Daily Dose – 9/25/2012; Wax On

"I think I've found the job I hate the most in the whole world." My son explained brimming over with honesty.

It all began as we took another day off from school, three weeks of Autumn break and the sky is the limit.  "What should we do today?!"  I exclaimed.  

"Whatever it is, I don't want to go anywhere." my younger boy called out.

Be Careful What you Wish For

Today I invented another raw-vegan smoothie.  

Ingredients:

Frozen honey dew.

1 lime

vanilla protein

1 banana.

The whole thing was incredible… to celebrate being so healthy for breakfast and lunch, I enjoyed another invention for my LATE dinner.  Pepperoni Chicken Breast.

Ingredients:

Pepperoni

Boneless / Skinless Chicken Breast.

What did it taste like? … like Chicken with Pepperoni.  Really good, if you like that kind of thing.  My favorite part about it was the very crisp pepperonis.

The 'highlight' of the day was washing and waxing the car.  Now that I have a house, we can personally keep the car clean.

I taught the children some valuable lessons:

  • Work Hard
  • Whistle While you Work
  • Attention to Detail
  • Time together is good, even if you're doing something you don't love.
  • I have no idea how to wax a car.

That last lesson wasn't intentional.  Turns out… you aren't supposed to apply the wax to the whole car and then buff it off of the whole car, at least not in Arizona where the wax paste dries to a solid concrete shortly after being applied.

Everyone loved the washing part… we laughed and had fun through the drying, and even for the first hour of waxing our spirits were high.  In the second hour of waxing I let the girls go watch TV… between the third and fourth hour of waxing we lost our motivation, I kept looking for it, I looked in every nook and cranny of the car, but with no luck.  I sent the children in so I could finish on my own; but even with that, by bed time everyone was more than ready for bed.  Except me… I can't sleep without a real shower.
