Three Dubs

Happy Hump Day!  Here are my dubs for the day:
Whine: We had a wind storm last night and it knocked over my bean plants and my beautiful zinnias! (There weren't many left thanks to the last wind storm).  A mini woo-hoo: at least it's the end of the season.  Inexplicably, Molly's scooter which was in the middle of the very unsheltered driveway, didn't seem to move an inch.  Whatever wind.  Whatever.
Wish: I wish Molly never would have found The Pied Piper in this bag of hand-me-down books we got.  She keeps asking me to read it and it's HORRIBLE!  As you may know if you've been a follower for a while, I have a terrific fear of... ew ew ew... here it goes- mice.  Double that fear for rats.  Then there's the whole part about the mountain swallowing up all the kids in the village except for the little boy with the bad leg.  So so much wrong with this.  So very much.
Woo-hoo: Adrienne said two new "words" today: "boom" (when she falls) and "bonk" (when she hits her head).  In our household those totally count as words.  Here are a couple woo-hoos that are less annoying than some chick blabbing about her kid's non-words: my house is semi-clean (which is as good as it ever gets around here), I had my first Bible study of the year today and it rocked, some friends of ours announced their pregnancy today, and I think I may actually get 100 Ad Bits followers by the end of the year!  Can I get a WOO-HOO!?!

In honor (word choice?) of my wish, here is a commercial I hate, but have to admit is funny.  I featured it all the way back in January before I had any followers (have I thanked you guys lately for following?  Thank you!!!)

Thanks, Becky Jane
Raising kids can be a lot like weeding the rose bed...well worth it, but...OUCH!

I love that one! Someone sent it to me on Facebook the other day. It made me laugh!

I'll give you a "Woo-Hoo" a "bonk" and a "boom"! All of which are Class A words in my book.

Okay, on to more pressing matters. I am not afraid of rats or mice, as long as they are pets, in cages, and not uninvited guests. So as I was watching the commercial, i thought, how cute, not even noticing the poor mousey was on a trap. Then WHAM!, that was horrible. horrible. horrible. but i couldn't look away. and then he starting lifting weights, and i almost peed in my pants. too cute. thanks for that.
