An apology to my Mom...

For about 9 years, I have teased my mother about something and now I must apologize.

My parents were visiting us when we lived in Navy housing in Goose Creek about 9 years ago. I think it was after Meghan was born... I'm not sure, because the story has grown and grown.

To make a long story short, (yeah right) my Mom went to turn the light on in the kitchen. Instead of the light coming on, the garbage disposal came alive and she grinded a spoon or maybe it was a fork. I don't remember what it was... And I have unmercifully teased her. As a matter of fact, I told her we had to finally break down and buy some new silverware, because every time she comes to visit she ruins my silverware. (Again... it was only 1 piece of silverware...)

When she came to Hawaii to visit, I had fun pointing out that the garbage disposal is located UNDER the sink!!! She would have to try hard to "accidentally" grind my silverware.

Fast forward to two nights ago... I didn't check to see if there was anything in the garbage disposal when I turned it on... I grinded a spoon and completely destroyed it... Now I feel like an idiot, and I will have to find something else to tease my Mom about!! :)

Mom I apologize for teasing you... I love you!!! :)
