I’m drinking coffee. Right now.
And I had some yesterday.
But only one cup.
Do you think I’ll be okay? I mean c’mon! I cannot be the first person that is addicted to the stuff.
And, in all fairness, PA school is impossible without the java.
I nearly fall asleep in class every day!
And.. I don’t know what to do because I am getting the normal amount of sleep.
There is just no stopping it – my body wants a nap at 2pm sharp!
Unless, of course, I drink coffee.
DO YOU SEE MY DILEMMA HERE?
Fourth of July Weekend: Saturday, Sunday, Monday in that order:
We went to a pool party / barbeque at a classmate’s house
I have been dying for my husband to meet this guy. I knew they would get along right away! And I’ll be darned if I wasn’t right!
I didn’t take any pictures though. I don’t know them that well!
Imagine how creepy that could’ve been!
Some times I get sneaky with my phone and take pictures…but I couldn’t risk it.
Then my whole class might think I was a weirdo!
I made them from scratch.
It looked a little like this:
This was my first time making them. They were delicious. Dear husband appreciated them very much!
Shortly after spending 2 hours on those decadent treats I caught wind of a barbeque that we would be attending later that evening.
….so I spent two more hours in the kitchen.
Making a layered strawberry/homemade chocolate pudding/graham cracker crust & frosting conglomerate.
I felt like it was patriotic enough for our holiday weekend!
After we stuffed ourselves silly, we lit giant sparklers and waved them all around the yard with as much fervor as the 10 and 12 year-old children standing next to us!
I have no pictures of that as it was too dark.
On Monday July 4th, DH and I did a ton of yard work for most of the day.
We meant to go to the beach but became distracted by our constant need to garden (me), mow (him), transplant plants (me), saw up wood (him) and the list goes on and on.
And so…since I’m doing so well with pictures today…here are some more!
I know it doesn’t look like much but I planted wild flower seeds. When they grow in it should look pretty darn spiffy.
Look at me being all Martha Stinkie and all!
(I’m gearing up to do a before and after of our deck – from the time we moved in until now so I can brag about my green thumb housewifeness and my husbands sturdy arm carpenterness…stay tuned!)
Later in the day we attended another barbeque. Though this one started to get a little rowdy! I was the only one that had school (or work) in the morning you see.
We left promptly.
No thank you!
When we arrived home it was raining – but a neighbor was lighting off fireworks (and being illegal in the process – shame for him, gain for us!)
We laid down on the living room floor and watched them through the windows of our french door!
