I forgot to mention that tonight after our dinner guest leaves, we will be going on a roadtrip to buy yet another boat.
Oh---and we brewed a whole batch of beer and bottled wine this morning. And also took a long walk and consulted with the Texas Christmas Tree Grower's Assocation (of which we are members) about irrigation stuff. AND I did lots of laundry. AND cleaned crayon off the couch. And the dog. And out of my daughter's teeth.
My hubbie has been home for a week and will be here for yet another. While I am THRILLED to have him home, I must admit that his frantic whirlwind pace is making me a tad exhausted.
We now have a little catamaran/sailboat thingie, so we had to spend a day freezing to death in a filthy brown lake enjoyed the opportunity to take it out for the first time. I've been sailing many times before, but I always forget how much scuttling to and fro is involved. And how many ropes.
Did I mention he's a Type A-ish sort of personality? He's just about the only person I've ever met who can make ME feel lazy. Which might be one of the many, many reasons why I married him. However, it also may be one of the reasons why I need a large glass of wine and perhaps an ice pack for my head and a fainting couch whenever he is home "on vacation".
One of these hoses had to be run past every single solitary baby tree.....that's 475 of them in case I haven't mentioned it before. Yes, I know I have. A hole had to be punched in the line near each tree and a drip emitter installed. Believe you me, that takes a Long Darn Time. With lots of squatting and kneeling and dirt and fire ants and snakes.
(not my husband) Did I mention that wretched place called Shenanigan's? Fortunately, Adam didn't actually enjoy it much either---we had a gift certificate from someone. That was really nice of someone to give it to us, actually. I'm being a total ingrate to complain. Now I feel guilty. It just wasn't my kind of place. I'll try anything once, though.
All right......we're having more people over for dinner. I need to chop and dice and whatnot. What I could really use is a nap. How do YOU nice people deal with spouses/significant others being home on vacation?
