Friday night leftovers

  • I'm crazy excited for this weekend. The weather is going to be AWESOME and we have no pressing plans. I'm probably going to take the kids to the lake.

  • Aaron worked almost 24 hours in a row yesterday. So I thought I would surprise him with a steak (we rarely eat red meat). I got him this insane bone-in cowboy steak. He was very, very happy.

  • Today is 'beach day' at the kid's daycare. I was supposed to pack them bathing suits, a swim diaper and towels. I totally forgot, but in the truck of my car, I had everything they needed. Aaron calls me a slob. I say I'm prepared for anything, lol.

  • How is it that I never tried flavored half and half. Hurrah!

  • I used to sit and knit all the time. The last 6-8 months I haven't been. All of a sudden, I'm back to it. Makes me happy. I'm working on a couple of Christmas presents and a fun sweater for Cam. If I remember correctly, I stopped knitting because the kids wouldn't wear sweaters at all last winter. Interesting how I have totally blocked it out and have started knitting for them again.

  • In reference to the point above, it's probably good that I got my tubes tied when the twins were born - because I've also blocked out the horror that Maggie was as a newborn and could possibly be tricked into another newborn. Except I'll never forget that babies can also die and I KNOW I can't handle even thinking about that again.

  • Washing dogs. You guys really don't? Do your dogs stink? Mine kind of do - so I get nervous that my house smells like stinky dog (not enough to wash them, though)

  • And I loved every one's comments on my SAHM mom lust. I'm glad no one got offended and totally understood what I was trying to say.

I mean, ideally I wash my dogs. But it is such a pain that I don't do it as much as I should. The little dog never stinks because he stays inside all the time. Trin is a little smelly when she comes inside after being in the sun, but it dissipates quickly. My house doesn't smell like dog though, I've had my mom check. Maybe I just lucked in to non-smelly dogs.

Matt always likes steak surprises too. By the way, I learned how to cook steak in the oven and I will never go back to the grill- it is that much better.

Honestly, I can't remember the last time our dog had a bath. I knnow he is due, but I keep putting it off. But this is the best time of year when we can do it outside with the hose. Thanks for the reminder.

My seven year old has never worn a sweater for more than an hour, including when we go skiing. But she is a HOT kid, always has been. Sleeps in her underwear in the dead of winter. I don't knit, but I'm hoping I can get the 1.5 year old into some cute sweaters this winter.

I loved the SAHM lust post. It made total sense to me. :)

No, no dog washing at home. It is a service I gladly pay for.

It's funny b/c I just started knitting this past week after a several-months lag. You have reminded me though -- now's the time to start Christmas presents!
