It was a pretty unusual anniversary for Lizze and I. The boys let us sleep in and my beautiful wife let me take a nice mid-morning nap. ☺
We had a quiet morning and it was nice. No one was fighting or causing trouble by pushing the others buttons. Everyone seemed content and that doesn’t happen very often in a house with three kids on the Autism Spectrum. lol
About mid-afternoon, we took the boys to my parents house and then went to visit Lizze’s Dad at the hospital.
We didn’t stay long because he was exhausted, but it was nice to see him doing so well. ☺
After that, we ended up back at my parents house for the rest of the day.
My Dad and the boys were working on rebuilding our childhood clubhouse so the boys and my nephew can play like we did when we were kids. Elliott wasn’t feeling super helpful but Gavin and Emmett had a ton of fun. All three of the boys helped out in different capacities and I’m proud of all three of them.
It was so nice to be working with power tools again. It’s been a long time and oddly enough, I miss it.
For those who don’t remember, I owned a small contracting company that work for Ryan Homes, the largest home builder on the east coast. I really enjoyed working on houses and fixing things.
Anyway, we ended up having an impromptu cookout and that was really nice. I kept within my calorie budget for the day and I could have easily gone over.. It’s called will power, and I seem to have found some.. ☺
We got home late and everyone was exhausted.
Bedtime wasn’t a major ordeal. Afterwards, Lizze and I snuggled on the couch and watched the new Bay Watch movie, hoping for a good laugh. If you’re looking for a grownup comedy, with a hint of nostalgia, look no further than Bay Watch.
Lizze watched it only because I thought it looked super funny and it ended up being pretty awesome.
All things considered, I feel like we had a pretty good anniversary. We didn’t go anywhere fancy, or do anything spectacular. What we did do though, was spend time with family and make some amazing memories.. ☺
