FFYF: End of a Tough Week Edition

luxury bathroom

Whew! We made it to Friday. I have updates and developments to share, but for today let’s just think happy thoughts, shall we?

My weekly giggle: Last night all the boys and the dog went out and played in the rain. When they came in soaking wet I insisted that people shower. After all, if you’re already wet, why not lather up and finish the job? While I cooked dinner, various boys cleaned up. The last to hit the bathroom was The Manager, right after dinner.

He was less than pleased at the prospect, as playing with his twin was a much higher priority. “But we just started a war!” he moaned. I just looked at him and waited. “Okay, but can I take a sh-bath?” he asked. I smiled and said, “Well, I had more of a bower in mind, but go ahead.”

    You must have shared

    Nice words, indeed this is the way you can win someone by loosing anything. Even I have some interesting incidents where we used to make a lot of fun. One of my friend says “I don’t know why how does people start scratching their body on 30th day with out a bath:; I face this on the 28th day”. So such incidents really make me laugh.
