Closet Makeover

Monday, June 17th 2019

My favorite part of my newly organized closet is the little foot sticking out there on the bottom right.


Spare Child Parts in My Closet



This on account of someone moving in over several days and claiming her portion of precious real estate for a (secret) reading nook.

Date Night !!!

Friday, June 14th 2019

del couple dancing


Grandma was taking the kids for dinner and a sleepover at a nearby hotel, ergo;

Hubby + Me = FREE!!!

After dropping the kids off for their adventure, we agree to rest for a few minutes before going out on the TOWN.  Even if the most ambitious rendition of “town” I could imagine at this point is soaking in a hot tub and finding some food.  Awesome.  It is 6pm.

del date night


Around 9pm, Dear Hubsand comes out of the bedroom and mumbles something.  I, slumped over on the couch, am reported to have rolled over.   Soon after that I move into the bedroom to “rest” a little more.

At 2:22am I awake still in my clothes.  I change into pajamas, brush my teeth (!) and climb back into bed.

At 8am DaddyLove heads off to retrieve the kids.

I stay behind to continue vaguely staring at the ceiling.
