Gotta Love BooMama!

She’s hilarious. I hope y’all all know her already, but if you don’t just go ahead and bookmark her under "SuperFunny Blogs." What, don’t have that folder yet? Go ahead and make one – this post isn’t going anywhere.

Tomorrow (Friday) is her Tour of Homes. If I can find that magical gray cord that runs from my laptop to the camera and makes my participation possible, well, I will. Otherwise,  you know, I won’t.

Note to my Mom, also known here as "J-Mom":

Hi. Yes, that missing gray cord issue would explain the recent lack of baby pictures. Oops. I’ll find it, or get a new one soon, so don’t worry. I know, I know. How can you lose one of those anyway? Doesn’t it just sort of hang out in the general laptop vicinity? Well, usually. And if I really knew the answer to that it wouldn’t be lost. Actually, you aren’t wondering how I lost it at all, seeing as how you’ve seen my house and noticed it’s Bermuda Triangle effect on, well, everything.

So regardless of my maybe participation in BooMama’s tour, I wanted to encourage y’all to join in. I love that one of her goals is to show how grateful we are for these homes that will be on tour.

How true that is for us! Mike and I have lived in all different kinds and sizes of homes and been so immensely blessed by each of them. I have many fond memories in what we call the Drug Dealer Rent House. No, we weren’t dealing drugs, but the neighbors were and so our kids couldn’t go outside.

But WITHIN our walls – what a sweet home we had! And the mice, too. The mice had a sweet home there too, now that I think of it…  Anyway. I’m humbled by the blessing each of our homes has turned out to be. Thank you to BooMama for giving us all a fun way to be reminded of that!

While it’s somewhat, um, pitiful that I’m commenting on a post about me (and the lone commenter, at that) :-) , I did want to say thanks, Kelsey, for taking time to post this. We too had a Drug Dealer Rental House – complete with a rat the size of a raccoon in the attic – and we made some of our happiest memories there. Now I’m off to catch up on all your posts that I’ve missed the last few days…love your heart!

I just found BooMama recently through Jeana. I want to do the tour thing, but my house is a total disaster right now! Seriously embarrassingly disastrous!

Speaking of drug dealer houses, I live in a drug dealer neighborhood. Yup, drug deals down on the corner, gun shots down the street (my sweet Geek tries to convince me they’re fireworks, but it’s been almost a month since the 4th now…I’m not buying it), booming car stereos, the works.

Good times…good times.

How could anyone NOT love Boo. She’s got just about the biggest heart in the whole world. And she’s seriously funny. I read BooMama first every single morning just to get my day started right.

Geekwif, I did a post about what a “home” is. Nobody cares. The people who follow you just want to see you in your world. I promise you yours isn’t the only house out there that’s less than spotless!

Kelsey, you’re one funny lady, too. You and BooMama were my first two links when I started my blog.

Geekwif, I could post a photo of my bedroom if it would make you feel any better. It’s a total disaster! Come to think if it, if I did, maybe the government would send me some relief funds.

So cute. My little guy fell asleep just like that one time, and of course I snapped his pic, too. Nice warm home.

Holy Momma, don’t feel bad everyone loses their USB cables I do it all the time and I have about 5 or 6 of them (everything you buy comes with one). I even have a card reader (it reads the card that your pictures are stored on) and I lose that as well.
