Happy Daddy's Day!

Well, to be honest, the only reason it was a Happy Daddy's Day is because Chris and I try really hard to have a good sense of humor. The day was one big train wreck after another. :)
Addie slept extra long this morning, so we decided to go to an early lunch instead of breakfast. Chris picked IHOP and lunch went off without a hitch, once we got back in the car it was a whole different story. Addie started crying and just couldn't be consoled. We had several errands we had to take care of, so we all just had to tough it out. Addie is normally a very happy shopper, but our fellow shopping companions at Home Depot and Target were probably thrilled to see us leaving! After our second stop, Addie fell asleep (way out of the ordinary), so we took advantage of that time and I ran in to another store to scratch off one more thing on our to-do list. When we got home, Chris unloaded the car and Addie and I decided to make a quick run to Publix. Thanks to the nice lady in the deli, Addie was hooked up with a slice of chicken and cheese, which seemed to improve her mood a bit. We stopped to talk to four different friends during our shopping trip, but finally managed to get back home within an hour with Chris' requested meal for dinner but without the wine, because of course you can't buy alcohol in Shelby County on a Sunday...errr! When I got home, Chris met me outside and pointed out the obvious...we could smell gas outside the house. I called Alabama Gas and they immediately got someone on the way. Turns out, we had a gas leak at the meter and it had to be replaced! After the drama of the gas leak, Chris decided he was going to start putting up our new light fixtures. Three hours later, we had a new fixture in the foyer - he did a great job and had he not, I never would have pointed it out! As our evening started to wind down, Addie became more and more upset....WHY???? She spiked a 101.9 fever! For the love of all things good! Chris will forget all about the drama of the day as he is enjoying his three day, two night golf trip that I gave him for Daddy's Day. He deserves it. We love you! On top of it all, Julien was away for the weekend. He misses so much when he is gone and it's just not the same without him. What a day...
