Plus One

I'm sorry, I just don't have it in me the past few days to update this blog .... quite frankly, my kids have been out of school one week so far, and keeping them entertained this summer is killing me. This week alone, we've spent a day at the lake, swam at two friends' houses, had friends over to play, gone to an amusement park, gone to a water park, gone roller skating, and today we are meeting the cousins at a local pool. I'm freaking exhausted. And when you add up the season passes, season locker rental, season tube rental, season parking pass, season souvenir cups (refills only $1 each!) and the six-dollar mini-pizzas, well, I've spent the equivalent of the national debt in the last four days alone. Our entire stimulus check will go towards the salaries of teen-age lifeguards this year. I'm sunburned. My legs ache from climbing the eleventeen billion stairs yesterday so Kellen could do the Mega-Wedgie slide a dozen times. I'm cranky. I think I'm looking forward to a nice, quiet weekend almost as much as people who work.

In the meantime, go here. Then add plus one, because by golly, another year has come and gone.

Happy anniversary, honey. May the root canal you're having this morning remind you of our looooooove.

If that's not "work," what is!?

I could never afford kids today. I want you to know that I spent all my "housework" time re-reading all 113 things from last year's anniversary entry. It was worth it.

I'll trade you my day at work with 20 kids for your day at the pool!

Happy Anniversary to you! Mine was #26 yesterday!

I feel the need to reiterate that what you do IS DEFINITELY work!! In fact, I would say that the work you do is much more important than the "work" many of us do all day, and probably more exhausting too!

Happy 20+1 Blaine & Kristie!

And thank you, Kristie, for directing me again to the post that contains the flannel nightgown. Err...dress. Yes, it's DEFINITELY a dress. And a cute one at that!!! :)

(Is it still in your closet?! PLEASE don't tell me you moved it across the country!!!)

HA! Thanks for the laugh...I don't know why I get such a kick out of that thing. :)

By the way...I'm not really poking fun. Well I guess I am but I'm not laughing AT you, but WITH you. I do know and fully understand the misfortunes we used to call "outfits".

Have a great weekend!

Happy Anniversary! :) Take a break this weekend- you deserve it just as much as though of us that work outside of the home!

Wow, 113 things you love about him. I'm not sure I could name so many.
Happy Anniversary.

Doesn't America have Summer Camps for several weeks to keep the smalls amused?
