"If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day." — E.B. White

Underwear or doughnuts?

My HUBBY deserves to be treated like a KING

Apparently you can't ask for too much from me on your birthday.
I was trying to get it all together for The Farmer's birthday...
I had the best intentions and ideas stolen off Pinterest.
He's a sweet n simple (yes I said it) man.
He doesn't ask for anything.
In fact he asks that I not buy him anything!
So I tried to come up with a few simple things to start his day in a special way;
We serenaded him in bed.
(I printed out Adam Sandler's lyrics from The Wedding Singer)
I wrote a love note on his mirror.
I made him a homemade doughnut cake.
and sausages n coffee n stoked the fire n packed his lunch...
w/treats from a goodie basket using a green theme 
b/c I'm green with envy that he's still (barely)in his thirties.
Uh huh - I'm a cougar and I recommend it! ;-P

Jack made the best card and was soooooooo proud.

No, it is NOT a turtle w/a swingset on top as I'd guessed.
shame. on. me.
He drew he n his Dad combining 
with Dad trying to figure out why the auger was jammed. again.

I also began this.
But think maybe I need all the prayers I can get too!
You see, I managed to overlook the obvious first step in caring for a man.
Making sure he had clean undies to start the day.
I even have a plan for these days!
I hide extras in each persons room so I'm not shown to be a big behind.
But he'd already found n used those!
So I scrambled madly to find one last pair while the kids distracted him.
I about came undone for the rest of the day over this.
Jack has no shortage of undies.
He loves his newest ones.
Even tho I went to tuck in his shirt at preschool after the Bday celebration
and found him going commando.
He prefers to wear them on his head I guess.

Simple family.
Simple needs.
Pinterest doesn't prepare me adequately.
Unless you count this, which I really must copy.

I guess the cat's outta the bag now, huh?

I loved it!
This whole post made me smile.
And... who couldn't tell that like all Dad's when you combine...you have to figure out the machinery at some point in the day!
You had it all together... so sorry about the clean undie thing...well, now he has something to look forward to in his 40's... CLEAN UNDIES!
this post made me smile...birthday wishes to the birthday hubby!
