Visit

I just arrived at my parents' house for a 2-week visit. I'm excited to have this time to see them. (And in the interest of full disclosure, I'm excited to see the nearby beach, too!) My new job doesn't start until the end of the month, so I have a few more weeks of carefree summer. Before I left, I did a huge grocery shopping trip for Husband, where I shopped with reckless abandon, pretending that I've never heard of "low-fat," "light," or other such healthy options. And I'm not sure what was bigger: my cart full of hamburgers, bacon, and other meat, or Husband's smile when he saw his dinners for the next couple weeks. While Husband will be fine in my absence, I'm not sure I can say the same for our plants. When I asked Husband if he wouldn't mind watering the tomato plant, he replied, with a puzzled look, "We have a tomato plant??" Let's just say that I won't be expecting any tomatoes when I get home.

Hopefully your husband and plants will survive while you're away!

LOL! It took my Beloved years to realize that we had things outside that needed watering. Here is my tip: Let hubby grow some chili plants. Mine was suddenly very interested! Have a lovely visit with your family (and the beach).

LOL! Men! That's too cute, I hope he survives and it sounds like he will be one happy man but even more so excited when you return!

Sounds like something Sean would say.

I'm sorry to hear about your tomato plant... your right it probably wont be there when you get back. Hope you said your goodbyes when you left.

I'm worried about leaving flyboy with the kids for the two nights I'm in the hospital with the kids (it works better to have my mom with me at the hospital and him with the kids since he's always gone). I asked him the other night if he could handle -1's nightly medicine and he actually said that he expects the same detailed list I leave the babysitter.
