We Got Slimed and It Wasn’t Fun

My son recently walked into the kitchen to surprise me with a head full of slime. Specifically Poo Doo slime from the Dollar Tree.

The Geeky Family Gift Guide that Disappeared

I just logged on to update this post and put a few finishing touches on my Geeky Family Gift Guide, and IT'S ALL GONE. I have no idea what happened.
