My Rascally Husband...

I know, I know. All of you avid (is that the right word?) fans of mine have been dying for me to post again. =) Well, this morning, Beau said something "blog-worthy" that I must share. Asher and I had been "working with Daddy" this morning. "We" had worked on a golf cart, a bus, checked on things at the dining hall, emptied some trash, started a burn pile, etc. (And Asher had lots of fun playing in a big mud puddle then getting hosed off before getting back in the truck.) Anyway, the next thing on the list was working on the tractor - which happened to be down by the lake and on a little road surrounded by brush that I would have to actively keep Asher out of - in the heat. I opted out of that one and had Beau bring us home. He said, "Carpe diem!" That got us to talking about the whole concept of "carpe diem" and how I love it. I said it's my life's theme. Beau doesn't believe me. =) I guess it's hard to believe when all you see is your pregnant, tired wife all day long every day. =) So then I told him that that's why I had so many adventures before I married him. And he said - and here is the reason for the blog post - , "Why don't you carpe diem the dishes more often?!" It was quite funny! But I'll have you know, that I've stayed on top of the dishes quite nicely the last few days. =)

Also, he enjoys making "fat jokes" while I'm pregnant. (And I think it's funny too, don't worry.) So here's today's "Fat Joke of the Day": "That's not a parachute. That's Mommy's dress." Hahaha. He's too funny. =)

Glad to see you posting again! So sorry I missed your shower - I was bummed when I realized we would be out of town. My mom said it was a lot of fun and Asher is a cutie patootie (as if there was any doubt)!

That is hilarious, especially the parachute comment (but only since you know that in a few months you will deflate a bit).

Oh your funny funny husband. What a card; what a corker; what a jokster. Glad you are able to take his dry sense of humor in stride. :0)
