A Scrapbook in Tip


This was handed to me this morning by a small lanky boy with a very sour expression. Apparently he was not too happy with me for rejecting his fabulous ideas (that he was shouting at me while I was otherwise occupied). I told him I wasn't going to do those things and he should do his own scrapbook page. He did. Once he had his idea fleshed out, I think he forgave me.
I was part amused, part annoyed and part ashamed. So really, I guess I felt like a mom. I mean, sure it's a great "scrapbook in tip" (read it really fast) but COME ON!!

We are all home sick today. Bill went in, but he probably should have stayed home. Ahhhh. 88 Degrees in November. Is that a recipe for illness or what? It's cooler today, thank You Lord!!!!

The busy-ness begins tommorrow. Hoping to use today to recover. I'm only giving it one day. Then, sick-be-gone! I am done with you! You can stay today, but tommorrow you are O-U-T!!!!!

ETA: Thank you, Mr. HarryTick for the editing of the paper so everyone could read it! :)

I wonder if that's the way he wants you to get his attention when he doesn't do what you ask.

Sorry your sick, but you must be well manana!!
