Night Out

Clint & I went out to dinner tonight with my mom & dad. We went to Olive Garden & had a good time. They gave us some good ideas on things we can do to make our family run smoother. I am just so tired from all the many things that I am in charge of to keep our family& home running. We came up with a plan that will hopefully give me more free time, Clint more "fun" time with the kids, & give the kids more time to (hopefully) entertain themselves. After our delicious dinner we were walking to the car when I get this frantic call from home. Addison is upset and I couldn't really understand what she was saying, but I heard something about Jarom being trapped in the bathroom. I get all worried and ask her to slow down and tell me again what is going on. Finally I understand that she was telling me that there is a big roach in the hallway in front of the bathroom & Jarom is trapped inside because he doesn't want to open the door in case the roach gets him. Meanwhile the dogs are trying to eat it until Addison starts to really scream and then they go hide under the table. My mom tells them to go get some hairspray and spray the roach so it won't move. Then we tell Addison (because Jarom won't come out of the bathroom, all we hear is him screaming) to get the vacuum and suck it up. Addison tries to suck it up with the vacuum but it won't move because it is now stuck to the floor. They had gotten Aussie Sprunch spray and boy was it stuck to the floor. I told her that she has to scrape it a little with the hose so that it will come up. She says, "nuh - uh". So I say $5.00 to whoever sucks it up, cause I don't think the kids will move until that thing is gone. So out comes Jarom and he sucked that roach right up. I think that $5.oo is a small price to pay. When we got home the kids showed us where the roach was. You can see where the sprunch spray went all around it. I took a picture so hopefully you can see it. Just squint your eyes a little and turn your head this way and that. It was so sad to hear their screams but once I knew they were safe it was kinda funny. Thanks for the fun time, we love you mom & dad!

That is the funniest story I have ever heard! I hate roaches too, so I can just imagine being in their shoes at the time. I would have been screaming too and standing on top of the toilet! :) I don't even think I would have sucked it up in the vacuumm for $50! I think Addison should get $5.00 just for getting close enough to spray the thing! This stuff only happens at the Fincher home! :)

If they think it is funny to read, they should have actually heard the screaming! It was hysterical! Thanks for the evening out and the entertainment. Your picture turned out great! Love the drawing.

Yeah, I wish that I could have heard it! They are so funny. I probably would have been doing the same thing. Addison was pretty brave to get close enough to spray it, or did she take the lid off and just pour?

I have tears in my eyes from laughing. I can just so relate to Addie and Jarom... I don't think any amount of money could have got me to come out of that bathroom! Tooooo funny.
