The Apple.

18 August 2011

A few months before Dave and I got married, we borrowed his dad’s power washer. 

Now you might be surprised to learn that I like fun tools for about 3.2 seconds before moving on to the next thing. I’m kind of like the “Squirrel!” dog in the movie Up! 

The slit seeder when we re-seeded the lawn.  The hand sander when we repainted the nursery.   The leaf blower every fall.  The weed whacker that scared the bejezus out of me.  The power washer was no different.  I wanted to play around power wash the front walk in my flip flops and have Dave finish pretty much everything else.

He made me wear safety goggles.

I’m not even kidding.  He is Captain Safety. 

And when I bitched up a storm protested his response was, “Michelle, nobody likes a bride with an eye patch.”


The Apple… it doesn’t fall far from the Tree.

Even when we’re playing pretend with our belt and swim safety goggles.

OMG!!! This is so my kid. We are in the middle of a kitchen re model and my little one is wearing his hard hat and goggles all the time - "helping". Like after his dad smoothed out the sheet rock mud and tape, here he comes with his "putty knife" looking thing and draws lines in the mud. lol Dad was NOT laughing, until he said "Am I helping too?" Also, mine is always wearing a shirt with undies as well. Too funny!
