The Home of Daddy's Day Dare! ~ I am just trying to stay above water

What’s up?

I received an email from WordPress saying if I do not post something very soon they will consider 3D dead or abandoned

and shut me down since I have not posted in a while.

I told them I was busy.

~ actually my kids have just been hogging the computer….its been hard to get on.

They replied: see my WordPress contract, Article 19, section 5, paragraph 8, where it mentions the consequences of an existing blog without a pulse.

So here I am, (remember me?) with a few pictures so I don’t lose my 3D blog.

The last time I left you we were midway through birthday season.

Last month was youngest daughter’s birthday. She enjoys helping her mom in the kitchen so she decided to have a cooking birthday party.

Ever heard of that?

Her and her friends produce a three course meal, over two hours, that they get to make and then eat.


First, was a really yummy and refreshing cranberry/grape fizzy drink.

Then they made their own pizzas, cutting up fresh vegetables.

And then they got to decide on what ingredients they wanted to put on their flat cookie-type cake.

Being some hungry creative youngsters you know it was delicious!

Her Skye-pie. it was AWEEEESOME!!

It was an innovative and different kind of b-day party and we think Skye had a lot of fun with her buds.

Along the lines of other blogs never gotten around to, I was considering doing another consumer advocate post on the company installed our solar panels (Vivant). But they stepped up and ended up making the situation right.

My gym also closed so I found a new one. But they altered the details of their contract within a week, which was making me want to do post on that outfit, if only to vent.

But they made it right too.

My oldest enjoys following me to the gym now

Another pretty girl getting buffed up for the summer.

Speaking of…. she just got her braces off after 14 months of restructuring her mouth and smile (and getting her to stop sucking her fingers). She was a bit apprehensive and nervous, not only about the routine but the outcome.

She did great and our movie star was all smiles when it was over.

This is her new smile.

She will probably need more braces in a few years after her molars come in. 

Kids…don’t suck your fingers!

Birthday season wound up last night as we ‘acknowledged’ my birthday.

Some not-so-sexy underwear and PJs 🙂

I am no longer celebrating it. In fact, the thought of getting older brings a tear to my eye as I think of all the things I have not done yet.

So, going forward, I am going to start subtracting a year on the date of my birth.

…and see if that helps my shoulders and knees feel any younger.


The summer is right around the corner!!

 Are YOU ready?

Work on some tans? Fun in the sun? Trips to the beach and pool parties?

I will leave you with one of my summertime-dance-poolside-beachside favs as we raise a toast to SUMMER..

Have a great weekend everyone!!

  1. Hi Nancy, Yes we are doing well. I am glad you it made you smile. I hope you and yours are doing well this weekend. Thanks for dropping by and saying hello

  2. It was fun for the kids. But i think you may be onto something with the adult version. Add in a little Wine Pairing for the finished product, as well as its preparation, and it would be fun. We have a greyhound, in reference to your last post. They are inspirational pets. No fat. Ripped bulging muscles, and couch potatoes. I am eager to see the rest of that story. Thank you for dropping by Laura! Have a great weekend..

    The birthday party looks like so much fun. I want to host one too! I guess for kids cooking is not so much of a chore as it is for some grown-ups, but maybe I can round up some adults who enjoy cooking.

  4. Ahhh,,, but you were giving birth to something really important. These are just birthdays. The cooking party was small but fun. And I got to eat the leftovers as the official Garbagecan Man. Hope you’re doing well Betsy..We will be back In less than a month. 🙂

  5. As someone who didn’t post for nearly a month, no remonstrances here. Glad to know you’re alive and the kids are well. The cooking bday party is new to me, but a great idea.

  6. Welcome back Andy,

    And thank you for giving me my laugh for the week! I am so glad to see that you and your family are doing well. Your daughters are lovely!


  7. Thank you Miss Napalm. Sorry it wasn’t much of a story. Yes staying busy and doing well. Thanks for not deleting me and actually stopping by. 🙂 Have a good weekend…
