Five days to go

The clock is ticking. The remnants of TS Fay are being hauled away. There has been a spike in mulch sales at the local Home Depot. It can mean only one thing: the wedding is almost here. Being our first wedding, we are obsessed with details.

Kudos to young Jon. He stepped up yesterday after a Saturday tussle between myself and a 15x20 nasty old carpet left me hobbling around the house like an 80 year old. Jon mulched most of the yard but not without an economic incentive. Seems like TS Hannah left him without the right sized surf board and Mom, the chief financial officer, relented in return for some chores around the yard.

Seems like teenagers are recession proof.

glad things are coming together what'd you do to your back?? 600mg ibuprofen every 6-8 hours around the clock for the next 3 days should set you back on your feet.

Why is it our children will walk a mile to mow Mrs. so and so's lawn for free but.....the parents who, brought them into the world, fed them, clothed them and stayed up all night when they were sick, GET CHARGED! Welcome to parenthood.
