You know you're a pathetic cook when...

Tonight Katie was pretending to bake pizza. She reached inside the cardboard box she was pretending was the oven and then yanked out her hand and said "ow! I got a burn!" then she turns to me and says, "It hurts bad."
I guess she's watched me cook too many times....

My House is a Disaster

Song for a Fifth Child

Mother, O Mother, come shake out your cloth,

Empty the dustpan, poison the moth,
Hang out the washing, make up the bed,
Sew on a button and butter the bread.

Where is the mother whose house is so shocking?
She's up in the nursery, blissfully rocking.

Oh, I've grown as shiftless as Little Boy Blue,

Lullabye, rockabye, lullabye loo.

Dishes are waiting and bills are past due
Pat-a-cake, darling, and peek, peekaboo

The shopping's not done and there's nothing for stew

And out in the yard there's a hullabaloo
But I'm playing Kanga and this is my Roo
Look! Aren't his eyes the most wonderful hue?
Lullabye, rockaby lullabye loo.

The cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow
But children grow up as I've learned to my sorrow.
So quiet down cobwebs; Dust go to sleep!
I'm rocking my baby and babies don't keep.

When Upon Life's Billows You Are Tempest Tossed

Good News: I got to do something I have never done before yesterday. I got to ride in a cop car.

Bad News: Someone broke into our car and ripped apart the front of the car trying to steal our cd player among other things. Luckily we don't keep too many valuables in the car. Our battery pack thing and the cd player were the only things of real worth taken...besides brand new jumbo package of paper towel rolls.

Good News: the police caught the guy who did it, and we got our stuff back minus the paper towels rolls. I am strongly considering to tell the police to go back to the guy's apartment and get my paper towels. 7$ is 7$.

Bad News: Our insurance won't cover the damage because our deductible is too high so we'll be paying a couple hundred dollars out to repair that which was broken. Hence the reason I want my paper towels back. If I'm going to pay 176$ just to fix the window, I want my $7 worth of paper towels back.

Good News: The church is still true.
Bad news: The thief doesn't know it.
