The 5th of July

Well today is actually a Holiday too. Which is completely weird.  The good thing about it, we have an extra family day this week without having to use vacation time.  Angry Kid has no camp.  I’m still recovering from yesterday though.  We had a little under fifteen people in our tiny house, which was fine, since we expected that.  We had a problem of testosterone overload though. My friend, Monique and I, were the only females here.

I bought Angry Husband a PlayStation3 for Father’s Day this year, as our Xbox 360 had a fatal illness.  When I bought the PlayStation3, I also got the game, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.  I should have known that this was a major mistake.  Because this is the view that I had for most of the day yesterday.

4th of July centered around the PS3

Monique and I were able to entertain ourselves though.  Mostly by making fun of the boys.  Because we could.  So we sat and chatted about everything.  And then we headed for the porch.  We hung out with the dogs. There might have been some alcohol involved.  We watched everyone in my neighborhood walking their dogs.  My dogs went nuts.  It was funny.

Monique and Bruiser. Her new friend.
Bruiser the Boozer

Bruiser has a drinking problem.  He has the potential to become quite the boozer.  He was a hot mess yesterday.  Angry Husband tried to groom him, which was quite entertaining.  Bruiser tried to run away and so yea, there were bald spots on his neck.

Angry Husband cooked up some hamburgers and hot dogs.  Which he tells me this morning, he forgot to eat.  I kinda laughed.  He was doing all the cooking and didn’t eat anything.  He said that he woke up at about 2am, and said that he was starving. Monique and I got sleepy so we headed towards the master bedroom.  Our entertainment of choice was HGTV. We watched House Hunters.  And of course, I’m glad I’m not the only one who does this; yelling at the people on the show.  Seriously, you decide that you don’t like a house because of the paint and carpeting color?

After hiding in the bedroom. Yes, we were hiding. I came out to this in the front room.  Angry Kid was being taught how to play the game. He enjoyed hanging out and play with the adults.  It was hilarious.

As the night went on, it was time for fireworks.  Our Homeowner’s Association puts on a fireworks show every year.  I told Angry Kid to put on some shoes and a hoodie.  He came out with rain boots on a hoodie. He said that he didn’t want to get his feet wet.  He’s smart because the sprinklers came on last year while we were watching the fireworks.

Perfect Attire to Watch Fireworks

We headed towards the usual area where we park ourselves to watch fireworks.  Angry Kid hung out with Ben and Austin.  I think he talked their heads off.  He was educating Austin on iPhone apps, because he is an expert on iPhone games.  Angry Kid was quite yappy.  I shouted over to them, “Could you please quiet your child down.”

Mentoring the adults on the iPhone

We had a great fireworks show.  Our friends with quiet impressed.  I brought the camera and tried to get some fireworks pictures. As usual, it was a fail.  It would help if I had practiced with my camera a bit more, than the ten minutes that I spent trying to program it.  These are some of the photos that I got.

You are probably wondering where I am in all of these photos? Well duh, I was taking the photos.  I asked Angry Husband to take a picture of Monique and I at the end of the night.  He took two. This was the best of the two.  I look all squinty from the flash.

Monique and I

Today, I will spend the day relaxing and probably cleaning.  I have different days off (again) so I’m going to try and adjust to them.  I hope everyone else had a great 4th of July.

Angry Kid is so cute! I love that he was playing with the big boys! Looks like fun! Oh and I suck at firework pictures too, so I did not even attempt this time around!

We had a million people here on the 4th AND yesterday. My house isn't looking so cute right now. Love AT's outfit. Smart boy to remember the sprinklers. I wish I had the memory of a 5 year old.

Batman gear is from Nordstrom. HGTV people drive me insane, but I'm still obsessed. Poor Bruiser....he's such a sad soul. He needed some booze.
