Wednesday Words: Owen Family Circus

A few words courtesy of the Owen Family Circus

February 2/24/13
In one room, "The Gambler" by Kenny Rogers is playing (courtesy of my husband). In another room, "Tonight is going to be a good night" by the Black Eyed Peas (courtesy of my 11 year old). I am in a room that is joined to both (no doors).  I am having trouble putting together sentences.

Sunday 3/3/13
Conversation of the morning-
Seth: "The first record I ever had was this" (referring to K Rodgers, The Gambler)
David: "What do you mean, record?"

4:30  in afternoon
My husband just snuck outside with the kids BB gun. I'm concerned but mostly, amused.
He is trying to scare a stray animal.
He said, "I won't shoot anything that lives. I mean, that's alive."

My daughter has a "quiet headache." It started the moment when we walked into the library. She whispered, "I just got a quiet headache. It's too quiet in here." When we got home, I asked if her headache was gone. She said, "No, it's still too quiet." I'm not worried. The boys will be home in shifts starting in about an hour. That should take care of her lack-of-noise problem.

3/6/13 7:35 a.m.
"Momma, you need to call the haircut guys." Thomas, age 7
"Elsie wants to be a boy."

3/13/13 7:30 am
Timely question-of-the-day from my 7 year old:  "Momma, what does stressed mean?"

I thought, 'are you even looking at me?'

I answered with an explanation about having to get something done under pressure, either because there is little time or things aren't going the right way.   I can't quite remember what I said ...

Waking up at 7, when your 11 year old likes to leave the house at 7 because school starts at 7:30 makes me stressed.

Have a wonderful, Word-filled Wednesday! 
“The law of the LORD is perfect, restoring the soul; The testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. The precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart; The commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.” (Psa 19:7-8)

ooh, I love Word Filled Wednesday! My favorite one from my house this week was from Natalie. She was accepted to go to high school at The School of the Arts in Tacoma starting in the fall. (Huge!) Anyway, she said, "I feel like I am going to know so much about Tacoma. I'll be a Tacomanonian!" Had to write that one down.
