Five Thousand Words Worth

Whew!

Twenty-seven petunias, another 12 to 15 more assorted annuals, about a million weeds (mean, angry, class-bully hardened criminal weeds. They grow 'em NASTY out here on the prairie, folks. Kudzu's got nothin' on these weeds. These weeds have barbs and thorns and spikes and they ARE OUT FOR BLOOD, people), 48 gallons of potting soil, one husband passed out in the bed beside me, one Bean zonked out in her room, and the air conditioning happily taking the place of the heat not even 12 hours later, and we're feelin' a bit more like Memorial Day weekends of yore.

  3. I am trying to decide whether the moat around the house with alligators or zoloft for Al is going to be the method of coping with the teenage boys flocking after the beauty that will be your teenage daughter in a few short years! Not that she isn't a beauty now, but 4-6 year olds are much easier to deal with than 16 year olds with cars!

  7. Megan, that Beanchild is the most beautiful little ray of sunshine I've ever laid eyes on. She has totally made my Memorial Day. It's all rainy and icky down here in Southern Illinois, but I don't even notice now. Could you be a little more generous with those pix of Bean? Makes me wanna drive North right this very minute and give her a big ole hug for making me so happy!!!!

  8. Cathy from So. IL is my sis, Megan. She e-mailed me this morning to tell me to go immediately to check out Bean's pics. She is the most adorable thing I've ever seen!!! Could eat her with a spoon!!! My sis asked "When can we go to Chicago?" One of these days I'm going to come home from SC to that So. IL and we're comin' north on I57!!! (I guess I should find out if you want to meet US first:)

  15. Gorgeous photos! Can't believe Bean already gets to sport her swimsuit! We were hoping to take advantage of the playpool Memorial Day sales, but it rained all weekend here so that put a damper on our excitement. At least we didn't have to feel too bad about letting the kids watch tv all day so we could paint the office!
