You know you’ve reached a special place in your relationship when your sweetie comes home from work and your first response is, “Oh yay! You bought a weedwhacker!”
To do today: 1. Breakfast 2. get dressed 3. pick raspberries 4. go to Division Hardware and pick up two replacement screws and wingnuts for the crib 5. go to Freddie’s for -7 4 11×14 picture frames – only picked up three, as I couldn’t find any super cheap ones that would work, I’ll have [...]
I have been having the kind of day where I consistently write down the date wrong, and then sit there staring at it for five minutes trying to figure out what the problem is.
