So my folks are here and we’re totally taking advantage of their good graces.
The other night, my husband and I went on a hot date, leaving the children at home to
torture play with their grandparents. Otto and I had a delicious dinner and then—heady with our freedom—went to Ye Olde Giant Home Improvement Store and bought… shelf paper. And planters. Because we are wild and crazy, and nothing says romance like looking at bathroom faucets you don’t even need.
And then yesterday, there were strawberries. That’s a longer story than I can tell right now, but suffice it to say that it was An Adventure. Accidentally. Not that anyone could’ve predicted such a thing, of course. Certainly not me. You know, the person who got us into the whole mess. But to make it up to my family, afterward, I baked a pie. That was a complete disaster. Yay!
Today we’ve already gone digging around in the garden, replanted a bunch of things, and rescued a salamander from the pool. It’s exciting around here, y’all.
