Issues, anyone?

When I went to tuck in Harry last night, I saw this sign on his bedroom door.  It says, "Half price issue solver.  Come now.  And rocks on sale!"  I laughed so hard.  Harry told me that he was one of those guys who tells you to lay on the couch and you tell him your issues and he solves them (maybe he'll follow in my footsteps).  So, he sat on the top bunk, I lied on the bottom bunk and I told him my issues.  He was GREAT!  I have another appointment tonight!

P.S.  I do find the sign interesting for so many reasons but ironically, his two chosen professions mirror ours---Dave is a geologist (the rocks) and I am an"ishue solver."  Harry really wants to earn some money.  Sunday, he scrubbed all of the kitchen baseboards.  I like this job better.

  13. Wow, if he's free this weekend Harry is welcome to come do my baseboards for some extra cash. That's a job I'd rather not do.

  19. That is hilarious! How does Harry even know what psychoanalysis is? Maybe he reads the New Yorker jokes...And issues too. He's a creative one! I think I may need to make an appointment too ( :

  20. Okay, tell H I'll take some rocks and a session :)
    So sweet.
    My son constantly talks about following in his musician dad's footsteps and I think it's so sweet plus he probably will :) He definitely inherited his talent. He is also convinced that b/c they look so much alike they have the same brain. His words, not mine.

  21. Hi Kim,

    Sorry I haven't been in touch lately. I am so busy! I have been checking in with you though. Just no time to type!

    That is so adorable. That Harry seems like a crack up! Reading that this morning started my day off right and gave me a big smile.

    Isn't 6-7 such a cute age for boys? I am just loving the stage Jack is in right now. (6 1/2)

    Tell Harry I have a few issues that he can help me with. If he is anything like his mom, he has a great future ahead of him!

    Hope you are all well and getting ready for summer!

    Can't wait to hear about where you are traveling. I didn't realize you had a fear of flying. I will be praying for you. YOu can do it! I hope it is Colorado!

    Much love,
    Lisa W.

  31. Hi!
    I love your new fun Blog look!!!! And, of course I love Harry's sign!!!!! The difference over here, is you can have "Free Fashion Advice" from Ainsley, or you can buy lemonade!!!!

  36. What a sweetie!

    Somewhere out there is a girl who will be lookin' for a rock-lovin, issue-solvin' man and Harry will be perfect for her.

    Until then, I hope he spends LOTS of time helping the ones he is closest to.

    I think your new blog look is going to be great!

    Much love,
