What A Chore!

We spent this past weekend house and dog sitting for my brother-in-law. And let me tell you, it was such a chore!
It was a chore to sit inside the house and have to look out on this view.

It was a chore to watch our oldest two children play together in the lake.

It was a chore to watch our youngest two children build intricate rivers and roads in the sand.

It was a huge chore for Eric to lose at least 30 years worth of maturity and become a kid again.

It was a chore for Gracie to trail the dogs all weekend long and imitate their every move.

It was a chore to relax as a family on the couch while watching a movie on the 5 foot flat screen tv.
It was a chore to build a bonfire and sit around said bonfire while roasting marshmallows and telling ghost stories.

Now if I could just figure out how to make all of my real chores as trying as these chores!

What a wonderful, mini-vacation weekend we had.

I LOVE those kinds of chores. What fun you must have had! My husband and I have decided our family needs a break so we are discussing where to go and what to do. Your vacation looks exactly like what we need to do!

A Grammatical Disclaimer

I freely admit to consistently using improper grammar in the following areas:
1. I like run-on sentences.
2. I have a tendency to end sentences with a pronoun. (I really do. I can't help it.)
3. I always seem to use passive voice in my sentences. (See?)

I've been trying to break this habit, unsuccessfully, for years, so now I just accept that as my writing style, and since I'm not writing for grades anymore, I embrace it. (Again, see?)

Hence, I invoke Blogger Artistic License for this blog!
