I think it's too late to blog about the cabin trip. It's tricky to remember what happened yesterday, let alone three or four days ago. What I do recall is that I learned to play euchre, and KICK ASS at it, and I also learned to play horseshoes, and pretty much suck ass at it. So--here are a few pictures in lieu (is that right?) of the promised post.
In further news, my period was late, but finally arrived. My poor husband had to deal with both a pregnancy scare and PMS this month. After getting cussed at for calling my period "the rod" he asked what he should call it. 10 years of marriage and he still hasn't figured this one out. He used to enquire sweetly, "So how's your menstruation going?" until I was forced to throw a very heavy book at him. Really--just don't ask. Rub my feet. Fix me a drink. Unload the dishwasher, and just don't ask.
Summer is already flying by. I love that I don't have to turn on my alarm clock before I go to sleep. I love that it takes me a minute to figure out what day of the week it is, and that I pretty much have no idea what the date is. June is always my "free month" and I don't start freeking out about all the shit I need to get done until July. However, I am happy to report that I am already ahead of schedule, having cleaned under my bed and under and behind my dresser. Thank you. Please hold your applause until the end of the summer.
Today's best thing about being a mom:
I bought Soph and her play date some of those invisible ink books; the ones that you color over with the magic pen and, um stuff magically appears? Only these ones were truly bitchin. There were 3 magic pens. Yes.
Today's worst thing about being a mom:
My sister-in-law is cashing in on the tending I owe her tomorrow. 2 of her three boys (2 and 6) will be spending most of the day tomorrow. Drat.
