A glimpse into our family – the good, the bad, and, of course, the funny

Why we went out to eat tonight after 19 days of eating at home… July 3, 2012

…some days are just terrible.  I had one of those today.  I got home and sat on the couch and cried.  At least nothing could make such an awful day worse…

…then I looked out back and saw this…

…we still hadn’t cleaned up from the last storm (which included a significant lightning strike on one of our trees)…

…and I just needed to get away…

…so after 19 days of planning, shopping, cooking, and cleaning, we slipped into a booth at Papa’s and Beer and tried to unwind…

…we also took the kids to the playground and strategically timed our arrival back home to be after dark so we wouldn’t be confronted by the mess again…

…at least tomorrow is a holiday!

    Sorry about your sad day? Can we help clean-up and fix the trampoline?

    Love you daughter! We will help with the clean-up! Hope tomorrow is much better!

    At least you have a nice mom who’ll help with the cleanup. Sorry that it happened though.

    Oh Mandy, that stinks! Pretty sure I would have crumpled and cried upon seeing that. On a brighter note-I couldn’t believe how many great independent restaurants are in your area. They all sound so great and I think your bad day was totally worthy of heading out to one.

    Sorry about your day (and your tree damage). I do hope your dinner helped you cope with the situation. Did you happen to have a nice cocktail?

What do you think?
