Yes, I am still without the use of a dryer! We did pick it up from the store...it is sitting in the basement...but it has not been hooked up as of yet. His cousin was doing an A/C job and was just not able to get over there yesterday, as we had planned. We actually have a dinner date tonight, so we can't have him come over...so we wait until after work tomorrow.
I JUST WANNA DO MY OWN LAUNDRY, AT MY OWN HOUSE!!! Grrr! LOL
Yesterday, I played in the rain, until I was drenched from head to toe. I recommend it for every adult, every once in a great while. Here is why...
A while back, Brian and I decided to try and fix the lawn in my backyard. (Yes, big emphasis on the word "try" here). We put down compost, we seeded, we even fertilized, we watered daily and up grew nothing but nice, beautiful, very healthy and hearty weeds! Since Brian's job requires that he do restorations of properties where they have fixed water main breaks and dug up their yards to do so, he also must visit the sod farm. When they have leftovers, they can do whatever they'd like with the remaining sod. He has been bringing a little here and there and patching up our little weed gardens. Yesterday, he brought the remainder of what we needed and decided to finish up last night. As we went out to get started, it really looked stormy out, but he was really determined to get this finished. We start hauling all these rolls of sod from the side of the house, to the back. Of course, it starts pouring. I figure once he transfers them, he will be done for the night but, oh no, he figures it's as good a time as any, and he'll stay cool in the process. I stayed out helping for as long as I could, and I must say, not only was it refreshing, but it was kinda fun. I remember playing in the rain as a kid, and I LOVED it. Granted, this wasn't as much fun as it was way back when, I was covered in mud and filth, but the concept was still the same. This now will be a requirement for me, every now and then. So what that I'm an adult, so what that it totally wigs out my hair, so what that I will have to take the time to shower for the 2nd time in one day...it's awesome to be a kid for even a few minutes and totally worth it! When was the last time you played in the rain, or did something that brought you right back to your childhood?
We also sucked it up and went on a quest to find a new remote for the TV. Silly kids! They swear they just have no idea where it has gone. Yeah right! Anyhow, we just bought a cheapie universal and I swore that I'd hide it before leaving for work, so they don't "lose" it again. (Yes, I already forgot to do that this morning! LOL) That trend really lasted!
I also got Corey the new HP book at target yesterday. He was so excited and surprised. I love that look on their faces, when you do something that they just think is, "the bomb". LOL He sat on the porch for hours reading. I think he said he got to page 131! Go Corey! And yes, I am now "cool mom" once again! (This will last about a day).
That's about all for now. Hope everyone has a great day!
P.S. Remember to comment about the last time you played in the rain or did something very child like! LOL
