Keepin' It Real

Life has a funny way of keeping things real. Yesterday, we put out a shameless solicitation for cookies that my son bakes and sells. He does Kendo which is a form of Japanese martial arts and enjoys it. There are tournaments and equipment and travel involved so we told him that he would have to help finance this little endeavor. Our friends and family stepped up to the plate beautifully. I was feeling all glowie inside.

Then today happened and what do I end up spending most of my morning on? Cleaning out the sewer line running from the house. Talk about a real downer. Stinky. Dirty and heavy. I don't ever want to do that again. I will have to but I don't want to.

I'm still selling the MG

You (and Max) did a fabulous job on the root-clogged sewer line. I'm very proud of you for saving us money and doing it yourself. Dinner with you and the kids at Molly's was a fabulous and well earned treat for all of us.

I'll just go on record and say the no-bakes are yummy

The no-bakes are the bomb.

Thanks honey. Now I chalk up one more thing that I had never done before and now know I can.l

Okay, when you're back, I'm definitely getting the no-bakes. The peanut butter ones are da bomb too though. :)
