Where's the fridge light?

One friend describes our home as "a cool museum". My son's college buddy said: "I like your house. It's cool ... it's not normal." Naturally, I took that as a compliment. If all this sounds sweet, if somewhat odd, then you'll enjoy the funny exchange I had with my son Zach last night around midnight.

Zach: (in panic-y voice, outside my bedroom door) The light's out in the fridge!
Me: Yeah I know.
Zach: I can't see anything! What happened to the light?
Me: I needed it for the lava light.
Zach: Whaaaat? But I can't see in the fridge!
My hubby: Zach go to bed.
Me: I'll get a fridge bulb in the morning.
(Sound of lights flicking on all over the kitchen and fridge door opening ... again)

Perfectly normal, right?

Cool house indeed ! I love the thought of you and your hubbie of 23 years sitting close toegther by the light of the lava lamps. Who need to see what's in the fridge when I have lava and I have you. ;-)So romantic !

Happy Tuesday !

Sounds perfectly normal to me!!!
Love those lights, but here in Texas, those babies put off too much heat!
