The breaking point.

7 Apr

I packed a kitchen timer in a box yesterday.  Somehow, that timer has been tripped and is currently beeping from the bottom of a very tall pile of boxes in the living room.   Apparently, this one doesn’t have an automatic shut-off.  In fact, it’s been going for about an hour now. 

Guys, this might be the end for me. 

The next time you see my face may be on the six o’clock news, whether as the woman about to jump off the bridge, the woman arrested for being drunk in public, or the woman suspected of murdering engineers at the kitchen timer manufacturing company.

    I knew blogs were good for something. That is a little tidbit I am going to tuck away for future reference: ‘Disarm all kitchen timers before packing.’

    You forgot one… arson. Burning the house down would get rid of the timer.

    Like Lisa Kudrow didn’t remind me of you enough! You need to see the Friends episode when Phoebe thinks the smoke alarm is trying to taunt her.

    Oh and if I get to vote, I vote for seeing Jaime drunk in public on the six o’clock news!

    Ah the beauty of honesty. Now you will never go postal! Nice try though. I am sure that timer will see its early demise as soon as it is found in the unpacking. Good luck with the move tough mama!

    on Hi there! Just found your blog through one of the RV-ing Facebook guoprs. I just got curious about your family and your life =)Are you actually living in your RV? I saw a house in the background of one of the pictures. I loved the way you did your cupboards and I will be painting ours shortly too, so I will have to read again to figure out how exactly you have done it.How old are your kids?
