Like how I celebrated the final arrival of this:
No, not the child responsible for most of my gray hair, I meant Pool time!
Also I needed to thank you all for your very kind and supportive comments and pass on the news that #1 Son's records are officially sealed, YAY! (there's still the matter that it occurred and it could still hold him back, but I'm hanging onto the "sealed" part).
There's also the opportunity to eat my words.
I wonder what nagging actually tastes like?
You know that "Behind every great man..." quote? Well, I take this "great woman" responsibility very seriously, so I nagged like nobody when the Hubby was supposed to be preparing for his Master Sergeant test.
I pestered him when I thought he spent too much time on his iphone. I vexed him when he did ridiculous internet searches for hours and I scolded him when he played "See how long it takes me to flip through all 600 channels on the telly".
He didn't study.
I may have mentioned that I wouldn't feel sympathy for him not making it either.
Well Lucky Louie passed and is now a MSgts (that little "s" means select and he has a "line number" for when he gets to sew on that extra stripe).
What a great way to go into the Memorial Weekend.
I'm proud of the Sexy Guy and appreciate everything he does to provide the lifestyle that we, as Americans enjoy.
To all who served, are serving or will be serving, THANK YOU.

I have to go find some ketchup now to go with my humble pie.
