So this weekend we had a garage sale. It was Lazy Dad’s idea, not mine. So guess who was “conveniently” out of town the first day of the sale?
Mm, hmm. Lazy Dad.
Yes, I was left to fend for myself. Thank God we have fabulous neighbors who also wanted to have a garage sale and they were willing to help set things up with me. We hauled heavy garage-sale-item-covered tables in and out of garages more times than I care to recount.
And I also thank God that our fabulous neighbor is a lawyer, so I can sue Lazy Dad for neglect and slave labor.
In other weekend news, I saw a lady pulling out of a convenient store with something on the roof of her car. I was at a red light and she was pulling out in front of me to turn the other direction so I rolled down my window and said, “Ma’am, you have something on your roof!”
To which she replied, “I’m defrosting my chicken.”
No lie, people. That’s what she said to me as she drove past me.
Defrosting chicken on top of your car roof. It’s how things are done here in South Toledo.
Speaking of South Toledo. Check out the sign my kids and I discovered as we walked to the library this weekend.
We keep it classy here in the South End.
Oo! Oo! Speaking of walking to the library. Every year around this time the kids and I impatiently await the bloom of honeysuckles on a particular chain link fence on the way to the library. And this weekend we discovered they were ready!
You do know what’s awesome about honeysuckles, right?
When I was in Elementary school in my hometown of Nacogdoches Texas, honeysuckles grew on the chain link fence surrounding the playground. It was there that I discovered what you do with honeysuckles. The kids on the playground would hang out at the fence and eat the “dew drops” inside of the honeysuckles.
Did you know that there’s a tasty little dew drop inside each honeysuckle?
So several years ago, on a walk to the library, I saw this fence covered in honeysuckles and had to show my kids the secret dew drop God put inside them!
It reminds me of that fence around my school’s playground.
And now is making a nice memory for my kids.
Also this weekend I went on a date. But not with Lazy Dad.
I went with Bible Man!
Well, this cute little Bible Man.
Several weeks ago at church this cutie came up to me and said, “Miss Stacey, I want to go out to eat with just you and me next week.”
So I said, “Um, did you just ask me on a date?”
“Yes,” he replied. But I’m pretty sure he didn’t know what a date was.
It was so cute I quickly relayed the story to his parents. And then Lazy Dad caught wind of it, who became enraged with jealousy and turned into an evil villain right before our very eyes.
So no wonder he had to show up for our date in a Bible Man cape. He had to fight the evil villain for me.
After he defeated Lazy Dad and turned him back into a nice loving pastor, both family’s went to McDonald’s together.
It was a chaperoned date.
And my date played in the playland for pretty much all of the date, but I was okay with that.
And so was Lazy Dad.
