Last night, as we were searching frantically for the Angelin@ Ballerin@ movie we rented for the library, I came across this gross scene hidden behind the girls furniture in the bedroom. I know it may turn your stomach. Yuck. Just plain yuck.
It looks like Asian hair, nicely cut on one end with gooey red stuff matted in it. My first thought was blood. But, blood wouldn't stay red. Upon closer examination...putty. Red putty that is not allowed in the bedroom in the first place. How did it get behind the furniture? And who was the culprit? Well, I am proud to say that the culprit did not lie, but immediately confessed to what she tried to hide from me. Putty got in her hair. She tried to hide it by cutting it out. Then she tossed it behind the dresser, knowing I'd see it in the trash. Doesn't she know that her deeds will find her out? By the way, this was the same Chinese girl that gave herself a mullet on one side and cut Joy's hair while I was in China with Ivy. We found the movie, by the way, under the furniture.
As with Jordan, the girls made a paper chain counting the days until we leave to see Seth graduate from Marine boot camp.
Jordan is finally getting settled in a routine. She is currently on a base in Florida taking classes for her new job in the Navy. She seems very excited about her new path in life. We are very proud of her success and pray for her daily. Her most recent request? Her cowboy boots,
nail polish, perfume, and her sheets. How did this girl survive boot camp without these items? She wants her car, but I can't send that one to her just now. I sure miss her.
So, today is a special day. It is special because my son, Jack, comes home! We left him in Illinois with his best bud, David. He's been living the life of pleasure since then. It'll be reality again as soon as he walks through the door. Mike has been in Chicago this week for work, so the 2 of them fly home together this afternoon.
When did he start looking so old? I'm not sure I'm liking that shadow thing happening around his lip.
