Some Good News, and Some Bad News...

I attended a "special stake meeting" this morning to find out about ward boundary changes. I left everyone at home so as not to have to wrestle people on those terribly uncomfortable metal folding chairs. The meeting lasted a full two hours and when I got to the car I called home to check in. Dave informed me he had good news and bad news for me when I returned home. I asked for the good news over the phone. His reply was that there would be something for me to blog...



That is not exactly "good news", if you know what I mean. He said the bad news would have to wait for me to be here in person. Great.


I immediately considered an injury to one of the boys considering their demeanor when I left, but then realized that they would not have been laughing hysterically in the background of aforementioned phone call if someone were hurt...so I came up with the next most likely scenario, and wouldn't you know it-I was right.

Dave finally managed to break a window. I thought it would be throwing a football in the house (since one table lamp was already a casualty of such actions) but today it was the highest window in the living room broken by a Wii remote.


If you look closely you can see the remote sitting in a pile of broken glass from the inside pane. The outside pane is intact but cracked. That was done from the loft playing Wii Sports tennis without the strap on. Do you think he was swinging hard enough? No wonder he had tennis elbow a while back...




Oh, man. I can't wait to get an estimate on that damage...good thing it wasn't one of the kids.

However much it cost, I say you get the same amount to spend willy nilly! (Is that a real word?)

I'm eagerly awaiting news of the changes that occurred to the ward. I hope nothing too drastic happened.

Sorry about your window. What was the good news? That you would have something to blog about?

at least it's getting warmer out. i don't know if you remember when the bay window was "accidently" broken, a hurricane hit ct before mom and dad got it replaced, so rob and kurt and i had to keep the plastic in place because the parents weren't home. too funny. i'm glad it was dave not one of the boys. that would happen to sean too.
