Reunions And Rekindlings, Part 2

-or-

TUTORIAL:

How to get a childhood friend to accept repayment of $5 that you embarrassingly had to borrow while feeling like crawling under a rock and dying.

Materials:
$5 bill
Ziploc bags in the following sizes: snack, sandwich, quart, gallon; 1 each
24 chocolate chip cookies, homemade preferred

1.)  Insert $5 in snack bag.  Add a note if preferred:

2.) Insert snack bag into sandwich bag along with cookies:

3.)  Insert sandwich bag into quart bag along with cookies:

4.)  Insert quart bag into gallon bag along with cookies:

5.) Sneak bag into target’s luggage.

Now you have successfully repaid your debt and managed to gift cookies as well!  This method can be used to present engagement rings, concert/theater tickets or keys to a new car.  I strongly warn against using this as a way of gifting puppies, kittens, goldfish, etc as this may have unexpected results.  Good luck!

As I may have mentioned, I had an old friend and his family come and visit over the Memorial Day weekend.  I hadn’t seen him in years and our kids got to meet each other and I finally got to meet his wife.  It was fun and relaxing other than this $5 fiasco.  And when I say fiasco, I mean in my own mind.  No one else would think anything of it, but I was mortified.  I shouldn’t have been as I’ve known him since middle school and he’s seen me puke, but I’m a loon.

Their visit was the motivation I needed to clean and paint the common spaces in the house and my craft room where they slept.  More on that to come in a later post, but I was batshit crazy in the days and weeks leading up to their visit trying to get everything done (hence the radio silence).   Good times!

I’m late posting this because I’m l-a-z-y. I received a delightful package on Wednesday (Tuesday mail did not run for a national day of mourning for former president Ford). Inside was love for me, the Mr. and the baby!

First, the love for meeeeee:

Do you see how low the level of party mix is in this bowl? That’s because I’m not only lazy, I’m also a pig. It’s been reduced by probably half since that picture was taken. Delicious. Also:

I guess since I’m kind of pervy the phrase HOURS and HOURS of “BY-YOURSELF ENJOYMENT” sound kind of creepy. Creepy in a hilarious way.

The Mr. received a box of chocolates and a Borders Gift Card! Poor fella has been working so much he has been too tired to go to the bookstore. I volunteered to spend his card for him, but was valiantly turned down.

Now for the baby:

A new fiend! It’s quite adorable and in a very appropriate color. The tag says “To our newest grandson. Welcome to the family!! Love, Nana & Pawpaw”. Here is a picture of the bear commandeering Kyou as sumo penguin looks on with approval:

Maybe I didn’t want a baby as badly as I wanted a playmate. At least I get both! A big big big BIG thank you to Trosy and David, my parents in Texas :) I’m so lucky!

Pucker up?

I had to make fun of this because that little face looks like a pucker. Which kind of made me think dirty thoughts. I found out though, it was supposed to be a surprised face, which could still be a little dirty.

Maybe it’s just me, I don’t know.
