Go ahead laugh....

I am sitting here; blog surfing, wasting time, not being particularly productive... But you know what? I deserve it!
This week is spring break for my under 18 crew. That means I have 4 kids home (while ALL their friends got to go away on vacation... or at least that is what they keep telling me.) We have already painted Easter egg candles (pics. at a later date), played several video game tournaments, and taken the dogs on a bunch of CHILLY walks. So today a trip to the library was put on the agenda. It started out uneventful enough- the three who can read, scattered about the library picking out books, as I chased Will up and down the children's section's aisles.
Unfortunately, after Alaina had checked out her selections, I asked her to follow Will so I could pick out a couple of books for myself ( yes I am deluded enough to think I might have time to read them). Unfortunately, there is a side door in the children's section with SEVERAL , LARGE, RED signs indicating that it is an "EMERGENCY Exit Only- Do Not Open". Well , as I mentioned Will can not read - so he ran to said door and shoved all 35 pounds of his weight on the bar which opens the door,and... next thing I know the alarms started blaring. ( NO , I did NOT get pictures/ a video for the blog...) Yes, they got the alarms off before the authorities arrived, yes, we beat a hasty retreat. So- go ahead laugh...
OK- That's enough.

Will sounds a little like me when I was that age. The BIG RED Button on the escalators called to me... Push Push Push... and then people started falling. Oops...
