It’s hard to believe that it is July 4th. Where has this year gone? Better yet, when it will it finally stop raining so that we can actually enjoy our summer? Last weekend, our plans for a neighborhood block party were canceled due to the rain, which meant that I spent the entire day on the computer and catching up on past episodes of Penny Dreadful, while B.O.B. Bob spent most of the day cleaning the garage AGAIN, and slowly chipping away at the destruction of the downstairs bathroom. For those of you wondering, the long anticipated construction project is slowly taking over our lives. I feel as if we should be taking bets on how long this project will take. At this point, I’m holding at a solid two years as an estimate. So if you wonder how we’ll be celebrating this holiday, more likely than not it will involve B.O.B. Bob behind closed doors making an entire mess out of what used to be my bathroom, while I spend the day keeping Brenna out of his hair, and perhaps making a few dishes to celebrate our day of independence. I hope you at least have something more enjoyable planned for your holiday than we do, it eventually stops raining, and that you don’t burn yourself or your house down as you play with what may or may not be illegal fireworks.
