I want my adenoids back

Today Hannah had surgery. She had a second set of tubes put in her ears and her adenoids out. She is doing very well. Per doctor's orders, she will have to stay indoors for a week. I'm sure that she will bouncing off the walls. She said something really funny. In recovery, I told her that I was there and she sat up and gave me a hug and then said to me in the saddest voice, "I want my adenoids back." Funny, funny girl.

Using KSL

I have been looking for a couch either for the new family room or for the playroom. I have looked every day on KSL and once in a great while I find something of interest. It is amazing to me what people are selling and how much they want for it. Last night I came across something that was funny. The ad at KSL stated that this sectional was "low grade leather". Now, to me this means not real leather and possible C R A P. I was thinking they might be asking less than $500. Guess how much they wanted for this "low grade leather"? $1500 bucks!! Some low grade leather. People, people people. It is totally crazy. I'm thinking that it will be awhile before any body will buy the "low grade leather" sectional.
Now we have used this service of KSL to sell and to buy things. It is awesome. In fact we just sold some left over electrical wire. Someone called and asked if it was used. Used??? I asked Mark if this is common for people to sell used wire. He said that it happens all the time. Needless to say, it wasn't used and the people bought it for $70 bucks. Not bad. I wonder what else I can sell?? I have some "low grade leather" as well.

Hannah is funny

Yesterday (Sunday) I was getting Hannah ready for church. I was helping her get her tights on which I despise. I had just pulled them up around her waist and she says to me "Mom, you got them in my nuts." I just about hit the floor laughing. I told her "Hannah, you don't have nuts." She then replied " Okay, then you got them in.........." She said nothing. I wasn't sure if she was trying to think of what she does have or what she doesn't have but I thought it was one of the funniest things that the child has ever uttered.

Hannah's birthday party

Hannah had a friend birthday party today. She had 9 friends out of 10 come today which isn't a bad turn out. She got some great presents which she was more interested in than the fact that her friends were here. She did receive a Hannah Montana glue and glitter set of which I was thrilled to see come into our home just after receiving new carpet a week earlier. Already there is glue glitter stuck to my grandmother's plaid couch that I received after she passed away. Mark wanted to know who gave it to Hannah so that in return we could give back a truly heinous gift. (I'm not sure when we would do this but it's the thought that counts, right?)
Not to strip gears too quickly but our basement is almost finished. We have doors to hang and the vanity and the tile on the ceiling in the bathroom to finish but carpet and everything else is done. Thank you to all that is holy that it is done. I'm not sure what we will do on Saturdays and weeknights when it's totally complete. Our lives have revolved around the stupid basement. Now I can send the girls to the basement to play and I have SPACE.

Love love kiss kiss
