Ready for me to bounce around to a bunch of different topics?
For some reason this October has been extremely busy compared to previous years. I have been seriously bumming that we had not taken the kids to a Pumpkin Patch, so to make things a bit festive I decided to take the kids "Boo-ing" last night. My sister in law, Jenny, gave me the idea to drop off home made cupcakes instead of the normal candy. This is what I came up with:
Please don't be hurt if you didn't get a box. I only delivered in a 1/4 mile radius. lol. I had serious time restraints. Nothing like wanting to be festive, but screaming "HURRY UP! GET IN THE CAR! WE ONLY HAVE 20 MINUTES!" My sister, Lori, told me about a great spin on this...people drop off a festive cocktail on the front porch, and they leave a note saying "You've been BOO-ZED." Cute, huh? I totally think I should move to La Canada. They sound RIGHT UP MY ALLEY.
Here are the goodie bags that I told you I made for the kids classes:
I originally put a couple candies into each bag. Then I decided the lil boogers will have plenty of candy after Trick or Treating, so I opted for ONE candy, and added stickers.
Next up, the teachers.
I purchased small Yankee Candle tumblers and wrapped them in cellophane, then made tags.
In the midst of all this, I have been dealing with tile contractors. I came in right before they started grouting the downstairs shower. This is the lovely view that awaited me:
The top looks horrible. When I brought it up to them, they told me it looked great.
ARE YOU SERIOUS?
So, a made a phone call, and two more men showed up. They agreed with me...but the original two still thought it looked great. For the next ten minutes the five of us are discussing options on how to fix this. Suddenly, I look over, and standing next to us is Emily, holding a chewed up bra. My bra. My huge, old bra that Molly had chewed during some point in the day. Emily starts yelling to be heard over the tile discussion:
"This is Mommy's bra. The dog ate it. This was for her boobies."
ARE YOU SERIOUS????????????????
I looked at them men, grabbed the half eaten bra, and walked up the stairs. All the while the men watched me.
Still have no clue what to do with the tile.
On a random note, I don't like Izzy's hair on Grey's.
