- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
Due to our moving into our new home and everything, I've been so tired lately that it's unbelievably ridiculous. Last night, at 3 a.m., I'm sitting on my son's bed and I look down at the meter and see his number is 16! I start to panic when suddenly something strange happens. He's not 16, he's 15! No, he's not 15, he's 14! He's dropping fast! This has never happened before? What do I do? We need juice fast. What I did do is wake up enough to actually figure out that his meter was still counting down. He wasn't dropping at all!
