Highs and Lows

Last night at dinner, Jim suggested we play a family game called "Highs and Lows". It's where each person tells about the high point and low point of their day. So Benjamin went first and said his low point was Social Studies class because it's boring. His high point was lunch. Well, he is 9 years old, so I guess that's a pretty good day. Jim's lows were that his mother is in the hospital with pneumonia and that he had a heck of a time with the new window treatments yesterday and ended up returning them to the store. UGH! His high point was when Benjamin and I came home....aww! :) My low point of the day was when I was notified by our Arlington, VA office that the monitor I shipped up to them was damaged...broken by UPS. It was the FIRST time I did not insure a package...I was in a rush and forgot. UGH! My high point was a funny moment on the drive home with Benjamin. See, he was wearing a teal, black and white plaid short-sleeved shirt...very sharp looking. We were on the interstate when I saw a really bright teal Ford Taurus...and realized it was the same color as his shirt! I started laughing and Benjamin and I joked that I should pull up beside the driver and point to his shirt and then point to the car....but we didn't. It turned out the driver was a young girl and she had "Hello Kitty" stickers on her windows...and we started laughing all over again. Maybe you had to be there, but it was a good high for me to have at the end of a long day.
(Note - this is not the real car, I just found a picture of one online)


  1. Well, I'm glad you explained that. I had visions of you and Benjamin driving all over RIvergate area trying to find a car the same color to take a picture of.

    Sorry about Jim's mom. Do they give her a pneumonia shot?

  2. High point. Uncle Gale sent good news.
    Low point. I'm bored.

  3. Mom - I only put that statement in there because Kim said something about the license plate on the van when I posted the picture on that blog. :)
    Not sure what they have done for Jo Ann. We're going to visit her on Saturday after B's game and hopefully find out some more info then.

    Dad - I always have work you can do anytime you are bored. :)
