Father's Day

As I was making plans to visit my folks for Father's Day, the thought hit me that I, myself, would be celebrating the day from the viewpoint of a father for the first time. It kind of freaked me out.

The plan for the day was to pick up Brynn and Zoe and take them to visit, but Weezie had mentioned that the pump out at her cottage needed to be replaced. The Squeeze and I decided to meet her and the kids at the cottage, swap her pump and then visit my folks. How long could that possibly take? An hour? Two, tops?

About seven hours and a lot of frustration later, the pump was in but wouldn't hold a prime. On top of that, we somehow managed to break something somewhere causing water to spray all over me and requiring a return visit the following weekend to replace an overflow valve. But time was ticking, the kids' bedtime was fast approaching, and quite frankly we were exhausted. Weezie took the girls home to bed, The Squeeze and I went to visit my parents for a brief time before heading home to flop.

It wasn't exactly what I was expecting my first Father's Day to be, but I did get to spend it with the kids. I guess that's what it's all about.

Bloody hell, three posts in one day after nothing for three weeks????

BTW, Happy Father's Day!!! A little late, but they do say better late than never.
What can I say? It was a slow day here at the salt mine. :o)
Thanks for the HFD wishes. It's weird being something you thought you'd never be.
Oh, I understand. I know that I'd be suitably freaked if I were a mother all of a sudden.
