It's only fair that I tell on my own self.
Last night, Paige went to a Christmas Sunday School party. After getting home, she and I were over in the west wing of the house...she on the laptop and me on my computer. We were talking about the party and playing the best game EVAH.
I have all these cubby holes on my desk that I have stashed lots of things in. Order in chaos kind of thinking. In one, I knew there was a bag of vanilla wafers that I keep for Vitt in the mornings. I decided I wanted a couple of those cookies.
I was playing the card game while reaching for the bag..that was behind some papers.
Now, Vitt has this fascination with shoe laces. If he finds a shoe with a lace...he finds it necessary to remove them. Drives us crazy trying to keep up with them. Apparently he had taken Makenna's brown ones out and I had stuck it in the cubby for safe keeping.
It was wrapped around the bag.
And I pulled the bag out without really looking.
And the shoestring came with it.
And...well.....it scared me.
So I screamed.
And started shaking my hand like crazy. While still holding on to the bag of cookies.
I startled Paige, too, and she wanted to know what was going on. I was explaining to her as I am to you and then I finished with....."All I know is I HAD TO SAVE THE COOKIES!"
She thought this was the funniest thing in the entire free world and almost hurt herself laughing at me.
I guess you had to be there.
