My day started off really good. Then it was time to go to my Piano lesson. I grab my phone, put on my shoes, open the door to the garage, OH NO, the door won’t open. 1st thought, how can I get into the garage to get my truck out? Garage door….No! It's on remote control and the control is in the truck. 2nd thought, Is the back door open to the garage? No such luck. 3rd thought, I have to get in there so I could pick up my baby from school in 1 hour. Next, I called the Chief. He gave me a simple solution. Un-screw the door handle. Not so simple when all the tools are in the GARAGE!!!! What good is a junk drawer when there’s no screwdriver in it?
Finally I found this. The Chief's old Coast Guard tool.....

Kelly's Show us where you live Friday
This is my son’s bedroom. I painted this room when I was 26 weeks pregnant. Now he is six years old. Due to the obvious reasons, I couldn’t stand on a ladder reaching to high places. My husband helped me out by paint two large stripes on the walls. 1st stripe is in beige, 2nd stripe is in blue. Then I started to paint all the clouds and characters, blending the water to the sand.
My husband built the roof out of 2x4 wood. I covered it in burlap and fishing net. Then I added some bugs and grass. I hung Frog out door lights underneath.
I covered the light with a small Eagle kite. I left the original light cover on the light so it wouldn't melt the kite.
The bed is a trundle bed with drawers under that. The train table I made out of 2x4 wood and I purchased the Thomas the tank engine Island adventure play board. I could not justify the high cost of those tables when I can make it for 25.oo. My son has been putting stickers on it for years making it his own.

How fast they grow. One day he is my darling little cutie, full of his own special personality and only dependent on me. I would watch him for hours. I didn’t want to miss one moment. He was born at 29 weeks and his weight was 3 lbs 8 oz. I could not find a pair of shoes small enough to fit him.

Three times a year we have a community block party. We alternate houses and the host of the party makes the main dish. All the other families bring a dish to complements the main meal. I had an Italian night. I made Lasagna and Eggplant Parmigian. All the food was wonderful.
