Okay, this is so lame. At this rate the next Slapdash Saturday will happen on a bleak Wednesday in November, 2014. But oh well. I have nothing special to post, and lots of slapdashery, so here goes nothing.
Friday and Saturday we had our garage sale. It was a fun day, mostly because we had it at someone else’s house and she actually has a garage and also that meant I wasn’t stuck outside alone all day. In fact, all of us participating sellers had kids, so it got a little crazy from time to time, especially when everyone decided they were hungry. But it was a good time. I made over a hundred dollars which has been squirreled away for what my husband and I call the Schmoozy Weekend of Love and Romance– AKA the “SWOLAR” (it’s fun to say and we are nothing if not fun). The SWOLAR will be happening four weeks from this Friday, thanks to my awesome parents who are going to take the kids (LOVE YOU TWO!). We are very excited. So far the plans include not waking up at 6:30 because all the kids are up and also not doing laundry. Sounds delightful, no?
But before the SWOLAR we must deal with five more weeks of school, a fellowship at church that I am speaking at Friday night and have no. idea. what to say, two week-long seminary modules (for my hubby, not for me, thank goodness!), Memorial Day, and lots and lots of laundry. LOTS. Also our tenth anniversary, which is the twentieth, smack in the middle of one of my husband’s classes. Woo-hoo.
Squeezy Bug is walking more and more these days. It’s kind of disconcerting to just see her toddle by with her crazy pigtails sticking straight out of her head. Very cute. She also learned to say “Good Girl.” Which she says quite often as she is doing something completely naughty. Also, I have decided that her blog nickname shall be Squeezy Bug. It’s something we call her in real life, I don’t know why, but it works. Likely to be shortened to Squeezy quite often.
Bubs has taken an interest in magic, in addition to detective work, and believe me when I tell you a fabulous blog entry cannot be long in coming. Possibly even with video. A vlog, if you like that sort of thing. I am quite delighted at the prospect, and you should be too. Trust me.
In other thrilling news, the other night we were at the park and there was a mama duck and her eight bajillion little baby ducks. She was herding them away from us out into the water, when all of a sudden one of them went streaking out across the pond.
It had been hiding along the edge, and I couldn’t believe how fast it moved. Mama duck was not too happy with her naughty little duckling, and proceeded to peck it violently on the head. I totally related with Mama, having a Stinky of my own who likes to explore and get a little too far behind. Unfortunately human mothers are not encouraged to peck their children violently on the heads when they don’t keep up.
Have a good weekend week, y’all.
