Postcard From The Edge


The view from our future front door…….

When the only thing dirty in the kitchen is a pizza cutter, you know I’m in the final throes of a book. It’s due in less than a week. I can remember my own name. That’s about it. I offer you three-day-old news. It’s the best I can do. Remember the dryer trick from Monday?

16: She showed me what she can do with the dryer.

Me: You mean she got in it in front of you?

16: Yes.

Me: You didn’t shut the door on her, did you?

16: Yes.


16: No. But it was hard. I wanted to.

Me: Thank you for your restraint.

Then I paid him ten bucks to go pick up his brother from football practice.

    It sounds like you are doing fine since you can remember your name. :mrgreen:

    Woo hoo, you have a doorway now! Not to mention a lovely view of the beautiful mountains that surround you. :shimmy:

    Applause to 16 for his restraint! :bananadance:

  5. Alice Audrey says:

    Brothers! *shaking head* I’ll bet Princess has a few things to say about him.

    Hang in there. :clock: You can handle it, kids and all.

  6. Ellen says:

    Your kids are funny. 😆

    Your house is going to be awesome. It’s fun to watch it progress!

    Good luck with wrapping up your book – hang in there. :shocked:

    The view is great. :snoopy: As for the book, don’t worry. It will be done in time. :thumbsup: :hug: Yea for 16. :snoopy: I know it took an awful lot of restraint not to hit the on button. My brother once put my cat in the dryer and turned it on. It wasn’t pretty. I had to put a wallop on him for that. :fryingpan: Hope everyone has a great day.

    Leanne :purr:
