I just wanted to take a post to say how thankful I am for him! He's been out of town for about half the year. We got to go to Wyoming with him for 5 weeks (see Wyoming under Categories and you can see all the fun we had), which was AMAZING, and we are so thankful for that. He worked long hours there, but we got to have him all to ourselves on Sundays.
Anyway, he is home now and we didn't really have any good Turf Wars like we usually do when he's been gone a long time and Momma's been runnin' the show (The Kerrie Show, you know). Having him home has taken so much of the load off of me ... I'm more pleasant to be around because I have someone helping with the kids and with the house and watering the grass and garden and taking the kids on long bike rides and someone to confide in. My best friend is back.
Lately we have been talking about the future ... do we want to move to a place with some land? How much will that cost? How much will it cost to replace the roof ourselves (meaning him and some friends with some pizza and beer)? New windows? How much fun will we have working side by side this winter tearing down wallpaper and spackling/sanding walls and painting the entire main level? Will we want to kill each other or kiss each other?
Is it wrong that I think it's so hot when he does things like wash our daughters' hair in the sink after getting the gum out?
