Did you know?

Did you know that bats can't chew through steel wool? That's what you're supposed to use to fill small holes that would allow bat entrance into a building you'd rather not have them enter.

Did you know that I got fired from my calling as a RS teacher right when we got new exciting manuals?

Did you know that I'm a big sissy when it comes to mice? They freak me right out.

Did you know that I blog stalk a guy named Andy who is taking a year off to go camping all over the country? He's currently in Florida and taking pictures like these. When I grow up I want to do this. Seriously.

Did you know that when I was in first grade I sprained my ankle while jumping on the trampoline? I had to be carried up to the stage to get an award at the year-end assembly. I was mortified. That week I also remember my sister braiding my hair and making me hop down the hall to the bathroom to get another twistie. When I whined she just told me "it hurts to be beautiful". I still sorta believe that.

Did you know I've been growing this amaryllis since Thanksgiving? It decided to bloom the week that I was at work. I think my house plants hate me. On the other hand - isn't it beautiful?


  1. Did you know we had bats frequent our home in Michigan, literally! I wish we knew that steel wool tip. We also had squirrels, bees, and snakes :-)

  2. I'm having total flower envy. Your amaryllis is beautiful!

  3. Did you know that you have been gone for 21 minutes and I miss you already?

  4. Wow, that is some flower. You rock as a plant lady Amy. Also, I will miss you as a RS teacher, your lessons were great. I also think that you will do great as the Secretary though!
