Tuesday has arrived! Can you believe we’re already halfway through May? I know, I know – I really do need to learn the art of not blinking. Hot weather has arrived here in the Pacific Northwest, but luckily it only lasts a few days at a time (well, until we reach the throes of summer) to more reasonable temperatures – but still nice and sunny.
And no, it honestly does not rain all the time here like people think. While we do certainly have our fair share of rain, at least when we do have sunshine and heat, we don’t have to factor humidity into the mix. I’m fine with heat, it’s the humidity I wasn’t a fan of when we lived in Pennsylvania – constant days of ‘bad hair days’ for sure!
Hope all you mothers had a nice Mother’s Day! It’s back to the training mode with the hubby again – no card, no gift, just another regular day on the calendar. Even Princess Nagger sequestered herself in her room most of the day with a major teenitude going on.
Luckily Little Dude saved the day – he made me a cute butterfly hanging decoration in school, and was super excited to have me open his gift – I love it! I’ll have to take pictures of it to show you next week, because he’s very proud of his accomplishment (as he should be).
Don’t get me wrong – at least we did go out to dinner on Friday night in honor of Mother’s Day, so we could avoid the typical crowds, and the hubby did run to the local IGA for fried chicken for lunch on Sunday so I wouldn’t have to fix lunch for the minions and him, so he gets props for that. Next year I guess I’ll just have to take the lead and give the hubby ideas on how to celebrate me on Mother’s Day…heh.
We did have a chance to visit my brother and his wife on Saturday, and my brother is a grilling king with his knack for making the best food on his grill – his chicken was to die for. We got to celebrate my mom then, too – it’s always nice to spend time with family:
That’s my brother on the left, my hubby in the tie-die shirt, me, my mom, and my sister-in-law. Good food, good wine, and great company!
Now on to some funnies! Speaking of Mother’s Day…
This happens to me every time:
This totally cracked me up:
You gotta love how this picture made it in the newspaper:
Have you heard that schools aren’t teaching kids how to tell time – at least not by the ‘old-fashioned’ clocks?
I guess it makes technological sense, considering you don’t actually have to know how to read from a clock with hands, since everything is digital – or you know, Siri or Alexa can just tell you what time it is.
I thought this was pretty funny:
This shirt cracked me up:
And finally, I’m going to leave this right here for you:
