Do some dishes.
Burn your thumb because you're too lazy to find the tongs to turn the sausages.
Throw out the rotten pumpkin.

Here are the people that make all this worth it...

I so LOVE her.
There aren't enough words.

How I see my Dad most of the time...

And this guy is the best man I've ever known.
He calms me down. Is my rock. Loves his nephew. Is just like my Dad.
Knows me inside out and up and down and side ways and still likes me.
Even though I made him eat dirt when we were kids.
and blamed endless amounts of stuff on him.
and hated him occasionally.
and made him wear dresses.
and am now making him my "best man/maid of honor".

Why do I have bug eyes in that picture?
I look scary.
He looks normal.
Me scary. nice.
