Watch out

My dad sent me this in the mail the other day. I asked Dennen if he would pretend to attack me so I could spray him in the eyes. He said "no." Come on Denn, I need to practice. I can see why he's hesitant though, if this stuff actually does what it claims to, "making grown men cry since 1975." Yes please. I am not a gun person at all. I just don't think I could honestly shoot someone. Could you? Pepper spray on the other hand... Easy peesy!


In other news, we are kind of coming off of a vacation high. My mom, Megan, and Tyler came to visit and we had a blast! From going to beaches, to lighthouses, to festivals, to eating tons of pastries, we're left feeling a little bit wanting... I'm actually trying to care about doing the everyday up-keep with making meals and putting away the laundry (both of which I haven't done), and it's kind of difficult.

I'll soon be posting about their visit, and all the things we did. So stay tuned...

My mom has used pepper spray on a dog before! It's a good idea.

Yeah, I think I could shoot someone if they were coming after me/Beck. You never know until you're in that situation, though. My mom was anti guns until one night when my dad was gone and the house alarm went off. My mom went upstairs to see if my brother set it off by opening a window, but he was asleep. She was coming down the stairs when she realized that if someone were in the house, he would be between her and me. That moment made her change her mind! Guns do make me nervous with kids in the house.

What a cute dad. I'm completely with you on the gun thing. I'm sure I would do what I had to do to protect my kids, but the thought of using a gun scares me. I feel much better about defending myself with something that is debilitating, not lethal. I also have pepper spray to run with. It's a good idea.

How cute of your dad to be thinking of you! I have that exact same pepper spray because Zack is nervous about me running on the trail here.
