And now: (we look a little tired. i wonder why?) but we haven't changed too much, have we?
still very much in love!
Pretty much the same stats as the last couple years:
we have lived in 17 different places (this is somewhat embarrassing, but this is how we were brought up, by moving a lot)
11 of those places were in the first 7 years of marriage
we have owned two houses, lived in 11 different apartments, rented two houses, rented one duplex and lived with my mom for one month
we have been through 11 different vehicles (including the ones we have now)
shaun has worked 15 different various jobs (some part-time, some full-time)
i worked 7 different jobs
we have been on 3 vacations (colorado, cozumel, minnesota)
we have had 5 pets: a fish named napolean, a dog named maggie, our first cat was murray (who is now in the big litter box in the sky, as shaun says), we also had a cat named milton who dissappeared, and charlie who currently resides with us
after 9 years of being married eva was born and lily came after 12 years and claire came after 15 years
out of 17 years of marriage, at least on of us was in college for 11 of those years. we both went all the way through college, and shaun through seminary
shaun weighs 10 lbs less now that when we got married (how many men can say that!)
i was 18 with .0000001% body fat when we got married and i have had three children since so i will NEVER again weigh what i did when we got married
we still love to hang out together and we are still best friends
i neglect my blog for far too long and what do i post about?
yes, that's right, an inflatable colon.
if you're having a poopy day there's nothing like a trip through a giant colon to get you moving again. when moving through a giant colon it's best not to run. you should really take your time. but don't take too much time and don't stop, you don't want to clog things up when others are trying to get through as well.
what goes in...................................................must come out.
spring is was here! at leas for one glorious day last week.
we were able to do a little yard work, play outside on a blanket.
and eat some handfuls of mud.
well, that's what claire did.
and now here it is, april 14, and i woke up to a bit of S-N-O-W on the ground. i had to spell it because i don't even want to say it out loud.
for pete's sake people!!!! when is it going to get warm already?
i like wisconsin and all but this is getting ridiculous.
to quote my grandma quoting someone else "everyone complains about the weather, but no one does anything about it."
well this girl is going to do something about it! i will just pretend it's warm outside. maybe plant some flowers? how about continue to let lily wear strappy spring dresses to church? send the girls outside in tank tops and shorts? shave my legs? pedicure! i must get a pedicure! hide shaun's hideous worn out sweaters that i have seen him in all winter?
yes. i will start with this list for the week. i'll show you winter! spring is HERE!
p.s. look how bald this girl is! (notice mud caked around mouth and in between teeth.)
