#140 & #141

140. After you decide to quit your job, the next day, the company offers you a pay raise.

#138 & #139

138. Your phone stops working on important days like the first day of school when you really need to hear from your kids.

139. Every week, the newspaper issues the same coupon. But on the day you could use it, the newspaper leaves it out.

#136 & #137

136. When you put a brand new chain on your chainsaw, you’ll run across a nail. But, if you use the old one, you can saw all day without finding one.

137. At the grocery store, your bag of coupons which you spent 20 minutes organizing will fly like confetti all across aisle 7 as you reach for a small can of tuna.

sunshine-blogger-awardI am so humbled and find it kinda ironic to have been nominated by Jenn at Reclaiming my Sanity for the sunshine blogger award.  Hers was one of the very first blogs I read when I started. She talks about life with her family. It reminds me so much of when my kids were little that I always smile.
