I can’t resist. I MUST continue the story. If I keep it inside, I will explode. It is THAT funny. I’m giggling as I write this.
I traveled ALL day yesterday to get home from Phoenix. Due to delayed flights, I finally walked in the door this morning at 12:30am…exHAUSTed.
This is what I walked in to:
I opened the door to find both still awake. Not a surprise there…Jacob fights sleep when his daddy isn’t asleep. My eyes hadn’t adjusted to the dimmed light yet, but my body could FEEL the COLD in the house.
I said “Man, it’s FREEZING in here!”
I could hear…but not really see yet…Keith say that it was cold to help the carpet dry. He said it’s actually a lot warmer than earlier. I could hear Jacob sneezing, saying that he has a cold.
My eyes adjusted.
THIS is what I saw:
Then, Jacob grabs my arm, says “Take your shoes off…the carpet is still wet,” and leads me into his bathroom to this:
If you look really close, you can see the water line. I haven’t measured it, but it looks like 3 or 4 inches high!!!! :O
Keith then shows me this…an empty bottle of whiskey…the Gentleman’s whiskey that I bought for him on the cruise last month as a surprise when he came home…the whiskey that was 3/4 FULL when I left 3 days ago!
Finally Jacob shows me his coconut. I have NO clue why my child has a coconut. None. Perhaps they were imagining being in the tropics yesterday while enduring subarctic temperatures?
I promised both that I won’t leave them alone for a few months. It feels good to be needed. 🙂
