TGIF

Happy Easter Weekend To Everyone!

OK this is my 2nd try.....lately that's happening.  Girls, tell me what has happened to being able to post from photobucket?

I can't copy and paste anymore.  What's up with that?

Anyway, we don't have any plans for this weekend that are really special....my family never has been one for "celebrating" with a feast or anything.  Usually it's just go to church.  You get lunch where you get lunch, if Nanny is cooking you go there.  If Mom is going out, you may get invited.

Been trying to change that.  Mainly because Tom has grown up doing the feast.  I will make a lamb cake, decorate it with coconut and jelly beans.  Ham should be in order don't ya think?

Speaking of Mr Man....he's in a funk over a boat.  He really, REALLY wants to buy this boat from our friend (the one who recently died).  He's been looking at this boat for 2 years, but I don't want the financial burden right now.  I'd feel different once the truck is paid off (about 4 payments left) but he wants it NOW.  Geeeesh.

He asked me last night why does all his stuff get put to the back burner.

Does it really?  I mean, I've asked him to form a plan....strategy.  We'll need a trailer to haul and store while he's working on this boat.  Then once it's in the water, we can keep it at my Mom's on one of the lifts.

I want him to enroll in the Boater Safety Course especially after MY ride with HIM last summer.  

I reminded him how tight the money would be (for a bit).  I asked had he been trying to save any $$$$$ for gas etc.  (No)  Why am I the bad guy?

He did get my rose garden completed for me.   I planted 4 new bushes...a white, a yellow, a coral and a pink (queen eliz).  He bought some bricks to build up the area and some cedar chips to add.

Of course I got what I wanted now why can't he?

SIGHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

What man thing?
Hell We don't pout we just buy it!
At least he asked.
Easter in my family is alway's a big thing , but over the past few years to me it is just another holiday on the calenda.r

Gee, I dont' know, maybe because a rose garden doesn't cost 1/4 what a boat and it's upkeep costs!  Right there with you sister.  My hubby pulls the same stuff!!

You can still copy and paste with photobucket. It just takes a bit of work to figure out. Copy the image and paste it into an e-mail. If it has a blue link around it you're okay. You just have to do a little work to find out how to get the link. I click twice and it works for me.
Hope you and your family have a wonderful Easter.
Hugs,

You are trying to get him the boat, but just with a few things done first, like that boat course and the truck being paid off so that is understandable. I hope it all works out. I hope you and yours have a wonderfu Easter.

I've noticed now with photobucket, sometimes, you have to hit copy a few times then a little yellow box appears that says copied.  After that, you can paste.  Have you've gotten that little yellow box while trying to copy??  If I try to paste before the box pops up, it doesnt' work.  Good Luck.

Oh I would love to see your roses when they are in bloom.  We discovered three rose bushes on the side of our house and I am looking forward to seeing what color they are going to be.  Yes, a boat.  We want one too... we have a little john boat and boy was it a pain to get it hear from FL without a trailer.  I hear ya!  And I'm wanting a pool all ready.  We will have to drive down and use yours sometime.  Hugs,
