Well, that's what I'm going to do. A good friend is going to watch my kids and hubby and I are going on a cruise to celebrate our 16th anniversary (which happened in crazy August). I hope the seas have calmed a bit, but even if not I'm going to get pampered and have a great time.
Before I head out, I wanted to do a bit of wrapping up and planning.

InventionsNext, I just have to share a moment from my life. This should show you how lucky I am. We have so much fun in my family because of the great imaginations and the willingness to just sit around and talk.
Sunday night, hubby, the four kids (ages 6-15), and I were sitting in the living room playing one of our favorite games...Would you rather. As the night wore on and we grew more tired, things turned silly. Eventually we got to this point.
Hubby: Oo! I wonder if anyone has ever tried to bread a hot dog?
Me: And fried it?
Me: Um, that would be called a corn dog.
*shock* for half a second then...Hysterical laughter from all six of us.
Hubby: I totally breaded it in my mind and it didn't look like a corn dog.
Ash (kid #2): yeah, mine looked like all lumpy like someone threw up all over it.
More hysterical laughter followed by the decision that it was time for bed.
Yep, we often try to reinvent the wheel at my house.
