Simple Sunday – Happy Mother’s Day. Here have a new Toilet Seat.

The day started off rather nicely.  Husband had convinced Cody that instead of serving me breakfast in bed this year, toast and coffee would suffice.  This would then allow me to have breakfast with all of them around the breakfast table.

After carefully eating my toast in bed so as not to leave behind crumbs and washing it down with coffee (all the while ooohing and ahhhing over a handmade note and crafts Carter made at school for me), I took a shower and readied myself for a morning stroll in our neighborhood.


When we got back, Husband made us a delicious breakfast of eggs, bacon, and sautéed veggies (with more coffee). 

I was digesting my breakfast and lesson planning when Husband came out of the bathroom and announced that, in addition to Costco, we would need to make a stop at Home Depot.  Now, I did not ask too many questions, but apparently while Husband was behind closed doors, the toilet seat broke. 

And so, we have a nice new toilet seat, just in time for Mother’s Day.

And yes, since it is my special day, I got to use it first.

  1. I applaud sensible gifts for the woman in my life, as do many, men, instead of frivolous trinkets and such. Toilet seat, perfect example . I once got my first wife a brand new vacuum cleaner for her birthday. Her response was that I could now sleep with and have sex with the vacuum cleaner. Some women have no appreciation for sensible gifts.

      Perhaps you got a sub par vacuum! 🙂

      The new toilet seat also has a slow release lid, so no more accidental slamming of the lid as one puts it down. I’m quite happy with it.
