I think I'm high

On Sunday my husband and I vowed not to raise our voices to the kids this week which has consequently led to us being sugar sweet to them. I have to say it's really having an effect on me. I've never smoked marijuana, but I imagine the high I'm feeling might feel very similar to being high on pot. Last night there was a big nasty roach in my kitchen and it didn't freak me out. Instead I decided to write a song about it. It goes something like this:

I killed a roach.
It ran along the floor,
Beneath the cupboard door.
I smashed it with my shoe,
Not enough to make it goo.

I killed a roach.
She ran under the fridge,
I'll think I'll call her Midge.
I killed a roach, I killed a roach, I killed a roach.

I killed a roach
She'll die a lonely death,
Because of me, Melinda Beth.

I killed a roach.
She was a big and juicy one.
Her career in terror isn't done.
Because she's still beneath the fridge,
Dead and lonely Miss Fat Midge.
I killed a roach, I killed a roach, I killed a roach.
I killed a roach, I hope I killed that nasty roach.

Now, pass me some Cheetos.

I didn't take a single picture today. Shame on me! I was going to post a picture that I took on September 10th from either 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, or 2006 and label it "On this day in [insert year], but I didn't take any pictures on the 10th of September any of those years either. So September 10th is a pictureless day and so it shall be forever.

My kids didn't do anything blog worthy today. Boring kids! The only exciting thing we did was pick ice cubes up with a string. Try it. Put an ice cube in a cup of water. While you touch the end of the string to the floating ice cube sprinkle some salt on the ice cube where the string is touching. Then raise the ice cube out of the cup with the string. Its like magic. Actually the salt melts the cube just a little bit and then it freezes again right away which locks the string to the ice cube (like getting your tongue stuck to a pole in the winter time.) Pretty cool. Eh? I love homeschooling! Now why didn't I take a picture of that? Duh!

  1. Have you ever wondered why salt "melts" ice? In the north it is used on streets that have ice on them. The reason this works is because salt actually lowers the freezing temperature of water - thus "melting" it. It also lowers the boiling point - which is why some people add it to water when cooking pasta, rice, etc. The water will actually boil more quickly.
