Heat & Electric

January 11th, 2013 at 07:24 am

Yesterday my little LM (age 7) was pissy, and threatened to "waste money." He then asked me if I paid the electric bill. Because he could waste electricity.


Actually, I was not amused at the time. But I am laughing today. I didn't catch that part because I was peeved he was threatening me. But BM caught the "Do you pay your electricity bill?" Where did that come from? We have been watching Bunheads. (Basically, another Gilmore Girls show). On the last episode we watched, one of the main characters was paying her bills. The "had to" bills were paid twice a year. The electric bill was mentioned. We of course pointed out how silly her bill paying method was.



Mr. Snake went home, so we turned off the heat. Phew!! We somehow managed to keep him alive for 3 weeks. Today his last frozen mouse goes back to school. No more mice in the freezer. BM's room can go back to 55-ish degrees or however he likes it. I am surprised he didn't complain more about how warm his room was. He likes it cold. I didn't turn on the heat this morning and was fine. Like I didn't even notice it was 10 degrees colder than it has been the last 3 weeks. I am glad to see I haven't adjusted to warm mornings.


LM has a birthday party tomorrow - we already have several birthay presents in a stash (Some are re-gifts, others just stocked up while on sale). So, the cost for a birthday gift will be -0-.

    So. it sounds like you were taking care of the class pet over holiday break?

    We had to care for a tank-full of guppies and guppy babies. I was nervous about the babies, but they all survived.

    That is so funny! I read it to my DH and think I'm going to tell my sister who in December told me her newly 5 year old grandchild was wailing fearfully, "I don't WANT to go over the fiscal cliff!" (That is when my sister told my Dad he was going to have to take a break from FOX news to preserve his great-grandchild's childhood security and innocence.)

    I didn't realize schools had a class pet. Maybe they don't in our area, but that is a neat idea.

    That is pretty funny (although I can see how it wasn't at the time).

    Congrats on keeping the pet alive! I bet that classroom pet is a hard sell for some parents to have in their home, considering lots of people are afraid of snakes. I must admit they creep me out a bit, but I'd be up for trying to show one some love if asked for my kids.

    @Joan - LOL.

    @twest - just depends on the teacher - BM's teacher got a sweet deal - the owner will pay the vet bills and take him back for summer. I can't say I ever had a class pet growing up? I think this is the first one for my kids.

    @ceejay - I don't mind snakes, but there will *never* be a spider kept as a pet in my house. HA!

    I'd be quite happy to see the "pet" go back to where it came from. Signed, do NOT like snakes. Smile

    Thinking about Jim Stafford's song,"I don't like spiders or snakes..."
