Let’s play

Tonight after our St Patrick’s day dinner we decided to play some card games. Dirk likes to joke and say we should take me to Vegas so my luck can be put to use there but tonight’s games were a little different-lol.

We were playing a game called Golf and in the first round I scored negative four. In the second round I had four point which brought my total up to positive zero. The last round I again got another negative four.

Renee feed up with her high scores complained – ” can’t you stay positive!”

“I’m just playing true to form for a bipolar- low -high-low…”

She was not amused.

Reply to yesterday

Thanks to manyofus1980 comment – “ahahahahahaha! maybe a leprachaun lives in your mind! x” – I had to share my reply with all of you.

I know there is one that likes to show up and take things from me and not return them for weeks , months, sometimes years. Things always disappear/reappeared on the 18th or 28th of the month. I think it’s because my granny found seven four leaf clovers for my birth – I still have them today, pressed and saved. I’m a lucky person for the most part so I guess he has to show up and make mischief to even things out. lol

Memory Lane

We had a family gathering today with my daughters boyfriends and another couple that their age that we have adopted for my dads ?? Birthday. It was quite the crowd for us – doubling our numbers. After dinner we watched old videos of when the girls were little and laughed our heads off at how much they have and have not changed. I’m very grateful to my family for these memories.

Story from the past

“What is sex?” Kaylie our oldest asked my husband.

Dirk concern about what to say gave his best explanation to our then young daughter – appropriate for her age and hoped that she didn’t have anymore questions.

Kaylie looked confused. “Well we had to fill out a form at school- how does the “M” or “F” fit in?”

Needless to say Dirk had a whole lot of explaining to do – mostly as to why he was beet red.

Know your place

Watching the episode of Dr Quinn – the one where they are trying for a baby. Kaylie and I start talking about the process.

Kaylie: when I have kids I’m not going to worry about the timing.

Me: that’s what your father and I did. We told the Lord it was in His hands and just enjoyed ourselves. Of course He thought we were having too much fun and sent you.

Kaylie: *laughing comically * no more excitement for you two for the next eighteen years!

Me: *looks at her seriously* and just how old are you?

Kaylie: *stops laughing * I have never felt more unwanted.

Me: * laughs hysterically *
