Let me explain- Maiya's first and only reward thus far for pooping in the toilet was a new bottle of bubbles at the store. She can't really let go of the fact that she should get new bubbles every time she poops. Today after properly defecating in the appropriate portal. She stood up and literally started dancing, while at the same time chanting "Yay, yay - Poop bubbles for me " repeatedly. It cracked me up. It sounded like something one would say if they were trying to replace cuss words - "RRRRRRRRRR.... Poop Bubbles!"
So here is one reason I have been trying to find words to replace cuss words this week-
Our Freezer broke! We bought our illustrious freezer on sale from Home Depot to the tune of 136 bucks about 18 months ago. It has been wonderful. I found out quickly after moving into this house the down side of a side-by-side fridge = The Freezer doesn't hold CRAP! It won't hold a single frozen pizza - not well anyway and it most certainly will not hold enough food for a household of seven. So now that the magic has left the lovely Magic Chef we face a decision that breaks down like this:
- Why call a repairman for an appliance that new was only 136.00
- So I call the city for special pickup - where I am informed I need it "tagged" by a repairman certifying the coolant has been emptied.
- List of prices: $70.00 service call to see what the problem with it is OR:
Tagging fee: $150.00 - yes folks you got that right it will be more expensive to dispose of this freezer than it was to buy it!
- POOP BUBBLES!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Onto better news:
My gorgeous, beautiful camera arrived! I took about 200 pictures with it in the span of 90 minutes and I have now hid it from myself because I have a to-do list a mile long and I could just sit and kiss the thing, oh and take more pictures with it. Here are few from my first minutes with it:
