Eviction, French Kissing, and The Frizz Monster

Sunday after church we went straight to Jeffrey's parent's house.  I don't remember the exact reasons why.  But we didn't stop home before we went there.

When we did get home, we found a note in our door.  It said:

"Hi.  I am looking to buy or rent a house.  Please call me.  Cindy."

I was dumbfounded.  Why on earth would someone have given us that note?  I called my next door neighbor, and she said that no one had stopped by her house.  She checked the ward directory, and no one with that name/number existed there.

Confused, I called Cindy.  She said that she had been looking at houses in our area, and ours was the only house where she had left a note.  I asked her why, since there are quite a few houses with For Sale signs in the yard, and ours clearly does not have one.

She said it looked like someone (we) had been evicted.  There were all those boxes in the carport and back patio, it looked like it held all of our belongings.  Sometimes when people are evicted the landlord will box up all their things and leave it outside to be picked up.

What?!?!!

As odd as that is, I am feeling like a bit of organizing and cleaning is necessary. 

 

What do you think?

Tonight, as I was getting Keith ready for bed, he decided to be like Mommy.  He adjusted his nightshirt just so, and came running to find me.  "Look, Mommy!  Now I have a skirt, just like you!"


Jeffrey was not amused.  He sent him to bed.  I called him back for his goodnight kiss.  He came running back, wrapped his arms around me and gave me an anaconda squeeze.  When I got my breath back, I tipped his head back to give him a kiss...

... and upon contact, he stuck out his tongue!  
Yup, I got frenched by a three year old.  In a "Skirt."  It was oddly disturbing.

Emergency GNOs are sometimes the best.  My dear friend Heather needed out today, so she came over to my house and kept me company while I did laundry.  What a sweet friend, right?  And of course, it wouldn't be a GNO with Heather without some Erasure videos.  Geeze, they make me laugh!  And since one thing leads to another we tried to find the best 80's singer hair style/fashion sense.  Which of course led me to pull out my fifth grade school picture.  


I now know how to cheer her up if she is ever having a bad day again.  Good laughs.  I looked great.  :)  The one in the middle with frizz hair and glasses.  Yup, that is me.  Wasn't I rocking the early 90's style?  Aren't you all jealous?  You should be.

ok, first off what a nosey person that Cindy was. It is quite humorous though and perhaps, yes, maybe some spring cleaning is in order?

Hah, I recognize many people from that photo and I wasn't even at the same school at the time *L*

I had to laugh at the Cindy story. What an odd woman.

=)

Oh no that is awful that that person left a note on your door. Kinda funny though.

Ooohhh the coveted french kiss. They always manage to sneak those in when you are least expecting it. LOL

LOVE that picture, it reminds me of my 8th grade promotion pictures.

The girl in the front with the red dress-I totally had that dress! My grandma sent it to me.

And yes you have a few things in your carport but definitely does not look like someone has been evicted!

MiMi said...

Seriously. I've had conversations and situations with my boys that are just as weird as your kid frenching you.
LOL! That's awesome, girl.

Veronica said...

I can't believe that woman left you a note like that, regardless of what your carport looks like!

Too funny about Keith, the dress and the french kiss. Alex has done that to me before, it definitely caught me by surprise!

my name is heather... said...

ha ha. that picture. it makes me smile :0) i can't wait to have our GNO where we bust out all the old photos- seriously amy, you will be laughing your butt off at mine- that, or cringing. i cringe.

cindy. cindy. cindy. that is almost like someone assuming someone is pregnant and asking, "when are you due?" and the person says, "uhhh, what?" i need cindy to come say that about my garage- maybe then i would get my butt in gear :0)

children can be so blasted cute! that keith- what a sweet boy. i think you are safe until he busts out your heels...and bra....and makeup :0) basically you are safe until he looks like he needs to be in an Erasure video :0)

Thanks for the emergency GNO!

Hahahaha, oops! I've been obsessed with cleaning out our basement lately. Every chance max is napping and Brennan is entertained, I am down there dejunking.

Francisca said...

LOL! That is hillarious. If we didn't have a garage door everyone would think we were a Public Storage facility. How is it possible for a small family to accumulate so much in so little time?

I love the picture. You have always been a cutie. I have likewise embarrassing photos. It taught me Rachel will get to wear mousse to school.

Hey I'm that kid in the red dress =) I need to find all my old school pictures... I think My mom still has them...??? Not sure... Pepole have stoped at my moms house and asked if she is having a yard sale before.... Yeah its kinda strange... And every time we do clean out the garage some one all ways stops and thinks we are having a sale... silly people =)

The title alone is intriguing!! hahaha. What a great day that was.

Oh no! I laughed really hard though at the "eviction" thing...
Perhaps organizing wouldn't be out of the question.
Of course, when you have had as much rain and snow as you guys have had, I don't blame you if you don't want to. I wouldn't!
