Aftermath of Washing Machine Failure

With our dryer out of commission due to the 8 fans and 2 dehumidifiers running downstairs, our sun soaked deck was put to good use.

As were my Tetris skills (life skill, not merely a game!!).

Swimming pool  Hallway after spill, pre-carpet extraction team.


Clean, organized, (wet) craft room.

Huge, gigantic mess!

At least we get new carpet.  Yay. :)

Date Night!

Wouldn't it figure?  The one night I was going to go to bed early, and the bottom floor flooded.  That's what you get for doing laundry. :)

As it happens, I forgot to plan date night for the evening.  Turns out that puddle jumping in your own foyer/guest room/hallway/craft room/laundry room is a decent last minute date.  There is something uniquely bonding about two people pulling together for the common good and goal.  It may also end up being the most expensive one we've had in a while.  We'll see!  

First instinct as my toes hit the puddles?  "I should totally wake Lizzy up!"  If she ever knew what she missed, she would be so upset.  There was one point where I could step in and the top of my foot was covered!  All from an hour and 15 minutes of flooding from a washing machine.  

Good night!

How We Spent Our 6th Wedding Anniversary

It started with Lee taking off work!  He never does this (ok, he did take off 3 or 4 days for Lizzy's birth, and 1 for Nye).

Next we sat down for eats and found new friends!  I was about to steam some broccoli when I noticed Cabbage Looper worms.  Lizzy refused to let me just throw them away.  So they became our lunchtime pals!  

Cool girls eat with worms crawling up their arms.  Don't ask why; it's just done.  

Next we ventured outside to get our fill of honeysuckle and blackberries.

A real friend joined us for the hunt.  Unfortunately the berries were mostly green and red.

Nye didn't let that stop him.  He was SO excited that he could help himself to as much food as he could find.    Green, black, red, leaf.  It was all the same to him.

Then Nye took Lizzy for a drive around the block.

We finished by celebrating with cremehorns.  They taste like childhood to me.  Nye ate them the same way I used to-filling first.  

Where was Lee during all this celebrating?
Vomiting on the couch.

Happy Anniversary Honey!
