i wish i was on a beach somewhere

By the time you’re reading this I’m either having surgery on my left eye for the double vision or I’m recovering from the surgery.

Unfortunately, neither option involves Ryan Reynolds.

Big thanks to Pete for helping me out with this very nerve-wracking day.

Since I’ll be out of commission I’ll replay an old post from a much simpler time.

Why shovels will never replace picture frames as housewarming gifts

“So, what do you think about me digging a hole in the backyard?”

A single look from me apparently left scorch marks on my husband’s forehead.

“WHY? Why would you dig a hole in the backyard?”

“I was thinking I could build a hot tub!”


“Peter, you know…they have companies that do that…they call them HOT TUB COMPANIES {I know, you’re staggered by my mad arguing skills. SHUT it, I was tired, this was only day 2 in the house} and they do this thing called ‘building hot tubs.”

“Yeah, but I read on the internet blah blah blah and then I could make blah blah blah and then we would have blah blah blah and beer.”


“You know what? You should DO THAT!”

Peter gave me his “Have You Been Drinking Before Noon?” look.

“NO! I’m totally serious, you should absolutely start digging that hole, like, right now. I’ll go get you a shovel. AND THEN? I’m going to check online to buy some cows…I’ll raise them right here in the backyard…then kill them and skin them WITH.MY.OWN.TWO.HANDS. and sew that leather couch I’ve been wanting so bad.”

He smiles at me.

I smile back.

“So…you’re saying don’t dig the hole?”

“Don’t dig the hole.”

    Hope by the time you’re reading this you have a bright, shiny (nearly said new but that would make NO sense!) healing eye with better single vision in the near future.

    I wish you were here to explain stuff to my husband.

    Hope things go well …went well today.
