Mom has been really busy at work so I haven't been posting as much as I want to. (Don't ask why Mom being busy at work messes with when I post since I post when she's at work.) Mom's crafty stuff will be posted hopefully soon. She moved to camera this weekend to put it in a spot where it would be safe and out of the way of paint and nails and hammers and stuff and now nobody knows where that spot is (I do, but I'm not telling!!).
So since Mom hasn't taken the pictures yet, I'm telling a very funny story about her today. Be prepared to roll on the floor laughing. Our house is very old. The 2 bedroom doors and the bathroom door all have the old style of doorknobs with the pretty decorative plate thingy. Mom knew Dad had taken the plate things outside to get some paint off of them. She went to the bathroom and then she went to open the door, there was no door knob. Mom said she cussed for awhile and then started trying to figure out how in the world she was going to get out. Dad was in the back yard by the garage which is on the other side of the house from the bathroom and he had the grinder going. Even if she opened the window and started yelling for him, he wouldn't have heard. She then pictured herself yelling and the neighbors coming out to see what's going on and asking them to tell her husband she's locked in the bathroom. Luckily, as a kid Mom watched that tv show where the guy made things out of stuff laying around to save the day. His name is MacGyver (had to look that spelling up). Mom started looking around the bathroom for something to help her and found a comb with a long handle and stuck the handle in the hole and sure enough, it worked. The comb didn't break like she was sure it was going to. Mom went outside to tell Dad what just happened and try to make him feel guilty for not telling her he took the doorknobs. Mom said she had to MacGyver her way out of the bathroom and instead of telling Mom he was sorry and making her feel better, Dad started laughing. All night long we had to hear Mom say we had to be nice to her because she was locked in the bathroom and had to MacGyver her way out. Every time she brought it up we all laughed at her. Dad said he told Mom he was cleaning the plates so she should have known the knobs were gone. Mom pointed out that every other time he'd messed with the plates, he put the knobs back on. Dad put the knobs back on even though the plates aren't ready to be put back on yet. Mom decided she's going to start carrying her cellphone, a screwdriver and some pliers with her when she goes to the bathroom. I'd feel sorry for her if it wasn't so hilarious!!!
Hope everybody had a great weekend!
