Day 17.5 or Silly me I forgot the funny part......

So yesterday about the time that the kids would be getting off the bus and coming home there was a knock on my door. I look out the window and see some guy standing at the edge of my driveway, which meant someone was on my porch. Great the first thought was "that crazy Jehovah's witness lady is back again". Nothing against that religion - just that she has the worst timing on the days she comes here. Usually when I need to be getting in the shower to get to work, and ignoring her knocking only makes her open the screen door and knock on the front door. So I went and grabbed a hoodie to put on since I was in my pjs and answered the door. Well it wasn't the Jehovah's witness lady but a Navy recruiting officer. He asked for someone that had lived in this area a while ago and used my address for his info request. I simply stated that I'd lived in this house for 6 years now and that person would have possibly lived her before that (if during that time hubby would have been MAD lol). The poor guy felt like a smuck and then asks "so, you want to join the Navy?" To which I said no, not that I wouldn't serve my country in some form if I was needed to but I don't think that it would be the job or life for me in the long run. Not to mention that I am seriously out of shape for something like that. So he says he'll leave me a card in case I have any friends or family members who might be interested in joining. I told him I couldn't think of any at the time because there are quite a few already serving but thanks. His buddy ribbed him for "having the wrong house" for all we know (depending on how long ago it was) he could have had the right house.... But then they hung out in my drive for a few minutes after asking permission - to finish their ciggarettes before getting back into their car and ended up leaving before the girls got home.

So after that was all over I get online and im the hubby - so you want to join the Navy? hehehe

I have a few religious ladies come to my house every so often. They always seem to bring along a lady who is about 90. I take their pamphlets and tell them I am different religion and they leave. Have a wonderful week.
