10 Reasons To Celebrate

Monday July 14, 2008

  1. Spouse is Driving. Even to work! Everyday!

  2. The Tour de France. Those punchy bikers in all of their 130 lbs have finally entered the mountains.

  3. Homemade Aprons. I have two of them. And each has a pocket for my iPod.

  4. Air Conditioning. Which makes it possible for me to bake homemade bread. Even in the summer.

  5. The Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L usm. I've finally got one!

  6. Spouse Peed Standing up. What's a feller to do when the handicapped stall is occupied?

  7. A Thesaurus For My Purse. You never know when you need a new word for the beefcake who just cut you off. Bought it today at the Target.

  8. Parking your own domain. or see more at

  9. Potty Trained. All of the Yahoos use the toilet now. At least most of the time. And finally, the most important of all...

  10. Spouse is Walking

This is fabulous. I think 1-9 is pretty neat stuff. But number ten is really the greatest thing I have seen in a long time. :)

Wahoo for you times 10!

And now I can add my number 1. I know who I'll call for our next family pictures :-)

I love the video of spouse--what a great moment and a huge burden that has been lifted.

All right! So how are we going to celebrate? I'm coming up for the weekend. We could grab a few cold ones together. (would that be smoothies for non-alcoholics?) Just kidding. I hope you have some sort of celebration though.

Driving AND walking? This is reason to celebrate!

I used to think aprons were silly, but now that you mentioned that you keep your iPod in the pocket, I may have to rethink this.

Hm, I may need to get an apron AND an iPod!

Agreed, it doesn't get any better! I think we're all pretty tired though and our celebratory umph is lacking some spice.

Perhaps a green popsicle at 10:00 in the morning would be sufficient (non alchoholic of course)?

Aprons are pretty silly. But that's why I like them. And the iPod has become the most useful tool for when the Yahoos are fighting. Turn it on, plug the ears, and voila! no fighting noise (unless of course I'm listening to that 80s punk or metal that I fashion on occasion.) Drives the Yahoos crazy too. What's the use in fighting if they cannot irritate ME?!

You do have some reasons to celebrate - the Thesaurus for your purse!!!

Glad to see the spouse is making improvements, and yahoos all potty trained, that means an ice cream night!!
