We're adjusting

We went on a scavenger hunt. Kendall made up the rules. The list is quite different than when we lived in the city. On our list:

  • Mouse (lucky for me we did not find any)
  • Broken sprinkler
  • Bucket full of dirt
  • Black spider
  • Count the number of down spout

The well water is something new for the girls. Every time Taylor asks for water she says "I want that Whale water. Do you like whale water? I love whale water". Kendall hates well water, or so she says. She refuses to drink the water from the kitchen tap but will drink the water from her bathroom sink because that is city water. We'll just keep letting her think that.

God is a woman!

After listening to Hannah Montana's "Best of Both Worlds" song all day I started singing "I'm the best mom in whole world" to the same tune. Kendall said matter of factly "God is the best mom in the whole world. She had everyone. She takes care of everyone". Who can argue with that?

So now that is settled...

Our towels don't work

When we moved to the country we left our outdated washer and dryer behind. We bought a new front-loading washer and plan to buy the dryer next month. So we hang dry everything.

Have you ever used towels that were dried in the sun? They are crunchy. Kendall was using one the other day and said "These towels don't work anymore. They don't take the water off of my body". Yes, they are indeed broken. Crunchy cardboard...I mean towels do not absorb water. I can't wait for that new dryer.

Who said 13 is an unlucky number?

13 years ago yesterday Dylan and I were married. It felt a little weird celebrating our anniversary in the town that we were married in since we moved to Seattle shortly after our wedding.

July 6, 1996 was a beautiful, sunny day in our hometown. We were married at a golf course. My sister, his sister, my BFF, his BFF (do guys really call it that?), another friend and my brother were in the wedding. My two youngest brothers (4 & 6 at the time) were ring bearers. The 6 year old was sad when he learned that he was a ring bearer, not a ring "bear" and wouldn't be wearing a bear costume that day. Soon he was happy as a clam at the reception. He danced until he nearly passed out, ate just about all of the wedding mints, and told me how much he loved my "dress with diamonds" over and over that night. I'll never forget the feel of his sticky hands as he asked me to dance again and again.

Dylan brought me 13 roses yesterday. How sweet is that? Even sweeter is the impression it made on Kendall. She told me, very explicitly, how and why he bought 13, because we were married for 13 years. So sweet!

We have had 13 wonderful years. In a sense it feels like just yesterday. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't thank God for having Dylan as my life partner. Yes folks, even when I'm mad at him, I still know I'm the luckiest gal ever.
