The Paint Incident...

I have been meaning to post this and have been putting it off. Someone, who shall remain nameless, decided to play in craft paint one day while his mommy was taking a shower.
Usually that mommy waits until he is taking a nap but this day he decided not to nap. This paint happened to be in his closet and had been moved down lower where he could get to it. And he and the dog must have worked together to get in his closet since it is hard to open and there was a box in front of it. But somehow, they got it open.
Apparently at first, paint was just being dumped into the box it was in. That was until someone realized how much more fun it was to sling it all across his room onto his carpet. He and the dog then decided to play all in it. Just as his mommy was getting out of the shower, his daddy was coming in from work and screamed 'WHAT THE HELL?!?' as he was greeted by a blue and green spotted dog.

And that someone was caught with a bottle of yellow paint just in time. A few seconds later there would have been yellow paint slung everywhere too. Unfortunately, there are no pictures of what the dog looked like. However, as you see there are some incriminating photos of that little someone and his room. The funny thing is, he didnt even get in trouble for it. We were too busy trying to get them cleaned before they got it all over the house.

Luckily with the help of acetone nail polish remover, the paint is slowly coming up. He better be glad he isnt old enough to be put to work!

I won't be homeless! YAY!

We have been trying to find a house to rent for a while. Now that they are tranfering us to Jacksonvillethough, we started searching out there. It wasnt going too well at first either. Everything was either tiny or didn't allow pets. That wouldnt have been a big problem except someone just had to have a dog! I must admit although I cant stand having her some times, I have grown attached to her and I didnt want to get rid of her unless we absolutely had to. Well, as I was leaving town one day, I happened to turn down a random street just hoping to see a house for rent. That must have been my lucky day too! I saw this cute little house, nothing too special, and there was a for rent sign in the yard. I called the number and the girl actually had two houses for rent so I set up times to look at both of them. Well, the first house was the smallest thing I have ever been in. I dont think our furniture would even fit in that place and if it did, there is no way we could move around it. Plus it had absolutely no yard. An the bath room wasnt even 2 feet wide! NOOO THANK YOU!!! SO we went to the next one, the one I had originally called about. As soon as we walked in, I was pretty much sold. It was a HUGE laundry room and a HUGE kitchen. I havent lived in a place with a big kitchen since my parents house. I'm so tired of these little ass closet size kitchens. They asked how we liked it and if we had any questions. That's when I thought my stupid husband screwed it up for us. I hear the words, "What about pets?" come out of his mouth. I swear if looks could kill, he would be dead right now. He then proceeded to tell them that we had a Siberian Husky. The guy was so not happy about us having a dog either. Yep, that is it. We arent getting this house. I was so disappointed. Then a few days later, I got a call from the guy asking if he could drop off a form for me to fill out. I thought they just wanted to come by to see if we kept out house clean. Turns out, there really was a form. It was about the dog too. I figured if they had already ruled us out with the dog then they wouldnt have bothered bringing that by. The next night, the hubby was telling me about the guy calling the office that day to verify his employment stuff. And as we were talking about it, my phone started ringing. It was the guy! He called to tell me that they just finished going through the applications and we were at the top of their list. We got it! I'm so excited! I was really starting to stress out that we wouldnt have any where to live after this month. Thank god, I wont be homeless!
