Should I Change My Blog Title?

Having at least one boy in my household before the arrival of Nathan, prepared me for anything I may find in my washer or dryer. I have found rocks, pens, crayons, seashells, paper, gum, candy, and an assortment of food particles. He taught me early on to check every pocket, button hole, nook and cranny so I wouldn't have an ugly scene awaiting me upon laundry exiting the dryer. It's just regular routine for me now, but I have NEVER found anything like I found Wednesday night. I was removing the clothes from the washer and placing them into the dryer methodically and then

when I reached down to pick-up another clothing item to place in the dryer,

imagine my surprise to find this:

Yes ladies, this is a banana. The actual banana that was in my washer. It went through an entire washing and spinning cycle and did not un-peel, de-peel, ummmm what is the word I'm looking for? Anyway, I have to say this is the first time I have been shocked in quite awhile. I picked it up and immediately placed it on this plate for photo purposes. I only wished I would have thought to take the picture before I took it out, but I was in a state of shock and removed it quickly to make sure I was actually touching what I was seeing.

I couldn't help but think of Shannon at Rocks In My Dryer mother of 3 boys and the cute header she use to display. I feel pretty certain she has found enough rocks in her dryer to landscape a couple of neighborhoods. A very cute inspiration for blog titlement. Hmmmmm......Bananas In My Washer..........

I don't think I'll change my title anytime soon.

Yes, Denise! You guessed it! Anita is coming down to thaw out!! I am so excited. We didn't have much time together back in December, but we are planning to soak up every minute available this time. Will it be the beach, mountains, military base? Who knows?!

I have a lot going on at church as we are getting ready for our Easter drama. I have been working on the scenery. More particular the tomb. I plan to take pics to share. I have to run out again because I have a meeting at 6.

Easter! What a glorious time of year! Thank you Lord for giving us everlasting life through your death, burial, and resurrection! We can never repay you for such an awesome sacrifice.
