Too Serious

OK, I've made an excecutive decision. I want to write about funny or light-hearted things. My past posts have been way too serious. Boring even. Who wants to read that? I don't even want to write it......oh wait, I already did. Ok, well I'm turning over a new leaf. Making a change.

There are many funny and entertaining things about my life. I live with four children and a husband. 2/3's of our family are male. They do LOTS of funny stuff. I live in Africa! We see funny, entertaining, and sometimes mind-boggling things all the time. I want to write about that.

My laundry this a.m. is not funny, however. At the moment I can't use my dryer (long story involving the squirrely electricity here and lack of heavy-duty plug) so I have to hang out my laundry to dry just like 99.7% of the population here in Mozambique. I really like having a dryer as a back-up for many reasons though. Like today, for instance - it's raining! And there are 6 of us in our house. We generate tons of dirty clothes. My kids wear white shirts as part of their school uniforms. Yesterday I did a load of whites and my husband hung them out. I neglected to take them down last night and this a.m. I woke up to rain and soggy white clothes on the line. Ugh. That's not funny.

Ok, time for class! Only two more weeks of Portuguese class. Yippee
Bom Dia!

Hooray for funny stuff! :) But the other posts are good too. They show us your heart and what you're learning! You have to find the right blend of funny/serious... of course, how would I know? I haven't updated my blog in a while!
