COSTUMES, tire thingies and Oompa-proofing

 

These are two of the Oompas dressed up for their Halloween parties.  People are always remarking how beautiful my girls are, and I have to agree that they are indeed beautiful, but only to look at.  Once they open their mouths the illusion is lost and I find myself wondering what I had ever done to deserve children like them.  (Okay, don't say anything Mom and Dad.... I wasn't asking you!)

Dickidoo hasn't fixed my leaking tire yet.  I just keep filling it up as it gets low.  I filled it up as soon as I got home on my lunch break.  Did you know that there is a little screw that keeps the pressure in the air compressor and if its too loose, the compressor will not pump any air?  And did you know that if you hold the nozzle of an air compressor to your tire thingie and no air is pumping through the nozzle that you will merely release the remaining air from the tire?  Did you know that it takes less time to let all of the air out of a tire than it does to put the air back in?

I know all of that... now.  Grrrrrr!

This weekend we start child-proofing the house in anticipation of my Grand-Oompa's visit at New Years.... Woo Hoo!
