Sometimes I think the reason we believe life is dull is because we forget too quickly. Things are never dull. Take this past week.
My 17 year old got a nasty case of pink eye and went around the house saying, “I am Sauron.”
I found out a friend of mine (a person of respectable age) dragged raced my 19 year old. I find it hard to wrap my brain around two mini-vans barreling down a well-known speed trap. But my son told me, “It was okay. I pinned them between another car and our van—no way, was I going to get a ticket.” Hmm. I’m sure my friend might tell the story a bit differently.
For reasons unbeknownst to me, birds regularly fly down our chimney and into our house. Thankfully, Sauron-son and I are bird removal experts. Jezebel, our bird dog, believes that birds inside the house are pets and ignores them.
My husband missed clicking a button in TurboTax and we went from a refund to “give us your arm, your leg, and your firstborn son.” Since our first born no longer lives at home, I was beginning to wonder how I could lure him back. Thankfully, we found the random unclicked button. I am still recovering from the stress.
I’m hoping for a mellow, quiet week. Dull is good.
