yeah, he's up there hiding his face again. TWICE I've found a hole, which exposed the roots of my most beloved flower, in my flowerbeds. Which has led me to have to do this....
fill in the area with rocks. And as I take this picture, I notice the rocks are covered with dirt, from, with no doubt in my mind, Rudy. The faithful, loving, crazy, loyal, yet utterly frustrating dog who I cannot keep out of my flowerbeds.
I've also been busy with this...
my very neatly done, if I do say so myself, lawn. I LOVE to mow the yard. Now, this has not always been the case, (I'm sure my mom is laughing right now....)but in the almost 13 years I've been married, this has been my job, and I've loved every minute of it. It's peaceful, it's serene. I can smell the newly cut grass, and then promptly go in the house and treat my allergy infested eyes! (But I still love every minute of it.) Last night the kids and I were talking and I told them to not eat anything until I got in to fix them supper. I reminded them that when they were small, and I would go out and mow the lawn and leave them in the house, they would sometimes finish an entire jar of cookies when I was outside. This brought on severe fits of laughter from the both of them.
Last night, my husband brought home this...
my first NEW washer/dryer set since I've been married. Did you know new washers and dryers no longer come with hoses and electrical plug-ins out the back? RIDICULOUS! Who thought of this?????If I didn't have a handy husband, this would've been a nightmare. Needless to say, it took the both of us to bring these in, and haul our others out...(Does anyone want to buy a still good washer/dryer set for cheap?), and Brent still worked until about 10pm on getting them set up. I'm doing my first load of laundry in these puppies tonight.
Lastly, I had a softball game to attend tonight for my favorite girl.
She did a good job tonight, but I just can't help but wait for the days when there is no school before a game, so she's not so tired. Especially when the games themselves last a good 2 hours, PLUS the 1 hour of practice before the game. That's a long time at the ballpark!
So, because of all this, I apologize for the absence. I'll do better. Counting tomorrow, I only have 4 more days of school. I already have my no school to-do list ready. Remember my pantry is mocking me daily! I need to reorganize it before it gets any worse. I have crafts to make for an etsy shop? I might start, and many other things to occupy my days.
I'll try to not let so many days come between our chats. Now it's time to go watch the Friday Night Lights I taped last Friday with my husband.
