I feel like I live at Home Depot. We are there. All. The Time.
When I was a kid, I hated going to Home Depot because I was terrified of the fork lifts. You know â€“ the ones that go â€œbeep, beep, beep,â€ and creep down the aisles, all menacing and scary? Yup. Those.
Brightside to living at Home Depot: Pretty flowers.
And a frozen yogurt shop on the way. This has become a tradition. If I must go to Home Depot (and face the fork lifts, which still give me the willies), then I get a frozen yogurt. Almond Butter flavor, of course.
So â€“ Iâ€™m sure you can guess how we spent the morning. Doing more yard work! Weâ€™ve been in the backyard for at least five hours every weekend for two months. I have to say, I am thoroughly impressed with the Husband; he really took a backyard of doom (AKA â€œthe rock garden,â€ as the sellers lovingly referred to it as at closing. I had to bit my lip to keep from laughing hystericallyâ€¦.) and is slowly turning it into something resembling an actual yard â€“ with grass and everything. Iâ€™ve maybe done 20% of the work, which I actually think is rather impressive. Itâ€™s mostly been about spending sweat equity and has cost us surprisingly little money.
Iâ€™ll have to do a before/after post soon!
Lunch was eaten in parts:
Toast, cottage cheese, carrots.
And a killer smoothie with one of Anne Pâ€™s peanut butter bars.
In the blender:
1 cup soymilk
3/4 cup frozen raspberries
1/2 tablespoon cocoa powder
Splash vanilla extract
Random Story: I tried to call MomHTP yesterday, but she didnâ€™t return my call until today. She called me while we were at Home Depot and said, â€œIâ€™m sorry I didnâ€™t call you back, I was at a Renaissance Fairâ€ (my mom is so awesome). And I said back in the dullest tone I could muster, â€œOh, itâ€™s okay, I just was calling to tell you that I was in labor and the baby is here.â€ And she screamed, â€œWHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT! Oh my God, NO! I missed it.â€ Haha. Oh, mom. Also â€“> she was wearing a costume at said Renaissance Fair.
