Wow, even after my revelation about the guys on Million Dollar listing...

...here you are again! Hooray! I thought we had parted ways forever.

And since we haven't I want to share what possibly could be one of the worlds most uplifting stories. Ever.

Not to bring up something extremely painful, but you might recall back in September when I lost my precious, precious miniature hardhat in a horrific accident at the Home Depot. If you don't remember (or we didn't know each other wayyyy back then) here's a link to that post you might want to read it over real quick like. I'll be happy to wait right here for you!

Are you back now? Do you need to get a kleenex? I know it is a truly emotional story.

But there is good news.

So dry your pretty little eyes.

My son got me a replacement.

Actually he got me ten replacements.

And although they are not exactly like the original hardhat they are pretty darned close. See? And now I am happy again because I realize that my son does in some small way like me. And respect me. And well, dare I say it, actually kinda/sorta loves me just a little bit.

So much so, in fact, that he had to run these little hardhats down through a promotional company who wanted to sell him 250 of them. He told me he actually thought about it but then the salesperson thankfully offered to send him some samples.

So I have my hard-hat back! And since it's kind of a squishy, foamy hardhat and not like the hard hardhat I had early (geez, that is quite a sentence, isn't it?) I think it might actually be a good thing.

Because I think if I drop my keys into the toilet at Home Depot again they might actually float.

Woo hoo.

I told you this was an uplifting story.

Now aren't you glad you read my blog today?

Sigh...

Always glad I've been here and read! I love the key chain and that was very sweet of your son. That had to be one of those "yes I did okay as a parent" moments.
