So, last...Wednesday night...before the big garage sale, We had this impromptu Cook-out. The day certainly didn't start out that way, I can assure you.
The day started w/ me tending to some business, paperwork & phone calls...sipping coffee & doing dishes. By 9am, I was requested at my Mother In Law's to help her clean out her attic.
Now, if I have not mentioned this: when my Mother In Law calls, I go running. If I have to rearrange my whole week to help her out, I will. She watches my child 3 days a week for me, and babysits just about every time we've asked for a sitter here & there. She does it all for free. I will never have enough $$ to pay her back for all that she does for us. When Hubby was sick, my mom & his mom took turns being at our house to help out. She'd spend the night... she'll help me clean house if I need it. she'll send Hubby home with dinner for us when he goes out to her house to pick up Gage.... I mean, seriously...she rocks.
So, Wednesday, I went out to help her clean out her attic.
...Leslie came over to help me price stuff for the garage sale. Lucky for me she did: she brought the pricing stickers!
...Hubby says, "I think I'll invite Mark over for a beer later."
...Then, since Nathan's just right across the street, he invites Nathan.
...Then, Tera calls, "If Nathan's coming over, so are we!" (Tera & Aubri)
...Then, Pam calls Mark, "Hey, where are you?"
Next thing I know: it's dinner time, I haven't gotten a damn thing done, and I've got a house full. Mind you, at this time, I was still filthy from my fun-filled day of attic cleaning & garage sale sorting.
So, I showered in the midst of the little get together, and then we whipped up a thrown together dinner.
Aubri had a blast. After I showered, Tera had to throw her into the tub. She was outside eating dirt!!!!
As the night slowed down, Gage was in heaven just snuggling with Pam.
I think Pam enjoyed it too!
So, it was a good night. An impromptu night.
