Life as we know it....

I asked my husband yesterday if he knew what was a constant in my life....he replied my love for you???  O.K. he got points for that, but I was talking about laundry.   The never ending laundry!  No matter how much laundry I do, there is always more peeking over the edge of the basket, just waiting it's turn.  Accusing as I pass by, knowing I have no intention of washing it right at that moment.
**********************
I've been waxing nostalgic lately and when I do that, I always seem to gravitate toward old pictures.  

Things were so hard when my brother was a baby that he had to drive his own stroller!  That was a few years before he had to walk barefoot in the snow to school.  He has a birthday this month but he might not want me to tell which one....sixty seven.

***** Thanks to Mary for letting me know this stroller is a Taylor Tot*******


Looks like my sister had a birthday guest who could hardly contain his excitement at being invited to her party.
Enough of that.....

************************
Yes, as a matter of fact, THIS crashed again and I had to go back to give the techie youngsters something else to laugh about......and yes, they fixed it with the push of a button or two. 

And yes, it is very frustrating to an old woman.

*************************
We're still debating over bathroom tile.......our friend has given us until March 18 to decide, get it ordered, actually get it and he's starting......which means I'm going to start saying eenie, meenie, miney, MO.


*******************************
Matt got a dog!  A labradoodle he named Gracie. Isn't she cute and calm?  That lasts until bedtime and she cries all night.  :)  Oh, the joys of training a new puppy!




We were invited over to meet Gracie and took our boys who were astounded and indignant that they weren't the stars of the night!

Good luck on the housebreaking.

Just a small sample of life as we know it....

And I'm thankful for this life!

Gracie is adorable! My neighbor has 8 kids, 4 of whom are still at home. She refers to her laundry as Mt. Neverest!

Even for those of us "Empty Nesters" laundry is STILL a bug-a-boo, isn't it!?

This was a very fun post - - - I think you should link it to Friday Fragments tomorrow.

How can we continue to generate so much laundry when the kids have left?????

I see an old Taylor Tot stroller. Weren't those great? Happy birthday to your brother.

Labradoodles are wonderful dogs, but I do not envy that training stage. Been there, done that!!!

I have been on a nostalgia kick lately too. It is amazing how that happens at certain points in your life.

You DID it!!! Welcome to Friday Fragments!!!

Oh what great pictures!! I am looking forward to seeing pictures of the puppy growing up! He is adorable!

I am thinking you might want to consider making your font a size bigger. I like it, it's just a bit small.

Love your "samples of life" - what a beautiful lab! Love her color. You are going to post pix of the floor when it's in, right? We're in all sorts of addition and remodel here - ALMOST one, hooray. We can have a show-&-tell!

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but that's not a Taylor-Tot stroller. Taylor did not have a push handle like that.
