Totally Shocking!!!

Did ya know that while you are shopping at WalMart you can continuously be shocked by the carts?? By the time I got to the check out after my 1/2 hour shopping trip, I made a comment to the cashier that I was having a hard time getting to my $$ because my right hand was numb! I explained I kept getting shocked by the bar on the cart. I was seriously getting ready to head back to the laundry aisle to stock up on fabric softener!!

She said, "Oh, it's just your cart. It isn't grounded. See that cart up there with the wire by the wheels? It is grounded. You should look for one of those when you shop."

What??? I've never heard of such a thing. But, be sure that I WILL be looking for a little wire dangling down as I choose my cart for now on!! I am usually shocked when I get to the check out...but unfortunately it's NOT because of my cart!! google's not a new thing!!

*Things That Make Me Smile*

~ Laughter of my children.

~ Listening to Joseph use his imagination to play and seeing how embarrassed he gets when he sees me watching him.

~ How Brian straightens the living room before he goes to bed.

~ Seeing the kids reading just for enjoyment and not cause they have to.

~ That my younger kids think "hate, stupid and shut up" are BAD words.

~ That the older kids still hesitate to say those words and won't say them around the little ones.

~ Recycling - our family of 6 only took one trash bag to the curb this week.

~ Cuddle time w/Anna...wrestle time with Wes and time w/Jess.

~ Seeing Brian walk thru the door with a polar pop just for me.

~ Our maple tree that is the last to turn and the last to lose its golden leaves!!

Yep, I even smiled as I typed them...What makes YOU smile?!?!
