She's right.

It had been a long day for me. It was evening and I was being pulled several directions.

Bath time, making sure everyone bathed.

Supper, trying to figure out what and get it ready.

Laundry, there were piles that needed to be put away.

Picking up, someone was coming in less than 30 minutes to look at the house.

There was a lot going on. On top of that I was trying to answer what seemed like an endless amount of ridiculous questions from the girls. After the tenth or so question, I became a little frustrated.





That's where this dear little on comes in. I can't remember what she asked, but my answer back to her was, "I wouldn't be surprised what y'all are doing. For all I know you are picking your nose and playing a banjo."

To which she quickly and with a smile, replied, "Mom, we don't own a banjo."

She's right, we don't. Now I'm wondering what she would do, if we did.

He remembered...

Months ago I told Ralph I would love to have some old school lockers to use for storage in our house. Then we got busy building the house and I forgot about looking for any.

I forgot, but he didn't.



He remembered, and he saw these, and he asked about them.




And he got them for me.



I'm so thankful he remembered.

Can't wait...

I can't wait until these go up on the wall.



On the back splash in the kitchen.



On the column that's going at the end of the bar.



On the wall up the stair case.



And what makes them even more special is Ralph didn't give up trying to find the ones I really wanted. He searched and found the exact ones I wanted.
I am so thankful he did, and can't wait to see the finished product!

Things not to ask.

Two weeks before Christmas, Ralph and I were in Tallahassee on a date and doing some shopping. Now, let me tell you something about my husband, he is a one of the best bargain hunters I have ever met. He can track down a good deal. Which stands to reason, because I on the other hand will pay full price for something just to be done with the shopping part.
Opposites attract.
So, he had a flyer from a 'big' girl store that had come in the mail that had a coupon on it.
He hands it to me.
Then he says, "Honey, why don't you look here and see if you can find anything." Now at this point I'm thinking he does not realize that this is a 'big' girl store. I inform him of this fact.
His response, "So. I'm sure you can find something. See, I have this coupon."
Now, I am starting to get testy and a wee bit insecure, and I do one of the dumbest things a wife can do. I ask him, "So, you think I'm fat?"
"Um, no baby, you're not fat," he responds hesitantly. "But I have this coupon, you can find something there, I'm sure."
Oh really, I'm thinking to myself. Then I ask, "So, where do you think I'm the fattest?" Again, with the dumb questions!
He doesn't hesitate, "Your legs."
*Sigh*
I asked.
Lesson learned, don't ask your husband a question that no matter what he answers, he's gonna be in trouble. Just take the coupon and shop.
