who is still putting shakes up on the house) came in, annoyed, growling about the staple gun. I guess the wall she is working on now has 'buffalo board' as sheeting. She informs me that the staples are smashing thru the shakes AND the buffalo board. She grabs a drink of water, then goes back outside. Pretty soon I hear the air compressor going and the staple gun shooting staples again. Smart, commonsensical girl that she is, she monkeys with the air compressor air pressure thingy magigy and gets it working.

Whos kid is she?

Sounded to me like a perfect excuse to wait for HH to get home and show off his air compressor wisdom and knowledge and wow us all with his PSI prowess.

Gotta love that girl. I know HH will. :)

Did you know you can get Bailey's Irish Cream coffee creamer? yumyum!! and its non-alcoholic. But it SAYS, "Bailey's Irish Cream" on it and it looks and sounds absolutely sinful. And I have a horrible affection for things that look and sound absolutely sinful, when there is actually nothing absolutely sinful about them.

Weird? I know.
