"You Look Like a Monkey..."


The Hubs had a birthday last month. Okay, more like...eh hem, six weeks ago.

Gah! I know! I'm actually starting to think my blog is turning into my lame-o journaling and scrapbooking attempts. I start off doing so well, then I begin to fall more and more behind until I'm trying to catch up on something that happened years ago.

Do you know I actually have journal entries from my teenage years that go something like this: "Oh my goodness! I have so, so much tell! All these crazy things have happened and it's such a long story so, here we go."

And... that's it. So I'm sitting here all old now thinking, What? What happened! What did I do? Don't leave me hanging teenage self! Was it about a boy? Spill girl! Tell meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

But I guess I'll never know.

I'm still trying to decide if I should finally get around to writing about our family spring break trip from two years ago.

But that just might weird everyone out.

Anyhow, June was a rather busy month so you will still see posts popping up from that month.

But I digress. 

Where was I...? Oh yes, Hubby had a birthday.




Okay, So I just had to throw those pictures in there because they were so dang irresistible!

Even though Claira doesn't have anything to do with Hubby's birthday, I let her hijack this post for a bit anyway, just because I couldn't resist that smile.

I'm afraid Hubby's birthday was rather low-key. We went out to dinner, the kids and I took rice krispie treats to his office, and we made ice cream cake.


Oh, and sang "Happy Birthday" of course. "You look like a monkey" style.



The ice cream cake was a hit, as always. Except Claira wasn't too thrilled that she didn't get her own piece since she refused to eat dinner.


So ya, all in all pretty low-key.

Next year I will try to do better.

Maybe by then I will actually be able to think of a gift!



Dear Universe,

Why are men so dad-gum hard to shop for? 
It's just down-right mean to have created them that way.

Sincerely,
A desperate housewife.

That moment when I write a novel of a comment and then the internet goes out before I can post it and the whole comment disappears completely. -_-

I'm with you on the men-are-so-blasted-hard-to-shop-for thing. When you aren't pregnant and can't give them that kind of surprise...what do you do?? I guess women are hard to shop for too, though. Patrick found that out when trying to think of something to get me for my birthday. "Anything is lovely, Hon. Whatever you give me will be so much. Even just a note." Yeah, I'm helpful like that.

Also, your Claira is a DOLL.

First off, this curious Sherlock Holmes at heart personality type is very, very mad at you at the moment. How so? Because!! You do not write such incomplete journal entries from your teenage years, then leave us all wondering!! Hee, hee, hee.... ;-D
