Humor in chandeliers

Today was one of those days that was filled with many ups and downs. I could write about so many things, but I think I am just going to keep this light and share the most interesting part of my day. After all, it is important to find the humor and today humor did me a favor and found me. As I am running and pushing the jogging stroller, I see this in front of me. "What?!!" OK I know I am extremely sleep deprived but I am pretty sure I haven't created this in my head.

As I get closer I realize, no you really are staring at a chandelier hanging from a tree on the entrance road to your neighborhood.

I think to myself, "some kid is going to get it for taking this from their house" and at this point I am still running. I get even closer and smell spray paint "hmm that's funny." Now my brain processes things really slow while I run, I will be the first to admit to this brain delay. I finally catch up as I get farther down the road and the image and smell become one thought... "Oh my, someone actually hung that thing from a tree on the main entrance road of the neighborhood to spray paint it!"

The funniest part about all of this is that later it occurs to me to run back so I can get a picture before it isn't there. When I stop in front of it, I see this women standing in her doorway looking through the bushes intensely staring at me. Suddenly I realize this chandelier belongs to her, and she thinks I might be trying to steal it. Now if I wasn't exhausted from running it really would have been funny if I had touched it and started to admire it and pretend to untie it. I can only imagine what would have happened next. See in this amazing gated community I live in, we aren't trying to keep the criminals out, but the crazies in!

With that thought Happy Passover and Happy Easter to those who celebrate. Did you spray paint your chandeliers? Because your company IS going to notice!

Gratitude List
* Lisa Kelly looking out for me
* David my wonderful almost 90 year old friend also looking out for me
* Bean's head injury being minor
* Running in beautiful weather outside
* The butterfly that flew by my face while I was running
* Sharing moments about parenting with honest Moms so we all got to laugh a lot!
* Tadpole my peaceful happy baby

Running Update: Ran 5 miles today outside in the beautiful weather and I am proud of myself. Bean is extremely smart and this can lead to problems while running such as "Mommy stop sign" "Mommy I said stop you not listening to me!" He even decided to start leaving a trail of Tadpole's toys in the road. Pull-ups: no gym today
