Getting back to normal

If you read my twitter, you know we sent middle child off to college this week. I read some bloggers posting this week about sending their kindergartners off to school for the first time. Trust me, this is way harder. Thank goodness for e-mail and cell phones. lol Already had a midnight call about a computer that wouldn't reboot and an English paper that was "trapped" inside; waiting to be printed. Youngest child is very happy to have her own room, again.

I need to get "back to work", though. I have many projects to finish, both for work and for home. Lot's of new things coming to the shop. This month has been so hectic, I haven't had any time to sit down and work on them. I'm also going to have some giveaways and finally get my next blog going - Blog Candy Blog.

Stay tuned. More to come.

Strange game.

In our house, we have a strange little game we play. One Christmas I found an old Barbie head, leftover from one of the girls. Somehow, it ended up as an ornament on the tree. Well, after Christmas was over, someone decided it would be fun to hide the doll head in the refrigerator for someone else to find. It became a game to see how long it took to find because no one was allowed to actually "search" for it.

Sometime ago, it was forgotten. Well, last week, when I was cleaning out the fridge, I found it, wayyyy back on the shelf behind some long forgotten pickles or something. So, I left it in the front of the shelf, just to see if the girls would pick it up again. And then, I forgot about it, again.

So, yesterday, I needed some eggs for something and this is what I found.

Scared the crap out of me. I thought it was a mouse. The girls did get a kick out of it as I went around the house with a, "Did you do this?". The culprit? My husband. He said it had been in there for a week - yeah, that's how often I actually cooked this week, lol.

She's back in the freezer, now. Waiting for her next victim.

Anybody else have any weird games you play in your house? ;)
