Yep, she's back

We were sitting around on Sunday night ... just Roo, Wonderhubby and me. We were watching a little prime-time television and quietly enjoying each other's company.

It had been another too-short weekend, filled with errands, football picnics, cheer practice, our traditional $1.49 hot-dog-and-soda combo lunch at Costco. The usual.

And I sighed dramatically.

"I don't want to go to work tomorrow."

Roo turned to look at me and shrugged.

"And I don't want to go to cheer tomorrow. But you know," she continued, looking deep into my eyes, "we ALL have to do things we don't want to do ..."

*pregnant pause ...*

And I fell out of my chair laughing.

OK, people, if you haven't checked out my post on the Room 704 site, now would be the time. Leave a comment too. That way, I can look like one of the popular kids. Heh heh heh.
