We're livin' it up on the U.P. - that's Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Punkie is 6 and LOVED Kindergarten! Isaboo is 2 and she's a smiley whirl wind. We also call her Busy-Isi. This year we welcomed little Lorenzo to our family.

Life is great!

I Found the Quarters...

Well, it has been a week and a half since we did laundry. We usually do it once a week but lately it has been getting harder and harder to do it with Marley being so mobile. Plus, I was disheartened by the quarter situation last week. But, you all know that laundry becomes forced when you're on your last pair of undies. So, today was laundry day.

We have a Big bucket of laundry soap, so I scoop a bunch of the soap into a large plastic baggy and then we keep the baggy on top of the bucket. We keep the bucket in the back of our coat closest. This morning when I reached to the back of the coat closet to retrieve the bag of soap, I felt two bags! My heart immediately jumped for joy! It was the bag of quarters!

I'm so glad we had it all the time. I also counted the quarters and we have $7.25 in there. That will almost cover our laundry for today! Hurray!

Thanks for sympathizing with us when we thought they were taken. Thanks for celebrating with us when we found that we had them all the time.
When I searched for some images to post with this good news I found the images below. Lost is one of "my shows." The top picture is one of the pictures made by the show and the bottom picture is a spoof.

Notice the helicopter at the top and the freighter in the background. I love it!

I'm glad the quarters were found. AND I'm looking forward to this weeks episode of LOST; or should I say FOUND??! It's not a question of where we got lost, but WHEN we got lost! Hilarious.

I'm glad you found your quarters and I'm really glad that kid didn't take them. I love Lost. We don't have cable though so we always have to wait until they come out on DVD to watch them. :(

Yay, I'm glad your quarters were found and that dude didn't steal them! Quarters are definitely a prized posession when you have to pay for laundry. I would comment about Lost, but sadly, I don't watch it. Enjoy though.

AAAHHH. Did you find the Christmas DVD in the closet?

Congrats on the quarters... and holy moly -- 7 bucks to do all your laundry?! Pricey, man! I almost peed my pants when I read that! Whoa!
