The other day I asked the girls if they would wash my car. At first they were hesitant, but for some reason, the lure of putting on their bikinis for the first time this season was too much for them.
I sat out back at my computer, and all I heard were girly squeals and giggles coming from the front yard.
Why can't I find this much enjoyment out of doing this crap chore? (Btw... that's Chuck and Larry's house with the pickup in the driveway. New here and don't know who Larry is? You can read about a Justine/Larry experience here.)
Madison was having a blast soaking herself.
Now back when I was a kid this would have been a perfect time to take a good long drink straight from the hose. Why is it that those days are gone? Do hoses suddenly hold more cooties than they did 30 years ago? I swear, I don't think my friends and I ever stopped playing long enough to go inside and get a drink. Why do that when there was crisp, cold water right there for the taking? Of course, that was Long Island water, and if you've never lived in NY you wouldn't know that we had the BEST water for drinking straight out of the tap. Or the hose, as the case is here. You would not want to do that with Florida water. Ewwwwwwwww! And dammit, it NEVER runs cold in the warmer months because the water pipes are too close to the ground surface. Need a cold shower? Forget it. You'll have to fly to Alaska or something.
So if you live in FL, unless you're one of these...
You should stick to this...
Hmmm... the hose was on, my kids were wet, but my car looked decidedly dry. I ran my finger down the door panel and it was still filthy.
So I made them start all over again.
Yep, I'm a mean, mean mommy! But ya know what? They loved every second of it!
Well peeps, I'm having this post scheduled to publish while I'm at my in-laws' for the holiday weekend. Oh joy, a 4 hour drive Saturday, and the same Sunday. My feet are swelling just thinking about it!
And just remember, this is post #199, so the next one is my Mystery Giveaway!!! Woooooo hooooooooooo!
Happy Easter to all my friends in Blogland. I love and admire all of you so much. Let's not forget that this holiday is not just about bunnies and candy and eggs.
