Last night, inspired by Jill’s Facebook photo of their movie snacks, Dave and I made a Redbox visit (and then I posted my own pic of my movie snacks to Facebook. Both my sisters commented, “Your snacks suck balls.” We had apples, strawberries, cucumbers, popcorn, and those sugar-covered orange slices; or, as my brother put it: “Your […]
Have I mentioned the garden? I think I have; this spring, Farmer Dave put in some raised beds so that we could try our hand at growing more than our traditional cherry tomatoes in a giant pot on the patio. Then– because my Davy does nothing halfway– he started about […]
….And no, Cam doesn’t have a foster father or a stepfather or an adoptive father. Yesterday was Dave’s birthday as well as Father’s Day, so Cam combined the two all day. I had asked Dave what he wanted to do yesterday– we were out of town overnight on Friday and would be returning home […]
I was in the kitchen, minding my own business, when I heard a knock at the door. Assuming it was one of the neighborhood kids, I said, “Get that, Gabs?” — and promptly heard a man saying, “Hi! Can you get your dad? I’ve got a delivery here for him?”
MY BROTHER-IN-LAW: When’s Dave get back from Vegas?
BIL: He’s gonna be tiiiiired. –Unless he’s been skipping the nightlife and going back to the hotel at the end of the day?
JULIE: At 3:31 this morning, he texted me a photo of a couple of ladies wearing feathers and glitter, chatting next to a dumpster.
See, cuz, like: Dave’s the sheriff.
DAVE [heading out to lacrosse practice]: Hey, by the way: nice post today.
JULIE [absently] : Thanks.
DAVE [meaningful look in JULIE’S direction]:
JULIE: Oh. Right.
DAVE [turns to go, chuckling. In high-pitched JULIE voice]: “Ohhhhhhh, I’m going to be ENSLAVED…”
JULIE [calls after him]: Well, it’s […]
I just think she’s unbearably cute in her competition dress.
On my way to a weekend of Irish Dance competition on Friday, I was on the phone with my brother Mike, and he asked where we were headed. I said, “The girls and I are going to a weekend of competitions. Dave and Cam are […]
He was so so funny. You just have no idea.
I hear Dad’s voice in my head all the time. He was such a font of little sayings and phrases, and when I’m stumped as to what to do, one of his phrases will pop into my mind: “Do it and you’re done,” […]
Addie J’s performance as Helen Keller in her classroom’s Wax Museum took place this morning. It was completely fabulous. Each child wore a big “Push to Start” button, and when it was pushed, the child recited his or her speech in first person: “Hello. My name is Helen Keller. I was born in Tuscumbia, Alabama…” Their various costumes ranged from an incredible Pocahontas, complete […]
DAVE: Hi! So I’m listening to the radio, and I just heard that women who match their bra to their underwear are happier people.
DAVE: So I thought you might benefit from that information.
DAVE: Matching underwear.
JULIE: Wrong number. [click]
