Pallet Sofa Table4:22:00 PM
Hi there. Here's the second "Sunday Post"
Before I get to the sofa table, I must tell you about our fishy adventure that went down this week. When we began our homeschooling adventure back in September, we decided that a class pet was an absolute must. A fish being the obvious, easiest choice, we decided to bring red fishy home with us and enjoy the luxury of a "care free" little guy, who we later named "Shark Bait HoHaHa." (you know, from finding Nemo?) You must say it in the voice out loud just one time… I promise it will bring joy to your Sunday.
Shark Bait was a friendly little guy who didn't seem to mind when mommy forgot to feed him. He swam and did his thing. Up until last Sunday. I noticed he started slowing wayyyyy down and eventually stopped eating. He would lie on the bottom of the bowl and swim up occasionally for a gulp of air, all to slowly float backwards back down. After two pet store trips, one phone call, $30 dollars in "treats," remedies and a heater, he finally made one big leap in his glass bowl and called it quits. Wade and I were sitting on the couch last night when we heard the big splash… then downwards he went. The girls were in bed already and I actually tried to wake up my oldest, Ej to say her goodbyes by the porcelain throne to her beloved fishy friend. She, half asleep and without much concern, waved goodbye and told him to have fun in fish heaven and back to sleep she went.
Not much to our surprise, the true dramatics happened this morning when the girls realized that the glass bowl was empty and Shark Bait had mysteriously went to heaven. I think they got really confused when daddy told them that mommy had flushed him down the toilet. I guess in their little minds they thought he would miraculously float up to heaven. Makes sense actually. Kind of wish it worked that way.
So today, we brought home Shark Bait TwoHaHa. Hopefully, now that we have the thermometer, the heater and the treats galore, we will have more success with this princess. Yes, the girls insisted that we pretend our male fish is a girl and Wade insisted we name her Shark Bait TwoHaha.
