The Dunk Tank

Since Indiana Jones was running a marathon this weekend, we decided to get a hotel downtown so he could be on the starting line at crack o'dawn thirty.
It also allowed for the spawn to swim and for me to pretend we were at the beach. If you closed your eyes and held sea shells up to your hears and asked IJ to fan a palm leave at your face -- it was prit near the real thang. (Hypothetically speaking of course)My only rule -- I didn't wanna get my hair wet. It's a girl thang.
Oh silly silly me. What was I thinking .....
Telling three unruly Twerps that -- I didn't want to get wet was the equivalent to tellin me not to buy new shoes - -the temptation was more than one could handle...
ET totally did that on purpose -- Punkette.
But I am a lover not a fighter..I accept and embrace all. Mistakes happen and I was ready to forgive and move on. Give me some hugs and press forward.Uhm, wait a minute!
WAIT! PUMP THE BREAKS!
Are you trying to dunk me?? Ahh, I think I'm going down, like James Brown. HOLD MY NOSE! HOLD MY NOSE!
Help me Baby Jesus. Save me Oprah Winfrey. Tom Cruise, use your witchcraft to protect me! I feel the power of the frizz upon me.
It was over. I had been immersed -- I just embraced it and moved forward.
But this one?
This one relished in his glory
He was talkin smack about the take down of his momma.And he threatened me with his ninja skillz....

That's all I needed to hear -- I was out for the night and askin "Do you all have Cupcake Wine? Cause it makes me careless about my lack of make-up, frizzy hair, and best part of it all -- it makes my skirt fly up." IJ where art thou???

Nothing better than watching a Mama have fun with her chillens! Hey CG, I've got a question for you........should I ask it here? What's that? Ok, here goes.....I know that you do a lot of missions work and working with underprival..underprivelag....whatever, kids who don't got much. My hubby and I have two guitars that we would like to donate to a charitable organization that teaches music to those kids. They are brand new, one is an Ibanez, super nice, one is a student Mitchell guitar also very nice. Can you help us out? If so, my email is goodwifefarm@gmail.com
Thanks CG, and enjoy the "beach"!
