Staples

As beautiful as they might seem, staplers are very dangerous.  Friday was great, don’t get me wrong!  But after a day (Saturday) of riding my bike in the rain all over “tar-nation” (to get milk) and getting soaked, Sunday seemed like a fantastic fresh start.  Little did I know that later that afternoon I’d be hostage to a whole lot of pain.  So, when my Mom decided to throw a rummage sale, me and Sam were sent all over the neighborhood to put up signs.  While on the corner of Howell and Oklahoma near a gas station with lots of traffic, Samantha dropped a sign and flew into the road.  She was sent chasing it and in the process she dropped the stapler we were using.  Guess where that stapler went?  Right under my foot!  When I stepped down I was shocked to see that a staple was in my foot!  “Owwwwwwwww!”  It took forever to pull it out and it hurt!  Lesson learned.  Don’t trust staplers or sisters.

Yummy in my Tummy!

This might come as a shocker to all of you, but I had nothing after school yesterday!  That’s right, I did my science homework and basically went along for the ride, literally!  My sisters had piano lessons over in Wauwatosa, so I rolled down the window and became hostage to the wonderful Spring scenery.  While my sisters were in their piano lessons my mom and I went window shopping and we came upon a florist called, Urban Sense (cool name) selling fun old fashioned candy.  I was excited, and so went in and picked out a few things.  My favorite, out of his entire selection were the “Nik-L-Nips” that I love to savor in my mouth.  You don’t find them too often anymore, so it was a real treat!  First, I eat the red ones, then the blue ones, orange ones and I save the green and yellow bottles for last!  I probably sound like a child, don’t I.  I’m kind of embarrassed that I’m getting all worked up about extinct candy but these little things are what make my day!  Thanks to all who commented on the “Weekly fun w/ Mady7!” but remember you have until next week.  Currently, my dog is winning, but you never know!

In the Shower…

The weekend was pretty good I guess, considering that I was basically babysitting my little sister the whole entire weekend! But last night was the worst! First in the shower, my Mom decides to creep up on me and scream so that I basically collapse with a combination of laughter and fright. Then my sister decides to take a pitcher of cold (freezing) water and pour it on me from the outside of the shower. It was crazy! Then, my older sister Samantha decides to talk and fidget throughout the bed the whole night. So, if I come to lunch with bags under my eyes and without a pep in my step please know that it is not from old age! What did I ever do to deserve this? How was your weekend?
