Wouldn't have it any other way

Can we not address the elephant in the room and just not talk about how looooong it has been since the last time I have blogged?  I know, I know...I am terrible!

So much has been going on and at the same time so little has been going on.  For the most part we have been very mundane, but living this mundane life has kept me busy to the point of exhaustion!  Let me see if I can figure out what all has happened with us since my last post...

For starters, Josh's work schedule kicked up TREMENDOUSLY!  It was really bad around here for awhile.  He had a good attitude about it all; it was me that was the problem.  It was just so hard for me to go from us both being off work and home by 4 o'clock every day to him working 12 hours a day six days a week.  HARD!  But it has leveled off a little better and while it still isn't perfect it is much better than it was and much better than it could be.

We are the proud new owners of our very own hot tub!  I guess a better way to say that is that we are the proud new owners of a very old hot tub that was very graciously passed down to us but that weighed one million pounds, takes up half our patio, took two hours to fill with water, then would not heat so it had to be fixed, drained, and the tub.  Nevertheless, a hot tub we have, and a hot tub we very much enjoy!

Also, I have a new addition to my backyard paradise courtesy of my wonderful husband...

You guessed it...a HAMMOCK!!  I have been begging for one since the one we bought in Mexico disintegrated a few months ago.  The epitome of relaxation is me, the hammock, radio blaring, and my Nook...I know, the neighbors probably hate me...I cannot seem to regulate that radio to a reasonable volume level.  It is just so calming when it is blaring loud.  Sorry neighbors.

And of course we would not be Dugas' if we hadn't been fishing lately.  We just got back from a weekend expedition.  I may or may not have slept in at the camp, laid out leisurely on the dock while the boys fished, and then took a picture with Josh's biggest fish when they got back to the camp.  I'm not telling! ;)

This weekend we are going to a big birthday bash for my favorite little sis!  Cannot believe that Miss Morgan is FOURTEEN!!  Special blog post all about her upcoming birthday weekend will worries!'s just like I said...very mundane yet exhaustingly busy.  
Such is life, and we wouldn't have it any other way!
