I just think they should be bigger! Call be prejudice if you like, but I want/need my police officers to be bigger than a twelve year old. I also don't think I should be able to lift them off the ground. What is this insanity I speak of? Well, that would be the delightful "boy" that pulled me over for speeding on Saturday night. Just think of how secure I felt watching this tiny human, not much larger than my 10 year old, walk to my window to start the tongue-lashing. I seriously don't care what anyone says about how small people can disarm criminals, etc. I just want my "protectors" to be big, semi-tall and STRONG! I don't think that's too much to ask.

Anyway, I wasn't speeding on purpose, especially 67 in a 45. I plain and simply wasn't paying attention. Clearly, honesty doesn't get you anywhere with a twelve year old - cop wannabe. I guess I'm just bitter that this KID was yelling at me. I know I'm at fault. That's not even an issue. Yes, I'll be paying the overly expensive ticket, but doggone it!!! Give me a man to write that there ticket, not a freakin' boy!

Okay. Let's move on to bigger and better subjects. WE SOLD THE HOUSE! The sale is complete! Check is in the bank, etc. How awesome is that? We listed the house not even 4 full months ago. So, for all of you who were skeptical over my ranting that I thought it would be gone in 6 months - I TOLD YOU SO!!! Ha! It's a glorious feeling, let me tell you! Now we can focus more on this house and all of the animals that will be entering the homestead in the next two months. There's also the little detail of us refinancing this house and everything that entails. Life is busily fantastic!

On the scrapping front, my sketch blog is being featured on Molly Peckham's blog. She is an amazing scrapper with a great blog and gorgeous children. Thanks for the plug, Molly! Go check out her work and her other sketchy shares for even more inspiration.

Here's a little layout I did for my sketch blog regarding the release of our ducks.



Until my next update, have a great day!
