Um Say what?

T and me are at home together this week with my holidays and his school break. Yesterday it was announced they were going to have the kids do remote learning for a week returning to in-person learning Jan. 17. With how contagious the Omicron strain the teachers and school divisions wanted to ensure safety was first.

My first attempt to wake him this morning was just me jabbing him to make sure he was still breathing. Why would I do this? Thomas. And his crying. Running back and forth.

My second attempt scared him. Again. I leaned over his bed, looming and stared at him. When that was not enough I said his name. His eyes fluttered open and his face disappeared into his head and chin. As I roared with laughter telling him I wish I had a camera to take picture of his face he informed me I was in no way, shape or form funny. 🤣🤣🤣🤣

Even as I write that I am crying with laughter.

T came meandering into the kitchen after I told him to use bathroom as I want to go in for a soak. At the moment we have milk and water to drink. T had milk with his breakfast. I watch as he goes to the cupboard, opens the door before I say:

If you are getting milk do not get another cup use the other one.

T closed the door and walked passed me.

Were you seriously going to get another cup for milk?



Stating The Obvious

With the store being under construction and things moving around it is understandable that there is going to be some confusion for our customers.
I have begun to tease that for Christmas we thought we would make it a treasure hunt for our customers.
And we throw in the exercise for free.
However there comes a time when it becomes a little too much.
I can only smile so many times at the same things.
The other day K and I were talking and I was telling her my latest pet peeve is customers saying to me how much the place has changed.
We have made so many changes.
As though this is news to me.
If I were allowed to say what I thought it would be this:
The store has changed?
Are you sure?
I’m sorry but I think you need to show me what you think has changed.
And not sure if any recall that a few months back I had a customer call me about the possibility of becoming locked in our bathroom.
I had reassured her that no matter what we would be able to hear her and free her.
Yesterday I got a call from the RCMP.
A customer was locked in the bathroom and could I please go rescue her.
Off I went.
I knocked on the door and told the customer to step away from the door.
Not sure if she heard step towards the door but as it flew open it nearly knocked her over and I leapt to catch her.
Then this morning.
I received a call from a customer.
Again she was locked in the bathroom.
At least she stood back from the door as I barrelled in.
