Old Marrieds

We've talked about Larry's penchant for ripping out walls to install insulation, right?  He's done 3 rooms in this house so far, and - apparently - he has no plans for stopping.  Ads for insulation products have just started popping up in my sidebars, no matter what website I am on, which can only mean he has another set of walls in his sights.

Every guy needs a hobby, I tell myself.  And this is a whole lot less expensive than collecting motorcycles, say, or vintage cars.

This isn't us - we'll probably get pizza.

In other news, today is our 24th anniversary.  We'd be out to dinner right now, but I am having trouble figuring out what to feed the kids first.  I suggested we just bring them with us, seeing as how they wouldn't even BE here if we hadn't gotten married in the first place; but Larry didn't seem too excited about that idea.

So, essentially, he's offering to take me to dinner, but first I have to plan supper for the children.  The romance is almost overwhelming, isn't it?  We're almost like newlyweds, I tell you.  Newlyweds with 6 kids and 23 years of parenting under their belts...

  1. The solution is cereal. The solution is ALWAYS cereal.

    And congrats to you two!

  2. Feed them popcorn. Heck, feed yourselves popcorn! That's always my go-to meal.

    Happy Anniversary!

  3. Frozen pizzas is often our fall-back option. With my kids I no longer even tell them what to cook -- we just say goodbye and leave them to fend for themselves.

  4. Happy Anniversary!

    Right now that insulation habit sounds appealing--SoCal homes are not built for cold weather.

  5. Happy anniversary! I'm happily with Karen on old enough to fend for themselves! Pizza is always good. As far as holes in the wall, ours are mostly due to plumbing.

  6. Happy anniversary!
    At least his midlife hobby is a useful one...
    Hope you had a fun night out!

  7. Happy anniversary! I hope you had fun and that your kids were able to fend for themselves for dinner.
