A family project

After I was struck with another burst of creative genius, it seemed as if everyone wanted to help with making a play area on the side of the house. While we have a good sized back yard (@3600 sq ft), it's not enough since our &%$#@*(those symbols can be translated as 'sweet') dog, Stitch loves to chew toys, or anything else for that matter. To fix this problem (that makes me insane!), we decided to take the little 250 sq ft side yard and move all the toys, sand box, bikes, wicker furniture and any other money-bought plastic item over there. And instead of just using it as storage, we made it another play area. All hands on deck were required, muscles were used and everyone had a great time 'working'. Now if that darn grass would just hurry up and grow there it'd be perfect.

Your blog is really good, but I wonder if you've considered doing something a little different with the backgrounds and everything. There are a lot of sites with free backgrounds that are a little more modern. I'm not trying to offend you, but yours is a little eighties.

Really, I love you and your blog. Not trying to be offensive at all!

Dear Anonymous,
You comment just confirms my blog is the way I want it to be. I am anything but modern. Sorry! Thanks for posting anyways.
