Pretty Much All Downhill from Here

pool's open. Brr!
Brrr! Pool's open, y'all.
Laura is still with her friend at the beach, and this morning I packed Hank off to Stone Mountain with his buddy for the day. Then I went to play tennis under a blue sky. While I was there, it dawned on me that Fabienne was on her way over to clean. I said to my friends, "Girls, listen. Other women are caring for my children. Yet another woman is cleaning my house. This is really pretty much the peak for me and I don't expect that it can get any better." They all affirmed me, with sisterly satisfaction.

Oh, and even the dog is away. She stayed at the mountain house for doggy spring break with Mom and Dad.

Thank God we don't have to deserve the good things that happen to us.

You know?

Then I stopped by the pool, just because it was open, and snapped this pic. Then I had lunch with Matt. Now I'm going to go get my car headlight replaced. I called the auto place to inquire as to whether they could fit me in, and the guy goes, "Well if we have the right bulb, it will take about fifteen minutes. If we have to order it, it will take about thirty minutes." I was like, whoa, where are you ordering it from, magic man? Next door?

I just talked to Laura on the phone. She is having a fabulous time. They rode their bikes to Seaside and saw the house from The Truman Show. Then she saw Reese Witherspoon in a bar. Another mother might have asked, "What were you doing in a bar?" But I was all, "OMG REEEESE!"

I am pretty sure we would be best friends if she would just call me.

Tonight, Hank, Matt, and I will get on the road to head down to his Tough Mudder race. That will be in the morning. I had to sign a waiver to watch this thing. I will keep you informed.

You please do the same. xoxo

Daffodils and I
exchange sympathetic nods.
We peaked too early.

Go, Matt!!

Hey-- Reese is pregnant, so what was SHE doing in a bar? Perfect chance to say, "You have a baby! a bar!"

Michele said...

That's about as good as spring break gets.

I would not have been concerned about Laura being in a bar either because REESE!

Sounds magical. I'd liken it to those days when I have the day off work, but daycare is open. Holla!

I just...there are no words to explain the bliss you must be feeling, or the level of envy I have for you at this moment. In an alternate universe, a two year old poured milk down the back of his mother's silk shirt this morning, then shoplifted a Kind Bar from the grocery and at the very moment said mother pondered letting him sleep another 30 minutes, his said, "mine" through his monitor, presumably to his stuffed animals who are obviously taking his things. A robot is dusting my wood floors though, so I'm not too far from your beautiful bizarro world. Enjoy this magical day!

Your dog is snoring on her bed in the corner of my bedroom. She is too sore from her walk to go back downstairs to pee before we turn in, so I'll probably have to get up and let her out in the dead of night.

I hear you, except no one is taking care of my kids, they are taking care of themselves. It is all coming together!

I look forward to hearing the race thingy went A-OK!

Awesome... glad you were able to have a good spring break too!
