Sanity or Patience: choose one.

Do you ever have one of those moments where you think, "HA! I am sane!" Then you step in dog poo with your bare feet and remember it was your idea to get the puppy...?

Friday, February 20

Fx4: Bubbles

Head over to Candid Carrie's to participate in her Friday Foto Finish Fiesta!
This is what I was doing last Friday morning:
My Dad, wonderful man that he is, decided to take off to the casino for two days of mild gambling and an extreme steak dinner... with my sister and I. Yay! My Mom, beautiful woman that she is, kept All 3 Kids. Overnight. My parents are awesome.
My dad went off to the casino Friday morning while Candy and I slept in... and when we woke up after a glorious 8 hours of sleep, there was nobody who needed us. What did we do with ourselves? I, for one, put wayyyy too many bubbles in the jet jacuzzi. Who knew you aren't supposed to use the entire tiny bottle?
Candy laughed til she peed - luckily, the toilet was right there and we're not modest (hey, we've given birth in front of each other - not much else to hide).
After a lazy morning such as that, what was a girl to do but enjoy a large brunch buffet, win over $500 and share it with my lovely family members who helped make the mini-vaca possible.
(yes, that's me behind the paint in the photo - I may not be modest, but I'm not putting my face up here with no makeup! What if Ben Affleck reads my blog?!)

So glad you had a good trip. And the bubbles, accidental or not, look awesome.

Ann On and On... said...

That sounds like a great time. $500.00, sweet!

This Mom said...

Yep, jets make bubble multipy.

Jealous of your 8 hours uninterupped sleep.

BoufMom9 said...

Cate - they were great, and so funny.

Ann On - yeah, half of it came from the card tables - my first time!

This Mom - now I know!

BoufMom9 - it was totally an accident.

Snarky - thank you. It was unbelievable.

Cookie Girl - well, it wasn't Martha, but it was sure fun.

Megan - It was like being a sneaky kid again, hoping Dad wouldn't come back and find the room flooded with bubbles and be in big trouble.

Morgan - You can't even see the tub for all the bubbles, and it was a HUGE tub.

Terra - bubble jet tubs are great, and only a little scary. :)

MuseSwings - sharing is part of the fun, especially when they were such losers.

Stesha/Wenda - thanks, Sitsta! Nice to see you here.

Harriet - thank you.

Carrie - haha. I think it has to be over a grand to claim it. I'm going with that.

Petals - I'll be over to your place soon, too.

Joan - It so rocked! Only a day away from home and I was so refreshed when we got back.

I completely understand the looking-our-best- for-Ben idea. I was unaware he was into moustaches on the ladies...
