Life is nice when you're Cozie

Ok, so I'm a blockhead

I came home to the most wonderful surprise tonight.  My cousin Luke, whom I have not had the privilege of seeing for many months now due to traveling, was at our house.  He is 12 and will be 13 on either the 20th or 21st…I can’t remember…One day is my parents’ anniversary and the other is Luke’s birthday.  Anyways,
we’re not a real hugging type of family, but when he smiled at me and
said “Hi, Coie!” with sincere happiness, I wanted to just hug him.  He came over to my mom and gave her a hug.  I didn’t want to freak him out, so I just stood still, and then he walked over and gave me a hug.  He made my day.  😀   Thanks
Luke (notice I’ve refrained from calling you your nickname.)! 
Please stop by his blog and wish him an early  happy birthday!


Observations of the day:


1)      My car runs better with gas in it

2)      Skunk and pizza smells don’t mix well together (I’m trying to help Uncle Disco Doug out here)


Other nonsense:


We’ve got all these cool wooden blocks and I was playing with them with my 2yo brother.  This one block though, is totally evil and has a brain or something.  It’s got these two little holes in it, about 1 inch apart.  So, I put my pinkie fingers in each one.  And couldn’t move them.  I started to panic.  TOS staff was coming out in a week and I got my fingers stuck in a block.  How was I supposed to eat?  Or drive?  Or do anything?  I started thinking of ways dad could remove it…I thought of his skilsaw. 


Ok, and before I go any further I’d like to inform you of the debate I had with myself about writing skilsaw.  Because, if I write it the way it’s SUPPOSED to be: skilsaw then all the people who don’t know what power tools are would think I spelled it wrong.  And if I wrote it the WRONG way: skillsaw then all the power tool people would think I was a dumb girl who didn’t know what a saw was.  Ok, finished.


Back to the ways dad could remove this evil leech—er, block (after he got home in a few hours- I was babysitting).  I thought of the torch, but decided I wanted to keep my fingers.  So, I finally came to the conclusion that I was going to just pull it off.  I asked my sister Ryann to pull on the block.  Owww, I could feel my fingers popping out of their sockets.  “STOP!,”  I yelled.  It wasn’t working!  After a few more minutes of tugging, grunting, whining, and panic, I successfully removed my fingers…with the help of my sister.  😀


Moral of this nonsense: buy blocks with big holes in them and learn the names of your dad’s tools.

    Yep, you are a blockhead…

    Another lesson:

    Don’t stick your fingers in holes. I learned that lesson when I was little. Remind me to tell you the story one day. 😀

    Ok, that does it. What’s all this nonsense in your last post about you turning 20 in three years? That’s baloney and you know it. You’ll turn 20 when I tell you that you can turn 20 and you can SURE as bet it aint gonna be in no three years. 20 my foot.

    I did not know that.

    I thought it was spelled skillsaw, but it actually makes total sense because that way when you see the thingy at the store and it says skillsaw you will know it is a totally fake knock off generic. Yeah that makes so much sense.

    Ryann MUST love you to have helped you with that! What fun she could’ve had at your expense!!! Reminds me of those chinese handcuffs…if you don’t know what I’m talking about, as your momsie as I’m sure she must’ve tortured or been tortured by Gena with these at some point in her life.

    Next time you could also try running hands and stuck block in some extra cold water to help your fingers shrink.

    Now I have to check out Disco Doug’s blog…

    hehe, don’t do that. running water over wood does one and only one thing. Makes it swell — much faster than your fingers will shrink. 😉

    David, I had the same thoughts about the wood swelling before my fingers would get a chance to shrink. lol

    Felicity- Yep, I got your e-mail…I’ll be getting started soon on your template. I’m still trying to figure out how to make soccer and pink go together. 😉

    Thanks for the sweet words about Luke. He still tells me to this day that *you* are his best friend. It means a lot to him seeing things like this. He’ll grow out of his “little kid stuff” one day, and he’ll remember that you loved him even when he was a pain.

  15. HI there..

    Hey how are you? I am happy to be able to keep in contact.. How do you like your new place? Take care and kiss the littler kids for me, then go to the mirror and kiss you too! I love you…grammagwen
