Some things you would think would be harder to lose..

Today during the dance of a thousand soccer practices, I found myself loitering over by the water fountain at the YMCA.

Located directly next to said water fountain is the lost and found. Now generally, I probably wouldn't have even batted an eye walking past, but one of the items just sorta stood out.

Now amidst the sports practices and camps going on several scenerios presented themselves in my mind.

mom- "You are sure you have everything?"
kid -" yep!"
(several hours later)
kid - "mom I can't find my bar stool!!"
mom - "I asked you to make sure you had everything!"


wife comes home from working out.. throws keys across table...
"oh man.. HONEY!! I need to run back to the Y, I left my bar stool!!""
husband - "AGAIN??? That's the third time this week!"

criminally dusty

So last Wednesday we went and spent a lovely day at Legoland with lovely friends. It was nice, it was fabulous, it was a long day. :)

We get home, ready to fall into a shower and some dinner.. (or maybe the other way around) and what am I greeted with?? The fine fine rent-a-cops here at Lincoln Property Management (the people who own our housing) left me a ticket on Daniel's car.

I quickly check the tags, nope I'm current. Flat tire? Nope, so it's not a disabled vehicle. No red curbs.. no "no parking" signs. I grab the "ticket" and quickly scan to the reason of my infraction.

Apparently my high crime is I have a criminally DIRTY car. Yes, the fine"pretend police" (as my kids call them) ticketed me for having a dirty car.

Now to make this story even MORE delightful. I go to unlock the door to my house and there is a notice on my front door from Lincoln that states that due to the current water shortage here in sunny California, I am NOT ALLO…
