I am still amazed that these balloons are still inflated and floating after 3 days

We got them Friday from my welcome party. 

I will never quite get over my belief that balloons only last a few hours because I grew up with them only lasting a few hours.

My Mom didn’t like balloons, she never told any of us though.  If we got a balloon we would tie it to our closet door or bed and it would float happily while we slept.  When we woke up in the morning the balloon would be a deflated husk and garbage.

That was just the way it was.  Balloons didn’t last overnight. 

I kept believing this until I had my own daughter.   Her balloons lasted so much longer!  What the heck?  Did they make advances in balloon technology?

That is when Mom admitted her big secret.

She had been sneaking into our rooms when we were asleep and had bitten tiny holes in our balloons so they would deflate overnight.  Then we would throw them away and her house would no longer be polluted by the presence of a balloon.  We also didn’t get them very often,  because my sister and I couldn’t figure out why other kids would want to waste “treat” money on a balloon that only lasts a few hours. 

To this day I am still surprised when I see a balloon still inflated when I wake up in the morning.

Sunday morning.

"Whew! He is a force of nature! "

Corvidae30 and I, trying to haul ourselves out of bed. Bedraggled and catching our breath after a wake up call from 13.

Right now he is barking and talking mile a minute, while running around the house.

Spent the day looking for a place for 18, his girlfriend and her sister a home in another city when they go to University in Sept.

Great view from the University.

I was at a unit with some chatty members.  My staff started to worry about me so they created this missing poster and stuck it on my door.
They even tried to phone the place I was at, but when I asked the members if they needed to pick up the phone they said “Nah, probably not important.”
Apparently maintenance guys were sent out to look for me.
