Another MODNAR Post

Sometimes RANDOM/MODNAR is all that will come out of my brain.  I’m hoping things will get better and I’ll have more ideas for posts once these first couple of weeks of school are behind me.  It takes a little while to get back into the swing of things.

MODNAR #1 – The heat index has been so high lately that we’ve only been able to take our classes outside to play twice since school started.  We were coming back in yesterday, and one of my sweetie pies said, “OH!  I just might fall out from all this hot heat!”  She has a flair for the dramatic, but I thought is was cute.

MODNAR #2 – It appears that I’ve been relieved of my weekend maid duties.  David has hired a cleaning service to come tomorrow and give the house a deeeeeeeep de-dirtying.  What can I say?  The man is a saint.  A saint who is tired of living like Fred Sanford.  I don’t think the two chicks with a broom will be regulars at our house, but it sure will be nice to come home tomorrow to a neat, clean house.  Of course, it will take Tater Tot and Small Fry approximately three minutes to make it look like a tornado came through.

MODNAR #3 – Tater Tot has a new bicycle.  A real one with training wheels and everything and he was SO EXCITED TO GET IT!  He asked David to show him how to ride it, so David, thinking he was being cute, sat on the thing.  Guess what?  Bikes for four-year-olds aren’t made to support a grown man’s weight.  He broke the thing right there in the driveway.  Just bent the heck out of the training wheels.  Tater Tot forgave him in return for a popsicle, which in this heat makes everything better.

MODNAR #4 – Do you have a recurring dream?  I do.  It’s the one where all of my teeth fall out.  Every time I have that dream, I wake up scared out of my wits.  Wonder what the dream means.  Ideas?  Anyone?  Anyone?

MODNAR #5 – I know I sound like the blogger who called, “New Design!” but the new version of Tater Tales is on its way.  Everything will soon be transferred to the new address, and then it’ll be a done deal.  Perhaps it will happen this weekend.  If not, definitely early next week.

And that concludes Random Post #294.

Have a lovely weekend.

    I read an article once that explained that teeth falling out was a pretty common dream, so you’re not alone. And while the exact details escape me, I believe they decided that the gist of it meant that you were feeling anxiety about 1) growing older, 2) change in general, 3) loss of power or control over something. Any of that sound like it rings a bell?

    PS- Can David hire someone to come de-dirtify my house too? I am so incredibly jealous!

    Marian—-I used to dream that a lot as a child and teenager—-they wouldn’t just fall out, they would crack in several pieces and come out that way——then new ones would appear only to fall out themselves. As a kid, that was like the worst nightmare—-I would also dream I was running with my dad—we were holding hands, and were running from “something” —I never knew what, but it was just awful.
    Now, if I dreamed about my teeth falling out–the anxiety about growing old would almost be too late——almost, mind you.
