Uping the Chaos

As if things were not chaotic enough around here with 3 kids, a new puppy, and an international adoption in the works, my husband went out to the Home Depot this past Monday when he was off work for President's Day and bought. . .

wait for it. . .

a chain saw on a stick!

A device that has the ability to cut off limbs (both tree and human I'm guessing) that he holds precariously way above his head!

And this picture does not even capture the half of it, because I couldn't bear to watch the part when he was on the top rung of a 6 ft. ladder using the chain saw on a stick!

I figure our odds of going to the ER on any given day were already pretty high (and yes there are doggie emergency rooms and yes, we already debated taking the puppy to one when she ate a seashell -- chomped it into sharp edged pieces and managed to swallow a few before we noticed and stopped her) and now they have increased by about 50%!

P.S. We have lost nearly all our good sense, but we do have a few shreds left, those power lines are not nearly as close as they appear in the picture!

  1. Oh good lord. LOL That was the first thing I thought of when I saw the picture - the power lines. :D PHEW!

  2. Ha! See, I personally would love something like that..bc when upset/angry.. I take out my frustrations on the yard..either weeding, pruning..etc... this would be perfect for those REALLY mad days.... but then again being an ex trauma nurse... well... I think you already know the ending..

  3. That looks like the ULTIMATE man toy. My husband would be all over it (I'd be hiding in my house waiting for the screaming and blood too)!

  4. Oh my gosh! I think you need to hide this one day when he isn't home! ;)

  5. Those things are scary, aren't they? Hubby has one and I can't watch him using it... ;)

  6. My 65 year old neighbor uses one of those things. I hold my breath watching him.
    Just wanted to tell you that lately I find myself checking your blog more often and with hope concerning the adoption process. I can't wait to find out you've got your girl. Praying for you guys.


I'd love to hear what you think!
