What We Do For Our Children

 I told you before how messes make me nuts. Anna knows this so she cleaned her room and found a spot for everything. We are tetris masters in this house. I have to say that she has always been a good cleaner and very good at organizing when she puts her mind to it.
So she got everything put away and then we went shopping.
 That was about $100 worth of stuff from 2 Goodwills and the dollar tree. Fine, we now are back to where we started with a messy room. But the good news is that her Grandmother said she could store everything in her garage. Bless the woman.
 And then this happened. I needed to go grocery shopping. Are you asking yourself how a round couch/chair has anything to do with food? Me too.
We had to pass a different Goodwill and Anna thought it would be a good idea to stop. She is really loving the second hand shopping.
She spotted the couch and started to giggle. She then started to clap and jump up and down. She told anyone that would listen that she had to have the couch for her first apartment. Me being the loving and encouraging mom said, "Holy shit Anna, that looks like something from a 70's porn." Yes, it spins. That did not deter her. She had one of the ladies that works there help her tear the tag off so that she could buy it. The lovely lady told her that maybe she could fix it up by buying some throw pills from Pier One. This made me think of Mark. Let me quote him, "If so, ask your Daughter to bring home a gay friend from school to help you. But not a Lesbian! Unless you want you house to look like Pier One just threw up!" And that lead me to think about 70's porn and this woman being a lesbian. Mark, stay out of my head.


This is Anna on the "WORLD'S BEST CHAIR." It has been scrubbed, fumigated, disinfected and is flaking slightly thanks to its new found cleanliness.  It wouldn't fit in grandma's garage. It is now living in the game room with the boys. DJ looked at it and said,"I'm not even going to ask what the white stain is."
Thanks for coming to see me and our new chair,
SonyaAnn

What, I said that? Hey, I'm pretty funny! The good thing is I forget most of what I write so I was able to laugh at it through virgin(ish) eyes. And I love being "in your head".
m.
p.s. That chair scares me!

I think that chair would be the coolest thing ever! But maybe that's my inner porn star speaking out of turn :)

Mark-All I could think was that the woman was a lesbian and wanted me. I couldn't wait to tell you and then to tell you to stay the hell out of my head.

D.Lynn-I've never seen Anna more excited about anything. That is her first piece of furniture ever. She said that she is keeping it forever. Dear lord.

Pier One, porn and Mark, seems like an interesting combination, though I would look at doing some kind of slip covering of that chair just because who knows what has happen on that thing......

SonyaAnn said...

Mamma has spoken-Everyone knows what happened on that couch! Ewwwwww!

Frances-You just don't want Mark in your head.
