You all remember that I had an ugly - ok hideous - phone jack thingy in my front yard. It is about 4 inches by 4 inches square and about 30 or so inches tall. Oh - and it is a "lovely" shade of vomit green. I have been looking for a wishing well to hide it. Those run in the many hundreds of dollars. I am too cheap to spend that kind of money on a phone jack, anyone named Jack or even jack sh*t for that matter...
Well, I found this to cover it:
#1 Son didn't have school today so we went shopping. We were poking around Target. I rounded a corner and there it was. It was the last one. #1 Son and I hemmed and hawed. Then, we tossed it into the shopping cart. The pagoda has a tiny flaw so they gave me 10% off. A bargain - there is nothing better than a bargain!! When we got home, #1 Son helped me lift the pagoda over the phone jack. We held our breath and slid it over... When it fit perfectly, we cheered, gave high fives and did the happy dance across the front lawn.
We, at the Crossing, get all excited about the little things in life. Mr. Bug actually ran out to meet me when I got home today and complimented me on this little treasure. He was thrilled with my purchase! (I was thrilled that he noticed it in the first 24 hours it was out there!) Little LadyBug's reaction was priceless! Her face lit up and she said, "It's perfect, Mom! That's so cool!" Heck, if I can impress my 5th grader with a lawn ornament, I've really done something - I dunno what. but it's something!
