Saturday Open Thread

August 11, 2012

It’s the weekend, y’all!

And I’m suffering from “What now?” syndrome. Our whole summer revolved around this crazy construction project, which had to be done before BIL’s big fat wedding, because family members would be coming to stay.

Now the construction is done, the wedding is over and our visitors are gone. My newly expanded house is feeling lonely, and I miss our visitors! BIL and family live in CT, and we only get to see them once a year. We love them so much and just wish they were closer. The visit was all too short.

DH and I talked about how we’re both feeling a little melancholy. The wedding was SO much fun, and now there are no big trips or events on the horizon. Just back to our humdrum life. So last night we made an impromptu decision to take the kids to the County Fair. Cheesy carnival rides and fried food were just what we needed. Plus we discovered the Mexican Funnel Cake and ZOMG. Best carnival food EVER. Made my week.

In other news: Paul Ryan. WTF, amirite??

Chat away!
