Suds in the Bucket

When we woke up this morning to the already blazin' heat the girls and I decided that washing Daddy's truck would be a fun thing to do for father's day. (Or it was just a good way to get wet.. whichever..) I'm not sure Allen's truck got any cleaner; but it was a lot of fun watching the girls work on it... Then we moved to the backyard for a little pool time and a picnic.
Al is leaving for work again tomorrow but he'll be much closer to home and should be home next weekend; so my sanity should remain intact.

So much to catch up on!

Yeah, yeah - all of this "I'm going to make time for the blog" talk but no action. It seems that not having Allen home was causing me to be busy. That's right - I spoke of his being gone in the PAST tense. He made it home FINALLY and has been here almost a week. I'm just now rejoining the real world as I have finally stopped staring at him long enough to do so. Gosh, we missed him! Of course (and don't tell him this) it's also been an adjustment. I've done everything alone and had the place to myself (not counting the offspring) for so long that when hubby wants to watch The Military Channel during my regularly scheduled reality TV viewing things are getting hairy. Ah well, I'll definitely take fighting with him over the remote over him being gone anyday!
There are a million things to blog about and I will get to them soon... I will also say that it is high time that the rest of my blogger friends get on the ball, too. C'mon, it's not like you people have lives to lead or children to raise (or bake, in Sara's case). Tell me what's going on in your lives already. Or just tell me a joke. Something.
