Cream of the Crop


It thundered today. Big, loud thunder. And then it rained. We left the windows open and smelt the rainstorm. It was rejuvenating.

Spence took the day off work.

Instead, we worked on tiling the master bathroom while the kids sat on the massive bed in all its massive glory and devoured butter popcorn. And then they both took a nap.

While the kids dreamt, Spence and I cranked up Pandora and tiled like we were getting paid to do it. Except nobody would really pay us, because. . . well, were annoying. Spencer can't sing a song without changing the words and I can't listen to a song without singing back-up. And neither of us can sing a note in tune. And then Spencer makes up jokes about stupid things, and I laugh really loud, because I think he's funny. And then we play 'remember when' and laugh at some of the dumb things we've done together.  And there's quite a few.  And then we swear that we are getting more mature. Except for not really, because we're not. And we know we're not. And then I'll try to put a tile on the wall and Spencer will tickle my armpit, or pinch my butt. Because, chivalry is not dead after all! And then I tell him to knock-it off. But he never does. And I know he never will. And then we will sit back and admire our FAYN-CEE improvements. And we'll talk about what a good construction team we make.

Because if you ask me, Spencer's a dang good construction foreman. And not to brag, but I totally ROCK at being the construction peon.

I'd hire us!

Probably.

That sounds about how our home improvement projects go, maybe that is why it takes us so long to complete anything :) I love that you guys know how to have fun together!!! If you were all mature and stuff you would probably forget how to have a good time in the face of major bathroom remodels :)
