I learned on Facebook this morning that it’s National No Housework Day! What’s even better than National No Housework Day is one of the images that accompanies the event….
Of course, it is never No Housework Day when you are a stay at home mom without a housekeeper. Laundry and beds await, as do dishes and everything else. It’s a great idea and an awesome picture, but…maybe next year. That will give me plenty of time to have everything in the house done and in order so I can proclaim the day!
In other news….the boat came home this week.
For the last couple of weeks, G has told the kids “I’ll be bringing the boat home soon.”
That confused 3-year old Vincent, who took G’s statement literally.
“When is Daddy bringing the boat home?” he keeps asking me.
“The boat is home, Buddy,” I reply.
“It’s not home,” he says. “It’s not in front of our house.”
“Oh,” I say. “No. Bringing the boat home means it’s returning to the harbor, not to the front of our house.”
Vincent asks next if Daddy will bring the boat home on the trailer or the forklift.
I’ll let G explain why we can’t dock a steel 58-foot combination fishing vessel in our residential driveway!
As you all know, we always celebrate the boat and crew homecoming. Sometimes we celebrate at home and sometimes we go out. I wasn’t sure if anyone would be up for going out this time, but they were! We had a fun but tame night out this week. We had a great evening of laughs, food, and a pitcher or two.
I just love our entire operation and most everyone involved. It’s family oriented with a splash of silly and a dash of daring. Together we all seem to make one merry and unique family season after season and year after year.
