We had a great weekend at Casa de Carpool, except for the part where the cat brought a not dead snake into the house and Mr. CPQ had to bravely ride in on his white horse and rescue me from said snake by stomping on it and then leaving the bloody mess for me to mop up.
I will NOT complain about that because I know how much Mr. CPQ hates snakes and it was a true measure of his love for me that he would overlook his own discomfort to save his wife and children from the clutches of the six inch foot slithering creature.
And the laundry room needed mopping anyway.
We took the kids out for dinner Friday night to Red Bowl Asian Bistro and JJ was not pleased about going because he doesn’t eat Asian, but once we walked up to the front door and saw that they served Chinese food he was fine with it because in his little head, Chinese food is very different from Asian food, and how I don’t know, but we went with it.
Saturday was the boys’ basketball game where we were able to witness the horror of that rite of passage where your child forgets what end of the court he’s on and takes a shot on the opposing team’s goal. Fortunately, the shot went wide and we ended up losing by 20 points anyway so it really wouldn’t have made a difference.
Saturday night, Mr. CPQ and I went out on a date and did enormously exciting things like shop for new socks for him.
Sock shopping must be a big deal for men because we stood in front of this display for quite a bit of time and he did some hemming and hawing over Blush versus Bashful but truth be told, I couldn’t tell one whit of difference in color among those eight hundred and forty-six million pairs of hosiery.
I did have to laugh at these, though.
Sunday we went to church and then spent the rest of the afternoon cleaning out the garage. Travis has been wanting to ride his bike, but it needed a little work, so we took it to the repair shop to get the brakes fixed and when they saw that it was a “special” bike, they did the repair for free. That was an unexpected kindness and it made me weep when Mr. CPQ told me, so I didn’t want to pass up the opportunity to thank them publicly.
Trek, you have a big heart, and you’ve made one little kid (and his mama) very happy.
Have a nice day.
