Tony's Torment

Poor Tony!!!


Moving when you're 13 years old. Starting a new school when you're going into the 8th grade (I know, I know, "it's the worst grade to move"...we've heard it all before and been through it with our oldest daughter when she entered 8th grade).


And now he is experiencing his first unexplainable moving phenomenon ...the missing box!


See if you can figure out what he is missing from this picture



Not too hard eh?




This is a big deal for Tony! According to him his whole future depends on getting this trampoline set up.


His future popularity...

Not many trampolines in our neighborhood that we've seen

Maybe it's because most back yards are the size of a postage stamp....






His future as a professional basketball player....

He sets the hoop up next to it and practices his dunks







His future health.....

If he doesn't find it soon he may just DIE!!!!

Oh the drama!



As for me, I've experienced my own share of unexplainable moving phenomenon.


there's the multiplying Tupperware phenomenon.....

I swear I don't know where it all came from!




and I have my own missing box issues....I spent hours cutting open boxes and searchin for this....I'm looking for those little "hook thingies" to hang your shower curtain.




this is driving me crazy cuz until I find this little item the kids have been showering in my bathroom and making a mess. And I know what some of you are saying...."just go buy some new ones already!!!" But next to my obsessiveness to order and cleanliness is my cheapness...I won't go out and buy something I know is around here somewhere! even if it's only a couple of bucks! Hey! I was raised in Holland, MI (and that should explain a lot...thank you very much!)




but you know what is even more frustrating?



finding that item in the temporary housing you've been living in for the last 4 months.....duhhhh!

I guess this wasn't so much an unexplainable moving phenomenon. Just my airheadedness.



I guess I'll go help Tony cut open a few more hundred boxes....

I am just now reading your blog and I am cracking up! (Only because I am feeling your pain - I HATE moving!)

We moved in here in 2000. I still have unopened boxes...

Hahaha....the Holland part? Love it. Do you know how I feel about the Dutch as a whole, lol? I think we need to sit down and have a nice long chat. :-)
