The Destroyer

How does this sweet innocent little face . . . . . . .
turn into this destructive wild thing?

I see toilet paper scattered everywhere. . . hair equipment cord on the floor . . . and looks like that's not all. Molly is left alone all day while Jennifer is at work. She is usually put in her doggie house because she is known to be a destroyer at times. But some magical way she opens her doggie house door and escapes. And this is what Jennifer comes home to on occasion. Never really knowing what she will find when she gets home. And never really knowing if Molly escaped her doggie house during the day.

Memo to Molly: sometimes we just don't need to come home to a messy house at 5pm. We may have company, you know!

All Washed Up

A hot summer August day, working up a sweat, running here and there. We are drinking water, running water, using water constantly all day.

Trent's home. He's got a dirty truck, with a truck load of dirty laundry.
He's washing his truck inside and out. And I'm washing the laundry.

Molly also dropped by with Jennifer. She needs a bath, too. So in the tub she goes. She comes out so clean, fluffy, and smelly good!
We gotta eat you know. Then there's a sink of dirty dishes to wash.

Stop and think how much water a household uses in one day. It's just non stop, if you are actually doing something around the house. Our water is not measured by a water bill. We have a private water well. So I feel like "free" water all day. Even though Larry tells me it cost electricity to run the pump, that pulls the water from the ground, that fills the water tank that supplies the kitchen and the bathroom and the outside faucets. Ok, don't use the water unnecessary is the moral to this.

But, with the 3 hurricanes swirling out there, we should definitely have no shortage of water in the ground.
