Gosh I miss you guys! Life is still out-of-control busy, but I have so much I want to tell you all....unfortunately, most of it will have to wait just a bit longer. Shucky-durn.
That said, I *will* fill you in on the Fred Saga, my mother's day gift, and a poofy dress extravaganza.
When we last saw our hero, brave hubby had just kerplunked Fred into a mud hole in our backyard. Within the hour, Fred mysteriously disappeared.
But wait! After some careful prodding with a stick we found Fred had completely submerged himself under the mud with only his two nasty nostrils peeking out. Now we know why he smelled.
I did a bit of research and concluded that Fred was indeed a snapping turtle, and that they only leave the water in the spring to mate/lay eggs. We're going with the mating thing.
Anyway, our story picks up below with my son explaining in scientific terms that Fred was in the mud, but now isn't in the mud. Um, yeah. Anyway, the plot thickens as we discover his trail, find him in the neighbor's yard, and retreat to watch him from our kitchen window. The climax of our adventure is when my daughter must rescue Fred from the evil water hose in our neighbor's yard (and gives us an Oscar-worthy performance of a sarcastic 16 year old who knows everything). The glorious finale finds our family setting Fred free near a pond where we hope he lived happily ever after. Get your hankies ready.
Well alrighty then.
Next we have my mother's day gift. A hot pink Snuggi. Yes, we all laughed for about 4 hours as I imitated the frightening dance in the commercial. Yes, this was posed. I feel somewhat magical when I wear it. Yes I do.
By the way, I love my free dinky flashlight too.
Lastly, we have the poofy dress extravaganza. My daughter's senior prom. Yee Haw.
In more ways than one.....
I've got decorating to share soon. I've been helping a girlfriend with her house, and I'm remaking my front room into a chic homeschool room. Yes indeed, da boyz be comin' back home.
