Resolutions, sort of...


My husband doesn't really make new year's resolutions, at least out loud anyway. But I'm beginning to wonder if he did this year. Because so far, the shed has been emptied out (the items are now on my driveway, waiting for a home), and a playhouse has been miraculously constructed. By miraculous, I mean, really? is this really for children? I mean come on, I think my parents could live there...I do think it's very cool, and so do my kids...


We have Brett, the architect uncle, to thank--he took the job very seriously of writing up plans for a playhouse. He even held a skype conversation with my kids to identify their wants and needs... He did charge us, so don't be thinking his services are free or anything. But we have yet to pay up...I do believe we owe him 24 1/2 cookies for his time and expertise, but I'll have to double check my records. 

And while I haven't officially made any new year's resolutions yet, I'm thinking that perhaps a "playhouse open-house" is in order--if not a huge party, at least lots of play dates with neighbors. That seems like a good way to get to know each other; and maybe we can plant a garden while the kids play...well, that's kind of a stretch, but just maybe...
