Cha Ching

So 3 hours and $300 later our sink is cleared. {gasp} That is a lot of money. Actually, it was a pretty serious thing, they had to cut the pipe in the basement. They might have mentioned scraping the dishes before putting them in the dishwasher, not pouring grease down the drain (I have an aversion to sitting grease now), and they might have found the ENTIRE pot of egg noodles that fell in the sink this week (darn strainer).

This morning we got groceries. On the way home Kendall was trying to fall asleep so I said, "Guess what, there are guys at our house!" This perked her right up and she said, "I'm going to kiss him and he can hold me. Do they want to play with me?" Has anyone read the book The Five Love Languages? It's a good book and I would recommend it; Kendall's love language is very clearly physical touch, but I digress. We walk in the door and Kendall yells at the top of her lungs, "HIIIIIIIII" then she walked over to the guys and said, "What's your name?" Well, after Virgil and Lee introduced themselves they proceeded to have a conversation about Dora and Virgil even said, "I'm a Scooby Doo man myself". So nice of them, I kind of felt bad that they left wearing our dinners.....from the past 5 years.

I had planned to clean the fridge and mop the floor today but since the sink still wasn't ready I couldn't, hopefully tomorrow before Susan comes. I did however, get this done!


  1. I love Kendall the little extrovert. Her love language is definitely physical touch. I think mine is presents. :-) hee.

  2. You're married to the right guy then 'cause Justin gives such thoughtful presents!

    I like a little bit of all the languages, ha but mine is touch just like Kendall's. As Kate get a little older I'm beginning to think that is hers too.

  3. Mine is acts of service, with a little of each of the rest thrown in. But Greg can wash my car, take out the trash, or do some handyman work and I KNOW he loves me!! Greg's is words of affirmation, which I really have to work at because that is pretty low on my list. I try to remind myself of this need of his.....


  4. GREG, I'm SO impressed that you read this book, way to go big brother of mine! My newest favorite is "Love & Respect" it's another great martial book. And for the women out there I would also suggest "For Women Only" author is Shanti..I blank on the last name, I'll have to go look it up. Both are eye opening.

  5. Ashley, I hate to burst your bubble but Greg didn't actually read the book. We discussed parts of it and I already knew from living with him what his love language was. I was thinking of buying the Four Seasons of Love, also by Gary Chapman. But I will check out the two you suggested as well.

    You will take the computer to Europe so you can post from there??

    love, p

  6. Ha ha ha, Well, I guess he gets points for being aware of what your language is. Read Love and Respect first I think that the other kind of supports it but L&R is the better one.

    I'll have Brian's work computer and try to blog when I can. 24 hours from now I'll have only been there a couple of hours!
