A Nanny and a Hearing Aid

Dave and I are leaving for Vegas in 3 weeks. I want a good base tan so I don't burn in the 100 degree sun at 10am. I got a tanning package to the local tanning salon and I went to use my first session on Saturday. It's been 2 years since I've had any kind of a tan and probably 5 years since I've been to a tanning bed.

When I'm finished with my session, I look around the room to be sure I have everything and notice, on middle the bed that I just finished tanning in is a plastic card about 3 1/2 x 3/12 that says "This bed is sanitized." Oooo - sanitized and the tan line on my back to prove it... :)

I come home and tell Dave of my misfortune. He laughs! He's been working on replacing the bathroom all day. The kids are laying down and he's working in the garage.

He goes to the basement to get the door frame to carry to the garage. He come to the top of the basement stairs, walks to the garage door and says, "Hey, can you get that door?"

Sure, I can't wait to see the door finished so I'll help anyway I can. I closed the basement door. Dave looks at me like I've lost my mind - "No, get the garage door!" Oh yeah - sorry 'bout it... :) I open the door and as he's walking out, he says, "I'm getting you a nanny. Not for the kids but for you." ha ha ha

Later Saturday night, we had Ben and Stephanie over. We were outside by the firepit and we saw a car drive by and stop in front of the neighbors. I was sitting down and Dave was standing beside me. He saw someone get out of the car and I heard him say, "Oh, banana."

I said, "Did you just say banana?"


"It sounded like you said, 'Oh banana!'"

"No, I said, 'Pizza guy'. I'm buying you a hearing aid."

A little while later, we were talking about the beer bottle I had put in the fire and the way it was melting. I told everyone it was my art. I heard Ben say, "You're so obnoxious." Again - after some clarification, Dave said, "I'm buying you a hearing aid. A hearing aid and a nanny for Mother's Day."

Can't wait.... :)
