There's the line-up!! Be sure to check them all out. They are some seriously funny ladies. ;)

Oh, boy! Do I have some good ones for you!!! LOL

Here lately anytime someone does something funny or silly, the rest of the gang will yell, "Well, THAT'S going on the Fly on the Wall!" Even The Hubby has gotten in on the act. ;)

Apparently Deanna wants to go to Poohru. Like Peru only I bet it doesn't smell very nice.....

I would like to introduce you to Donny Jepp. Yep, that one was me....

This one should be titled, "The Night I Almost Died!"

I have VERY short legs. My PJ pants tend to go over my feet. Now, add in the fact that I tried to step over a laundry basket and I bet you can guess what happened. I went flying through the air while carrying my laptop. I landed on one of Colin's toys and rolled! The laptop was fine. My shin was NOT. I still have a knot there.

SIGH.... I could trip over nothing.....

The Hubby was impressed, though.

SIGH.... I may never live it down.

Colin - I can see sooooo great!! I have the eyes of a tiger!

So, I went to pay our rent online. Apparently they want to charge $56!!!!! TO PAY THE RENT ONLINE!! WHAT??? I don't think so.... I drove it out to the management company. Yeah. That's CRAZY!!! I almost had a heart attack!!

Pudding was the source of a great debate in our house over the past few weeks. Yes, pudding.... The Hubby thought that ALL pudding was sugar free. He just wouldn't hear otherwise. Well, we all know what happened next, don't we. I just HAD to prove him wrong. I bought a few packs of sugar free and NOT sugar free. LOL

Cailey - It must be sooooo cool to have your own site!

We were all sitting out on the porch one evening when we heard Deanna scream bloody murder. Loki had just peed on her leg! ROFLOL!! She was completely mortified. We thought it was hilarious! ;)

I LOOOOOOOVE Yankee Candles. I mean LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE them!!!! BUT what is up with the pushy sales ladies??? OH MY GOSH!!! Joshua and I were at the mall when I decided to just stop in. Now, I have been in candle withdrawal. 2 moves in 6 months doesn't leave a lot of extra for candles, y'know. But I wanted SOMETHING. They were having a sale on tarts and I figured I could justify that. ;) But the lady just would NOT leave me alone. Joshua called her a candle pusher! ROFLOL!! It's enough to make you want to order them online and never set foot in one of the stores. Do they work on commission????

This is very close to what the 2nd floor and stairs looked like one morning. Apparently the girls' room was just as bad judging by Deanna's screams.  There was also yarn involved. I say, dog = TP, cats = yarn. It just makes sense. ;)

We were all sitting watching TV when I noticed that Deanna was petting one of my black socks.... I asked her why. She freaks out. Apparently she thought it was the kitten. No, she wasn't wearing her glasses. It reminded of a movie where a lady thinks she's petting a cat only it's a rat instead.

Hmmm, would that be terrible?? Noooo..... I think it would be great. Hee hee hee hee!! ;)

The kids and I were talking about a bunch of crazy stuff that's happened in the past. They encouraged me to share some of it with you.

See, Hubby! It's THEIR fault.

Oh, who am I kidding, he doesn't even read the blog. ;)

About 10 years ago The Hubby and I went on a trip. He was going to check out jobs in New Jersey and Virginia. We stopped one night in a small town in Virginia to eat and get a room.

We decided to go to Shoney's. Yummy!!!

The Hubby loads up his plate and sits down, ready to dig in. He takes a heaping spoonful, "Hmmm. Banana pudding!"

The next thing I know he is spitting it out all over the place. "Iss nah puddin!! Iss nah puddin!!!"

Nope! Not banana pudding! It's BUTTER!!!

I am DYING!!!! I can't breathe!! I look over and our server is dying. The lady at the buffet is dying.

It was a very long time before I could get him to step into a Shoney's again.

Last year the girls and I were at a church picnic. The Hubby calls and is freaking out. He went to smell the bottle of CHLORINE and nearly passed out!!! OH MY GOSH!!! I freaked out!

He completely missed the warning on the side of bottle in GINORMOUS letters.

Why would he smell it you ask??? He loves the smell of chlorine. EWWW!!!!

Good grief.

Years ago Jacob was reading something for school.

Jacob - Momma, what's a dork knob?

Me - A what?? Let me see that.

Jacob, that says DOORKNOB!!!!

Jacob (about 12 years old and playing a video game) - I'm moving so fast only your eyes can see me!

- I'm so good! I have acid reflexes!!!

Ok. I think I will save the rest for latter.  ;)


  1. Ah, Stacy...this is what makes me miss having young children at home! Thanks for the many chuckles this morning. And...it's good to know that someone else has a husband who doesn't read her blogs. Of course, that gives us a lot more freedom when it comes to telling stories on them.

  2. Thanks, Lorinda!!
    I don't know what I would do if he ever actually read it. I could be in some trouble... LOL

  3. I like the smell of chlorine because it makes me think of swimming, but I'd never go smell it out of the bottle!

    Love the picture with the tp-I came home to almost the exact same scene last week. I had to salvage the TP-is that sad????

    Have you seen this commercial? How funny is it that two fly posts made me think of the same one today! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=em2EDkYkcSU

    Thanks for sharing! You are too funny!

  4. Thanks, Sarah!!!
    Y'know, we had to salvage it, too... Sadly it happens VERY often around here. LOL
    OMGOSH!! LOVING that commercial.
    Actually, I almost told a raccoon story this time. ROFLOL!

  5. My husband sometimes zones out while he does his "man thing" and scratches. He once go so zoned out that he didn't realize he was scratching MY arm instead of his! The story about your daughter petting the sock made me think of that.

    Kids are hilarious.......sometimes I wish I could video tape them all the time...I'd be a millionaire with all the AFV wins!

  6. I'm a Yankee candle freak, too! I have them all over my house. My mom goes to their main store up north every year and brings back all kinds of fun stuff. LOVE the story about your hubs eating the butter and thinking it was pudding! ROTFL!!! Too funny!

  7. ROFLOL, Sarah!! HILARIOUS!!!
    Mine are on to me. As soon as I bring up my phone they clam up. Rotten!!! LOL

  8. THANKS, Marcia!!!
    Have you had issues with the candle pushers??? LOL

  9. Your family is just too funny. But spitting out butter in the restaurant still has me laughing.

    I just LOVE your Fly cartoons. They are just too cute.

  10. Thank you, Karen!!!!!
    We just loooove telling the butter story. ROFLOL!

  11. Your cartoons are always so fun, Stacy. I love reading about your family. The "Petting the sock" and "Shoney's" stories were my favorite.
    What's up with a 56 dollar fee on online rent? That is criminal!

  12. THANK YOU!!!
    Yeah, I know!! INSANE!! No way am I ever paying that.... NO WAY!!

  13. Great stuff! My youngest son comes home this weekend. 7 months he's been in the AF at school. I am sure I'll have all sorts of good stuff next month :)
    Spatulas On Parade

  14. YAY for your son coming home!!! That's THE BEST thing in the world.
