My favorite day of the year was last week. DAYLIGHT SAVINGS!!!
I haven’t been this happy since last year.
It’s still light at bedtime, and the kids are asking if we can start having dinner at 8:00 p.m. like civilized people now. Sadly, that will have to wait until summer, but there’s always the weekends! I expect I’ll get Senioritis any day now and then what kind of parent will I be? One that sits in her new Phat Tommy Adirondack chair out on her synthetic lawn, slathered in sunscreen and sippin’ on a Coke Zero all day!
Daylight savings is the bane of many people’s existence, but not mine. I wish we had Daylight Savings all. year. long. Like, let’s never do away with it again. This fall? Refuse to set your clocks back! Let’s live a higher law, a higher standard, one that helps people with SAD everywhere!
I was going to get a Hawaiian Ice machine for this summer, they’ve got a sweet deal with their winter pricing, but the new lawn is eating up all my fun money and by the time I can slap $80 bucks together for the machine and 5 flavors of syrup, they’ll be back to regular prices. Well, this way I have something to look forward to next spring!
People have asked if we’re going to get the front lawn done next, and I like to surprise them by saying NO. Next on my list of major home projects is to rip out all the carpet in the living area & hallway and slap down some beautiful hardwood or laminate floor. After that I’ll be needing my new washer & dryer, and maybe then I’ll consider doing the front lawn. But probably not. I need new paint, inside and out, too. And a bigger TV. A 32″ screen from 8 feet away is a no bueno ratio. Maybe some outdoor furniture. Raised garden beds. A new gas bbq. The Utes firepit. A girl’s got to have her priorities!
