Well our computer is getting old. Down to it's last legs. Larry has been having to clean it out over and over. So he has taken off my "picture stuff". So at the moment I am unable to post any pics to show off. We hope to get a computer soon. We'll see. So please bare with me and I will let you know when I have new pics posted.

Missing teeth

Out little man is growing up so fast! He has two loose teeth! Both in the front, one on top and one on the bottom. The top one is sooooo loose! I bet he'll lose it in the next few days!

Mylan got this toy in an Arby's kids meal. It is a fake spilled milkshake. You know, kind of like the rubber barf. Well we keep placing the spilled milkshake is various places around the house. Then we fuss at each other to clean up our mess of spilled milkshake. Silly, I know, but we have fun!

One time I found a big bug that was dead and in perfect condition (It wasn't squished). So I put the icky bug in a little plastic bag. It became a game to us by trying to scare each other by placing it in various places like in a coat pocket, in the bed under the pillow or under the covers or in bathroom drawers! It was so fun because there was a few times that it really did freak me out!

Gotta love it!

The "R" Word

The word "retirement" has sure been coming up a lot lately at work. I don't like it. It's become a bad word to me. Why is retirement a bad word? Because it is my boss who is talking about it. This year he turned 66. He is the BEST boss I have ever had! I mean, sure we get on each others nerves occasionally, but that's to be expected. I am his only full time employee so the poor guy is stuck with me all week long! I have been there 4 years now. That's the longest I have been at any dental office. My co-worker has been there for 20 years now. That's got to say something about the office. When patients ask when he plans to retire he always replies, "When my winning lottery ticket comes in." My boss knows that I don't like that word. When a patient asks him about it my boss tells them jokingly, "Don't talk about it, she gets upset." Now, my boss has never said that he is going to retire, but I do know that it is sneaking up on us. I am not worried about finding another job, I am worried about finding another boss. I dread that part.

On the Move...well sort of.

The only thing that I don't like about our house is OUR BEDROOM. It has such an awkward shape and the two windows are in the dumbest place. There isn't a good place to put the bed so that you can easily move around the room. I think the bed is too bulky for the room size anyway. I don't know, maybe a bed with one of those iron frames would be less bulky. So last night I decided, for the third time since we've moved into our house, to try the bed in a different place. As you can see it partially covers the window. I put the bed on the other side of our room which is farthest from the bedroom and bathroom door. We like where it is except that it partially covers the window and is too close to the closet. Oh yeah, and have you noticed the hideous wall paper? Yuck! We haven't gotten that far yet on the home improvements. I'm waiting to win the lottery so that we can make some additions onto the house for a master suite! Shhh...don't tell Larry.
