In honor of Padre

Father’s Day.  I’m going to say my Hubby had a good one, because it’s my blog, not his.  But……perhaps he’ll chime in on the combox (as he does from time to time) and confirm or deny.  However, here’s the breakdown of the day:

  • No work today.  With new schedule of alternating Sundays today was day OFF.  Win #1
  • Due to no work, he woke up early to ride his road bike.  Sunday morning+no traffic=20 sweet miles Win#2
  • Our girl was home from Life Teen Camp at Hidden Lake after being gone all week Win#3  (actually #1)
  • Family Mass together.  Sort of.  Our girl was BEAT from getting in so late and our boy is still struggling with church, so 1/2 the kids and sweet Mama and donuts after Mass bringing us to Win#4
  • After getting in the garden and bleaching out the A/C and cleaning the filter because, you know, man stuff, he opened presents.  Behold my new addition to my Pinterest board:  Candy bar bouquet and sweet sentiments from the kids because….love language=words!  Win#5basket
  • Lunch at my step dads with most of the siblings and kiddos in tow….we beat the rain, ate hot dogs, the boys and dad jumped off the roof and made it home for a little nap.  Win #6
  • To top it off….World Cup.  Win#7

Focusing on the amazing man and Father my husband is, how much he loves our kids, how hard he works for our family and the continuous efforts he makes on a daily basis to be the best man he can be.  He is a blessing to me and our kids; we adore him!!   For that I say Happy Father’s Day, today and everyday!  XOXO

Mr. Fix-It


Funny how fixing something can make you feel so great…all pumped up with yourself and USEFUL!  Our washer pooped out on us this weekend, fortunately it was the second to last load and ready for spin cycle.  After driving all over town on Sunday afternoon looking for a laundromat to wash the ONE last load (boy’s gym clothes made it a necessity!) Hubby stopped by my step-dad’s house to wash since all the laundromats were closed.  He gave Hubby some ideas on what it could be and today he put the theory to the test, installed the part via Youtube and….Voila!  Fixed.  And already in action.  On a roll, he then tackled replacing the sprayer in the kitchen sink….drumroll for…..SUCCESS!  


The guy is smoking!   I should find something else that needs fixing.  You know, strike while the iron is HOT!  I figure between the washer repairman and the plumber he saved us at least $150….I think I’ll make him some cookies this week!  It’s the little things.  Poor guy though, between the P90X, waking up @ 4:30 a.m. and all that “fix-it” after working all day….he’s in bed asleep at 9!  I’m so jealous!!
