Just gimme' a hammer!

So Mother's Day I decide to get a wild hair and buy a BBQ grill for myself. Nothing huge, nothing fancy, just a simple grill that I can use now and then. Has to be gas, HATE charcoal!

Well, I got a really good deal and the box (which barely fit in the backseat of the Grand Am by the way) said it was "quick set up" "no tools needed". OK, should have been a red flag here, right?

Took the daughter and I nearly an hour and a half to put the damned thing together! The instructions had pictures and everything (don't say it...don't even THINK it!). So we had to take the legs apart 3 times, so what!

Finally got it all put together, tossed on a burger for the daughter and shish kabobs for me. Works great! Son promises he'll be home at 6:00 for dinner.

Should have know that wasn't going to happen. He calls about 8:45 and wants to know how many burgers I've got 'cause he wants to bring the paintball team home for dinner. OK, no problem.

Next thing I know I've got 10 boys running around here (which the daughter thought was marvelous!), I'm grilling burgers like crazy, and the noise was almost deafening.

I absolutely loved it.
That's the way Mother's Day should be.

OK, so I'm masochistic.

I understand the life. I got stuck raising the sister's boys and that has created a world of hurt.Mom is 69 and the nephews are 14 and 17.Nothiing wrong with life that running naked through the streets wouldn't cure.And,you can't be masochistic, that rather pert bottom would be that color naturally if you were.Love your blog, by theway.Reminds me that life is a journey, and usually under construction.
