S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y

I love you, I love you, I love you Saturday. Really, one can hardly know how much I love Saturday's at present. It might be the most I have ever loved them. During my school days Saturday was always a great break, but usually homework would be hanging over me. When I graduated college and had my first full time job (which Abe told me the other day sounded "kind of boring") Saturdays were a luxury, but Mike worked all day Saturdays so I missed him. (Side note -- my job was boring, but I thought for sure Abe would think it was "cool" when I told him how I worked in a lab testing plant and soil samples. Darn him). The past few years it has been nice to have a Saturday because of Mike's being home, but other than that, the days haven't been drastically different from my normal days of being a mother. But now, oh now, how I love love love them. Here is why: H-O-M-E S-C-H-O-O-L. Friday night I don't have to review any lessons for the next day, then Saturday morning I have no real responsibility. I don't have to make sure we are up and going -- breakfast done, jammies off, hair brushed and doing school. I feel totally guilt free to let them watch cartoons while I lounge lazily on my mom's couch. Mike is home. The kids are so happy I am not trying to teach them anything (and trust me, I'm not). I don't have to prepare lessons that night. We are around family which is pleasant and seems to make it easier to find things to do that don't cost money. It is the best day ever. Yes, I know, I know, I have always loved and still love Sundays. They have probably most consistently been my favorite day, but this perfectly perfect Saturday business is novel at present.

Ha ha! Abe is so cool! I wonder if he would have thought your job more exciting if you got to work shirtless with and bandana around your neck!
Hee hee....OK seriously though....If he could only see you there at work with your old glasses the size of most of the windows in the average house, he might think it was a little cooler! NOT!!!
O your lucky your as beautiful as you are or you would have been doomed from the day you bought those ginormous things! Come oN! Lets have a picture for old times sake!!!

For those of you who don't know, my smart alec sister knows that my poor son Abe thinks thee coolest thing ever is to go shirtless and wear a bandanna, so yah, if I told him we wore bandannas and the guys wore no shirts he'd think my lab job was waaaaayyyy cooler.

BUT, she is not talking about lab goggles. That meany is mocking my real glasses because, perhaps, they were larger than some . . .

And, miss smarty pants Megan, you'll be thrilled to know that Goldie (much like you apparently) loves to use the word "ginormous"

Mugsy said...

"Bigger than some"...hee hee.
O how I love my Goldie!!
