How Was Yours?

This week-end I tried mightily to rise above my jet-lagged, iron-depleted, winter-exhausted fog. I took my mother to see The Comic Strippers (very, very funny). I went and had drinks for a friend's birthday. I cooked a giant pork roast for book club this week. I went to an axe-throwing wedding shower (hurled an axe many many times at a wooden target board at this place - very, very satisfying). It all ended with Angus having severe lower back spasms Sunday night so I had to go into full TENS-machine/icing/muscle rub physio mode as he sprawled shirtless and yelping with pain across my bed.

In other words, my week-end was full of a lot of half-naked man action, none of it remotely sexy.

In other other words, the week-end contained multiple, multiple references to pork, butts and getting wood, in very different contexts.

In other other other words, I went to the strippers thing BEFORE getting drunk and went axe-throwing AFTER, which was not the wisest course of action.

In other other other other words, the festivities started with half-naked merriment and ended with me rubbing Biofreeze into my son's ass, and I still wouldn't trade my life for anyone else's.

I cannot tell you how much I love this post. Well, possibly I can, but I did.

Pork, butts, and getting wood. This is why I love you. Well, one of the many reasons.

Oh my goodness! This made me laugh so hard. Life is bizarre isn't it?

Poor Angus! Poor you.

Can you even imagine what a list of "stuff you never thought you'd say/do as a parent" would look like? Hilarious and terrifying at once.

I am always happy to see a new post from you. : )

I did not even know recreational axe throwing was a thing.
