So two sons have gone out the door to Especially For Youth, and packed "plenty" of underwear~their words. And though one man's PLENTY is another man's ONLY ONE EXTRA PAIR IN WHICH TO SHART, I left it at that. Kind of a "Don't ask~don't tell" policy I'm trying out. I'm considering using it in other areas of my life.

"What the...(sniff sniff) Oh my he!!, was that you?"

Don't ask~don't tell.

See? Kind of brilliant.

Anyway, today is shaping up to be a good day. I got my mole whisker on the very. first. tweeze. I KNOW! How often does that happen? Blue moon, people.

Plus...well, that's about it.

But I'll take it.

It's "PLENTY" to me.

Postscript~HEY! I FORGOT IT'S MY ANNIVERSARY TODAY! WHAT THE 'H'? (Thanks, Boo) Anyway, I guess there's more goin' down today than just a rogue chin hair. Seems I married my husband for TIME AND ALL ETERNITY on this day, 21 years ago! Congratulations to us, peeps! I think this calls for Dr. Pepper in champagne glasses...and roses...and gift cards...and cash...and diamonds...and a sky blue convertible Jag...and surprise trips to France...and good thing he has eternity to pay for it....and lobster...and more cash...and emeralds............HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, DEAR HEART! I LOVE YOU FOREVER!

Hilarious post. Congrats on being less too sharty boys. Just think, they didn't take a ton of underwear, so there's less to wash when they get home from their Spiritual high.

Speaking of spiritual, congrats on the eternity thing. It's sorta awesome isn't it? But you're just a baby in the eternal scheme of things. I'm almost old enough to be yo mama.

Anywayz, congrats on the anniversary! I hope you get at least a trip to France or something like that.

Happy Anniversary!

"Don't ask, Don't tell" I think this is a policy I will be adopting.

Have a great day my blogging friend!

Lisa said...

Thanks so much for the well wishes, friends. I'm toasting and drinking the afternoon away.

looks like you have one more reason to be glad you have a blog because sis, you would have been in trouble with a capital T if you'd spaced the anniversary and written only about your mole hair! (but yeah - hate those little buggers!)

You are hilarious.... My husband and I just celebrated our 12th last Thursday!! Congrats on so many years and Happy Anniversary.

Congratulations to you love birds...

I know why I don't get all those things you ask for your anniversary...I have set my standards just way to low.

And now it's too late? Or not?

My sister with her 4 boys says she sends 5 pair clean underwear with them and 5 clean pair ALAYS COME BACK! Never fails!

Hose them off before they come in!

Diamonds are forever too you know. (must tell husband...that was brilliant of me!)

I know your anniversary is going to be extra special in France and stuff, now that you are chin hairless. Whew.

My kids loved EFY. I loved it more. And you a June bride. I should've known. Happy Anniversary! I think the first 20 years are the hardest. Mimi

Krista said...

My anniversary was just this past Sunday - 21 years, too! My kids do their own laundry, so I don't have to touch anyone's skiddies. I'll send you some roses for your anniversary, seeing as I have plenty to spare at the moment! ;-)

Jackie said...

More going down than a rouge chin hair.

HA! Did no one else comment on this funniness!

21 years? Is this a joke.
In my mind you were closer to 10...maybe.

You look fantastic!

happiest of anniversaries.. how was that trip to france in the convertible Jag? did you spend all that cash in Paris? or Monocco. ( yes I know thats not France but I think close enough ) and did you wear all your new diamonds and emeralds and nothing else? good choice..
