Laughter is the best medicine.

It's been a busy few weeks here at 911, but not a single
project has been completed  (or photographed) me.

I've painted the dark stained trim in our front entryway, and I'm suffering from a slight case
of painter's remorse.  I know I'll be happy when it's all done, but it will take
some getting used to.  We finally have the old iron bed (with a new mattress and box spring)
 back in the guest bedroom, but of course the old bed skirt is too short.  Sigh.
  The window boxes have been repaired and I planted the flowers yesterday,
 but I'm still deciding what cutout design I want on the wood shutters
we have yet to make.  I should be working on a  top secret project that's got
to be completed by Sunday morning.  I'll get to it in a minute.  :)
We've cleaned out our garage, and for the first time in years
we can actually walk through without tripping on junk!

While looking through boxes stored in the garage, I came across something I thought
I had inadvertently thrown away.  Even after all these years,  it still makes me laugh.

Apparently our daughter's teacher approved of her answers.
See if you can find the one that cracks me up.

I hope you find something that makes you laugh today.


Pssst.  Happy Birthday to Tracy at Crow's Feet Chic !


  1. That's pretty funny! Even the picture she drew on someone laying on eyes!! Don't they come up with some of the funniest things? Thru the eyes of a child.....


  2. That is so funny !!!!!!!! ... Love this . I was just talking about shows where kids say the darndest things.. SO cute .. .

  3. LOL! Isn't it the best fun to go through and look at the things our kids wrote?
    One of my favorite things to do. I think that one deserves framing!
    Painters remorse, huh? Oh, boy.

  4. ohmygosh, I had to read them twice, and we know THAT could really be painful!! Don't have remorse, it always looks worse before it gets better!

  5. Too cute. That isn't how Vickie looks when she lets off steam, is it? The whole thing is priceless. Frame it and hang it in the house!

  6. Hahahahaha. ;) That is hilarious. Can't wait to see you guys on Sunday!!!!

  7. That is so funny and yes a keeper for sure!

  8. Sooo cute!! It's fun to find things like that to bring back great memories.

  9. Love your daughter's drawings...too cute! Glad you found them. Can't wait to see your projects when you have the time.

  10. Hi Vickie, We also painted our dark living room trim moldings and love it. It is a lot of work, but you are going to be so glad when done and love it too.
    Cleaning out the garage is an ever going project for me. Love your daughters drawings. They all make me smile.
    Enjoy the day.

  11. Hee hee hee... love the little eyeballs laying there! Both girls have these treasures to look forward to now. :) Thanks much for the birthday wishes and good luck with your TO DO list! :)

  12. My you have been busy! Love the old school paper...they all make me laugh!

  13. I never want to lay on her eyes again.


  14. I'm with you as far as being MIA and I have vowed to never lay on anyone's eyes either.

  15. Ohmygosh Mom! That is hilarious! I'm glad you saved that ... what grade was that? Those are some complicated word scrambles ... I'm not sure if I would get it right if I tried today ;0)

    I like the lady letting off some steam. Looks angry because of her big nose!

    Thanks for the laugh - see you soon!

  16. So many projects! I'm waiting anxiously for the photos.
    Funny drawings from you daughter, those eyes on the floor...LOL. I also love to keep school papers, great memories.

  17. This is something that is a great thing to have and that you saved by accident and I am sure you are glad. Very cute and funny too.


  18. Vickie this is so cute and yes so funny! Don't you love coming across those old papers!Thank you so much for the laugh!

  19. I'm glad I laid eyes on this adorable post !

  20. Oh my goodness, this is so funny! Thanks for sharing.

  21. I love your humor....and thanks for the HB on a favorite Birthday....Monkey fun I am sure

  22. What cute art work. I would never throw that away, and I bet you never will either. That one's a keeper.

  23. So being goofy runs in the family? Just think, if you don't like the paint by the time you're finished, you can always strip it off and restain it. Because that wouldn't be any work at all!

  24. so cute, vickie! hope the white trim grows on you--love mine....just didn't like painting it-ha! enjoy your weekend!

  25. Well more than one of them made me laugh. Don't you just love the old stuff from your kids. They were always good for a laugh!

  26. Ha, ha ... so cute! I love the little eyeballs.

  27. Adorable artwork, you should frame it! Have a great week too!

  28. I like the "I never want to lay on her eyes again" Smart girl!
