Life as Lou

What It Looks Like

Got new patio furniture garage sale-ing! I'm going to give it a new coat of lacquer, and I've already started washing the cushions. It is going to look brand new by the time I'm done with it! Then I'm going to add flowers, planters and pots and actually like my back patio. Chris and I got home from church on Sunday and crashed out here- it was almost 80 degrees!

Mom and her Daisy Dog. I love Daisy- she is so well trained and sweet and funny. My mom is the dog whisperer. Caesar Milan should watch and learn.

Watson all happy in his kennel. I am not a dog whisperer at all, and this guy still needs to learn to mind his manners. He is slowly getting there. I wish my mom would come back for a month!

Horribly Americanized "fish and chips" that I ate on St. Patty's Day Eve at an Irish pub. Tasted fine, but you expect more from a place called Dublin's, ya know?

Angel Jovibarba heuffelii- one of my absolute favorite plants. Beauty, no?

Watson getting loved on by Chris. I am pretty sure we could wrap Watson's tongue all the way around his head.

I don’t usually like cell phone photos, but I got a new window’s phone and it has some decent capabilities, and a fun photo app, so with my attempts to take more photos, it has been utilized a lot more.  This is what it looks like at our house with the kids out of town.  The pic of my mom is from when she was here before, but aside from that, it is just me and Chris, and we are enjoying that.

I think we should talk someone into taking our kids for a week or two every year- this has been a good little marriage retreat at home. It is nice to have the time and energy to actually see someone. Usually, I feel like we are just dancing around each other, each juggling our seventeen plates, trying to keep the kids happy and moving forward.

I feel like there is hope for retirement, and we might be ok with all the kids gone. Ha!

    I loved going to either grandparents house for a week in the summer. It’s was a good year if I got to go to both. I can remember Grandma Phyllis buying chocolate licorice and oreos for me before we would leave Fargo; Grandma Donna would always send me to Dairy Queen at least once. :) I think I’m going to cry now.
