Burnin' Hail

Thursday, 02 June 2005

A couple of days ago Chris and I were building Bionicles and shooting the breeze when he suddenly got serious.

"Mom?"  He asked.
"Yes, sweetie?"
"Do I sin?"
"Yes, sweetie, we all fall short of God's expectations."  I replied.
"Can I go to Heaven?"
"Yes, Jesus died for us so that we don't have to be separated from God forever.  You just have to accept His gift."  I thought that was a good answer.
"Mom?"  He continues.
"Yes, sweetie?"
"Shelby said that if I sin I'm going to go to Hail."
"Hail?" I giggled, "I don't think you're going to Hail, sweetie."

I love that Texas drawl!  In the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, where I'm from, we'd say, "Yah, you sin you go to hell, eh?"

Gooblink has been up and on the web for one month!!  Thank you for all of your support and encouragement!

We're scheduled to go camping again this weekend; this time with our good friends Kim and Cliff and kids.  How fun will that be?  Let's see, we're expecting thunderstorms and we've got 2 guys each with a proclivity for doing scary things with propane.  You will either hear about us on the news or I'll be posting some pretty good stories.  Pray for us.



It's Because I Wasn't Really Listening

Well, I can't poke fun at the speck of sawdust in Chuck's eye without acknowledging the log in my own. 

He read my "Chuckism" post and, though amused, let me know that he didn't think my recollection of the conversation between he and Alex regarding the doomed construction effort was entirely accurate.

Don't tell him I told you, but...

You can't work with Chuck for too long before you begin to notice something peculiar about his speech habits.  He has a penchant for speaking in over-used quotes.  His co-workers have affectionately labeled them "Chuckisms."  I now fear that these so-called "Chuckisms" are being woven into the very fabric of our children's education.


A Case of Identity Theft or Temporary Insanity

Now, check kiting is not an activity I advocate, condone or otherwise support.  Imagine, then, my shock and suprrise to get a call from one of our banks informing me that our money market account had a debit balance.

"What?"  I ask even though I heard her the first time.  "That can't be!  We rarely use that account."

"Yes, well, there have been 2 returned items bringing your account to a -$25 balance."  She states.  She's heard it all before.
