Before you spill it, I’ll just tell everyone that the boys and I played a VERY long game of Clue this afternoon. Andy decided to make his guess after about three turns. We were sitting on the porch playing the game and we made Andy go inside to look at the cards in the “secret” envelope. Andy returned to the porch and said he had something to tell us. We shooed him away, not wanting him to ruin our game. TWO hours later, Ian made a guess at the cards. Ugh. We should have listened to Andy. The stupid enveloped had two room cards and a weapon card. Gah. Listen to the short people.
On the way home, we stopped at Costco to pick up two take and bake pizzas, batteries for Ian’s upcoming summer camp. Go figure, I was on an impulse-buying rampage. We bought a box of Sham-Wow’s (yes, they make you say WOW) for Ian to use as towels at camp and then I went totally crazy . . . are you sitting? I bought us new Tupperware! Fancy stuff with snap-lock lids. it means I’m old, doesn’t it, when I keep going to check the drawer with my new tupperware, doesn’t it? I’m insanely excited about this stuff. No more topping off nasty plastic ware with foil lids. No more messy tupperware drawer. Woohoo – does anything scream “I’m going to be 44 in a week” more than this?
Sadly, the kids and I all agreed we’re not getting out enough. We spent a full two hours messing with the new Sham-Wow’s. And we had a blast doing it. Anyone local with carpet who is willing to let us dump grape juice or red wine on your carpet to see what happens with the Sham-Wow’s? We’ll bring lunch!
Exciting stuff, I know. Tomorrow, we’re headed to WalMart and maybe even IKEA. I know, I know – bring the smelling salts.
