i had to laugh this morning as i stood in the middle of my den contemplating freshening up the white paint on the wood-work... as i looked around the room in an attempt to figure the amount of paint i would need, my eyes stopped at the top corner of door that leads to the deck. there it was... the security system i "installed" two years ago!!!
long story short...
katherine invited 23 girls to a sleep-over to kick off spring break when she was in the 7th grade. not knowing how i was going to keep them all safely in the house (it was a big thing to "sneak out" at that age; which terrified me), i went to our local hardware store and bought a stick-up door alarm... ONE!!!
so, i stuck it up really high on the facing of the door. i told all the girls once they arrived that i had set the "security system"; which was a laser beam that went in both directions around all the walls, windows, and doors in the house. further, i told them that if the laser beam were to be broken by opening a door that the police would be here immediately.
lol, i told them all that so that they would know that they were safe (reverse psychology!!!). it worked:D that $10 security system was worth its weight in gold in a pinch!!!
after realizing the real need, we have, since then, installed a security system... but, i hadn't taken down the little stick-up one because i figured the adhesive would mess up the paint underneath it.
well, it's coming down this week, as it is time to paint:b
love and blessings,
