Happy Birthday, Bruce!!!

Today is Hubby's birthday (I won't reveal the age...surely its somewhere around 29 though...haha). Its also our 26th anniversary. I haven't bought him presents or cake. We have been much too busy to go shopping, spending most of our spare time utilizing this new gym membership (we are really enjoying it, and wondering why we didn't do this a long time ago). And as for cake....well, yeah, that ties into the new gym membership, too. We have been making serious efforts to clean up our eating habits, and that has been going rather well. We have been too busy to sit around and eat junk food...Haha. There's that, and the fact that we have also been too busy to go grocery shopping, so there is not much stuff in the house anyway. Whatever, its all good. The point is that we are having fun.

But I wanted to write a Happy Birthday/Happy Anniversary post to Hubby. You are my soulmate and my best friend. There is not another human being on the planet that I would want to spend 26 years with. I hope we have a couple of hundred more to go. Face it, dahling, you are STUCK with me. Remember how we changed our wedding vows to "always and forever" instead of "til death do us part"...? (We really didn't like the mention of anything as depressing as death to mar our celebration). Well, you may not have realized it at the time, but speaking those magic words bound you to me for all eternity. Not even death can spare you my eternal (infernal...?) presence....HAHA! We are in this together for the long haul.......

Anyway, we have a million things to do this weekend that are NOT exactly celebrational (ie the grass cutting, dishwasher shopping....oh the joys of home ownership). But we are going to a fancy restaurant for dinner tonight. I hope. We forgot to make reservations, but hopefully we can still get in. Its called Chef's 505, and its supposed to be amazing. I'll let you know how it is......Much love to my Beloved Hubby!!!!

Sadly enough...

We will be spending our weekend shopping for dishwashers! I am doing my online research for reviews, suggestions, and sales today. Apparently the control panel of my old dishwasher has gone completely haywire, and its not worth the cost of replacing. Not when the dishwasher itself is 14 years old. So....yeah....not exactly the kind of shopping that I love, but it MUST be done.
And that is all I have to say about that.....

I know Dad and Barb want pics of the new bedroom furniture. I will get that done as soon as possible. I'm still in the moving/rearranging clothes and stuff into all of the drawers at the moment. I have more drawer space than I am used to and a glorious thing!!!! LOL.
Happy Friday Ya'll!

Rant Recanted...

I'm better now. It would appear as though my dishwasher, although still in the throes of death, will work on one of its other cycles. The cycle that I usually use won't pop open the tray that holds the detergent. So while that sucks, at least it buys us a little more time to figure out what we want to do (meaning repair/replace...). Maybe we will have the time to deal with it over the weekend.

Speaking of the weekend, Saturday is Hubby's birthday and our anniversary. We thought about taking a short weekend trip to the beach or something, but after talking it over a day or so ago, it appears as if we were both thinking the same thing: We've been so busy that it feels like we haven't had any time at home. A trip in this hot weather is not all that appealing. We would both be happier staying here, having some down time, and just having a hot date that evening instead....HAHA! How funny that we were both thinking the same thing, kind of afraid to say it lest we disappoint the other by not wanting to go. Its official...I LOVE this guy. We both admitted that a trip to the beach will be much more thrilling when the worst of the heat is over in September. Its still plenty warm enough plus there is the added bonus of all the kiddies being in school. It is wonderfully uncrowded then.

One other thing...The rest of my bedroom furniture is scheduled to be delivered on Thursday.
Yay! I can finally get my house put back together. I've been informed that I better LOVE this because it happens to be my anniversary, birthday AND Christmas presents for the rest of the year. Thats ok, I will take it.

Time for a Rant!!

Its way too freakin' hot. I am ready for summer to be over and done with. I am sick to death of work, and am just dying to shout out loud, "Take this job and shove it." And the worst thing...? My dishwasher has decided to stop working. I just had to wash stuff by hand. In the sink. And I hate icky dish water with a passion. Little unidentifiable bits of food floating around in soapy water makes me slightly queasy. This WILL NOT go on for long. Either it gets repaired or we shop for a new one right away. I pointed out to hubby that this is tantamount to his having to cut these gazillion acres of grass that we have with a push mower. No way THAT is going to happen. So....yeah....this situation has to be rectified.
