Happy/Sad Ramblings Part 2



Happy:
I picked about 50 tomatoes out of my garden yesterday.
Sad:
They all had end rot.

Happy:
We haven't spent countless hours mowing our yard this summer.
Sad: 
Our crunchy brown grass gives you slivers when you walk barefoot. 

Happy:
I found my drivers license. 
Sad:
I didn't even realize I'd been driving without it for weeks. I must look too old to get carded anymore..

Happy:
I stayed up until midnight cleaning my house and scrubbing my floor, making it look shiny and new.
Sad:
I overheard Nolan ask Charlie the next morning if the toad he caught peed on him to which Charlie delightfully replied, "Yeah! It's dripping all over the house!!"

Happy:
I had an amazing, fluffy down pillow at the resort in Chicago.
Sad:
I have been restlessly dreaming about it every night since.

Happy:
Husker Football is right around the corner.
Sad:
So is back to school..

Happy:
The every day 100+ heat means we've gotten our money's worth out of our pool.
Sad:
The every day 100+ heat means I have a hot, cranky, tired factory-working husband.

Happy:
Ella's therapists noticed that my house was really clean and that I showered before our IFSP meeting.
Sad:
That means they also notice every other day when the house is a complete disaster and I haven't showered for a few days..

Happy:
We have 8 adorable baby kitties.
Sad:
We've only confirmed homes for 2 of them. Anyone interested?? :)

  2. Don't you love how people notice when you shower? I "love" it when I go to work and someone says "you look good today" and all I've done differently is shower... guess I should do it more ;o)

  3. As long as we're on the topic of showers, it had been so long since my last one that I just HAD to take one today before I went out . . . to the pool!

    Happy/Sad addition:
    Happy: My 2-year old loves to help in the garden and has probably picked over 50 tomatoes herself!
    Sad: They're all still green.

  5. cute! My husband found something called 'blossom rot' (?) at home depot, and we have been rot free since! Found you on the Mommy Mixer.

  6. That's an interesting take on how things play out in our lives. At least you can find both the good and the bad in everything. But I don't think you have to stay up for long hours cleaning the floor if you owned a cleaning machine, such as a scrubber, so you can clean more efficiently and conveniently.
