Ack!

I just noticed there's a typo in the blog I posted last night. I don't know how to fix it and it's making me itch! So just FTR, it should say "than BUY fancy jewelery...." not BY. Anyhoo.....
That's something about me. I'm OCD about spelling, grammar, and punctuation. When there's an error it usually jumps out at me, like a flashing neon sign. It's not my fault! I can't help it! And it drives me CRAZY. If a business has a sign, truck, or whatever and there are errors, I will boycott that business if at all possible. It's just a HUGE pet peeve of mine. It's not my fault! I was born this way....or something....
My youngest child is 6 years old and she is my mini-me. She got her progress report today. First one in first grade. She got straight A's! And the comment was: "Princess is doing great! She needs to work on paying attention instead of talking during instruction time."
Woops. =D Yep, that's my kid!
Now my middle daughter.....she scares me. She is smart, but she's very scatter-brained and kind of.....ditzy. Tonight she was eating chips (bad mother dinner tonight) and asked Mr. Wonderful if there were any big ones because all she had were little broken chips. So he found a few big chips in the big and gave them to her. She picked one up and proceeded to crush it.
WHY? Tell me, why did she do this? I literally just sat there with my jaw dropped staring at her. I am fascinated by how her brain works.

You are a great writer -- and funny too! You should've started a blog long ago.

As far as fixing your typos, which I didn't notice BTW, when you are signed in there should be a little pencil icon under the posts. You can click on that to edit.

Hey that happens to the best of us. Your fingers work faster then the brain! Did you fix your typo? I couldn't find it. I like your style - keep up the good work!
