If we didn't do what we do....

This picture makes me laugh out loud.  It's hilarious.  I'm sure you've seen the story that accompanies it... That the dad comes home and finds this mess and asks what happened.  And the wife says, "You know how you ask me what I do all day? Well, today I didn't do any of it."

It's so true!  All day long, little mundane things, sometimes big mundane things.  But if we didn't do them, we'd all end up like this.

Maybe when your husband gets home you can show him this picture, have him look around your house and just say... "You're Welcome."

Well, I never...

I've never had a bloody nose.

I've never broken any bones, despite falling out of numerous trees, falling off numerous horses and being clutzy in general.

I've never eaten sushi.

I've never dyed my hair. Although I have done highlights out of a box.

I've never had an unmedicated birth.  Hoping to change that this time.

I've never liked seafood.

I've never used an American subway. I *have* been on a subway in France.

I've never done any type of drugs or smoked cigarettes.

I've never made chili from scratch. (Mostly because I can't eat it.)

I've never been able to walk *gracefully* in high heels.

I've never loved sleep as much as I do these days.

I've never liked the smell of lilies.

I've never liked Hershey's chocolate syrup.

I've never wanted to raid my freezer and eat the peanut butter cookie dough I have stashed in there, more than I do now. Must. Stay. Away.

This and That

*Owen says "farton me" when he toots.  It's hilarious.  He has no idea it's actually PARDON me.

*Kate got an award at school and glowing remarks from her teachers.  So glad she likes school and is doing well.

*Christian wants to wear shorts even when it's only 50 degrees outside, insisting that summer IS here, despite the rain and gloom.

*I have 9 weeks left in this pregnancy and am getting seriously excited to hold my baby girl.  Even if she is still nameless.

*Josh brought me a dozen roses the other day, just to say "thanks".  He's been gone a lot for church fundraising, and he wanted me to know he appreciates me holding down the fort.

*I have officially started waddling. 

*I love our home.  LOVE IT.  We were gone over the weekend, and when we got back I walked in and just heaved a huge sigh of relief and thankfulness.  It is so perfect for us.  It's not perfect; far from it (can you say old, scratched and dented oak trim EVERYWHERE? Not to mention pink countertops.)  But it is perfect for me and I love it so, so much.

*Our dryer broke so I had to go to the laundromat, because pretty much ALL of our clothes were dirty after the weekend away and since I wasn't caught up before we left.  Can I just say that it would be a dream come true to own a couple of those industrial washers and dryers!? ALL the laundry was washed and dried within an hour.  ALL OF IT!!!

*I may or may not have a slight addiction to iced coffees. 

*I desperately want to paint my toes... but can't comfortably reach them.  Guess it's time for a pedicure. :-D

*Sleep is a beautiful thing.
